Re: Keys to Winning

Back to Redskin's Football, under the genius of coach Gibbs. Gut Check Games are what he lives for.

Re: Keys to Winning

Ten reasons why the Redskins can beat the Seahawks.

1) Excluding their meaningless late-season games with the Colts and Packers (W and L, respectively), the Seahawks have played four teams with a winning record and have split those contests. The Redskins, meanwhile, have played eleven teams with a winning record and are 6-5 in those games.

2) The Seahawks two wins against teams with winning records came via monumental gaffes by their opponents. In week 7 against Dallas, Drew Bledsoe threw an ill-advised last-second interception that set up a game-winning Seattle FG. Five weeks later, in another home game against an NFC East opponent, Giants kicker Jay Feely missed three makeable FGs in the 4th quarter and overtime. Don't tell me Seattle is invincible at home.

3) In his nine games against teams with records worse than 6-10, Alexander is averaging 131.1 yards and 2.33 touchdowns. In four games against teams with winning records, Shaun Alexander is averaging 85.5 yards and .5 touchdowns. If A. Rod doesn't play in the World Baseball Classic, maybe Shaun A. could take his place, seeing as they both love piling up stats against inferior opponents but never seem to get it done in big games.

4) Everyone talks about how difficult it is to win a Wild Card and Divisional Playoff game on the road. And they're right. Only twice since the NFL expanded to a 12-team playoff in 1990 have teams won road games in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The last team to do it was the 1996 Jacksonville Jaguars. Their quarterback? Mark Brunell.

5) Joe Gibbs has a career 18-5 record in the playoffs and is 19-4 in games played in January.

6) The Seahawks franchise has not won a playoff game since 1984, the longest such current drought in the NFL. Under Holmgren, Seattle is 0-3 in the playoffs, including a home-loss last season to the underdog St. Louis Rams.

7) Mike Holmgren is a very good coach, but he hasn't won a playoff game without Brett Favre. Joe Gibbs, on the other hand, is a very great coach and has won playoff games and Super Bowls with Thiesman, Doug Williams and Mark Rypien.

8) Seattle tackle Walter Jones is one of, if the not the, best offensive lineman in football. This should help quell Philip Daniels, but the strength of the Redskins d-line is not on the outside but in the middle with Cornelius Griffin and Joe Salave'a.

9) The Redskins have played four "rematch" games this season (Dallas, New York, Tampa Bay and Philadelphia). In the first games against those teams, Washington was outscored 95-66. In the rematches, it was Washington that did the outscoring: 118-57. Gibbs took them from a 29-point deficit to a 61-point advantage, which leads me to #10, the most important fact on this list:

10) Week 3: Washington 20 - Seattle 17. It's one thing to think the Redskins won't win. But to think they can't, especially in light of the fact they've already beaten Seattle this season, is absurd.

Thank you for the welcome.

Fans look for a big game from Portis and Moss... The offense will make a huge return in this game.

Re: Keys to Winning

Firstdown, You hit it. Taylor Jacobs - or someone other than SAntana Moss/Chris Cooley/Clinton Portis - has to step up to make defenses PAY for dbl covering Moss and Cooley. Until that happens, the Skins offense is going to be suspect.

First, do not underestimate Seattle. They don't have the best record for nothing. Alexander's success means he's running behind a powerful O-line. John Riggins says Matt Hasselbeck is the best QB in the NFC. He won't be fooled or rattled.

The Skins won because the defense really stepped up to make stops and force turnovers, 14 in the last five games and 3 at Tampa. That's just basic. Cause turnovers, win the game.

Win the line of scrimmage. Running lets our big uglies be aggressive against the Seahawk defense and open holes for Portis/Betts. These two points keep the score manageable. The Skins do NOT want to get in a shootout with Seattle.

Run the ball. Run it again. And again. If they fall behind, but stay within 14 points, keep running the ball up to mid-way in the 4th quarter.

Brunell mobility in the pocket. He buys time for the receivers to get open. An extra half second helps Moss and Cooley. A full second more might help Jacobs and the other guy.

Of course, we know all this. We are fans. If we knew HOW to do it, we would be coaches!

Hail Victory!

My prediction:

Skins win... experts say Seattle wasn't as good as they thought.
