Smith: Falcons not satisfied with 1 playoff win

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Mike Smith provided quick evidence his attention has shifted from his first playoff win with the Atlanta Falcons.

Smith was just starting his review of the Falcons' 30-28 win over Seattle in the NFC divisional playoffs Sunday when it became clear his thoughts were on this week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Smith said Monday the Falcons "knew the San Francisco Forty ... excuse me, the Seattle Seahawks" were a strong team. Smith then had to smile after catching his verbal miscue.

The win over Seattle was the first for Smith and quarterback Matt Ryan in four postseason games with Atlanta. The coach insists the Falcons' "goals and expectations" are much higher than just ending the postseason drought.
