How do you guys feel about it?
Right now I feel great about it.
You may want to ask me again next week at this time. I'm confident I'll still feel pretty good regardless.
The Colts are tough for any team.
But that is my premise. "Talent is as talent does"...damn, this kid has "it' and we haven't had "it" at WR since TO. If this is a glimpse to the future, then I am excited!
What a great match up for us. Seriously. Go ahead and not think like we are the drudge of the NFL and rather a successful team with a great QB who finally learned the system especially with toys like Gore, Davis, Morgan and Crabtree.
We all know Myers, his system, and the words immortal to those who have followed religiously since he was chosen number one by Nolan... He needs time to learn the system. And, this system he knows...and how. This is the same system that my most hated person showed him in 2006, Mr. Norv "frick you Niners" Turner, used to give Gore a career season and Smith an opportunity to showcase his talents..
You saw first hand what he can do, now, knowing the D and the nuances of the O and being able to trust the playmakers out on the field, Bruce, Morgan, Crabtree and his go to guy for the big play, Mr. Vernon Davis. God bless them all!!
Now, Crabtree as a rookie felt the intensity and the drive that overtakes you as a player when things are "on". Well, Smith was "on". Crabtee was "on". Davis was "on" as well as the OL when all was lost. But, the fact is that they all increased the energy level, taking "it" to another level that wasn't felt since for a long time even all the wins from 2003 to 2008.
It took 2009, a 21-0 score, and a rookie with talent...
...no matter what it allowed Alex the opportunity to extend the field.
They tasted it success again and Crabtree had a sample.
Now Alex has a playmaker on the outside to give him confidence that when "I need a first down, I know who to go to..."
"...Hey Michael, catch!!!"
PS...Hey, Solid...ain't you swimming in a the oceans of "I told you so..."
