Default Dwight Freeney, a bit too confident?

just saw him on PTI, and he seems EXTREMELY confident about the game this week. wilbon made a point later on when they were talking about the steelers that they might be a bit over-confident. i hope thats the case, and i hope he realizes this Sunday how confident he really should have been...

GO STEELERS!!!

i saw this but he seemed confident just like a steeler would be. he said all the right things and seemed focused on the task at hand. i wish i could take something bad away from this interview but he is gonna show up and be fine. steelers just need to follow suit and keep their mouths shut leading up to the game and go out and play ball. this game wont be won through the media or verbal jabs. at this point the colts have every reason to be confident, as do we :)

I seem to remeber a certain playoff game a few years ago, 95 to be exact where a certain team who was a double digit underdog that almost beat the Steelers..... Oh ya! It was the Colts!!!!!!!! Let them be over confident, they of anyone should know what can happen when your over confident and let a team sneak up on you. Especially in the playoffs....

Didn't Smith only play like one series in this game? I think Freeney may find that he has a little tougher go of it against a seasoned pro-bowler than he did against a rookie project...

freeney abused j. ogden (who proceded to get abused the rest of the season) and did a pretty good job against o. pace. i dont think he has an overconfidence issue. i also dont think he cares if hes going against smith or me and you. he will show up to play regardless of who hes going against. i do wish i knew how he did against walter jones in seattle a few weeks back. im not sure if he even played.

Pace and Ogden are kind of done...they get away with holding in the same way Georgetown University is still considered a top academic school (by reputation and proximity only). I watched Joey Porter drop into coverage for the entire first half last week, that watched him play about his best half of football I've seen him ever play in the second half...he was explosive and playing sound football. He was also held on almost every down.

Whats wrong with being confident? It's better than feeling unsure.

Good point. I agree that for the Colts, over-confident is going is to send them home early.
