Is Matt Ryan’s first slump just a momentary downturn?

We begin by stipulating that Matt Ryan established a ridiculously high standard in a ridiculously short time. He was the greatest rookie quarterback the NFL has seen — better than Marino, better than Big Ben — and there seems no reason he won’t develop into a truly great quarterback soon. But here I borrow a favorite Ryan expression: “That said … ”

That said, he hasn’t been quite as good in Year 2 as in Year 1. Perhaps it’s because the Falcons have played a wicked schedule — the first soft game comes Sunday against Washington — but his numbers are down in virtually every category. And it isn’t just the numbers. For reasons unclear, Matty Ice doesn’t seem as cool.

After the Falcons lost in New Orleans, I asked Thomas Dimitroff, whose drafting of Ryan in 2008 changed the course of this franchise, if he’s concerned. “Absolutely not,” the GM said. “Defenses have been giving him different looks. But he’s been resilient; he has a short memory. I have all the faith in the world in Matt. We know the things he’s going to do will be positive.”

Same question to Mike Smith. “I’m not concerned at all,” the coach said. “We judge on 16 games, not one game or not three games. Statistically it hasn’t been his best [stretch of games], but we can’t make that judgment until the end of the season.”

To Ryan’s credit, he has the Falcons at 4-3. Given their schedule, they might well have started 3-4 or worse. But now we turn to those pesky numbers. Ryan is the NFL’s 18th-rated passer;  he was 11th last season. His rating is 82.6; it was 87.7 last season. His completion percentage has dropped from 61.1 to 59.7, which isn’t a major decline, but he has thrown nine interceptions in seven games; last season he threw 11 in 16.

His receivers have failed him on occasion. Michael Jenkins dropped a cinch first down in the Superdome, and a diving Roddy White couldn’t hold a touchdown at the end line. But we should also note that Ryan in Year 2 has the considerable asset of Tony Gonzalez, and still the Falcons, sixth in the NFL in total offense in 2008, are 17th now.

Much of that has to do with the decline of the running game, but they got what they needed from Michael Turner (151 swift and powerful yards) on Monday night, and the beset defense didn’t play all that badly. The Falcons lost because of two interceptions: The first was returned for a touchdown at the end of the first half; the second came when the Falcons had a chance to nose ahead with 8 1/2 minutes left.

Are you concerned about Matt Ryan?

Some fans contend neither was Ryan’s fault. White was bumped out of his route on the first throw and the second was deflected by Jonathan Vilma. But Ryan himself called the first interception “a poor decision on my part,” and on the second he had a clear view of Vilma downfield. He needed to get the ball over him. He did not.

Is it nit-picking to note that a second-year quarterback had his second-worst game — only Tampa Bay on Sept. 14, 2008, has yielded a lower rating — in a pressurized environment? Perhaps. “We say we like to evaluate ourselves at the end of a season,” Ryan said Monday, and the season does have nine games remaining.

Then this: “That said, I’ve got to play better. As a quarterback, I’ve got to protect the ball.”

He knows his position and accepts the responsibilities. He is, as ever, an impressive guy. The guess is that he’ll battle through this downturn and lead his team to the playoffs again. But these past three games have offered the first extended glimpse of an imprecise Ryan, and the effect has been jarring. We’ve already come to expect so much more.

Ryan was forcing the ball in there a little bit this year, but he has had more pressure from defenses this year than last due to the lack of a consistent running game. Ryan is a competitor and a winner. He will be fine.

This schedule is a tough one too, and the defense has had too many holes to fill with young players. As long as the Falcons come out with a winning season in the end and somehow make the playoffs, then this 2009 season will go down as remarkable. The Falcons have NEVER had back to back winning seasons. These Falcons can do it. Go Falcons!!

Ryan will pull through. I’ve seen enough to believe he as “the stuff.” It’s the guy’s second year and most people are behaving like he’s supposed to come in performing miracles like levitating over the field and catching the ball for receivers. Look at history. How long did it take Peyton, Eli, Warner, Bradshaw, Staubach, Lamonica, to reach the heights we’re expecting of Ryan. He’s a year and change into a career with a team that two seasons ago could have qualified for a federal disaster relief fund. He’s fine. Had a couple of less than spectacular games on a team that is not upper echelon material yet. Such is life. Breathe and relax people.

Ryan was forcing the ball in there a little bit this year, but he has had more pressure from defenses this year than last due to the lack of a consistent running game.

Turner is ranked 8th in the NFL in rushing. Ryan is ranked 18th. The running back is not the problem.

One could say the reason Turner is only ranked number 8, is because Ryan is ranked so low, so Turner might need a better passer so he will not have run against 9 in the box on every play.

Ryan doesn’t have the biggest arm, but he has enough arm. More importantly, he has the mental toughness, leadership and desire to succeed. Ints sometimes seem to come in a spate of games. Ryan is also a guy who could go 2-3 or more games without a crucial pick.

However the most important thing to remember about the Falcons and Matt Ryan is this: Football is a team sport. Ryan will usually be on, but it’s naive to think he will always be on. When your QB struggles, other players have to pick up the slack. That means blockers giving more time in the pocket, greater concentration and effort by receivers, special teams winning the field position battle, the defense making key stops. The Falcons do those things and they’ll be fine.

