NFL Insider Shares A Hopeful Matt Ryan Comparison

By Lawrence Fernandez

 

Indianapolis Colts fans are thrilled to have Matt Ryan as their starting quarterback.

Why wouldn’t they be if they will have a former Most Valuable Player under center?

Aside from that individual distinction, he was also a one-time First-Team All-Pro and a four-time Pro Bowler.

But beyond the achievements and the stats, history is favoring the Colts, as shared by NFL Network’s James Palmer.

Palmer shared the list of quarterbacks who switched team after having at least 50,000 passing yards and winning an MVP.

Aside from Ryan, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Brett Favre made the shift.

Favre playing for the Minnesota Vikings must have been like a bad dream for Green Bay Packers fans.

After all, he was the team’s Iron Man with over 200 consecutive starts and won a Super Bowl with the franchise.

As for Brady and Manning, they kept their winning ways despite changing uniforms.

Manning helped the Denver Broncos win Super Bowl 50, the franchise’s third win in six tries.

Meanwhile, Brady won Super Bowl LV in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Following that though, Ryan has a great chance of giving Indianapolis a Super Bowl.

But while that’s easier said than done, the Colts have a roster that could go all the way.

 

Colts Are Flying Under The Radar

They might not be the first team that football fans will say regarding the top teams in the AFC.

However, the Colts do have the talent to win the games that matter.

Aside from Ryan, they have Jonathan Taylor, who led the league in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns last season.

They also have Michael Pittman Jr., who is poised for a strong season.

Their offensive line with Quenton Nelson and Ryan Kelly is also one of the league’s best.

Finally, a defense that has DeForest Buckner, Yannick Ngakoue, Darius Leonard, Kenny Moore II, and Stephon Gilmore can shut down the opposition.

Add Ryan to the mix and the Colts should be able to have an easier time putting points on the board

I concur - on all points made.

 

I have tickets for the Colts home opener vs the Chiefs and the Colts home game vs the Chargers!!

 

Both games will be HUGE measuring sticks for the overall improvement the team has made.

 

Opening the season 3 - 0 is within reach!!

    • We can keep making excuses. I've said pretty much the same thing. Our OL has regressed in the last 2 years. Suring up the middle should be first priority.  That's why I suggested moving Smith to RG. Pressure in the QBs face is far worse than the sides. For example,  all those years NE had near top OL with Brady there Tackles got more credit than they deserved.  Of those tackles that went to free agency how many were successful with new team? Not many at all. There interior lineman who made free agency how better outcomes on different teams. My point is you can scheme deficiencies on the edge better than the interior. The poster of this post has a point.
    • Aww that really sucks. Fingers crossed he comes back strong next year - he deserves it. 
    • Sweet, Ya you got the spot.    Dm the email you want me to send the invite to.  You've been around a long time, glad to have you on board. 
    • It’s one practice.    One.    And from one practice you’ve extrapolated that this will be a problem all season long and we’ll miss the playoffs.    All from one practice.    I think you’re reading way too much into way too little.   Is it possible you’re right?  Sure. But it’s not likely.       OL play is typically slow to come around.   It takes time to gel.    Whatever the line is today, it should get better over time.    It started slow last year when injuries hit 4 of our 5 starting lineman.  But eventually the line gelled and Taylor ran for 1800 yards.   Remember?    This year we have two new starters on the line.   It’s going to take time.  Give it time.  
    • Im not a big fan of responding to a post with a mountain if stats, but these are pretty simple and straight forward.   Matt Ryan has 100 completions in 12 practices of 11 on 11 drills.   Thus doesn’t include 7 on 7 or any other drills, just 11 on 11.    Here’s how the receptions breakdown:   1.   Pittman    30 2.  Granson   14 3.  MAC.         13 4.  Taylor.        11 5.   Hines.       10 6.   Campbell.  8 7.    Pierce.       5 8.   Dulin.         4 9.   Ogletree.   3 10.  Patmon.    1 11.  Coutee.     1   That's 100 receptions.   Campbell is right in the middle of the group.   And 4 of the 5 WRs with fewer receptions are behind him.  PC is NOT having a quiet camp.   This is misinformation and bad analysis.   About 10 days ago fans here were predicting Granson wouldn’t make the 53.   How does that look now?    Could PC get cut?   Sure.  But it’s a long shot.
