Having Hakeem Nicks get to sit again due to a knee injury gave him another week to heal his foot injury, without the team having to suffer without him being out there on the field.
And oh yeah, Cris Collinsworth proved to show his Collinsworthless opinions once more. ;) It only took one week and an opportunity to show it.
Offensive line did a tremendous job. Bradshaw recovered and went on to have a career day. Eli was lights-out. Cruz was huge. Randle stepped up. Wilson ran like a missile.
hers my list of the players of the day
Bradshaw - had a rocky start with the fumble, but completely redeemed himself with 200 yards on the ground. Was nice to see the old AB again, running people over
Whole O-Line...great game fellas..way to open up those running lanes today
Cruz's 3 TD..enough said
Hixon - not flashy but he's been gettin the job done
Prince - I've been tough on him cause he's always hurt, but he had his side of the field locked down the last 2 weeks..nice to see the first round talent showing. Keep up the good work, and we should have 2 good lockdown corners with Prince and Hosley on the field for years to come
Randle - Good game today kid, keep up the good work. Nice to see why we drafted you so high
Chase - not fast, but always in the right spot, besides when Perry Fewell has a brain fart and decides to have you covering receivers
Stevie Brown, another pick!! I'm liking this kid more and more every week
this probally goes unnoticed, but Paysinger and Herz have been playing lights out on special teams, good job guys
Eli in the rain
Randle answering his critics
Prince overall play was physical
Will Hill flashing that brilliant athleticism.
Wilson, did you see that burst?
Hixon and of course Cruz
Last but not least, how about the OL's performance today. I have been a big critic and feel like they had a very good game as a unit.
Notice I didn't mention the DL. We'll get to that after celebrating this nice win.
We have more depth than any team in the league. Hands down...
It's great to see the youngsters step up, gain some more confidence, and earn the coaches' confidence...
Even without Hakeem in there to draw coverage, Cruz still pulls the hat trick...
Maybe it'll be like last year where guys have to hold down the fort and the reinforcements will show up at the right time...(*Crosses fingers*)
BONUS POSITIVES-- Eagirls lose, Skins lose, and Packers lose (yes...we have to face them and it's nice to know they're not so invincible anymore)...we're tied for 1st in the division.
