Great job for the boys from ATL Vick getting arrested was the best thing to ever happen to the falcons

It shows that Arthur Blanks is not just another rich guy owner but a doer and a believer. Terrific turn around for a team that was in the toilet.

I think Arthur Blanks is a great guy and owner but when you hire a new coach and start a new QB its also is a little lucky if they click. It's not a knock on him but you just don't know what you have until the season gets started.

I am more inclined to say lady luck helped Blank......he hired the thug Vick and was his number one enabler for way too long.

Matt Ryan will become one of the top QB's in the NFL in short order. As much as I hate boston college, I have to admit it-the kid is just amazing at his age...

Great pick on Matt Ryan , the best thing that happenned to them was to have Vick arrested ,that no good wanna be QB grossly overpayed bum ,and not to forget that joke of a coach they had last year. Good job by MR. Blank

Very true and time will tell just how good this team and coach are. I am not a Falcons fan, but Ryan does look to be the pocket passer that a QB has to be to win the big game.

They have played well above what I expected and its a Tie between them and Miami as to who is the bigger suprise this year.
