I don't think about what the Falcons did last year at all. They have a good team and home field advantage and create some matchup problems.
But yes, this year the Giants and Niners (and Packers, now that they are discovering their run game) are all worse matchups.
They've also blown their last bye in 2010. Matt Ryan has never won a playoff game and he's been there 3 times. That kind of thing weighs on a team and can turn into a self fulfilling prophecy, especially against a physical team like Seattle.
