Matt Ryan has escaped a lot of criticism in his career. Don’t take that the wrong way, because he is a very good quarterback, but he’s also been the starter for an offense that hasn’t had a winning season since 2017.

Not only that but the team he’s started for since 2008 decided he was worth just a third-round pick so the expectation that he might tear the league up with lesser targets than he had during his struggles from 2017 through 2020 seems to be a stretch.

They do at least have one of the best backs in the game in Jonathan Stewart, so maybe they can lean on him and find a way to win enough to get into the playoffs. They’re a good team but need to prove they can contend with this makeup.

A.J. Brown wanted a new deal and the Tennessee Titans balked at the idea. While this was known, it was still a shock to see him traded during the 2022 NFL Draft. They did find a solid replacement in Treylon Burks from Arkansas, but it might be a lot to ask a rookie to step in and replace Brown from day one.

They did make an underrated move in adding Robert Woods, who will help, but overall, their offense doesn’t seem nearly as complete. Having said that, they have surprised us all before — like when they somehow landed the No. 1 seed a year ago, so maybe they end up doing it again. Or maybe, they finally run out of luck.
