Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

I love reading Simmons but his picks suck. They are all bias to his home team The Pats.... He completely contradicts himself by picking SEA and the reasons he picked the Pats...

"But even beyond that, isn't this just Basic Gambling 101? Here's the first rule you learn as a gambler, whether you're betting on sports, blackjack, craps or whatever: Never bet against a streak. It's the dumbest move you can make. And considering Belichick and Brady are 10-0 in the playoffs ... don't they need to lose one first before anyone starts throwing money against them?"

Hey Bill Skins are on a streak of 7-0, Sea hasn't wont a playoff game sense 1984. Do those not count as streaks?

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

I agree with all his points but #3. Sadly, this guy has a pretty good track record with this manifesto and I believe he picked the skins over Tampa last week.

While even if the skins lose I feel it will be a close game, our offense MUST produce tomorrow.

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

He was 2-2 last week, he picked the Skins and Pats, but had the Giants and Bengals on sunday.

For the season he was right around the .500 mark, that's nothing special.

If there is someone alive who is .800 against the spread over the course of a season, and has picked at least 50 games, I would worship the ground he walked on. It's pretty much impossible.

Maybe you saw .800 in picking games straight up, which would still be remarkable. But there's no way someone was .800 against the spread.

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

Whatever--on the "playing not to lose" thing, that what good coaches do. And, surprise, surprise, it won the game. Gibbs recognized that his offense was having trouble with the bucs D, and that his D was doing well. So he left it to the D.

But, as is my refrain on this sort of BS, I'd much rather get negative press. It's better for motivation. And there's such enjoyment in proving these morons wrong.

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

What's really frustrating is after the skins beat the seahawks all of the talking heads won't be heard from. The redskins have never gotten any respect from the media going all the way back to joe gibbs first playoff game. Even after they won their first superbowl it was because of the shorten strike season. Even in their last superbowl season the redskins were favored but they never got whole lot of reconigtion. Joe gibbs is about winning and his style is not i guess flashy enough for the media i don't know. I do likethe fact the redskins beat the number one "D" with just 122 of offense The seahawks have got to be worried about that

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

He's right about us going into a shell after we went up by 2 TD's, as it is written, the dog has returned to it's vomit, and Gibbs after opening up the offense at the players request, couldn't resist the urge to crawl back into a shell and hand over momentum to the Bucs last week. If there reciever doesn't drop that ball I am thouroughly conviced we lose that game.

Hopefully Gibbs get's it through his head you have to play every quarter and cannot win if you play scared, I hope that was just an islolated incident, and he's prepared to put the peddle to the metal against the hawks.

With that said the only blowout I see happening is the colt's game, I believe the Colts are going to hand the steelers their lunch.


As for Portis if he is to hurt to be productive we won't mis a beat with Betts in there.

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

I really didn't see anything different from our offense than we've seen the last 5 weeks, other than the fact someone finally stuffed our running game.

I would add also that our opponents are taking away Brunell's outlets, his security blankets. When Cooley tries to release after pass protecting, they either have him zoned, or in the case of the Eagles, the pass rusher just grabbed him. Ditto Robert Royal. Those aren't big plays but they are the ones that keep the drive alive. And they're plays the Redskins used successfully all year, amazingly. I would have expected Parcells to handle Cooley well, but he tried to man Demarcus Ware up in coverage. Inexplicable. Sometimes I wonder if these coaches really watch films at all.

Something has to give, though. The #2 and #3 WR's are getting single covered whenever Moss and Cooley are not so they have to make plays in the passing game. I know there has been alot of criticism of Jacobs, etc and rightfully so, but the coaches and the quarterbacks also need to adjust and start making an effort to look for those guys. If they are not up to the challenge then we're basically out of luck against this level of competition anyways.

you are exactly right,Cooley has 4 catches for 20 yrds over the last 2 games,and that will def not cut it when your only other threat is moss,since we started this winning streak the stats on our other wr's who caught a pass is this: thrash-1 rec,41 yrds jacobs-2 rec,6 yrds,thats in 6 games people,that is so unbelievably pathetic you wonder how we won 6 games in a row,if seattle shuts down cooley,gibbs has to figure out a way to get the other wr's the ball

Re: Bill Simmons can suck it...

I'd like to see Royal get a few balls his way to help open things up underneath.
