Tom Brady has a chance to officially claim GOAT status if he wins a 5th Super Bowl title.
Bill Belichick is already regarded as one of the greatest football minds the NFL has ever seen.
The New England Patriots I believe are already the greatest dynasty in football history.
Their story is already written.
Super Bowl 51 represents to me a story of one man.
This is a guy that many has regarded as a good quarterback but not in the elite conversation alongside guys like Brady and Aaron Rodgers
In 2016 he changed the conversation in a big way by throwing for nearly five thousand yards with 38 touchdowns to only 7 interceptions
Even more impressive Ryan threw at last a touchdown to thirteen different players
An NFL record.
Matt Ryan is also the odds on favorite to win the NFL's Most Valuable Player award this Saturday night at the NFL awards ceremony.
Yet the only hardware that matters to him and hell -- every critic for that matter will be on the winning side of Super Bowl 51 over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Matt Ryan has the most to gain this Sunday night when Super Bowl 51 kicks off.
A win over the greatest football dynasty will change the way we perceive Matt Ryan moving forward.
