Matt Ryan has his work cut out for him when the Falcons take on the 49ers. The Falcons have had a dream season thus far, they are in for a real wake up call this weekend. Atlanta has to play a better football game than we saw against the Seahawks. They have to be able to score more fourth quarter points, the 49ers are a team that can run away with the game. Ryan has to keep his team sharp in this game and he has to keep guys like Tony Gonzalez involved in the game plan. The big tight end can help Ryan wear down the 49ers defense.
Then the Atlanta defense is going to have their hands full trying to stop the 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. This guy can kill you in 2 ways. He set a rushing record in the last game he played in and he can hurt you with his arm too. The Falcons have to find a way to control Kaepernick, if they can’t contain him, they will have trouble winning this game. The Falcons defense is going to be tested even though they did well with Russell Wilson. Kaepernick is bigger and stronger.
If the Falcons are going to get to the Super Bowl they are going to have to stop the high-powered San Fransisco 49ers offense, this isn’t going to be an easy task. I’m not sure the Falcons are up to the task.
