Re: Skins vs. Giants predictions

Just for the mere fact that all the experts on ESPN and pretty much everywhere else predict a Giants win. I'm going with the Skins to pull what most people would say is an upset, not me

The Redskins of 2008 are a better team than the injury plagued 2007 team and the Giants are the same as last year. So why are people all scared? That's why they play the games.

The Giants are have essentially the same personnel as last year, however they are not nearly the same team. Their offensive line seems to get better every game, they are still rushing the passer with ferocity despite no Strahan OR Umenyiora, their running game is better, Eli is more efficient, and they are two games ahead of where they were at this point in 2007. They didn't really gel as a team until the final 4 regular season games/playoffs last year.

This year, aside from the Cleveland speed bump, they are a machine. And they've scored 30+ in 4 straight games, and only less than 21 twice all year.

Yeah, we're better than we were last year, but we're still just as injury plagued.

This is such an important game. I hope we can overcome the odds. Hey, at least it's not a night game!

Re: Skins vs. Giants predictions

Plaxico Burress has officially been ruled out for the game.

It just got easier to stack the box against the run, folks....

Burress to miss Giants game against Washington - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

(Ahmad Bradshaw hasn't practiced all week either. That's significant...)

Cool Re: Skins vs. Giants predictions

I was feeling depressed this week because of the thought of having to play the 10-1 giants. But after a little bit of number crunching, i am feeling much better.

The 'skins have played the top 3 offenses in terms of points scored, (saints, giants, cardinals). These 3 teams combined have scored 29 points a game. But the average allowed by the 'skins to these 3 teams is a mere 19 points per game. not bad, not bad. of course stats can be skewed to make a person feel better, but i'm going to reno and bet on the 'skins to win.

if that happens I would say the off line is the hero,I'd much rather see Portis with 50 yrds and Campbell throw for 400 yrds,when was the last time a redskin qb won the game for us when the run game wasnt working?JC has stepped up his game this yr,but he needs to step it up another notch,he needs to take over a game and win it on his own

For our sake i hope not because for my Colt Brennan theory to manifest it will need Jason to get injured this week or next..I really regret saying that back in pre-season. But we live and die by the running game.

Re: Skins vs. Giants predictions

Brandon Jacobs is also questionable but don't forget Derrick Ward carved us last year

Re: Skins vs. Giants predictions

The giants come out and score 14 in the first half to quite the crowd, Portis gives an emotional half-time pep talk to fire the boys up and we score 21 points (in honor of ST) to win the game in a traditional NFC East battle.

REDSKINS - 21
giants - 20

HTTR and #21!

Firstdown, the game hasn't even happened yet, and you are already 1/3 right in your prediction. Good work!
