Quarterback Matt Ryan is not used to facing the same team in a season as the Falcons are getting ready for division foe Carolina. The two teams meet in Week 4.

“I had the opportunity to do it once in college,” Ryan said. “We played Virginia Tech my senior year during the regular season and in the ACC championship game. It was my first experience doing that. It’s a different experience. They are going to know you and you’re going to know them.”

Seriously... Matt Ryan is being criticized over things he has said?

Mike Vick- "I've got two weapons, my arm, my legs, and my brain."

Randy Moss- "Yeah mang, all I do is catch balls, all I do is catch balls."

correction Vick said BRAINS, (brains- plural/like more than one) if he has more than one brain then he didn't use either off his brains.

This is a case of a dumb question getting a simple reply. How many college kids/rookies HAVE played the same team twice in a year? (Outside of a handful conferences that have championship games) A dumb question like that deserves a simple answer.

Football interviews are one big cliche. But whatever. I'd rather listen to Matt Ryan's platitudes than Brett Favre's "I'm having fun. It's like playing backyard ball. Fun Fun Fun. Wranglers jeans. Fun." pressers.

lol so true..brett always says that in his interview..matter of fact i dont think i can remember one where he didnt say he was having fun.
