Rookie Matt Ryan Named Falcons Starter

The Atlanta Falcons have named rookie quarterback Matt Ryan as their starting QB for the season opening game against the Detroit Lions. Ryan was signed to a six year $72 million contract after being the third selection in this year's NFL draft out of Boston College. I guess the Falcons want Ryan to start earning that salary immediately. Houston's David Carr was the last rookie to start his team's opener back in 2002.
