NFC Championship Game 2013: 49ers vs. Falcons open thread

New, comments

You don't have anything better to do, so watch some NFL Playoff football.

Coulda been us, you guys. Oh well. Football is still cool, and as long as it's on, I'm still going to watch it. Both championship games should be very good. Things get started in the NFC, with the San Francisco 49ers playing the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.

I have a feeling that the Falcons aren't going to have much more success stopping Colin Kaepernick's running than the Packers did. They let Russell Wilson run the ball effectively last week, and he was handing the ball off on almost every read option play. He also isn't anywhere near as fast as Kaepernick. Additionally, 'Matty Ice' had a couple of very bad interceptions before the game-winning drive and just generally looked like the choker he has been for a while.

And come on, don't you want a Harbaugh Bowl if we're not going to be in the Super Bowl?
