I heard a good bit of talk about how it's still early and we should put too much stock in one game. Or it's a long season and let's see what happens. Here's my take: We have played five games that's almost one third of the season. For my money that's a fairly large sampling to extrapolate or prognosticate on just what we have here in this team and our real chances of winning the superbowl. Before I explain my positon on this question LET ME PUT A QUESTION TO THE REST OF THE BOARD. IF YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS TO BET ON ONE TEAM TO REPRESENT THE NFC IN DETROIT, WHO DO YOU PICK? I pick Dallas. Unlike most fans I don't look at my team in a vacum. I realize that when things do and don't work out that thier is another team on the field trying to run pass block cover and tackle. Here's where we are playing at a suberbowl level: 1) Bledsoe: This is no fluke. He's for real. There is no longer any doubt in my mind. He's has lead us to a huge comeback, a fourth Q comeback and performed very effectively and effeciently in each and every game against different stlye defenses with varying talent levels. He is playing at a probowl level right now and I see no reason for this to change. 2)Cornerbacks: All three guys are playing at a very high level and have all my confidence. We can flat out cover. My only concern is the secondary as a whole and if the communication will improve. The trend has been an improving one and I believe this will continue. Borderline playoff level: 3)Defensive Front seven: Spotty run defense and pass rush. At times they have looked pretty good and at times not so good. This is the area with all the rookies and depth that I believe has the highest upside as far as improvement on play over the first five games. I believe this unit moves into the suberbowl play level somewhere between week 11-17. 4)Pass blocking: Good and improving. Only sore spot was the Raider game missing all those blitzes. Last week was as good as it gets. This area is close to the Superbowl level. 5)Offensive skill positions: Very good with signs of improvement. WR/TE have been exceptional few dropped passes and demonstrated big play ability. J. Jones production keeps this unit from achieving Suberbowl level. Improved run blocking will change this. I just have to see it from Jones before they get bumped. Below .500 team level: 6) Run Blocking: Simply can't explain it. The pieces seem to be there but they just haven't gotten it done so far. This could be what holds us back if it doesn't improve. Can someone please explain to me why any NFC team should be considered superior to this team at this time based on the play we have seen.
