    For the record, I don't care how they get the win just as long as they do. I am just saying what Flacco has to do to move past Ryan.
    I agree. He has the Eli Manning problem. Won't be consider anything till he wins the SB.

    Well Matty Ice just got bailed out again, by Tebow.

    The two words "Atlanta Falcons" might be mentioned about 3 times until next year.

    Another narrow escape.

    Ravens fans are just sick of the "Matty Ice" hype that is undeserved. Surely anyone can understand why. Nobody "hates" Matty Ryan personally, they just hate the way the media fawns over him(well they probably won't much now).

    He understands it. He just feels like taking the opposite position.

    Re: "I'm melting I'm melting" Matty ice scoreless in 3rd.

    Did the Falcons just get shut out by the Giants?
    Wow.
    I know their pass rush is good and he wanted ot do some chipping, but how int he workd did Smith forget to use Tony Gonzales?
    That's like only giving the ball to Ray Rice 9 times...

    regardless of stats and offensive weapons I have no doubt Flacco is tougher than Ryan. Physically, if not mentally too.

    Flacco plays on a hard nose team in a hard nose division - Ryan plays on a finesse dome team in a finesse division.

    Yes it is. KVV made a similar point in his "5 Things" column after the Browns victory: At some point in the playoffs, the team is going to need Flacco to light up the scoreboard and win them a game. It may be this weekend, it may be in Foxboro when the Patriots go up 28-7 early in the second half, or it may be in the Super Bowl against Brees/Rodgers.

    This is his chance to change the national perspective of him as a big-game/winning QB.

    Atlanta fans seem to be either A.) laying the blame at the feet of their OC, or B.) Wondering why Matt Ryan continues to get a pass from fans and media.
