Matt Ryan is the quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons. He entered the league a few years back with a reputation for being cash in the clutch, a reputation that led to his spectacularly annoying nickname ‘Matty Ice’. Now in his fourth season, Matty Ice is 0-2 in the playoffs and is playing some of the worst football he’s ever played to begin 2011 while leading what was supposed to be the best Atlanta team in many years.

Regardless, Falcons fans – at least four them anyway – have their struggling quarterback’s back, support that they manifest with quite possibly the lamest fan headgear in NFL history.

Here are…the Iceheads!

Credit to Reddit for the screencap and for posting about the absurdity of these “hats”. I was also quite amused by this comment on the thread:

So… is there some joke about ‘ice’ at play here, or are they simply admitting to being meth heads?

Losing in the NFL will make fans do pretty crazy things, but let’s hope that the team’s putrid 2-3 start hasn’t compelled any Falcons fans to turn to meth for comfort. Seriously. The city of Philadelphia needs all the meth it can get right now.

There isn’t anything else that can be said about these Iceheads that isn’t perfectly summed up by the expression on the face of the Packers fan who had the unfortunate privilege of sitting in front right in front of these Matty Ryan loving bros.

Only one team’s fans get to wear silly headgear without being mocked or ridiculed damnit: Packers fans. And we protect our own here at MSF.

So to these four Falcons fans I’ll just say rise up…those silly hats off of our head, and leave the cheesy headgear to the fans who have earned it.
