Falco4 Posted November 10, 2010 Share Posted November 10, 2010 I've been reading a couple of threads lately and a significant number of people are "worried" about Thursday's game. Regardless of the outcome, our team will be better off.We WIN the game:- A victory against a top AFC team (as well as the #1 team in the NFL) will do wonders for our confidence. - One game closer to making the playoffs and home field advantage.- Finally recognized by the media and given our long-awaited props.We LOSE the game:- We get a taste of top-tier competition, which will prepare us for the rest of the season and post-season.- We find out how tough our team is.- We lose against a quality opponent: I say it all the time, beat the teams that you're supposed to beat, steal a couple of wins on the road, and play tough against better opponents. Nothing wrong with losing to a better team.- Ryan and the offense get a taste of a top defense. We're not going to play another defense like them for a while.- We were playing with house-money to begin with. Before the season, I don't think anyone penciled this game as a victory. The media doesn't give us any attention, so if we lose, it's really not a big deal.- If the reports are true, and we are missing Weatherspoon, White, and McClure, and we still keep this game close, it will also do wonders for our confidence when knowing we weren't 100%.Tomorrow is going to be a great game. We need to get that dome rocking (i'll try to make as much noise from LA as possible). Let's give flacco a taste of our home field advantage.
