Happy Birthday Matt Ryan! Today, May 17th, the Falcons quarterback turns 27.
Ryan is headed into the fifth season of his still very young, very promising NFL career. It began with a bang in Week 1 of his rookie season, when on the first regular season pass of his professional life, Ryan showed Falcons fans why their team used the 3rd overall pick of the 2008 Draft on him. As “Matty Ice” enjoys his cake today, during an off-season in which he and the Falcons are working to take another step toward a title, here’s a look back at how the Ryan Show started in Atlanta, as originally presented on Inside the NFL.
