LJ Smith isn't too bad. DeShean Jackson is a legit deep threat and a healthy Reggie Brown had 80 yds on Sunday in Chicago. Westbrook was our focus last year and he still killed us in our house. Just sayin...

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

LJ Smith is constantly banged up again this year and has been a non-factor.

I think the next four games will be the coming out party for the rookie WRs and TE. The more Moss and ARE find themselves fielding punts, the more formations the rookies should be in.

Im guessing tough close game. Who ever makes the least amount of mistakes wins
Of course I have been thinking of the Skins Eagles game ALL day/week, and the more I think about it, the more the coaching stands out as my biggest concern. Andy Reid is going to look at everything Zorn and the Skins have done to date, the good and the bad, and he will have his team ready to play.
I guess its gonna be another Sunday pacing up and down in front of the TV!

I expect the Eagles to rest Westbrook at least one more week if they value their season. If he's having problems cutting and breaking runs, don't play against the Skins.

What? How can you make a prediction that could reasonably be conceived to not be 100% sure of a redskins victory, nay, Domination? You are not a true fan. You should go find a cowboys board and post there. Blaaaahhahhahahha.





Sorry, just had to.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

I'm afraid that JC's first turnover comes in Week 5. Depends on how he reacts to that. If he keeps calm and puts it behind him, we'll be fine, if he gets rattled and erratic, we're probably screwed. I'd love to see CP in the same form he was last Sunday. Absolute beast. Prediction: Skins 28 Eagles 17. 100+ for CP.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

they will run with Portis more this week to keep the pressure off of JC, but they will still use ARE and Moss to spread the field and keep the D Honest. I do think Devin Eleven will have a break out game, and we will not see much out of Kelly till next year. Just my thoughts, but this is the team I hate almost as much as Dallas. GO SKINS AND GO GREG NOVIS!

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

This game makes me more nervous than last week's, maybe because I have a certain expectation that we can win this one. It is going to be a typicl NFC grudge match.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

Please God let this team be for real. I think it's been referenced in a thread before, but the past four years this team has gone 3-1 three out of the four years to start the season. Then, unexplicably fall in some kind of midseason funk that crushes our hopes and aspirations. Only to save us from utter despair, and play crazy inspired football that keeps us on edge towards the end of the season.

I for one, would like to see this team play for homefield advantage towards the end of the season. I know it's too early to be talking about the p-word, but one can only hope.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

I also can't help but think that the eagles were the last team that S. Taylor played against. Hopefully this team can channel that memory of Sean to inspire them in this important divisional game.

I honestly think part of that had to do with Gibbs. If we got up 3-0 in a game he'd be content to run the ball into the ground. Plus he was so tightly wound, and a coaches attitude often translates into how the team plays on Sundays. I think Joe got this team headed in the right direction as far as personnel and getting Danny in line, but I also think his style and attitude of coaching was hard for the players to live up to for 17 weeks. Thus the drastic ebbs and flows we went through during his second tenure. We're loose and having fun now (not to the arrogant extent of Cowgirls, but still). I think that makes a difference. Portis said it himself, under Gibbs it was always so tight, so serious, always all about not letting down this Hall of Fame hero.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

Our OL needs to do what they did last week, contol the running game and the pass rushers. Our DL needs to put pressure on McNabb. I would start Horton over Doughty, i watched the last Dallas drive and saw Doughty get burned 3 straight times, 2 by Witten and 1 by Miles Austin for a TD. The Philly receivers are good, not great and should be respected, especially the rookie who could be dangerous..

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

Since this isn't the official prediction thread (right?) I'm gonna sandbag a little longer.

There are three themes for this game I expect to emerge: 1) First and foremost this will be a coaching chess match. Reid will have studied his brains out finding our weakness on both sides of the ball and look to exploit everything he can. Zorn will do the same, and while he's at an experience disadvantage IMHO he has a bit of an overall advantage because I believe win or lose we have the more talented roster; 2) Highly unlikely the Eagles score more than 13 or 14 points - our defense is locked in right now and we haven't even seen Landry break-out yet, which I predict happens this Sunday and I'm talking INT action and some highlight worthy hits; 3) our d-line got no pressure on Romo and I'm sure no respect from Blache this week - I expect them to come out swingin against Philly even w/o the services of JT.
