Matt Ryan: The Man of Next Year

There is no question the NFL has a number of good quarterbacks and before last year Matt Ryan was one of them. Matty Ice took his game to new levels last year with the help of a great group of wide receivers, leading the Atlanta Falcons just shy of competing in the Super Bowl. He completed 68% of his passes for 4,719 yards and finished with a passer rating of 99.1 which is in the top 5 in each category. With another year under his belt there is room for improvement and Matt Ryan seems poised to do just that in 2013.

They don’t call him the “Matural” for nothing, He plays the game similar to Peyton Manning. With a great football IQ stellar accuracy and a knack for the 4th quarter victory there is a resemblance. They are not the same however and Ryan has youth on his side which will only help him.

With room to grow Matt Ryan should be able to surpass his totals and continue the success that has followed him since he entered the league in 2008.He has made his case to be under the category of elite and I believe Matt Ryan will leave no doubt in any ones mind next year. With the new season quickly approaching Matt Ryan is still looking for a new contract. Lets all hope he gets it too because he is the future of the Atlanta Falcons and potentially the man of next year and many more to come!
