Your 2011 Atlanta Falcons MVP: Matt Ryan

The voters have spoken!

Though he had to fight off Sean Weatherspoon the whole way, Matt Ryan is the team's MVP, at least according to voting Falcoholics.After having one of his finest seasons to date despite a struggling offensive line, Ryan's getting at least some due for it.

Where this season became a little remarkable—and what gives me even more hope for the season ahead—is how good Ryan was from Week 9 on. In that nine game stretch, he threw 20 touchdowns against just three interceptions, leading the team to a 6-3 record over that span. Those aren't astoundingly big numbers, but they are astoundingly efficient. That's worth celebrating.

Congratulations to Ryan.
