The wild card weekend is over,it's time to separate the men from the boys. Weaknesses that can be hidden on a normal Sunday, will be exposed like George Clinton at an insurance seminar. Atlanta has been very good, dominant at times (just ask the Giants). What does 13-3 and the number one seed in the playoffs buy you? Not a lot of respect if you are the Falcons.People view them as a finesse team.Finesse dosen't buy much respect.
Seattle on the other hand, everyone seems to respect. Ever since they beat the Bear in Chi-town, they have been rolling teams, smashing teams, embarrassing teams (that's you, 49ers). They are the power to Atlanta's finesse. People fear power. People Respect it. It makes people forget you lost to the Lions. And the Dolphins.
This game will come down to whoever can impose their will and force the other to play their game. They are both great football teams, but the similarities stop there.
