Those are pretty close to mine. I also predict only one blowout. If the Steelers were at full strength I think they beat Denver but they're not…

Re: NFL has arrived

Wow. What a superbowl. At half time, I was thinking no way New England would be able to get back into the game with Atlanta destroying them (Atlanta leading 21 -3 at half). But then wow, what a comeback in the fourth.. I am still shocked. First OT and then NE came back to win it all. Wow.

New England 34-28 Atlanta

Belichick should send Quinn a thank you card for throwing the game. The Falcons had the ball on New England's 22 with about 3 1/2 minutes left - a chip shot for Bryant. It was incredibly stupid to do anything but keep it on the ground - 3 runs up the gut and who cares if you don't gain a single yard? A field goal would have put the game out of reach, in all likelihood. When Ryan dropped back, I yelled at the idiotic call. When he was sacked, I figured the Falcons had just lost the game.

That loss is on their coach.

Re: NFL has arrived

of course Atlanta defense was getting tired near the end but yeah, they didn't need to do anything crazy or drastic to win the game. Any team leading by that much at the half just needs to do basic things and essentially eat the clock (proper use of clock management), don't lose the ball (turnover) and no sack!

Wow, I am still in shock.. I never thought New England would have won that game. Seriously.. Wow.

Greatest collapses.. Brings back terrible memories of the Buffalo Bills / Houston Oilers game in 1993....

Re: NFL has arrived

Exactly! On Atlanta's previous possession, they decided to pass on third down and New England's pass rush (which was on fire at that point) resulted in a fumble that set them up around the 30. Time was on Atlanta's side until they shortened the field, but I can't really fault them for being aggressive - dance with what brung you (as the saying goes).

On their next possession, when Ryan scrambled and hit Julio, it started to look like Atlanta still had enough fight left to win it. Then, they got it to NE's 22, and they were set up for a chip shot for Bryant. At that point, the only acceptable play call is a simple run up the gut - no additional yards are necessary, but taking time off the clock and/or timeouts away from NE is icing on the cake. Instead, they try to run wide on first down, which requires complicated blocking (unlike a run up the middle), and they got flagged for holding - stupid. They are still within Bryant's range - he's pretty consistent at 53 yards. So, they drop Ryan back to pass and he gets sacked - compounded stupid.

You know; I'm no coach. I could never have gotten that team to that point, but I did know what not to do once they had the ball set up for a chip shot of a field goal. It's almost like Atlanta's coaching staff thought, "Okay, how can we blow it?" The ending of that game looked as if it were staged. Either that, or Arthur Blank ought to schedule an MRI for Dan Quinn - perhaps a tumor suddenly appeared in his brain.
