Re: Redskins vs Vikings Predictions

Interesting predictions on espn.com - out of 5 of them - Ditka, Keyshawn, Emmit, Mort & Jackson - only Mort picked the skins.

Also, all 5 picked buffalo over nyg!

Re: Redskins vs Vikings Predictions

Well once again we have 11 who post as diehard skins fans and spen allot of time here talking skins football only to pick the Vikes in what is our most important game of the season. Not sure how a how someone could pick against thier team when a loss would knock them out of the playoff hopes and once again I hope our players do not go into the game thinking this way. Even is we were playing the Pats I could not pick them to loose. I might not bet on them but I could not pick them to loose.

Skins shut down the one and Collins finds those holes in the Vikes D.
skins 31
vikes 17
We are also due for a game scoring over 30.

Angry Re: Redskins vs Vikings Predictions

I can't wait for Sunday night! I could easily see the Giants losing their last 2, and us pulling into the 5 seed. Peterson has been slowed in his last 2 games, but something about him scares the ?*@& out of me.

Playoff type football is Run, and stop the run.
They do both pretty well this year.

My heart says:

Skins 20
Vikes 17

My head says:

Vikes 31
Skins 28 OT

UGHHH!

Re: Redskins vs Vikings Predictions

It will come down to QB play I feel it will be a low scoring game but exciting game. TC wins in the game in the 2 minute offense TD to Cooley for a final score. Skins 14 Vikes 13

Re: Redskins vs Vikings Predictions

Vikes D is extremely vulnerable to the pass, and playing on the fast surface, Moss and/or ARE will be big factors.

Redskins 27
Vikings 20

Are you serious? Ok,Skins 75 Vikes. 3
Now back to planet earth. Skins 17 Vikes 21.
Picking the Skins to LOOSE hardly means I'm not a fan.
As we all know anything can happen in the NFL.The Skins may beat the hell out of the Vikes and I hope they do but...predictions are just opinions.

Re: Redskins vs Vikings Predictions

Once again, a game too hard to predict based on the variables: Jackson and his often poor decisions, the consistency of our defense, our strategy on offense, and most of all whether MN commits to the running game. My head tells me that if they truly commit we will have a very hard time finding a way to win. At times our rushing-d has been so inconsistent, and when a team starts running it down your throat the momentum of the game totally goes that direction. Our front 7-8 must have their best game of the entire season to win Sunday night. I hope Godfrey has been staying in shape to stuff the run, and likewise that the d-line is completely healthy and ready to inflict some punishment.

On a positive note man-on-man coverage should get us by nearly the whole game, and Smoot, Springs, Torrence and Landry could still have several picks. This should allow us to concentrate on stopping Chester-Fried-Chicken and Adrian v Predator.

Hail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!

No offense Matty but what do you think EVERY team that has played the Vikings this year has had as their gameplan?....and the Vikings lead the league in rushing by a mile, have a winning record and are vying for a playoff berth....I hope the Skins have a better plan than that to win the game.

Jackson is not banged up, maybe you meant Sidney Rice their rookie WR. Winfield is certianly a loss but the rookie Marcus McCauly has played very well in his absence before last week...matter of fact Winfield was out for a good chunck of their winning streak so apparently he isnt THAT important to them.

(OT)
I agree that this one will very likely end in OT but to think that Portis is going for a buck fifty is insane! They have allowed 1 RB to run for a 100 yards this season. They are one of the best run defenses of all time, its possible for Portis to break 100 just extremely unlikely.

They are just beating on teams that are not good or they have just lost their spark (Giants/Lions). If you put the Vikings in against a team alittle better than them like the Browns. The Browns would win. If you can stop their big running plays, you will win. Go Redskins!

Redskins 24
Vikings 10
Or like the Chargers...opps the Vikings beat the Chargers and Peterson set a NFL record with 296 yards in that game....

there were many people here who thought we'd win 7-8 games this year, before the season even started. I don't think anyone picked us to go 16-0. Those losses have to come from somewhere..


I dont get why we have a predictions thread every week and half the thread is used to call out people who pick against the skins, or attack their "fanhood" (if that's not a word it should be)

Maybe we should call it the Pick the Skins or Fuck You thread.

I picked us this week, but I don't pick us every week, and the closer it comes to game day the more nervous I am about stopping their running game.



p.s. not trying to start a pissing match and not saying anything particular to you firstdown, just making an observation.
