You do realize that the red hot NY Giants of 2011 didn't get on their winning streak until Week 16 last year? And that before then, they had lost 4 of their last 5 games, including the Rex Grossman led Redskins?
The 2010 Packers lost their last 2 games before Week 16 and their run started also.
If there is a hot team right now, it's not Atlanta...it's a team that has won 5 out of their last 6, and has put up 50 points in their last 2 games. Look out for the Seattle Seahawks....I know you guys don't want to see them in the dome.
I see it's obvious you're trolling me as you have followed me around on my last several posts, so this will be my last response to you.
The Falcons have won 4 of 5, which you conveniently omitted as you did with our shut-out of the Giants.
The Seahawks dropped 50 on the Cards and Bills, hardly the upper echelon of the NFL. Their 5 wins were against the Vikings, Jets, Bears and the two teams previously mentioned, while losing to the Dolphins. Color me unimpressed.
I would love getting Seattle in the divisional round, I think Atlanta matches-up very well against them. The only team that worries me is Green Bay, AR can light anyone up in a dome and Atlanta might not be able to keep pace.
