Cinemadiction...Cowboys have a pretty good receiving unit, and it can only get better when they sign Keyshawn Johnson. As for the quarterbacks...they have just signed Drew Henson to an 8-year deal, and they are in talks with Vinnie Testaverde as well. That seems like a damn good 1st and 2nd string QB line-up to me.
Not that I'm defending the 49ers or anything, but it's always hard to tell with them. After Montana left, people said the 49ers were done. Then Young leads them to a couple NFC Championships and eventually wins a Super Bowl. Then Young retired, and people said they were done, and Jeff Garcia comes out of no where and puts up the best numbers by a 9er QB in history. He may not have led them deep in the playoffs, but they were there nonetheless
Now don't mistake me for a 49er fan or anything, just don't write them off to quick.
Throwing the ball more wont make up for losing 2 of the top CBs in the league. The only reason the Eagles even got to the NFC Championship the past 3 years is b/c of their D. Signing Kearse will help, but he hasn't been good since his rookie year. If he can stay healthy, he's a monster, but that is a very big "if".
Their only hope on offense is to throw the crap out of the ball, but McNabb's arm isn't that great and he's very injury prone. In addition, TO is their only weapon. They are so one-dimensional that its comical. Nobody is going to repsect their running attack, so TO gets double or even triple-teamed all game. And when TO doesnt get the ball enough, he's gonna start complaining. The fans will turn on him, Reid will turn on him...I'm excited, I can't wait!
And how long will it be until Philly implodes? If McNabb, TO, or Kearse gets hurt, they are pretty much screwed. And all three have a history of being very injury prone.
Offensive line has nothing to do with an opposing team's secondary, which he whips past on runs.
He must be doing something right to finish 6th in the NFL in rushing w/ 1,444 yards, rushed for seven 100-yard games in 2003, set a record for 4 straight 100 yard rushing games w/ a new team, as well as have led all rushers in the post season.
The Panthers are a short distance running team. Pounding the ball through the middle, and passing to 2 of the NFL's best recievers the other half of the time.
Guys may want to brush up on your stats before you talk shit, and make yourself look so out of the know.
just because someone is fast doesnt make him good. and davis isnt even that fast, he's not a speed running back. if anything, he's a power running back.
and it's not like he was always breaking 90 yard runs like your post implies. most of his runs were 4 or 6 yard gains up the middle. so when you pound th ball up the middle and control the clock (like the panthers did), its mainly the offensive line that is doing the work.
and him leading the postseason in rushing yards is completely pointless. a) they played more games than everyone but the patriots b)theyre a running team (b/c they have a good OL), so of course he's going to have a lot of rushing yards
Dallas traded Galloway for Johnson today...it's about time. Great move for them, I think. And with the acquiring of Drew Henson, and the potential acquiring of Vinnie Testaverde, they are contenders this year. Just need to draft a running back...possibly Maurice Clarrett?
