    GO DIRTY BIRDS!!!!!!!!!!

  2. ClodHopper Says:

    Go Pats!!!

  3. Joeypoppems Says:

    Meh, I guess I will “cheer” for the Pats. Couldnt care any less about this matchup honestly lol

  4. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Given that the losing team also often has a bad year the following season, i will be rooting for the pats

  5. cmurda Says:

    I don’t care about the whole “root for your Division” crap. Last year I rooted against Panthers. This year I will root against the Falcons. Not for the Patriots but rather against the Falcons.

  6. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Really hoping that Matt Ryan continues a long tradition of choking away big games.

  7. Blackmagic00 Says:

    Go Pats!

  8. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Well I’m the Lone Ranger here eh. Teams that I loathe…Pats…Yankees..Cowboys in that order….I’m not much of a hater…only three teams but the Pats top the list.

    I’m tired of old light bulb head…Brady without a helmet is scary…more head above his eyebrows than beneath…he could star in a remake of young Frankenstein paint on some stitches and he’s ready to go.

    And yeah I’m different about the division…I always root for our Division…then our Conference….I HATE IT WHEN AFC teams win…especially with the great stone face and light bulb head.

  9. Couch Fan Says:

    I will never root for divisional foes. GO PATS!!!

  10. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I agree, Couch. I guarantee you that no Jets fans are rooting for the Patriots. Why should we root for the Falcons?

  11. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Go Pats. They are my 2nd most hated team in the league (behind the packers) but I just can’t bring myself to root for the dirty turds. I hope it’s a blow out

  12. ptwalk Says:

    I believe both defenses will show up and slow these offenses down. Atl will win 20 to 17.

  13. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Go Pats. There is only one team in this division I want winning a superbowl…the Buccaneers!

  14. JonBuc Says:

    I don’t always agree with Bonzi…but when I do…it’s about the demise of a hated divisonal foe. Go Pats!

  15. Aristotle Says:

    Go Falcon! Cheer on our fellow division brothers

  16. SB Says:

    I am rooting for the Falcons for several reasons. One of them is that Matt Ryan is a Class Act and I told naysayers when he came out of BC that they were wrong. One is cause we beat the Birds once this yr and it is always cool to say your team beat the SB team. Another is because I want the SB Winner in our Division. Go Falcons!!!

  17. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Ptwalk you do realize the birds are starting three rookie right??? Not a good mix for facing Brady. If the birds can settle down early they’ll have a chance but if they n@$ up early like the cats did last year this will be over early.

  18. Buccfan37 Says:

    A Falcons win will be great. Strong NFC South in the league, I’m liking it already. How can I possibly root for an AFC team, I can’t.

  19. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Actually I think its 4 rookie..

  20. Buccfan37 Says:

    St Pete… Brady would make a good Herman Munster for sure.

  21. Buccfan37 Says:

    Positive thoughts: IF the Falcons can blow out the Pats, then the Pats run is over. Go Falcons

  22. Artemis Rand Says:

    Falcons 32, Patriots 23

    Matt Ryan, MVP

  23. Artemis Rand Says:

    Oh BTW, I see the HOF is now the Hall of very good.

    Jason Taylor, HOF ?

    WTF ?

    OK, Morten Anderson deserved to go but that guy ?

  24. Artemis Rand Says:

    So no John Lynch in the HOF ?

    I smell a political bias here much like with Curt Schilling. Lynch is a big time Trump supporter.

  25. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Cheer on the NFC south! Like SEC fans do for their conference.

  26. firethecannons Says:

    Super proud of the NFC south!!!!! Go Falcons!!!!!!!!!!
    Remember Kwon’s dominant performance 2015–He chased Julio down, stopped him, took the ball out of his hands, ran back with it–damn–one of the best plays in nfl I ever seen!

  27. firethecannons Says:

    Barbara Bush looks better than she did when hubbie was the pres!

  28. Buc Neckid Says:

    Was kinda hoping President Bush would have parachuted in for the Coin Toss

  29. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Root for an NFC South team other than the Bucs? Only if it helps us make the playoffs. Other than that, no way. Are Jets fans happy to see NE win? Hell no! Our division winning the SB doesn’t help the Bucs. It just starts the talk even more about when we’ll win with Winston. No thanks. This ain’t college, where a conference being good will help with recruiting. The only South team I want to see win is us, baby! Down with the hated Falcons!

  30. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Apparently, Ford didn’t care about the guy on the ski lift..

  31. Buc Neckid Says:

    Never give it Blount on Short Yards
    I though Belichik was a Genius???

  32. Tbbucs3 Says:

    How bout that for all you Devonte Freeman haters

  33. Buc Neckid Says:

    Dirty Dirty Birds
    Two hits to the head already
    no flags

  34. Artemis Rand Says:

    Watch Adrian Clayborn go off and get three sacks and MVP tonight, lol…

  35. Artemis Rand Says:

    At least the refs are letting them play. No ticky tack BS…

  36. Artemis Rand Says:

    how did Brady not fumble that !?

  37. Artemis Rand Says:

    So far, this game reminds me a lot of SB 37. Same type of tempo and feel…

  38. Buc Neckid Says:

    but creepy
    Skittles Commercial

  39. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Clayborn was never really a dud for the Bucs like Bowers was. Not saying we should’ve kept him either cause he doesn’t fit our scheme, he seems like a good 3-4 DE.

  40. Buc Neckid Says:

    Defense Wins Championships
    Whose will be better tonight?

  41. SB Says:

    Two of those Rookies are from Florida, Keanu Neal, and Brian Poole. The other is from LSU who Kwon wanted us to draft, Dione Jones from LSU.

