Falcons | Redman wants the starting job

The Associated Press reports Atlanta Falcons QB Chris Redman isn't ready to hand over the starting job to rookie QB Matt Ryan. Ryan is clearly the team's quarterback of the future after they drafted him in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft, but Redman wants to be the team's No. 1 quarterback when the season begins. Redman, the incumbent starter, said he feels he has earned respect around the team and he will be OK as long as he does his part. Redman completed 59.7 percent of his passes last year for 1,079 yards, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. His 90.7 quarterback rating in 2007 was the best of any of the quarterbacks on the team.
