Falcons Statement Game -- Cbs

Falcons Statement Game

Because a week of NFL action takes place in roughly seven hours and because there about 70 hours to examine what happen, we put a ton of emphasis on week-to-week results. This is dumb, but it happens anyway.

Atlanta reminded us why it's dumb on Sunday, when they throttle-jobbed the Giants at the Georgia Dome 34-0. The Falcons were written off as a playoff contender despite being 11-2, primarily because they hadn't beaten anyone that convincingly.

Well, scratch that. We talk about teams getting hot at the right time, and this is why you don't want to write off the Falcons: they can get hot. They have Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Roddy White to generate an incredibly dynamic passing attack. Michael Turner's a bit run down, but he and Jacquizz Rodgers can still run the ball. John Abraham gets after opposing quarterbacks.

They're not some plodding offense that fails to stop impressive offenses. "Getting hot" isn't about getting to 11-2 and having people question you. It's about coming on strong late, burying teams you're not supposed to beat (according to the "experts") and using that momentum to keep it going in the playoffs.

Atlanta is starting to do that and they made a monster statement on Sunday by paddling the Giants

I believe that if this team plays to it's potential for 4 quarters of football, then there isn't any team in the league that they can't beat. When our o-line blocks their butts off, and we can establish a threat of the run to pull teams out of that cover 2 bs we are an absolute matchup nightmare. Add in Matt throwing the ball to HD83 and we are unstoppable on offense...

Exactly. If they play at the high level as they did yesterday and remain consistent in their play on both sides of the ball, there's not team we can't compete with in the NFC. Once we get HFA, one win in the playoffs and we're at the NFC Championship game--or two wins and we're in the Superbowl. Let's go Falcons!!!
