Trolling The Nation for Falcons @ Cowboys: “40 Burger. Served!”

Relive the fourth quarter via the comments of Cowboys fans and other as they watched a comeback for the ages.

Here’s your chance to relive what fans of other NFL teams were thinking while they were watching the Cowboys comeback against the Falcons - via the comments made by those fans while watching the game. And to celebrate the occasion, we’ve added a new twist and added comments by Cowboys fans into the mix as well.

As epic as the Cowboys comeback was against the Falcons, the reactions of fans can be even more epic. We couldn’t let the occasion pass without archiving it for posterity. The Cowboys season was teetering on the edge of oblivion but they are now back in the game.


Disclaimer: All quotes are taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites as indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy our site guidelines, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

Falcons I don't think I've ever seen a less impressive 39 point game. I'm glad they scored that much but hardly feels as dominant as the score indicates.
