I really like Matt's chances in this year's MVP race. He's been playing prob the best out of any QB in the league right now, and i can only see it getting better. Yes, it has something big to do with his Oline's improved play, but this dude just GETS IT. He makes the right reads, delivers accurate passes, has excellent timing, is amazing at calling his own audibles along with the no huddle. I cant think of one weakness he has other than his mobility but thats not even really an issue. I can definately see our boy Matty getting that MVP award this year if he keeps it up.

Crazy to think they are going ga-ga over Flacco calling him elite. If Flacco is elite then Matt Ryan is the best QB that ever lived LOL @ ESPN

It's 3 games, way too soon. I will say this though - he's improved over the same number of starts:

that TD and completion % looks to have skyrocketed from last year

A highly drafted 27 year old cerebral QB who is 0-3 in the playoffs wins the MVP for the first time, then goes on to get his first playoff win that season.

He goes on to some success (both individual and team).

Haven't I heard this story before??

For added fun, their first three playoff games compared (2 away, 1 home):

Do you remember what Bill Walsh said about new QB's in the NFL.

"It takes 2 full seasons the truly evaluate the player.

This means that evey team in the NFL has 2 full seasons of game film on the QB,

and if he is any good he will continue to grow and progress.

Any speculation on what Bill Walsh would say about Matt Ryan?

Every 10 years or so, there is a 2-3 year period when a special crop

of QB's come into the league.

So far it has been Ryan, Stafford and Flacco, and ByDawd, We got Ryan!

Flacco is good

Ryan is excellant.

Stafford, well there is just no disputing how good he is.

He was the top rated QB in the Nation coming out of High School.

Tore it up at UGA, and is definately having a go in the NFL.

But at the end of the day he is stuck in Detroit!

When he begins to find his second, alternate and outlet receivers, when he moves out of the pocket and stretches the pocket to hit those guys, that's when he'll start taking defenses apart. There's a total upside to everything he does. He'll demonstrate that this year, especially with the gifts Julio has that are so spectacular

New coordinator? Better protection? Better scheme? He seems to have a different air about him - he looks comfortable and in control on the field - much more so than he has in previous years.

I think part of it is that the new OC encourages him to think more agressively when picking targets...take a little risk if the reward is worth it. He has zipped the ball into some very tight windows. It's not like he's completing over 70% to guys who are running alone.

Being more agressive means taking primary targets more often. That leads to getting the ball out sooner some of the time. That keeps the defense rushing in vain and helps your OL hold up when you do need to go through the progressions.

He is also more agressive running. He doesn't scare anyone, but he has made several short scrambles that have to be really annoying to defense.
