Blowing out Detroit
 
Following 52-7 blowout loss to Patriots, Redskins wondering how it happened

Everyone remember that game? It was only last year. I'm sure the same people that are now talking about doing the same thing to Detroit forgot all about that 52-7 asskicking we got and how it felt as a fan. Really stupid comments like maybe Portis can get 300 yards and break the team record in rushing yardage.

Detroit isn't dead, it's a wounded animal. Remember this?

1989 Dallas 13 Redskins 3. Dallas ended the season 1-15.

Dallas Cowboys 0 3 7 3 13
Washington Redskins 0 0 3 0 3

How about, if we are fortunate to control the game, that some of starters can get a rest and some of the new guys can get some experience.

I'm looking for a win. Never was interested all the other crap that's being talked about.

I'm with you on that, but I would like to have at least one week where I'm not sweating it out to the very end!

It's time to put the rest of the NFC on notice.

The problem with the Lions goes much further than the hapless 1-15 '89 Cowboys, who with virtually the same personnel, went on to be very successful under Johnson and Switzer.

The Lions stuck too long with Matt Millen, so their Front Office is just now reorganizing. 27th in Total Offense, dead last in Total Defense. A QB that has 7 career games (2 career starts) under his belt since 2005, and cannot figure out that when he runs out of the back of the endzone, the play is dead. An offense that has good personnel, but no one to get them the ball. A no name defense that can't seem to stop anything. Their one bright spot was dumping salary for draft picks when they traded Roy Williams...

Now while I'm not predicting record shattering, but if the Skins can't put up 30 points on this team, while pinning them down for the count, the Skins will be in trouble going down the stretch. Great football teams beat up on teams like the Lions. If the Skins are a great team, they will have to prove it Sunday...

Maybe because it has no point. Look, I get what he's saying but he didn't need to start a new thread to say it.

Should I lock it? What say the people?

Of course, this is not needed at all!

Lock it up. Im still wondering what this is about.

WE aren't scoring and that should be a concern. Detroit should be an easy win, but so should have been the Browns at home.

Yeah, guess I threw some stuff out there without connecting them together. Lock it if you want. However, I think that the Skins could use this game a couple different ways, as long as they have in under control.

1. Rest some players

2. Rate some players

3. Try some different plays/work on exhisting ones.

And really really try not to lose to an 0fer team like we did in 89 to the Cowgirls.

I think it would be more realistic to compare Detroit to roadkill than a wounded animal. I understand your point but it's kinda been driven into the ground. Any team can win on any given Sunday. There's a difference between overlooking a team and being confident. I don't think the players are overlooking Detroit but they should feel confident going into the game. If we do get a big lead I think we should just run it out instead of giving future opponents some film to look at. I was'nt wondering how it happened against the Pats, I was wondering why Williams did'nt blitz more and knock the crap out of Brady.

Except for the Giants, we've outplayed everyone else, both on offense and on defense. We should've torn up the Rams and the Browns, but we just couldn't score. I hope whatever it is will be corrected by Sunday and we maul the Lions.

Doesn't seem like something lockable. He's saying beware of the Lions. People on here whined and cried constantly after the Patriots put the hurt on us, then turn around and want us to destroy the Lions. For the record, I want us to destroy the Lions but didn't have an issue with what the Patriots did to us.

The Redskins need to stop leaving teams in games. We can 'outplay' everyone, but if we keep it within 7 points you will lose some of those games. This is an offensive game now, the offense gets a lot of rules in their favor. Really, had the Browns not gone for it on 4th down (then Portis may have never fumbled, but that's the what-if game) it very well could have gone to overtime (or lost if he hits that final FG.)
