  1. There's really no need for advice on this. It was a once-in-a-lifetime collapse. It's never happened before and I doubt it will ever happen again. There's a reason we had a 99% chance of a Lombardi in hand. Every single thing (EVERY SINGLE THING) had to go wrong for a quarter and a half. The Freeman missed block. The inane decision not to run it. The impossible Pats catch that coulda, shoulda been Alford's second INT. Two two-point conversions. H*ll, we were a shoestring tackle from taking an onside kick to the house even BEFORE all the above. Change any single one of these things (and many more, those are just the most egregious) and we win. As long as I live and watch sports, I'll never get over that game. It was ours. It was over. Until it just ... wasn't. A full year later and I still can't really believe we blew the surest chance we'll ever have.
  2. Though I'm sure no one else would say it (because it didn't "mean" much of anything as a game), the 2015 Redskins game will always be a special one for me. As an out-of-town fan, I only made it to the Georgia Dome 3 times total, and that was the only win I saw. And WHAT A WIN. An overtime pick-6 (that covers over 50 yards) is about as exciting as it gets. For actual implications, the NFCCG against the Packers can't currently be beat. Watching the confetti rain down to close the Dome, knowing we had earned our ticket to the big one by flat-out demolishing Rodgers ... that was sweet.
  3. What if it had been Saints/Pats? I'm literally ill considering that ...
  4. I also really believe we would have beaten Baltimore that year (and in the Saints house too). And obviously last year we should have had it. #(&&%&#(&(Q*@Q&*($&@(&@($(@((@
  5. I don't think I can stomach another offseason living in Boston with these a$$hole arrogant fans coming off another trophy. And I have a cousin and a dear friend who are Eagles fans. So ... go Philly, I guess. Ugh.
  6. Ha, fair enough. Although the Minnesota/Saints game last week gave me SOME hope they don't utterly despise us.
  7. It's the only thing that could karmically make up for what we all went through as fans in 51. So ... as improbable as it is, I'm all in on that one. The football gods owe us.
  8. Dude, what the h*ll is your issue with me lately?
  9. Man, this kid really hasn't learned to rein it in, has he? (I f'ing love it. )
  10. If there's any upside to this, it's that our D held the Eagles at home to 9 less points the WHOLE game than the supposed iron curtain defense of Minny has in one half. Give them a few more pieces and some growth, and oh man. EDIT: Forgot about the pick-6. Nevertheless ....
  11. Ever notice that when the Pats go down 14-whatever in the playoffs, the flags start coming out? Flag on every single third down in 51 once we went up 14-0, anyone?
  12. A decade at least
  13. I mean, I SHOULD feel bad. I know this pain, even if my reaction was completely different. I fully understand that this was a very, VERY different type of loss (an instantaneous stab to the heart versus a gradual meltdown) but if someone had videos of me from last February, they are the polar opposite of this. I basically just went into a state of suspended animation during the comeback and ended in something approaching a coma, though my eyes were still open and locked on the TV. Eventually I very quietly got up, took down all my living room decorations (there were A LOT), had a moment of rage puncturing my Falcons balloons with scissors, and walked into my bedroom, gently shut the door, and silently sobbed while posting on AFMB until 5 am. I understand the pain. I SHOULD feel bad. But do I? NOPE. It's the life of a sports fan, and these are our arch-rivals. We had to endure it, why shouldn't they?! Awesome vid.
  14. Indeed. And notched the first road playoff win in the entire Ryan era. It's not what I WANTED from the season, and I pretty much do fall in the "Super Bowl or bust" camp myself. But honestly given how heart-wrenching SB 51 had to be for the players (I can't even imagine, given how wrenching it was as a fan), simply not imploding this year was impressive. Being the only NFC team to return to the play-offs and not being "one and done" at the very least keeps some positive momentum going.
  15. I do think I heard it was the first 2 years of the franchise where we had a playoff WIN in back to back seasons. So if that's true, it's somethin'. At least speaks to yielding a competitive product.
