Matt Ryan looks to build on longest active 4,000-yard streak in 2019 (update: he did)

Matt Ryan looks to build on longest active 4,000-yard streak in 2019 (update: he did)

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Matt Ryan is a prolific passer. Matt Ryan is a prolific passer. He racks up yards in bunches, so much so that he has more yards than any player in the NFL history through his first 11 years in the league. Ryan’s numbers go under the radar because he’s not respected by large chunks of the media (or his peers) as much as he should be. But here’s the thing about numbers — they aren’t subjective in nature, they don’t care about player popularity. Here’s a strong number showcasing value — the Boston College man once went 64 straight games with at...

Matt Ryan owns the eight most prolific passing seasons in Falcons history

Matt Ryan owns the eight most prolific passing seasons in Falcons history

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ There has never been a better Falcons quarterback than Matt Ryan. The Atlanta Falcons hit a home run when they selected Matt Ryan with the third overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft — that was prevalent after his rookie season in which he led the team to a resurgent 11-5 record and won the Rookie of the Year award. Just how much of a home run that selection was wouldn’t be known until years down the line, however. When you draft a quarterback with a top three selection, you want him to carry your franchise for the next decade. Ryan has fulfilled his end of...

3 underrated free agents the Falcons should target

3 underrated free agents the Falcons should target

The Atlanta Falcons got off to a slow start to the 2019 season and it really put them in a tough spot for the rest of their season.

Mina Kimes joined SB Nation on Radio Row to talk NFL, good Matt Ryan opinions

Mina Kimes joined SB Nation on Radio Row to talk NFL, good Matt Ryan opinions

Photo by Michael Reaves/ You can listen to the episode right here if you missed it. Matt Ryan is a great NFL quarterback, but you wouldn’t know it from fans on the internet. Ryan’s been called trash, overrated, and everything in between. But you’ll never find ESPN’s Mina Kimes spouting any such garbage about Matt Ryan, because she has a brain. “You know I love Matt Ryan. Who in the national media has defended Matt Ryan more than me?” Kimes asked RJ Ochoa of Blogging the Boys and me on Radio Row last week. The answer is nobody. Kimes declared herself part of the “Matt...

Will free agency be the play for the Falcons when it comes to fixing the pass rush?

Will free agency be the play for the Falcons when it comes to fixing the pass rush?

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ On one hand, they don’t have a ton of money. On the other hand, the draft hasn’t delivered. The offensive line is probably the position group where Thomas Dimitroff and company have absorbed the most criticism, and that’s not without merit. For every great player the team has acquired on the line, they’ve picked up four who didn’t move the needle or were outright bad, and watching Matt Ryan get battered behind that line will turn just about anybody against them. Yet I still think the pass rush has been the more glaring failure. From 2008-2019, the...

What was the greatest single season by a Falcons quarterback?

Photo by Jeff Gross/ Matt Ryan, Michael Vick, Chris Chandler, Jeff George, and Steve Bartkowski are the options. I look at the NFL offseason as having two separate dead periods — the first one comes between the end of your team’s season (so the end of the regular season for the Falcons for the past two years) and the start of the free agency period. The second one is between the draft and the start of Training Camp. In these periods of no football, we pass the time by looking back on our team’s history (preferably the good moments). Today, we’ll look back on the greatest...
