first of all neither one of these teams are that good. second of all they got a serious home filed advantage right now because of the noise. San Fran offense with KAEP isn't as effective in this atmosphere as it is with Alex Smith. great decision Harbaugh

Seattle is crushing them right now, Wow they look good, but they are not this good on the road, but think they can definitely earn another victory over Green Bay.

Our biggest weakness are these teams greatest strengths. Can run very well. And stop the run (even though we can't run effectively)

Our greatest strength is their weakness as well. We have a creative defensive scheme against a rookie QB and we can put pressure on their secondary.

It is obvious how good Seattle is, but we are just as scary to a neutral fan...I promise. You think teams drool over the prospect of facing Julio, White, Gonzales, Samuel, Abraham, Witherspoon, and Ryan in Atlanta? While we are worrying about other teams, we need to remember to give our own team the respect it has earned.

If people watching this game still think the Falcons are flawed, the 49ers look like another big one just rattled the west coast and they fell right in the crack head first! They are getting WHOOOOPED physically and clearly outcoached tonight.

New England had to come from behind too today against Jax of all teams and won lucky for them. Houston getting dropped also at home has to hurt thier rankings. Tommorrow's polls should look something like this:

1. Atlanta

2. Denver

3. Green Bay

4. New England

5. Seattle ( if they win, # 6 if they lose))

6. Houston

7. Baltimore

8. San Francisco

9. Washington

10. Cincinnatti

11. Minnesota

12. Chicago

13...everyone else, doesn't matter

Some of you guys are seriously so self-conscious about this team it's ridiculous. Is it wrong to complement our potential competition? I guess in this dictatorship or socialist state, it isn't.

I have been complimenting them all season long. I just don't like the "we are beat before we play" attitude...like we can't stand up to good teams. It is so last year...get over it. We are good.

The one sticking point which will benefit us which was said last night before we won, " The Falcons win tonight, wrap up HFA, they are guaranteed no matter how far thier season goes to not have to play another game outside a dome the rest of the season".

That is huge for us!! Can't say that for any other team who may be faced with cold, wind, snow or heavy rain during thier playoff runs. SF or Seattle having to go play in Green Bay changes thier game plan completely. Frozen field, cold, snow, wind changes alot. Same with a team like Houston having to go to Denver or NE. The Falcons play thier game and handle buisness at home= clear run back to New Orleans to finish the job. We will not be forced to play out of our element. No other team except maybe Denver or New England may have that advantage as well.

Did anyone explicitly say "we can't beat them?" We're all very aware of how good these teams are, and we're also all very aware of how good this team is. We're just recognizing parts of their game and our game that are weaknesses and strengths. But it seems as though complements to other teams are taken as insults to our team, which I can't understand.

We're a good team, yes, but it is worth recognizing that we have the benefit of playing in an enclosed stadium in the winter months during the playoffs, as opposed to playing in outdoor stadiums, especially ones like in Seattle.

We have fared well in Seattle our last two trips as I recall. I've been to Seattle many times and I respect their fans as much as their team. It seems like we beat them there near the end of the season in 2010 to help nail down home field. That may have been the year they went beast mode on the Saints in the playoffs...the years all run together to me.
