    What happened to....FOOTBALL 101? You get up by 14..RUN THE BALL...work that clock, beat down a defense, protect a lead????? Where was any of that? AND....they have two good RB's.

    The Falcons the poster child for what.....we had no experience at this level....looks like.

    They stopped running in the 2nd half because the Patriots were completely shutting down the run game. At least half of their 2nd half runs went for negative yardage. I'm not saying it wasn't stupid to throw on 3rd and 1...but the Falcons saw that NE was selling out to stop the run, and Matt Ryan had been literally perfect to that point, so they put the ball in his hands to carry them across the finish line. And once that pressure was on him, he started making terrible decisions with the football, and was only effective when Julio would bail him out. I put alot of the choke job on Matt Ryan, less on Shanahan. Shanahan called the plays that should have sealed the deal, Matt Ryan just failed to execute them.

    Both, but a little more of a choke.

    All Atlanta had to do was play a little more conservative in the 2nd half. What a shitty way to lose...for "trying too hard."

    Regardless of the result, Julio had "the catch" in this game. Edelman was just lucky that another player's leg happened to be positioned the way that it was.

    Thank you.

    In retrospect, at the time I thought wow Julio just put himself in line for MVP. But now I still have to go with #97 on the Falcons.
    Besides all the sacks and hurries and knocks he did have, he got burned out of yet another one on the game tying drive. He hit Giselle as the throw was being made and it caused a flying quail incomplete. But dumbassed ATL db did an obvious defensive hold.

    How many gifts did ATL give the Patriots in total? Sheesh.

    Don't forget to vote please (if you haven't already).

    Patriots would have won regardless of Edelman's catch, it was not a 4th down play and that defense was tired, just an epic catch though.

    I thought it was over when Julio caught it, almost turned the game off in disgust because 9 out of 10 times that throw would have been picked off.

    How did
    Joe Montana
    Bradshaw
    Aikman
    Rothlesburger
    etc etc

    Win their 1st Superbowl.

    Matt Ryan is a farking 8 year veteran. It does not take a veteran, in fact it does not take above a Pop Warner QB to know when you drop back with the lead in field goal clinching range thus the game virtually on ice, simply throw the damn ball away if no one is open.

    How many of those QB's were facing the GOAT coach/QB combo with a TON of SB experience?

    We simply saw a team in the Pats that knew how to play a big game vs a team in the Falcons that didn't.

    I bet a whole season of self bannishment on two things.....Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. There was noway Dan Quinn and Matt Ryan were winning that game and I knew that, that's why I made that bet.

    If ya noticed while some othersw here were running their mouth with....YIPPPEEEEEEEE SEE SEE WHAT DID I TELL YA....(more or less), I said nothing, very confident what the out come would be and how silly/ridiculous all the rookies would look.

    Dude, how in the hell is anyone going to post here with everyone knowing they lost the bet?

    I had no idea how the Pats were going to win the game I just knew somehow, someway they would. Too much BIG GAME experience vs a team in a whole new world and it showed like I knew it would.
