There is no shortage of blame to go around for the Atlanta Falcons’ collapse in Super Bowl 51. The Falcons built a 28-3 lead in the middle of the third quarter and let it slip away, ultimately falling to the New England Patriots, 34-28, in overtime. Matt Ryan voiced one previously undisclosed factor in the collapse this week in an interview with Pete Prisco of CBS Sports, pointing the finger at the new coach of the 49ers. Kyle Shanahan has been the focus of a lot of the blame, but critique from the league MVP was a new one. The Falcons quarterback faulted his former offensive coordinator for taking too much time to relay the play calls. Ryan said he did not have enough time to change any of the

The Hall of Fame quarterback is widely considered one of the greatest players to ever play the game of football. During his 16-year career he won four Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers and was named Super Bowl MVP three times. Now in his post playing days Montana has found a new way to beat the competition, and it’s far less likely to result in a blind side hit … mini golf.

With the NFL training camps edging ever closer, Colin Kaepernick remains a free agent. The 29-year-old opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers at the end of last season, and is yet to sign with a new team—a topic heavily debated. Michael Vick, the former quarterback who retired in 2015, doesn’t believe the lack of interest in Kaepernick is due to his iconic protest, which involved the QB taking a knee rather than standing during the U.S. national anthem last year to draw attention to racism in the U.S.

Hall of Famer Charles Haley sees a little bit of Joe Montana in Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. Haley had a front-row seat to much of Montana's storied career, winning two Super Bowls alongside the legendary signal-caller in his first stint with the San Francisco 49ers from 1986 to 1991. The former defensive end and linebacker then left for the Cowboys, where he won a further three titles, and says Dallas has a player on their hands in Prescott who possesses the same self-assurance on the field as three-time Super Bowl MVP Montana.
