AP Pro32 comments about Falcons
NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Atlanta Falcons by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
ATLANTA FALCONS (2)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 2) - Matty Ice reminds us why he has the nickame.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 5) - Matt Ryan has been the NFL's best quarterback through Week 4. He's the main reason they are unbeaten.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 2) - Comment currently unavailable
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 2) - Something special happening with the Falcons and the players believe it as well.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 2) - Matt Ryan off to the best start of his career, adds another comeback win to his resume by bailing out Falcons in a nail-biter against Carolina.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 2) - An NFC South quarterback leads the NFL in passing. It's not Drew Brees - it's Matt Ryan.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 2) - Four games into the season, and they're three ahead in the division. At this rate, the Falcons may clinch their division by Halloween.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 2) - You can sack Matt Ryan and you can hound the man, but you can't rattle him.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 2) - Matt Ryan is closing in on elite status and the rest of his team is following his lead.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 2) - The Falcons got a good scare from the Panthers. 4-0 and still playing impressive football.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 2) - Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (11 touchdowns, two interceptions, 69.4 completion percentage) would receive my AP Most Valuable Player vote if the season ended today.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 2) - Successful teams always catch breaks. The Falcons caught one Sunday, and then they showed they could capitalize.
