To kick things off I say let's prepare for boston. Being ready for this year's boston will make us a better team because they are a better team on paper than depleted pittsburgh or defence-less washington.

It's impossible to prepare for philly because they are unstoppable, it's just depressing to think that we could play them. I prefer denial at this point.
Plus, preparing for the booins will serve us well when we play them in round 1, the most likely of scenarios.