  42. SB Says:

    And There is Dion Jones with a Strip Fumble

  43. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    God we need a freeman

  44. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I am freaking loving this. The look on lightbulb’s head is awesome.

    Get that weak AFC crap outta here!!!!

    Imagine if we get Dalvin!!! That’s Devonta with enough speed to have taken the first run to the house…props to Devonta but Dalvin is faster.

  45. SB Says:

    No knock on Dalvin whatsoever but there is ZEEEERRRROOO possibility that he is 3x Freeman.

  46. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Those FSU RBs..

  47. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    3X? He is most definitely faster…not 3X anything though.

  48. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Stick to the gators SB. Dalvin is 3x Freeman. That ain’t even a debate.

  49. SB Says:

    Those FSU RBs..

  50. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I watched every snap of both players while in school. He is 3x Freeman.

  51. SB Says:

    Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:
    February 5th, 2017 at 7:20 pm
    Stick to the gators SB. Dalvin is 3x Freeman. That ain’t even a debate.
    C’mon Bro…he may be better, Prolly is, 3x though? Not a snowballs chance in Hell

  52. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Did we really beat these guys on opening day

  53. Stpetebucsfan Says:


  54. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We gonna be in this game next year. I feel it

  55. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I hope you guys are watching JJ in the freaking Super Bowl. Don’t come here next year and rank on VHG or Grimes for not being able to shut him down.

  56. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    @ st Pete
    Yeah and we’ve won 3 out of the last 4 against them

  57. SB Says:

    At FSU FReeman had 31 rush TDs and 1 Rec. TD.
    Cook had 46 Rush and 2 TD.
    Not even a 50% increase.

  58. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I feel ya bro. If we score a couple of important pieces in FA and draft well…watch out!! Where is the SB next year?

  59. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  60. SB Says:

    Check that. If you throw in the one more TD catch then it is 50,

  61. SB Says:

    I could fly to Minnesota. I am used to the cold now.

  62. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    3x SB one is d@$# good. The other is spacial.

  63. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Let’s do a JBF pact tonight guys. If we make it next year we get Joe to charter a flight for all we JBF guys to go as a group!

  64. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This is a little depressing. On one hand I’m happy that the patriots are getting whooped, but I really don’t want the fail clowns to win a SB

  65. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I live in Wisconsin. I could drive to Minnesota lol

  66. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Legarrette who?

  67. MadMax Says:

    Im loving this!!! Go dirty birds!!!

  68. Tbbucs3 Says:

    The Falcons of recent have a top 10 defense minus the defensive holds

  69. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Does any defense in the NFC South cover TE’s…not us and not the Falcons

  70. MadMax Says:

    OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Ball game boys. Smh

  72. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    OMG This game could not be going any better. Whiny Brady…love it!!!

  73. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    @ max
    How can u in ur right mind root for a division rival to win the super bowl? Especially since they don’t have one yet and we do?

  74. MadMax Says:

    Na….entire 2nd half left…..but I hope so ME Goat

  75. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Pete you see the way those bird DTs are playing??? The aggression the attitude.. That’s the chip me and 87 are talking about.

  76. MadMax Says:

    Well, if you dont want them to win, thats fine.

    Me, I grew up with the Falcons as the locals. Then the Panthers came along after I was a Bucs fan….never could get behind them and hate a lot of their fans. Plus NFC South repping baby!

  77. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Idk. I just can’t do it

  78. Buccfan37 Says:

    LMAO, the birds are soaring. The refs are trying to to close the scoring gap.

  79. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Yeah I see it NOSBOS…we’ve played with that before…I see it coming with us…

    IF the Falcons win it’s a feather in our caps. We will be one of the five teams able to beat them…next year we get to test ourselves against the defending SB champions…what’s not to like about that? In fact I hope the rout continues and Atlanta humiliates the Pats and becomes the total darling of the league…more motivation for our guys.

  80. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Its why I want Campbell more than JPP. I’ll take less stats from a guy that plays with none stop attitude and aggression.

  81. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    I hope you’re right and Dalvin falls to us one way or another. We gotta have Dalvin to set up #3’s great hard fakes on play action…and Dalvin out of the backfield another target for #3.

  82. AP Says:

    Migos new album culture was amazing. I’m rooting for the Falcons just for that #riseup

  83. SB Says:

    Patriots 42 plays, Falcons 19. Pats ded

  84. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs fans would enjoy a SB winner on our schedule. To be the best you have to play the best and beat them. A division mate, it does not get any better than this. Go NFC South Falcons. Put the Pats away in the 2nd half.

  85. Buccfan37 Says:

    Take that President Trump.

  86. MadMax Says:

    the fk you bringing Trump into this for lol

    Take a break already gddam

  87. cmurda Says:

    I definitely can’t find it in myself to pull for the Falcons but it certainly isn’t hurting my feelings watching Brady have a miserable game and the Pats getting steamrolled.

  88. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    That playaction gone be sick wit Dalvin in the backfield Pete. Sick. SB Big bro four quarters.

  89. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    This ain’t college call kids!! I would never root for our rivals!!!

  90. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Never have I seen Brady miss so many passes and now in the 2nd half, nobody can catch a pass. Your now seeing what happens when you don;t have a true #1 or true #2 WR. This is why we need to get that true #2 WR.

  91. orlbucfan Says:

    Rooting for the Dixie Chicks cos:
    ***Sick of Belicheat
    ***Brady is long in the tooth–yawnnnnnn
    ***NFC South Is no cupcake and guess who won the first SB?? MIGHTY BUCS!!
    ***Raheem Morris is getting his just due
    ***Go Bucs!! What more can I say??

