Davis is in beast mode. I know I am looking ahead, and I know this eagles game is the MOST important of the final 3, but you can't help but imagine VD going off for 100+ yards against the Lions or Rams. He will most likely hit 1000 and definitely can break the TD record Gates holds. Can you imagine that? Davis and Gore get 1000 a piece and Smith throws for 20+ TD's!?! Folks, believers in Smith or not, lovers and haters of the guy, you all need to understand this hasn't happened in a long long time.
That alone gets me excited about our 9ers.
I think out of the Eagles, rams and lions, VD matches up best against the eagles.
Eagles: Have not surrendered a 100 yards on the ground since the last time they played...Us. They have an aging LB corp that is going to have no hope of keeping up with the NFL's #1 TD catching machine. They know this as well, and there will likely be an extra safety or corner (Any ideas who they'll match up?!) spying VD/blitzing.
Lions: I don't know if you all remember Julien Peterson, but if there is a LB in the NFL outside Willis who can run with a fast TE it's him. Is he still the player he was? This game will show it.
Rams: Never mind. We will destroy the rams.
