Colts Owner Jim Irsay has high praise for Matt Ryan
In a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee Show, Indianapolis Colts owner, Jim Irsay, had a lot of great things to say about quarterback Matt Ryan.
With the moves the Indianapolis Colts made this offseason, it is clear that the Colts are pushing to be a contender in the AFC this year.
However, no move this offseason has made a bigger impact than the trade for Matt Ryan. The addition of Ryan has brought a lot of excitement to Indianapolis.
Team owner, Jim Irsay, has made his opinions of Indy’s new QB very public, and recently, he appeared on the “Pat McAfee Show” to shower more praise on Matt Ryan.
Jim Irsay loves having Matt Ryan on the Colts
In the video, Irsay talks about some of the things Matt Ryan brings to the table. The key component Irsay mentioned is the “consistency” and “leadership” Matt brings to the team.
Consistency has been something that has been missing from the Indy’s QB room for the better part of seven years. Since 2015, nine different quarterbacks have started a game for Indianapolis.
Since Matt Ryan came into the league in 2008, he has started all but three games. That level of consistency and availability will greatly improve a stacked Colts roster.
Jim Irsay also talked about what the Colts want to do here. He talked about some of his big dreams including winning three straight Super Bowls. Those are obviously some huge expectations, but as a team owner, you should be dreaming big.
Irsay also talked about how you can’t just sit back and expect to win after getting a franchise quarterback. If you look at Indy’s offseason moves, it is clear that Irsay had no intentions of sitting back. Indianapolis made moves in free agency and added even more weapons in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Another key from Irsay’s appearance on the “Pat McAfee show” was how he talked about Carson Wentz. Irsay mentioned that Carson “did his best” to bring consistency and winning to Indianapolis. The Colts’ struggles with Carson were not due to his lack of effort, he just did not fit with the team as well as Matt Ryan does.
Jim Irsay’s comments about Matt Ryan and the outlook of this year’s Colts team should give fans excitement for this upcoming year, as well as the years to come.
