Recently, after the Atlanta Falcons' losing streak reached one game, many fair weather bird fans have been critical of the team and, in particular, Matt Ryan. Fanatics have claimed everything from an inability to read defenses to "happy feet" to, my personal favorite, a lack of toughness.
Anyone that questions Matt Ryan's toughness should surrender their NFL fan card immediately.
The guy has played through a broken foot, illness, and most recently, a vacant offensive line.
But, he always gets back up.
The play above is a testament to his toughness. After this vicious spear, Ryan missed only one play - while the equipment manager put his helmet back together. He went on to lead a comeback W against Clemson in Death Valley.
Say what you will about Matt Ryan, but please don't question his toughness.
You will only come away looking foolish (and without your NFL Fan card).
I can neither confirm nor deny whether this was one of the Falcons' fans questioning Matty Ice's toughness:
