The Falcons’ sack leader, defensive end John Abraham, who missed last week’s game against the St. Louis Rams, played against the Green Bay Packers and had one sack.

He suffered a groin injury about two weeks ago. He played against Baltimore with the injury and recorded two sacks.

He tried to play last week, but after working out two hours before kickoff the coaching staff decided to make him inactive.

I’d love a clear-cut, by more than one score, domination of GB. Let’s shut up all those guys who say the Falcons got “lucky” against NO, Balt, TB. Falcons, this is your chance to show the rest of the NFL the road to the Superbowl runs through Atlanta.

And don’t forget the Roddy strip of the PICK6 by Matty Ice in the final minutes vs San Fran.

And don’t forget the BIG blown lead vs Bengals.

And don’t forget the loss to the 3rd qb for the Steelers.

DOL – Love you, man, but you might want to check yourself on this sentence from the game story:

The Falcons needed only 20 yards to get into Bryant’s range. Ryan, throwing quick passes to Roddy White and Michael Jenkins, and two to Harry Douglas, moved the Falcons to the 29 before Bryant was summoned and executed.

Down the stretch, we are favored to win out. Come to the dome, the home of MR2 and RW84 where we will have homecourt advantage throughout the playoff. The NFC super bowl contenders must come through the Georgia Dome.

Abe was unable to get up after chasing Rodgers on GB’s touchdown late in the game. He looked either spent or hurting, or both.
