Re: Redskins vs. Lions predictions

Mike Tanier puts this game in perspective, like only he can:

Quote:
Redskins at Lions: Last week, in their "close call" loss, the Lions had the ball for less than 20 minutes. Dan Orlovsky had zero passing yards until midway through the second quarter, when the score was already 21-0. The Lions' offense consisted mostly of one 96-yard pass to Calvin Johnson and two 54-yard Jason Hanson field goals, one of which was made possible by two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties by the Texans. If there was a Hall of Fame for non-predictive events, these plays would have busts. If the Redskins give up a 99-yard touchdown, commit five 15-yard penalties, and get victimized by a couple of 62-yarders, they'll only win by a field goal.

Re: Redskins vs. Lions predictions

I predict no one in the Detroit area will get to see their crappy team play on television this Sunday (per PFT):

DETROIT RESIDENTS SPARED OF WATCHING CRAPPY FOOTBALL

Posted by Mike Florio on October 23, 2008, 3:39 p.m.
The downtrodden Lions have enjoyed a sellout streak throughout the seven darkest years any NFL team has endured.
But the run ends Sunday, when the home game against the Redskins wonít appear on local television.
The Lions had previously sold out every game played at Ford Field, which opened in 2002. The run of 51 consecutive sellouts began with the final game of the 2001 season.
Asked about the possible non-sellout, Lions coach Rod Marinelli said, ďNo comment.Ē
Actually, he didnít. Hereís what he said: ďItís our fault ó thatís my fault. If we were playing better, and if we were executing better and we were winning more, then [the fans] would come.Ē
We appreciate Marinelliís willingness to take the blame, but itís not as if the Lions have been tearing it up for the past seven years. We think that the economy is factoring into the end of the streak, coupled with the fact that Ford Field has now been around long enough to have lost its novelty
A total of 5,000 tickets were unsold as of 72 hours before kickoff. No 24-hour extension was given, which seems to confirm something we heard earlier this year about this specific aspect of the process.
As the legend/theory/rumor goes, an extension is provided only if the team has already lined someone up (often, the local television station airing the game) to buy any leftover tickets. Then, a 24-hour extension is announced in the hopes of getting folks who really want to see the game to buy tickets under the premise that thereís a chance the game wonít be shown on television locally.
Meanwhile, a behind-the-scenes sellout already has been arranged, and the folks who buy tickets during the 24-hour window help to reduce the size of the pill that a third party ultimately will swallow.

Coach Z on the offense against Detroit: "I don't know if we're even gonna gain a yard,...but we're gonna come out and try." Considering the sinister look on his face during the latter part, i get the feeling we are going to smoke these fools. but who knows im goin with

Re: Redskins vs. Lions predictions

OK, they shouldn't be able to run run on us and they won;t get much passing. Their ST's aren't too good, so I can't see them scoring more than 6-10 points.

We should be able to run all over them - I believe Portis single game high is 224 yards and maybe he can beat that. We won't go to town if the run game is working, so maybe c. 2-250 yards. If we can get 4-500 yards offense, we should score 28-35 points at least. 3-4 TD's on the ground, 1-2 TD's in the air and/or a FG or two.

Overall, I go 31-6 Skins.

Lions 12
Redskins 38

I think S. Alexander will have a TD, Portis will get a TD, Moss will have 2 TDs, and D. Thomas gets his first.

Re: Redskins vs. Lions predictions

Heres what Peter King of SI thinks:


Washington Redskins (5-2) at Detroit Lions (0-6)
It makes no sense, picking Dan Orlovsky to win an NFL game. But I've had pretty good luck with the upset recently -- Miami over San Diego, St. Louis over Dallas -- and I've got the Washington-taking-Detroit-lightly feel here, along with the Marinelli-making-life-miserable-for-his-losers feel. Detroit will play very hard and get a few bounces, finally.

Prediction: Detroit Lions 20, Washington Redskins 17


WTF is he thinking

He's a notorious Redskins hater. This shit is normal from him when it comes to our burgundy and gold.

Re: Redskins vs. Lions predictions

We've already fallen into our trap game a couple of weeks ago. We come out guns blazing and win big, 34-6.

Re: Redskins vs. Lions predictions

Last time I saw the Lions Skins play in Detroit it was in the Silverdome in 2000 and Neon Deion let Johnny Morton blow him away, plus Brad Johnson threw a dumbass late INT to seal the Skins fate. I think the Skins will win something like 35-10, but I am worried it might end up being like the Rams game. We might play outright flat and the Lions are desperate. They might not have Kitna/Williams, but they still have Calvin Johnson and our secondary is beat to hell. Orlovsky isn't the most accurate passer, but he does have a good arm. As of today there is still 6,000 tickets left so the game probably will be blacked out here in Detroit. I got my ticks cheap and look forward to seeing my Skins win in Detroit!!!!!! I hope to god Zorny lets Jason open up the air game!!!!!
