Fact or Fiction

Washington defense will hold Detroit to less than 25 points.

I say FACT.

The Redskins offense will have more success against the Lions defense than they have had against their first three opponents. I predict more methodical time consuming drives for scores. This will put less pressure on the defense, and they will be able to stay fresh most of the game as they won't be out there the majority of the time.

Loss to Giants + Extra week off + Playing the Lions = Win

Re: Fact or Fiction

I'd say fact as well- while the lions pose an intimidating array of offensive options, we will be coming off a bye week that gives us 2 weeks to heal up, and develop strategies...While i find G Williams to be blindly arrogant (though he's gotten better this year in terms of altering his vaunted "system") I have faith that he will come up with a plan to lock down those WRs.

Fact

Defense will bounce back after a rough outing against the Giants.

Isn't that the next game?

I'd rather talk about the Lions game than dwell on last weeks loss.

Figures. I'm not going to subject myself to that. I don't think I'll watch any coverage (other than games) until next week. Hopefully the hating will have died down and they can focus on the Detroit game.

Peter King still had us ranked #11 in his Fine Fifteen. That kind of surprised me after a bad home loss.

As for fact or fiction, I say fiction. I see this game as a shootout with Gibbs allowing JC to go after a shaky secondary. Final score - Skins 37 Lions 31.

Fact, we'll hold them to less than 25 points.

but will we score more than 25 points? that would be a first this year.

Re: Fact or Fiction

We CAN do it. This means not sitting our corners 10 yards from the line of scrimmage. These are some big physical freakish receivers we go up against and if we can't tackle Plaxico we could be in some big trouble. We are also going to need our safeties to help over the top on the deep crossing routes or posts. We can do it, but I don't think it will be that easy.

Re: Fact or Fiction

As long as we get back on track especially on 3rd down situations on both sides of the ball, we should be ok against the Lions.

Re: Fact or Fiction

I say fact but it seems like the Skins have a tough time scoring more than 20 points so even if the D holds the Lions under 25 they could still lose.
