NEW YORK -- Comments on the Atlanta Falcons by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

ATLANTA FALCONS (2)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 2) -- Matty Ice reminds us why he has the nickame.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 5) -- Matt Ryan has been the NFL's best quarterback through Week 4. He's the main reason they are unbeaten.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 2) -- Comment currently unavailable

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 2) -- Something special happening with the Falcons and the players believe it as well.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 2) -- Matt Ryan off to the best start of his career, adds another comeback win to his resume by bailing out Falcons in a nail-biter against Carolina.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 2) -- An NFC South quarterback leads the NFL in passing. It's not Drew Brees -- it's Matt Ryan.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 2) -- Four games into the season, and they're three ahead in the division. At this rate, the Falcons may clinch their division by Halloween.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 2) -- You can sack Matt Ryan and you can hound the man, but you can't rattle him.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 2) -- Matt Ryan is closing in on elite status and the rest of his team is following his lead.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 2) -- The Falcons got a good scare from the Panthers. 4-0 and still playing impressive football.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 2) -- Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (11 touchdowns, two interceptions, 69.4 completion percentage) would receive my AP Most Valuable Player vote if the season ended today.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 2) -- Successful teams always catch breaks. The Falcons caught one Sunday, and then they showed they could capitalize.
