Hundreds packed Atlanta City Hall today for a Falcons pre-Super Bowl pep rally.
A sea of red, white and black filled the ground floor and lined all four levels of the atrium.
Atlanta City Council member Andre Dickens was just one city official to show support.
"The Falcons are going to win because the fans are on our side and plus, most importantly, our players are ready," Dickens said. "They've had their time in New England. Now it's the Atlanta Falcons' time to shine."
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Usher and Falcons wide receiver Roddy White took turns pumping up the crowd. Even Falcons' President and CEO Rich McKay stepped in to start an ATL chant.
James Burgess was one of the hundreds at the pep rally sporting a Falcons jersey.
"I turn 51 Tuesday," Burgess said. "The Falcons turn 51. And this is Super Bowl 51. So what does that equal out to? Atlanta Falcons winning everything."
The Falcons face the New England Patriots Feb. 5 in Houston.
