Manti Te’o says that he will play this weekend against the Dallas Cowboys saying “I’m ready to go.”

GOOD. We need any help we can get on the field. Te’o should help the defense a ton. I don’t know how he can help the secondary cover better, but having a playmaker on the field that can force some turnovers would be huge. If Te’o can intercept some balls, it would be huge.

We haven’t forced too many takeaways thus far this season. We have been relying on 3-and-outs all the time. We have to find a way to force some turnovers. Maybe Te’o can help spark something there. Having him with Butler back in the middle will be a welcome site on Sunday.
