As a Falcons lifer I absolutely believe that Matt Ryan will win a Super Bowl with Indianapolis. I think you may be slightly underestimating just how hungry Matt is. The guy should be a first ballot Hall of Famer and the only thing keeping him from that is a Super Bowl ring...or two. After being perennially underappreciated in Atlanta, Ryan has been given an opportunity to prove that he has always belonged in the same conversation as Rogers, Brees, Brady and other top tier QBs. For the first time in his career he has a fully competent coaching staff behind him and all the pieces he needs to put together a great run. I'll have a hard time forgiving the franchise for the way Matt exited Atlanta The courting of DeShaun Watson was yet another ridiculous chapter for an organization with a long history of them. I'm happy he found a great new home and I'll be rooting for him until the day he retires.

Fantastic podcast, listen to every show. Always interesting, always informative and I also learn a bit too. Robert Mays loves football even if the Chicago Bears do make him want to put his head in the oven.
