Matt Ryan Finally Matt Ryan'd
We were getting pretty close. It seemed like every single week I was being forced to question one of the only things in sports that I know to be an absolute fact. I've spent damn near 9 seasons crafting my case that Matt Ryan is nothing more than an average NFL quarterback and he was growing closer and closer to making me look like a fool with one of his patented 1-in-every-3 Pro Bowl caliber years that always seem to help people justify their blind respect for his mediocre accomplishments. The wins were starting to pile up. The MVP talks were beginning to include his name. It was a goddamn nightmare scenario for someone that has sentenced himself to dying on the hill screaming that Matt Ryan is overrated. That's why it was so refreshing to see Eric Berry return a game winning two point conversion that would have silenced every single Falcons fan if Falcons fans weren't primarily spoken for by artificial crowd noise. It was a much needed reminder that Matt Ryan still has tendency to go full "Matt Ryan" at the worst possible time. From up one to down one on a play that was designed to give them a three point lead? That was so ridiculously unlikely that it could have only been orchestrated by the Falcons starting quaterback or the Saints special teams unit. If that pick-2 doesn't give New Orleans fans hope that the end of this season will be just as devastating for their rivals as the end of every other season that Matt Ryan has been under center then I don't now what will.
