PLAYERS: Matt Ryan
TEAMS: Atlanta Falcons
For the second year in a row, top NFL analyst for ESPN and previous NFL quarterback, Ron Jaworski (known to many as “Jaws”), released his QB countdown in which he ranks the 32 probably-starting quarterbacks during three-minute segments on Sportscenter and NFL Live. Coming in at number five in Jaws’ countdown is none other than Atlanta Falcons starting QB Matt Ryan. This ranking puts Ryan ahead of Super Bowl champion quarterbacks like Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees as well as young phenoms Colin Kaepernick, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. The four quarterbacks whom Jaws believes to be better than Matt Ryan are Super Bowl-winning QB Aaron Rodgers, reigning Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco, and finally future Hall of Famers Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
