I really fail to grasp the thought process.
Whether we beat the Washington Generals or the NFC Probowl team, I could give a rat's ass. Winning is all that matters, and if we have an easier time of it then so be it. Good for us. We damn sure deserve a few breaks, tbh.
There's something to be said for facing the toughest of the lot though. Many a team in all sports have found out that they weren't as good as they thought they were when they faced a team that could match up with them...See the ATL falcons in 2010 & the Dallas Cowboys in 2009.
Teams that match up with you give you a better idea of how good you really are.
