    I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it until he proves me wrong....Matty Ice is the most undeserving nickname in football. Zero playoff wins and he is "Ice"? I just don't get it.

      Not a bad resume for a 4th year qb. Having said that, I wish him nothing but the worst on Sunday.

        It's the most ridiculous name I've heard. Even more ridiculous was hearing Francesa referring to him as that on his show. I mean, is he told by the network to be sure to use the Falcons' QB's ktichy nickname so he sounds cool and stuff? IMO, Matt Ryan isn't even that popular to garner any kind of nickname

        Please, everyone in the media - just stop calling him that

            He is going to be MELTING ICE when our DLine gets through with him
            Football has been very, very good to us.
            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

            # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

            1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
            2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
            3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
            4-New York Giants!!!
            5-NE
            Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                glad to see that pretty much everyone is in agreement on this nickname. Let the guy win something before they decide how good he is. I felt like the media decided that he and Flacco were going to be good right out of the draft and until either guy gives them a reason not to (which Flacco has done) they will continue heaping praise on him.


                As for Francesa using the nickname he was even worse, he was calling him MATT ICE. Like the guys actual last name is "Ice". lol

                    Flacco's one guy I WISH they'd give a nickname too. Everytime I hear his name I think of a cross between 'flaccid' and 'flatulance'

                    Or maybe that's just me channeling my innter 12 year old

                      He's a good QB. Their 2 playoff loses were against better teams (Cards and GB).

                      Eli was 0-2 in the playoffs before '07. Ryan will get his playoff wins, but I just hope that it does not start this year.

                          Whether he is a good QB or not is not the issue though. He was given this nickname from as early back as I can remember, and he hasn't won anything (yet) to deserve it. He also threw a crucial pick 6 last year against GB, wasn't very ice-esque....but I'm sure it made at least a few ATL fans drink a natty ice, lol

                            This.

                            The guy got the nickname in high school. It's just stuck with him. I can't say that I like it much, but it is what it is.

                              Here's the best way to look at it. If you are talking about a QB, and you just say "Matt"...nobody is gonna know who you are talking about. However, if you just say "Eli", everybody on the planet is gonna know who you are talking about.
