My Way to Late But Still Want to Do NFC Preview and Picks
I have 2 players that I can say that I actually liked that have ever played for the Atlanta Falcons
- Bill Goldberg
How can you not he was actually a good player and of course I was a HUGE WCW fan.
2. Steve Deberg
If you don’t know Steve Deberg he finally landed on the Falcons when he was 44 years old in 1998 after he had been retired since 1993. Let that sink in for a minute. He actually played in one game when Chandler couldn’t go. So for some Trivia challenge oldest guy to ever play in a game? It’s this guy. He also is the oldest player ever on a super bowl roster at 45.
I don’t feel like going position to position on this one. I’m just going to tell you why I think ATL is going to cover the -5 spread this week.
The Falcons Average 33.9 points a game this year They have scored over 30 points 12 times this year and over 40 points 5 times this year. Truly a remarkable year.
In the Packers win streak going back 8 games they averaged 32 points a game. I could go back all year and it’s going to be a lot less because they threw some absolute stinkers on the field the first 10 weeks.
The Atlanta’s Wr core is ranked 1st in the NFL. The Packers pass defense is 30th in the NFL, getting torched this year by Mathew Stafford (385), Marcus Mariota (295), Kirt Cousins (375). I would say that Matt Ryan is about 1000 times better, you know MVP of the league this year, and the Packers corners stink.
As you can see in this video Vic Beasley who is the Atlanta Falcons BEAST of a LB beat Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick in the 40 at the combine. This guy had 15.5 sacks this year in his sophomore season.
He will be going against this guy.
This is the Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari.
Great Match up that could decide the game. If Vic is in Rodgers face all day this game will be over. If not then i’m just going to say last team to have the ball wins cause packers Defense is ranked 30th in pass defense the ATL’s is ranked 28th. Either way I will be wishing the Packers nothing but the worst of luck because I hate them.
Happy Divisional Championship Weekend. I’m obviously taking the over of a ridiculous 61 right now and like I said ATL -5 at home.
PS I lied I have one more Falcon that I liked
