    I want atlanta to win, just b/c worst case scenario id like for Gonzalez to get his ring, and b/c of the non-pats teams remaining id like the falcons to take it if pats dont

    i dont see much diff b/w who is easier matchup, after what SF did to us in reg. season i think they would NOT want to play the Pats again, b/c we are NOT the texans, and we will come mad

    Falcons. Way better of a matchup, plain and simple.

    Falcons

    But I think if we controlled the ball against SF we could do damage on them.

    this... but I don't really care about opponent, I just don't want to hear the Kaepernick hype for 2 weeks.

    I don't much care. I want us to take care of business, and then worry about whoever wins.

    But a few thoughts:

    1. Getting revenge on SF would be nice. They're a good team, but I think the Pats would execute much better the 2nd time around.

    2. OTOH, I'd love to see both Harbaughs go home empty-handed again.

    Plain, simple and correct, in my opinion.

    I do not care who we face in the Superbowl, although I am sick of the Kaepernick.. sooner or later BB or other Defensive Genius will figure out how to contain him and he will then be a "developing" quarterback.

    No Jersey Selected

    This and that I also don't want any chance of having to hear about a Harbaugh v. Harbaugh Superbowl should the worst case scenario for the Pats happen.

    It's gonna be tough match-ups for either AFC team against either NFC team. You got a fast QB in SF and two matchup nightmares at WR for ATL.

    I guess if we win, I would prefer Atlanta because their defense isn't as great as the Niners and their running game isn't as strong.

    Well, my prediction for the Sunday's games are New England over Baltimore and Atlanta over San Fransisco. So, to answer your question, I want Atlanta to win to avoid playing the better defensive team. Or, to put it a different way, Atlanta's defense is just as suspect as New England's. Besides, my feeling is the network would want the match-up that would present the highest scoring output. I think that can happen if it's New England versus Atlanta in the Super Bowl. As far as story-lines go, you still have the fact that Matt Ryan attended Boston College and Atlanta's general manager, Thomas Dimitroff, was a scout for Cleveland (while Belichick was head coach) and New England.

    Speaking of scoring, did anyone else read about this?

    Falcons. Better match up for the Pats.

    Wouldn't mind 49ers win though.

    I think Pats roll either one.

    Falcons. Look at that SOS, they haven't really beaten anyone except SF apparently. SF is way more balanced too. Hope ATL rides that huge homefield to the Super Bowl, hope we join em, hope we win out.

    Falcons...... No Pass Rush and I think we'd make the game a snoozer against them.

    Don't get me wrong, I think we'd beat the 9ers too, but I just think Atlanta is a worse team. Of course, watching this game, the niners defense looks really suspect.
