Does Matt Ryan Belong Among The Greatest QB’s Of All Time?

4 of 6

We should start calling Ryan “Mr. Automatic” because he’s been just that consistent. He’s played behind good offensive lines, he had bad offensive lines. He’s had a solid running game and there have been seasons he really needed it. Even though he has been through all types of scenarios on offense his numbers have never been bad.

You can chalk him up for at least 4,000 passing yards and 20 touchdowns in a season. The only year he didn’t throw for 20 touchdowns was his rookie season and he failed to reach the 4,000-yard passing mark in each of his three seasons due to the fact they were not trying to put the ball in his hands at that time. Once they unleashed that arm, 4,000 yards just came too easy.

His interception numbers have always been between 7-17 which isn’t the best, but its certain far from what some of these “greats” have done (EX. Eli Manning).

He’s consistently been in the top 10 in passing completions, passing yards, passing touchdowns, passing completion percentage and QBR.

His consistency is something I’ve felt had always been underappreciated. Some teams go years, hell even decades with getting that kind of production from the quarterback position let alone one play from the quarterback position.
