Matt Ryan has looked terrific in camp. He reminds me of Tom Brady when Brady came into the league. The Patriots QB was skinny and slow, just like Ryan was in his first two seasons in Atlanta. But Ryan’s been locked in that weight room for the last six months, and it shows.
He’s bigger, he’s stronger, he’s faster. He looked good on the bootleg when I saw him practice against the Jaguars on Tuesday. His deep ball is significantly better. He threw a 60-yard pass that Roddy White was unable to close on, demonstrating his new arm strength
Ryan told me that he has a lot of leeway running the Falcons’ offense. I think he and the Falcons are poised for a big season.
