SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

Fighting out of the good corner: a lovable underdog who has appeared in one previous Super Bowl (XXXIII) from a city that has won exactly one Championship in its history (168 previous seasons of professional sports). Its STST thread boasts a whopping 490 posts to date, but the quality is high with contributors including JudgeHoldem, TJ Eckleburg, hard2tel, nichp, and mmbt0ne.

The key players:

LEAGUE MVP: MATT RYAN





FREAK OF NATURE: JULIO JONES





2 HEADED RUNNING BACK TANDEM: DEVONTA FREEMAN and TEVIN COLEMAN





AFC NORTH CASTOFFS: MOHAMED SANU SR. and TAYLOR GABRIEL





FUTURE HEAD COACH OF COLIN KAEPERNICK: KYLE SHANAHAN



THE OWNER: HOME DEPOT ARTHUR BLANK




And out of the evil corner: a despicable franchise that has won far too many Super Bowls, games, and everything else hailing from an overly arrogant city with a despicable fanbase. Its STST Thread has a lot of bad posts by a lot of bad posters with the following boasting more individual posts than the entire Falcons thread: LetsGambool, Salva, youtalkfunny, Goodie, and Prawney. A true murderer's row of posters.

While we're on the subject of murder, let's not forget that this team employed a serial murderer at TE for multiple years, OOPS:



THE BEST COACH IN FOOTBALL: BILL BELICHICK



QB: CONVICTED CHEATER TOM BRADY



AN ARMY OF WHITE RECEIVERS: JULIAN EDELMAN, CHRIS HOGAN, DANNY AMENDOLA, et al.







THE OWNER: ROBERT KRAFT





I leave you with an oldie, but a goodie:



WHAT DO FALCONS DO?

SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

Part of me wants the pats to win just to see ROG hand another trophy to Brady and then Brady saying **** you.

If you had to click on the thread title to know which team was which, this must have been your first post in an NFL thread.

Weird that the team that admitted to a multiple year cheating operation is labeled "Good" but whatever.

Freeman and Coleman gonna cause problems.

Re: SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

WRT to Kraft, NFL politicking is a skill for an owner. Kraft got burned for a second but he made the commissioner and still sits at the big boy table. The entire league is run by billionnaires, so money isn't a factor in his influence. Kraft wanted it, and got it. He made two hires, Parcells and Belichick, got out of the way, and created a sports empire with the help of Brady. Kraft GOAT

Also didn't fully realize how statistically bad the Falcons secondary is. Under seems like burning money.

The old thread went back a ways, but we started a new one after the tdomeski fallout because we didn't want to have our thread started by a known scammer

There was some terrible poster years ago that soured me on the Falcons. Who was that?
