    The weekend is almost here and I can't take much more discussion about what some Jet just said. The real NFL news over the next 45 hours will be the first three games of this weekend, so I'm going to go ahead and start threads on each of those games now.

    #6 Green Bay Packers (11-6) at #1 Atlanta Falcons (13-3)
    Saturday January 15 at 8:00 p.m. EST on FOX
    Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will announce the game on TV
    Pam Oliver and Chris Myers are the sideline reporters
    Ian Eagle, Tony Boselli and Scott Kaplan will do the radio broadcast

    Atlanta is currently favored by 2 to 2½
    Over under is from 43½ to 44 points
    The Money Line has Green Bay from +108 to +120; Atlanta -128 to -140

    Even though Atlanta is nearly unbeatable at home, I have Green Bay taking this one 24-21 and advancing to the NFC Championship game. Really, I don't see a team in the NFC that can compete with them, especially when their running game is going the way it was going last week.

    I agree my money would be on the Pack, as well for the NFC. I think all 6 of their losses were by 7 points or less. Correct me if I am wrong (too lazy to go look it up right now).

    If we can beat them at home the Pack can. They are not a better team. They are not even better than us.

    I think this game features the next great quarterback rivalry when all is said and done between Manning and Brady and I expect at least 2 or 3 super bowls to be won between these two very talented and good looking young QBs in the near future..hopefully not this year :cool:

    I really think Aaron has done great things with a very injury plagued roster but I see Atlanta just being too damn tough at home and well rested at that.

    I think the Pack will not have any answers for a hungry Tony Gonzalez who is about as close to getting to a Super Bowl as he has ever Been before...this will be a monster game for Gonzalez and Roddy White and let's not forget Turner.

    This is the reason we beat the falcons. 9-2 sense Brees/payton 4-1 at thier home. They believe in big players, like most teams. They only have white,turner, and gonz. You shut those down they lose. Thats what we did vs them at home last time, and with all due respect thats what we did vs you last year.

    Your offense was Moss,Faulk, and Welker. We stopped that, and it worked.
    Patriots offense has morphed into a saints system. Still trying to figure out how that happened, but your now a " you cant cover everyone offense", like ours.
    No big names just good players, and a lot of targets for brady.

    The packs defense is better than ours, thats not saying much from the last game, but they are. Its not going to be hard for them to cover gonz and white, like we did.
    And they can contain turner better than we did, they have a better front 4.

    So what will ryan do? He choked vs us, and you know the pack is studying our tape. Believe me the falcons have no answer for this, look at their Pitt game also, their conventional. Rogers dosnt care who he's throwing to, ryan needs rhythm and WR he knows.

    If the Pack can hold them like we did, but break the line , falcons are done. We hardly broke there OL. Its an interesting match up.

    You're right. I still think Atlanta will prevail some way in the end though. This will be 1 hellva game. Brees,Rodgers & Ryan are the top 3 QB's in the NFC IMO.

    Man falcons are the #1 seed but it seems like they are the underdog. Everyone is picking the packers. I'll take matty ice leading the team down the field for a game winning touchdown to roddy white. Falcons 23-20.

    Seems to me as if Atlanta is the underdog based on everyones picks. I think they've flown under the radar this season and have a solid team which doesn't beat themselves with mistakes. If the Falcons were to win the NFC I would be very afraid to potentially match up against them in a Super Bowl.

    Even with the way the Packers played against us I feel Bill would prepare a better gameplan and has more film against Aaron Rodgers if we had to face them again.

    With that being said I think the Packers will win a close game 31 - 27

    Atlanta will crush Green Bay, book it.
    Have people forgot how good Atlanta was in the season, just because they lost a close game to the saints?
