It's time to get back in the saddle, this time against a tough defensive team that would like very much to prove it's a contender. Sound familiar?
It's been a crazy week around The Falcoholic, so I apologize for the lack of a couple of familiar features. The important thing is that we're here today to (hopefully) witness a good game where the Falcons keep pace with the New Orleans Saints. In order to keep up in a competitive NFC playoff race (and yes, I know it's early), we better start piling those wins up early. Let's hope for 3-1.
See you guys in the game thread. May the Falcons kick butt!
Where? Candlestick Park ,San Fransisco, California
Weather? Sunny with a chance of Niners fans flooding the field with their tears.
Fun Fact? For the really young Falcons fans on this site, the Niners were once a hated division rival who made our lives miserable for quite a long time. What makes this fact fun, of course, is if we destroy them on Sunday and return the favor.
Injuries? Hat tip to the Official Site for their report. Jason Elam and Jerious Norwood are probable and virtual locks to play, while special teamer Antoine Harris is out. Hopefully we won't miss him too much for one game. The biggest names on the Niners end are Frank Gore (who's out) and LB Marques Harris (who is questionable).
Odds? San Fransisco over Atlanta 2.5, O/U 40.5
Foe? The talented Fooch and his merry band of trash talkers will be discussing the game over at Niners Nation. Be good sports if you head that way.
GO FALCONS! Let's give these Niners fool's gold!
