In what way? Their running game is better than their passing game but by no means are they one dimensional. They can throw the ball too albeit that isn't their strength.

Both Griffin and Taylor missed the last Tampa game. I'm hoping that their presense will allow the D to overcome our CB injuries. Also recall that Clinton had his best rushing game of the season at TB, so I look for Gibbs to go heavy on the run to control the clock, and minimize exposure of our backup DBs. Having the 6 seed and playing in Tampa looks a lot better than the 5 seed and playing in NY.

We can lose to anybody on the road. We can also beat anybody. It's just a matter of execution and bounces.

Re: Who Stops Us Now??

as long as springs and rogers are back i think we can win...hopefully the inexperienced simms will choke in the playoffs...and the team needs to get back to the intensity they had in the dallas and new york games

Re: Who Stops Us Now??

First and foremost, the Redskins need to worry about Tampa Bay. They are returning to the scene of a very ugly loss...the controversey at the end aside, they gave up 36 points to an offense that was struggling badly going into that game. And Cadillac only played sparingly. Tampa has also won 6 of 8 and aside from the egg they laid in New England, have been playing well...and that place will be crazy on Saturday, not to mention the Skins are banged up.

Now all that being said...I think the most dangerous team in the NFC right now is the Bears....nobody is saying anything about them. They have a defense that is downright brutal...would have been the #1 in the NFL if they didn't play all bench guys today. Today aside, they have won 10 of their last 11...and they finally have a QB who can throw the ball downfield. They went 10-4 with practically no QB or passing game and that's remarkable.

I know, people will say the Skins beat them...but that was months ago, at home, in week #1. Orten was making his first NFL start and was clearly off. And the Skins only won 9-7. Chicago twice was driving deep in Skins territory too, and one bad penalty took them out of FG range and then late in the game Orten simply fumbled away the ball with nobody even touching him. The Skins were lucky to win that game and with that defense, the Bears will be tough for anyone even Seattle.

No matter who the Skins will play though, it will be on the road and they are a much different team on the road then home. All the games will be struggles...but this team has scrapped and found ways to win...hopefully they can keep it up.

Seattle: much better now than when we beat them earlier this year. Plus, if we play them, it'll be in their house, and they'll want revenge against us. This is a tough matchup for us.

Tampa: Cadillac will play against us this time, and the Bucs are playing even better now than they were when we lost to them earlier.

Chicago: their defense terrifies me.

Carolina: a well-balanced team. Not sure how well they match up with us, though.

New York: it would be a war if we played them again. The two blowout games this year were kind of flukey -- each time was so jacked up for the games they won. If we play them again, it goes down to a field goal, I think. Hard part is beating them in Jersey.

Re: Who Stops Us Now??

The Tampa game is going to really tuff. Simms has a lot more confidence than he did when he lit us up for 270 and 3TDs. Cadillac is playing well also. If our secondary is banged up as it looks like it will be, we could be in some trouble. You would think that with the secondary as thin as it is, GW would play more cover two, but that is just not what he is going to do. He is going to blitz, and maybe blitz more than normal trying to limit the amount of time the corners have to cover the receivers. Its going to come down to pressure. If we can pressure Simms and make him get rid of the ball quick, we stand a chance. If they can pick up the blitz, he will make us pay, BIG TIME! I am not so worried about Tampas D. I think we will be able to run and hit them with the WR screen and some deep ball. Hopefull Cooley will be more involved. Our offense looks so much more dangerous when he is involved and has to be accounted for. When he is taken out of the game plan, D's can single out Moss and Portis and shut them down.


By the way, Thrash is absolutely horrible. He couldn't get open if I covered him. He has to be one of the slowest, and worst receivers at getting open or creating space in the NFL. Can we get a little help from somebody in the WR core. All we need is a couple of catches to help moss and cooley out. Cooley couldn't do crap yesterday.

Not to rag too much on anyone, but Thrash really did look completely out of it. I thought Cooley's lack of production yesterday was really more on Brunell.

To me it looked like Philly made a huge effort on taking cooley out of the game plan. He definately was frustrated by it. Brunell was off, no doubt, but Cooley wasn't really open if any during the game. They were all over him(cooley on the screen, when he generally can get 10 yards or so. The little leak play was covered all day, except for Sellers TD. I think moss was actually open more than it showed. They played alot of man, and one on one coverage with him, and I thin Brunell just couldn't get the ball to him, or the play wasn't called for Moss. Brunell hopefully will get some rehab in the next 5 days because we are going to need him if we want to advance in the playoffs. This is not the time for Ramsey to be playing. He has the knack of throwing picks to often.

Hey I was just curious why did the Bears go back to Orton? Is Grossman hurt again?

They were just resting Grossman cause they had nothing to play for. Lovie Smith took a lot of heat for it because Grossman has barely played this year, so he could use the reps. They think he is fragile so they wanted to keep him healthy for the playoffs -- but to paraphrase one sports pundit "you've got to take him out of the glass case at some point."
