Wow, Pete, you should be embarrassed. Go back to cheating in college because, wow, there's no way Seattle should've lost that game after that comeback.

FriarReb98: Dear Seattle fans: U MAD BROS?

No. Not at all. They far exceeded our expectations and the future looks bright for a change. Sorry, but you'll have to troll another fanbase.

MBTAhole: What dumb coaching.
by Carrol for not kicking 2 first half fgs & for icing the kicker (though on reply it is clear the bryant heard the whistle and may not have missed otherwise)
by Smith for taking a timeout with 13 seconds left. Just a total, "WHY?" move

No reason not to call the timeout. Why would you save it, and force your field goal unit to run out, get set, and get the play off in 13 seconds, when they could take their time?

I don't know.

I kind of feel like I would have rather we just gone ahead and lost by 20. This is so much more heartbreaking. On the other hand... second youngest team in the league? Building up and only improving?

This isn't the Trollhawks' last hurrah.

Now then, to keep going with other teams I don't hate....

hulk hogan meat shoes: Popcorn Johnny: hulk hogan meat shoes: How does it matter? The fumble was picked up and taken in.

Can't advance it forward in the last minute or two of a game.

Well that seems silly and arbitrary.

I'm completely guessing, but maybe so teams in the Seahawks position don't try desperate/crazy intentional fumbles to confuse the other team/advance further than they otherwise could?

I don't know. Weird either way.

Plenty of time left and Seattle's missing 6 points means a FG wins it, and the Falcons kicker is solid.  Seen Matt Ryan lead 'em down the field for a GWFG too many times to celebrate yet.

rickythepenguin: CipollinaFan: How about some Santana. I bet that caught you off guard.

did you know Jerry Garcia was a huge CipollinaFan, CipollinaFan?

Yes I did,I actually started listening to QMS after reading a Grateful Dead biography.
My favorite story about them is when they sat in on a SF community meeting and started arguing very loudly about who was better Cowboys or Indians. Resulting in them being kicked out of the meeting and ending in a feud where the Dead broke into QMS's farm house to steal their weed and QMS retaliating by attempting to storm the stage of one of their concerts with antique guns tie them up and play a song with their instruments. Someone saw the guns and they were arrested.

Long unnecessary story but this game has lost my attention.

I know you guys daggered this game, but the Seahawks are trolly little assholes and I wouldn't count them out in the first half.

ox45tallboy: hulk hogan meat shoes: I really hate dome games.

Ever notice that domes are mostly in the warm-weather places like Atlanta, Dallas, and Arizona, whereas the open stadiums are in places no normal person wants to be outdoors in January like Green Bay, Chicago, and Boston?

The "better" weather dome locations are mainly because those places usually host bowl games, an occasional superbowl and some other large sporting events. Atlanta and Dallas have decent weather but they wouldnt be hosting super bowls without a dome. i know when the Georgia Dome was built the reason they built a dome was more for the other events than for the Falcons.

If they are going for it on 4th and 1 when it is 13 - 0 during the first quarter on the 10 yard line then I can't WAIT to see how bad Seattle gets the shiat kicked out of them.

They have no business this far in the playoffs.

vegaswench: zamboni: God... Atlanta fans are so stupid that they don't know to shut up when their offense is on the field.

Protip... if your quarterback, in his own stadium has to shout over the crowd noise... yer doin' it wrong.


Yeah, Gonzalez has been in the huddle and waving his arms to the crowd to shut up.  He's used to Chiefs fans, who are at least smarter than Falcons fans.

I am a Saints fan... hate the Falcons with the white hot fury of a thousand suns... but the Braves are my baseball team for 30+ years. Weird... huh?

The last Saints game I went to, I could clearly hear Brees from the stands. I could hear conversations from a section away. Part of being "The Twelfth Man" is knowing when to shut up.

@ ATL -3 SEA (46)
I think SEA outright.  still not a bliever in ATL.  Not slamming the table insisting on it, but I just think SEA can dictate the pace of the game defensively, and Ryan is no Romo but he seems to come up short in big games.  Gonna say 24-13 SEA.

@ NE -9.5 HOU (48.5)
Huge line but hard to question it.  Gona say HOU covers this somehow.
