It seems that we finally broke the Steve Bartkowski curse today. Completing our own version of the Big Ben. That play, as it turns out, really broke Atlanta's spirit. It really needs a name. What's it going to be?

The Backstroke
The Butterfly
The Flasher
Copper Canyon
The Copper Rush

I like the "Watch Deangelo Hall make an idiot out of himself selfishly trying to pad his stats," but it just doesn't roll off the tongue.
"The end of Jr's head coaching career."
"The death of the 06 Falcons playoff hopes"

but my fav,

"HA HA!"
The name of their miraculous plays was named 'Big Ben' because that was the name of the play shown in their playbook.

The media (as well as some other teams) referred to the desperation pass as 'Hail Mary'; as in throwing up a prayer.

It's really not up to the fans to name the play. I'd just like to know what Sean Payton calls his version of the play.

Until I do, I'll just refer to it as 'Poetic Justice'. :9:
