  1. DEFENSE STILL WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS AT THE END OF THE DAY!!!!!! This Super Bowl was NOT about Tom Brady or even Julian Edelman (even tho he deserved MVP), this Super Bowl was about the Patriots top 10 scoring defense (ranked #7 all year). They overpowered that high powered Rams offense. All year long people thought this would finally be the year a high powered offense wins it all and the talk was this is becoming an offensively friendly league and defenses are going down the drain. Not so fast my friend. If you're a real fan of the sport, as much as you hate the Patriots, you gotten love the defensive scheme and the packages they brought in to take away what the Rams did best. This reminded me of what the #1 defense of Broncos did to Cam Newton and the Panther's high powered offense a few years back. The Falcons have only had 1 top 10 scoring defense after our first Super Bowl appearance, which was in a year that wasn't Matt Ryan's best season and that defense still didn't get enough turnovers. That's unacceptable. Despite how good the 2017 Falcons defense was, I still believe the 1998 Falcons was the last team that gave this city a defense worth getting really excited for. We've had talent like John Abraham, Brent Grimes, Willy Moore, Dwight Freeney, Grady Jarrett, Corey Peters, and so forth, but with the scheme we've had and most of our personnel, we have been a mediocre or average at best defense. As long as Matt Ryan is our quarterback, until our front office can finally put together a great defense, a defense with great leaders that have that dawg and fire in them, we aren't going back to the Super Bowl anytime soon. I don't believe it. High scoring offenses will set all these records in the regular season, but once they get in the playoffs or get deep in the playoffs, a top 10 scoring defense always beats them somehow someway. You don't have a historical offense every year, but you can have no worse than a top 10 scoring defense every year if you have the right scheme, personnel, and coaching staff, and with the amount of numbers Matt Ryan has put up in his 11 seasons in Atlanta, it's a shame that we can't ever give him a defense and it angers me TBH. I don't care how it happens. Dan Quinn should be taking notes here. @JD dirtybird21 You are right. Tom Brady is a great player, but he doesn't deserve all the credit for the Patriots success over the years when you have those top 10 scoring defenses combined with the success of Bill Belichick (the Saban of the NFL) taking away what an opposing opponent does best.
  2. I've heard or read these comments all too often: "If Brady went anywhere else he wouldn't be as successful." "If [insert QBs name] played for Bill Belichick in New England he'd have the same success as Brady, if not more." It's no secret that Bill Belichick runs a tight ship. He's detailed, methodical, and he demands the absolute best from his staff and players. Looking at it from the outside in, it looks like a dream situation to be in. But is it true that any QB would last or be successful in an organization that operates like West Point? I saw this video, and I wonder if Ryan could thrive under Belichick.
  3. Okay, before I make fun of the Saints tears of joy again, I want to bring up some little stats nobody is paying attention to. So are you ready? This is gonna be interesting! The Rams win in OT in New Orleans was the first time in 25 years the Saints lost a home playoff game, which snaps a 7 home playoff win streak for the Saints. The 1993 Eagles in January 1994 were the last team to win a playoff game in New Orleans before the Rams yesterday. Of course that also meant the first time Brees and Payton ever lost a home playoff game too. The 2018 Rams played the AFC West this year, just like the 2017 Eagles, 2016 Falcons, and 2014 Seahawks. Remember from 2006-2012 when all the teams out of NFC who made it to the Super Bowl played the AFC East, which did not favor the Falcons at all since we are usually horrible playing eastern divisions, well those days are over. The Rams advancing to the Super Bowl was the 4th time in 5 years the team out of the NFC who made it to the Super Bowl had the AFC West on their schedule. All of these teams had to face the AFC West and the NFC West (well the '14 Seahawks & '18 Rams in their own division). The Saints played the AFC North this year, and they lost the NFC Championship, which means a team out of the NFC playing playing AFC North still hasn't been to the Super Bowl since the 2004 Eagles. Only the 2002 Bucs and 2004 Eagles made it to the Super Bowl playing the AFC North (and those teams played the NFC North as well). The 1999 Rams last won the Super Bowl in Atlanta against the Titans when they went 13-3. 19 years later, the 2018 Rams are 13-3 in the Super Bowl, going to the Super Bowl in ATLANTA, the same place where the Super Bowl was last time they went! That's interesting, but at the same time, it's a rematch of the 2001-02 Super Bowl match up against the Patriots. The Patriots were 11-5 in 2001 when they beat the Rams, and this time the Patriots are 11-5 playing the Rams again in the Super Bowl....
  4. So the Saints are about to play the Patriots. These are arguably the two teams Falcons fans hate the most. It's a conflicting situation. So the difficult question to ask is, which team do we want to win? We can make an argument for either side: *For a Patriots loss:* Watching them collapse and rack up losses after all the praise they get would be fun to watch. They broke our hearts in the Super Bowl. We've heard enough of the Tom Brady love, it's getting old, just like him. The Saints probably don't pose a threat to winning the division, so a win for them here may not matter. *For a Saints loss:* Long time rivalry. Always good to see them lose. Plus, it's a divisional opponent, so any loss they suffer helps us. We would also never hear the end of it from their fans "hurr durr we beat the Pats and y'all couldn't, haha FailClowns!!"
  5. Congratulations to the New England Patriots for winning Superbowl LI! While Matt Ryan won the league MVP,Tom Brady was the MVP OF THE SUPERBOWL! They shut down Julio Jones and the overrated Falcons offense. While the underrated Patriots offense blew the overrated and inexperienced Falcons defense. FINAL SCORE 38-17!!! YOU ARE ALL INVITED TO THE VICTORY PARADE IN DOWNTOWN BOSTON!!!
  6. Super Bowl LI: #1 New England Patriots vs #2 Atlanta Falcons--NRG Stadium, Houston, TX Here we are guys. A season for the ages comes to a conclusion in just a couple of hours. Few expected us to make it this far on such short notice, especially considering all that transpired in the 2015 season. Nevertheless, the team came together and accomplished great things this season and managed to galvanize the city of Atlanta behind their #InBrotherhood mantra. This will only be the second Super Bowl appearance in the Atlanta Falcons' 51 year history, the first coming 18 years ago under head coach Dan Reeves (a Georgia native) in 1998. Obviously much has changed since then, but the goal remains the same, and hopefully this time the journey ends with the Vince Lombardi Trophy going to Atlanta for the first time. RISE UP!
  7. Super Bowl LII odds for every NFL team play Why Broncos, Titans, Eagles could be contenders soon (1:19) Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email comment Jan 24, 2017 ESPN.com NFL Nation reporters analyze every team's odds to win Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Each team's odds, current as of Jan. 23, are presented from best to worst and are courtesy of the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. 5-1 odds New England Patriots The Patriots have the best odds to return to the Super Bowl, which makes sense. Although they have a high number of critical free agents, they will still have Tom Brady (who will turn 40 on Aug. 3), Bill Belichick and a coaching staff that remains intact at the all-important coordinator spots. Those are the key pieces, which should have the Patriots back in contention again next season. -- Mike Reiss 8-1 odds Dallas Cowboys The Cowboys should enter next season as one of the NFC favorites. Of course, we said the same thing in 2015, after their 12-4 record in 2014, and they finished 4-12. Nothing is guaranteed, but the Cowboys have pieces in place at key positions, especially offensively with the line, Ezekiel Elliottand Dak Prescott. They need to add pieces to the defense, but this was a team that could have been in Super Bowl LI if not for Aaron Rodgers. -- Todd Archer 10-1 odds Pittsburgh Steelers The Steelers' 10-1 odds hit a sweet spot based on the roster returning for 2017. The Steelers own the contractual rights to most of their key players, the defense is brimming with young, speedy options, and one void on the current roster -- an explosive second outside receiver opposite Antonio Brown -- will be filled by Martavis Bryant, assuming he regains trust after a yearlong suspension. A top-shelf offensive line is in its prime. Tight end and pass-rusher are a few positional question marks, but the Steelers are as well-positioned as any team to go deep into January 2018. -- Jeremy Fowler 12-1 odds Atlanta Falcons EDITOR'S PICKS Super Bowl LI betting line The New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, Feb. 5 in Houston. Here is the current betting line from the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. NFL championship weekend betting takeaways What did we learn from a gambling perspective from the NFL championship games? Dave Tuley reveals his takeaways, along with what it could mean in Super Bowl LI. The teams ahead of the Falcons with better odds include the Patriots, Cowboys and Steelers. What does it all mean? Nothing really because it's just something to play around and have fun with when it's this early. The Falcons return their core next season, including MVP front-runner Matt Ryan, and that should help them stay in serious contention. That's not to mention how young the defense is, with four rookies and three second-year players as the main contributors at season's end. Those players will be that much better next season. -- Vaughn McClure http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/32for32x170124/way-too-early-super-bowl-lii-odds-every-nfl-team-2017
  8. Funny:....but typical. By Judy Battista NFL.com: "The NFL is about adversity in general, the way you handle it, approach it day to day," Romo said. "I think the job for our football team is to find ways to win. We have a group of guys in that room that I think can do that." Perhaps they do, but the schedule won't help the Cowboys. They might be able to slip past some of their reeling division opponents, but it is hard to imagine they can score enough points without Romo and Bryant to keep pace with the Patriots next month, or to find a way around Seattle's defense in November or to stay with the Packers in December, if Romo and Bryant are still unavailable by then. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000535668/article/dallas-cowboys-hoping-to-survive-until-tony-romo-returns
  9. I have been a Falcons fan for some time now and I am not sure what is going on with our fans. We lost a game to an average team and so what. It is football and thats the best part of it because anyone can beat anyone. Instead of crying and whining, how about we make the dome LOUDER than it ever was. Win or Lose be loud on every down not only on 3rd down. Take a look at Seahawks fans and how loud they get. They are breaking records along with their team. I believe we can RISE UP and shut down Tom Brady. We the fans can be the 12th player on the field that causes chaos for Mr.Tom Brady. There is no need to look back and be negative. Lets go 13-0 and believe we can do it! Lets boost the confidence of our team by showing up early to the dome and start being loud from the second they get on the field. I AM READY for Gisele
