The Falcons didn't have John Abraham in the second half of that game, when he was in there, Seattle was shut out. Russell Wilson is amazing and that same Seattle team destroyed the 49ers just a few weeks ago yet Atlanta has no chance. Just like Atlanta had no chance against Seattle. Or the Giants. At what point does beating every team on your schedule get you any credit with you Fing idiots? Especially you, you are the biggest **** on this board. Did Matt Ryan F your girlfriend while he was at BC because you have a hard on for hating the Falcons, that's for sure.
The Falcons have a chance,but Imo they'd have to be at least +2 in the turnover stat to win this game. Like it or not,the matchups heavily favor the
Niners The Niners have the best O-Line in the league. That point isn't even up for debate. They also have a huge advantage in the defensive front
seven. The Falcons O-Line has struggled in pass protection this year and the Niners are the last team you want to do this against. If the Niners keep
forcing Ryan out of the pocket and make him throw on the run,it will be a long day for your Falcons. I also think you're putting too much stock into
that Seattle win over SF. They were coming off an emotional win against NE on the road and then had to face a Div. opponent on the road again
with a short week of preparation. Most games are decided in the trenches and SF has the advantage on both lines of scrimmage.
Vegas set the opening line at SF - 3.5. When was the last time you saw a Home team being a underdog in the conference championship game? I'm not
a huge betting man,but I do know the boys in Vegas don't make these odds based on emotion. I know the line is also made to balance betting on both
sides. Bookies make their money collecting from the losers and the commissions from the winners. That said,they feel the Niners are simply a better
team than the Falcons. On a neutral field,the Niners would be -7 and if this game was played in SF,they'd be -10 or more.. Will the Falcons prove
Vegas wrong? We'll find out Sunday.
