I was unimpressed by the NO defense. They did get some good pressure on Garcia. But Tampa was still able to move the ball well. This was due in part because Tampa averaged over 7 yards per rush. Hello Clinton Portis!
good post lotus and welcome aboard aswell buddy!!

go skins!

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

Let's be crystal clear right now. IF THE REDSKINS CONTINUE TO PLAY AS THEY HAVE THE LAST MONTH, WE WILL NOT WIN A GAME.
Now, as for the Saints, we will see Marques Colston playing a very similar role to Burress. Carlos Rogers will once again have to prove to me that he is more than a combine all-star and physical specimen. Speed and ability does nothing at the NFL level if you can't see what's going on before the snap.
Drew Brees is dangerous and if he has time we are in trouble because they have TONS of speed and talent catching the ball. Shockey will kill us just like he did in NY. Henderson and Meachem are dangerous too and I have said from the jump that Reed "What did you say" Doughty is a liability around anyone with talent on offense. Springs is nicked up and so is smoot.
THAT'S JUST DEFENSE. Not even speaking of Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas. (don't be shocked if Thomas has a great game either)
On offense, we stink. We need to play up to the Saints as if they are better than us because they are right now. They have two NASTY defensive ends who will get pressure on Campbell who apparently doesn't need pressure to throw bad passes anyway. Our only real hope is to spread the field, run Portis on some counters, delays and screens hoping that that will open up play passes or pump and gos.

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

I'm sure the Saints have improved but I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel. We get our first win Sunday. I'm looking for our defense to play very physical after what happened in New York and our o-line will redeem themselves. I also expect Kelly to contribute. If they concentrate on Portis like I think they will, look for our passing game to open up. I think the Giants are better than the Saints. One win does not make a season just like one loss does'nt. For those of you fortunate enough to attend the game...ROCK THE HOUSE! We are pissed and we are going to play mean!

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

If they do the same thing this week as they did last week and the last two preseason games, it's going to be a very long season. I have faith they can turn it around, but they cannot be as predictable as they were last week. I hope they have a sense of urgency this week when it's crunch time and not run the ball.

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

ehh you cant blame fans..they need SOMETHING to give them hope. So far the pathetic showing that is our offense has given people reason to be upset. There has to be some potential to imbibe patience. I think we will have a better game this week. The saints are a hot team but so much changes week to week in the nfl. All we can do as skins fans is just hope somehow zorn can right this ship!

People who boo need to get hit in the face with a hammer.

Seriously what's with all the aggression? Let's look at some of your comments recently

"People who boo need to get hit in the face with a hammer."

"I wanted to see his leg snap in half"

"I'm pissed Tom Brady's leg didn't snap in half"

"Those people need to get hit by a bus"

I mean I agree with you that people are jumping the gun, but damn...

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

As has been said, we need a big time of possession advantage in this one. The Saints are a big play team, 3 TD over 40 yards yesterday I believe, so we've got to limit their chances to make the big strike..

With Bush, it's going to be imperative for our LB and safeties to take proper tackling angles. Doughty and McIntosh can't overshoot because Bush will be long gone if they do..

I'm glad it's on grass and not turf also.. Let's hope for a nasty weather system to get parked right over the stadium for about 3 hours on Sunday!

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

I'm worried about the Saints' front 7. Sed Ellis is going to have an immediate impact on the line for them and I'm wondering how our protection will hold up.

On D, we'll definitely have our hands full. As everyone has stated, if we don't pressure up front, Brees will have a field day. They've got speed on the outside of Colston (Henderson) and we've always been susceptible to Shockey. Contain Bush!!!

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

Our players are catching a lot of crap right now from the same fans who were so proud of them for making the playoffs during the same year we tragically lost Sean Taylor. These are the same players, but learning a completely different offense. The problem last week was EXECUTION. ANY play that is not executed properly WILL NOT WORK. I believe Sherman Smith and Jim Zorn will have a good game plan for the Saints. I believe the players would rather win than lose and will play hard. If we execute the plays we will win. Execution comes with repetition. REAL GAME repetition. We can beat the saints and if we execute we will. Kelly can make a big difference to this offense and eventually he will. It will take the offense a while to get things down pat, but once they do.. WATCH THE F**K OUT. I fully expect us to play better than last week ( Jason will be in the shot gun more often ) and to continually progress as we become more and more comfortable in this new offense.

And about the fans...SmootSmack I don't know if you have season tickets to the skins, but I do. They have been in my family for over 50 years, and the trash I see up there makes me sick. They boo Gibbs, they boo JC, and they boo Zorn. The last thing anyone would need when they are down is a good booing! I know there are "real" skins fans out there that know and understand football. Washington has one of the smartest fans in the world, and we have one hell of a HOF coach to thank for some of that. I learned a lot from coach Gibbs, and the number one thing I learned was to ride out the storm. Don't jump the gun, and good things will happen. So yea maybe I do get a little aggresive, I just love my team more than anything else and hate when people that know little bash them. We as skins fans are better than that, and I hope that they cheer their faces off sunday just like me.
Just tone it down a notch, that's all we ask

From what Zorn said, at least 2 of our false start penalties came on plays that were called specifically for Cooley. We definitely need him to have a nice game. The Saints have a good front 4, but aren't particularly strong at LB or in the secondary. I know, I know, they have Vilma, but he's coming off a knee injury, and Jason David and Mike McKenzie don't really scare me at corner.

Re: Looking ahead to the Saints

I just heard Sherman Smith say they will put Campbell in the shotgun more often as he has requested and if he does'nt play well we'll see what his excuse is then. Damn. That should take care of that.
