I don’t know who to root for in the Super Bowl. I hate Green Bay and their end zone dances and I hate Pitsburgh and their dirty ways.

Why was the second team QB slot held vacant?

And why the log jam at 2nd team safety. Sharper, Huff, Weddle, Mickell, Collins, and Griffin, all either played like crap or were hurt much of the season.

No 2nd team QB because Brady got all 50 votes. Voters only vote for one player at each position.

Smith MUST turn those boys loose!!! All those All-Pros and our offense was basically just above average. It should’ve been settin’ scoreboards on fire!

I disagree with the negative comments about Ryan. I think he’s unnecessarily been held back. Watch him during no-huddles and you can see the talent just brimming. Then they tie one-arm behind his back again for 2 quarters.

For the Birds to take that next evolutionary step toward serious contention, Matty Ice must be handed the reins… for better or worse.

The Falcons remind me of the Cowboys 13-3 season in 2007 when the Cowboys sent 13 players to the ProBowl but couldn’t win a playoff game. The ProBowl is just a popularity contest…the Falcons (just like the 2007 Cowboys) are overrated. My prediction is that the Falcons will finish 3rd in the NFC South next year…Deeper into the future, I predict Mattie Ice and Mike Smith will never win a playoff game…and the Falcons fans will continue to prove to the nation that they are fairweather fans.

I wish we had the BCS system in the NFL. It would be the Falcons and the Patriots in the superbowl. The packers and Steelers would be playing in the rose bowl… Just goes to show you how messed up the BCS is…
