Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan addressed the media following Monday's practice. Now two years removed from the Super Bowl, and a good run at it last year, one of the questions he was asked was about the team's "Super Bowl window."

"From a player's perspective, the window is always one year; it's this team that we have right now. That's something you learn the longer you play. The sense of urgency; how quickly [season's] go by."

Matt Ryan, who turned 33-years-old this year, is entering his 11th season with the Atlanta Falcons, and knows that time is of the essence if he wants to win a Championship.

"I don't have as many years in front of me as I did at 23. I feel like I still have a lot, and I feel really good. There's definitely a sense of urgency that comes one, with age and two, with experience. Dan [Quinn] is as good as anybody I've been around of stressing to those young guys that the window is now."

John said that Super Bowl window is open as long as Matt Ryan is under center, and that "elite status" quarterback. Do you agree that the Falcons window is always year-by-year?
