From memory I think it was San Francisco in 05.

There's no question that Moss would be a bigger loss than Portis. Our roster is built to sustain RB injuries, but our depth is so lacking at WR even with Moss in the lineup it's hard to imagine us really threatening to stretch the field.

Randle El can get deep, but obviously losing Moss would hurt since he's one of the best deep threats in the game today. Also, it would be nice if we could get Cooley more involved with the passing game and less involved with blocking.

We put up 40+, and the Defense gets 6 sacks and 4 picks from Kitna and hold them to 13.



Bitches!


thats about the funniest thing I've heard all year! us score 40 points,and LLoyd gets a td too :yeahright

Maybe playing a against a explosive offense will make the coaches call a less conservative game. Or if we have to come back from behind we'll get to see what our offense can do this year, but possibly w/o Moss or Portis.

I really wish we had more then a week to practice, oh wait...

Re: Can the redskins beat the lions without portis and moss

I dont know that having portis or moss would make a difference. With those two playing we haven't been able to score enough points. Everyone keeps saying its the Lions, we will beat them no problems. While the die hard fan in me wants to believe that we can and will beat them, I have my doubts. the Lions have 3 to 4 receivers that can get the ball and Kitna is playing pretty good. Now you add Kevin Jones to Tatum Bell and that is a pretty decent 1,2 punch. Offensively they move the ball and put some points up. If we sit back in the cover 3 crap and dont blitz and apply pressure to Kitna they will eat us alive. It may not be big plays but they will methatically move the ball down the field.

offensively if we dont get cooley involved with some balls down the middle of the field our receivers will not get open down field on the outside. We will need to score a minimum of 28 points to keep this close, and I just dont know if we can put that many points up. we haven't put that many points up in quite a while. If we can get a decent run game going early i think those big plays down field will open up for Randel el, Reche, and maybe moss if he plays. I would like to see some of WR screens we use to run so well. Detroit plays somewhat aggressive and that could be a big play if executed.

go SKINS!!

whats it gonna be ? how do you guys feel about this game? i admit im nervous.
Stop jumping the gun, overreacting and spreading lies.

Seriously, they took off a Monday practice. Don't panic. Now if they miss practice all week and especially Friday, then get nervous. But until then...calm down!

Both Randy T. and Jon J. Having lost the right half of the O line is more than most teams can bear.

We have trouble scoring points w/ Moss. If we don't have him it's not looking good cause Det. is going to score.

Re: Can the redskins beat the lions without portis and moss

I'm hoping for that 'breakout game' from our offense. That is , if we're even to have one this year.

JC needs time to develop and the right side of the line needs time to gell. Maybe our new RG will be a big help in preparing for Detroit since he played there. Plus, our new wr's need time to get in synch. At least they're both vets who should be able to step in.

I'm not so worried about Portis missing practice, but Moss is a different story. Sounds like his injury is more serious. This game is definitely a tough one. We can hope that the Lions have a letdown after the win over chicago.

Re: Can the redskins beat the lions without portis and moss

This week is a classic example of everybody needs to step up and pick up the slack for those who can't play due to injury. I think Moss and Portis will play, maybe not the whole game, but just their presence will help. I expect a big game from someone we wouldn't normally count on, I just don't know who yet. Maybe it is Lloyd, maybe Betts or the Rock. Our D has to be solid though. We can't get into a shootout with this team, we just weren't built for it.

Re: Can the redskins beat the lions without portis and moss

As of now, we are challenged to beat practically anyone WITH Portis and Moss. I'm not one of the many doomsday posters here, but without either one of these guys, we will definately be challenged. Thats not to say that Betts can't pick up Portis' slack, but Betts lacks that extra umph that Portis brings. And our receivers? Well, you've already discussed those issues. I'm not a pro athlete, but I've had tendinitis in my shoulder for some time and on occasion, it hurts like hell and I can't even sleep. Granted, it's not my knee and I'm sure Clinton has a much higher threshold for handling pain than I ever will, but you gotta wonder how that is wearing on him. He's a tough SOB, so I doubt he'll let it stop him.

Looks like we're gonna need a breakout game from our offense AND defense!!! It's time for this team to show what they're made of.

Re: Can the redskins beat the lions without portis and moss

We need to win against Detroit and it doesn't matter how.

I do not expect this game to be a "breakout" game on offense. It's hard to have a breakout game without two of your starting o-lineman, and possibly two of your starting offense weapons.

What I hope to see, is an offense similar to the end of 2006. We'll try and shove the ball up their throats, and pray for turnovers and plays on special teams. This is a very winnable game, but we'll need to control the clock.

I'm really hoping we can pull a close one out, because I really don't think they're is any other way to do it. Godspeed redskins.

Prediction: Redskins 20 Lions 17 (OT)

Every NFL team has injuries. It's not an excuse. Det played w/out Calvin Johnson last week.
