i think beating the eagles and beating the teams that are right there at the bottom with us....pretty much the games that we should be winning, would be significant confidence boosters helping go against some better teams later.
We cleared it against the Redskins, and then it showed back up against Tampa. We wont really clear it until we win a few against some good teams in the 4th qtr.
they've seen that they can hang with any team in the league. they've done it with all but a couple of them. it's just having the confidence to finish at all that they need. if they can pull off two in a row, esp. on the road, i think they'll be ok the rest of the season...that is unless you're one of those who think the team is better off losing out even though it likely means getting a lower quality HC and or GM.
