IF YOU BUILD IT …
QB Vinny Testaverde said Wednesday that he, as well as his teammates and team administrators, are excited that residents of Arlington voted Tuesday to approve a tax increase to fund the team's proposed new Stadium in Arlington.
"It's not something that we talked a lot about, as players," Testaverde said. "I was confident (the vote would get approved). But our focus every day is on the upcoming opponent, which last week was Detroit."
Testaverde, was asked if there's any chance he'd still be playing when the stadium opened (it's projected to be be ready in 2009).
"There's a chance," he said, laughing, before clarifying his answer. "Hell, no."
DOWN THE HOME STRETCH
Testaverde called on one of his biggest non-football passions when asked to explain the importance of Sunday's game at Cincinnati.
"I'll put it in golf terms," he said. "If you can manage the front side, the front nine, and then you make the turn, it's like you get a fresh start. You have a chance.
"The second half of the season is very important. But you have to set yourselves up to have the second half mean something. Having said that, I've been on teams that started 2-5 and made the playoffs, but if we can get to 4-4 … I'll give you one example: Pittsburgh. Everyone talks about them as a great team, and I think they are -- they'll go to the playoffs, they're a solid team all around. But we were probably one mistake away from beating them.
Home Sweet Home
