Not beause of what we stand to lose, but because I feel like this team is on the verge of taking that next step and becoming a legit contender in the NFC.

I honestly havent felt this way about a team approaching mid-season since 2004. Winning this game gives them the confidence that they can play with anyone in the league. I think it propels them to an 11-5, 12-4 type of season, in good position to contend for a bye.

Lose, and they can still get there.

Win, and they are right there.

Its a big, big game.

Frankly I'm shocked at how far and fast they have come, and a win tonight and I will have to quote Michael Corleone, "Just when I thought I was out, they dragged me back in!"

How bout this for the progress of Wentz?

Last year Wentz had 1 TD and 6 ints in the 1st quarter (for the season)
This year its 6 TDs and 0 ints, 5 games in.

How about this.

A win tonight is our best start since 2004. 13 years ago.

OK, odds went up when I heard Cox is starting tonight, well rested and hungry after the last few weeks off!
