Atlanta Falcons: 3 things we can learn from Bucs’ Super Bowl win
2. Building around Matt Ryan can work & there’s no reason the Falcons can’t turn it around
Matt Ryan isn’t Tom Brady, we all know that.
That being said, Ryan is by no means a poor quarterback who can’t get the job done. The Buccaneers found a way to accentuate Brady’s strengths and hide his weaknesses. They changed up the offense and they put playmakers around him (see Leonard Fournette, Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown for examples) in addition to the ones they already had in Chris Godwin and Mike Evans.
The Falcons need to find ways to accentuate Ryan’s strengths and hide the weaknesses. That means finding a capable running back, solidifying the offensive line and running a system that allows him to have success.
The Bucs finished 7-9 in 2018 and 2019, and they finished 5-11 in 2017. Now, they’re Super Bowl champions. I understand that the Falcons are tight on money this offseason, but don’t tell me things can’t be turned around.
