Asante Samuel Renames Matt Ryan “Matty Black Ice”

Matt Ryan Matty Black Ice

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan’s first playoff victory was apparently enough to earn him a new nickname from his loquacious teammate Asante Samuel, AKA “Swag 100”.  Per the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Samuel has dubbed Matt Ryan “Matty Black Ice” because Samuel says that black ice is the “slick stuff you can’t see coming.”  The Seahawks can certainly attest to that after falling victim to Ryan at the end of today’s game.

We’ll see if “Matty Black Ice” starts trending as much as Ryan’s former alias “Matty Ice” was this afternoon.
