The Atlanta Falcons, the hated rival of our New Orleans Saints, could punch their Super Bowl ticket on Sunday. Does the thought of that make you sick? I thought so.
However: Atlanta has a lot going for it. They are underdogs at home. Don’t think the lack of respect card isn’t being thrown on the table.
And, the Falcons have finally broken through for a first playoff win for head coach Mike Smith and quarterback Matt Ryan.
The 49ers are very good, but I don’t see a quarterback with 7 starts winning the NFC title on the road.
New Orleans, say hello to Atlanta.