  92. Buccfan37 Says:

    MadMax.. mad much? President Trump happens to be a big fan of Brady DUH.

  93. MadMax Says:

    Oh, I didnt know lol.

    and BOOM another TD!!! 😀

  94. MadMax Says:

    Game is OVER!!!

    GJ Falcons!

  95. cmurda Says:

    Yeah because Brady hasn’t accomplished anything in his career. This will define him and then we draw a line to Trump because Brady supported Trump. Please. Forget about politics right now and enjoy the sad look on Belicheat’s face.

  96. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Dirk koetter and mike smith better use this as motivation why falcons kicked them out

  97. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    Can I add another reason..the Pats already have one more SB than they should gift wrapped by Pete Carroll.

    Two downs left..time on the clock to run two plays…I get the pass but NOT that play into the teeth of the Pat D…he could have rolled Wilson right and put incredible pressure on the couple of guys left for the Pats..Wilson either walks in or tosses the ball to a receiver or..if the play is not there Wilson simply throws it away,.,.stops the clock and then go Beast mode, One of the Pats SB’s was totally gift wrapped…Brady didn’t win that one…Pete Carroll lost it!!!

  98. orlbucfan Says:

    Brady supports tRump? He’s definitely getting senile. Now, ain’t this a football blog or not??!!

  99. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    The more I watch this game the more I want Dalvin!!!

  100. MadMax Says:

    And Martellus Bennett doesnt have to worry about snubbing the white house when he was snubbed by his brady! HAH!

  101. Rod Munch Says:

    Matt Ryan is 1-3 versus Winston.

    Winston > Brady.

  102. Rod Munch Says:

    Winston 46 of 69 for 542 yards, 7 TDs and 1 INTs versus Atlanta this year.


  103. orlbucfan Says:

    @Stpete: I agree with you about the Seahawks getting ripped off in that SB. But, they won one anyway. I’m not saying anything about who we should draft cos I know less than zero about the college players. NFC SOUTH has 3 SB champs. YEAH!! 🙂 Stinkcats will eventually win one.

  104. MadMax Says:

    StPete, your thoughts about Kamara with our 2nd.

  105. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    Haven’t seen enough of him to be honest. But I don’t want to wait until the second…I want a game breaker in the first…Dalvin…and then in the 2nd…Curtis Samuels…sign Jackson or Stills and watch out for our O…we could easily keep up with Atlanta…games might be 56-48 against the Falcons. LMAO.

  106. R.O. Says:

    OMG.. Gostkowski sucks!! He missed an xtra PT on the biggest stage of the year. They should cut him….. (sarcasm) for all you who complain about Aguayo.

  107. Rod Munch Says:

    You’re right RO! If Gostkowski doesn’t miss that kick the Pats are winning this game! They should cut him right now – ANYONE on the team could do better!!!!

  108. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    It’s even worse…it’s his FIFTH miss of the year.

  109. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I just hope Brady doesn’t get hot!!! I’ll be curious to see who Quinn plays the 4th…I hope he doesn’t go all soft coverage. I really hope they get a strong rush if they all drop back into coverage and give Brady time he’ll pick them apart.

    If he continues to play poorly we might start much time does Tom have left? Nobody can force Tom to retire…except maybe for Belichek.

    But if he stumbles next year the whispers will get louder.

  110. Tampa Tony Says:

    Brady needs some brothers at receiver


  111. R.O. Says:

    Yes I know it’s his 5th miss. He $ucks!!! I don’t know how he made the team.

  112. Tampa Tony Says:

    What a throw to bennett

  113. USFBUC Says:

    Man watching the Falcons tonight I have to say they have done a great job in recent drafts.

  114. Rod Munch Says:

    Patroits are the stupidest team in NFL history – they drafted Gostkowski in the 4th round!!! You could have picked up a 4th string safety with that pick!

  115. DB55 Says:

    Now that’s how you play DT!!!!!!

  116. MadMax Says:

    See that?!? SACKS GALORE!

    DE with our first please!

  117. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I like your snark Rod.

  118. cmurda Says:

    Yeah DB. That was some serious skills. That’s how you take over a game.

  119. orlbucfan Says:

    Man, next season will be a barnburner in the NFC South. 3, count ’em, 3 SB champs!!

  120. ndog Says:

    So for those of you wanting to know what those of us that want McCoy to do more. Please see those last two plays from a no name DT from Atlanta. McCoy has never done that this dude just did it in the Superbowl!

  121. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    We have Ayers and Noah is going to blow up next year. He played reasonably well this year with one arm. I concede depth is an issue but what has propelled Atlanta to this score….an excellent RB…actually TWO good RB’s…we have ONE..maybe.

  122. R.O. Says:

    OMG.. we should trade our next 5 1st rd picks for Grady Jackson. He has to be the greasy DT in the history of the MFL.

  123. R.O. Says:

    Greatest** although he could be the greasiest also.

  124. MadMax Says:

    Good point SP….and Im not above drafting RB if thats the direction they feel the need to go. Its just pretty deep in RB and WR. The trenches are the most battles and where I want our 1st.

  125. orlbucfan Says:

    @ndog, please give the GMC dissing a break. We split with the Chicks this past season. Patriots look worse than Cleveland right now.

  126. Rod Munch Says:

    Matty Choke coming through!

  127. Rod Munch Says:

    Get the game close and watch Matty crumble. Winston 3-1 versus Ryan – with 2 of those being 4th quarter comebacks.

  128. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I certainly take your point Max you can never be too strong in the trenches.

    I guess for me it comes down to what can you imagine from the current roster even if everything worked out OK.

