    Beyond that, they only ran the ball 5 times after being up 28-3. Classic Shanahan abandoning the run.

Kill two more minutes on their two drives, or forcing out BB's timeouts should have completely changed the outcome of the game.
    This seemed like the dumbest part to me. I bet they could have taken off a whole 2 minutes had they simply not hiked the ball until the last 5 seconds or so once they were up 28-3. You already know as early as the 3rd quarter that time is at a premium for the Patriots--why voluntarily give them more of it? I guess you want to play the up-tempo game that got you the lead in the first place, but still, it just seems dumb.

    I just rewatched the second half. They rushed 3 three times after half and got a sack on one of them. They were with press man too.

    Most of the time it was Cover 1 Press Man, and the receiver just beat their guys for the most part. Not one play where it looked like prevent

    -Throw over the middle tied in regulation with under a minute to play and no timeouts
    That's the one that amazed me. Matt Ryan hangs out with Stafford in the offseason so Stafford will have to teach him how to score with no timeouts and a short clock. In exchange I hope that Ryan teaches Stafford how to win a playoff game against GB.

    Rofl, Blue, you're both kinda right. Atlanta does primarily run a Cover 1 defense, and they were only rushing with 3 by the end, but that's a major part of their defense. Frequently they'll throw up 4 man fronts and have one drop into coverage, like what happened on the pick-6 earlier in the game. I think they were trying to trap Brady into another bad pass with it like they had with the interception, but Brady didn't fall for the look again.

    The problem was they went entirely into that look and stopped rushing 4 at all. And Brady with time will murder you, no matter how good your coverage is.

    If anything to give their own defense a rest. They had absolutely nothing left at the end of that game.

    Wrong. I saw them rushing three by the start of the fourth quarter.

    I think they also pulled Beasley off the field for obvious passing downs by the 4th quarter, but I'm not sure on that. I know they didn't have him rushing the passer on several of those downs, though.

    Shanahan tried to be way too cute. You should remain aggressive with like a 7 point lead. At 25 points, you should be playing ball control, especially with Freeman having a good game

    I'm still amazed by that.
