Game two is here. The Falcons started the season 0-1, but they can reverse their fortunes in a hurry by beating the Eagles tonight. Of course, the Eagles are going to be a very real challenge. The Falcons, thankfully, have home field advantage and plenty of motivation after being embarrassed on the road last week. The team will have to keep Matt Ryan on his feet, run the ball effectively and clamp down on the Eagles' offense to win. All very possible, if a bit difficult. Believe it or not, I'm more optimistic about this one than I was earlier in the week. No idea why. Discuss the game. I'll join you in the thread and get new ones up as needed. GO FALCONS!
