this has been the most entertaining round of NFL playoff games i can remember in years. BAL-DEN was one of the best NFL games i've seen in years period. San Francisco was entertaining as hell last night and that Seahawks comeback gone wrong was incredible. Russell Wilson is so much fun tonight
Hope the late game tonight lives up to the precedent the rest of them have set so far
As a Saints fan, I was in total bliss for about 17 football seconds. I still have faith in San Francisco finishing the job next week. I really just think between us not making the playoffs and Goodell being here for the Super Bowl, if Atlanta represents the NFC there will a lot of angry locals that will not want to be nice to the visiting dirty birds. I don't think it would get to the point where things would get dangerous, but I do hope we get egg the shiz out of the Falcons bus.
All that is to say that I think San Fran looked too good last night to lose to Atlanta, so let's hope we don't have to play nice in three weeks.
I've been a huge fan of the Seahawks' staff this year. Obviously Carroll and Bradley, but even Bevell's playcalling really improved as the year went on. Today, the loss is on them. No idea why Carroll and Bevell didn't play for a field goal either time they were in the red zone in the first half. Maybe hubris? The red zone FGs by Hauschka last weekend were clutch, it seems they forgot that bit. Not sure why Bevell waited until the second half to start using the zone read with any regularity.
Finally, and most perplexing, I can't fathom why Bradley switched them to a PREVENT defense at the end. The Falcons only needed to get in FG range, prevent wasn't going to help. Seattle's D did a great job in the second half playing their usual man coverage, to switch it up at the end was indefensible. Also, the lack of Chris Clemons was really apparent, especially in the last ATL series, where Seattle couldn't get any pressure on Ryan.
Sadly for Falcons fans, with Seattle playing that poorly for 2/3 of the game, they should have won by at least two touchdowns. Much as I'm loathe to see it, I think the 49ers roll next week.
I liked Seattle going for it on 4th and 1 in the Red Zone earlier in the first half when it was 13-0, but not to give the ball to Lynch on either 3rd or 4th and 1 was unbelievable.
not gloating. atlanta played like shiz the second half but luckily matt ryan was able to pull off another miracle drive to set bryant up. bosher was trying his hardest to hand the game over with those weak ass punts and the botched squib at the end.
SF will be a tough game and hopefully the Falcons will show up for more than just the 1st half.
