Honestly, I thought it would be around 4 this afternoon (even w/Atlanta getting 3 for being home team)

I also thought the over under was low...

You know who worries me on ATL? Not the two good wideouts nor the running game (a bit weak) but Jacquizz Rogers. Niners can't seem to contain little speedy change-of-pace backs.

Yeah that was an epic runover of Earl Thomas today. A sick run.

Along with the ATL offense ... no coincidence.
It's like they went all Andy Reid in the second half: too much of a good thing is baaaad.

Yes, they won, but this was not the convincing win all the Atlanta fans predicted.

My thought is that they feel they are playing w/house money.

I seriously doubt many of them expect to win this week (unlike before Seattle)

That will be the theme after this week if they lose.....book it.

This Falcons team can beat SF... I don't care about the negativity that I'm sure we'll hear about all week. 0-3 in the playoffs is done.

This Falcons team is still one of the best home teams in the NFL... Ryan 34-6 lifetime in the dome? The monkey is off the back... and I think the Falcons will come out even more fired up next week.

1998 was no different... the 14-2 Falcons had no chance of beating the 15-1 Vikings... in Minnesota.

None.

Of course they can beat San Francisco. They have a lot of cleaning up to do to correct things that happened today. When you get to this point, nothing is impossible.

I just wish you would've watched the 49er/Packer game. I was dead wrong on Kapernick. Wilson's mobility gave the Falcon defense fits today. He's a real good cool QB. But seeing Kapernick yesterday, he is on a different level. And the 49er defense is pretty good...lol.

I don't think you'll have too many fans who dispute this...
