JOHNNY UNITAS RUMORS

How Matt Ryan became “Matty Ice”

He wasn’t always “Matty Ice” to everybody. Going into the 2004 season at Boston College, he was just Matt. He was a young quarterback fighting for a starting job at a mediocre football school. Now he’s a three time pro-bowler with all major passing records in Falcons history. Now he’s the quarterback that has led comeback after comeback for the Falcons and brought a city...

Well, that didn’t take long. Just one full season after his retirement, the Ravens announced plans to unveil a statue of Ray Lewis outside of M&T Bank Stadium for the 2014 season.  Frederick Kail, the sculptor who was commissioned to complete the Unitas statue in 2002, is apparently already “well into it,” and though the organization hasn’t tangibly seen the progress...
