I see a lot of people are disagreeing with my impression. They say Atlanta's offense chickened out in the second half and tried to burn too much clock. What say you?

Atlanta not simply running the ball while at the New England 22 yard line while within easy Matt Bryant field goal range, which would have made it an 11 point game with about three minutes left, was throwing from the goal line which you hav Marshawn Lynch level of dumb. That 12 yard sack was an absolute killer, the holding penalty was devastating as were the clock stoppages.

 

Ya, this was nutty.

I don’t really agree. Football is a game of momentum. Atlanta was, in my opinion, lucky to have the lead they had at halftime. There was no way Matt Ryan was going to remain perfect and that they were going to score in bunches the rest of the way.

 

I don’t think the Pats were that bad in the first half. The pick 6 really was the big difference maker in the first half. Every single NFL team is going to make adjustments at halftime. It was safe to say the second half wasn’t going to be the same sort of blowout the first half was. Once the 3rd quarter rolled along, you could smell some sort of a comeback coming. Still, it all could have been mitigated with an easy 40 yard Matt Bryant field goal.

 

Atlanta needed to put up points when they were down there at the 22 yard line. The coaches should have done a better job at recognizing the situation. They didn’t need a touchdown there. No heroics were required. Julio Jones and Matt Ryan just got them all the heroics they needed. From there, they needed to:

  1. Kick a field goal
  2. Make the Pats use their timeouts
  3. Burn clock

In that order. They failed on all three objectives. Epic failure.

Ya, it was an epic failure.  A lot of things all went wrong.

 

But whatever, I had no favourite, happy to just cheer any way.

It wasn't so much as burning the clock than getting the clock cleaned.

I think it’s great. It’s called the court of public opinion. They are hitting GM where it hurts. I don’t think any red blooded blue collar Canadian union man would buy a GM after seeing that ad. In any case it’s more than Trudeau did

Take a listen to UNIFOR president Gerry Dias call Stephen Harper “stupid.” This is what labour relations are about now? Mumbling and bumbling about fairness and morality? Unfortunately for Dias, Trudeau has no interest in enticing corporations to return their production to Canada. He’ll have more luck talking to Trump about that.

Oh no! A few red blooded blue collar Canadian union men won’t buy their cars! Whatever will GM do...

Canadian sales account for 2% of their global auto sales. I don’t think GM cares. The truth is nobody wants to build cars in Canada due to prohibitive costs and this is just another Canadian automobile assembly domino to fall.

You are blinded by your boomer tier conservatism.
Think about it. This globalist company took our bailout money and now want to make cars in Mexico and sell them to us with their SJW commercials. Have you seen GM Canada ads lately? All about refugees etc.
Our globalist prime minister can’t or won’t do anything about it, so UNIFOR is at least telling Canadians what’s afoot. If Scheer wasn’t so laughably weak he would be making these kind of commercials.

GM is more interested in building in China than Canada or the US

OK RFS, what’s your plan then? Subsidize GM? Cut them a cheque every month to halve their electricity bill to nullify Ontario’s outrageous electricity rates? Force Canadians to buy GM’s plastic-ware?

Jerry Dias refers to himself as Scheer’s worst nightmare, he told Doug Ford to **** himself and he’s championing Trudeau’s media subsidy as a brilliant chess move. A real class act, he is, making friends and influencing people with every foul mouthed press briefing.

I’d play hardball. Leave disastrous trade deals. Put massive, punitive tariffs on Mexican cars. Seize assets of GM for compensation. Mess with their supppy chain. Find an automaker that is still building cars in Canada and give them favourable advantages.

slow down there rfs. if mexicans can make stuff cheap we should buy it. we don’t need to prop up assembly industry here. it’s a pretty low skilled trade if mexicans can do it. let’s concentrate on things we have a natural advantage at like resource extraction and higher tech. and just import the cheap stuff like mexican cars.

Where was Dias when Wynne was orchestrating her disastrous energy policy, or Trudeau first conceived of his punitive carbon taxes?

 

Oh right, he was busy orchestrating his attacks on the Tories and oblivious to the rug being pulled from under his feet. Now he's airing emotionally charged, second-rate commercials before half-cut audiences watching a mind-numbing American sporting spectacle on over-priced "competitive" Canadian television. I mean the cognitive dissonance at play here is something else.