He is, as you said, an impressive guy. . .and a very good quarterback. However, in the last two games, he has not had much time to find open receivers. I have absolutely no concerns about the qb position. Parts of the so-called “fan base” would not be happy with Ryan if he threw 10 td’s per game, and had a perfect passer rating. I’ve been a season ticket holder for all but the first two years of the team’s existence, and I’ve never been more optimistic about the future. I hope Matt doesn’t read these blogs or listen to sports talk radio, but if he does, I hope he realizes that the vast majority of true fans of this team are behind him. He’s a winner, pure and simple.

He has not been as cool and comfortable in the pocket. And while he supposedly strengthened his arm in the off season, his sideline throws looks weaker to me. He is looking to Gonzo too much rather than his progressions.

After watching Flaco for a few games, I do wish Matt had a better arm to go with his mental game aspect.

Maybe also it’s because his LT is not performing like a first-round pick some games, and Matt has lost his comfort about his blind-side.

Where is the safety valve throw for him when max-protect is in and only 2 go out? That’s a scheme defect that cost him several sacks this week.

Where are the screen passes to control the rush? Where’s the no-huddle?The OC shares the blame in Matt’s regression. Not enough play diversity and the D seems to know the plays.

In case the reference is missed in my name I’m Cowboys fan who lives in the Atl area. Going into last year’s Draft I said Matt Ryan didn’t have the arm strength & made bad decisions when pressured which is why he threw as many picks as TD’s his SR year. Well last year he surprised me a little then showed more of his true lack of skill in the Playoff loss. Now this season with teams taking away the run which forces them into passing we’re seeing the real Matty “NON Ice, I just threw another pick 6” Ryan! IF you make the playoff & we have a rematch we’ll just have to bloody your noses again! So all you Falcon bandwagoners time to jump ship & go back into your nest so you can come out when they have their next winning season!

Everyone thought Sanchez was Joe Namath after 3 games. It takes a while for a young qb. The good thing here is no one will outwork this kid. He will do the film time and eventually he will “react” instead of “thinking” where to go with the ball. Brees and Manning (Payton) are a perfect examples of that and it didn’t happen in their first 2 years. Matt Ryan is the real deal, but let’s be realistic and let’s be patient. There is no substitute for experience.

Good article Mark……I asked myself this question after Monday night loss….Answer was no because Matt has a great intangible—will to win and will do what it takes to get better..Plus he has a great coaching staff around him & great GM-Owner that will surround him with talent to get job done. Drew Brees is so good now, in part, because he has experience and he is doing such great preparation work. Brees is peaking in his career and Brees has a great coach in Sean Payton…Jon Gruden called Brees and Payton football geniuses. Think that Ryan & Mulaky can develop into this type of tandem as well. I told myself Monday night….the the Falcons are still working through THE PROCESS as Smith & Dimitrioff put it…..Matt is still developing…..really think that He can get to Elite QB level…It is a something to watch Brees surgically attack a defense…Atlanta defense did well against Brees by the way with our talent level at this time. Matt has to correct mistakes and look at what his is missing on these INT’s and then just go out and play with fire in his belly..Offense does need more production from receivers other than Roddy or Tony…Mike Jenkins has to step up his game and we really need another weapon at receiver…need 4 good receivers…need Norwood back as we need some more production on running backs with swing pass out of backfield…..Do believe that we are on the path to have some great yrs in Atlanta down the road.

It’s pretty explanatory really though. Matt Ryan throws to spots meaning he throws before the player is there. If a guy gets knocked down and there is no call… looks like an easy pick. The last pass he threw wasn’t an arm strength thing, the Falcon line somehow let a guy come free (when only 3 were rushing) and it rushed his pass so he threw it from the 40 off balance. He still got roughly 50 yards out of it and didn’t have maximum loft. His arm strength isn’t Flacco’s but it’s not bad.

If Arm strength made QB’s Kyle Boller and Jeff George would be revered as superstars. It matters a lot more the way he plays otherwise. He does have to make better decisions especially under duress but the only people whining about Ryan now are people who never wanted him here. He’s learning, he’s getting better. Drew Brees wasn’t this good when he was learning in San Diego. This is a fantastic time to be a Falcons fan we just have to be patient. Ryan is fine.

In my 3,000.00 suits at football games, I’m trying to be a playa pimp for the hunnies, but the hunnies don’t like a tired ole fool who can’t win freakin playoff games.

I let my ATM machine walk out the door. For what? So I could

Spend 72-million on a weak armed choking punk

Spend 50-million on a back to make him look good

Spend a fortune on an aging hall of famer plus a 2nd rounder

Lose a freakin fortune on a marketing campaign to support this fool

Wasted a freakin ton of draft picks

Hired a Belichick wanna be coach

Hired a Big Tuna jock sniffing GM

Turned my back on the paying fans

What do I have to show for it? Not a damn thing! I have spent over 250-million trying to make this loser look like Peyton Manning and he is looking more Ryan “Freaking” Leaf.

