TBH without bloviating, until The BW game I would say no. I certainly didn't expect the Tigers to pitch a shutout but they played well against a shifty offense that we hadn't seen. Got some breaks along the way and capitalized. Week 11 and 12? Not so much. No disrespect to any of those teams.Have the playoffs been getting us ready for the real competition?
From this point forward starting with Green IMO it's a different story. I expect a great game on Friday and if we move forward I expect more of that. We can't choose the playoff opponents but I believe the regular season has prepared the Tigers more so than other years. After all we weren't supposed to be here now from a lot of accounts/opinions.
