Is this the week the Eagles attack with an unforeseen use of the, "Wild Cat" featuring Michal Vick?

Is this the week the Eagles unleash (no pun intended) Michael Vick? I certainly hope not because I think it will catch the Cowboys’ D “off-guard.”  I fear that Andy just might have 4 or 5 choice plays he’s been developing (for Vick) and has been waiting for both the chemistry to come to together in practice and the right game to unpackaged them in.  Could that be this Sunday?

Will we see the more pass happy explosive Cowboys of the past couple games this Sunday?   Or will it be the bruising version that lead the league in rushing after week 3? Personally I hope it’s a balanced mix of both.  I don’t expect the Eagles to play a one dimensional defense so neither do I expect the Cowboys to counter with a one dimensional offense.  Garret has, so far, this season done a good job of taking what the defense gives him.  The Eagles defense, however, presents the biggest challenge (so far), in that they make it very difficult to see what it is they’re keying on, (trying to take away) on any given down.  The Eagles will be looking to stop the pass and the run on Sunday and Garrett should find himself in a very interesting chess match.

 

The Cowboys’ defense has improved but are they ready for the most explosive offense they will have faced so far this year?  For a long time now the Eagles have been the masters of the screen pass.  Reid seems to have an uncanny sense of when and where an opponent is blitzing from and he will offset that with a beautifully designed screen pass.  Wade has done a great job these past few games of choosing when to dial up the blitz and an even better job of knowing when to call off the dogs and mix it up.  In each of the past two games the Cowboy’s opponents have started out with long, impressive drives and in each of those games Wade and company have done an outstanding job of adjusting and shutting them out for their next several possessions.  When playing chess against Andy, Wade will have to do some of his best “in-game” adjustments of the season so far; should be interesting. 

 

 

Will special teams make the difference?  The default thing to say is, “whoever wins the turnover battle will win the game.”   But what if that battle is even when the final gun sounds?  I’m anticipating that both teams will have a pair of turnovers this Sunday, so does this mean special teams could make the difference?  Both teams have proven themselves capable of producing both points and great field position in the return game…  Might a key 4th quarter punt return be the difference?

 

And finally will I be able to go to sleep on Sunday night once this game is over?  Will I be tossing and turning with anger due to an obnoxious loss?  Or I will I be wide-eyed with giddiness due to a remarkable win?  Will my 4 month old son allow me sleep through the night either way?  Time will tell.

 

Can’t wait for Sunday night.
