With the Atlanta Falcons ready to break in shiny new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, their impressive new home, Matt Ryan and Devonta Freeman were asked what greatness means to each of them.
"You've got to have that work ethic," says Freeman.
“Greatness, to me, is being the best version of yourself every day,” Ryan says in a new video released by Mercedes-Benz USA.

While the stadium is absolutely incredible, Freeman says his journey there relied on something simple: focus and a belief in hard work.
“To the kids that come from Atlanta and the kids that grew up in the projects, I would like to say look at me,” he says. “I’m just like you. I came from that area. The sky’s the limit.”
Important takeaways on GREATNESS from these two elite NFL players:
- Having a significant work ethic is vital.
- Be the best version of yourself day-in and day-out.
- You have to believe in yourself, as well as the hard work it will take by trusting the process.
- There are no limits to what you can achieve regardless of where you came from.
