NFL teams still don’t know whether they’ll be playing in front of fans when they begin their seasons.
But Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan knows he’s not the guy to ask about playing in quiet environments.
Via Atlanta writer Jason Butt (formerly of TheAthletic.com), Ryan was asked about the possibility of playing in empty buildings, and pumping in crowd noise.
Of course, the Falcons were found guilty of exactly that in 2013 and 2014, and were hit with a range of penalties.
It was a solid moment of #selfawareness for Ryan, who has been on a bit of a hot streak lately, deserving cheers of the organic variety for his donations to support Atlanta’s black community.
