1. Matt Ryan
When the Carson Wentz-led Colts lost to the Jaguars more than a year ago it was looked at completely differently than we should now view the tough loss. Wentz was blamed and labeled as the problem losing to a team that was heading in the right direction with a superior quarterback and set to win a playoff game this past season.
The Colts on the other hand were heading in the wrong direction and not the easy landing spot many expected for Matt Ryan. Outside of beating Patrick Mahomes, Matt Ryan’s season is full of lowlights and tough moments for the Atlanta legend. Whether it is Ryan’s age or the Colts’ roster or a mix of both there isn’t any arguing this move was a disaster.
Ryan threw 13 interceptions and set a career-high in fumbles with 15 in only 12 games. It was a complete disaster for a player that was expected to bring stability and be the missing piece for the Colts to finally return to the playoffs.
While there is no defense for the turnover issues that plagued Ryan in his first season after leaving Atlanta it is worth noting that despite being benched twice Ryan is the only Indy quarterback to win a game for the team in the 2022 season.
