    Seems like he's had a very emotional life so far.

    I know some of you are down on him and think that he isn't a big help to our team.. but he doesn't need to be "LT" in his first year to help us win games. I think with all of the great production from LT in the past, we all expected Ryan to match that level right away, and that is impossible for anyone. He is progressing a lot IMO and I'm sure the coaches would say the same. He's averaging 4.4 ypc, which is great considering he is a rookie and considering our Oline is more of a pass blocking Oline than a run blocking one.

    Yea I Saw Matthews Story... Crazy ish... All i Want From Matthews is him too not fumble he would help the team with his speed bursts while Tolbert bulldozes his way thru the pile.. Once matthews quits fumbling he a be a good asset for a playoff push

    Fumbles aside (everybody is trying to strip the runners on all the teams) isn't Ryan averaging more YPK than LT in the bench years? Lt on bench.jpg

    Rookies have twice the strip attemtps that established backs do. He'll be fine. He just need to keep wanting the football. Look at how much Adrian Petersen has fumbled thus far. You really think that team is boo hoo-ing about him? Defenses are taught to strip the rookie. Plain and simple. It's gonna happen.

    Yeah, because big, strong f*ckers landing on your ankle certain ways makes you a puss.
