Kick. That way we get the ball in the 3rd. I would like to start the game out with our defense, then get good field position on our first drive.

Kick first, have Warner taste our blitz package and have Fitz "socialize" with Clark early in the game.
Let's receive at the beginning of the 3rd quarter to put the final nail in the coffin.

If we win the toss, I say defer and then let the defense set the tone for the first series. If we lose the toss and they defer I say receive (of course) and let Ben prove to the world why he is just as much an MVP QB as Warner has ever been.

Kick and hold them to 3 and out or better yet a turnover. Nerves will be a bigger factor on offense than defense IMO. If we get it in the second half Ben will already be in the flow of game.

Initially this season, I wasn't a fan of defering, but it's won me over. I'd say kick it, and let our defense slow them up.

Defer - No question.

I want as early a view of Wiz's plan vs. LeBeau so we can start planning adjustments right away - if necessary.
