A last minute field goal, if you please. They got the ball back on their own 45 and did have a chance. As slim as it was, it was well within the realm of possibility. They had one play to make field goal range. Didn't do that and had the Hail Mary, which failed miserably, but the ball did make it to the endzone.

Good to learn about sports disappointments early. There are many in life. I’m just bummed we won’t get to see Wilson again. I mean, what’s more boring than watching Matt Ryan play?

I was sort of pulling for SanFran and the Ravens, but my husband lost all of his games this weekend...every game was pretty competitive except the New England one...

Poor kid - Falcons did all they could to give the game away, too.

I was about 10 years older than her at the time, but I felt the exact same way Bills vs. Giants Superbowl XXV - Scott Norwood final kick - wide right. Tell her to look for it on youtube.

I lost all of my games, too. I have to say that they all were super games and most could have gone either way. I was watching on the edge of my seat for many of them. If only the actual Super Bowl could be as interesting. So many SBs have been yawners.

Seattle lost cuz:

The coach went for it on 4th down instead of kicking a field goal early in the game.

Coach calling a crappy play that ended up with a sack and running out of time in the 1st half - when they coulda gotten another field goal.

Coach calling a timeout on the last-second Atlanta kick [it went wide-right], giving Atlanta another kick [it sailed thru the uprights].

Just sayin’ ...

I might have had a meltdown. But Notre Dame didn’t even show up to play, so there was really nothing to be upset about.

I almost wish they would have overturned the last Seahawks touchdown, so they could have run a little more time off the clock, or at least to force Atlanta to use up their timeouts.

Seattle area here - went to church this evening so as to watch the game this morning.

The preacher welcomed us and said something like,

“Welcome to worship, a time to fellowship with the Lord, and ask him the really big questions of life. Like why did the Seahawks have Marshan Lynch on the bench for 4th and 1? Why hire a field goal kicker if he doesn’t do any work? Etc.”

Nobody laughed.

That time-out at the last second Atlanta kick is going to give the coach nightmares for ever. If ever you’d want to live a last second over -———————

I've kept asking that question.

WHY did Pete Carroll ask for a timeout when the kicker had already done his thing?

I'm no head coach in the NFL, but you NEVER give a kicker a second chance.

Stupid, and dangerous. Kickers "adjust" after an icing. And the Seahawks paid dearly.

As a Falcon fan, tell her the pain will ease.

The Falcons broke my heart by blowing a lead in a playoff game against the Cowboys in 1981.

Today made up for it so tell her it only hurts for 31 years. :)

I've seen it done to Bryant at least four times. And every time he is "iced", he goes through with his practice kick....even if the opposing team calls it much earlier than Seattle did today.

Really irks the other team when he does it....but so does being "iced".

When will they quit doing that?

It never seems to work and left Seattle with no time outs to get within field goal range. (But then again...Mike Smith should have waited until the clock ran to 3 seconds before calling HIS time out)

That’s how I felt when I was 10 and I saw the refs steal the ‘84 OU-Texas game from the Sooners with several horrible calls; the ‘Horns managed a tie with a last second field goal.

Have you seen the QB Facebook conversations that someone has been ginning up this year? A little long, but pretty funny.

I’m sure they’ll be putting up a new on after this weekend. Language warning.

I hope Wilson gets Rookie of the Year. He deserves it. He didn’t come into the league as the next great franchise player. Luck and RG3 did. Wilson won the starting job the old fashioned way, on the field. He set all kinds of records this year for a rookie.

Aww, isn't that cute. Matt Ryan wins his first playoff game and all of a sudden he's Joe Montana.

Keep in mind that Matt Ryan was only a missed field goal away from pulling another "Matt Ryan" (great regular season, lose first round of the playoffs). We'll see how he does against a team that stomped on Aaron Rodgers and the Pack, a team that HAS won the Super Bowl.

Their last one was in 1994, when most of their current players were still in elementary school.

I didn’t say he was Montana...just that many called him boring too. Last time the miners came here for the playoffs...they lost.
I feared the Seahawks more than the niners ...Russell. is a much better qb...the hawks have a better secondary. Could be wrong...but.

He’s got the skills, and is the real deal unlike a lot of these running QBs that the media loves to puppet. The Falcons just seem to run out of gas in the playoffs. Maybe 4 times the charm.

1. Folks need to learn how to lose gracefully. (and not claim that you *didn't* call timeout, when you clearly did)

2. I wish I saw this much emotion about stuff that matters.

He called it before the kick. It is a chicken $hit tactic that nearly ever team uses. I'm glad if finally bit someone in the ass.
