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

    • Even IF we do sign Houston (I am for it!).........We would have four of five DEs that will be FAs in the next 12 months   Not a great situation   And.... if Turray gets 12 sacks, he will want huge money......   (I dont know if they will pay it)   Our current Defensive End group is one of the weakest in the NFL, maybe bottom 5.   There is really no other way to look at it   We have chosen NOT to address this in FA, which is fine......   That leaves the draft. and really ONLY the draft   Thats why I dont choose to get excited over bringing in other positions early than OT and DE, in the early rounds.   We need to get some decent prospects for DE this year, or we will be in the same situation next year    
    • I could be wrong because I don't follow every team with the same fervor as I do the Colts, but I can't recall Bill Belichick making statements like "You want to raise your own" and "We want to have a sound structure in place where you're producing great talent for the Colts.". Perhaps he has, but he also has the benefit of winning more Super Bowls than any other Coach in NFL history on his side. Right now, Chris Ballard doesn't have the clout to be able to take such a hard line stance. To make statements about raising your own and producing great talent means that when guys that you draft go out and actually produce on the field you reward them for doing so. I don't even understand why re-signing Leonard or Q would even require a 2nd thought. I seriously think that there is no way Chris Ballard can please this forum. Every year when free agency rolls around the forum goes crazy because Ballard is too cheap or can't close the deal. When he is successful in the draft the positions that he drafted (WLB or OG for instance) aren't "the glamour or most important positions" Personally, I think what Chris Ballard has done is outstanding. He has positioned us to be a playoff caliber team without giving up a ton of draft capital or putting the team in a bad salary cap situation. As far as the free agents that the Patriots signed this offseason do you really think signing Jonnu Smith to 31 million guaranteed or Nelson Agholor to 15 million guaranteed were good deals? To me it looks the Patriots might have had to over pay free agents this year to come in and play for them. I think on this subject, we will just have to agree to disagree because like I said earlier unless the Maniac says he wants starting QB money I think the Colts have to and will re-sign him.
    • I totally agree you said it perfectly Houston was ehh last season and believe if he was anymore than ehh Ballard would already signed him already. This is a big year for Turay if he can stay healthy maybe he can have a big year. I believe Ballard has a plan and I'm looking forward to finding out what it is.
