Would you like I start another JJ thread?

Off topic here but does anybody remember several years back when there was a wager between some Eagle board members and some Falcon board members for their avatar... The winning team picks the losing teams avatar for members?

This question is flawed. Is Tigz really Swift? LOL cute if so.
It's obviously someone who has been banned because look at the post above. The guy just gave himself away HILARIOUS!

I'd take option #1. Going into the 12th year, my odds of having won the Superbowl are far greater if this is my 12th attempt rather than my first. I realize this is outside the premise of the question, but the question can only truly ever be answered in retrospect.
I want the Falcons to win a SB, hell 10 of them, but for me the agony of 11 losing seasons in a row far outweighs the high of one night. And after 11 straight losing seasons, no matter how the good the 12th one was, I guarantee you I would have more than doubts about winning the Superbowl, I would be jaded by 11 straight losing seasons, and it would negatively affect my enjoyment of the season, especially hearing about how they are "pretenders" the whole season.
The good news is that we don't have to pick and choose. I would much rather have a consistent winner and take my chances come tournament time. Some of it is out of the team's control anyway. Last year, if the Giants don't screw the pooch on that last second punt return, Green Bay doesn't make the playoffs and there's a good chance we go to the Superbowl.
I guess it comes down to expectations. I feel that all I can ask for is a team that consistently puts itself in a position to play for a championship. It looks like that is exactly what we are getting. Sure, I'll bitch and complain about stuff that happens in a particular game, but overall, after experiencing all the losing spanning decades I know this is one of those times to enjoy the ride.

I considered banning you during the Carolina game during your chat stunt. The, "ha ha ha, look at that homers, Julio dropped a pass and we're losing" bit doesn't mesh well here. Other than that, no.

I don't want to know what the next 12 years hold no matter what we do.

Since I'm an admin here, everything I say IS considered fact
Seriously, enjoying 12 winning seasons and playoff wins is tolerable. 12 losing seasons, a SB win, and 12 more losing seasons... whats the point? You've then turned into the current St Louis Rams. Nobody remembers them winning the SB in 2000.

i don't think it's swift, i think it zigg zagg aka phalcon phil. banned as zigg zagg, left here over a bet on the eagles game, recently banned from the other board.
i'm with radical, i don't like you either, as well as a few other mods. not an instant ban.
i personally am not gonna feed the iggie troll by responding to any more of his threads/posts.
