Can you talk about the Falcons game coming up on Monday night and if there’s a little extra motivation added to this game?

“For you guys, yes. For us, it’s the most important game of the year. It’s the next game that we can play and obviously the significance of this game is huge in that we still stay alive for the second seed, and if we win this game we win the division which is huge. Obviously, Atlanta is one of our rival teams so we want to beat them.”

Do you get a little more motivated to specifically play the Falcons with how close the matchups have been in recent years?

“It’s a situation in which it’s a divisional game, so we’re familiar with one another. Neither team wants to lose to the other. That’s just kind of how it is. People get bragging rights, but we’re more focused on letting it be one game. We can’t make it bigger than what it is. Like I said before, it’s an extremely important game but we can’t put any extra pressure or stress on ourselves for this game. We just have to go out and play.”

Does this feel like last year in reverse with the standings going into this game?

“I hope not because we went in there and were able to get that win late in the season. The situation is obviously similar in that we’re the one that’s in the lead in the division and we can lock up the division with this win. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get that done.”

Do you think you guys are as locked in as ever right now on the offensive side of the ball?

“I think we’re playing well right now, but if you look at just the last game, we had a bunch of penalties and those two turnovers. We can get better offensively and those numbers can get even better. Our stress this week will be taking care of the ball, which we’ve done for the most part in this stretch run that we’ve had excluding the last game. We’ll try to eliminate some of those penalties and definitely try to right that ship before the end of the season.”

What does it say about the team when you make those mistakes and still win by 22 points?

“You kind of have to look at each game. Minnesota is a team that’s struggling with injuries and depth at a lot of different positions, so that game is going to be different from Tennessee where you go on the road and have to struggle to win that game. Each game is different, but it is kind of encouraging that we’ve had those mistakes in the past couple of weeks and we’re still able to come up with big wins. We just need to kind of put it together in a complete manner so that all sides of the ball play well and hopefully we can do that moving forward.”

What does it say about a game like St. Louis and you can’t overcome those mistakes?

“It’s the NFL. Any team can beat you any given Sunday if you don’t come to play.”

Lance Moore didn't indicate he was especially anxious. I think he said precisely the right things and that he is focussed for the next game. Well that is my take on it. Maybe deep down, he wants to get his TD dance right.

They will be worried about Lance Moore, and he'll be running his routes as a DECOY! LOL

With as many weapons as we have, this CANNOT be a close game. It always USED TO be that way, but we've never been this HEALTHY!!!

I'm getting shat-cited just thinking about it!! LOL

I think Atlanta should be anxious. Anxiety is not a good thing I don't care how you look at it. I don't believe that Lance is anxious in the least. Excited would be a better word. Revved up.......maybe. Optimistic......definitely.

STOKED

ANXIETY is something I get when the coffee pot is near-empty.
