Super Bowl Bound

Falcons and Patriots tangle in the NFL Finale

Matt Ryan has emerged as the most prolific quarterback in the NFL this season and has looked more like Tom Brady of old than Tom Brady does this season.  There is a reason for that, actually.  You see, Ryan studied Tom Brady and other high scoring NFL quarterbacks.

I decided I would spend the early part of the off-season studying the high-scoring offenses in the NFL that had personnel similar to ours here in Atlanta. – Matt Ryan

Super Bowl LI

Super Bowl LI will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.  Last year, Super Bowl 50 was the third most watched event in Television History and this year looks to be no different.  Tickets have been selling at a brisk pace and the weather for Super Bowl LI looks to be amazing as February is notoriously dry in Houston.

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab a friend and grab your tickets and witness history in person.

Former Colts GM praises QB Ryan

Bill Polian has some knowledge of top quarterbacks after his stint as the Indianapolis Colts GM which featured Peyton Manning for a number of years.  Polian has come out with remarks stating that Falcons QB Matt Ryan is just “a Super Bowl away from being elite.”

The top four quarterbacks in the league all have rings; Brady, Manning, Brees and Rodgers while Ryan is 1-4 in playoff games and is beginning his seventh season.

I like his release, I like his arm strength, I like his accuracy, I like his touch,’’ Polian said. “I like his poise. I like his ability to extend plays. And I like his toughness.’’

The Falcons are hoping that offensive lineman free agent pickup Jon Asamoah will help keep Ryan on his feet.  Asamoah signed a 5-year deal worth $4.5 million per season.

Be sure to keep up with your Atlanta Falcons and plan on getting your tickets as soon as they are available!
