Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

[QUOTE=GMScud;504736]Bradshaw hasn't practiced all week, so he very well might not be able to go. Jacobs practiced today and will most likely play, although he was probable last week and was a late scratch. Tuck was back at practice today as well, and from what I read, he'll play.

On a down note for us, it's not looking very good for either Andre Carter or Fletcher to play. That sucks big time.[/QUOTE]

I don't have a link or anything to give you to back me up Scud, but I'll bet they both play. From what I've heard, Bam-Bam's injury is worse than Carter's but I'd bet he finds a way to play. He knows how important this game is plus he has a streak going. If it's just a matter of playing with pain, he'll be there. There's no way Blades could fill Fletcher's shoes completely, he doesn't have the knowledge or experience, but that is his natural position and he is a 'tackling machine". I would think they would at least start Fletch if possible and if he can't go full speed, bring Blades in. Right now, today, Fletcher said he feels better but not 100%.

yeah losing London for this one would be significant but I'm not so sure about missing AC. It basically forces us to keep Evans @ end all day which will help us stop the rushing attack and throws JT to the other side where he's in all likelihood still more comfortable and probably better than AC. Wouldn't be surprised if Taylor earns his paycheck for the first time this season. Also won't be surprised if we're all talking about Lorenzo's big performance next week. I know Golston is supposed to be the guy w/ the motor but Lorenzo looks like pure adrenaline out there.

Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

Will Eli BE forced to beat us?
Will we withstand their run down your throat/playaction pass scheme??

I think if Eli decides the game than we probably have matched up well up to that point. It seems Week 1 they exploited J.taylor to gain early momentum and had us on our heels till we clamped down and held them defensively afterwards. We have the personnel to beat them. I don't think they do anything special other than both Lines on O/D play more physical than opposing teams. Obviously, Jacobs is shaping to be the steam roller that Jerome Bettis was and with good health he will be even more dangerous by career end, but enough of GMen love.

I rather ask :
Will the Skins OLINE pass block?
Will the Skins DLINE collapse the pocket ?

Zorn, in my opinion is the dominant factor why we have faltered in 4 games this year. But I don't understand why our offense has stalled this year. Our run game is on point (as always) but I have expected more passes down field. Kicking field goals is a demoralizing play when ultimately scoring is hard to come by. They have to change this dismal,(yes dismal) air attack. Granted, I love the WR/TE screen but where are our WR's? They seem to be taken out of the game. I know Jansen can't pass block but the rush on Campbell should never be getting to him.

Our defense is not able to generate a pass rush with the front 4 and get a sack, though we can stop the run and stop the pass but this game is shaping up with a new dimension if we play w/o Fletcher,Carter,and I think MWashington (Is that accurate) that Eli won't need to be forced to beat us, the game is nearly handed to them b/c they will simply run the ball all day.

I like the young rookie in the Giants secondary but other than that I think that is their weakness on defense. It be great to see us spread the field and have them try to match us. That I think will help Campbell and give our Oline 1 on 1 blocking duties.

We have to score some TD's ,settling for FG's this point in the season while in danger of
missing a wild card chance simply will not do. This team seems to have decided late in the seasons to spark rallies and with an emotional year and ring of honor game nothing would make this game as special as a definitive win and a new found pride in the way we execute our offense.

As the game looms and more national talk on major sport channels my heart sinks even more thinking of Sean. It would add terrible insult to play poorly so I just hope they make the Taylor family proud and all the Skins fans too.

Peace to all Warpathers.

Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

I hope they will be forced to pass. It would be nice if we could actually put some pressure on Eli though. Our front four has put a lot of pressure on our d-backs all year. Blache believes the d-backs need to cover long enough to give the line time to get pressure. It would be nice for the line to return the favor once in awhile.

I think we all can say the DB's have played amazing even in the absences of Springs Im currently in the dark about our overall health and game status if hes ready to play . The D-line Im sad to say haven't played to my expectations mostly b/c I hoped JTaylor would be a sack machine but they can change that Sunday.

Ditto. Again, I'm wondering if Taylor getting back to his speed rush side will give us a lift there. Also Lorenzo seems to get a sack in every game he plays and don't you figure he'll get into the rotation w/ Golston and Griff ailing?

If they do, it'll be a whole different ballgame. If they do it against the Giants it's going to make me wonder what they've been waiting for. As for JT I think it's time to show he can still do it. He's in the best health he's been in since the summer by his own admission. Before he got hurt, he was knocking down a lot of passes. I hope he can do it again this Sunday. Our "D" is something like #3 in the league. With the d-backs and safetys we have, can you imagine how good our "D" would be with a pass rush?

Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

As far as I'm concerned Lorenzo has earned a starting spot. Yeah, I do think JT would play better over the left tackle because that is where he is use to playing.

Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

Oh yeah, w/ Plaxico out for sure we may be able to stick Springs @ FS more this game, which means Landry can hover around the line as a defacto 4th linebacker. Landry can blitz like crazy and just hunt down the ball. If this is the route Blache goes then Hall will def get more than 20-25 snaps in the game, and that's pretty exciting w/ his penchant for INTs.

(somehow I feel more "safe" w/ Springs @ FS than Landry. IMO Springs experience gives him the edge to take better angles and make plays on the ball - Landry even w/ his lightning speed has been a step too late on several receptions this year. hard to know whether it's his hamstring still lingering or just lack of experience to phish out the qb's intent)

Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

Like you said before Goat, if Carter is hurt, why not have Evans play his regular spot and put JT in Carters spot?

I forgot about that but you're totally right. I think going against the left tackle batting the pass was often the best he could do. Really, really hoping he flashes his skills this weekend. He's been so quiet and it makes you wonder whether he's sort of moving on from the game or just finding his groove again.

Re: Will we force Eli to beat us?

Well we've played cobra a lot before and I kinda like the idea of Springs playing FS, Landry at SS, and Horton being in there to do his thing.

I don't know. I hope it's just been a combination of injury, a new system, and playing on the opposite side than he's played for most of his career. But like I said, he's healthy now and it's time to start ballin'.
