Does Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan deserve to be in the MVP talk? 

John referenced an ESPN article breaking down MVP candidates where they have Matt Ryan behind Patrick Mahomes and Drew Brees.

They list some of his accomplishments between 2016 versus 2018. He has 70.8 completion percentage, 2,685 total yards,19 touchdowns, 3 interceptions and the only major difference between his MVP season and this year is the team's overall record.

For ESPN they have Drew Brees as the leading the vote, which both Rick and John disagree with. Rick thinks Todd Gurley is the hands down MVP with Mahomes in a tie.   

They debate Goff, Gurley, Mahomes, Brees and Ryan as all contenders in the MVP race at the halfway point of the season.
