Matt Ryan 3rd player EVER to complete 80% of his passes

rush for  Youth

2 touchdowns Matt Ryan has quietly
added his name to a number of NFL records. Those are usually centered around
passing efficiency, yards per attempt, passing yards, and things like that.
Today’s game against the Carolina Panthers put Ryan is some unusual company.Ryan
showed his wheels and rushed for two touchdowns. That’s one way to improve a
slumping red zone offense!Here’s the specifics.That’s right, Ryan matched both
Cam Newton and Jeff Garcia way back during his time in San Francisco. Ryan may
have some irregular games. Against the season opener against the Philadelphia
Eagles, he never looked comfortable in the pocket. He completed under 50 percent
of his passes for the first time since 2011. It was the 11th worst game of his
career based on his quarterback rating. The most consistent thing is Ryan will
battle back after a bad game, and this was no different. Ryan made a punishing
Carolina Panthers defense look more like the 2014 Falcons defense. You remember
the one that was the worst in the league and still pumped in fake crowd noise.It
was a pretty masterful performance,with Ryan completing 23 of 28 passes for 272
yards for an 82.1 completion percentage, 9.71 yards per attempt, two passing
touchdowns, and four attempts for 18 yards and two awesome rushing touchdowns.
It felt like a return to 2016. We saw the return to pre-snap motion, sweet
play-action bootlegs, and working down the pass catching options: Ryan tossed to
eight different players.Ryan showed some concerned fans that he’s still got it.
Seriously, that stat line is just silly, and the Panthers are no pushovers. JUCO
football doc series Last Chance U is now back with its third season on Netflix.
It’s excellent again.In light of that, it's time to catch up on where the show's
alumni are for the 2018 season. These aren't all the players who went through
East Mississippi Community College during its two seasons or Independence CC
during Season 3, but they are the ones the show's featured most
prominently.(Some spoilers, obviously.)Season 1 at EMCCEMCC’s leadership got a
major shake-up at the end of 2016. Tempestuous head coach Buddy Stephens is
still at EMCC for 2018 ,
but OC Marcus Wood is off the coaching staff, DC Ed Holly left to become the
head coach at Westminster Christian School in Florida, and QB coach Clint
Trickett left for the tight ends job at FAU.Buddy Stephens at EMCCSteve Dietl /

viewers’) favorite grown-up on campus, left to start an athletic counseling
business and join the staff of a Michigan high school.Brittany Wagner at
EMCCNetflixQB John Franklin III, formerly of Florida State, was long hyped as
Auburn's next star JUCO QB. At Auburn, he switched to WR, then moved to Lane
Kiffin’s “Last Strike U” at FAU. He’s now an undrafted DB with the Chicago
Bears.John Franklin III at FAUJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsQB Wyatt Roberts
left to attend Mississippi State as a regular student, where Dan Mullen invited
him to walk on as a scout-teamer. Roberts is now entering the steel industry. In
2016, Wagner joined the two Season 1 QBs at Auburn-MSU:RB D.J. Law signed with
UAB but didn’t join the Blazers. Injuries and academics hampered him, and head
coach Bill Clark said the RB could play in the NAIA (non-NCAA college ball) or
Canada.D.J. Law at EMCCNetflixDL Ronald Ollie, Season 1’s comic relief and most
beloved player among viewers, transferred to FCS Nicholls State. He recorded 41
tackles and this Piesman-worthy TD, then hoped to transfer up to FBS, but will
keep playing at Nicholls for 2018. DL Marcel Andry followed Ollie, then
completed his eligibility at Nicholls.Marcel Andry and Ronald Ollie at

years Calvin

Jaguars. Before EMCC, he was expected to start for Virginia Tech until a murky
dismissal.QB Chad Kelly, mentioned a few times during the show as a former EMCC
great, became the NFL Draft’s Mr. Irrelevant out of Ole Miss and is on the
Denver Broncos’ depth chart.Chad Kelly in DenverRon Chenoy-USA TODAY SportsRB
Isaiah Wright, who took over for Law as the team's top RB in 2016, signed with
Division II West Georgia after a brutal year, but he left that school before the
2017 season. In September 2017, he was charged in connection with a murder in
Tennessee and jailed. In August 2018, prosecutors dropped a homicide charge
against him, as Wright pleaded guilty to an aggravated robbery facilitation
charge. Wright left jail and received a five-year supervised probation sentence.

he'd punched a woman at a bar. At EMCC, the show depicts Division I coaches
being cautious about showing interest in him. He played in only a handful of
games for Kiffin’s FAU in 2017, due to blood clots, but is competing for the
Owls’ 2018 starting job.DL Chauncey Rivers, kicked out by Georgia over weed, can
now suit up for Mississippi State after being ruled ineligible in 2017. He’ll be
part of a loaded rotation at the edge and is hopefully still making rap songs
about how much he loves his mom.LB Dakota Allen lost his spot at Texas Tech

appearing to be a model citizen on the show. He’s arguably Texas Tech’s best

people just because they're on a TV show, but Bonner — a former Louisville
signee and Ole Miss commit — certainly has talent. He saw action on special
teams in 2017.Tim Bonner at EMCCSteve Dietl / Courtesy of Sony PDL Kamonte

Vijay Miller, Johnson’s true freshman backup who was totally outmanned in his
one start but then saved EMCC with a Hollywood-grade clutch throw, is now
throwing for a little team known as the San Diego Padres’ minor league
system.Season 3 at IndependenceThe show’s third year depicts the 2017 season at

leading a turnaround to 9-2 and a bowl win in 2017.Jason Brown at

several players and emerges as a much-needed contrast to the bellowing Brown, is

Florida State transfer QB in three years, was Indy’s primary passer for nine
games before freshman Drake Smith took over. Henry didn’t sign with a new
school.Malik Henry at IndependenceNetflixOT Tramonda Moore, who signed with
Oklahoma State out of high school, remained a four-star at Indy and went to
Oklahoma, which both Moore and the Sooners wanted all along. But the Sooners
dismissed him in November. After a strong 2017 that included 518 total yards in
the season’s two biggest games (and a lot of those big runs behind Moore), RB
Rakeem Boyd is at Arkansas. He’s a former Texas A&M three-star.RB Kingston

Scott, landed at UAB.WR Carlos Thompson, the star receiver who’s out of Division

Colorado, but finishing his 2017 season for the Pirates first. DT Emmit Gooden,
a four-star Arkansas commit during most of LCU’s Season 3, has a chance to start
for Tennessee in 2018. That’s full circle, because the Vols were the West
Tennessee native’s first offer, four years earlier.In June, LB Bobby Bruce was
charged with armed robbery near his hometown of Titusville, Florida. Indy
