Matt Ryan played 14 glorious seasons with the Atlanta Falcons but will now be playing for another team for the first time in his career. The seasoned veteran moves north to play for them Indianapolis Colts in 2022, something Stephen A. Smith believes makes them a real challenger.

In his 14 seasons in Atlanta, Matt Ryan had 10 straight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards and narrowly missed finishing 11th in 2021. He also led the Falcons to 6 10-win seasons. Of course, he’s best known for his 2016 campaign, in which he brought home MVP honors along with an Offensive Player of the Year.

Ryan was thrilled with the #3 pick overall and would be the face of the franchise in Atlanta. That’s certainly a lot of pressure, but he clearly handled it easily as he led the team to an 11-5 record and a playoff spot.

His last few years have been on the decline, but Ryan certainly has a little more in the tank and could be enough to take the Colts to the playoffs and beyond as their offense revolves around Jonathan Taylor. Stephen A. Smith recently shared his thoughts on the subject.

In a segment of ESPN ‘First Take’Stephen A. Smith was quoted as saying “With Jonathan Taylor, with the offensive line, with the coach, and with a quarterback who, like Carson Wentz, is no mistake, we have to talk about the Indianapolis Colts when we talk about the AFC.”

When asked if he thinks the Colts are a real Super Bowl threat, Smith said “Yeah! We saw weaknesses in Kansas City. We clearly saw some weaknesses in Buffalo. I believe the Indianapolis Colts have a legitimate chance of winning the division. If they win the division, we’re talking about two playoff games .With Jonathan Taylor, the offensive line and the quarterback, I think you have to count Indy in the picture.”

It would certainly be a quick turnaround for Indy if they posed a legitimate Super Bowl threat in 2022. Especially given the bad deal with Carson Wentz. Matt Ryan is clearly not their quarterback for the future and he won’t be there very long. But if he can put together a couple of quality seasons, they could have a real shot at the Lombardi.
