Good news on the Falcons front

Matt Ryan is named the game 1 starter.

As I've stated before, I wasn't in agreement with this pick when it happened, but I understood why they made it. They needed a quarterback in this draft, because next year's QB draft class looks pretty weak (outside of a certain young man from Highland Park, TX) and they thought Matt Ryan was far and away the best in his class.

Now that he's here, he needs to be on the field. It would be one thing if we were looking to make a playoff push and we were afraid the rookie QB might cost us a chance at a playoff spot. This year is all about building for the future, and that future is not JoChris Redmington.
