No special requests from Winfield vs. Dallas
I'm not so sure that Winfield matches up against TO's size and strength all that well anyway.
This might sound crazy, but Physically, MacCauley matches up much better there, only the experience differential is scary.
I think Winfield makes a good point about Witten too, that guy may be the one to look out for.
But, with Griffin on Crayton, he's sure to be tested too.
This is going to be a rough game for our Defense...we'll need our offense to stay on the field and sustain drives, or it could get ugly.
Re: No special requests from Winfield vs. Dallas
Between your secondary worrying about TO and Crayton, Whitten is going to chew up the middle of the field until you force them to go elsewhere by dropping the LBers into a mid-range zone. Once that happens, Barber is going to run the ball for healthy gains consistently.. your limited coverage skills in the secondary doesn't bode well in this game.
I think this is one of those game that you are going to have to score with them.. can AP and the ground game keep you in it? The Dallas secondary can be had, can Jackson take advantage of it?
Oh watch out for the pressure off the edges with the trio of pass rushers that Dallas can bring, does Jackson stay upright?
I don't think this one is going to be pretty.. if you can exploit the 3-4 defense and run the ball well, it might be a game. If not... it probably is over by the half.
