Default Kick or receive?

Well I figured everything else is being talked about, why don't we discuss this.... Should we win the toss or even vise versa would we rather kick to the Cards or recieve?

I'd say recieve.... put the first points on the board and have our D come out first in the 2nd half.

Receive.......

We own the third quarter anyways so why defer. The Cards plan is to jump out on us early if they can. They have to do so in order to win because if its close by the time the third and fourth quarter rolls around in a physical contest, we will win the war of attrition.

But id like to receive.......play action over the top to Nate or Santonio. Let em know we're gonna exercise every inch of that field on offense.

Put the D in first - stop them, or even better get a turnover on their first drive. Remind the Cards it's gonna be a long day out there!

Then send the O out in great field position.

Same here, like Tunch always says, the 1st drive in the 3rd qtr is usually the most important drive.

Yep...and they always say don't change your way of doing things when you reach the Super Bowl...and all year Tomlin, when he wins the coin toss, defers to the second half...so......

LETS GO D!!!!
