The NFL has partnered with Tide in the “Turn to Cold” campaign in an effort to encourage people to wash their clothes in cold water to save on greenhouse gas emissions, electricity and to save money in the process. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been a part of this effort and he joined me on the podcast to discuss this and a variety of topics.

Part of what we discussed:

  • The campaign to “turn to cold” with Tide and the NFL
  • His commercial with Stone Cold Steve Austin and Ice T
  • Whether or not the custom Falcons washing machine has Matt telling us to “Get F*&^ing Set”
  • How he’s adjusting to fatherhood and whether or not he and Sarah are going through the terrible twos (and threes) right now
  • Some of his best runs over his career and which one is his favorite
  • Advice he’d give to a rookie Matt Ryan and the advice he gives to the young guys on the team
  • His quick thoughts on teammates and opponents he’s faced over the years, including Coach Mike Smith, Luke Kuechly, Michael Turner and more
