Reasons To Think Skins Will Win

1. Pressure on Sea to win as a 9pt fav and a team that traditionally chokes. As far as there fans are concerned, and all the media there is no way they loose. Thats a ton of pressure for an unproven, untested team.

2. Holmgren is the worst coach left in the playoff pool.

3.Our Def can stop the run. Just like NYG once tiki was taken out they fell apart.

4. Hasselbeck is 0-2 as a playoff starter.

5.Our Def is healthy as it has been in weeks.

6. After playing the league's #1 Def going against Sea's D will be like taking the donut off your baseball bat after practice swings.

7. Sea is 1-2 vs Playoff teams this season and the win was the vs NYG in the feely game. Im not counting the Indy game with the starters out.

8. We beat their ass already!

They also play in the worst division in the NFL. I wonder what Gibbs' record is on road playoff games.

All good points. Vegas is off their rocker, 9pts is a shortsighted line only looking at a poor offensive performance vs. TB. Seems like a classic upset waiting to happen to me

thats such a great feeling ...

I say we win cause Holmgren sucks in the playoffs, and he is going against a team and coach that has been in the playoffs the last 6 weeks. In other words we are primed and ready for this game ... we will catch them flat footed.

I believe it's 7-4 (including 3-1 in the Super Bowl). And he's 5-0 against the Seahawks

Re: Reasons To Think Skins Will Win

Re: Reasons To Think Skins Will Win

You gotta think that there is alot of experienced money that is giddy over the 9 points. I'm not a gambler but anyone can look at the scores of Redskins games this year and see that that's a steal.

Im optimistic because Seattle's pass defense rank is 17. That indicates what? A poor pass rush. The only time our offense really coughs is when Brunell is under pressure. Recalling the first game he had alot of time in the pocket. I'm sure they will turn up th heat in terms of blitzes since this is a playoff game but you are what you are. The Seahawks are vulnerable against the pass.

While I agree with most of your statements, this one is a little strong. Four of the remaining coaches have Super Bowl rings, and he is one of them. And his teams are generally over .500, year in and year out.

One more reason, we will take the crowd out of the game.

Re: Reasons To Think Skins Will Win

Seattle is suspect on kick coverage. Can you say "field position?"

We need to get Santana returning kicks. He had a TD for the Jets on a return in last year's playoffs.
