   Matt Ryan is a gifted young quarterback about to shine. The Atlanta Falcons look like a well rounded team in the NFC and I fully expect them to take over the top spot in South from the defending Super Bowl Champions. With his passing and the running of Michael Turner this definitely looks like the year for the Falcons. They are proving a team capable of playing under the pressure and winning close games. This team has a strong and up and coming defense sure to carry them throughout this long and difficult season.

  The real key is Matt Ryan who I feel is improving with age and about to be an elite quarterback in the league. There are many great quarterbacks in the game and Matt Ryan has escaped many fans under the radar. A few key playoff victories and maybe a superbowl run as early as this year will make more football fans to take notice that Atlanta has their own franchise quarterback.He has a rocket for an arm and handles the pass rush pressure better than many quarterbacks his age. The man plays like an experienced veteran out there and I can't think of a quarterback that is as hot as Ryan is right now. he has the Falcons off to a 3-1 start and they are looking like the premier team in the NFC right now as the Vikings and Cowboys have floundered thus far.
