The #2 seeded 49ers travel to Atlanta to face the #1 seeded Falcons.


The Falcons will be huge underdogs next week. Just like how the Ravens were against the Broncos. I believe it will be a lot closer then many will think.

I think the 49ers will win, but we'll see how Ryan can play in his first championship game, coming off his first win. And how Kaepernick will play on his first road playoff game.

I think it will be a classic! For the sake of the Ravens, I say go Falcons!!


Who do you think will win, and who do you want to win?

It will be interesting to see how the Falcons add on to their first post season win with Ryan. I voted Falcons to win, but I would like to see the 49ers win for the possibility of a Harbowl in the Superbowl.

I know a Har-Bowl sounds great, but, eh, we're not exatcly built to deal with qbs with Kaeps speed. I'd rather deal with Ryan so Joe can take the 08 qb crown and have Ray and Ed ride off into the sunset. Truth is, we don't even know how much longer we will have Suggs or Ngata for. There is a good chance this could be Suggs last ride too with the injuries he's acquired. When Suggs pushed to come back, then Ngata played through the MCL, I thought something was up. I was trying to figure why people would play through these injuries. When I heard Ray was coming back I knew what the deal was immediately. I knew this was it for him and they knew it too. The Niners secondary can be exposed, but the front 7 somewhat worries me, even with the Smith injury. Then our problem with the run and having to contain 7 opens up new problems. I'd rather the pocket passer Ryan vs Ed Reed, but I think SF wins.

Before the season started I thought it would be a Ravens vs Falcons superbowl....I think it will be extremely tough for the Falcons to beat them. It all depends if they can stop Kaepernick on the ground.
49ers just shut Rodgers down so.....


But let's see them on the road for the first time. This year all their losses have came on the road besides the whopping the Giants gave them.

This shouldn't even be a contest. The much lesser talented Seahawks took Atlanta to the brink. The Falcons are soft, top to bottom, and will get whooped.

Seahawks destroyed the 49ers earlier. Even though it was in Seattle which is the toughest place to play, the 49ers have struggled on the road. I don't know about Kaepernick on the road in the playoffs.

I think it will be closer then people think. You know what, I'm taking Falcons. 35-34!

To the OP... I cant lie.... Im a Falcon fan and i even know this will be a tough tough game for us... I think we can do it but Its going to be really tough... Kaepernick is the worst match up for us.



I team D is built to give Qb's like Brees, Both Mannings...... Pocket passers problems like we've done this year... But Mobile QB's like Wilson, Cam, and Kaepernick is not a good matchup for us.

So? The 49ers had beaten them earlier in the year. The 49ers also lost (and tied) to the Rams, does that make the Falcons less soft? San Fransisco has more talent, better coaching, and is more physical.

I almost want the Falcons to win, just to shut up all the bandwagon Kaepernick fans. Plus, it would be great to see Flacco humiliate Ryan on the game's biggest stage, thus ending forever the debate over who's the better QB! :SPINgigem:

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

Kaepernick is the flavor of the week. He's gonna get figured out. Some think he's better than Ryan or Flacco.... really?

Falcons. Julio Jones, White, Douglas and Tony are too much for them to handle. Kapernick will be figured out

I have one question for the Falcons,

What you going to do when Colin Kaepernick runs wild on your defense?

OK so everyone talks about the fact that we played the Eagles in their first home game and the fact the team who has faced the Eagles in their first home game goes on to win the Super Bowl. The NFC has its own little history, but with the AFC East. Which means past history says a Ravens vs 49ers Super Bowl is very likely.

Not to discourage Atlanta, because it does have home-field advantage Sunday, but San Francisco might just be destined to be NFC champion, based on its schedule. In each of the past six seasons, an NFC team from the division that played its non-division games against the AFC East during the regular season has wound up in the Super Bowl. In 2006, the Bears played their non-division games against the AFC East and advanced to the Super Bowl; in 2007, the Giants did it; in 2008, the Cardinals did it; in 2009, the Saints did it; in 2010, the Packers did it; and last season, the Giants did it again.

This season, San Francisco played its non-division games against the AFC East, which seems to mean the 49ers must be considered the favorite to become the NFC champion. Next season, the honor falls to the NFC South and the Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers and Panthers. Any one of those teams might have a real advantage and shot to make it to the 2014 Super Bowl in New Jersey.
