10:35 AM ET 03.29 | Recently signed defensive end Osi Umenyiora is ready to take the field as a member of the Atlanta Falcons and become a difference maker for the team in 2013. The Falcons were a few steps away from reaching the Super Bowl just a season ago, and if you listen to Umenyiora, you should believe they are ready to make another run. During his time with the New York Giants, Umenyiora won a Super Bowl title twice, but those teams weren't as talented as Umenyiora's new squad. At least that's what the veteran pass rusher seems to believe.

At least he didn't call them the "Dream Team"

I hope he knows the Heimlich maneuver because they seem to choke a lot in the playoffs.

If the Falcons are so talented then why are they such a flop in the playoffs?

Nothing. If Atlanta wins the Super Bowl, he'll look like a genius. But when they choke (again), he'll look like Rain Man.

When was the last time you heard of someone signing with a team then saying someone negative? He knows how to use the media. I wish him luck.

Rain Man was about a guy that was autistic, but was always correct... try again
