Prisco Calls Ryan "Likely MVP"


Recommended Posts

The media also likes underdogs. People like underdog stories. The more we succeed, the more people will run along with the idea that we could run the table to a Super Bowl win. For that matter, more people might actually start rooting for us to go all the way because we never have, and the media will make note of that. Make no mistake though, respect comes after the accomplishment, so I can forgive the media for being reluctant to jump on the Falcons' bandwagon because we've always disappointed in the past. I mean come on, many fans here didn't think and still don't think we're gonna make much noise in the playoffs and are perfectly content with that considering the last three seasons, so why should we criticize the media for tempering their enthusiasm?

Are yearly awards given at the conclusion of he regular season, or after the Super Bowl?  I forget. 

It's announced the day before the SB, but the MVP ballots were sent out on the 16th of Dec and have to be back in by Jan 4th, but no earlier than Jan 2nd.

I thought Ryan was out of it after the KC game, but he bounced back strong. His numbers, let alone what he did without JJ, should make him the favorite. His TD to INT ratio is tits.

HIs TD:INT ratio would be incredible if Julio didn't let 3 balls bounce right off of his hands and into defenders arms.....

 

Ryan is the MVP and it shouldn't be close. Brady played 3/4 of a season, Elliott plays behind an all world line. Dak rides Elliott and doesn't have to do too much.

 

IMO Ryan is MVP and David Johnson is runner up.

So Matty Ice will be named MVP the day before he wins his first Super Bowl! ;)

Matt Ryan has broken or is close to breaking numerous NFL records (YPA, games with 200 yards, players catching a TD, etc) & has a team with the #25 defense on the verge of capturing a #2 seed at 11-5.

He's better than Brady, Dak & Carr in every statistical category other than INT's & the only QB in the playoffs with more TD's is Rodgers.

Unless Matt implodes Sunday the MVP race should be an absolute no-brainer. 

I'm hoping for a 300 yard, 4 TD 0 pick day to just accentuate it.

You would think. I just hope the ones that actually vote don't think like all the talking heads seem to.

Ryan is nowhere near the Y/A record. He's having an outstanding season in that stat but it's not close to the record.

  1. Sid Luckman - 10.9 - CHI - 1943
  2. Otto Graham - 10.6 - CLE - 1953
  3. Norm Van Brocklin - 10.1 - LA - 1954
  4. Ed Brown - 9.9 - CHI - 1956
  5. Kurt Warner - 9.9 - STL - 2000
  6. Chris Chandler - 9.6 - ATL - 1998
  7. Len Dawson - 9.4 - KC - 1968
  8. Greg Cook - 9.4 - CIN - 1969
  9. Bob Waterfield - 9.4 - LA - 1945
  10. Ken Stabler - 9.4 - OAK - 1976
  11. Matt Ryan - 9.3 - ATL - 2016
  12. Otto Graham - 9.3 - CLE - 1955
  13. Johnny Unitas - 9.3 - BAL - 1964

So Matt Ryan isn't even gonna set a new Falcons record in Y/A let alone a new NFL record.

Chris Chandler is literally the only one on that list that legit beats Ryan right now. 2000 Kurt Warner only played 11 games. Those 1940's guys will never be beat because they only attempted like 200 passes....

Just pointing out a fact that Ryan is not about to set a new record in that stat.

Notice there are only 3 guys on it from 1978 and on. Kurt Warner who missed 5 games and then two Falcons. Honestly, Ryans is the most impressive. Even Chander only had to play 14 games. Ryan has did it over the course of a full 16 game slate. He's the only modern day QB on the list. Ryan will have attempted more than 100 more passes on Chandler. Chandler only attempted 390 passes. Ryan is at 498 right now.
