Thursday will be the third chance our Falcons have at an "elite" team this year. We lost the first away vs. the Steelers (in OT), We won the second away vs. the Saints, and now we have a chance to bloody our thirsty beak in the Ravens. I have been waiting a long time for this game. It is a litmus test for our beloved falcons. If we want to be deep playoff contenders we are going to have win this game. We couldn't ask for a better situation (Ravens have to travel on a short week to play in a Dome that the falcons suddenly become invincible). Am I nervous? hell ya! This game either legitimatizes the falcons or keeps them as a flickering flash in the pan. I would rather lose to a "not so good" team away then to let the Ravens come in and have there way with us on a short travel week, in the national spot light.
We can hand the ravens there hind ends on a platter, and we should. Everyone of us is thirsty for a pounding ( players and fans)and here comes the Ravens, on a Thursday, only game on T.V. This is our moment. To walk all over the nation and make our stand as a force to be reckoned with. If there ever was a time to "Rise Up" now is the time!
