Now I've got no beef with Matt Ryan, but I have to say, in these two losses, he's become more of a Matty I-N-T than Matty I-C-E... HE has won us a lot of games in the 4th. If he stops that, this team is going down the tubes.
Matt didn't have the time to drive the team down the field for a TD today. If he takes a sack on that last play, we have 3rd and forever with 25 seconds left, needing a touchdown.
If Bryant hadn't missed the field goal, this game is different. If Smith didn't suck at clock management, this game is different. As it was, Matt needed a touchdown to win, and he simply didn't have enough time to make it happen without a little help, so he threw up a prayer, and the football gods didn't see fit for Julio to come down with it.
In week 1, both Jackson and Gonzo dropped passes that would have made them and Ryan the hero. Tony's bobble led to a pick. Not exactly Ryan's fault there.
