Larry Brown Sports:
Atlanta Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud was so stoked about a good play he made in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game that he celebrated by doing a D-Generation X crotch chop. DeCoud had broken up a pass from Colin Kaepernick to Vernon Davis in the first quarter of the game that led to an Atlanta punt. He was so pleased with himself, he did a funky dance and ended it with an emphatic crotch chop.
The crotch chop is the signature taunt of the wresting group D-Generation X. One of the group’s leaders, Shawn Michaels, was watching the game and noticed the chop:
Did that Atlanta defender just do a DX chop?? :-)#SFvsATL

DeCoud is the same guy who once played the “Meow” game during an interview, so it’s safe to say the guy is in touch with pop culture.

Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White said the Falcons are looking to take advantage of how aggressive the 49ers play on defense.
The San Francisco 49ers are feeling good about themselves, and Vernon Davis just let everyone else know it. Coming so close in 2011, the 49ers feel they are a team of destiny and the Atlanta Falcons are merely a road block in the way. While the perception of the 49ers is that of a hard nosed group, Atlanta isn’t given much of a shot, especially from the 49ers tight end.

ATLANTA -- Mike Smith knew it could happen again.
A week ago, his Atlanta Falcons blew a 20-point lead but won through a miracle comeback in the final minute.
Again on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game, the Falcons built a big lead -- 17 points at one point. Smith said his message at that juncture was to "never let up, never give up."
"That's how you have...
A fan was stabbed in front of the Georgia Dome after getting into a fight following the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, multiple outlets are reporting.
WSB-TV says witnesses told them a Falcons fan and 49ers fan got into an argument after the game. The Falcons fan reportedly punched the 49ers fan, who responded by pulling a knife. It’s unclear who was stabbed, but reports say...
Atlanta Falcons fans are not very happy. One person has reportedly been stabbed since the team blew a 17-0 lead, and now we have this guy who pistol-whipped his TV. Yes, pistol-whipped. I like the body slam after already shattering the screen with the gun. Show that TV who’s boss! Don’t worry, Atlanta fans, you still have the Hawks. H/T Twitter
The Falcons say running back Michael Turner is questionable to return after suffering an ankle injury. Turner had run for 30 yards on 8 carries prior to the injury.
Jacquizz Rodgers will likely finish the game as the Falcons every-down running back. Expect Matt Ryan to continue to target Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez.
For me the playoffs have come down to rooting against the Atlanta Falcons and being satisfied with whatever other possible combination of results happen. In fact, I've been given the opportunity to attend the Super Bowl thanks to a close friend and I told him that I could only accept going if the Atlanta Falcons aren't in it. True story. If I had never been to one before...
Niners All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman was quick to reply when asked this week to name the biggest threat San Francisco’s rugged defense faces this week against the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game. “Their wide receivers,” Bowman said. The 49ers will have their hands full with Atlanta’s elite receivers, not to mention a rather renowned TE that can cause some problems, too.
Jay Glazer from Fox Sports reports that the Falcons are prepared to offer quarterback Matt Ryan a "mega contract" this offseason.Fantasy Spin:We could be looking at something close to the five-year, $95 million payday Peyton Manning received when he signed with the Broncos last offseason. If anybody is worth that kind of money it's Ryan, who led the Falcons to an NFL...
In the aftermath of an emotional loss, I bring you a ray of sunshine to brighten your day. Thomas DeCoud and William Moore have been added to the NFC Pro Bowl. So congrats to #28 and #25 on a great season. Moore is a key free agent this off-season and being named to a Pro Bowl will raise his price. This is the first Pro Bowl for both of these fine Falcons safties. In other...
