    Epic matchup. Likely the two top MVP candidates facing off.

    I remember not that long ago the talking heads with their shiny new objects declared the days of the pocket passer are gone.

    And they'll do it again the next time a running QB has a hot season as they have been doing off and on since the 80's.

    They were gone, until they changed the rules to make life as a pocket passer much easier.

    Houston is rewarded with a great matchup. Brady's 5th, or Ryan's 1st.

    Sounds like he's been hanging with Johnny

    I think the totals might be the safe play

    Falcons have looked unstoppable.

    You might be right. So, it actually opened at PK and was promptly hammered up to 3?

    I really hope the Falcons can win this one because dude doesn't want to see the Pats celebrating in NRG stadium. That's sacrilege.

    I would be happy to put my resume forward for Falcons ball dude (so long as I don't have to pass any strenuous drug testing), I will happily inflate them to Matt Ryan's precise specifications.

    I think this will likely be similar to Super Bowl 38 with two quarterbacks that can sling it.

    Devonta Freeman is the key for the Falcons to win it, imo. Keep Brady on the bench, eat the clock, and long drives.

    I'm picking Belichick and the Patriots to come up with a great game plan but wouldn't mind seeing the Falcons win it.