    So the OL has question marks…Sweezy’s health…need upgrade at Benenoch ready to play…while I see the questions it’s not impossible to see Marpet at Center flanked by Pamphile and Sweezy with Smith and Benenoch at the other tackle.

    Same for our DL…lots of questions…but if Ayers, GMC, and Noah could stay healthy…if Jack Smith…I get that’s a lot of IFS.

    But our backfield…not even any IF’s..Quizz is a nice back but he’s not “that guy”. Meanwhile we have a QB who is killer off play action fakes but who will bite with our lame RB lineup.

    But I get your point…you’re probably in the majority here who believe there are so many RB’s that we can wait. Time will tell.

  129. R.O. Says:

    OMG Rod.. Ryan has to be the worst QB in the history of SBs.. because he got hit form the blind side and fumbled. Atl should cut him the moment this game is over… don’t even wait until March.

  130. Artemis Rand Says:

    Am I the only one to see many parallels between this one and our SB ?

    Jump out to big lead, other team makes a run late but still out of reach (ok, not right now, but you get the point.).

    The feel and tempo of this game is eerily similar to ours in 2003.

  131. Rod Munch Says:

    RO he held the ball on 3rd and 1 for like 15 seconds, you have to have some pocket awareness. That drive puts the game away, instead Matty Choke, chokes. Lets see what happens, this Pats def has been awful.

  132. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    You guys want to know why NOSBOS is Dalvin’s agent…Dalvin takes that last catch to the house…that’s the difference…and we NEED a difference maker.

  133. Rod Munch Says:

    Artemis – You do know the Bucs won by 27 right? It wasn’t a one game with 5 minutes left.

  134. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Dang…I was just typing…its Julio time…he’s the man!!! A difference maker.
    We have ONE in ME13 and that’s it. We are incredibly slow. We need to get a lot faster on offense.

  135. MadMax Says:

    Thanks St Pete! I value your opinion a lot. You and LUV.

  136. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, Julio is the best in the game – he just is. Perhaps Evans will overtake him in a few years, but Julio is just amazing.

  137. orlbucfan Says:

    I’ve been watching for Raheem on the Atlanta sideline but haven’t seen him. He up in the booth?

  138. R.O. Says:

    Ryan $ucks… because You judge a player on 1 play. You r right Rod… you know exactly how to evaluate players.

  139. MadMax Says:

    My gosh what a connection with Ryan to Jones…dam!

  140. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Now it’s looking like our ole buddy Matt might decide this game.

    Not Ryan but Bryant.

  141. Rod Munch Says:

    Matt Bryant will 100% make this kick, best kicker ever!

  142. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    I saw him in the first half in Quinn’s ear.

    Man that’s a Buc play…hold at the very worst time possible,

  143. Rod Munch Says:

    Matt Bryant can make it from here, kick the ball – he made 60+ yarders in Tampa!

  144. Tbbucs3 Says:

    How do you take a sack in that situation!?

  145. MadMax Says:

    Well, Ive been telling everyone I had a feeling it will come down to Bryants leg in the last seconds……could I be right?

  146. orlbucfan Says:

    Chicks lose this one….Arthur Blank will have a stroke. Who can blame him? Gawd, Pats look as bad as Cleveland throughout most of this ballgame.

  147. Tampa Tony Says:

    How does ATL not run the ball after the jones catch?

  148. Tampa Tony Says:

    OT please!!!!

  149. MadMax Says:

    Holy jit what a play!!! I thought it hit the ground dam!

  150. cmurda Says:

    Wow Edelman. Holy Moly

  151. Tampa Tony Says:

    What a catch

  152. Rod Munch Says:

    If that was Bert Emanuel it wouldn’t be a catch.

  153. Tampa Tony Says:

    Can’t give ATL too much time though…

  154. Rod Munch Says:

    Let’s hear it for Matty Choke turning the ball over, taking a huge sack and making this a game!

  155. I'm tired and 87 is right! Says:

    Haha Rod I was thinking the same thing. If it wasn’t for that play against the Rams this game would be over.

  156. orlbucfan Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    February 5th, 2017 at 10:00 pm
    If that was Bert Emanuel it wouldn’t be a catch.
    Man, if that ain’t the truth!! Still Bucs beat the daylights outta Oakland in the SB.

  157. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, too much time even if they get the 2pt conversion.

  158. cmurda Says:

    Holy crap. This is great.

  159. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey can the Falcons pump some MVP chants into the stadium to pump up Ryan?

  160. MadMax Says:

    What I predicted….close game, and Bryants leg

    And Falcons win.

  161. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pick 6 game over????

  162. Rod Munch Says:

    Matty Choke chucking up a ball that was nearly intercepted! Way to go!

  163. Artemis Rand Says:

    If Brady pulls this off then screw it – he IS the greatest QB of all time.

    Better than Joe Montana, Peyton Manning, all of them…

  164. Rod Munch Says:

    Better, if Matty Choke loses this game he gets back his well deserved nickname!

  165. Buc Neckid Says:


  166. Artemis Rand Says:

    Can you imagine being a Falcons fan right now ?

    Can you imagine what it would be like if they lose ?

    My God. I remember being on pins and needles when the Raiders cut it to 13 points in the 4th.

    I can only imagine how they feel right now…especially if they lose…

  167. Artemis Rand Says:

    That was a damn good fake!

    Imagine if they had pulled it off!

  168. Rod Munch Says:

    Artemis – Hopefully it ends in mass suicide.

  169. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    First OT super bowl EVER

  170. Artemis Rand Says:

    I just want all of the celebrities to kill themselves TBH.

  171. Artemis Rand Says:

    This makes me even more happy we beat the Raiders 48-21 instead of this pins and needles edge of the seat BS…

  172. Rod Munch Says:

    Artemis – I’ll take that outcome with celebs.

