All of us did that too.

Ryan already has 5 games this season with 3 touchdown passes. He had only 5 such games all of last season. I don't know what the Falcons record is for 3 touchdown pass games but I'm guessing it can't be much more than 5 in a season.
Ok. Was just able to do some research. A QB throwing for 3 touchdown passes in a game for the Falcons has happened just 79 times. It's pretty pitiful when you think about it. You're talking about less than 2 such games a season for the history of the Falcons franchise. Matt Ryan has done it 16 times in his career. Steve Bartkowski did it just 17 times in his career. So that's another Falcons passing record Ryan is about to overtake.
The record for most 3 touchdown pass games in a season is 6 by Bartkowski in 1981. How in the world did the Falcons not win more games in 1981 with the year Bartkowski had? That was the best season of his career.

Mike Smith: Has a QB playing at an MVP level, two elite WRs and a HOF TE, still relies on Turner for 3 of the most important plays of the game. derp

2 goal line attempts in the 4th quarter and the failed 3rd & 1 in the first that made us settle for a FG (obviously not one of the most important plays at the time but in hindsight we couldn't afford to settle for a FG there. )

Matt Ryan's season QB Rating went down from 102.6 to 94.8 with just 1 game. That's insane.
RE: Matt Ryan - FullMetalFalcon23 - 11-18-2012 06:56 PM
It will rise up again. This was a huge aberration
RE: Matt Ryan - AUTiger7222 - 11-18-2012 07:49 PM
Yeah it will rise back up but I don't think it will get back to the 100 level again.

No it's not. He threw 5 interceptions, I don't think it's even close to insane.

Last QB to throw 5 ints and 0 TD and win the game?
Bart Starr in 1967.
How did his season end?
Super Bowl Champion.
