Matt Ryan is top ten in the NFL in Passer Rating (9th: 92.0), Yards (10th: 2940), and Fewest Int's (6th: 7). Every week, Ryan makes good decisions, doesn't turn the ball over, and occasionally makes the spectacular play. A good example of that was at home versus Chicago in week six. Ryan delivered a perfect pass over Roddy White's shoulder down the sideline to set up the game winning field goal. There aren't many QB's who deliver that ball on the money in the closing seconds like that, it was a thing of beauty.
In addition to statistics, Ryan seems completely calm and composed at all times on the field. He doesn't have happy feet (eh em .. Matt Lienart) and you never see him yelling at his teammates unjustly (Carson Palmer -- well, maybe that one is justified). Refreshingly, Matt Ryan seems to enjoy the game. His joy and emotion all seem genuine and it only makes me like him more. Sometimes, when you watch football it seems like guys are relieved that it's over (Eli Manning), but that's not the case with Ryan who seems to be having fun.
On top of his game and personality, Ryan rocks the coolest nickname in football right now with "Matty Ice". You better believe that I'm going to be getting one of these sweet t-shirts.
