8-8? wtf?

If you are going to make up numbers to try to prove a point, it's probably better to reconsider making it in the first place.

The Lions offense is their strength, so if we can run the ball well and sustain drives, GET TD's, and keep their offense on the sidelines...that's our best chance of winning and I'm sure that's what Gibbs is planning on doing. Lions rank 17th in the NFL against the run and 30th against the pass....they should be able to sustain drives!!!

The redskins will beat the lions. The key to this game is how successful the redskins running game will be on offense. On defense, the key will be taking away big passing plays and stopping the run.

Sounds like redskins football.

They've also beaten, among other, the Jaguars, Saints, Seahawks, and Eagles when not thought possible.

Smootsmack listed 8 teams he thought we should've beaten and did, and I listed 8 teams I thought we should've beaten and didn't. That's where the 8-8 comes from. 8-8 against lowly teams isn't confidence inspiring as we head into this weekend is my point.

We will defeat the lions at home.
remember they gave up 56 points a week ago. "Weak" is relative, but yes, I'd consider them weak.

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

Yes they can. This comes down to the defense. I'm looking for our secondary to step up big time with multiple picks. We can get to Kitna and he will make mistakes on Sunday.

Then they bounced back last week and scored how many points on chicago in the fourth quater to win a big game?

That's still a team that is 3-1, they are in no way by me considered a weak team by ANY stretch. They are very dangerous, and if a team like the lions is taken even lightly they will burn you....time after time!

Without Portis and Moss this is a very winnable game for the Lions. This could be a bad situation for us. I think we can pull out but it will be a close game. I will be there !

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

Moss is out. The Washington Post reporter who follows the skins got this from a team official. Moss could be out beyond the Detroit game. I think Portis will play but sparingly.
That said, we should win this game, and if we don't I think it's a turning pt downward for the team. We need to control the clock through this game and if Betts can get into a rythm running downhill it will happen. Lions are week defensively anyway. I've said before that Thrash in place of Moss isn't too bad a situation. Thrash has good talent getting open and best hands on the team. Caldwell will get work in the game too, and I think he will be a big surprise for us. Anyway, I think we are the superior team by far, and this should be a big win. Defense has to step up, but Smoot should be healthy (and hungry) and I think Landry and Taylor are due for some huge plays.

Hogs.net. I cannot remember the name of the Post reporter. Basically, a blogger emailed that reporter asking if there was an update and then posted the reporter's response on the site. Moss was said to be out possibly beyond the Lions game. I don't think this should be a surprise to anyone. He gets hurt at least a couple times a season and usually heals slowly. But I'm also saying I don't think it should be that big a deal. Time of possession will be huge this Sunday, and w/ Thrash (in for Moss) getting open and consistently catching passes I think we can still have a real effective passing game to set up the run.

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

For those wondering, this is what MTRedskinsfan is referring to (I think)

Quote:
I e-mailed Jason La Confora and he personally told me that Moss was out for more than one game and McCardell is being signed due to injury. Here is exactly what he said:

From: "Jason F LaCanfora" <lacanforaj@washpost.com>
Date: Sun, 30 Sep 2007 17:44:29 -0400
To: "Robert Hunt" <fands57@yahoo.com>

I think santana is going to miss a few games don't see them dumping lloyd till after the season.
Cheers
To be clear. This is what JLC thinks is going to happen. While he may be right, if we went with what he thought all the time then Dre Bly would be a Redskin.

Anyway, last I've heard Moss is officially day-to-day...but then again aren't we all.
