There's a lot of talk about what we should do. I've offered my opinion as well. Regardless of how Jake performs, we need to bring in a young guy. If we finish 10-6 or 9-7 and Jake plays well, it will be hard to argue that Fox should go as we have back to back winning seasons for the first time. Edwards will be drafted by the Panthers if he has the best value for the pick whenever we get that far down the Panthers draft board. With all that said, the rest of the team is looking to beat the Saints, and I say we're gonna get it done.
We just beat the defending NFC Champions by doing exactly what the CSR said we needed to do. We're going to need a little more from Jake to beat the Saints, but not 44 pass attempts. However, we beat the Cards who were 4-2 division leaders. They were giving up 67.5 rushing yards per game and 3 YPC. We destroyed them by attacking their strength. We intercepted Kurt Warner 5 times. Earlier this year, he was 24 of 26 in a game. They just destroyed the Giants the week before. Drew Brees has six turnovers in the last two games, and the Saints have 8. They had to make a comeback against a team without a D-Will, Beef Stew, Peppers, Beason or Smitty when they played Miami. The way our defense has played the last month, they won't beat us if we go up 21 early. They barely beat the Falcons. They're not as good as their record shows, and their descent is about to begin. Peppers had his best game since the Pro Bowl, and will play better against the Saints. He is playing as well as anyone in the league right now on defense, except maybe the monster - Thomas Davis. We shut down Warner, Wells, Fitz, Boldin, Adrian Wilson, Cromartie, etc. The Cards had more weapons on both sides of the ball. The games we lost were given away. We weren't beat, we gave them the game. I think we're done doing that. I say fire Fox, but not if we win the division. On Monday, we'll be 4-4, and the Saints will be 7-1. They know they aren't playing well, and a loss can send them into a midseason slump. We could win the division at 12-4 or 11-5, or be a wildcard at 10-6. Maybe I'm just excited cuz I have the day off from work, but, seriously, who's with me? Bring on the Saints. If I'm wrong, we'll see on the field. Until then, let's get ready to rumble.
