When we played Miami, they were at FULL strength, no injuries. So
anybody comparing the Skins game against the Miami team that ended the
season is no comparison. When the Skins played them, Trent Green,
Ronnie Brown, Zach Thomas, Chris Chambers were playing. Might be more
folks that got injured but there it is.
Also the Detroit team that came into FedEx was a much better team
(mentally they were on a "high") than ended the season.
