Read Matt Ryan's Sports Illustrated Column

23

There's some interesting nuggets in here, and heck, it's Matt Ryan writing an article for Sports Illustrated. You don't get to read that every day.

Nice guy, good college player with a lot of heart. Not an NFL calibre QB though

The Beast busted

Robert James, known by his college teammates as "the Beast" is suspended for 4 games for violating the NFL's substance policy.

SB Nation's Boston College blog: "So nearly three years and over 1,000 posts later, you mostly have Matt Ryan to thank for this site."

As part of a series sponsored by NCAA Football 11 (COOL SPONSOR), all our college blogs are running through some assigned topics together. Today's huddle is on the moments when fans were born. The hour we first believed. BC Interruption's contribution is about moving to campus and becoming an Eagles fan, all centered around Ice. Go read it. I remember that 435-yarder against Georgia Tech blitz coordinator Jon Tenuta's everything-and-the-kitchen-sink-with-the-baby-in-it-out-the-window-ON-FIRE blitz scheme. Tenuta once had Brady Quinn just about calling for mama on national TV, but Matt Ryan ate the blitz up like it was All Pro Science Spinach Roots Dipped In Farm-Raised SoyBlast Rock Protein Extract For Conquest-Likely Vegans. It was horrifying.

Over the summer King's already had Nnamdi Asomugha, Maurice Jones-Drew and Eric Winston filling in for his SI-column, now it's Matty's turn. Keep an eye on sportsillustrated.cnn.com next Monday.

A little bit of inspired lunacy from the AJC's own D. Orlando Ledbetter. It's....a little uncanny.

Haven't seen this posted here. Doesn't sound like the Falcons are high on the idea. I sort of agree. Really you'd have to be high to spend $550 million dollars to renovate that place

Possible Complications for Roddy White

75

Background: Recently, Roddy White was in Virginia helping out at Michael Vick's youth football camp. After the camp, White attended a birthday party for Michael Vick at a club near Vick's hometown. During the party, there was a shooting which injured one of Vick's co defendants from his dogfighting trial. According to Vick's attorney, Vick had left the party well before the shooting occured. White apparently echoed this claim, saying he and Vick had left the party prior to the shooting. Apparently, there is video evidence which suggests that Vick did not leave until about three minutes prior to the shooting. This puts Vick's lawyer's statements in question, and unfortunately, White's statements as well. Likely, White will be interviewed by the NFL in regards to the shooting incident. It doesn't seem likely at this time that White will suffer any legal or league consequences. However, should this turn out poorly, it will not help his or the teams image. I hope that White is truthful in any interviews and re-evaluates his commitment to his friend, Michael Vick. While there may be no wrongdoing on either of their parts, White must be aware of any potentially damaging perceptions created by his behaviors and choices. As long as he is a professional athlete, he will be held to a higher standard. What are your thoughts on this situation?
