New Orleans Saints: Ranking the quarterbacks in the NFC South
Sorry Matty Ice, you aren’t the best quarterback in the NFC South. Does Matt Ryan have the least talented arm? No. Is he the fourth-best quarterback overall? Yes.
Tom Brady and Drew Brees are more efficient, accurate, and they know how to manage the game better than Ryan. I trust Teddy Bridgewater to take care of the football well, but be able to make more plays on the run and with his legs.
Matt Ryan had 26 touchdowns to 14 interceptions last year.
To sum it up, that’s not very good. Yes, he’s been to a Super Bowl, and he’s made some big passes throughout the last two years. Unfortunately, he hasn’t made a Pro Bowl since 2016, and he hasn’t had a winning record since 2017.
Matt Ryan had a worse completion percentage and quarterback rating than some of his NFC South quarterback opponents. He posted a 92.1 QBR and completion percentage of 66.2%. On the other hand, Bridgewater posted a 99.1 QBR and 67.9% completion percentage.
To give some benefit of the doubt, Ryan has an awful offensive line. Saints All-Pro defensive end, Cameron Jordan, can testify to that, as he sacked Matt Ryan four times on Thanksgiving. His 35-year-old body can’t take it if he wants to play when he’s 40.
Well for the 2020 season, Matt Ryan will look to bounce back to the Super Bowl and aim to bring back the days where he was league MVP. Let’s take a look at a new face in the NFC South who comes in at No. 3
