My $0.02 here. I'm elated that we get to go on the road in a wild card game. What better experience for a team full of rookies? Look, most of us acknowledge we're probably NOT going to get passed the division road of the playoffs. I do believe we go into Bittermore and play the Ravens, we'll win (AGAIN) in that wretched place. But this type of road game will do wonders for experience and confidence in the future and that's what we have to focus on. My o/u on wins was FIVE. We've doubled that (counting on at least 10 wins). We have a top 5 QB already. How good is this team going to be next year!!! Lets get the butterflies out now of that first-time road experience in the playoffs.
Also, I'm elated not to have a 1st-place schedule in 2013. No New England, Denver, Baltimore (likely). This team WILL make a run at the AFC-S next year. It'll be much simpler to do so with a 2nd-place schedule. This also betters our draft position by a few slots.
Different perspective, I realize, but its what I'm happy with.
