Crunchtime Stats Show Matt Ryan Is Properly Nicknamed

↵

Look at this:

↵
Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan was about as hot as a quarterback can be every time the Falcons trailed. At the various times the Saints were leading, Ryan completed 15 of 18 passes and had a 147.5 passer rating. He also threw two touchdown passes while trailing. Both of the touchdown passes came out of the shotgun formation with three wide receivers and five defensive backs on the field.

For that nugget, we're giving Pat Yasinkas a pass for yesterday's mixup. And we're assuming The Falcoholic has reinstated Ryan's college handle after a critical interception against Pittsburgh put Ice on ice.
