Falcons vs. Cardinals open thread

Scott Cunningham

Talk about the game!

The Arizona Cardinals and the Atlanta Falcons will do battle starting at 1:25 Arizona time. We have the news about the inactives for the game -- both Rashard Mendenhall and Ryan Williams are inactive. This frustrates many people, including Williams, I would imagine.

Arizona is favored by 2.5 points. Will they cover? Will they win?

Go ahead and get talking about this game. The Cards and the Falcons both need this game badly if they want to be considered in the playoff race.

In fact, head over to The Falcoholic to participate in their game thread if you are already a member (I believe they have a one-day waiting period).

In your discussion, please remember to keep these rules in mind.

1. While we allow a bit more when it comes to language, if you can avoid swearing, it would be appreciated.

2. We still do not accept any personal attacks. Be passionate, but don't be out of line.

3. "Rec" your favorite comments.

4. Do not ask for or post links to illegal streaming feeds of the game. Gamecasts, Slingbox, all that is cool. But sharing such links puts the entire network at risk of being shut down. If you do it, the comment will be deleted. If you persist, you will unfortunately be banned.
