Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman Jr. shared some flattering thoughts about Indy’s newly acquired quarterback Matt Ryan.
With the Indianapolis Colts in OTAs, the team has been able to incorporate all of the new additions. One of the most important new pieces is quarterback Matt Ryan. Indy traded for the veteran this offseason to help the team try and capitalize on the current championship window.
So far, it’s looking like a great move. Everything coming out of Indianapolis about Matt Ryan has been great. Reggie Wayne compared him to Peyton Manning, Frank Reich raved about his accuracy, and many more have said great things.
With Ryan officially in practice, he’s now building chemistry with his receivers and they are also showering him with compliments. Indy’s top receiver Michael Pittman Jr. recently praised Ryan’s throwing ability by highlighting his ball placement.
Michael Pittman Jr. impressed by Matt Ryan’s accuracy
Pittman was quoted saying, “Matt can pretty much put it wherever he wants.” The quote got a lot of social media reaction because of the NSFW innuendo that the internet joked about but it’s really a promising statement for Pittman and Indy’s future.
For Pittman, he’s hoping to finally have some consistency at the quarterback position. The emerging receiver is entering his third year and has established himself as a quality receiver despite having a different quarterback every year.
It seems that he’s building chemistry with Matt Ryan that will help Pittman continue his development and improve Indy’s overall passing game, something the Colts desperately need.
If Ryan is consistently as accurate as everyone says he is, and can really put the ball wherever he wants, he should be able to get a lot out of Indy’s young pass-catchers. His timing and accuracy should also give Indianapolis a lot of freedom in designing plays and passing concepts.
Adding an accurate quarterback and developing pass catchers to a unit with the league’s best running back could make for a scary offense.
