It seems like every year at this time the experts jump on the Atlanta bandwagon. I simply don't get it especially after the Falcons disappointing end to their season last year. I could understand if they went with Carolina if they weren't going to go with us, but Atlanta? What gives?
Hey Curly, good to see you over here.

I know what you mean about them all picking the falcons. It's strange. The way I figure it, with experts "picks", if they get it wrong, it's no big deal because it's just a prediction, but if they predict a 2nd place team from the year before and get it right then they think they look smart.

... because the failcons have looked VERY good in preseason and we have looked very ordinary, the yucks and cats even worse.

... true dat, but to be fair, the Panthers did win some playoff games, even went to a a couple NFCCGs and even the SB.

Yeah but if I remember right, it was after that SB appearance that they were suppose to keep going for like 4 years.

I have to disagree with you there. They played their starters much more than we did in every game.