  173. MadMax Says:

    ^ Me too!!!!

  174. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I will never EVER say this again in my life, but GO BRADY!!!!!

  175. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Is it TD wins the game? Or do both get a possession?

  176. Buccfan37 Says:

    The collapse by Atlanta is unbelievable. Monumental choke.

  177. Artemis Rand Says:

    Tom Brady deserves to be the MVP even if the Falcons end up winning.

  178. Artemis Rand Says:

    TD wins the game. same as regular season…

  179. Rod Munch Says:

    I didn’t think I cared who won this game – but my gawd do I want Atlanta to lose just so we can laugh at those Falcon fans and call Ryan a choke artist.

  180. Artemis Rand Says:

    I just want the celebrities to eat it. Celebrated too early and thought it was a mere formality.

    Just like election night!!!

  181. Rod Munch Says:



  182. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  183. cmurda Says:

    God I hate the Patriots but still happy

  184. Artemis Rand Says:



  185. Rod Munch Says:

    Find a Falcons fan, if there really are any, and give them a hug them, and while doing so slip them a cyanide pill.

  186. MadMax Says:

    LOL Rod….close but good game.

  187. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The GOAT ladies and gentlemen

  188. Rod Munch Says:

    Matty Ice.


  189. Artemis Rand Says:

    Mark my words: The Falcons are a 6-10 team next year (at best).

    This will FOREVER haunt them!

    This is WORSE than the Drive or the Fumble.

    This will destroy the franchise!

    The division is ours for the taking…

    Yeah, I am sick of Brady and yeah, I go for division pride but dammit – I hate liberals and I ALWAYS love winning against them.

  190. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Tom Brady and bill belichick are the greatest of all time. Respect the champ

  191. Blackmagic00 Says:

    We just watched history. First ever ot superbowl and the dirty azz birds lost from 28-3 up. Heck ya!!!!!!

  192. lurker Says:

    unlike the election, this will not haunt our country. #so-called president

  193. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I can’t think a better way for the Falcons to fall short!

  194. BucFan20 Says:

    Good game FALCONEERS!!!!

  195. ATrain Says:

    If you don’t think the NFL want them to win your crazy.

    Look at the money The NFL will make with Brady win..

    A Lot of missed calls.

    Matt s arm was coming forward.
    Missed face mask.
    Several holding calls missed that would change this game

  196. LovieBall Says:

    Falcons chocking hard than in 2015.

  197. Buc1987 Says:


  198. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    Well Joe I truly believe the NFL is fixed and I am burning all my bucs jerseys,hats ,ect. And I am done wasting my Sundays on this trash and garbage sites like this one! What a waste of time and life! The nfl has turned into complete trash and is obviously fixed! Just look at all the times they have fuc**ed the bucs and other teams with terrible calls favoring teams like the Patriots!

  199. Rod Munch Says:

    Had it 31-27 with NE winning before the game, never had a doubt that Matty would choke and he came through!

  200. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Yes! Hopefully this sends the Falcons on a Panthers-like fall! Go Bucs!

  201. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    FailClowns do it again! Natty Ice chokes the big one! Sweet relief hallelujah praise the Lord!

  202. Rod Munch Says:

    Why are Falcons fans here, shouldn’t you guys be slitting your wrists? Have some pride! #RiseUp

  203. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Woooohooooo Yay!! Matty deiced..yeah mother puckers!! Don’t win the MVP the night before!! LOL!!!!!

  204. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    ATrain Says
    “Matt s arm was coming forward.”

    NO it wasn’t. Ball came loose as he stopped pulling it back.

    And there were just as many missed calls for the Falcons.

  205. Buc1987 Says:

    Buccaneer Scotty…you can believe it man.

    The only thing I don’t get is why the NFL would do all this for one team.

    I know refs look the other way when it comes to the Pats. Benn complaining about them for years when it comes to the Pats. It DOES look rigged.

  206. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    @buc fan 20
    That was stupid.

  207. cmurda Says:

    No A Train. No sir. This game was called well. They even got the ridiculous Edelman catch right. This was flat out greatness at Qb and the best coach of all-time overcoming the first half in which they got dominated. I can’t stand Pats but gotta give respect when it’s due and it’s due.

  208. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol A train
    Don’t be salty. Tom is the GOAT

  209. Buc1987 Says:

    I told my wife during the 2nd qtr that if the Falcons win they will stumble next year so look out. I think they just blew their shot.

  210. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Slot of grown men kissing the same spot on that trophy lol

  211. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    NFL isn’t rigged, lol.

  212. BucFan20 Says:

    No goat. That was just like watching the BUCS. Have a big lead and give the game way!!! They learn well!!

  213. Buc1987 Says:

    No HOLDING calls on the Pats? Was there one at all during the game? Or are they just THAT disciplined?

    The refs look the other way.

    Good game though…. I guess.

  214. K2 Says:

    They will have trouble recovering from this loss. Look what it did to Carolina…and this is much worse.

  215. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I don’t believe it’s rigged. Why would the NFL rig it so Goodell has to hand Brady the trophy?

  216. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That EXACTLY why it was stupid. Why rag on ur “so called” team?

  217. ATrain Says:

    Bonsai. I realize you will never admit your wrong but Matt’s arm had started forward..I have DVR you should try it.

    The NFL set this up..
    No team has come back from more than 10 points down..
    Hell they said that 50 times.

    NFL is making millions right now because Ton won his 5th.

    If ATL won think of all the list money to the NFL.

  218. Jerry Says:

    Falcons are the biggest chokers in Super Bowl history.


