Inside Matt Ryan’s numbers against San Fran and Chicago preview

If you like statistics head over to the NFL South Blog at ESPN and take a look at the Ryan’s numbers broken down by play action vs. regular passes, and formation types. I would love to see more of these types of articles, and I am sure this is what coaches do when breaking down film and game planning.

Going into the Bears game I would expect the Falcons to mix it up a little. Chicago will be expecting the Falcons to pass out of formations with U personnel (2 TEs, 2 RBs). The key to the game will be for Turner to be able to pound the ball between the tackles, which will open up the passing game much like the numbers in the link above. When Atlanta’s offense is untracked, it should be damn near unstoppable.
