Prescott, Rodgers, and Stafford worry me more.

Toughest remaining Q is still gotta be Rodgers or Luck, but it's not even about that one position. I'd say Cowboys and Dak might give the Vikings the strongest test of the remaining games just with their style of play. Rodgers and Luck especially don't have a team that scares anyones, but solely from a QB perspective, those are the toughest.

Assuming we aren't going to run the table I think Dallas is easily one of our losses. Not that we would be overmatched or couldn't beat them again in the playoffs, I just would see them being one of our losses.

As far as I'm concerned, we're running the table until somebody beats us.

And I don't think Wentz is in the top 3 quarterbacks we have left to face.

Wentz is going to be a quivering, sniveling mass of jello who sleeps with one eye open by Sunday night. :lol:

I think blitzing him is the key for sure. I watched the Redskins game on my commute this morning, and he looked very skittish when getting pressured.
Their LT was especially poor. I'd back Everson Griffen to bag a couple of sacks sunday.

Yeah it was Johnson.....but expect Phily to give their rookie more help (sound familiar). As far as the remaining QBs.....the 2 youngsters have talent and a good supporting group. Stafford, Luck, and Cousins are all very streaky and can light it up at any time.....just never know when. And never count out Rodgers. Maybe we sweep GB this year who knows but that game concerns me the most. 1 game at a time.

We need to win at Phili to restart the momentum, but if we lose to the Cowboys (or any other team at home this year) the fans did not do their jobs. I went to the Packers game and could not believe the number of people sitting down with their thumbs up their a..es when our defense was on the field. This venue is earning a reputation for offering the most inhospitable conditions for opposing offenses. A rowdy crowd does a lot for a defense that already smells blood in the water and I think that's something Prescott hasn't had to deal with yet, at least not to the level of what we can offer. That goes for any other QB visiting - we can give them the psychological treatment by rattling the hell out of them and then let "The Maul of America" administer the physical punishment :beerock: :smilevike:

See, I am not worried about an elite passer. I'm worried about an elite team. An elite passer can beat you, sometimes by himself, and elite team can beat you 90% of the time.

He is the toughest one they are going to face this week. And right now, that is all that matters.

Yeah, we gave our bums more help all the time. Just meant less area to cover. :wallbang:
