Projected Week 1 starter: Matt Ryan
Backups: Matt Schaub, Garrett Grayson, Kurt
2018 outlook: Matt Ryan threw for 4,095 yards last
season, good for sixth in the NFL — it was his lowest total since 2010.
The Falcons have little reason to worry.
In case of emergency: It's tough to imagine Matt
Schaub coming in to save a tight game for the Falcons against a division
rival like the Saints or Panthers, but if you can close your eyes and
heave a ball up for Julio Jones, you always have a chance.
Long term plans: Matt Ryan is 33 and doesn't look
to be moving any time soon, but it's likely that the Falcons will want
to invest in a backup younger than Schaub (37) soon.
