are all these terrible runs because they know bardy is done and don't want to tarnish his legacy?
He was 14-1 going into this game and you use a sample size of ~ 38 minutes to decide he's done? Jealously and envy get you no where . Now go get four xxxxin shine box and you are nice I'll get it autographed for u.
LOL at this game being a classic. I mean I guess you can say that because of the magnitude of the collapse, but there's simply no excuse for blowing that big of a lead.
Blowing that large of a lead in the 4th quarter should be a fireable offense for a regular season game, and it just happened in the championship. Atlanta fans should have a lot to look forward to because this simpleton Quinn is going to be your coach for the next five years just because they got to a Super Bowl by assembling the best collection of offensive skill players in the NFL. Once they are gone this team has nothing.
The Pats also coached poorly, imo. One of their TD drives took like 8 mins and all I could think was the vitrol the HC would get if it was Andy Reid doing that.
The play designs on offense for the Pats were mostly FPS, especially since the Falcons were in man coverage a lot, and they couldn't handle Edelman on a shallow cross or any outside receiver on a comeback when they were. Onside attempt was very slick tho, imo. McDaniels and Patricia both called an ass game until the fourth, when the Falcons just went to sleep.
There's not much talk about it, but who was the idiot that nearly gave the game away when he went to the ground untouched and slammed the ball down? Luckily they were running hurry up and the refs were on it quickly
