San Fran vs. Atlanta

picstitch.jpgThe 49ers are in my mind the best all around football team in the nation. I can't think of a team better then them. The Niners have veterans to lead the team and talented rookies including the likes of Aldon Smith and Collin Kaepernick. Smith leads his team by far in sacks with 19.5 and the next player on the list would be Ahmad Brooks and he has 6.5 sacks. Kaepernick came up the way a lot of rising stars have come up. They start as a backup and then they get "the call". Collin got his shot when former starting quarterback Alex Smith was injured and he came in and got the job done. In fact he did so well he got to play again and again until he was officially named the starter and the first stringer. The one wild factor for the Niners is the ability to keep the defense on their heels and guessing if they are going to run, pass, or who will run with it. Kaepernick is very good with his legs he ran for 415 yards in the regular season and he only played 13 games. Another player who keeps you guessing is Frank Gore who ran for 1,214 with 8 touchdowns and is built very strong so he can block very well for Collin to make a long run.

They are lead by quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Roddy White. White has caught 92 passes and has 1351 receiving yards, also Julio Jones has 1198 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns. The guy throwing those balls is Matt Ryan who has completed 422 passes for 4719 yards. John Abraham is one of the best defensive weapons on the Falcons, he has 10 sacks this season leading his team. He will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game at 3:00 PM EST.

I think that the Falcons have reached the end of the line and the Niners will go to the Super Bowl to play in New Orleans. Post in the comments with your game predictions.
