A Song of Matty Ice and Fire

Tweet For much of his decade in the NFL, Matt Ryan has been the quarterback fraternity’s embodiment of a tree falling in a forest. How many other quarterbacks at the helm of a blistering offense would be Rosa Parked into the rear of the MVP discussion for most of the year despite throwing for nearly 5000 yards and 40 touchdowns [&hellip
