In order to prepare for the upcoming season, Matt Ryan and his teammates are practicing without pads or helmets. This will be beneficial, since the NFL plans to ban physical contact of any kind for 2011 games.
Am I wrong in assuming that players can’t access their equipment during the lockout and can’t enter team facilities?
The scoreboard in the background says Buford, so they practiced on a local high schools field 20 mins from their team facility.
At Boston College, they build character by playing without an o-line or helmets. Un-concussed brains are for little nancy boys.
Didn’t Mangini get fired for something like this?
@jmac the man
Mangini got fired for being incompetent and collapsing late in the season after starting 8-3. Anything else is just incidental fluff.
Swagger jacking Mark Sanchez, I see,
@ The Harvin Headache
That would be implying Mark Sanchez has any swagger to begin with…which is nonexistent unless he’s around high school girls.
I have a friend that did a promotional photo shoot at a bar yesterday with a couple of NFL players. They had to leave in order for the mascot to come in and have its photo taken. The two groups couldn’t have any contact. This is all retarded.
That head is a tad bit fetus-y.
@ Photoshop Pro
Swagger around high school girls is still swagger.
Ryan is clearly double tasking here. Keeping his throwing skills sharp for the 2012 season, and practicing his waitering skills for his strike job.
That loft is downright Marmalard-esque.
Matt Ryan’s nickname shouldn’t be Matty Ice, it should be The Waiter. Nice form, douchenozzle
Are you sure this isn’t just Philip Rivers wearing a Matt Ryan mask as a disguise?
Is H.S. Swagger = Statutory Swagger, or “Creepy 23-yr-old at H.S. party” Swagger?

It’s still on. Maurice Jones-Drew actually liveblogs it every Sunday on Twitter.
Can someone explain this “Matt Ryan Explained” meme? I just clicked the tag and there’s like ten other of these. Is it anti-humor? Non sequitur riffing? Are we mocking Peter King somehow? Am I thinking about this too hard?!

Fun fact: The workout, organized by Ryan, gives the players an opportunity to practice together during the lockout.
