You should detest the absolute horrendous situational football the Falcons exercised. 

 

It was really horrible. You would think that Dan Quinn would have learned from 2 years ago.  I don't get why the Falcons were not running the ball more in the 2nd half. And that sack...ugh.

Is it the big game, the Super Bowl, that made the Falcons abandon common sense? I don't get it. They had the game won. All they had to do was not screw up. They were up BIG!

Seriously though, let's all be happy we're not Falcons fans tonight. Can you even imagine? That SuperBowl loss to he Saints has nothing on this.

Biggest choke job in sports history.  What could possibly top it?

LockeDown, you called it.  My sentiments exactly.  You would have been up 11 points had you kicked a field goal if you didn't get cute trying to pass, instead ;you get sacked.....You are a Pagano clone Shanahan.  Bad decisions, bad play calling...

That was actually a really great game. 

 

Far better than last year's. 

 

That game was pretty incredible but the Pats hate them or love them.....they usually give good Super Bowl.

Yeah, they do; very entertaining to watch. 

 

I'm just so upset with the Falcons, right now; disgusting.

It is unbelievable. It made no sense. When I saw them in field goal range, I said that all they need to do is not mess up and get the field goal. I don't get why they did not just run out more clock and settle for the FG. That is all they needed. SMH

Atlanta was lucky to even be in that position honestly. Brady throwing the pick six and Blount fumbling were gifts from heaven that never happen to NE.

 

ATL's bad defense showed it's face in the end 

 

Better team won as much as it sucks.

Bogie had often given me the run down of how the Falcons operate. They get a big lead and sit on it for the entire game. It often works but not always since they did go 11-5 and lost the big game.

 

I think the Chargers are a team who came back in the regular season and shocked the Falcons at home.

 

Falcons also apparently run the "Saints lite" playbook so many Saints fans can kinda call the Falcons plays at times ahead before they happen. lmao

They redefined the word choke. The silver lining for the Manning fans should be the same as it is for me the Favre fan - a choke is what you just saw. Getting blown out in the playoffs like Manning or throwing an interception on a desperation heave like Favre isn't a choke. I don't even know what the Falcons actually did...I mean what was that...choke is all I got.

I was thinking the same thing. I thought they would just run the ball and try to run the clock out, since everyone could see the Patriots were gaining steam and time was in the Falcons hand.

 

When the fourth quarter approached, I was very confident the Falcons would win. I know the Patriots have a history of coming back, but the Falcons were up by so much, they would need to completely screw up in key situations, which they unbelievably did.

 

Just unbelievable.

 

Can't imagine being Falcons fans and especially players. 

 

Imagine how Matt Ryan feels.

What that was, from the coach on down, was a true exercise in choking. It is the epitome of choking in the NFL. 

 

Never seen anything like it.

You know what sucks? The Peyton-Brady debate is essentially over now. I still think Peyton is the greater, more dominant player (while Brady is amazing, he still got the greatest coach of all time too), but with this win, I don't see how anyone other than Colts fan/ People who hate the Pats will disagree with the notion that Brady isn't the goat.

Yeah, that was ugly.  They had so many opportunities to put the Pats away too.  It seems kinda surreal.  Imagine being Dan Quinn, what do you say to the players in the locker room after the game?

Lol You say, "we suck".

 

But for real, I don't even know. 28- 9 in the 4th. Doesn't get much better than that.

Does anyone think the long halftime show contributed to the Falcons' loss?  Atlanta's offense went over an hour without touching the ball and looked completely out of sync in the 2nd half.

Nah. They still scored again in the third quarter.

Same thing happened when the Pats played the Eagles in the SB. I think that was the long long Paul McCartney SB and it gave the chance for the Pats coaches to completely change their first half gameplan they admitted later on.

14 points and looked unstoppable in the first half.  7 points (including 0 in the 4th quarter) and completely out of sync in the 2nd half.  I'm not saying that was the reason because Atlanta had plenty of opportunities to put the Pats away, but if this game had a regularly length halftime, maybe the Falcons put up another score?

Offense choked, defense choked, coaches choked.  That was ugly.  I feel bad for Arthur Blank.

 

Actually thats typical Falcons.......if you talk to a Saints fan all year long like I do and read Saints fans forums they have been screaming for a while that the Falcons really just ripped off the Saints playbook and copied it. And run the Saints 2.0 offense. I seen Saints fans literally call out Falcons plays before it happens. Only difference when the Saints were good they were more of a second half team and the Falcons are a total first half team.

 

Also, what Atlanta does alllll year long is get a big early lead and just try to sit on that lead. They did lose 5 games so you have to look at how they lost those. Both the Chargers and KC I believe came back and beat them.

Lol I do too! He was so happy while the Falcons were up; dancing and smiling. 

 

He should be on suicide watch. Lol

Wait! That can't be true, because they looked like they had never played a game with a lead. Lol

    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.

    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
