Atlanta Falcons-Chicago Bears Open Thread

It's gametime.

We've hit this matchup pretty hard in recent days, so I don't need to go on and on about how important it is or how many Bears you need to watch or who the Falcons will start orwhat the turf is like at Soldier Field. I think everybody's just about ready now.

Still, take a moment to celebrate the fact that football is back, and the Falcons look poised to enjoy a terrific season. Maybe cheer, or fire a pistol into the air. I dunno, whatever's good for you.

Inactives:

DT Corey Peters
CB Darrin Walls
RB Antone Smith
LB Spencer Adkins
G Mike Johnson
DE Cliff Matthews

Weird that Johnson is inactive. Falcons must like Rob Bruggeman's versatility, I suppose.

Without further ado, I invite you to chat about the game. See you in the thread!
