Matt Ryan and his sophmore season?

49 posts in this topic

His slump near the end of the season has to be somewhat disconcerting to Falcons fans.

They have a tougher schedule next season than they did this season. He'll still do well, but not as well, and I don't see them making the Playoffs. I think only one team comes out of the South with a spot, due to our tough schedules (NFC East, AFC East).

Let's just hope Jake Delhomme plays as good as Matt Ryan next year

Toughness of the schedule can't be determined immediately.. Everyone though the chargers were going to own people this past year but they struggled.. WITHIN their weak division. This year, we had a strong division and a fairly difficult schedule and we came out fine. "Weak" or not, we won't find out until the season starts. Matt Ryan may fall into that slump but as a follower of the ACC, he was pretty consistent in college. May not have the same numbers, but he'll have the same impact.

Who cares about Matty Ryan. He doesn't deserve a thread on this board.

This.

At least not Panther section.

In my opinion.

If you give a good D coord. one year of tape, they will make pretty good QB's look very average. You need to be really good to continue to do so.

I think Ryan is the 'real deal' as far as potential to be truly great. Will he have a 'sophomore slump'? Maybe, but so what? We won't really know about him until a few years from now anyways, after he has harnessed the value of experience and other factors (assuming he stays healthy, that is). But I think he showed a lot, and while they, like us, may have benefited from a somewhat weak schedule, the Falcons turnaround was still quite impressive. He made some glaring rookie mistakes in their playoff loss, but at least they can rightly say that, unlike us, they were competitive, and played the Cards tough on the Cards home field.

The pundits and alleged experts for the league are quite high on him, and I haven't seen anything to make them appear to be wrong. I tell you what, I'd gladly take him as is for fitting into a Panthers uniform. I'll take him in a heartbeat!

I hate the Falcons but he had a real good season for a rookie, can't deny that.

With that said though now that teams have film on him I expect it won't be nearly as easy.

I think there will be a TON of pressure on the whole falcons franchise to best their performance this season

matt ryan will be a huge part of that, most fans will expect him to be perfect since his rookie season was so successful

I think he will be a huge threat next season if the entire falcons team stays on their game, but I don't think he is ready to carry the team by himsself
