The Falcons are back in the playoffs. Four years is not a terribly long time, but when you’re a fan of a team that came so close to a Super Bowl in 2012, it sure feels like a small eternity.
Tomorrow’s a chance to put the first check mark on Dan Quinn’s tenure as Falcons coach. Tomorrow is a chance to reverse a reputation for losing that has dogged this franchise for a long time. Tomorrow is a chance to beat the Seahawks yet again in the playoffs, which is a nice thing to do.
Here’s what you’ll need to know to watch the game tomorrow. Like you wouldn’t be watching.
