Bias aside, history has showed us that high powered offenses tend to fold against balanced teams


So New England's going to win

Glad I'm poasting in the "official" Super Bowl thread.



Anyways.

Last time #1 defense (points scored, cus we already established this is more important) vs #1 offense was us against the broncos.

So, yea History is on defense winning

But dang, this ain't a qb that was in the twighlight of his career going against ARGUABLY THE GOAT DEFENSE with all players in their prime.

Matt Ryan is in his prime. Julio is in peak prime. Two headed running backs

If Vic Beasley and the rest can get any pressure on Brady and get just a few stops , Falcons win a shoot out.

They literally only have to stop Patriots a couple times.

That offense is absolutely ridiculous.

Hope it's an entertaining shoot out.

Can Matt Ryan handle the pressure? I wouldn't be surprised if he crumbled. Or throw 4 tds.

What are you babbling about? all former SuperBowl threads had "Official" in the title, I'm just keeping the tradition

And to say Peyton was outside his prime is dumb, dude arguably had his best season that year, broken neck or not.

Also, CAR VS Denver last year was also #1 D V # O, with the same results

Makes it worse when Seahawks #1 defense lost to the #4 offense...

New England aint Denver defensively though...far as panthers go, they were pretty much a Russell westbrook like offense with cam doing everything..that stuff gets snuffed out by elite defenses eventually. At least falcons have a bunch of weapons.

He was throwing ducks.

That shit worked against scrub defenses , but against some dogs , he was a SCRUB.

And Watch your tone, boy.

NE's defense isn't THAT good. Right now the Falcons are arguable playing just as well on that side of the ball.

This isn't like the Broncos or Seahawks defense at all.

Playing in a dome?

This offense will be the best the patriots have seen in quite some time.

I don't know how many times one need watch this improved Falcons defense to understand that using the regular season numbers is stupid.

Falcons had the 27th ranked defense doe. That kind of mentality is how people watch a game like this and end up very surprised.

Patriots only play close games in Super Bowls. I believe the biggest margin was 4 points? And that was an L to Eli and the Giants

I am gonna root for the Falcons, but my mind says Patriots. I am tired of the same old teams winning. Matty Ice has to put up, this is his moment.
