Matt Ryan hits 30,000 career passing yards in first half of Falcons-Titans

The Falcons' quarterback is one of the fastest ever to the milestone despite a rough game thus far.

It's been a pretty lousy offensive effort for Atlanta thus far, but Matt Ryan still hit a milestone in the second quarter of Falcons-Titans.

Ryan is well on his way to being the best quarterback in franchise history, if you don't believe he's there already, despite some middling games thus far in 2015. He's the franchise leader in nearly every single passing milestone, and is the fifth fastest to 30,000 yards, I believe, as he piled up all those yards since being drafted third overall back in 2008.

Ryan would probably settle for not hitting the milestone if the Falcons had a quality lead, but at the time I write this, Atlanta is down 7-0 and Ryan's having a pretty shaky effort. Let's hope he gets the ship turned around before too long.
