as with singletary's actions/words this week, this kind of s**t is either a necessary strategy to motivate the team and create an insulating Us vs. Them atmosphere, which might spur more impassioned play; or its a desperate attempt to manufacture confidence and justify the hype the team bought into over the summer.
"Oh yeah, they're better than us. We're just going to lie down because we don't have a chance."
I've played and coached sports before, and we always HAVE to come in to any game with the mindset that we will compete and to a point, be better than the other team, so that we have a mental edge to the game.
If you come into any game with any doubt,... you've already lost.
