The Skins have no O and that makes winning tough.

Saints 24
Skins 10

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

I say Skins 24 Saints 21. I think we come out and take this one. The Saints D isn't all that, and having 10 days rest in between games will help us. Plus it's the home opener so I think we'll come out fired up. I'd like to see a deep pass or two in this one, and I think Portis will go over 100yds with a TD. Brees still throws at least 2 TDs though, even with Colston out.

I look for Kelly and/or Thomas to contribute as well.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

I spect our d is going to be fucking jacked up this weekend. That said the Saints will still put up 10 to 14 points on breakout plays and... I don't see us scoring more than 6 or 7 points a game early in the season.

I think I hate myself.

that's strange to me, because when I PICK a game, I pretend I have my house riding on it... its different than just which team I HOPE will win... I hope we never lose, but that's the reality.

To me picking the skins every week is like if someone were to award you or your family a billion dollars if you correctly guess your year of natural death... and you blurt out "never". I just dont have that mentality... im a realist.

I believe the extra practice time and Zorn's disappointment/realization of mistakes will keep him on their case and expect perfection. It will happen eventually and I'd be willing to bet sooner than later. Zorn seems like he'll really drive the players into shape.

Our defense played really well against the Giants, especially in the second half. We should be able to contain the Saints, especially without Colston and their only healthy RB being Reggie Bush, who isn't much as a RB. (as a WR...that's a different story) Thomas was hurt slightly in Week 1, McAllister is pretty much finished. They have a lot of WRs, but no one really that great other than Colston. Shockey can always lose you a game or win one for you.



I say Redskins 20, Saints 13

(If you stop getting Angry about it, I'll stop posting it for FUN).
While your list irks me, your analysis is on point. Well played sir.l

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

It is early in the season and I think that our defense can hold their offense to under 20 points. Their backfield isn't like the Giants where you basically have a lineman in the backfield plowing his way into our defensive secondary. I like our chances, but we really need this game to protect our homefield advantage. That being said, we will be getting harder challenges from teams like the steelers and the browns where we may lose those games and it will be imperative to stay afloat in the NFC playoff chase.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

I didn't predict last week but I voted for the Giants.

It's the home opener.. If Zorn/JC don't want bad press and the boo-birds all over their ass.. Its a must win.

Skins - 17
Saints - 16

I disagree. I know a W is a W and an L is an L... BUT, I think if the offense looks good and scores 2-3 TDs and we lose a close game to a high octane offense, the press won't be awful. I think progress is what's most important.

If we come out and look as uncomfortable and lost as we did last Thursday, then every bit of bad press will be deserved.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

defense will be better (healthier springs taylor and landry) - the saints are down colston, and duece and stecker missed last game too... so if our offense can show some signs of life, it's perfectly winnable. our D tends to gameplan well for this kind of team too.

i homer'd my pick, but i can see us losing to offensive ineptitude just as easily.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

I think we lose, but we'll play much better. The Saints don't have a scary pass rush like the Giants, so I think JC will find a rhythm and Portis will gain some yards on the ground.

But in the end Drew Brees methodically gets to us. Even without Colston, the Saints have a lot of weapons to cover. I think we'll take care of the deep threat OK, and neutralize Patten and D Henderson. But Shockey and Bush will get us with underneath stuff and Brees will make just enough plays.
