Matt Ryan makes Pro Bowl and other links

The NFL announced its Pro Bowl rosters and Matt Ryan was the lone BC guy to get the invite to Hawaii. While I tweet on the topic, I rarely mention the media narrative building around Ryan. Even here in Atlanta -- where you figure the fanbase would all be defenders -- there are still plenty of Matt Ryan critics. The Pro Bowl is a nice honor, but no one aside from some true believers (like most BC fans) will put Matt in the "great" category until he wins something in the postseason. UPDATE: Chris Snee was also named to the Pro Bowl.

Nick Clancy signed with an agent and is projected to be a late round pick. 

In case you missed it, ESPN's ACC crew predict we won't be bowling in 2013. I am not ready to make a prediction one way or the other yet, but our schedule is now pretty favorable. 

A rising Massachusetts baseball star committed to BC. He won't graduate from high school until 2015. 

Olivier Hanlan was named Co-ACC Rookie of the Week

I'm suree Matt works as hard as any QB in the league.

Atlanta is lucky to have him.

Go Matt; Go Atlanta; Go BC.

I hate that Kuechly wasn't named.

Chris Snee made the Pro Bowl too

A shame Kuechly was snubbed. But hey, if Falcon fans don't want Matty, I think the Dolphins would like a do-over on that draft day anyways.

There's a small minority in Atlanta who long for the days of Vick or who at least compare Ryan to the Golden Age of QBs--Rodgers, Manning, Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger, Eli, etc. Those numbers have honestly dwindled dramatically with each successful season. Atlanta loves Matt. He actually works at his craft, unlike his predecessor.

One playoff win, get the monkey off the back, and off we go.
