Hawks should take lessons on how 49ers and Rams keep getting to the Super Bowl

“We feel this is the toughest division in football.” – John Schneider on the NFC West.

Waldron’s task will be simple (OK, simply defined anyway): Get Russell Wilson to sustain his excellent play into December and January, get the offense to play well against good defenses in the postseason and get back over the hump and into the Super Bowl.
