The confidence in this bunch did not waver after last night's game. They know they can score in Seattle.

Just like this report states, Dallas was the better team last night.

I may go more in depth into this one later on but San Antonio sort of fell way behind Sacramento and Minnesota recently in the expansion race, and the one big reason why was due to the money. If this report is true, San Antonio may jump back up the list here.
