Now Giants win that game and they are pretty much in the playoffs if I remember correctly so it was an important game. It says something about Atlanta to put down a team like the Giants 34-0. I realize the giants didn't have the pass rush of prior years but it concerns me that they lost that big and I still thought it was interesting to listen to his thoughts on the show
Also interesting when you remember the Giants were supposed to totally dominate that game. Most of the pre-game hype had them going in and rolling Atlanta. Part of that whole "this is December, when the Giants suddenly start playing invincible football in their inevitable march to the playoffs and another strong post season" yada yada yada.
That was a statement game for Atlanta. Now they're faced with "Atlanta can't win in the playoffs" schtick. Don't think they don't have a chip the size of Titanic's iceberg on their shoulders going into this one.
Sailor you could not be more correct. The Falcons will not only be playing for but "playing to" their home crowd and will
ride said schtick for all it's worth. This is going to be a very tough game.
A game of "keepaway" with Marshawn might work. Wouldn't like to see a shootout which I feel would work to
Atlanta's advantage. Seahawks are certainly capable of winning this game but will have to overcome both a home
crowd and a team playing with a lot of attitude.
