    Worst NFL playoffs I can remember. Even the comeback was somehow uneventful. Some dumb plays and a lucky catch and it's another boring pats SB. Every other game to this point was boring as well. I really didn't enjoy any game. The only one that was mildly entertaining was Dal/GB, and even that sucked since I'm a Cowboys fan.

    I feel bad for Falcons fans.
    They should be partying now.

    I have some legit Falcon fan friends on Facebook. Their shock and despair is something else.

    The only good thing is Jet fans can stop whining about Dan Quinn now...though he would have REALLY been the perfect fit to coach them after tonight :sarcasm:

    Agree entirely. Tonight's Suberbowl was awful until the last 10 minutes, and the playoffs were miserable other than GB/Dallas.

    One of my best friends from college is from ATL and a huge ATL fan of all their teams (and GA Tech) - the misery must be horrible.

    Play calling for the Falcons was horrible down the stretch and it ended up screwing them over big time. There was no reason to pass when you're in field goal range with a few minutes left. All you had to do was run it, but nope, get sacked and take a holding penalty to give Brady the ball back. Unreal.

    I'll go a step forward and say it was one of the worst NFL seasons in a long while.

    Way too many ****** teams, and ****** games.

    I'd say I feel sorry for the Falcons, but I'm still bitter about the '98 NFC Championship game, so screw 'em.

    I was worried Bryant would have that moment today with the way it was going :laugh:

    Quinn and Ryan should have at least given him the chance though.

    Gee, thanks. Why don't you make me relive the 2001 Cup Final, or the Game 7 debacle against Carolina while you're at it? :P

    How you can say that was a boring Pats SB is just silly. That was the largest comeback in Super Bowl history. The game was written off by a ton of people at halftime. I'm not even a Pats fan but for christ sake that was NOT a boring game.

    That's on Shanahan. There's no reason to not run the ball three times and kick a FG when they had the ball on NEs 22 to go up 11. That cost them the game. Shanahan completely handed the Pats the game.

    It was a boring game for 3.5 quarters. Don't confuse an all-time insane finish with being a good game.
