Finally, the NFC is down to the two final teams that many had been anticipating for quite some time. While I had the Niners getting bounced last week just like I had back in the preseason, I still believed the Falcons would find a way to get the job done.
They have done just that and now they have to take on arguably the best team in all of football. Their defense is flat out dirty with four superstars earning All-Pro honors.
Defensive tackle Justin Smith is not one of the four with his battle of partially torn triceps (he did make Second Team All-Pro), but Aldon Smith is still one of the biggest freaks of the NFL.
