  1. Yo - my friend and I are thinking of going to the week 2 MNF game against the Broncos. We were thinking of flying into Nashville and driving to ATL from there. We figured to go camping or something like that to break up the driving and by looking at a map, Chattanooga National Forest is kind of on the way to ATL, whereas the Smokies seem a little out of the way, but maybe worth it? We would be leaving Nashville Sunday morning to go camping and would be looking to leave camping on Monday to get to ATL in time for dinner before the game. Keep in mind, we are Northeasterners, so either would be a new experience. Or, if you have another suggestion, let me know. Thanks

  2. Coaching..........is screwing him up. Remember 2008 Smith was coaching to win, coached with fire and, now he is coaching not to loose. Matt needs a coach who inspires him to take those chances again.

    2008: Matt goes head over heels in MIN -- with a playoff seed pretty much already guaranteed (we won btw)

    2011: Matt slides before the third down (GB) and runs OB with plenty of green in front of him (NYG) -- both at critical junctures of our season, and we lost

  3. It was decent until he told Arthur Blank to go kill himself. Cursing aside, his frustration was real. I'm up in NY and a few people have seen this now. Is it unreasonable to think this makes the news in ATL? And if it does, that just maybe someone in the organization is asked to respond to it? And if that were to happen, I actually think AB would sympathize with the guy - until aforementioned suicide reference

  4. Im not sure how this season will end, but one thing that has been eating at me is how consistently we play down to the Bucs level. It really is a hurdle we need to get over so we can finally we get 2 easy wins a year. It just seems like every time we play them, something absolutely miserable happens to keep them in the game. I can go down the list: 2004 - at home, we stop them on 3rd down, force a fumble that is returned for a TD, but they say forward progress was stopped. Reminded me of the 1998 Divisional against the Niners. 2005 - Vick fumbles the handoff to Dunn in the first game, Roddy's drop and the blocked 28 yard FG the second game. 2006 - barely scrape out 2 wins against a terrible team when we are supposed playoff contenders. 2008 - Dunn scores on a 3rd and goal from the 17 -- pathetic. At home, we dominate them, but Ryan throws a pick before the half and they score after 30 minutes of doing nothing. They block our punt and get other aggravating turnovers. 2009 - first game: that ridiculous kickoff return (for a TD i think) when the guy should have fumbled at his 10, second game: the fumbled kickoff right off the bat when we are trying to get a winning season. 2010 - first game, i think they have another TD before the half after doing absolutely nothing. we finally catch a break by stuffing Blount at the end, but that was a good play by the D. second game - they got a diving INT, we lose our diving INT. thankfully, they correctly give us our 2nd diving INT. 2011 - disgusting game capped off by the offsides on 4th and 1. I would love nothing more than to blow this team out

  5. I know he has done a lot to help that city recover, but I really hate Drew Brees. The guy has a Napolean complex to the utmost degree, and when things dont go his way, hes got that annoying pouty b,tch face on the sidelines. He'll throw for 400 yards and 5 TD's and then spew out some BS rah rah statement like "we need to get better." He can't win with grace. He also looks a complete baffoon with that pre-game cheer. And lets not discuss the erupting volcano on his face and his thinning hair

