Glad you mentioned Thursday night. I truly think the Saints beat the Falcons on Thursday night. The Saints had a losing record at home last year and still whipped the Packers in prime time at home. That's how good they are in prime time at home. Any given Sunday but I feel very pessimistic about the Skins chances.
Seahawks Bengals at 1. Would watch and pull against the Falcons if they were playing any other team any other place, but have no expectations we'll get help from the skins. Pats Cowboys at 4. Sunday night will be too burnt out but will watch the last 5 minutes if it's close. Zero interest Monday night.
I HOPE we have this mindset on October 18. But in reality it's just not true. For reasons too wide and deep to delve into with this post, let's just say we're set up to succeed far more than they are going forward due to FAR better drafting, age, chemistry, trades (or lack thereof), and cap management since Dave Geniusman arrived.
I have had the same feelings no doubt but big picture, there's just no way the hate comes close to the feeling of the 2004 Vick game and Nakamura game in 2012 in that chitty dome. Not. Even. Close. I've given ample reasons why we will soon put the afterburners on and smoke the Hawks and their Johnny Come Lately selves. Even as a young franchise, and even though they've skyrocketed up the hate list, too much hate for too many other teams to put them at the top.
Not necessarily true. Losing every game means the #1 pick. Of course Loomis would ruin a wet dream, but still, it's better for us if they sprinkle in a few wins. I think week 4 is too early to know who we should/shouldn't pull for in that one given what we know now-just look at the glass half full that one will lose. And most importantly take care of our own business and let let those clowns pillow fight to death as we enjoy 4-0 going into the bye.
I made the same comment yesterday that we may have to sweep them because they have an easier schedule. They do however have to go to NO for a primetime game in 2 weeks and I could seriously see them losing that game in that spot for a myriad of reasons. if they drop a division game then we slide easily into the inside track. and if we have to sweep them? So be it.
With all due respect to all other cultures, people of Tongan/Polynesian heritage are not synonymous with being pu$$ies. I would never suggest that with Star in particular as it holds no basis in logic or sanity.