Now comes December 6th, I have to look in my dome and see all those MV7 Red, Black and Eagle MV7 Jerseys laughing at my dumb butt, while the freakin Eagles put up a 50 spot on my Kmart defense.

I am putting an end to this freakin nightmare, no matter what these losers say – I want my sell outs back. I want my playoffs back. MV7 please come back!

Remember the good ole days when I pushed your wheel chair around. I wish I could push this loser chump NOODLE ARM off a cliff!

I’m happy to have #2 as our QB. The alternative? Jump off the bandwagon and go back into eternal rebuilding mode? No thanks.

Our three losses have come on the road, in intimidating buildings, against teams with a collective 17-4 record. We laid eggs against Dallas and New England – played the Saints much better than expected (someone even said “no chance in hell”).

It’s hard to single anyone out for the offensive woes. Ryan needs to play better, for sure. OL seems to be struggling running and passing. Turner’s had one good game (with way too many fumbles) and we are out of back-ups. WR’s have had crucial drops. Our last year’s bread-and-butter plays are getting stuffed – maybe our game planning is struggling to adjust the other teams’ adjustments after a year of film?

Nice try but that EXCUSE won’t fly this season.

The Ravens defense gives up 19.6 points a game

Matt Ryan is the best thing to happen to Atlanta Falcon football in a long time. He is a smart kid and is a hard worker, continually working to improve. It was almost unavoidable that he would have somewhat of a let down as teams adjust to his style of play and increase the pressure on him. It hasn’t helped that our running game fell off this year, but all of this is easy to correct.

He is young, and talented, and best of all learning. He keeps the team playing as a team, as does Coach Smith. Norwood’s injury hurt the running game, and Turner needed to turn it up a notch, which he did in the New Orleans game. The two interceptions are regrettable, but forgiveable. The one near the end of the game was due to a great defensive play when the ball was tipped by Vilma.

The toughest part of our schedule is now behind us except for needing to play the Saints one more time, but it is in our house the next time. The outcome may be more to our liking when December comes around. We are playoff bound and will break the cycle of not having back to back winning seasons. Things are in good hands with Coach Smith and Matt leading the way. Go Falcons!

I know this much….Matt Ryan’s off-field behavior will never worry me. His on-field performance doesn’t, either. The Cowboys and Saints brought pressure, and without Norwood & Snelling to backup Michael Turner, we didn’t ge to use him in pass-blocking schemes nearly as much. In essence, when we went out to run, they knew it; when we set up to pass, they knew it. The fact that we were able to move the ball at all – and as much as we did, speaks volumes of the talent we have on offense – QB included. Getting Norwood and Snelling healthy again will make all the difference in the world.

You can look at his QB ratings all you want; he doesn’t have the numbers-plumping screen passes in his arsenal without Norwood, and that DOES make a difference; and be honest – defenses are keying on Gonzalez. He’s a shoe-in Hall-of-Famer for a reason.

Matt Ryan is NOT the problem.

Mark were you watching the same game? That ball was thrown with such a lob, like it was a helium balloon, that both players had to stop for the ball, wait 3 seconds and then make a play on it.

A player with “REAL” arm strength like Flacco would have thrown that ball with far less air under it.

The Atlanta Fans, AJC Sports writers and Matt Ryan deserve one another. They would accept being mediocre, rather than admitting they were wrong about their assessment of their quarterback.

They can care less about success like other franchises that have Lombardi Trophies.

They are totally pleased with their quarterback this season, even though the past 3 games his qb ratings were 68, 66 & 46.

I say if a fan is happy with being mediocre, then they are in a happy marriage. For that, they should be proud of their quarterback, but don’t complain when you have to watch the playoffs in your living room next to your quarterback.

After all, you wouldn’t want to break a 43 year ritual.

good points mark, but like most people i feel ryan will bounce back. the quarterback position is one of the least of our worry areas. however, the two things am concerned with relative to Ryan are the drops (his confidence level must be “dropping” with Jenkins, who has really cost him some drives) that will continue to push him to focus only on sure hands Tony…and the continuity we need with mularky. I don’t want to see a new offensive coordinator in next year. I think it is critical to Matt’s development to have some continuity. I hear mularky’s name comes up in regards to head coaching positions – not sure how much merit those rumors have.

Mark were you watching the same game? That ball was thrown with such a lob, like it was a helium balloon, that both players had to stop for the ball, wait 3 seconds and then make a play on it.

A player with “REAL” arm strength like Flacco would have thrown that ball with far less air under it.

Man, you got burned, Bradley. Conversation over.

Falco wins the “no one gives a s#@t” award for awesomeness.

Choke = Bad News = ConVick Supporter 2

This is the SAME person, people.

He hates Matt Ryan for racial reasons

You hurt my feelings :)

Anyway, what does that have to do with 68, 66 & 46 QB RATINGS :)

“Dimitroff is no Tuna”- You’re damn right he’s not. Dimitroff didn’t waste a 2nd round pick on Pat White.

Who has more rings – Big Tuna or Dimitroff 2 and done?
