PFW's Offensive Player of the Week: Matt Ryan

"Week Six PFW Players of the Week

Oct. 13, 2008


QB Matt Ryan

Atlanta Falcons

Move over, Virginia Tech. Matt Ryan might have a new signature comeback on his résumé. The Bears appeared to have stolen a win in Atlanta when they took a 20-19 lead with 11 seconds remaining, but Ryan and the offense got the ball back on their own 44-yard line. He calmly hit Roddy White with a perfect strike on the sideline, letting White get out of bounds and leaving one second left on the clock. PK Jason Elam hit the game-winning, 48-yard field goal on the next play to put the surprising Falcons in a three-way tie atop the NFC South at 4-2. Ryan wasn’t sacked all day against the Bears and completed 22-of-30 passes for 301 yards and a fourth-quarter TD to White that gave the Falcons a 19-10 lead."


Wow. Simply amazing, for a rookie QB to get player of the week in the first 6 weeks, against one of the better defenses in the league. I gotta say that game made me a solid believer.