  219. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh man, I’m so happy! I really didn’t think I cared who won – and had the Pats just blown out the Falcons I don’t think I would have cared, but wow, this is the best, the Falcons fans think they have it in the bag, 6 mins to go, up by 2 scores, just have to run the ball and not have Matty Ice take some huge sacks and turn the ball over and… LOL!

    I’m so happy right now, I had no idea I’d be this happy at having the Pats win!

  220. Buc1987 Says:

    So I guess the Pats are just THAT disciplined….

  221. Gencoimports Says:

    The Falcons will be in last place in the NFC South next year.

    Outstanding comeback by the Pats, but that said, what a choke job for the Falcons.

  222. ATrain Says:

    Even Bradshaw said it before the game. I will hand you the trophy

  223. Eric Says:

    Trump right again!

    I’m already tired of all the winning!

  224. Joeypoppems Says:

    Yea that was definitely the best outcome that couldve happened. Thrilled to see the Falcons choke it away lmao

  225. Rod Munch Says:

    Pats scored 31 straight points to close out the game!

    Matty Choke #GCOAT!

  226. tdtb2015 Says:

    Next year, Winston will not collapse as Matty Ice did today in the 4th qtr.

    Disappointed….no. I’m highly disappointed.

    As simple as that.

  227. Buc1987 Says:

    Oooooooh boy you’ve never seen a bigger sh-talker at Bucs games than me.

    I’m going to put those Atl fans through HELL!

  228. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    87 just feel blessed that the Falcons are now the biggest chokers in SuperBowl history. I really dont get how anyonr is upset about the Failclowns choking, its what hey do. And a loss like this will be devastating to Natty Ice’s psyche. Dude prolly wont sleep for a week.

    Pretty sure the only way I could be happier right now would be of the Bucs had just won the Bowl. This is truly a Joyous occasion for me.

  229. Tbbucs3 Says:

    How do the Falcons bounce back from this?? Bucs and Saints now on the top of the NFC!!

  230. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Please ignore those typos, this phone sucks.

  231. Artemis Rand Says:

    Attention Atlanta Falcons:

    Please see MR. Derrick Brooks if you ever need to be shown on how to close out the super bowl.

  232. Eric Says:

    All Atlanta had to do was run the ball and kick a field goal for 11 point lead.

  233. Gencoimports Says:

    plus the Panthers will be back. The Falcons will be dead last next year. This choke will hurt them more than what happened to the Panthers.

  234. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Atrain, the ball was loose when his arm went forward. Instead of saying you have a dvr, i suggest you actually use it to see. In slow motion.

    You are right, i won’t admit i am wrong, ecause I’m NOT!

  235. captjimbo Says:

    Who said Brady needs some brothers for receivers? Maybe Winston needs some more white dudes as receivers!

  236. Artemis Rand Says:

    hey liberals – you LOSE again!!!


  237. James Walker Says:

    Worst Superbowl ever.

  238. Tampa Tony Says:

    Fingers crossed for a super bowl hangover for ATL

    Go Bucs!!!!

  239. Buc1987 Says:

    Artemis…lol leave the libs alone….are they now suffering enough?

    My answer of course is….NOPE!


    Every day I wake up with a smile knowing somewhere close to me is a lib waking up all pissed off.

  240. Tampa Tony Says:

    @captjimbo- I did as a jab at the fans who make excuse after excuse for Winston who they feel needs 4 pro bowlers to haul in his inaccurate throws rather than admit he has mechanic issues

  241. Buc1987 Says:

    Yah Tony that’s what most on here seem to believe. I’m in that crowd too. I think they just blew their last shot for awhile.

  242. Buc1987 Says:

    Tampa Tony….quite often tonight…Brady threw many inaccurate throws. Still one the game though.

    Perhaps you missed those throws?

  243. SB Says:

    I am having a Really Really hard time processing what I just witnessed……………….I mean HOW many records were broken in Atlanta’s Monumental Choke job?
    Only 9pm here. I need another beer.

  244. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Winston will be fine. Stop acting like he’s a 5 year veteran.

  245. Jerry Says:

    You got to win when you have the chance. You never know when you will ever get back to the Super Bowl.

    This is a game that the Falcons entire franchise will be haunted by for years and years. You blow a 25 point lead and let the other team score 31 unanswered points? In the Super Bowl? Ouch.

  246. Tampa Tony Says:

    1987- the joke went over your head. I posted that when Brady was overthrowing his small white wideouts.

  247. Buc1987 Says:

    Thanks for the jab btw. I felt much worst than say an ant bite.

    Ain’t nobody ever going BE Brady. The point is that even the greatest of all time can throw bad balls.

    Some that are concerned about Winston act as if it happens all the time and no other QB overthrows WR’s from time to time.

    It’s not a defense, I’m just not worried about his “mechanics” like some of you are.

  248. Gencoimports Says:

    The Falcons defense got rope-a-doped. That pick 6 actually worked in the Pats favor.

  249. Buc1987 Says:

    Tony…I didn’t bother to scroll up and read the joke. Just saw the name and said go figure.

  250. captjimbo Says:

    No problems Tony I was just entertaining myself. That may be the worst game I’ve seen Brady have and he still throws for over 400 yards.

  251. Buccfan37 Says:

    I did not watch the game, listened on the radio. I can’t stand watching the Pats. But by listening I could hear the refs clearly were in NE’s pocket. Another crappy Stupor Bowl.

  252. Buc1987 Says:

    I’m about as drunk as monkey right now and it’s been a bitch with this keyboard thingy that I can barely see and I keep hitting backspace to correct over and over again.

    Not a great night for typing, but I’m a trooper.

