Matt Ryan had his best statistical year last season. With over a 3/1 TD/Int ratio, over 3700 yards, and a 95 QB rating, he performed well and had a number of 4th quarter comeback drives.
This season, he is on pace to throw for more yards, and his Yds/Attempt ratio is much better, but his QB rating, # of game winning drives, and especially his TD/Int ratio are faltering, to put it mildly.
I can't help but wonder, could could some of Ryan's inconsistencies be tied to the new qb coach? Most fans attributed Ryan's early success to Musgrave, who is now the OC for the Vikings. Bratkowski was deemed to be at the very least an adequate replacement to help Ryan achieve the greatness many of us thought was coming.
Ponder is doing surprisingly well for the Vikings, and Ryan is not quite taking the next step. The role of a qb coach may not be a huge one for many teams, but considering that Ryan has more weapons, but is struggling more is a bit perplexing. Granted, there are other factors as well, such as strength of schedule, bad OLine play, and WR's playing hot potato with the pigskin; but, could Bratkowski share some blame, or at least, the absence of Musgrave be a factor?
What do you guys think?
