Who is the most important Atlanta Falcons player of the last decade? The guys on Dukes & Bell talked about who the most important player has been over the last decade after Julio Jones was named the best player for the team over the last decade in a recent article.

Carl asked if Matt Ryan is more important than Jones.

“The honorable mention on this poll was Matt Ryan, from 2008 when he was drafted to the present,” Dukes said. “He’s been an MVP already. We talked about all the 4,000-yard passing seasons. (He) led us to a Super Bowl and I think this is the chicken before the egg thing. Is Matt Ryan more important to this team even though Julio is considered to be the best player over the last decade?”

Mike said neither would be successful without the other.

“Well the franchise quarterback is the delivery system, he’s got to be doing his thing,” Bell said. “Julio is the star but Matt is, I don’t want to say heart and soul because you could say the same for Julio, but you can’t do one without the other.”
