One playoff win doesnt necessarily mean they have enough experience. They are still a young team and it gets tougher as it goes on.
Still, last year, this year, whatever.
Falcons are a good team, so are the Seahawks.
I am looking for a good game and thats all that matters to me.
This is the NFL and any given Sunday.

Without a doubt ..... I've compared this falcons team a bit to the 2005 hawks team ..... My point to the comment is that it has zero to do with this game .... Each game its it's own matchup and there are good ones here

Seattle had a clear advantage with their running game and OL ..... Atlanta with their screen game seemed ability in the middle of the field ..... Match up outside should be great and them the variable of Wilson ..... Clemmons out really hurts depth

I think this is an intriguing game and will go to the team that best executes their advantage and doesn't make mistakes ..... Red zone, 3rd down, turning the field if you don't score ... That's where it's at today

C'mon man... everyone knows that Russell Wilson facing a one-legged RGIII in the playoffs is EXACTLY the same as Matt Ryan facing 3 Super Bowl champion QBs (Warner, Rodgers, Manning)...

Wilson is by far the more seasoned veteran.

*turns sarcasm off*

I thought Falcons would win (or hoped they would), however, Seahawks almost came back and won that game, which has been a problem for the Falcons, I think. The matchup this weekend should be a great game.

That's honestly a problem for every team. Even the Patriots let the Texans sneak back into the game.. although not quite as dramatic and when push came to shove.. they shoved back and closed the door but momentum shifts from side to side often during a game and when a team gets desperate and the other team is preserving a big lead, you often get what we saw with the Falcons and Seahawks yesterday.. and even a tad with the Texans and Patriots...

Im extremely happy with this team even in a loss. I watched a Broncos team play not to lose (actually it looked like they played TO lose), whereas Russell Willson and the rest of the Hawks never threw in the towel. Next time, maybe we will have more luck in the 1st quarter, and win this darn thing. I have two favorite teams. Denver (whos shirt I feel like burning in the fireplace right now) and Seattle. Seattle, I actually want to buy more of your gear. Not looking forward to watching old man Manning with his crappy "in the cold weather" arm yelling HURRY HURRY, or HARRAY HARRAY (cant tell what the heck that man is saying at the line), winning 13 games and losing 1st game of the cold playoffs. CAN'T WAIT to see Russell Willson and team on fire again next year.
