Matt Ryan Shows A Desire To Learn

After an ugly loss against the Bucs, I'll take any good news I can get. That's why Matt Ryan being able to learn from his mistakes strikes me as a very encouraging sign:

“I made some decisions that weren’t very good, especially when you’re on the road, especially backed up,” Ryan said. “You can’t do those things as a quarterback. You’ve got to learn from them.”

There are a lot of young quarterbacks in this league who struggle, but not all of them are willing to show up early for film sessions. You have even fewer who suffer through a horrible first half (much of which is their own fault, it should be noted) and come back in the second half and pull it together. He's far from perfect, but he's clearly winning converts early on simply by putting in the work required of him.

The smartest thing this team can do is stick by Ryan and not pamper him, and so far they're doing a good job of it. Ryan himself will have an easier task this week against the Chiefs, but I'd hate to see what happens if noted quarterback killer and safety Bernard Pollard hits him. Hopefully we'll see some better throws out there this weekend.
