Their defense is a very good and I know they will be scheeming to jump short routes during blitzes to see if they can get a pick.

I am not going to make a prediction, but the pressure is totally on the Eagles and virtually none is on the Skins....however, if the Skins win this game, which is inconstant with this teams mid year performances in the past few years, I will officially jump on the Kool Aid bandwagon....ps...I still voted a 3 in confidence in Zorn so I realize I am a skeptic. Go Skins....steal one from a desperate Philly for us!
Correct, Eagles have to win this division game
AND Mcnabb is healthy and playing better than I have seen him in...maybe ever.
BUT, make no mistake........Skins WILL win!

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

Dear Redskin fans,
I can understand your excitedness over this year's wins especially the one over the cowgirls, but make no mistake..Reid and company will have an answer to JC's no-turnover season. Philly's D ranks first in sacks (17) and third in total ypg (245). There are also 5 fumbles recovered of 7. Im not stating who will win, but that sunday's game marks the beginning of JC turnovers.
Some Note Worthies:
1. Some good match ups to watch are JJ vs. Juqua Parker (DE) and the reverse, Carter vs. Tra Thomas. Who will own who?
2. True, DeSean Jackson IS good for one bone head play sunday. But be honest, hasnt he performed better than most rookie WRs this year, if not most vets?
3. Buckhalter is no Westbrook. I needn't say more.

Hurry up Sunday, we can't wait any longer.

While I agree your D will bring the heat, sack JC, rush some throws, but I dont see how you can make a blanket statement that JC will throw a pick.

That is arrogance, and I really hope we don't turn it over mainly to make people like you suffer for your hubris. Otherwise I agree with everything else.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

I actually think this game will be tougher then the Cowgirls game for these reasons.

1. It is hard to win back to back road games against quality opponents.
2. There is often some letdown after getting all hyped up to beat the girls and then going into their house and winning a close game and trying to keep that up the next week.
3. Philly is a tough stadium to play in.
4. This will be by far the toughest defense JC has faced and I am not sure our OL will be able to hold up which will require Portis and Cooley to help out and this could kill our offense. I think they will blitz the crap out of JC.

I think this is going to be a fun game to watch and will come down to turnovers. If JC can handle the pressure then we will win. If they get to him, then it will be a long day.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

if the redskins can play as hard as they did in Dallas, they will win. that's what separates the winning teams from scrubs. every week they bring it

BAD NEWS, Springs may not play
The Associated Press: Springs appears unlikely for Redskins vs. Eagles

Westbrook will likely play and Jason Taylor likely wont.
This sure evens things up...this is gunna be an uphill fight

That is huge... Springs is the lynch pin of that secondary. Time for our other guys to step it up. Carlos is really impressing me so far.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

well i just played the eagles in my fantasy madden franchise and ben roethelsberger led the skins to a 21-0 win and maurice jones-drew had a big game as well. i predict an identical replica, but don't get too excited because calvin johnson will tear an abdominal muscle in the game too :/

I believe that Jim Johnson will dial up his full complement of blitz packages, and the outcome will be determined by how well the Skins O-line and Campbell cope with them. If Campbell hits a couple big plays in these situations, I like the Skins chances. If he's hit and lays the ball on the ground, it could be a long day. Regardless, I'm expecting one of the most physical games of the year - NFC East RULES!!!

Dear Philly fan,
I can dignify your jackassery (endorsed by MK72) no longer. This game is being played and the results already known on a higher plain than perhaps you understand. Andy and the boys are mere pawns........Destiny, as the victory, resides with the Skins.
And....don't forget to smell the roses

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

I would say Skins, but it looks like Westbrook is going to play and we are going to be without Shawn back there. Who is Shawn's backup? He is going to get picked on I bet. Other than that, I think we will be in fine shape to take the game. JT being out will hurt a bit, but nothing the other members of the crew can't handle. Westbrook isn't going to be 100% if he plays either. I am just bummed Shawn is out for such a big game. After the Eagles, the strength of schedule isn't so bad for a few weeks IMHO. He definitley could have missed the Lions game. but not this week!!!!!

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

I'm starting to question Shawn Springs' toughness. I'm sure I'll get bashed for this, but we REALLY need him to play this week. He already missed one NFC east game, and we paid for it greatly. I don't really trust Smoot starting this game.

Re: Thoughts on Eagles/Redskins

According to the fantasy experts, we are going to have a horrible week


Barber should bounce back in Week 5; TE Davis losing value fast

He has Campbell as a Sit'em, Portis, Moss, and our D under the Sit'em category.

In contrast, McNabb, Jackson, and their D as either Start'em or sleepers.

We all know that this means nothing. Its like the guy on ESPN that told people to sit Larry Johnson last week. How'd that work out?
