That would be the optimum situation it would seem. I think SS is right, whoever is covering Roy Williams is in a for a HELL of a day. The bears cornerbacks and secondary is pretty damn good and they LIT THEM UP today. Rogers, Springs, Smoot, everybody had better be prepared. This team could give a flying shit about giving up points because they KNOW they can put them up.

Our offense definitely needs to put up 28 or more points or we'll be in trouble. It will be an interesting game.

Re: Thoughts on the bye week....

Everyone is talking about using the bye week for the O-Line to "gel", and to work on a pass rush. I think the entire team (minus coaches) had the week off, if I'm not mistaken. I don't think that they did anything but get their mind off football, rest, recover, and re-energize for a normal weeks practice beginning today.

Pretty much. Most of these guys go away from I what I hear. I think Portis went to his hometown to see his little brother play high school football.

Re: Thoughts on the bye week....

you never know until the end of the season, but this looks like really good timing for us.

Re: Thoughts on the bye week....

I know think that this game against the Lions will be very important as far as A Wild Card spot later in the season.

Re: Thoughts on the bye week....

This game is important mainly to DEFINE the team...if they come off that loss to the Giants at home, and lose to the Lions at home...that's gonna say a lot! Gibbs has caught a lot of slack after that last game about being conservative, now he'll face a team that puts up a lot of points but has also given up a lot of points...I can't wait to see what the gameplan will be!!! After seeing what the eagles did to them, is he still gonna come out running on 1st and 2nd down???

That almost sums up the biggest question about this team. Sometimes in press conferences Gibbs talks like nobody can expect the Skins to put up big pts. It actually scares me. W/ all the offensive weapons how can we not be expected to put up big numbers?

Re: Thoughts on the bye week....

Well we have to try to put up big numbers this week. The friggin' Lions broke the NFL record with 34 4th quarter points... Must win game.

glad you pointed this out. The players don't practice an extra week, but the coaches were working I'm sure.

I bet there was some serious discussion between Gibbs & AS over the 2 minute O. If anything can be gained in the bye week other than rest from injuries, it's the staff ironing out its clock mgmt. problems. This stuff goes back to 04. We got through it in the philly game, but it's not gonna happen that way every time.

In addition, I fear that Gibbs & AS are not on the same pg. Someone pointed this out in another thread, there seems to be a lack of identity on offense. Maybe it's just the injuries to the o-line & JC's maturation process & time will take care of it.

I hope the o-line gels & the biggest thing is to stop the penalties on 1st & 2nd down setting up those 3rd & long situations.

He may have gone to his brothers game but the skins site said he was around getting treatment on his knee. I take the by week and forget about football as I golfed Saturday and went fishing on Sunday. I think the fish took the day off too.
