Geeze! A bunch of chicken Littles in our fanbase! EVERY team is banged up this time of season, you guys act like we lost Gore, Crabs and Davis! We have good depth and we will be just fine. We have a MUCH tougher schedule this year than last yet we still lead the division. There isn't another team in the playoffs that worry me except MAYBE the Pack. Denver doesn't worry me, I've watched Manning struggle against 3-4 defenses long enough to not worry. The one thing that does cause concern is the limited offense we run, James' inability to play outside of read option plays, not allowing traditional play action passing hurts. Outside of Smith we are realitivly healthy on defense and that is our bread and butter. We need the Vikings to beat the Pack so our defense can rest up during the by week.
How many sacks has Aldon had with out Justin next to him...answer zero!
And a whole lot of banged up players, it is realistic to have concerns, it is unrealistic to think it is any kind of cake walk, or given that we advance. If we do advance, if we do get to the Superbowl, and if we win...it will be an amazing conclusion to a roller coaster season. I for one am guardedly optimistic, and look forward to seeing just how coach gets this done!
