Well, that sucked.

"I'll take 'Moments That Make Me Want to Die in a Fire' for $1,600, Alex."

The strange thing is the notion of a collapse, because this wasn't a conventional collapse in any way. Both the offense and defense played pretty well deep into the game, and the Falcons stayed true to their style and gameplan because of it. Put simply, the defense was on the field WAY too long (93 snaps!), the offense made 2 mistakes when they could only afford 1, and, most importantly, the Patriots were essentially perfect down the stretch. Literally, they did everything they needed to do and got a little help from the football gods via that miraculous catch.

The only thing I think where the Falcons maybe blew it was the play calling when they had 1st down at the Pats 22 and up 28-20. Everyone NOW says the Falcons should've simply gone run, run, run and then kick the field goal, but how many times do where hear coaches and players say you don't change your stripes during a game?

I'm gutted at HOW they lost, but at the same time I can't watch the game and deny that over the full 60+ New England deserved it. They did. Sadly.

And people wonder why we're incredibly pessimistic here. That ratio (national titles per years of pro sports) happens to be the worst among major cities, especially after Cleveland's NBA title last summer.

Wow, thought they had it in the bag after I quit watching in the 3rd quarter...ouch. And I was rooting for them too even though I'm a panthers fan. Have a habit of rooting for less successful teams.

Sounds you're tailor made to stay on the Atlanta band-wagon, then!

(5) Tennessee Titans Corey Davis Wide receiver 6'3"/209 Western Michigan

(8) Carolina Panthers Christian McCaffrey Running back 5'11"/202 Stanford

In case anyone hasn't noticed here lately, the Jacksonville Jaguars are off to one of their best starts in nearly a decade by securing the top spot in the AFC South with a current record of 7-3.

I don't doubt that the Vikings are good. But the Falcons look pretty weak.

After nearly a decade, the Jaguars have finally secured a playoff spot last night with a rather convincing win over the Texans with a score of 45-7! The way these guys are currently playing, I can definitely see them going pretty deep into the postseason.

Thanks Rhodium as it has been such an awesome season thus far with some of the locals already talking Superbowl, as the overall excitement and fan support for these guys continues to build around the city!

Falcons having one of the most snake bit year I can ever recall in the NFL. Refs didn't help today but that wasn't gonna change the outcome. Matt Ryan's line and decision making has been beyond poor.

Dear Santa, how about a late stocking stuffer for me and have the 'Aints suffer a first round exit. In the spirit of Christmas I'll leave it at that.

I really think the titanic Super Bowl choke took the starch out of the Falcons.

Interesting reading this post now that the Falcons are in the divisional round and the Panthers are at home.

Perhaps, still don't seem like the same high-flying Falcons of last year.

Jaguars stun Steelers 45-42 at Heinz Field to earn well-deserved trip to AFC title game against Patriots next Sunday!