  253. Pickgrin Says:

    I’m just glad it turned into a good game at the end instead of the blowout it was looking like. It was strange to find myself rooting for the Pats to come back. I freaking hate the Patriots. Just got caught up in the moment I guess… LOL

    Congrats to Brady and Belicheat. Brady has pretty much sealed the greatest QB of all time claim with this 5th SB victory – and in such dramatic come from behind fashion. Dude had an unbelievable season for a 39 y.o. NFL player.

    So Congratulations are due to the Patriots – begrudging as they may be….

  254. SB Says:

    Hey 87

  255. Buc1987 Says:

    captjimbo…saw your post earlier and laughed.

    I just don’t like Tony. lol 🙂

  256. Rod Munch Says:

    Buc1987 – For trash talking I’d like to see how you compared to the late-90s me… I had the huge huge benefit of political correctness not being a thing and having zero fear of anything since there wasn’t cameras anywhere. At the old stadium in it’s last year they had this section called the 105 or something and season tickets, for the whole year, were like 105 – or maybe it was the Buc-20 section and it was $120, I forget, but man – it was this one small section on the visitor’s side of the field and we’d be completely surrounded by visitors fans – I mean completely. The cheap seats in the middle of the visitors section meant everyone could spend a lot lot more on beer and wow, every single game was a huge conflict with the away team d-bags. The best was the stuff we were yelling at the Dolphins fans on a Sunday Night game – the stuff being said would probably have got you deported under Obama.

  257. Buc1987 Says:

    SB…YAH that’s what it’s like!

    I’m typing in slur and rechecking every word. Constantly hitting back space.

    Go Falcons btw. Oh wait…ha ha ha ha

  258. Rod Munch Says:

    Two cheating teams, one is a great cheating team, the other stinks at it. I think this once and for all proves deflated balls and taping the other team’s practices is far superior to pumping in crowd noise because your hometown fans sit on their hands. Then again they were right to sit on their hands since I think they all knew Matty would choke in the end.

  259. Buc1987 Says:

    Rod…ha ha ha. That’s good stuff.

    That’s what I’d like to see more around this site in down times. Just go off topic and have fans tell us some of the best times they had at games and certain memories.

    Seriously I love reading these stories from you guys. I know I’m not the only one either.

  260. captjimbo Says:

    87, the funny part is JW already has 2 more white dudes to throw to than most NFL QBs.

  261. Buc1987 Says:

    Rod…grrreat post I forgot about the crowd noise. Damn it now I don’t feel so bad that the Pat’s won another SB. Most of my family are obnox Mass Pats fans, and my uncle reminds me all the time that I could have been a Pats fan and not a Bucs fan so there’s that!

  262. Tampa Tony Says:

    87- when do you get concerned by the bad mechanics year 5 year 6? Brady was off or overthrowing small guys not a 6’5″ Evans and Jackson or brate

    Not saying Winston needs to be Brady but he has an accuracy and turnover problem those are facts and if they don’t get fixed he’s just gonna be another qb that has flashes of greatness but is consistently inconsistent. Year 3 will tell us a lot about Jameis’s progression

  263. Buc1987 Says:

    Told a Pats fan at the store the other day that I grew up in Mass and I can’t stand the Patriots. I said it is much more fun being a Bucs fan, cause every win is just so special. You guys go to SB’s all the time. I asked him how many he’s been to. He just laughed and said none. I figure most of NE has been to a SB or 2 by now.

    Where’s the parity? F U Patriots!

  264. Rod Munch Says:

    Buc1987 – I went to one game, probably around 2001 or so, we lost to Detroit, again it was a night game. A bunch of Detroit fans were walking after the game not really bothering anyone but being in their Detroit gear, I went up to a cop and told him that they were going around picking on people trying to start fights and yelling at people. The cop goes over and tells them to break it up and they’re just like, “we weren’t doing anything” and the cop was yelling at them and made them walk off in different directions. It was great. We lost, but by making their day a little worse, it made me feel a bit better.

    The Packers games were by far the best back then – I could write a book on the stuff we used to do to Packers fans the night before in Ybor and on game-day. Well not a full book, it would probably get boring, but I could write like a comic book certainly. Everything we did would have ended up trending on Twitter now and basically getting everyone fired. That’s why you don’t have all the fun stuff we used to have, going to games is very very boring compared to then. Back then you’d have girls flashing all the time, in particular early in the season and pre-season when it was hot. We opened 97 against the 49ers, the famous game where Sapp took out Rice AND Young in the same game. Anyways in that game it was insanely hot and some chick took off her top in the 4th quarter and basically stayed that way for a good 10 minutes at least. I’m guessing it was more related to all the drinking as opposed to the heat, but still – you never see fun stuff like that anymore. Now if a chick did it, it would be some big fat slob trying to make it a message about how fatsos are people too – or something like that. Back then it was some chick that was probably a stripper on the side getting loaded and sitting on some guys shoulders for 10 mins calling the 49ers are a bunch of **ggots. What a great time that was.

  265. Buc1987 Says:

    Tony…when will you stop being concerned about it?

    After Winston’s 1st or 2nd SB win?

  266. Rod Munch Says:

    Tampa Tony – Winston is STILL the youngest starting QB in the NFL and is coming off two 4,000 yard seasons. Most young QBs overthrow guys, which you prefer over under throwing guys. Winston is off to an amazing start of what should be an absolutely incredible career, he reminds of so much of Favre, and guess what Favre did early in his career… If Jameis is still overthrowing guys like Vinny did in year 5 then we should worry, but then again Vinny is 11th all time in passing yards, and Winston is way way better already than I ever saw Vinny play. I will agree I expect Jameis, now having played football year around for 2 years, to take a step forward in terms of accuracy, but most of that is footwork and having WRs to throw to. In game one of last year when he had everyone – Evans, VJ, ASJ and Martin, he destroyed the Falcons with pin-point passing. Give Winston some weapons and a running game and watch as he suddenly becomes one of the most accurate passers in the game.

