1. i doubt yall will be able to get too drew without blitzing. we have a great pass blocking line (fewest sacks given up past 2 seasons) and drew is very very aware. yall will have to send the occasional blitz too get too drew.

2. again, this is nolonger a mediocre defense. they will be in the redskins face all game long. the corners will stay glued to the recievers, and campbell will spend the day on the ground.
but i'm yet too figure out why the corners play so far back on 3rd down???
Were they chasing Earnest Graham so they could knock him down after his gashing runs? You guys had a home opener against a division opponent and your "new and improved non-medicore" defense got lit up by a very average offense. Your LB's looked flat and this supposedly improved front 4 allowed over 7 yards per run against Tampa- they don't have an OL or RBs as strong as ours. Plus you're coming to our house.

I know you want to stand up for your team, and that's cool. But face it, the New Orleans Saints are NOT a physical football team, and have a rather soft defense until you prove otherwise. Not trying to hate, just stating facts.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

I think that we should win by about 3 points. The offense improves this week and the defense continues on its track of dominance. Besides NO running game isn't like the Giants they are really more of a pass first type of team. We should be able to generate pressure on Brees and force some turnovers.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

This would be a good week to get our passing attack going. Saints passing D is weak. A good game from our line in pass blocking would be a big plus. Let's do it.

The Saints D isn't great, but their front four is pretty impressive. Granted, they sacked Garcia just twice, but they were up in his junk all afternoon.

Their pass rush looked pretty good, but at the expense of stopping the run. They got gashed on the ground (146 yards- at home).

And it looks like a rookie corner (Tracy Porter) will be covering Santana.

I don't know if we'll win, but I think the offense can make some nice progress.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints predictions

Sorry guys, I thought the Gmen would win by 13 last week and was close. NO will win this game by the same type of margin I predicted last week against the Gmen. Saints win 27-14. The Saints do indeed look better on D, and even without Colston, have a lot of talent to work with. Unless our O can get out of its funk, I just don't see a W on Sunday. Our D will keep this a respectable game though.

I can't see our Defense coming in as flat, or the Saints offense as hyped, as last week against the Giants. Your 13, as close as it was, could have easily been way off if the Giants didn't storm out the gate. This week I hope the Skins are the ones that come out fired up in the home opener. The Saints are 1 higher in the ESPN Power Rankings then the Giants, so it would be some redemption to beat them. Maybe quiet down some of the naysayers as well.

Depends on our O line I guess. Has to give JC adequate protection against the NO front line. I can see JC fumbling some balls if he gets sacked like 4-5 times.

I am curious do you think the Saints have a better pass rush than the Giants?

I think if we see anything this week it will be what JZ's learning curve will be as a play caller and game planner. Those seem to be his biggest stumbling blocks.
