  1. Agree 100%. The 2010 team was IMO the best overall team of the Ryan era. They were solid, didn't make mistakes, and ran the ball well. Just ran into a hot QB who had one of the all-time great playoff runs. Worth noting that he hasn't duplicated that run or been to a Super Bowl since. 2012 maybe hurts more knowing how close the Super Bowl was (with a very beatable Ravens team waiting), but 2010 team was better. Similarly, the 2017 team was actually better in many ways than the 2016 team. People forget that the 2016 team was a mediocre 7-5 after Ryan threw a pick-2 to lose ag
  2. Julio is not necessary to win a championship. In fact, teams have done it 10 years in a row without him.
  3. It's a sad day in that it's another reminder that the Super Bowl window is closed with this core of players. It's been closed for years and the rebuild came two years too late. Too many careers doomed by TD's bad contracts and his inability to evaluate talent in the trenches. Thanks for the memories, Julio, especially for the first half of the 2012 NFC championship game. On the other hand, good riddance, and don't let the door hit your *** on the way out. Flame away, but I have always said and still do say he's overrated. Don't get me wrong, he's a dynamic player and any team is
  4. There are many good candidates, as others have listed (and I agree with), but I'd like to also give an honorable mention to 2019. Watching Ryan get sacked in Minnesota over and over again in week 1, I knew the season was toast 30 minutes into it. Obviously that year doesn't compare to some others, but I can't remember feeling that the season was over so early on as that year. It was even more disappointing because at the time, I remember knowing it was the beginning of the end of the DQ era and that the championship window really was closed.
  5. The rare "game-losing touchdown". Only the Falcons. It was almost as funny as the time they lost to KC in 2016 on the first pick-2 in NFL history.
  6. This picture sums up the 2020 season perfectly. Only the Falcons could score a game-losing TD.
  7. I'm not even mad. At this point it's just gotten to be truly impressive and incredible to watch. This team has perfected the art of the choke. We are witnessing a dynasty that may never be matched.
  8. Name the best wide receivers of the last 25 years. I'm talking elite talents--guys whom you could build an entire offense around. -Julio Jones -Antonio Brown -AJ Green -DeAndre Hopkins -OBJ -Larry Fitzgerald -Dez Bryant -Andre Johnson -Calvin Johnson -Steve Smith -Chad Ochocinco -Randy Moss -Terrell Owens What do they all have in common? Zero Super Bowl rings. Zip. Goose egg. Not saying we should trade Julio (we shouldn't, IMHO), but I'm saying that championship teams aren't built around wide r
  9. I love a smash-mouth running game as much as the next guy, but this team was built on the model of the 2006 Colts. Accurate pocket passer, elite skill-position talent, opportunistic defense. Get out to a big lead and let the pass rushers pin their ears back. It almost worked, but the problem is that we don't have 2006 Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney on this roster.
