Falcons owner on QB Ryan's future: Have to see

Blank parted ways with coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff on Sunday following an 0-5 start. Raheem Morris was named interim head coach, while president/CEO Rich McKay was designated to oversee the day-to-day operations in the interim.

Blank addressed the media Monday and was asked if the 35-year-old Ryan is the quarterback into the future.
