The best thing you will read about Matt Ryan all summer


Although I don't let it creep onto the blog much, in my day-to-day and on twitter, I feel like I am always defending Matt Ryan. Even after last year's playoff run, there are those who say he can't and won't win the big one. I still believe and think this great feature on CBS Sports is a sign of how close Matt has been and that he knows what he needs to do to win it all.

The feature is heavy on Xs and Os, but Matt's knowledge of the game isn't what gives me hope. Most QBs should be able to breakdown a play. What stood out to me instead was Matt's defense and trust of his teammates and willingness to carry the blame. He doesn't call out his line or guys who dropped passes. He also explains his mentality within the game. Matt's looking for the big play but understands a lot of offense is taking what is given. If Matt keeps playing the percentages as well as he does, one day he will be on top.

I'm going to save reading this for tomorrow when I'm more awake, but just from the first few lines it looks like a great read.

Thanks Bill!

It's extremely unfair. He won't get the respect he deserves until he wins a Super Bowl, and even then there will be doubters.

Are there Dan Marino doubters?

I'd trade Tony Romo for him any day of the week.

Matty is a class act and we all hope he gets his team to the Ultimate Winner's circle soon.

Thanks for all you did for BC, Matt and best of luck getting that final 10 yards.
