Their odds at taking the division--about 40% (if Julio is 90%, the should be favored in the last two games).

IF they make the playoffs:
Odds of winning a playoff game at home 50% (if Julio healthy and no big new injuries).

Odds of winning Super Bowl--about 1%. (If I wasn't a fan, I would say less than 1% chance!)"

Atlanta is not a good team, but we have enough weapons on offense that on a good day we have a punchers chance at beating anyone, even on the road. You can reasonably hope (but not expect) for for one playoff road win.

If they had to go to Seattle or even play teams like Green Bay at home, they will get dismantled. They have no defense.

If by a miracle they made it to the Superbowl, the Patriots will dismantle them.

He would also understand that Mike Smith is an extremely conservative coach, has poor clock management, and does not adjust his game plan during the games. Good lord man. Really?
Exactly, look at that Packers game, damn shame, Aaron Rodgers was getting 7-9 seconds to make a play. You dont give even CUTLER that much time to throw a football! Let alone Rodgers! 3rd down for the packers was a piece of cake cause our defense was non existent in getting to Rodgers. And dont even just blame the Defense, I have no idea what is going on with Matt Ryan, literally running towards sacks to get sacked.
