Redskins vs. Lions Gameday thread

I look for us to come out and smack this Lions team right in the mouth. No trap game here we need to prove/show who we are.

We are by leaps and bounds a better football club. Lets make today a repeat of last year Skins match up with this club at FedEx. Dish out another real pounding!

We will win this game in a convincing manner.

Don't forget the REDSKINS KICK OFF pre-game show comes on shortly.

Comcast SportsNet Washington DC, Baltimore & The Mid-Atlantic

Come on 1pm. Thoughts.

WEATHER MIGHT BE A FACTOR . . . AT FORD FIELD
Posted by Mike Florio on October 25, 2008, 10:01 p.m.

Here’s some interesting news for a slow Saturday night.

Per this video at NFL.com, the weather could be a factor on Sunday when the Redskins square off against the Lions.

At Ford Field.

“Winds will be gusting upwards of 20 miles per hour,” says the Accuweather.com weather lady. “That could play a big role in the kicking game at Ford Field.”

Yes, it could. If they remove the roof from the place between now and game time.

We realize that everyone makes mistakes. But more than one or two people surely had their fingerprints on this video. It’s amazing that it didn’t occur to at least one of them that Ford Field is a domed stadium.

May the wind in the dome come from the Redskins blowing away the Lions.

Heyer should do a decent job. I am more worried about Mike Green starting for Horton.

Thats what they just said. These guys are needed for the big steelers game much more than this matchup, if they can not go. That was a big list of inactive's.

Heyer should be fine. We'll see what Green can do today. He's played for Blache before.

Yeah well I'm not happy about this. Samuels is hugely important, especially to the running game, and with Horton and Springs out and Smoot gimpy, that's a big % of our secondary. We better be real careful today.

CP isn't licking his chops nearly as much with Samuels out, trust me.

Re: Redskins vs. Lions Gameday thread

I really hope these players are inactive because they absolutely cannot play and not just because we're resting them for the Steelers game. We're getting to the point of the season were every game counts regardless of if we're playing the hapless Lions or the 5-1 Steelers. I just hope whoever is making these decisons to deactivate these players isn't underestimating the Lions.

I was kinda thinking the same thing. I didn't know Samuels and Horton were even a question mark this week. Both of their injuries occurred against St. Louis, and they both played last week.

Re: Redskins vs. Lions Gameday thread

Tackle Chris Samuels was a late scratch with inflammation in the cartilage in his right knee. He participated in warm-ups but was unable to go. Tackle Stephon Heyer is starting in his place.

Safety Chris Horton (ankle) is also out. Mike Green, who has been with the team just a few weeks, is starting in his place. Running back Ladell Betts (knee), corner Shawn Springs (calf), Cornelius Griffin (shoulder) are also out.

QB Colt Brennan, WR Malcolm Kelly, OL Chad Rinehart are healthy scratches.
