Thank you, Matt Ryan: GET F***ING SET

Hands down, this is one of Atlanta fans’ favorite memories of the longtime signal caller.

I’m going to go ahead and kick this section off with one of my very favorite moments. An iconic moment, really. GET F***ING SET.

People had this idea of Matt Ryan as a bland, vanilla, milquetoast kind of guy, and he’s really anything but. He’s got a fantastic sense of humor and a tendency to use, um, colorful language from time to time, which is something I find incredibly relatable. Many other people apparently do, too.

GET F***ING SET isn’t my only favorite profanity-laced Matt Ryan moment. Never forget GET THE F*** OFF OUR FIELD or YOU CAN’T F***ING STOP IT.

Ryan’s a fierce competitor, and it was obvious on the field.

Maybe it didn’t fit with the squeaky-clean perception many people had of Matt Ryan, and maybe some people who don’t love coarse language weren’t big fans of the occasional f-bombs that got picked up by microphones. But these really were some of my favorite Matt Ryan moments.
