Isn't that what we all want. I mean, isn't that what keeps us optimistic fans going, the fact that we see promise on our team? So, for my own sanity, this is what I want for my early Christmas present. I want the following this Saturday night:
Offense against Atlanta, week 7: Tony Romo was "21 of 29 for 311 yards and 3 TDs to earn a 141.6 QB rating." He spread the ball around, Crayton got in on the action, and most importantly, we had pass protection.
Defense against Philly, week 9: Giving up 16 points to an offense as explosive as Philly is nothing to be ashamed of. If we can hold the Saints to 16 points we have a much better shot at winning this game. Ratliff played some great football, and Brooking was an animal as well. Moving Rat out to DE and not giving McNabb much room to breath.
Special Teams against Seattle, week 8: PC return for a touchdown (boy could we use one of those on Saturday!), Beuhler banging kickoffs, as well as making downfield blocks for return men. Oh, and I think Folk was 1-1 on FGs.
Here's hoping guys. We definitely have the tools. I mean, based purely on talent, we do have a team that qualifies for the coveted title of "elite." We just haven't been able to put it together.
Could this be the week?
