(Larry Brown Sports)   Matt Ryan has a chance to make the wrong kind of history with an NFL first. Well, another kind of NFL first besides blowing a 25-point Super Bowl lead   (larrybrownsports.com) divider line

Conversely, there are four quarterbacks who have beaten all 32 teams: Brittfar, Breesus, Sixhead, and TAWMMY.

If Matty's still a Colt in 2023, he would have a chance to complete the set with a game against the Falcons.

It's not impossible that he could lose to the Falcons in the Super Bowl this season.

//very, very, very improbable, but not impossible.

There's a decent chance of Ryan losing to the Jaguars and the Raiders. The Jags have been a flaming clown car for the past few seasons, but they do pull out surprising wins. And the Raiders usually start off hot and implode in November or December.

Meh, I'm not going to throw shade on a guy who was able to manage this much longevity in a very brutal league.

I'm not hanging that on Matt Ryan.  Kyle Shanahan could have just ran the ball instead.  Kyle Shanahan could have had the team to eat up the play clock.

What a who cares stat.

If anything, it's a case of longevity.

At first, I was a bit surprised no one has lost at all 32 teams, but then realized you have to stick around a while to actually get a chance to play them all.  All 32 obviously requires a team switch, but that happens a lot more often with bad-mediocre QBs.

Still kind of surprised some long-time, mediocre journeyman like Testaverde or Fitzmagic hasn't pulled it off.

True.  The seven names currently tied at 30 aren't terrible: Bledsoe, Brees, Favre, Hasselbeck, Kitna, Palmer, and Smith.  And there are two players who lost to all but one team in the 28-team era: Joe Ferguson and Archie Manning.

It's not a list you want to be on, but it's not the worst list to be on.

Yep. The way the NFL round-robins the schedules typically means that if you've lost to all of the other teams in the league, you've probably had at least a moderately decent career to be around for over 10 years.

Worst NFL foul-up? Lett him have the benefit of the doubt.

Ok, what Pats fan submitted this?

So... blowing a lead is the quarterback's fault?

I get why people blame the play calling, but... the defense could have also attempted to make a stop in the last 18 minutes of the game. They couldn't have been too tired, they had barely played for almost the first 3 quarters of the game. Either way, a QB doesn't blow a 28-3 lead, the coaching and defense does.
