Believe it or not but with the second round of the NFL Playoffs just a few days away, only eight combined players for both the Falcons and Seahawks were listed on the Wednesday injury report.
How can the Atlanta Falcon faithful believe their team will beat the Seattle Seahawks this weekend? Two simple words…
If Atlanta didn’t already have hopes to beat Seattle yesterday, with the announcement of Chris Clemons torn ACL and meniscus, they certainly do now.
With the end of the NFL regular season, coaches who have failed to live up to expectations often find themselves looking for a new job. So far seven NFL teams need a new head coach. With the recent success of the Falcons, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter is a candidate for several of those coaching vacancies.
Anyone who has paid attention to Mike Smith during his tenure in Atlanta knows that unless he is under a mandate from the NFL, he’s not going to released any injury information. So for those wanting new updates on the players, you’ll just have to wait until next week.
With an extra week off before their next game, the Falcons need to remember the positives when a teammate is injured. With Dunta Robinson and John Abraham injured in Week 17, the training staff has good news for Falcons Nation about their return.

Setting a new NFL record is always a rare and special moment because it rarely happens. However, the Falcons seem to insist on some of the most recent records only being broken when they’re the opposition.
