Matt Ryan Fedex Air Winner


Recommended Posts

23-28 is a great sign from Ice. I hope he regains his early season form after a little mid season slump. And the fact he won the award over Breesus is a good sign that even the casual fan who would have voted for the more popular Breesus is starting to take notice of the way Ryan is playing.

As I like to say...."The Ice-Man Cometh"
