Lets get one thing straight, what Shanny did to McNabb sucks. Everyone has the right to be really upset.
And I know you some people don't like McNabb and we shouldn't of given up two draft picks for him...blah, blah....BUT a bye week is just what this team needs. I mean really everybody? Taking a QB in the first round? Cam Newton? (DOUBLE REALLY!?)??? We could easily come out on MNF and defeat the Eagles again, then every thing is back on track. There is a lot of ebb and flow to this season, and we've won and competed in a lot of games where I didn't even think we had a chance at the beginning of the year. And we've lost some games where I think we should of crushed some teams. But that's what the NFL is...get over it ...
We're in November now, half way done, 4-4, in control of our own destiny. Coming out of the bye we play an Eagles team that could very well be 4-4, also. The NFC is wide open and we have two weeks to get everything together and take a real run at the playoffs. Personally I'm very happy to have a shot at the playoffs. I know we have a lot of problems, but I really think we can grind some wins out and have a real shot at going to the playoffs.
We absolutely have to win every, single home game (Philly, Minn, TB, NYG) and I think that's doable (sp?). So a lot of fans need to man up, buy a ticket, and make some noise for MNF. I doesn't need to look like an invasion from the Jersey Shore in two weeks, it needs to be a raucous crowd for the burgundy and gold. Win your home games, and let Dallas beat themselves, and eak out one win on the road and we're in. I really think we can do it.
I'll give you Monday to be depressed, hell I'll give you Tuesday too (only b/c its a bye week), but isn't this better then last year? I think the next 8 games are going to be a lot of fun, probably as gut wrenching and hair pulling as the first 8 weeks, but its exciting. Here's to the future! HAIL!
