If the Hawks can't beat the Redskins, they don't have any business being in the playoffs. It was basically a push for the final spot in the playoffs, and it came down to who would win the NFC East (technically a 4th seed). We knew we weren't going to get home field advantage, and that is fine.
I don't see any other team in the Playoffs in the NFC being any easier to beat on their home field than the Redskins (obviously the Vikings would come to the Clink, so they don't really count).
The Redskins aren't as physical as the Niners and I don't think they are as polished as the Packers and Falcons.
This is a good test for us, and it will allow us to take the next step. I am confident, but if we lose, it simply proves we weren't ready this year. I hope we take advantage of our opportunity.
