Do you guys think we have the NFC South title wrapped up already? With Panthers 1-4, Buccs 1-3 and Saints at the moment 0-4 is it safe to say we have it won already. I think we do, at 5-0 there is no catching us this year. Play-offs here we come.

You have a good head start but have beaten nobody of any consequence yet. Lose a couple of divisional games and you could find that lead pegged back

So far so good for Atlanta. Regardless of the quality of opponents you can only beat whose out there in front of you. Play-Offs look a very strong possibilty already.

Getting a win in the NFL shouldn't be taken for granted no matter what your schedule is. Just ask Green Bay about that with their recent loss to a not well regarded Indy team.

Thanks for that mate?
yes i agree with what you say!
and for all the other doubters we`ve won away to Washington San diago and Chiefs
But our next 6 out of 7 will be more of a challenge admit?
Raiders home
Eagles away
Cowboys home
Saints away
Cardinals home
Buccs away
Saints home
then we`ll see where we are at
but in a good place at the moment..

It has been a good start so far, but like others have said, the schedule goes up a notch after the bye.

One thing that has been annoying me is this notion that we aren't good playing on the road, particularly on nfluk podcasts.

NFC South - Probable
NFC Championship - Possible

Cannot see any of our divisional rivals getting more then 8 wins so we only need to win four more games to be NFC South Champs imo.

More lies from the media that seems to have an unwarranted and irrational hatred of the Falcons.

Unless I am mistaken, we are 20-15 on the road since 2008.i bet that there are very few teams with better road record than that over the same span.

Well we should be able to get a win against the Raiders, although they do have a habbit of playing better against better teams.

When I saw the thread title 'NFC Champions' I assumed it must be a 49ers thread!

Eagles: 20-14
Falcons: 20-15
Jets: 18-16

I fancy the bears could get to the superbowl this year. Falcons will make the play offs and lose :D

Making the playoffs and loosing in the NFC championship game is something i could live with.

Really? Losing the championship game is the same as not getting to the playoffs-a season with nothing to show for it

Yeah, I am saying this in mid-October, come January, if this was the case, i'd probably not be a happy camper.

Win the NFC South to get into the play-offs then start thinking about winning a play-off game.

A long way to go but you should win it.

As for NFC Champs....that even further to go. Your big chance was the year we made the SB, poor start and we held on.

True enough, and the next step on that road is to beat the Raiders tomorrow.

Apparently it's a given that we'll be one and done according to some. I guess we might as well just not bother playing any more games in that case.

That seems to be the opinion of fans of certain teams, come January i'm hoping we'll be meeting and beating those teams.
