This will be a nice little test for our favorite team, who have to avoid getting complacent after beating the defending Super Bowl champions. Considering that Mike Smith spends hours breaking down the tape if he loses to his son at checkers, I seriously doubt that's going to happen.
The Niners, meanwhile, have a new offensive coordinator and a huge chip on their shoulder after starting off the year 0-3. Teams cornered like that have a habit of being dangerous opponents, especially when they face their coach dropping his pants and giving them a waxing moon if they fail. Yikes.
Hopefully, this will be an enjoyable game for all of us here at The Falcoholic. As always, consider this your all-purpose discussion thread for the game. There's more after the jump.
Where? Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
Weather? Zip. Zero. None. Nada.
Injuries? The Falcons will be missing Erik Coleman and Michael Jenkins again, most likely. Sean Weatherspoon won't be playing either.
The 49ers have Ted Ginn listed as doubtful, but who cares? Do you? Anybody?
Foe? The friendly folks at Niners Nation will be talking about this one, as well. Go say hello.
GO FALCONS! Let's mine these 49ers for victory!
