Positives from today's game

I know sometimes its easier to think the problems we had today were ugly (the refs problems were not our fault) but I just thought it's time to think of the positives from this game.

The W is ours, we have won 5 straight and are 10-3

Chris Johnson - most said he would run riot like he has been doing recently

11 carries for 23 yards - im proud of that

No turnovers

When we ran it, we looked good, ivory had a couple good runs brought back, sproles had an awesome punt return TD brought back and Im still going to be ignorant and say Jimmys catch WAS A TD!

10-3 leaders of the NFC south, smile people, WHO DAT

Yep, we overcame a lot of adversity today. We beat the Zebras and the Titoilers. We made plays when necessary and squeaked out a win here. Too close for comfort but we got the W.

Our pass coverage was decent, except at the end when we fell back in that "prevent". Except it doesn't prevent anything...

In addition to what's been mentioned...

-Solid tackling
-Seeing Martez Wilson on the field and making plays was good to see.
-Dunbar looks more athletic than I give him credit for.
-I find very little difference between Larry Fitzgerald and Marques Colston. It just so happens Fitz has been their primary weapon for years and Colston is one of many and still produces at a high level.

eh fitzgerald is definitely in the elite group of wideouts

hes faster and doesnt drop the ball as much....he also doesnt have the benefit of a great QB or another weapon in the passing game to help take the pressure off.....he pretty much does it by himself

Only difference I see is the speed... which is overrated. If Colston was force fed and targeted 10+ times a game like Fitz, there numbers would practically be identical imo. Remember Fitz hasn't exactly been surrounded by hags his whole career. He's had Warner, Boldin, and Breaston flanking him for quite a while.
