Matt Ryan is elite in the playoffs

Play calling be damned, Matt Ryan has killed it in the playoffs.

NFL: Super Bowl LI-New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons have had some pretty uneven playoff games, with perhaps the only consistent thing being Matt Ryan. He’s literally better than everyone since 2006 not named Kurt Warner.

Not on the list? Bums like Tom Brady and Drew Brees. Those losers can get lost.

Alex Smith has never passed farther than six yards, so he always has a top completion percentage. Ryan, of course, has no problem pushing the ball down the field. Get him a dang defense and a playcaller with an ounce of awareness and this man should bring home some championships.
