I am starting to get excited about Sunday. In a few days I'll be very excited and nearly ready to play myself. Let's go NINERS!!!!
Was so excited last week that I could barely contain myself! Now I'm more relaxed and will enjoy the week more! :) Beating GB at their house was a huge hurdle and set up the year nicely. They made a statement and they made it playing very conservatively and without the heroics needed against NO. That says they have a lot they did not show and the year should just be better and better.
With no need for Smith to pass their way to victory and no turnovers by our D, we have so much more fuel in the tank. Weeks 2, 4, 6, 11, 12 and 15 are against very solid teams but none of them are as balanced (offense/defense or pass/run) as the niners. And other than weeks 11 and 12, there is recovery time between all the most difficult games.
Chicago and then NO are going to be two great weeks at 11 and 12, but by then a lot could happen. NOs might implode and Cutler might become Cutler. :)
