Re: Thx Mattyt Ice

Can't help but LOL a little bit @ all you people who thought the Falcons were gonna win this. Delirious people will grasp at straws and believe anything, I guess. Where were the voices of sanity on this forum. It was like a collective delusion overtook you people, and you were CONVINCED it was gonna happen.

21-20, they had serious opportunities... Not like they laid down on purpose...

Really? I don't remember anyone that was "convinced" Atlanta would win. There were quite a few that thought they could, and with a final score of 21-20 it appears they were right.

Re: Thx Mattyt Ice

Really? Go look again at that poll and thread in the "NFL" forum.. I was one of only a FEW people in the other thread about this game, who said it was delusional to think that the Panthers would actually let this game slip. People were pumping Saints sunshine all over the place -- just read the thread. Every single reason or excuse why the Falcons could/should/would win, was trotted out, and almost no realistic discussion at all given about the matchups and the actual Panthers team was brought up. Read the thread and the poll. It was like a mass hysteria gripping people, that the Falcons were somehow very evenly matched with the Panthers and were gonna win, but that is part of fandom I suppose. I was convinced all along that Atlanta would lose, regardless of score, and they did, so I am not really too concerned with it.

You realize the score was 21-20?
Just skimmed that entire thread and no one said they would, some said they could. Didn't see anyone say they would

Re: Thx Mattyt Ice

Yes I realize that. I guess what I meant to say was, I was looking at the whole thing more from the realistic point of view of, given that they had beaten us and secured the #2 seed, I felt like there was NO way Carolina was going to let that game and the #2 seed slip away from them, instead of hanging my hopes that Atlanta "could" possibly win it. And it wasn't *really* that close. Atlanta soared on a spike of emotion early, then Carolina evened it up, took the lead at the end of the half, Atlanta tried to come back but couldn't. It wasn't a dominating performance, but Atlanta was behind on the scoreboard for more time of the game than they were ever ahead, and Carolina has a good defense.

^fhis is what you said. That's a whole lot more insulting than what you're trying to say now

Re: Thx Mattyt Ice

The vote in the poll was 24-14, which is pretty strong, and I think there were a lot of people who said things that made it seem like they felt it was gonna happen. Some of it may have been things I gleaned from other forums, or the radio, but there were plenty of people here and in general, pumping sunshine about the Falcons' chances and the Saints having the #2. I know there are posts about it.

I thought consistently the whole time that it was grasping at straws. Maybe you disagree, it's just my impression, but I felt like there was a lot of euphoria and sort of, marching-into-battle exuberance from Saints fans -- not YOU in particular Danno, but Saints fans in general -- about the Falcons chances of beating the Panthers today and giving the Saints a gift. Maybe I misread what everyone was saying. Maybe the score was close. The Falcons didn't win and I never thought they would, so my sum total emotional loss over the Saints losing the #2 seed because of their needing "help" today is zero. But from 4+ pages of thread, and dozens of posts in other threads, it seems like many people were hoping for it. That's all I meant to say.
