The Falcons’ first playoff win since 2013 was especially sweet for everyone not wearing blue and green. After what seems to be a pattern of shaky starts, this team rights the ship in a hurry and gets to work. There seems to be a real plan in place here and the team’s confidence is sky high. Granted there are occasional drops and dumb mistakes, but never enough to deter the tidal wave of good things happening here on the field in Atlanta.
Our guys were dominant on offense and defensively they were a real pain in the rear for Russell Wilson. Some familiar faces made some spectacular plays on Saturday alongside our outstanding young players, helping our team ascend to the NFC Championship game. The veterans standing with the new kids….everyone is InBrotherhood.
That old label of being”soft” is just a distant memory. This team has a physicality about them that screams toughness and effort. This game was a perfect example. Michael Irvin commented that the Falcons “took the soul of Seattle” with this game. By the wild and angry looks of the Seahawks players during the game, as well as the humble acceptance of the loss at the end of the game, I have to agree.
Now we have to slay one more dragon to get to the big dance…
LET’S GO FALCONS!!
