Matt Ryan has had all the statistical success you could hope for likely ending his career as a top-five quarterback in nearly every major passing category. While this may not be accurate to his skill level it speaks to his production and consistency over the last decade and a half. Ryan is arguably the most accomplished veteran in the league who is yet to win a Super Bowl.
Part of his reputation around the league is due to the failures in the infamous 28-3 collapse against Tom Brady’s Patriots. While Ryan deserves very little blame for the collapse it will follow him throughout his career regardless of what else he accomplishes.
Winning a Super Bowl at this point in his career simply would be the crowning achievement for a player who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame when all is said and done. Looking at the team Ryan has around him it seems definite if healthy this team will reach the playoffs and be a real contender throughout the 2022 season.
Despite this Ryan is not going to be able to win an ever-elusive Super Bowl due to the talent around him in the AFC. Looking around the league the Chiefs, Bills, Ravens, Broncos, and perhaps the Dolphins will all be real problems that Ryan has to contend with. While the Colts could still make a move the majority of the AFC has far better weapons offensively and quarterbacks who at this point in their career are better than Ryan.
While moving to the Colts will give Matt a chance to remind the league how great he is they aren’t a team that is likely to make a run to the Super Bowl. Ryan’s best chance of winning a ring would have been joining his old coach in San Francisco on what appears to be a loaded roster.
A roster that was one botched interception away from defeating the eventual Super Bowl-winning Rams. Ryan has accomplished a lot in this league but unfortunately for the veteran, it appears that winning a Super Bowl will be the one accolade that continues to elude him in what should be a great 2022 season.
