Good to see you!!

if san fran gets out front early then maybe they've got a better chance to spoil one of these kc fairy-tale comebacks

It does seem that Mahomes and the Chiefs are unstoppable, but we have seen incredibly explosive offenses in the SB before and though occasionally they win the game, it is usually low scoring and close which of course plays into the Niners hands.    Some of the greatest offenses fates: 98 Vikes didn't even make SB, both Rams greatest show on turf teams; one squeaked out a victory by literally 2 feet in a low scoring affair and the other was shut down and lost to the Pats, 2012 Pats didn't even make it to SB,  84 Dolphins got routed by the Skins, 83 Skins got routed by the Raiders, All 4 of the SB Bills teams had quite prolific offenses and we saw how that turned out,  2011 Saints did not even make the big game, and this one still hurts me personally 2016 Falcons, not even going to go into how that one turned out, 2007 Patriots and the Eli game, the prolific 2013 Broncos got manhandled by Seattle and their great D.   There are a few great offenses that have won it all, but not many.  

 

Now, having said all that.  Chiefs 31-24. {#Lol}

with a little luck and planning you can usually go to a live event for less than a house/rent payment

and no tailgating allowed at this game?

that's just wrong

I used to work for a company that did a lot of charitable donations to universities and into December one year they were given a block of tickets to the Rose Bowl. They decided to give them away to employees by lottery. Of course most people had their Christmas holiday plans, as had I - I had already bought tickets to see my sister who was living in LA. So pretty good odds and my BIL and I ended up down low at about mid field.

Even as a roughly 50 year fan of Boston sports teams, I can honestly say I feel bad for Ryan as well. I have followed his career since the BC days and have always liked him. I really didn't want to see him escape the "not in the clutch" tag against the Pats, but wouldn't have been severely bummed if he had.
This one needs to be laid at the ATL coaching staff's feet, not Ryan's. They gambled on the pass and lost in a few situations that smart money said to run the ball and take what you can get. The Pats weren't exactly stellar about sealing the edge on Freeman...
For all the accolades Brady and the offense have received for the comeback - albeit well deserved - the Pats D really won this game, shutting the birds out over the last 23 minutes, and getting the huge turnover that was desperately needed. Even one field goal would have likely put the game out of reach, as time dictated a limited amount of possessions for Brady and Company.
Ryan played great, even with the Pats far exceeding expectations on containing Jones - just 4 catches, two of which were spectacular. He has nothing to be ashamed of. The Falcons should be the class of the NFC along with Dallas for the next few years. In this game they just ran into a much more seasoned team and staff on a mission.

 
Completely agree that the blame for the loss should go to the coaching staff and not Ryan. Most egregious example of poor play-calling (a series you mentioned): on the series before NE drove to tie the game, Ryan completed an amazing pass to Julio Jones (throw was perfect, the catch was unbelievable) that put Atlanta within easy field goal range. Then the offensive coordinator (who will thankfully be with the 49ers next year) called a pass play that resulted in a sack, followed by another pass play that resulted in a holding penalty, and they were suddenly out of field goal range. All the Falcons needed to do was call a couple running plays, get a few yards closer and then kick a field goal to put the game out of reach with a few minutes to go.

Bellichick deserves credit for his half-time adjustments. Falcons just stuck with the same game plan.

Howie Carr—a columnist at the Boston Herald who lost whatever relevance he had back in the 90s—churned out a whole piece on this goof and how it showed that the Globe was worthless. Didn't have much to say about the Pats' win, you understand...

And when the Celtics won the championship against the hated Lakers in '08, Howie spent a good chunk of his column clucking about the supposedly out-of-control fans, going at lengths to sneer at one woman who yelled on TV (according to Howie), "They pumbled them!" 

So yeah: The Globe blew it. Collect that edition, folks: it's a Boston version of "Dewey Beats Truman." But the Globe doesn't employ bitter old fossils like Howie.

Smart to avoid getting stressed out by not watching the games. I should stop watching teams I care about in big games like this. It really has become too painful. I'm speaking as a Bills fan (still my #1 team, and I'm sure you know their SB history) and now as a Falcons fan (having lived in Atlanta for several years). This loss was particularly tough to swallow because the Falcons seemingly had it wrapped up with a 28-3 lead. It was surreal watching the game turn into a horror show.

I feel bad for Matt Ryan. He played a flawless first half, looking like a younger Tom Brady, and it would have been nice to see him get a ring. Fans here have been tough on him over the years for supposedly not being clutch and then this happens... the biggest collapse in SB history. Oh well, as you mentioned, the Falcons seem to have a bright future. Thanks for the commiseration {#Cheers}

Painful LOL...

Lissen: a lot of Red Sox fans masochistically bought into "The Curse of the Bambino" BS and turned their fandom into an exercise of bitter self-flagellation. It didn't help, I think, that Irish-American culture can have that celebration of victimhood. A lot of that evaporated when the Sox, after snatching defeat from the jaws of victory for so many years, came back from 0-3 in the 2004 ALCS series to beat the hated Yankees.

Kevin Millar was a popular Sox player from that era. He once said something like "Once you step off the playing field and hit the top step of the dugout, you just wash the pain of losing away and move on." 

Falcons players will have put the pain away by the beginning of next season. Falcons fans should realize that the 2017 will be a fresh start. The players and coaches will learn from that game and likely emerge stronger for it. The Falcons will pull someday off their own "miracle" victory and build from that, I'm sure. 

The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.

(The full quote is a bit bleaker but what the hey.) 

What does not kill me, makes me stronger.

Thanks, I'm getting over it. I thought I'd post the melodramatic Bee Gees song for fun.

I have decided to forgo watching any sports on TV indefinitely. Who needs it! I'm reading books and watching movies instead.
