Love that article. Really love how there are 35 PAGES of comments, most agreeing I watched Atlanta regular season wins over the Ravens, Packers, Bucs, 49ers, Bengals, and of course us. In all of those games but one, the other team completely gave the game away. In the one - Ravens - the refs games the game to Atlanta! So knew there were on shaky ground. Their season reminded me a lot of the Panthers 2008 season. Back then, Carolina had 6 wins by 10 points or less, this year Atlanta had 8! And that "good teams win close games" only applies to when the other team is good too! You shouldn't be squeaking out against sub .500 teams more than 2 times a year. In college football, your ranking drops for that!

The refs gave them the Green Bay game too. I'm surprised more people weren't calling them out. Instead it seemed to be the opposite with all the "Improved defense" and "Matt Ryan is elite" nonsense.

They got their just due in the end though. How sweet it 'tis!

An average team that benefited from uncommon luck and poor officiating. I don't think they had one major injury all season and the blatant push offs, even ESPN started laughing. A season with no injuries only comes around once a decade. If you can't make a run with those circumstances then odds are you won't even come close if you lose a few players.
