    It *was* an exciting year, even if it does come down to those 2 teams, which it hasn't yet, I don't see how that makes the rest of the season not exciting, there was a lot of interesting games and plays we've never seen before this year, and I think it leaves something to really look forward to next year. As a Pats fan, I completely understand why people are sick of us, as for the other 3 teams, I have absolutely no clue what all the moaning and groaning is about...49ers haven't been superbowl-bound since '95 which is not recent at all, the Falcons last appearance was a '99 loss, and the Ravens won in '01 but nothing since.

    Either way, while every team has it's own strengths, you need a complete team to be a true playoff contender, and there were many teams that made the playoffs that were not complete and only got there because of a few talented players which is just not enough. The post-season is about good football, and I don't see how it makes the rest of the season lame. Three rookie quarterbacks, plus a QB from the niners that never started before this year, made it to the playoffs. Adrian Peterson had IMHO the greatest season an RB has ever had. If all you care about is the post-season and who makes it to the superbowl that particular year, you're doing it wrong. If my Pats lose today, and they very well could, I'm not going to say how much this season sucked, I have next year to look forward to, I'll pick one of the two teams left I want to win the SB, and I'll move on. If we can't make it to the superbowl we don't deserve to be there.

    Wow, Russell Wilsons agent went up to the Seattle staff and requested an altered contract. Which you can't do cause the NFLPA's CBA.

    He should work out more endorsements instead if his agent really wants Wilson to get more money.

    Yea I dont know many players that get a bigger contract after 1 season. If that happened we'd have so many overpaid players running around.

    49ers and Patriots for sure.

    Gotta do at some statistics for the "Boxes" you bet on for the super bowl. To pick multiple boxes in the same row/column or not...

    Gonna be a long day for Atlanta if the Niners can put six in the box and stop the run.

    Troy sounds like he has a cold.

    Wow, why the fuck did the NFL start the game at noon. I was working on my car figuring that it started at 1 like usual.

    Oh well. 9ers are getting the bottom bitch treatment.

    I love that they were playing Move Bitch by Ludacris when Turner got that first down.

    Because they know it'll be his only run over three yards all game.

    And Julio Jones is the savior of the south. Seriously, did the Niners get their defensive playbook from the Broncos?

    Yay, the 49ers are getting stomped on. 49ers could come back, but they won't win this game

    I've said all year the 9ers defense was overrated. I just figured that their offense would be able to walk over them with the read option. Obviously not.... whole 9ers bench looks phased and shocked.

    Julio Jones and Megatron are the reasons why you want tall corners in this league now, lol. They are monsters.

    Unrelated, but that old report of Wilsons agent requesting a contract alteration is "bullshit" in Gus Cook's words.

    Plus Ted Turner, Hank Aaron, Jeff Foxworthy, the man who invented Coca Cola, the magician...

    Oh I misread that as being about the Atlanta crowd. Oh well, standing by my vague reference.

    Still puzzles me why Vernon Davis doesn't get the receptions he should. Such a big play maker.

    Here's an idea Atlanta, it's a long shot, but it might just work:

    Fucking cover Vernon Davis.

    When was the last time Ryan made a play without the 49 D breathing down his neck as he makes the throw?

    Alright so they finally contain the front line, but every time the ball is snapped, Ryan seems almost instantly crowded by white shirts.

    Reading some blogs about the Falcons last week, and the Falcons O line is reaaally below average. Combine that with a decent 9ers front and yeah...

    Thats how bad the Seattle pass rush was last week, lol.

    Why do coaches do that? 52 seconds left, completed pass. You have three timeouts, take one. Don't wait 15 seconds and THEN take it. What the hell.

    Its smart clock management, and faith in your offense. Seattle was doing that in their last drive and still scored too fast, lol.

    Hell, even with that TD there is a lot of time on the clock for SF to run a hurry up.
