    Matt Ryan is going to pick apart the NE Secondary, carving them up like a roast. Brady will leave the stadium feeling rather deflated.

    I pick the Pats for the following reasons:
    1. The Pats don't have any real weaknesses. They are strong on both sides of the ball. 2. Brady is arguably the best QB of all time.
    3. Record setting offenses have historically not done well in the SB or when facing a more balanced team. (ie Raiders over Redskins, Giants over Patriots, Falcons over Vikings, Giants over Packers, Seahawks over Broncos)

    The Falcons appeared to be stronger in their last conference championship game than the NE Cheaters did.

    Atlanta scored on practically every possession until the game settled down and became defensive with Atlanta up by several scores.

    NE looked strong but not as strong as Atlanta.

    NE has a slightly superior offense. The Falcons have a better defense. Historically, the better defense wins.

    NE's front seven is not that great. Their leading tacklers are all in the secondary. THAT is dangerous.

    Julio Jones will draw double coverage or he will feast. If he is double covered Mohamed Sano and Taylor Gabriel will have a great night. Freeman and Coleman are solid RBs that are also good receivers.

    The Atlanta O-Line is better than the NE D-line. The Falcons pass rush is better.

    In games against common opponents, NE out scored their foes by 7 points. Atlanta did it by 16 points.


    Atlanta has been disrespected. They have come together in the 2nd half of the season. New England is not what they once were. The Falcons win.

    It's not who I think is going to win it's who I want to win. I want Atlanta to get a Superbowl. Same way I don't want lebron to win another championship. Or Bama.

    I have no clue what's going to happen. I hope it's close then Brady and his team get punched in the mouth in the 4th. But I'm guessing it might be Brady scoring 6 and Atlanta scoring 3s. But it could totally go the other way. Atlanta might score at will and new england gets stopped a couple times and Atlanta is up ten in the 4th and Brady has the ball down 3 with 2 minutes left. Would you be scared of you were a falcons fan?

    So ne might blow them out or it could be Atlanta up 2 scores in the 4th.

    No way Atlanta is up more than 9 but new england could blow them out.

    I'm as confused as ram man right now. Can he see your threads if he blocked you? Or are we safe in here?

    Yea well the packers team was not good that week. Green bay was really good at the beginning of the year, went on a huge losing streak and then went on a winning streak to barely win the conference from us lions. Then they peaked beating Dallas.

    Greenbay is no new england. Atlanta will not blow out new england. That's wishful thinking. If Atlanta wins it'll be close
