OT: NFL Conference Championships Open Thread
Where Teddy be at?
Do Atlanta fans still call Matt Ryan "Matty Ice"?
Stupidest nickname in the history of the NFL.
Rmember, It is Atlanta. NASCAR fans love their Natty Ice.
He only has 2 catches on the year; one last week. Pretty much a punt returner and ATL ain't be punting much today.
He had a nice fair catch in the first half!
...they may be calling him Matty INT.
Atlanta's new game plan: "guys lets make sure the other team wins"
Wow. That roughing the passer call. The NFL has become a joke.
Why all these games are ending up in the 30's and 40's.
They have gone too far slanting the rules to the offense.
Put a skirt on them Goodell, put a skirt on them. He's already getting what he wanted with 90% of plays being passes, games averaging over 60 points, and no defense.
That roughing call looked pretty paltry.
Apparently both teams bet against themselves.
...both teams are trying to throw the game to avoid SB embarrassment at the hands of the AFC Champs.
FOX should change the fade-in/fade-out to circus music for the rest of this one?
THE SECOND they lost it last season.
I chose the Lakers the second the Heat won the championship last season, and chose the Tigers to win it after they lost it last season.
Wow Douglass biffed that one terribly, fell down on an easy catch and then didnt even complete the process.
Somebody .Gif Harbaugh's reaction STAT
p.s. That was a catch (my humble opinion). Like Peirera (spelling?) said, the ball "moving" is poor terminology and always has been; the ball will most always move in some way. He kept his hand on the ball in a possession-like manner. It'd be hard to overturn if already called a catch, anyway.
harbaugh went bat shit crazy after that call!
I guess the NFL front office wants to see the Falcons in the Super Bowl? I imagine the Patriots will get the same treatment, as they have for years.
Yeah, I think the NFL wanted the 49ers (though I don't think they did anything to facilitate it). Either they get the Harbowl or they get New England trying to reach similar atmosphere. Falcons-Ravens was the NFL's "ugh" match-up.
After that review, its official - I have no idea what constitutes a catch in the NFL.
I WANT IT NOW!
I WANT CAKE NOW!!
I WANT IT NOW!!!
Harbaugh wants cake now, I don't blame him though that didn't look like a catch.
Ive seen the same plays get called a no catch all season.
NFL catch interpretations are ruining the game. Atl should have been facing a 4th down decision. Instead, the refs hand them the opportunity to win the game.
hahahah down goes Atlanta.
Turn out the lights the party's over.
Now you can have some cake Jimmy.
Would the fewer seconds and removal of the risk of a block be worth turning a 4 point game to a 2 point game?
Hope you all can find it in you to root for harbaugh cause every former and current player is rooting for him. They are the Michigan men!
Sorry. I think I've made my stance clear, but I just cannot root for an offensive system that glorifies Ohio's offensive system and makes ours look more and more archaic (because, you know, it is).
Yep. Because obviously there's only one way to play football.
I can't imagine that Brady or Mesko will be rooting hard for Harbaugh if the Patriots win their next game. Andy Moeller and Teryl Austin (though he didn't play for M) probably won't be wishing Harbaugh a lot of luck if the Ravens win, either.
Not all former/current players and "Michigan Men" are rooting for JH.
This Michigan Man is rooting for Brady and the Space Emperor.
You'd have been rooting for Atlanta as a lifelong 49er fan because he's a Michigan Man?
Thank God for Tom Brady.
I'm a Browns fan so without him I'd be forced to choose rooting for a coach who left Cleveland and became wildly successful or a team that left Cleveland and became wildly successful.
yeah. I see a lot of NE trying to iso Hernandez or Vereen on Lewis.
Who do I root for of its brady vs harbaugh?
Brady + Space Emeror > Jim Harbaugh + cake
No recruit ever says "I want to go to Michigan to play quarterback so someday I can be a Super Bowl winning coach." But they do say "I want to go and be Tom Brady and win 4* Super Bowls."
*if he's there and we're talking who should win it.
Hopefully the last of the day
