I dont know. Atlanta looks awfully good.

Could blow out the Pats.

Or, Belichek figures out a way to stop their O, and his offense rolls.

NE is better than the sum of their parts, but they are still old.

Belichek with 2 weeks to prepare?

Pats just need to make sure they stop the run and NO ONE gets open. Matty Ice has hit 13 different receivers for touchdowns. He seems to always find the one open guy. And if no one is open, the run seems to work

I'd agree with Winston. Hoodie has LOTS of HC
experience in championship games at all levels.

Quinn (Falcon's HC) is in his second season and has
one championship under his belt (the one Falcons just

Yes, but the Pats are old, man! His coaching really barely got by the (Who did they play in round 2?) and Pitt.

At one point, The Pats had a 10 point lead over their first opponent, but had run ONE offensive play to 27 for them.

Edlemen, Gronk, Blunt and such are old and operating at 50%

Atlanta looks REAL good! Never saw them during the regular season. How the Hell did we miss them? Great offense in Run and pass, and great DL

New England plays great, but Atlanta is great!

Its all on the Pats D. They HAVE to stop Atlanta early and often.

If NE didnt have home field advantage, they wouldnt be in the SB.

Gonna be a great matchup.

Ed and Winston have a great angle. The Atlanta choke and puke is definately a possibility. Young team with little big game experience (besides 2 playoff games). They could easily pull a Scam Newton/Panthers vomit.

Have to say the Atlanta O looked a machine against the Packers but their D will need to really step up against the Pats!

Granted the Pats are the older (agewise) team, but
always remember, you young people, guile and treachery
will overcome youth and skill EVERY TIME !

And there are many ready to accuse Hoodie and his team
of the G&T…

I don't think the Pats really get old except for Tom Brady. And, of course, he can still play like the star he is.

The Pats normally operation is to get skills players that can do very specific things, give them a decent enough contract and let them play for 3-4 years. For instance, Edleman is "old" by patriots standards. I suspect he will be gone after the next contract negotiation. They keep their players relatively young. Yeah. You are going to find some that are older (Blount for instance) but for the most part, with the exception of Brady, They are all relatively young.
