    Joe Flacco is 8-4 in the postseason, has just outdueled Brady and PManning, and has won several divisional championships over The Steelers. He's not 1-4 in the biggest games of the season. Instead of talking what might have been with Ryan instead of Long, how about instead shifting the convo to taking Long and then trading up to leapfrog above the Ravens for Flacco? After all its not like he wasn't already on everyone's radar zooming up the draftboard on the basis of the Combine?

    Whoops. Roger Goodell will have to get on the rules committee. More handcuffs on the defense. All the tinkerbell passing teams were eliminated.

    This is the most refreshing Super Bowl matchup in years. Hopefully we'll get a hard knocking 17-13 type of game, some real football.

    I say 17-13 to give me just enough room. Line is -3.5 to -4 right now. My system has San Francisco minus the points but I'll be rooting for the Ravens and Ed Reed. If the 49ers win I hope it's like today, just barely enough to cover my -3.5.

    The sportsbooks were in agony when they posted that 28-24 final into the computer. I've already heard horror stories. I can't tell you what it's like when a major game falls smack on the number. You don't win any of the big bets. The sharp guys who had San Francisco gave -3.5 and the sharp guys who had Atlanta had +4.5 or even +5. Most of the public bets pushed at -4 or +4 and only a few nitwits lost by giving -4.5 on the 49ers late.

    My Yards Per Pass Attempt Differential system is 7-2 in the playoffs versus the spread. I had 49ers -3.5 and no play on Baltimore/New England. I've detailed the plug and play criteria several times but here it is again: You take any team with at least a half yard edge over its opponent during the regular season. Only regular season stats matter. You ignore anything that happens in the playoffs, including injuries. San Francisco had by far the highest number among these four teams, at +1.9. Atlanta was +.5, New England +.3 and Baltimore +.2. I mentioned at the outset of the playoffs that New England's net passing numbers were barely above break even. Still, I was surprised they lost to an older team like Baltimore.

    Atlanta has been a fraud both times they won 13 games. Two years ago their YPPA Differential was -.2, if you can believe that, despite being the top seed. Green Bay as 6th seed had the top YPPA net of any playoff team that year.

    I must say, it took special talent to build a 20-0 lead in one home playoff game yet barely survive, then follow that up by blowing a 17-0 home playoff lead, including zero points in the second half. Matty October had happy feet from the first pass of the second half and it never stopped. I couldn't stop laughing when they chose an idiotic roll out on the 3rd and 4 play near the goal line. As I've posted many times recently, that type of play is moronic in the NFL. Work in a stats office and you'll discover that in a hurry. Too often you simply cut off half the field on yourself. The 4th down play was a congested delight and Matty October panicked, throwing it the only place he looked.

    wv get real and admit that matt ryan laid an egg in the second half of todays game...a blatant pi call on that 4th down on a 5 yard route in the 5 yard chuck zone is rediculous...like awsi said ryan had happy feet the entire second half...same thing he did last week...this time unlike last week his teammates were unable to bail him out...

    matt ryan for a veteran with as much experience as he has gave that game away today...stop calling that guy matty ice...more matty regular season

    and i don't want to hear any lame he hurt his shoulder excuses either...that 13-3 record against the like lowest strength of schedule in the league was bunk
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    I hardly hear priase for Romo unless its from former players who say he gets too much credit for the Cowboys troubles. Majority of the media destroys Romo. Many Dallas fan I run into hates him and wants him gone. Personally I think he gets too much hate as it is. Sure, maybe Skip Bayless a known Cowboy fan talks him up but a lot of people destroy Romo. Just type Tony Romo in google and look at the articles talking about Dallas needing to get trade him. Read the Dallas fans forum, or read comments on articles. People usually Bash the guy.

    lol these kind of always are expected to be a low scoring game and then the offense explodes

The guy threw for almost 300 yards and 3 TDs in one half against the best D in the NFC. The only reason the failed in the redzone on the last drive was thanks to a terrible no call on that PI on 4th down. Get ****ing real.
    Are you seriously playing the moral victory card...for THE ATLANTA FALCONS!?!

Matt Ryan is usually an afterthought of this team. His WRs get a TON of credit, almost as much as any other WRs in the league besides Calvin Johnson. You probably see Roddy White more on TV than Matt Ryan.

    Overrated and Overhyped QBs are players like

    Michael Vick
    Cam Newton
    Mark buttfumble- Media ate buttfumble so much 2 years ago. His team as a whole had success going to 2 AFC championship games but lets be realistic, they had a subpar offense and the number 1 or 2 defense in the NFL?
    Carson Palmer
    Phillip Rivers
    Jay Cutler
    Yeah I don't believe Melt Ryan is overrated, probably still underrated if anything. Joe Flacco is probably one of the most underrated QBs in the history of the NFL for what he's accomplished.

    What the Harbaughs have done is incredible, 7 for 7 in getting to the postseason with an insane regular season win/loss record between the two of them.

    Sorry your worst nightmare came true, WV!

    It appears the Football Gods hate you!

    Perhaps you're reading the wrong gospel.
