The Falcons have a lot of work this offseason. They have to wonder whether Tony Gonzalez will be back or was this season his last. If this is his last season what will the Falcons do at tight end. In my opinion Chase Coffman will be a nice replacement to Gonzalez. The Falcons can also mix him up in a double tight end set with a draft selection on the other side. They also have to pick up a pass rusher in this draft considering Abraham is their only past threat. There will be a lot of veterans cut to make cap room in 2013 like center Todd McClure, defensive end John Abraham, running back Michael Turner, cornerback Brent Grimes, linebacker Stephen Nicholas, left tackle Sam Baker and safety William Moore. Some of the players who will not know until after they’ve been supplanted by draft picks. Last season, the Falcons drafted fullback Bradie Ewing and released fullback Ovie Mughelli, saving more than $3 million in salary cap space. The Falcons have a lot to think about this offseason after coming short of the super bowl this season.

The Falcons have finally answered the question " Can the Falcons win a playoff game? ". The Falcons beat the Seahawks 30-28 at home this past Sunday. Matt Ryan and Tony Gonzalez finally got a playoff win in their careers. Will they be able to win again this Sunday against the dangers 49ers? They need to be able to contain the 49er's running quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers ran over the packers last week. The Falcons have to build of their momentum and come out fighting. The Falcon defense will be in trouble if John Abraham isn't able play this Sunday. He is their best pass-rusher on defense and they need him to put pressure on Kaepernick. The Falcons offense needs to make a statement in this game and keep drives alive in the second half. Last Game, the Falcons offense wasn't doing good in the second half neither was the defense. Colin Kaepernick is a good quarterback and the Falcons will have to stop him along with his dangerous offense. Will the Falcons be in the Superbowl this year only Sunday in the Georgia Dome will tell.

The Falcons play the Seahawks this weekend. This will be the match up of the week. The Falcons beat the Seahawks in their last meeting 30-28. That was in 2011 before Ryan Wilson and the improve Seahawk's defense. The Falcons haven't had much success in the playoffs the last 3 seasons. There is a lot of pressure to win this game and stop that drought. The Falcons offense presents a lot of trouble for the Seahawk's defense in this game. The Seahawks offense also presents trouble for the Falcons. The Falcons defense has been very good this year, but can they stop Ryan Wilson and his high scoring offense? Only the game Sunday will tell.
