Almost all of America, other than most of SEC country (what the hell, Florida?) and New Hampshire (where The Falcoholic's Dave Choate apparently wields astounding local influence), expects the Green Bay Packers to beat the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night. Remember the last time you heard that?â†µ
In the official volume of revisionist history it's Brian Finneran's punt block that secured the victory, with Michael Vick contributing very little to the first postseason loss by the Pack in Lambeau Field history. It wasn't Finneran that blocked that punt, you say? Right, I just tried to tell you we've rewritten the history of this game.â†µ
Even still, did you remember the Falcons were up 20-0 at one point in that game? I remembered it being a heavy Birds advantage from the get-go, but I didn't recall it being that big.â†µ
The Falcons aren't even underdogs this time around, but it's interesting that so much non-gambling public opinion leans so hard Green Bay's way.
