When I look at the caliber of the playoff teams this year Atlanta has no business being in the mix. 13-3 record means nothing when you haven't played good teams all years. Other teams earned thier playoff spot...
Atlanta was pretty much given thiers.

Re: HARD LOSS

It was definitely a tease. I felt bad for Seattle fans who had to feel like we did when we lost to the niners in the playoffs. No way Atlanta beats San Fran.

Re: HARD LOSS

Saw a stat one time that kickers that are iced and miss the 1st kick that is negated by the timeout are MORE accurate (80%) on the 2nd try.

If it were me as the head coach (Pete Carroll in this case), I would have made a spectacle of myself for the opposing bench by runnning over to the ref but not calling the timeout and hope that screwed the kicker up since he was expecting the timeout to be called.

Giving kickers a practice kick doesn't seem to work well to me.

Re: HARD LOSS

It seems a lot of people are giving Atlanta a chance because they don't want to believe Seattle is anything less than a NFC powerhouse already. Idk I don't think ravens are beating pats. i could be wrong but really Baltimore played their best offense against Denver.

Well I said one time before if Atl does do anything in the playoffs, it will be there defense to do it. Thats exactly what happened in the Seattle game by holding Seattle scoreless in the first half.

I think its also funny Atl is lucky enough to run into 2 teams with rookie QBs.

Re: HARD LOSS

Yeah lucky but SF has a much better coach. And Wilson's versatility was what enabled Seattle to come back. San Fran is a better defense though. It will be interesting however as Atlanta is the emotional team. I just pray Atlanta doesnt win the sb.

If they do watch who they schedule opening night..........us.

I Flacco can keep slinging it like he did they have a chance but I think Ol' Bill will have him confused with some crazy scheme and then Brady will pick an old and slow defence apart.

The Pats have a pretty good defense, acquiring Talib back in November seems to be working out for them. Wolfork, Ninkovitch, Mayo, Hightower, Tavon Wilson, McCourty ... they got some good talent on that squad. I didn't get a chance to see 'em much during the season, but I was really impressed by the Houston game. Plus they got Bellichek.

Re: HARD LOSS

I hear Pete Carroll just got hired at Toys-R-Us. Apparently he'll be giving games away for the post season....
