Good call. I hope the coaches are thinking the same thing.

Re: Skins vs. Browns

Some good news on the injury front, per Redskins Insider- Smoot, Carlos, Horton, Samuels, Jason Taylor, Portis, Khary Cambpell, and Pete Kendall were all full go at practice today and are all expected to play. Really the only question marks in this group prior to today were Horton and Smoot. Good to hear they'll be out there on Sunday.

Shawn Springs however did not practice, and will be a game time decision.

Re: Skins vs. Browns

I think this is a must win game. Not a must win game to make the playoffs, but a must win game for this team to be one of the NFL's top level, elite teams. A good strong win this week, set's this team up for a good run and reinforces it's strong play. Last week, we played strong we just fumbled the game away. A loss, and this train could jump the tracks. Championship teams don't lose 2 in a row at home generally, especially to teams that aren't high quality.

It's a must win, if we're looking to be one of the elite.

Re: Skins vs. Browns

Here is the problem...

If we win by anything less then 10 points, everyone will say "yeah, they should have won. That's not very impressive. Why didn't they win by more?"

If we lose, then the sky is falling and the Redskins' early wins were a fluke or over rated. We beat an over-hyped Dallas team, and a bunch of mediocre clubs.

The only way we can really fee good is if we win by 14+ points. Hell, even then we will question the hell out of it.

Don't tell me that even with all the hype and excitement before the Rams game, it wasn't in the back of your head that we never really shut anyone down all season. We neve had the game won before the 4th quarter. Great teams don't make their mark by pulling out 4th qtr comebacks.

Lets kick their ass and shut everyone up!

If the Giants had won, then I would agree with you, but, the fact that they stomped the Giants really makes a win by us, any win, a solid confirmation of the Skins drive, and then the Rams game looks like what it was, solid offense, with turnovers.

Re: Skins vs. Browns

I'm calling 40+ for the 'Skins for the first time in a long time. (seriously, it feels like a decade) Skins 45 Browns 17. JC gets a 350 yard game and CP breaks 150.

Careful Angry. Stranger things have happened. I hope the "D" comes out fired up. I know I would.

OK, now I feel better about this game. Any big name on D was out and Portis was looking bad with the hip flexor. IF they are practicing today, they should be fine come Sunday. Still sort of worried about our secondary though. Sure they practiced, but are they healthy enough to contain Stallworth and Edwards?

Re: Skins vs. Browns

im very concerned. i know cleveland has seen our injury list, and with a very beat up secondary, (all 3 of our starting CBs, and starting safety) you have to believe theyre going to test us all day in the passing game. plus, if springs is out, who is going to match up with braylon edwards? i know carlos rogers did a very good job stopping T.O. in dallas, but remember, spring held him to only 2 catches, carlos let him get 5 more. if carlos had covered him all day, isnt that speculation to believe TO could have had 10 or more? dont get me wrong, i love carlos rogers. hes very quality guy, who is extremely underrated, but at the same time, braylons edwards is very physical, and has about 4 inches and some weight on rogers. Hate to say it, but i feel like this game will be a very hard fought win. I know these are common sense, but ill post them anyway.

5 Keys to the game

Redskins can not, absolutely not give up a turn over. we all saw what happens when your offense gives the ball right back to the opposing team.

Controlling the clock with the run game.
redskins need to run the ball effectively, and nickel and dime their way downfield to get into scoring range. If they can keep the Browns defense on the field the majority of the game, wear them down so they are exhausted in the 4th quarter, we keep their offense off the field, leaving less chances to score.

Continue Jason Campbells INT-free streak.
The Browns have a very underrated secondary, 11th in the leauge. they picked off the reigning superbowl MVP last monday 3 times, one for a score. we all know Eli is a goof, and a little overrated, but we cant just assume the browns were getting the picks on "pure luck"

The lack of pass rush
The redskins have got to get pressure on Anderson. the redskins only have 8 sacks in 6 games and are ranked 26th in sacks. this coming from a redskins team that was a sub-par 16th in the league last year. with andre carter and jason taylor both posting double digit sacks last year, you would at least think the redskins defense would be putting the opposing QBs on their backs more than a measly once or twice a game. with the beat up secondary, well have to rely on our front four and an occasional blitz or two to come up with sacks to create loss of downs and loss of yardage situations, to get their offense off the field.

Special teams.
the redskins are actually 2nd in the league in kickoffs, keeping their opponents at bay, but our punting unit is ranked 31st. i know youre going to say "BUT WE DONT HAVE BROOKS ANYMORE!". ok, ill go with you on that one, but thats only part of it. dont forget were picking up a punter who was booted in his first game this season, but you know what, im with you on this one. Ill take anyone for a punter.. yes, even cooley. our special teams has got to hold them deep in their own territory on kickoffs AND punts. hold them in their own territory, keep them out of scoring range, and force them to punt to us in good field position.

sorry for the long post.
