The Indianapolis Colts have high hopes after bringing in former league MVP Matt Ryan.
They don’t want a repeat of the 2021 season wherein they missed the playoffs despite having two opportunities to clinch a spot.
That’s why they are willing to shift from Carson Wentz, who lasted one season in Indianapolis, to Ryan, who played 14 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons.
The early results seem to point in the positive direction as Ryan shows his capabilities during OTAs and their minicamp.
But aside from getting Colts fans excited for his arrival, he is also immersing himself more into the team by participating in friendly activities like this.
Matt Ryan vs. Blue. 😤
— theScore (@theScore) June 13, 2022
theScore shared a video of Ryan competing against the team’s mascot, Blue, in what appears to be an upsized version of beer pong.
Instead, they are competing on the field and filling up buckets with water.
They are also using mini basketballs instead of ping pong balls.
The first to shoot the ball inside three buckets wins and Blue achieved the objective first.
However, Ryan also made it to three in his next attempt.
Call it a draw perhaps?
The Colts Could Be A Big Draw Next Season
There’s a chance that more football fans will pay attention to the Colts in 2022.
Aside from Ryan, they have Jonathan Taylor, who led the league in rushing attempts, yards, and touchdowns last season.
There’s also Michael Pittman Jr., who finished with 1,082 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
Indianapolis’ defense also has the makings of an elite unit with DeForest Buckner, Darius Leonard, and Kenny Moore.
But they didn’t stop there after adding Yannick Ngakoue and former Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore.
The Colts hope that their additions will help them get over the hump.
