“When I’m wrong, I’m the first to admit it. The first to admit it. And the last one to know.”
— Paul Simon
The Packers got whupped. And I was wrong, wrong, wrong in picking them to win the NFC Championship.
I got a real bad feeling after Mason Crosby missed the field goal in the first quarter. But I knew the game was over when Aaron Ripkowski fumbled in the second quarter.
Crosby doesn’t miss, and Ripkowski doesn’t fumble. Except last Sunday.
Now we’re stuck with Matt Ryan and the Falcons. I just can’t root for a guy who looks like Neidermeyer from Animal House.
But I might pick him. The Falcons look great. Then again, so does Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Give me a week to think about this.