  267. Buc1987 Says:


    I can easily see girls flashing at games even in the old stadium.

    Used to be if there was a fight in the stands, fans would automatically side with the Bucs fan. It was always 100’s pointing at the Lions fan or whomever. I’m not advocating physical violence, but I do get up and get things going even more if I see an altercation near me. I don’t mind instigating either.

    Those were the days. Bring those back. Make the other teams fans feel unwelcome. My wife walked right up to a Jags fan and stuck her middle finger in his face and said HA HA HA sucker you’re team LOOOOOOST!

    I’m not even a big guy so, so I’m surprised I still have all my real teeth except one crown.

  268. Rod Munch Says:

    I didn’t even think about this… Brady and Pats get to go the White House to visit the president! Wow, the entire sports media, the entire media, heck half the country will go into full meltdown! Second best Super Bowl ever, behind the XXXVII that is.

  269. Buc1987 Says:

    I go after Eagles fans.

    I could tell you stories too, but you about summed it up of how I remember. I couldn’t get into games once they started winning for lack of 300 for the highest nosebleed seat.

  270. Buc1987 Says:

    Rod…Bennett said if they win…he’s not going to the WH.

    4 other Pats as well.


  271. Buc1987 Says:

    Okay well I gotta hit the rack real soon.

    Everyone have a Buc-ing fantastic good night!

  272. Rod Munch Says:

    Buc1987 – Hahaha! Yes I’d love those days to come back – but they never will, it’s the stupid cameras being everywhere that is why. As for the fights and stuff there actually wasn’t that many that I remember, but you’re right, if there was anything that happened and security came up, everyone in our section would find a visitors fans to point out and do the “nah nah nah” song as security would wrongly take them away. Mainly we had tons of beers being thrown, that seemed to be the weapon of choice back then. At that 1997 game versus the Dolphins if memory serves right Dunn had a long play towards the end of the game that wrapped it up, the Bucs started out 5-0, and in our section, again one section surrounded on all sides by Dolphins fans (Marino was still playing so they still existed) on that Dunn play you saw what had to be hundreds of beers going flying into the Dolphins sections. The Packers games… there was so much stuff going on by my favorite was a bunch of Packers fans printing up Lombardi masks, there had to be a couple hundred of them but not sure where they came from. I grabbed one from a Packers fan then in my section stood on the seats while mooning the Packers fans and rubbing the Lombardi mask all over my rear end. It really was like 99% talk, there was very little in terms of physical confrontations, they rarely happened – and it was the beginning to end of the game. One thing people never seem to get is when you can say anything it sort of blows off steam and things don’t tend to get physical unless really dumb people are involved – but when you tell people they can’t say this or say that, that’s when you build up resentment and things get heated. I’d love love love to see that come back, but considering how PC everything is, even if the pendulum swings back the other way, which it appears to be doing, I don’t ever see it going that far back. But if it did… man I’d love that. I’d love to have those rowdy crowds where at least half of the people there were talking s the whole game.

  273. NFLNut Says:

    The Falcons choked this game away … should have had a 31-20 lead with around 2 mins left had they played proper situational football but they got cite, Ryan choked and they lost it. This could be a crushing loss for that organization and one they never recover from.

    The above is all good news for Bucs fans of course, and as for Jameis fans like myself … this game proves team wins come from quality teams not just quality QB’s … Brady was HORRIBLE in the first half of this SB … and even on the final drive to tie it up, he threw a pick to the same kid who picked 6 him earlier … this time the kid couldn’t catch it and Edelman made that insane catch … but Brady … if everything was only on him, he would have blown it.

    Also watching Brady … he hasn’t changed … he’s a world-class leader and competitor but a system QB … the guy basically NEVER throws the ball more than 10 yards through the air unless the receiver is wide open … everything is dink and dunk.

    You Bucs fans have a bonafide flame throwing superstar QB in the fold … love that kid up and support him and watch what happens … he might win ya’ll a SB in spite of his surrounding cast rather than largely because of it, ala Brady …

  274. Rod Munch Says:

    NFLNut – You’re right in that it’s what you do at the end of games, when it matters most, that matters. Ryan is fine so long as the pressure isn’t on him – when he’s up big because of an early lead we can see how well he does. But when it starts turning, when the game is on his shoulders, he does what he’s done his entire career, he collapses. Ryan is 1-3 versus Winston and Jameis already has 2 fourth quarter comebacks versus Matty Ice (LOL) for a reason. Jameis is a winner, Ryan is a stat guy who doesn’t make plays in big situations. This season the Bucs played the top 4 teams in the league (the top four that got bye weeks) and the Bucs were 2-2, the Matty ended the year 0-2 versus those teams, and in both of those games that Ryan played he choked. One was again KC where he throws a crucial 4th quarter 2pt conversation INT, and now this game which is THE biggest collapse in the history of football. Man I wish I knew from Falcons fans so I could spread my stats around.

  275. NFLNut Says:

    I agree … and it still bugs me that we live in a world where Matt Ryan is an MVP … and Drew Brees never won the award once.

    But yeah, I’d take Jameis RIGHT NOW over Ryan 100% of the time, MVP trophy or not.

  276. Tampa Tony Says:

    @87- if he wins 1 hell after 1 playoff win I’ll stop being worried by it. But just to simply ignore the issue is laughable.
