Defense also made a lot of plays today. Dunlap, MJ, and Geno sure look like the real deal. I was trying to focus on MJ a lot Sunday specifically and he more than held his own against a good tackle in McNeill.
Just nice to finally be able to post about us doing something good for a change, against a talented team no less. Hopefully this carries over to the Ravens game and we can end this season with some promise for next year. I for one really hope we can retain sign JJ long term along with Benson for a couple more years. Though it could be nice to give Bernard a real shot. He looks very, very promising whenever he has the ball in his hands.
You're welcome NFC West, and I'm glad to hear Tolbert is apparently going to be OK. That was a very scary situation he was down for at least 10-15 mins.
Yea, It's very encouraging to see Simpson and Caldwell hold their own out there.
As much as I want to see what Scott can do with a full work load, I also really like how much effort Benson has put into this team. I would really like to see him give us another year or two at least. I know it's a lot tougher on a coach running constant substitutions, but maybe just give Scott more carries like they did in this game. Specifically in the first half, to keep Benson fresh for the 2nd half where he can beat up on a tired defense.
