JANUARY 24TH

Football takes you to weird and wonderful places, with the dominate victory of the Atlanta Falcons over the Green Bay Packers yesterday, it will take Blake to Reliant Stadium in Houston in 2 weeks time for a chance to win the Superbowl.

 


Arguably the most single recognized sporting event in the world, the Atlanta Falcons will play in their 2nd ever Superbowl against the New England Patriots; the most successful team of the modern era. The Falcons have never won a Superbowl, the Patriots will be attempting to win their 5th in 8 attempts.

For Blake it will mean two more weeks of practicing and preparation. His inside familiarity of Green Bay’s team from his time there was a valuable resource in the preparation of the NFC Championship and the Falcons sure did deliver.

Full highlights of the game can be seen here.

Blake NFC Ch'ship week

The Falcons are favoured at home to the Packers. The teams met each other back in week #8 and the Falcons won 33-32 in one of the best games of the year. That game was also at home in the Georgia Dome. Every game for the last 3 weeks has potentially been the last game ever at the Georgia Dome for the Falcons……. this time it definitely will be the last. The Superbowl will be in Houston at Reliant Stadium.

You won’t get a chance to catch up with Sean this time, he’s staying in Waco between bowl game and the start of school. This semester he will be able to graduate so there are a lot of final academic touches to put on things through May. The new Baylor coaches are assembling and their focus obviously is on signing day in early February.

The Atlanta Falcons are using their first round playoff bye to get ready for the highest ranked winner from the Wild Card round. Seattle play Detroit and New York play Green Bay.
