Matt Ryan had a historic run with the Atlanta Falcons that included winning an MVP along with an Offensive Player of the Year as well as a Super Bowl appearance. He is now en route to Indianapolis, leaving Atlanta as one of the most successful players in franchise history.

When the Falcons drafted Matt Ryan with the 3rd pick overall in 2008, he was brought in as the face of the franchise. Well, Ryan proved that he is, as his rookie season saw him lead the team to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth.

Since then he’s clinched the aforementioned MVP and OPOY, but at the same time he’s also led his team to 6 10-win seasons. An incredible stat from Ryan is the fact that he has thrown for at least 4000 yards in 10 straight seasons and almost made it to 11 but fell 32 yards behind in 2021.

These past few seasons haven’t been the flashiest or garish, but Matt Ryan certainly has a few more years in the tank. Ian Rapoport certainly thinks so as he joins The Pat McAfee Show to discuss the former MVP’s trade to Indianapolis.

In his show “The Pat McAfee Show”Pat McAfee was quoted as saying “Matt Ryan, as soon as I got wind that it was possible and started thinking about it, I thought, yeah, that’s exactly the person we need. Everything I was mad about with Carson is the complete opposite. That is exactly right. That’s our type, that’s what we needed. I was very excited about that.”

Ian Rapoport joined the show and was quoted as saying “I think it’s a good trade. I think he has enough left, probably 2 years, worst case scenario 1 year which is fine. You still have to find your franchise man, but then again the money isn’t bad and you only gave up a 3. At worst, he’ll be an average quarterback. This is the absolute worst. You have great running game and great defense so you’re in the mix.”

Matt Ryan really could be the last piece of the puzzle for the Colts. Jonathan Taylor has a great rushing game and their defense was certainly good last season and looks set to be back up there. The only fight they could have is if Michael Pittman isn’t a true No. 1 receiver. But Matty Ice might still be good enough to overcome that.
