Logan Ryan is a G

Huge Titans fan and saw Logan Ryan be one of the key pillars in turning the franchise around. Hope he gets WPMOTY this year with all the off-field work he's doing in the tri-state. Also some TV network needs get him a futures deal cause he's gonna crush it (if he wants to) post-retirement.

Logan Ryan

He’s better at podcasting than consistently covering two yard passes. He could only come up with a plan in a post-game press conference 🤷🏻‍♂️
Got an “L” in the game and in the sportsmanship category.
