The Defense is Talking Big - What Do You Think?

We've seen a lot of quotes this week already from various members of the Defense about how they believe our defense is at least as good, if not better than LSU's.  Seth Emerson expands on it this morning, and here are a few tweets of some sample quotes from the past few days:

Georgia safety Shawn Williams not shy when comparing his team's defense to LSU's: “I really do think we’re better than they are."

Then, Rex Robinson weighed in this morning with his opinion, which is not in favor of the defense stirring the pot:

FOR THE RECORD - I do NOT like our DEFENSIVE players righting checks that our OFFENSE will have to try and cash. #DAWGS#SEC

So what do you think?  My opinion - in the scenario as it is, it's not like we've got much to lose.  Nobody outside of the UGA fan base is giving us a chance in the game anyway.  In fairness, I too have predicted LSU to win, but I also said as part of my prediction that for us to win, one of the things that has to happen is LSU has to be off their game at least a bit.  If the talk gets in their heads and makes them more focused on trying to make us look bad than just playing good, fundamental football........well, I'm all for it.  If it backfires, and they come out and skunk us, we weren't supposed to win anyway.

What are your thoughts on our Defense talking the talk?
