    :lol::lol::lol: 13-3 This year!

    Any other Falcon lovers out there? Never hear much chatter about them, even the talking heads seem to still mention them in passing, just to praise teams who have accomplished much less this season . I don't care, I'm feeling great today! Can't wait for the playoffs.

    Agree, Falcons and Eagles would be great. However, I'm thinking the Eagles may have peaked a little too early. They'd have to beat GB, then Chicago, just to get to Atlanta...assuming Atlanta wins, which they should.

    Hey, man - Congrats on a great season! I am pulling hard for my Saints to repeat - and I think to do so we have to go through Atlanta - but y'all have a great team that could go all the way.

    Those Falcons did it without Farve!

    ;)

    I'm thinking the NFC champ game might be more like Packers at Bears.

    Falcons have lost 3 games this year... Somehow the opposing teams did not score more points than our offense. Defense a problem????:rolleyes:

    hmm lets see the Eagles are one team that defeated the Falcon's could face in the Playoffs the other is of course Saints if they can get past those twos then they have to deal with Steelers in the Super Bowl.

    So they might have a slim chance.

    Hey. Who knows what will happen. I've certainly never said they were going to win the Super Bowl, much less get there. It just kind of drives me nuts that the Falcons are not really considered a contender by so many. The Falcons beat the Saints once this year and they beat us once. Yes the Eagles beat us, at Philly, 1 of our 3 losses. But, if either of these teams make it past next week, they will have to come to Atlanta. Atlanta is pretty tough at home. 20 wins and 4 losses under coach Mike Smith. just saying our home record and our season record is pretty impressive. I'll also admit that I'm kind of glad that we are still kind of under the radar.

    Atlanta certainly is good at home, and with the Eagles D being mediocre at best (and that's being generous), they're going to be a tough out for the Birds, or anybody else. But as an Eagles fan, I'd still feel more confident with them playing in Atlanta, or New Orleans, rather than Chicago. With the speed the Eagles have on offense I just see it as a better matchup playing indoors on the fast track. Chicago has that messy field, not to mention a good D, which really helps to neutralize the speed of Vick, Jackson, etc. But even that's looking ahead, they have to beat the Pack first.
