THe new season starts today as Mike Smith says - nativefalcon - 12-30-2012 11:21 PM
The old season is over and the new one just begun, except in this one your one and done. Vikings, Dallas, Redskins, or Seattle, I just want to the win the first game and go from there and like the panthers game forget it, like a bad memory. Just pray for Abe and Dunta and Assante that they are quick healers. And the O-line remembers how to block. The season is about to begin.

I think we will be fine....we were sloppy today for a few reasons....we were trying out some things....some worked others didn't....I really think we didn't play very hard until the second half.....but I think the negative press and doubters will be ruthless for the next two weeks.....whoever we get will think we are vulnerable and our guys will come out fired up to prove the meeting wrong! I think GB will beat Minn in GB.....so I think we are looking at Sea (if Dallas wins tonight) and Wash (if Wash wins since I think their natural grass will cause problems to the Seahawks....)
Just my two cents.....either one will come in thinking we are flawed....and they will pay dearly for underestimating us!

The media will underestimate us but no other team will.

That is crap....Washington thought they had our number....then people look at film at home......They will come in confident they can do what no one but the bucs did today.....honestly...I think we could have been more aggressive in the first half...when we play that way....we are sneaky good....trust me....they will underestimate us...and we will make them cry like ELI......WE WERE THE GIANT KILLERS.......WE WERE THE SAINT KILLERS.....no one seems to notice that.....did they still have a chance yes...but us beating both of them deflated their teams enough that they lost other winnable games.
The first team that comes in WILL underestimate us.....the second team will not (so on that one we have to play our best)....I think we might get a chance to meet the Broncos and avenge that 1998 Superbowl.....If we got Minn and SF again (in the reverse order of course) along the way that would be SUPER sweet.....This is story book and I hope our guys take it EXTRA serious and the focus is there....I think it is....but it is hard to tell on days like today

I don't think any playoff team will underestimate us because they will watch the film and see for themselves how good we are. After doing that they would have to be complete idiots to underestimate us and I don't think any of the staffs in the playoffs are idiots.
Now, if they are dumb enough to sit back and let ESPN do their scouting for them of course they will underestimate us but c'mon you know that is not how it works, they wouldn't even be in the playoffs if that is how they operated.
Washington has a two time super bowl winning head coach, the last thing he is going to do is take the #1 seed lightly in the playoffs.
