You are reaching big time with this thread. Fail Mary indeed?
What as amazing is that our rookie QB was able to make a pass to the end zone with just two plays from the kickoff after the D flunked in being able to stop Atl. from scoring a FG.
That we could only get one WR anywhere near the ball, Baldwin, tells another story of need for more talent at WR but it was the confirmation of the beginning of a special new reality that in 20 seconds the O could put itself in position for at least a shot at the W.
It was not a "fail Mary" at all but a pretty amazing demonstration that our young QB has an incredible arm the team will rely upon in the future to take it to the promised land and to the long desired W in the final game of the year.
I don't see any irony at all, but I saw a champion beginning to understand how much more it will take to get us to the goal of the ultimate W.

Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.
Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.
What a special magical year!
