I did NOT expect him to come out like he did against the Steelers. That surprised the hell out of me. Against the Falcons, he looked a little bit more like I had expected him to look.
I expect us to win this game. I expect us to play great on both sides of the ball. I expect our defense to play his receivers fairly tight and for our linebackers to find ways to get to Manning. I expect him to be sacked 3-4 times and to be pressured a lot more than that.
I expect our offense to stretch the field early and then pound the rock late.
But this is going to be a hard game. We're playing a good team at home that's coming off a tough loss. And it's Satan, after all.
I'll be sad if we lose but I won't be devastated unless we're crushed.
How would a win or a loss impact your vision of rest of season or would this game impact your vision at all?
