  1. I'd rather, oh never mind...
  2. I will only watch this game the day after the Falcons win the Super Bowl because only then would I be able to let this go. To this day, I have yet to watch more than two minutes of it since tearfully leaving AFCS that dreadful evening...
  3. No argument here. Mobile quarterbacks gave them fits but a pocket passer like Flacco having to deal with John Abraham coming off the edge? And don't get me started on what Tony G, Roddy, and Julio would've done to that secondary. Oh well...
  4. If I recall, this game was after the loss in Carolina and national folks were doubting how good they really were. The Giants painfully found out how good they were the hard way...
  5. If only they had the '80, '98, or '16 offense to go with it. Oh well...
  6. Nah, not this time fam. They can't even perform a physical to see if his knees have recovered. I'd rather stick with drafting Dobbins or Helaire instead. If they're available...
  7. Agreed. Until someone like Google comes in with their fiber service and undercuts them...
  8. While I would rather be part of a turnaround or a paradigm shift in terms of changing a franchise, I can see Bartkowski's point. Many of us oldheads remember spending many a Sunday afternoon in a half-empty, run down AFCS watching Rankin's boys get their backs blown out by Montana's 49ers or Dickerson's Rams. And that was the only way you'd get to see them play at home because so most of the games were blacked out, with many of the road games shown on TV being so gruesome that it may have violated our 8th Amendment rights. And please don't get me started on the dark ages between '84-90 when a 7-win season was the high water mark, no coach of worth wanted to come here, and folks on the team were turning up dead during the week. While I had no doubt that the Smiths wanted to win, they were as tight with their $$$ as Hugh Culverhouse was running the Bucs or Mike Brown currently is with the Bengals. Believe me, if the 1996 Summer Olympics weren't in play for Atlanta to get back in the late-'80s along with the chance to host a Super Bowl or two, there would have been little/no incentive for taxpayers to sign off on adding the motel/hotel tax necessary to build the Georgia Dome. And without that, this team would've been in Jacksonville after the '90 season. While things haven't gone according to plan since that game, I'll gladly take AB roaming the sidelines over anything the Clampetts...err...Smiths were doing. No doubt that Nobis and Tuggle would've already been in the HOF by now. And there's no chance in the blazing, blue h3ll that AB would've allowed so many guys to walk after the '80 season or fired Leeman Bennett after a playoff year in '82. While we all want better than what we've seen, it's still better than what we had...
  9. Oh my. Wow. If they were actually involved in the covering up of this, I really don't see how anyone could possibly support such a franchise. Then again, being the Saints, I could see how...
  10. They act more irrational with every playoff loss. I can't wait until next season...
  11. It would've been that plus some personal foul call on the Falcons which would've knocked them out of field goal range...
  12. Yup. Didn't see us hang up billboards when Navarro Bowman had Roddy in the cobra clutch in 2012...
  13. I fully expect a Louisiana senator to hold up Congress tomorrow to discuss his team getting screwed over like Bret Hart in the Survivor Series...
  14. We got beat in a Super Bowl by an all-time great. They just got beat by effin Kirk Cousins AT HOME. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL....
  15. As Tupac would say, you are appreciated...
