and as i type this john abraham gets hurt. wow utter fail by atlanta if this is serious
Mike Smith sucks. Dude can't coach 3rd and 1 to save his life. Dude has a ton of talent on that team though.
Didn't Dunta Robinson get hurt in this game too?
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
yes. Falcons are hilarious. Gonna get bounced by whoever goes to Atlanta in round 2.
If not for that Seattle game the Packers would be clinching the 1 seed in the NFC with a win this afternoon. So frustrating, knew that game was going to fvck them over.
theyre gonna be a 1 and done once again.
to make matters worse they played the starters the whole time and still lost to the Bucs at home
You wouldn't know their starters were in the Martin ran all over their arses. Egregious decision by Smith in the first place, though. I know hindsight is 20/20 but in a meaningless game give your guys some got damn rest.

probably saw what happened to the Packers last year and didn't want to do that.
Packers sat em week 17 then had the bye and looked like shit in the playoff game, some credit to the Giants obviously, but they did not look ready for that game.
Its a tough decision for a coach, pros and cons either way and you are going to get criticized if the way you choose doesnt work out, but its really a toss up.
this is what college football will turn into with playoffs.
last game of season will be pointless
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
one and done

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
No way.. Only 4 teams get in the playoffs.. If you lose late, you'll probably miss the CFB playoffs
the playoff will expand to more than 4 teams
I would have sent them out for at least the first quarter. With a bye next week, I'd want them to get some gametime today. It backfired on him, but I don't blame him.

If you're the #1 team, you'd still have a good chance to fall no further than #4.
All hypothetical, would depend on your record.

stupid move - still really hard to believe they played the whole game in a meaningless game
