I couldn't be more pumped for this game if I was a pair of Rebooks belonging to an OCD nine-year-old. The playoffs certainly bring out that spirit.

I can tell you that I expect a close game here in the Georgia Dome, but I also expect the Falcons to win. I recognize that some analysts find them a boring team, or perhaps even an unworthy one, but all I see is a complete football team scrabbling at the door of greatness. They're gonna break that lock.

Anything further I could say would get in the way of the grand visions you undoubtedly have swirling in your head. Crack open your adult beverage of choice, kick back and enjoy this one. You don't end up as the #1 seed in the NFC every day, after all.

One more quick note. If the Falcons win, don't go over to Acme Packing Company and taunt. Fair warning to Packers fans who would do the same here.

GO FALCONS!
