Who you trying to get crazy with Falcons, don't you know Richard Sherman is loco?

Atlanta's talented receivers could cause any secondary fits, but if anyone is up to the task, it's Richard Sherman and the Seattle bunch.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman went on record this week as saying the Falcons' wide receivers are the best group in the league, so Atlanta wasn't going to be sneaking up on Seattle this week in the NFC Playoffs.

While Matt Ryan should still be able to find his receivers early and often, it won't be for lack of trying from Sherman and the Seahawks' secondary. Obviously, the injury to Chris Clemons hurts Seattle's depth somewhat, but the Seahawks play fast and loose on seemingly every play, and they're going to need that aggressive execution in the dome to set the tone early.

Sherman made a critical pass breakup on 3rd and 3 that would've resulted in an opening-drive touchdown for the Falcons and celebrated accordingly with his best Cypress Hill homage. Most other Cypress Hill homages would've involved some kind of illegal drug-related paraphernalia.
