Yeah, kind of like that amazing '02 Raiders offense. Or the '07 Pats. Or the '01 Rams. Or the '90 Bills. Or the '06 Bears. Or the '15 Panthers.

Top scoring offenses just consistently rock the shizzy in the Super Bowl!

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

Did you seriously just lump the 15 panthers and 06 bears in with the rest of those teams? And are you implying that having a good offense is actually a detriment to winning the super bowl?

Besides legend, who exactly is doubting Atlanta's offense? Pretty much everyone agrees Atlanta had the best offense in the league by a significant margin.

People who imply the Pats can even stop them. Also over results oriented folks who are now just realizing how good this Atlanta offense is because they made it to this game. **** the lot of you.

Do you think Atlanta is going to score every time they get the ball?

this is gonna surprise you, but somewhere between "Falcons gonna score 40" and "Pats gonna shut Falcons out" there is a middle ground where the Falcons are able to score say 24 points and still lose the game

The Mickstape podcast is criminally underrated and you should all listen to it they talk **** about the super bowl for the first half hour in the most recent episode

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

My guess is he thinks even suggesting they'll only score 24 points is an absolute affront to the falcons offense.

This.

If the Pats 2007 offense (which was better than the Falcons 2016 unit) can be held to 14 points, anything can happen in a single game.

I'd say 14 points is more likely than 44. But i'd bet on 24-27.

Nope 24 is too low, keep underestimating

Now you're catching on because the Patriots defense is virtually untested going against a Falcons team that once again played the toughest schedule in football.

Falcons 70 Patriots 27

Deal

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

I feel bad but still proud if the Falcons lose

But anyone who is a UGA and Falcons fan I feel worse for because UGA has sucked so bad lately

Pats a whole lot more likely to score every possession than the falcons. Not saying falcons wont but pats offense is really good and has a much easier matchup

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

I was in DC at one of the smithsonians the day of the Seattle - Falcons divisional game.

Of course I was repping the Falcons. Some guy in a UGA shirt passed me and said Go Falcons. Of course I said Go Falcons back but then as he was walking away I had to give him a GO Jackets state champs! holler

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

Local sports radio has been all over this boston "rivalry"

Now, we could say “I’m drunk. I’m stupid. I’m a Pats fan” is a triple redundancy, but let’s stick with objective reality. Chick Fil-A and Waffle House are better than Dunkin Donuts. OutKast is better than Aerosmith. Pork barbecue is better than clam chowder. Sweetwater is better than Sam Adams. “Atlanta,” the TV show, is better than every Wahlberg’s career output combined.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/why-atl...171912473.html

Does Boston have a place that compares to The Cheetah?

Last I checked we own the NFL's sacks leader. Last I checked we shut The Green Bay Godgers out in the first half of our playoff game. Last I checked we're an opportunistic defense. And to flip the coin last I checked the Patriots defense has played the following QB's this year:

Carson Palmer
Ryan Tannehill
Brock Osweiler
Tyrod Taylor x2
Charlie Whitehurst
Andy Dalton
Ben Roethlisberger x2
Colin Kaepernick
Ryan Fitzpatrick x2
Jared Goff
Joe Flacco
Trevor Siemian
Matt Moore

Now please tell me why I should even be remotely worried about this untested Patriots team? Schedule was and is a pathetic collection of backups and lower tiered QB's. Punch this team in the mouth and they'll crumble, guaranteed. Brady starts cussing and screaming on the sideline, I can see it all playing out now.

The Falcons are the team that lost at home to the Bucs & Chargers, and lost to the Eagles, right?

I hadnt heard the "pats have played against weak offenses all year" argument yet. I'm convinced. Falcons by 80.

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

I like the stat....

Vic Beasley sacks: 15.5
Sacks by Falcons players not named Vic Beasley: 18.5

Patriots also had 34 sacks, led by Trey Flowers with 7.

But yeah, both teams are good & should feel good.

Disgunbgud, I'm disappointed in you. Pats played Landry jones in their first matchup against Pitt. Acesfull wouldn't have missed that.