  6. As any semi-decent person who lives in New York knows, Giants fans are at the lowest echelon of humanity. In fact, Im not sure too sure what separates them from piles of festering sh*t left on the side of the road. I used to think PWT only lived out in the boonies .. but boy was I wrong. On any given Sunday in New York City, you only need to listen for the words "Big Blue bro" in order to find a boozed-up degenerate with an IQ lower than Vince Young's. These people honestly have it in their minds that they are physically tough BECAUSE they are Giants fans. I swear, everywhere I go, I hear the same sh*t: "ah, Big Blue bro .. the D is gonna dominate them bro. F**king murder them kid. Yo, I dont see no reason why Eli dont hang 600 yards on these clowns, no joke. F**king, Jacobs, bro, JACOBS, running like a f**king freight train bro. And dont get me started on the D, kid, dis f**king JPP kid has LT written all over him .. ALL OVER HIM. He should go to the courthouse tonight and get his f**king name changed. I havent felt dis good about the Jints since Hostetler was shredding the Bills in the SuperBowl kid. And then you got this Hakee -- oh my god, OH MY GOD bro ... do the Blue Shirts (Rangers) play tonight? Oh my god bro, dat f**king Dubinksy kid, hes f**king Gretzky 2.0 kid" ... etc, etc. You get the picture. On a side note, I see a correlation between being a Giants fan and liking Tim Tebow. They all love the guy, i dont get it. He sucks. I cant wait til he plays a real team. Its like watching the 05 Seahawks. Anywho, i better live up to my oath. Last year, I vowed to root for the Giants against the Eagles, and I couldnt do it. Miracle at the New Meadowlans happened and we all know what that eventually led to

  7. You're really debating whether to go to your own wedding? Sounds like you're looking for an excuse.

    Seriously though, Julian has the right of it. Stay on the resort and you'll be fine.

    ha, no, not my wedding .. a friends, but thanks for the advice

  8. I must say this thread is a bit of a reach. Matty Melt has had some great games. Not many but he has done it before.

    ****. I really do feel like an a-hole now if this guy is telling me to back off. Admittedly, the timing of this thread was terrible, and for that I apologize. I also apologize for the overall sentiment of the thread. It came off as bashing Ryan, but really it was me trying to say he needs to be more consistent in the clutch. Certain guys in this league you KNOW will close out the game if they get the chance, and Im not sure hes there yet. But the fact that hes only in his fourth year isnt lost on me. And for what its worth, I thought of a great game that fit this description, 09 at Giants, which I am embarrased to say now I was at. Again, I apologize

  9. Stupid thread. Time for another name change, Mary.

    this actually made me crack up. I dont post enough to establish an identity here, so I go with the flavor of the week name when i do post. Perhaps I will have to switch again after this topic though

  10. I understand the importance of todays win. A road win against a good team, momentum headed into the bye, an NFC tiebreaker. So I have plently to be happy about, but we are deluding ourselves if we think this team, as it is playing right now, can hang with the Saints and Packers. I cant prove my loyalty to or passion for Ryan, so I wont try, but he hasnt established himself as a closer just yet. I believe in time he will.

    And I can think of quite a few games we have won because of Ryan, but my question, and perhaps I should have clarified, is, has Ryan ever led a game winning drive when that drive was ultimately our last chance to score? The 2010 SF game, fine, but before that improbable Roddy strip, everyone in the building knew that would be our last chance to score. 2010 BAL, ehh, again, we got put in spots we shouldnt have been in and the PI call was iffy.

  11. I'm honestly not hating on him, Im confident he will eventually get back to 2010 form, but I cant recall any game winning drive that wasnt controversial (2010 Ravens game) or not of meaningful length (2010 Packers, 2008 Bears). I mean, even Redman has one during that time (2009 Bucs home). Theres been some game ending drives, but I remember them being RB-heavy (2008 Packers, 2009 at Bucs). I guess you could say the Jets in 2009, but we had a big facemask call and a huge Snelling run. And with 2010 at Saints, I am referring to end of regulation. Also, I believe we would have gotten one in Philly in 2008 had the refs not hosed us. Theres been a few times where we could have put games away with some more conversions (2010 Saints home). Theres also 2010 at Pittsburgh where he throws a pick right off the bat in crunch time. Perhaps I am just overly negative regarding this offense, but I cant think of any of the types of drives I am referring to. Im sure I'll get some negative comment about having too much time on my hands, but I happen to have a good memory (which makes this topic even more troublesome).

    PS - as far as the 2010 Ravens game, I dont think Roddy pushed off, I am referring to the 4th down pass interference call on Tony G
