Butterflies in my stomach churning and making me think I will lose my breakfast. I have not been this nervous since we played in our last SB. I do no not know if my nervous system will take it.

I have to work

luckily I don't think anyone at my restaurant cares much for the NFL so I will be able to avoid the score until I can watch it later.

i thought the same thing - who do think they are? well, they are who we thought they were

come on game time!! it's been a long time since i've felt this way about a Skins game -- 2005 doesn't come close -- after reading some posts from Hawks boards i hope the Skins stomp their a** in the dirt -- good lord they had my blood boiling last night - some of their fans are the nastiest ones i've run across

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS

BRANCH IS A GAME-TIME DECISION

The guy for whom the Seahawks gave up a first-round pick in September 2006 in the hopes of taking the final step to a Super Bowl win might not play during the team's first step toward a 2008 Lombardi Trophy.

Per Ed Werder of ESPN, receiver Deion Branch is a game-time decision with a calf injury.

Werder says that coach Mike Holmgren says that Branch is doubtful (he technically was listed as questionable on the injury report). Holmgren expects Branch to lobby to play, and quarterback Matt Hasselbeck thinks that Branch will play, weather permitting.

As to Hasselbeck, he told Werder that he has a "slightly sprained right wrist," which is giving Hasselbeck concerns about his accuracy. But in yet another example of the blatant manner in which NFL teams fail to properly disclose injuries (without consequence), Hasselbeck is not listed as "probable" -- which is intended to disclose the existence of an injury that nevertheless leaves the player virtually certain to be available for normal duty.

If the goal is to ensure that there is no inside information that gamblers could attempt to acquire by infiltrating the team, a condition that is causing the quarterback to be worried about his accuracy in throwing the ball is probably the kind of information that should be available earlier in the week -- and not just a few hours before kickoff via ESPN.

That could be huge, Branch out and Hasselback inaccurate? That'll leave them with Burleson, Hackett and Engram as receivers, which would still be a handful. I guess we'll have to wait to find out.

Either way, at best it sounds like Branch will not be at full strength playing with a calf injury.

I'm liking our matchup this afternoon.

Branch doesn't worry me nearly as much as Hackett and Engram. Every little bit helps out so I'll take it.

I'm hoping we see Springs on Engram and Smoot on Hackett leaving Branch/Burleson with PP or Leigh covering.
