Those four have a total of 225 career sacks."

Note to Tarvaris Jackson: Run!

Falcons Will Start Ryan Over Everyone

Fresh off a 15-for-21 day against Tennessee, Matt Ryan has been named the starting quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. In that game, Ryan showed efficiency and ball control (no interceptions, no fumbles, only one sack) but little actual production (6.8 yards per completion, for a piddling 4.9 yards per attempt).
