Charles Woodson, Aaron Rouse and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. Gred Bedard reports that Dallas already has a “big game feel.”
I think having these three guys available is important, but not crucial. Woodson’s absence would hurt the most. Jarrett Bush has struggled mightily in coverage over the past few weeks and though Patrick Crayton is no Drew Pearson, he has put up good numbers a couple times this year on lesser cornerbacks. It sounds as if Will Blackmon will play, though I doubt Bob Sanders will want to use him much in coverage given his long layoff. That said, I like Tramon Williams returning punts even when Woodson is healthy.
Having KGB would be nice, but Tony Romo is an effective passer even when he is flushed out of the pocket, particularly to the right, which is the way pressure from KGB would send him. Don’t get me wrong, more pressure is obviously better and it would be great if KGB could play. I don’t think it’s likely to win or lose the game, however, with the depth on the defensive line.
