A decision that could change the game?

If you are the Atlanta Falcons would you rather be on offense or defense first?

I think this is a crucial part of what takes place Sunday. Would you rather have the ball and try your luck against the Seahawks defense that we have heard so much about or put the defense out there to slow down Marshawn Lynch and have ball at halftime.

I personally would want to have the ball at halftime, for one, the Falcons defense has started well in big games such as Broncos, Saints, Giants and it would be great to be in Russell Wilson's head with the dome screaming "SPOOOOOOONNNNN". But if the defense can't contain Lynch or the read option the Falcons could still recover at halftime.

But, if the Falcons do get the ball to start the game, they have the opportunity to get the dome rocking and rocking early. The offense could get a crucial lead that is vital to all games, playoffs no exception. On the other hand if the Seahawks D lives up to the hype and causes a turnover or a bad first outing, look for the Dome to be shot.

What would you do? Why?
