  1. Did you wake up between the moon and New York City?
  2. His lack of slowing Hightower down on the sack was only one of many plays that had they gone differently would have lead to a SB win, so I can't hate on the guy. I really question his agent's announcement during the week of the SB, but that didn't effect anything in the game. Freeman played hard for the Falcons and that style took its toll on him. Buff is my preference to win it all and I hope Freeman is a part of that. I have far more respect for Freeman and how he played for the Falcons than any hard feelings for that one play.
  3. I think there's an important distinction to be made when discussing tanking. I don't think anyone seriously thinks that anybody in the organization wanted to tank. The discussion was mostly about us as fans, do we want the team to finish with the highest draft picks as possible when the season is lost? When I watch it's impossible for me to cheer against the Falcons. How I would've enjoyed winning at KC or when Hill broke free for that big run at TB! But once we lost to the Saints the second time, I knew any remote hope of PO were truly gone, so I genuinely wanted us to finish 4-12 and lo
  4. I know you don't mean it literally, but after 28-3, in 2017 the Falcons were a playoff team and upset the Rams in LA before losing to the eventual SB-winning Eagles. Then in 2018, Ryan's stats were almost as good as his MVP 2016 year. Since 2017, the offense has lost an effective running game when Coleman left for SF and Freeman was just too beat up. RT Schraeder went from Pro Bowl to being released. On defense, what looked like a pair of good CBs for a long time in Alford and Trufant quickly went to crap. Jalen Collins went Cheech and Chong. Then in 2019 the D was decimated with injuries
  5. This year I've had more 'WTH Matt?' moments than probably his rookie year, but there is no way what you wrote about is true. Compared to: no running game, no pass rush, poor coaching, an offensive game plan that rarely fools the opposing D, a defense where at most 4 of our starters would be for sure starters on other teams, etc.? The assessment that the Falcons have to make is 'will Ryan age like Brady, Rivers, or Brees in the next 2 years? - meaning that you will not see a big drop off in performance; or will he age like Flacco and Eli where their play dramatically diminshed? As being ob
  6. To you and yours, and to all on the AFMB, a Happy and Healthy New Year!
  7. Their signature song from the album that sold the most records for a band's debut album until it was broken by Guns N Roses' Appetite for Destruction album.
  8. I don't have a horse in this race between you and TheTrue7 and I will say you have a legit argument as to whether Ryan is a HOF. I went and re-read, twice, every post that you two made about the Moon and Warner comparisons, and I read the Moon HOF Bio link that you provided. And nowhere did TheTrue7 even remotely imply what you posted above. In fact, you didn't manipulate or twist TheTrue7's words because he/she didn't offer any such words to manipulate/twist. The shocking thing you did was to accuse TheTrue7 of being racially ignorant based on something he/she didn't write or, by any obj
  9. He wasn't denying it. He simply didn't place the same degree of emphasis on Moon's and Warner's experiences as part of the reasons that got them into the HOF as you do.
  10. I'm just catching up on this thread, and I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I don't understand your point that I've emphasized above. The OP that started this very thread criticized Ryan for taking two sacks on the first two plays after the Foye INT (not saying you agree with the OP). But to me, I'd rather take a sack on third down assuming the sack doesn't take you out of FG range or if you knew you were going to go for it on 4th down. For example, let's say you have 3rd and 10 at the KC 20 - what difference does it make if Ryan takes a sack there? Sure the FG attempt goes from 37 y
  11. I've always looked forward to your observations as they are always well written and almost always are well-balanced in terms of providing a perspective. This latest effort was well-written but horribly failed at the latter. In fact it's quite sad to think your definition of leadership is Ryan saying 'this loss, this season, the last 3 seasons are all my fault - don't waste your time looking at anything else - because I'm the high paid QB and it's my job to lead us to victory no matter what. In fact, remember the game against Detroit when I told everyone in the huddle, including Gurley, to NOT
  12. It does still sting. I was in grade 9 and seeing the highlights still hurts! But one day I ned to by me a home 1980 Andrews jersey and a road 1980 Bartkowski jersey. Have to treat myself to hose!
  13. LOL, 'make believes' that's one of the names we had for them along with 'make me laughs'. I hadn't heard that in a long time! Watching hockey near the ice level is unlike any other live sport - the speed and physicality of big men on skates is something to behold, and if you're behind the net, just wait until a shot misses the net and hits the glass in front of you!
  14. I assume you're referring to the Flames moving? Throughout the 70s they had competitive teams and played in the toughest division in the NHL. I remember watching a playoff game against Toronto when this happened (it gets particularly good at the 2:10 mark):
