Would you rather play falcons in their Dome or seahawks at the stick???

Would you rather play falcons in their Dome or seahawks at the stick???

In the last 8 years, every team that has defeated the Falcons in the playoffs have went on to the Super Bowl. Just a weird fact to throw out there.
I'm picking Seahawks to win this one folks.

I had Minnesota in Week 17. I was 4-0 last week.
I think Falcons win, although I want to face Seattle. Last week vs the Skins, had it not been for RGIII tweaking his knee in that second scoring drive, the Skins would've won. Also, Lynch is hobbled with an ankle injury, for someone that runs as hard as he does, that's gotta limit him.
I would rather have the Seahawks plane go down mid flight. Other than that I would like to get the Falcons in their place because I hate to be cocky but that is pretty much a gimme win. The Seahawks we would probably beat but still would rather avoid that one.

I would take either one, I think the Niners can beat both of them. I would prefer the Seachickens at the Stick. I think the players want a chance to stick it to them for trip to the Super Bowl!
The Niners lost three NFC Championships after they took it in 89' and before they took it in again in 94'. The old school Niner fans are truly jaded. This drama the new aged fans are going throught must be nothing compared to the earlier years. I wouldn't say nothing.

Atlanta. I think our defense matches up well against their offense. And I just don't think Kap can beat the Seahawks defense.

I agree Kap was so lost in that game.
Atlanta. We beat them up.

The Niners have lost conference championships 7 times in the modern era. They lost two with Brodie as QB in '70 and '71. They lost two with Montana as QB. And, they lost three with Young as QB. They've lost a total of 18 playoff games. Going into the '87 playoffs, the team had the #1 offense and the #1 defense in the league with Montana at QB, Rice and Taylor at receivers and Rathman and Craig as running backs. The defense was filled with pro bowl players. They got knocked out at the Stick in the first round by the Vikings, who were a wild card team. In '86, they won the division and then in their first playoff game, they went to play the Giants and got wiped out 49-3 (remember, this is the team that came back the next year with the #1 O and #1 D).

So, I wouldn't call old school Niner fans "jaded." If anything an old school Niner fan should have a realistic view of what can happen in the playoffs and what it means to a team for the short and long term.

This. I would rather make sure we even have a game next week and after that, find out who we play next.

The '87 playoff game I mentioned above was a perfect example of that. With the #1 O and the #1 D, everyone in town was talking about who the NIners would face in the Superbowl before they played their first playoff game. That was the day Eddie D. when ballistic after the game and knocked over the Coke machine.

You should really try enjoying football rather than worrying yourself to death. The fans can do what they want, the niners are not looking forward.

So true. I guarantee you that every one of them is focused on the Packers and nothing elese.
