The Dirty Birds were all over the "Pack" as it was over by halftime with Atlanta leading with a convincing 24-0 lead at the break. Then it was All-World WR Julio Jones not even a minute into the 3rd frame taking a crossing route some 73 yards making it 31-0 and game set match. Jones and NFL M.V.P. to be Matty Ice Ryan went IMAX Theater on the "Pack" but it was that Falcons "D"!
Yes Dirty Birds lead man Dan Quinn has put his stamp all over that "D" and it looks like the Seattle Seahawks from 2012. Man Press/Bump and Run Coverage on the outside with Red Jersey Collectors getting after the QB. That side of the Wilson pigskin if they perform up to snuff will win the Dirty Birds the Chip but it will be a tall order.
Turning over to the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots it was over maybe when Stiller Gang lost its star RB Le'Veon Bell to that Groin Injury. Seeing how the game played out one will never know but we know this...the Pats were balling!
Pats QB Tom Brady was like a Brain Surgeon at John Hopkins not missing anything as he sliced up that Steelers Zone Coverage for a 36-17 win. Yes Zone Coverage with no rush that is 7 on 7 for Brady and the boys.
The Pats "D" also played well and they will have their hands full against what will probably be the best offense they will face this season outside of facing Tom and his bunch in practice. Pats WR Chris Hogan did damage but they might not have big names but the Pats skilled-guys can play with anyone.
Now we get the two best in Sunday Football dba 17-Week Trek down in Harris County Texas for all the marbles as the Pats will go "One for the Thumb" and the Dirty Birds try to get one for the new swank Mercedes Benz Stadium dba the Big S600 V12 as that opens up this fall...
Stay tuned for more Big Bowl 51 Coverage...
