49ers face fierce challenge vs. Falcons WRs

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Carlos Rogers had one word to describe his homecoming in Atlanta when the San Francisco 49ers face the Falcons in Sunday's NFC championship: expensive.
The 49ers cornerback, born in Augusta and an offseason resident of Atlanta, grew up doing the ``Dirty Birds'' dance when the Falcons reached the Super Bowl during the 1998 season. He has paid for more than 30 tickets for friends and family as he makes an appearance in the Georgia Dome for only the third time in his eight-year career.
What Rodgers will encounter on the field could be taxing, too.
Julio Jones, Roddy White and tight end Tony Gonzalez present all sorts of problems for San Francisco's secondary to solve. The trio is part of what Gonzalez calls the PYP offense - Pick Your Poison - that has shredded defenses while catching Matt Ryan's passes.
