If you were the Falcons...

... would you be rooting for the Packers to win, knowing that a Packers win means you play Tampa Bayor root for a Green Bay loss knowing that means you would play Green Bay?

Root for GB to win. You don't want to play GB at Lambeau in the postseason.

Very true. A win in TB would lead to a game in Philly. Both are better than GB, but not by much the way those teams are playing.

If that were the case, TB will probably lose at PHI, them not playing good in cold weather.

There's a 98% chance the Falcons will lose to Tampa Bay. There's a 100% chance (term "chance" used loosely) they'll lose to Green Bay at Lambeau. Guess you have to play the percentages.

If I were the Falcons I would hide my head in the sand that I lost to the Bungles and had to rely on the a NO loss to get into the Playoffs.

They could be a good spoiler in the playoffs though if they get their act together.

Falcons didn't lose to the Bungles.. Saints and Texans did.

Falcons beat Cincy 30-3 in week 3.

Not good either way because Tampa is the one team that really can defense against Vick. The fact that the Falcons essentially backed into the playoffs thanks to NO's choking doesn't help either.

Regardless, I am glad to see Vick in the playoffs. I hardly got a chance to see him this season so it will be nice to see him in the spotlight even if just for one weekend in January.
