Ergo Proxy Posted July 16, 2020 Share Posted July 16, 2020 2. MATT RYAN, ATLANTA FALCONS -48.0 difference in PFF passing grade when pressured, 39% pressure rate The 2019 campaign was rough for Ryan and the Falcons, and a lot of it had to do with troubles along the offensive line. The Falcons attempted to bolster the group up front with the addition of not one but two first-round offensive linemen — Chris Lindstrom at right guard and Kaleb McGary at right tackle — but it wasn’t smooth sailing for the rookies. Lindstrom showed some promise, but he played in only five games all season due to injury. McGary, on the other hand, struggled mightily in his first season of action. He was the only tackle in the NFL to allow double-digit sacks and quarterback hits. Meanwhile, Ryan had a top-five passing grade in the NFL from a clean pocket in 2019. ... Hoping year 2 for the right side and committing to wide zone w/ Gurley now in fold mean a more balanced attack and therefore total snaps in obvious pass situations are lowered. Maybe Dirk and the system comes around year 2...by now you’d think players would have more time to study up and then it’s the reps. I could see a slow start to the season on offense and a sharp improvement after a couple games if that scenario holds true.
