Seahawks at Falcons: In Search Of…

by @steven_lebron

What has changed about this Falcons team since two years ago, when they had a similarly impressive regular season and failed to keep up with Rodgers’ Packers in the post-season?

Or what has changed since last season, when the Falcons went on the road to play the Giants in the first round and fittingly, dropped a deuce (the Falcons score a safety only in the game) and were embarrassed in consecutive post-seasons.

Sunday’s game is the answer, or at least the start of the answer. For the Falcons to even think about Super Bowls and championship rings, they need to win a playoff game first.

We’ve heard this offense advertised as the best in the league before, everything sounds a bit familiar. The Falcons remind me of Andy Reid-Donovan McNabb’s Eagles, in that it took Philadelphia so many years to get out of the NFC after so many trips to the Conference Finals.

At some point, when you put yourself in a position to host playoff games against inferior opponents, it has to tip the other way, right?

But how inferior are the Seahawks? They showed me a lot last week with their win at Washington, maybe we should stop referring to Russell Wilson as a rookie and just enjoy the ride, and perhaps this defense is an elite unit.

But really, this game comes down to Atlanta. Can we say this is the most important game in franchise history? If they come up short this weekend, it’s going to be an especially long off-season for the Falcons. It would also be their third such off-season in a row.

I think they get over the hump this week.

Falcons win 34-14.

What does everybody think?
