Super Bowl LIII is almost here, folks. In just a few days, we’ll get the see the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots clash in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Atlanta has been hosting a great Super Bowl this week, and we can only hope that the game lives up to the awesome pre-game festivities. And also that the Rams destroy the Patriots on Sunday, so we don’t have to watch Brady win yet another ring—this time in our stadium.

Ex-Falcons QB Mike Vick has created a video message for Falcons fans about this weekend’s Super Bowl. In the video, entitled “Dear Atlanta...”, Vick implores Falcons fans to enjoy the game—regardless of the fact that the Patriots are in it.

Obviously, I’m not sure the video will sit well with all fans. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick aren’t exactly popular people among those of us that cheer on the Falcons. But, as Vick said, this is an opportunity to watch two of the greatest football minds in the business compete against each other. Whatever you think about Tom Brady personally, you can’t argue against the fact that he’s the best (or at least, close to it) to ever play the game.

Me, personally? I’m going to attempt to enjoy the game, beer in hand and delicious food in belly. The Rams have a good shot at winning this game—people didn’t have much faith in the Eagles last season, either—and it’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top between the young phenom in Sean McVay and the grizzled, battle-tested veteran in Bill Belichick.

What are your thoughts, Falcons fans? Do you agree with Vick’s assessment? What are your plans for Super Bowl Sunday?
