Of course there is always the risk of going completely overboard at times like this, but after witnessing City enjoy successive victories in their last two matches and particularly the manner in which they were achieved, it wouldn't be unrealistic to suggest that a corner might indeed have been turned in this 2007-08 campaign.
Against Coventry at Carrow Road on Saturday City delivered everything that the supporters have been so desperate to see this season and were full value for their 2-0 victory.
But winning at home in front when you've got 24,000 fans backing you is one thing, whereas travelling to one of football's more distant outposts and delivering a repeat prescription is – as we were to discover only too clearly at Plymouth just over two weeks ago- very much another.
So take nothing away from Norwich for beating one of only three teams in this division that until this week had remained undefeated at home this season.
And fully deserved it was too.
As soon as the game got underway, the Canaries, clearly buoyed by Saturday's victory, began to dictate the pace of the game and enjoy the lion's share of possession.
Norwich looked particularly threatening down their right side with Jon Otsemobor eager to drive forward from the full-back position at every opportunity, and with relatively little coming back at them at the other end of the pitch the early signs looked good.
And although it would be inaccurate to suggest that a City goal seemed an inevitability at any time in the first-half, when Dion Dublin arrived first at the near post on the half-hour mark to convert Matty Pattison's excellent in-swinging corner it was certainly not undeserved given the balance of play, and it simply then became a question of whether the Canaries could build on Dublin's opener.
Somewhat worryingly, City then lost their grip on the game for 15 minutes either side of half-time, and the manner in which the game ebbed and flowed during that period basically allowed Blackpool into it.
Slusarski equalised, Hoolahan hit the post and the hosts did have one or two other half chances it has to be said, but the introduction of Lee Croft and especially Darren Huckerby helped swing the game firmly back into Norwich's control.
Huckerby terrified the Blackpool defence every time he ran at them, and if this is how he responds to being left on the substitutes bench when he would have been hoping for an immediate recall to the starting line-up, then ? no matter how much he might dislike it – there is certainly valid reason to keep him there for longer!
Indeed baring injuries, after two wins on the spin with the same starting XI it is difficult to see how Glenn Roeder can change the side at all for the visit to Stoke on Saturday, regardless of how well both substitute wide men might have performed.
After the referee had gifted Blackpool a penalty kick by wrongly adjudging Otsemobor to have fouled inside the box it appeared that two points were about to slip through the Canaries' grasp, but a superb double save from David Marshall saw justice prevail.
From then on City broke at Blackpool at will, and Dublin's second in stoppage time after another superb run from Huckerby wrapped it up very nicely indeed.
Individually, Norwich had many stars on duty again last night, with the likes of Marshall, Shackell, Dublin, Huckerby and especially Taylor very much on top of their game, and it is pretty safe to say that collectively, all the confidence and self-belief that has been so badly missing this season has now been well and truly restored.
Like I say, no-one should be getting overly excited just yet ? one look at the league table is certainly reason enough to keep the champagne on ice for the time being ? but nothing wrong either with feeling a darn sight more optimistic that this season isn't destined to end in complete and utter tragedy for the Canaries after what we've just seen in these last two matches.
