According to Jon Chuckery, the Atlanta Falcons did what they were supposed to do in the draft and free agency, which is protect your quarterback. And the metrics seem to agree with that.

The offensive line, at least on paper, has gone through a major overhaul and now there are some blocking tight ends on this team. Now look what Matt Ryan has coming back.

A healthy Devonta Freeman will fix this running game tremendously from last year, in which they were 27th in the league.

Now look at the coaches that have joined this staff. The new [old] offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and the tight end coach Mike Mularkey are now on board. These are guys that Ryan is familiar with.

All of these factors, not even mentioning the stellar receiving corps, make Chuckery believe that Ryan will have his best season as a pro; which will be hard to do.

Two out of the last three seasons, Ryan has had the best seasons of his career. His MVP season he threw for 4,944 yards and had 38 touchdowns. Last season, Ryan threw for 4,924 yards and had 35 touchdowns.

At this point of his career, Ryan is in his prime. The game is slowing down. If you look at all of the current great QBs, your Rodgers, Brees, your Brady's, they all hit their prime around this age.

Chuckery now thinks that it is Ryan's turn and he will do it this season.
