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.

It seemed popular opinion by casual fans was Matt had a boring personality. He was a damn gamer through and through. pic.twitter.com/DgUiG8tUf1— Chris Cook (@ChrisCookOnline) March 21, 2022
Ryan’s a fierce competitor, and it was obvious on the field.
I still wanna know what he said that the ref thought was taunting— Niecie (@MsNiecie) March 21, 2022
The Game Winning TD screen to Julio vs Philly and Matt ran the length of the field talking shit to Jim Schwartz and Philly’s sideline— Magic Notes (@magicnotes) March 21, 2022
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.
