Seattle has a pretty good defense, and a decent offense, but as we saw in the 1st quarter, they ain't the 85 Bears. They're one and done, and lucky that Shanahan rode RG3 into the ground before the Hawks got to town.

You should see it here in Seattle... it's crazy. The Falcons might as well not even show up.

The 1985 Bears, eh, 2012 Seahawks are coming to town... O M G can we forfeit?

I've been in Wisconsin 5 yrs., as an Illinois resident I lived the '85 Bears experience and would be rather insulting for fans of the Seahawks to even think it. The 85 Bears were a team like no other, that was an awesome, undescribeable time, and I'm glad to say I watched every game. They aren't even close.

I really want the Falcons to win this game and I like Wilson! I watched him play at Wisconsin and actually thought too bad this kid won't get much of a chance in the NFL because of his height (what did I know then apparently not much)! !

Seattle has a great team but so does Atlanta.

A great matchup.

There is a ton of pressure on the Falcons to win this game. Not so much on the Seahawks.. That could be a formula for disaster for the Falcons. But, my gut tells me that this is the year for the Falcons, at least this is the year they win a playoff game under Ryan and Mike Smith... It should be a good game, but I think the Falcons veterans will rise to the occasion and lead the Falcons to the a win..

Blah....blah...blah....blah....if this...if that...

Too bad the game is 4 quarters.

One and done, if it happens, is better than the Skins none and done. I won't be surprised if the 'Hawks win in ATL. The Falcons could easily be slowed down by that 0-3 playoff gorilla on their back.

The last three times Washington has made the playoffs, they've been bounced by Seattle. I'd be bitter if I was a 'Skins fan too.

one in done is meant to say the team will play in one game and lose - hence, one game and done .... no wins - basically it's a slight saying the team doesn't belong and they will be exposed once the playoffs start

seattle won a playoff game, so that phrase is out the window and they clearly belong in the playoffs

atlanta is a heck of a team though .... should be a great game

Speaking for the Atlanta fans all I can say is I think we'll be fine.

Matt Ryan has 2 legs.

and no playoff wins and not much of a running game and not much of a run defense - what exactly is your point?

just trying to talk crap for the sake of it?!

Just so you know, the Falcons lost to the eventual NFC champion, all three years. Two of the teams won the Super Bowl. It's not as if they were playing the average playoff team during those three losses.

Go over to NFL.com and look up defensive stats...

Atlanta was in the top 5 in points allowed... Opposing QB rating....

Turner went from 1300 yards on 350 carries to 800 yards on 220 carries. Not surprising with a new OC in a pass happy offense.
