Five things you need to know about the Falcons:1. Ryan ready to soar: Forget all the talk about Matt Ryan going through a sophomore slump last season. The Falcons don’t believe that was the case at all, and they’re right. While Ryan’s numbers didn’t take a huge leap forward, it wasn’t because of any flaws on his part. Atlanta’s offense never really got on track because slot receiver Harry Douglas got hurt early in training camp and running back Michael Turner started off slowly and later got banged up. That threw the whole offense out of whack. Douglas is healthy now, and Turner is in shape. You’re going to see Ryan get a chance to shine in ways he never did last season.
