We are less than four hours from Skins-Cowboys Part II going down and the nerves are starting to kick in. Thank goodness the NFL was kind enough to grant me the pleasure of seeing two whole football games this ENTIRE FUCKING DAY to serve as a nice distraction. God dammit, I can understand only showing Panthers-Lions at one here in Charlotte, but shit man, give me two 4:00 games, at least. If I only had a balcony all my problems would be solved. No, not because I’d then be able to get a satellite dish, but because it would be easier to kill myself. Seriously, Panthers-Lions.
But back to what’s important: The game tonight. Jamie and I are both feeling uneasy about it, but then again, I can’t recall ever feeling overly confident going into a game against Dallas. Our clusterfuck backfield (still no official word on Portis) concerns me, but regardless of that, we should be able to exploit the Dallas secondary. You’d think, anyway. Santana had a full week of practice and seems to be all better. Perhaps we’ll throw a deep ball or two. I know, crazy talk.
It’ll also be nice to see what DeAngelo Hall has in store for us. Or it’ll be miserable. Either way, he’s an upgrade from Leigh Torrence, for whatever that’s worth. And speaking of D Hall, be sure to pick up your No. 23 jersey. It comes with a free Virginia Tech hoodie! Do not want x 2.
Alright, I have to take care of my pregame preparations. The Mottrams will both be online during the game, so please feel free to share your emotions with us in the comments section and we shall return in kind. It’s therapeutic, really.
UPDATE: Just got word from Matt Terl that Clinton Portis practiced before the game and he is starting. How many carries he gets is another story, of course. Shawn Spring, however, is out, which means Hall’s debut will be an active one.
