Re: Can We Run the Tables with a Shoddy Defense?

If they can average 175 yds rushing per game, be consistent in the passing game, be at least even in turnover ration, fix the special teams than they may be able to over come this simpleton---watch while we get picked apart defensive stlye of play!!!!! Matt Ryan looked just as comfortable as did Kurt Warner -v- AZ --- sitting in the pocket, just as relaxed, no worries...just licking his chops and smiling about such a non-threatening defense...

Re: Can We Run the Tables with a Shoddy Defense?

What have you seen in Dallas this year that makes you think that with our backs against the wall we don't go down there and beat them?

The ONLY senario I see is Jason Witten catching for 100+ yards and 2 TD's or something on us because he is probably the best Tight End in the league and we had trouble covering Gonzalaz.  However, Tony Romo is probably more erratic than Jake is at times.  He definitely can't manage a game like our QB can.

If we contain Ware's pass rush and slow Witten down, I don't see why we don't win this game to get some confidence going into the bye week.

Also, I may be over estimating what I've seen from NO so far.  I'm basing them winning the division b/c they put up 48 points on a very VERY good defense.  But one thing to note is that we swept them last year with basically the same offense they have now and our defense whose pass rush may actually have been worse. 

If we go 1-1 with NO then we may loose another game that I picked us to win.  Perhaps Arizona or NE.  Nevertheless, I think 10-6 is our destination.  Even if we go 9-7, many outlets pick that to win the NFC South this year.

I have a gut feeling that the Falcons might be the '09 version of the Bucks though--starting out really strong then Turner and Gonzalaz get hurt and slow down their production and they struggle coming in to finish around 9-7.

Peppers is in cruise control mode again.  16 million for this crap.

I think we could lose to Dallas because they are very good in Sept. and October I didn't say we would lose.  Just said that I could see us bringing home a loss.  They apparently can't play defense either so should be a shootout like the Giants game.  Its their running game that really worries me.

Re: Can We Run the Tables with a Shoddy Defense?

The best case senario presented would be GREAT...but this team just needs a win...beating Dallas is all that is a concern at this point and this team beating anyone is not going to be an easy task...the D is porous and the ST blunders are just terrible...plus it surely would have been better if Dallas had found a way to win last nite...they too are in a must win type modality...if they can get Dallas things are at least possible...if they go 0-3 it could be curtains and a curtain call for JF & MH...

I really dont see this team beating Dallas. They just dont have that it factor this year. Oh well, atleast Fox will continue his trend of losing seasons after winning seasons. How much more of these up & down seasons is Richardson going to allow?

Hopefully not too many more, because the only way we can get Ditka as our coach is if we fire Fox.
