Re: AND THE ICE HAS MELTED!!!!!

Matty "Ice" Ryan and the Falcons have gotten a lot of criticism over the last few years for their inability to win the big games.

So, in the third quarter, when the game got close and the season was on the line, how did "Ice" respond?


To be fair, it could be said that just one mental error could be a fluke, so on the very next drive...


Apparently, this type of "Ice" melts when the pressure is on.

It doesn't get much more damning than that. The evidence is pretty overwhelming that this is what Matt Ryan does and that he can't get it done when the stakes are high.

Anyone seen the new Matt Ryan/Falcons jacket? It's flashy and durable for about four months, but by January it comes apart at the seams.

Anyone remember before SB44 how falcon fans used to say "At least we've been to a superbowl"? That was their ultimate smack talk but it was true. Now the tables are turned and until Atl actually wins a SB, that will forever be their glory in history - losing in a superbowl.

If Atlanta ends up in a superbowl at some point, I'm just soooo glad it's not this year.
They have enough talent to get there. This was their best chance for a while, however, because the Saints are back with a vengence next year.

I want Baltimore to win it all
I need SF to win and Moss to go lights out so he can up the value of my rookie cards. Once the Saints are out of it I root based on profitability to myself.

Re: AND THE ICE HAS MELTED!!!!!

I think it all comes down to the lack of one thing for the Falcons: killer instinct. Sure, they went 13-3, but in how many of those games did they just squeak by? It happened several times during the regular season. They had big leads against the Seahawks and Niners and let both teams get back in it once they took their foot off their necks. They pulled a rabbit out of their hat against the Seahawks, but the rabbit quickly jumped into a boiling pot of water against the Niners. I guess they were afraid they would be chastised for "running up the score". In our Super Bowl year, the Saints were winning handily in the majority of our games, because they never let up. The Falcons always seemed to put it in cruise control after getting what they thought was a comfortable lead. You may can slide by in the regular season that way, but when it comes to the playoffs, you CANNOT give the opponent any slack. It eventually bit them in the ass, just like I knew it would.

In short, the Falcons remind me a lot of any sexual encounters at my age. Start off strong out of the gate, and by the end, it's just a lot of flailing and flopping around until I finally collapse, but I still think I'm on top of the world.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Yes they will.
