Falconsfan567 Posted May 27, 2011 Share Posted May 27, 2011 I know it's hard to compare Matt Ryan to a guy who has 3 Super Bowl rings when Ryan's teams have yet to win a single playoff game. But I can't help but see how the Falcons of today are headed in the same direction of the Cowboys of the 90s. Troy Akiman never put up monster numbers during the regular season mainly because he didn't have too. With Emmitt Smith in the backfield the Cowboys could play a ball control style of offense and then when you least expect it allow Aikman to go deep to Michael Irvin or Alvin Harper. Aikman could win games when the Cowboys needed him too and played his best in the biggest games. The Cowboys also had a great defense. The Falcons don't have the great defense yet but they have everything else in place. Ryan has yet to carry his outstanding regular season performance into the playoffs but it's only been 2 games and it usually takes a while before guys understand that the playoffs are a whole different level. A lot of players and coaches have compared Ryan to Manning and Brady but I see more Aikman than I do anyone else. And I sure would be pretty happy with the Falcons winning 3 Super Bowls!
