    The Falcons Stadium is behind schedule for completion so who knows if this game will even happen there.

    Didn't the liquor store clerk end up being right? I remember it had something to do with Mike Jenkins.

    Probably would be staring at 0-1 but last year proved that was no obstacle. The good news is that the Falcons offense is almost certainly going to regress this year after fielding one of the top units in league history last year. The league could be really mean to us if they wanted us to have a tough start, but that may not be bad as I like having the easier part of the schedule in the second half.

    That would make 6 of our last 7 games night games.

    I'm seriously sick of that crap.

    Wonder how the Falcons come out this season after their complete collapse in the SB. They may not be the same team. Hard to recover from a loss like that.

    Not my first choice. But still better than the Giants.

    They are going to want ratings on the opening Sunday night and would like to show off the new stadium. Do you give that game to a team who holds 8 out of the top 10 most viewed Sunday night games ever or do you give it to a team that nobody gives a **** about outside of Louisiana?

    Any hotel recommendations in Atlanta?

    NFC Champs in their new stadium... I say bring it on. No better way to establish our dominance of the conference.

    To "Philly Troll Realist"

    Only because "I'm a Philly Troll and I don't have any Friends so I Try To Upset Cowboys Fans Just For Fun Realist" is just too long.

    Curling can be a real nailbiter. Some couldn't handle that either.

    Odds are we'd lose to the falcons but we'd get to see our new defense against the best offense right off the bat. We can see what they're made of.

    What should be news: the new stadium's opening day has been pushed back for the 3rd time; now Aug 26. The former Georgia Dome, originally scheduled to be razed in July, now postponed indefinitely.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...ew-stadium-target-date-pushed-back-to-aug-26/

    Man, the team choked in the SB, and now the builders are choking on the new digs.

    I think Dallas should avoid the place until October, if not November. Let the Giants or Redskins test the place.

    I wouldn't mind it- especially the night game.

    Its fun to be able to switch through all the other games and check up on your fantasy team and then watch our team play.

    The lack of sleep kills me though!

    This is exactly what I've been hoping for. I'm going to the Falcons game and I'm ready to get my hotel down the street reseved. I'll get the tickets later.

    I guess we'll know tonight by about 8:10.
