Regardless of how you look at it, that's a murderer's row of teams to play....and the team is obviously getting better defensively and offensively.
I think this team is on the upswing and starting to get their **** together.....
Good point. I think you'd be hard pressed to argue that this team isn't on an upswing. The secondary has really solidified and the team runs 3 or 4 deep at CB beyond Champ. Since Mays has been extracted from the lineup, the team as a whole seems to attack the ball much more efficiently. Particularly sniffing out bubble screens, quick hitter draws etc. D-line depth and MLB play are still major concerns though.
Offensively this team is clicking, and Manning is all-world, but depth concerns at skill positions remain. If Willis tweaks a hammie, what happens? Hillman had a really nice game, but he's still not a guy that you're going to feed the ball to.
If Decker or Thomas get dinged, suddenly depth at WR becomes a concern.
Although all of these are relatively minor concerns when PFM is playing like PFM.
