Reasons Why Matt Ryan is worth 100 million


Matt Ryan has the best five year start by any QB in NFL History. The Falcons Owner Arthur Blank saw fit to give him a 103.75 million dollar contract extension (59 million guaranteed).

There are many that feel that Matt Ryan is not worthy for such a large contract. Matt Ryan has not had much success in the playoffs 1-4 postseason record. An argument can be made that a quarterbacks start is not indicative of how he’ll finish his career. Just take a look at Hall of Famer John Elway and Soon to be Hall of Fame Drew Brees… Both guys careers started off rocky and each one rebounded wonderfully.

Lets take a look at the 1st 5 years of every Quarterback… Who would be the best? Where does Falcons Quarterback Matt Ryan rank? Naysayers get ready to put your hater hats on because you will not like this.

Since 2008 Matt Ryan led the Atlanta Falcons to five consecutive winning seasons (streak ending in 2013 season 4-12 record). Including two number 1 NFC seeds 2010, 2012. Consecutive winning seasons has never been done in the 49 year history of the Atlanta Falcons.

  1. I think that some people are looking at the number but the fact of the matter is that we haven’t won a Superbowl yet. I think that they should let him play his final year of his contract it Superbowl or nothing.
