Washington Post: Are The Falcons Dangerous?

Who is the one team you do not want to play in the NFC playoffs? I didn't even discuss the Green Bay Packers because they've got to earn a trip to the playoffs first. It's a better question when asked, which is the one team you don't want the Packers to play in the playoffs? 

I came up with the Falcons because I had to pick a team. At the Washington Post:

There is a lot to like about the Falcons. They have one of the best offenses in the NFC with a much improved defense from last season. Unless they trip over the 50 yard line next Sunday when they host the awful Panthers, they'll also have a first-round bye and home field throughout the playoffs. Another rarely noticed fact is that the Falcons are very healthy, with only four players on injured reserve and not one of those players has started a game this season. And their fans seemed to make a lot of noise in support last Sunday, despite the losing results to the Saints.
