After how much the game was hyped, they would have thought they were tops of the world, which wouldn;t be good heading into the more important, but less sexy Jets game.
I think this game should bring back that swagger of us against the world in the locker room. Multiple "2003 Tom Jacksons" have appeared up in usual and unusual places (COUGH Tedy). I think the team will have a chip on its shoulder the rest of the season instead of flying high, absorbing the praise.
Also interesting to note that the home-field-throughout hasn't won the superbowl since we won it in 03-04.
