    Mike Smith's public statements are usually as colorful as his name. That's why it was hard not to notice when the Atlanta Falcons coach brought up his team's playoff chances Tuesday to NFL Media's Rich Hollenberg.

    "I feel very good about it," Smith said when asked about this year's squad. "If somebody asks me, 'Do you think we're gonna make the playoffs?' I'd tell you, 'Yes.'"

    We didn't even need to ask. This is the type of positivity you expect to hear in the offseason. But Smith said it unprompted and with a purpose.

    The Falcons aren't your average team coming off a 4-12 record. They were the No. 1 seed in the NFC just two seasons ago, which was their third consecutive playoff season. Matt Ryan is a top-10 quarterback in his prime.
