    Having Julio Jones alone guarantees victory once you're up 25. You play with your entire second string and Julio, and you still win. If you have even mildly competent coaching being up that much at that stage of the 3rd quarter...it's a lock! But nope. Well done, Falcons!

    Does the NFL give the MVP to James White to avoid Roger-Brady tomorrow?

    Jones couldnt be covered, they were running for 10 yds a carry, they threw to the RB out of the backfield for big gains every time they wanted and the TE were free all game.. better save those plays for next year when you are running up the scores again.. Ryan does they every game thats close it seems, and chokes it away.

    Kyle Shanahan was nobody until he got to work with Ryan and Jones. Now he's still nobody and will remain that way out in SF.

    It doesn't even matter if Jones is covered....he beat the Chargers single-handedly once by repeatedly catching balls one-handed by pinning the ball to his head to complete the catch. :)

    Atlanta choked. Great Comeback. Brady is the Lebron of the NFL.

    Bad play call on 2nd down up 8 in Matt Bryant's fg range to seal it. They don't run. Drop back get sacked and that's the ball game. Dumb play calling cost them. Good luck in San Fran Shanahan.

    Never been prouder of Patriots fans giving Goodell the Gary Bettman LOUD.

    Riding daddy's coat tails only takes you so far.

    He's junk and I'm glad the Niners hired him to continue their ineptitude.

    New England should do something real nice for Atlanta and Shanahan because they just handed this trophy to them.

    Atlanta was mindbogglingly stupid and gave them life. Once they got life, NE made all the plays though.

    After that Edelman catch, those clown fans can stop crying about Tyree's "lucky" catch though.

    Goodell got the hell out of there and Brady 4 SB MVPS. Most alltime and Roger has to give it to him. Oh this great.

    We're living in an era of alternative facts, and Atlanta just won this Super Bowl.

    Eh, everybody can jump on Shanahan and rightfully so for this game, but the guy is very, very good at his job. He knows the game and makes very good play calls usually. Don't know what happened tonight, but he's a dynamic OC.

    Bill just said more to ESPN in 10 minutes than he's said to the Boston media in 20 years. It was really very interesting to hear him talk even if I don't like him

    The script had a problem...Julio caught a pass he wasn't supposed to. Now everyone was thinking that Atlanta would run the ball burn some clock and kick a field goal. Presented a big problem for the NFL bigwigs who were communicating directly with the coaches for both teams. So...time for a little ad lib...boneheaded plays to lose some yards out of field goal range causing Atlanta to punt......no problem NE gets ball back and we are back on script culminating in NE scoring TD and another 2 point conversion. OT NE scores game over and historic comeback complete...and the gullible masses, well the gullible will just believe anything I guess. Channeling Hunter Thompson.
