Man I still can't believe the Falcons managed to give that game away lol
I'm not convinced that anything short of deliberately trying to lose would have been sufficient to get the job done

Matt Ryan should be really ashamed of himself. His numbers really mean shit. The way he was holding onto the ball with defenders barrelling down his throat was just sad....and in the 4th he didn't even really go through his progressions anymore. Just staring at one player for like 3 seconds until somebody lit him up. What a waste.

I agree, OT should allow each team a possession regardless of scoring a TD or a FG. I mean, almost everyone in the world knew New England was going to score a TD and win when they won the coin toss.



Haven't seen a team in red and black give up a lead that badly since Milan in Istanbul.

...meh, at best.

I really hate these standarized logos. At least they didn't fuck up the Patriots' end zone this time around.

I hate the continued usage of Roman Numerals.

Agreed but the next time they probably will not use Roman numerals is Super Bowl 75.

Glad that another field goal kicker got in the Hall of Fame there are at least a couple retired ones that also deserve to be in and there are more then a couple of active ones that should get in eventually. Kinda sucks that Larry Centers didn't make it in but I guess he will make it in in sometime in the next ten years.



I like how they opened up the MVP voting at the end of the third quarter. Tons of people probably voted for Matt Ryan only to have Brady and company take the game away from them. They also shot themselves in foot when they were in field goal range in the fourth by getting sacked and holding penalty which knocked them out of the range.

I'm not too upset that I did terrible in the preseason picks.  I picked the Super Bowl winner and the worst team right at least...  Other than that my picks were pretty shitty considering my lack of knowledge about most other teams.  At least I won the loser bracket which isn't too bad for first time playing.



Before this thread fades away for good, I thought this story would be worth posting here.

Full disclosure: I'm not 100% sure that this is true, but I sincerely hope it is.



What a massive chokejob by Atlanta. Only thing I have seen comparable with my own eyes is Houston in that playoff game against Buffalo where they blew a 35-3 lead IIRC. Seattle a couple years ago was close with that absolutely horrific play call that resulted in the Pats win. But yikes, this was bad.



Tom Brady is a great QB no doubt but this is a team sport so major props to Hightower, someone I feel goes underappreciated. Stopped Beast Mode in SB49 from getting a game-winning touchdown and forced a fumble at a very key point in time in SB51.



Major props to you big fella.
