Re: Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

With fans like some of you who needs Dallas fans to bash the team. It also seem to come from alot of people with low post count. Heck, I stopped to have a few beers on the way home and while talking foot ball to a few friends Dallas & Philly fan they talked better about the skins then some people posting here.

I definitely agree. I think it might be youth also. Some of us that are a little older remember the golden years so we have a lot more respect for our team. Because we have enjoyed the spoils of victory and some of these younger posters haven't seen anything to make them cheer.

Understandable. But if you are going to be a Skins fan be a die hard skins fan.

I can at least see that happening. Some of these blowout predictions are just outrageous.

I can at least see this taking place this week. Kelly has just as many yards as Moss so far.

That'd also be a motivating factor with the team if they saw some success with their 2nd year player. That should probably be an objective this Sunday since we are playing a weak team...it'd give the team some momentum.

Bringing Alridge back definitely tells me something about Portis' ankles. Bone spurs suck. It's think he'll be able to make a full recovery from it, but I think this may be the point where we start to see some decline from him. He's played in 34 straight games, and he's taken a pounding since becoming a Redskin. He's an old 28 and has a ton of career carries. Maybe Mason and Alridge represent a youth movement that culminates with the Skins maybe drafting Portis' replacement next year.

I understand my contensions could be premature, but we all know Portis hasn't been very explosive for a while. And we all know how RBs fall off so fast these days. Three guys who were all in their prime in the previous few seasons are struggling right now- LT, Westbrook, CP. It's early in the season, and none of them have really bad injuries, but it makes me wonder for sure.

Prediction: Boring game to watch and more excuses why we didn't play well. Tight game, but Skins win 17-16.

Re: Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

I think this game is going to look more like we did at the beginning of last year. I HEAVY dose of running, wearing them down then eating big chunks of yards and clock in the 4th quarter. Zorn isn't going to want to turn the ball over throwing against the Lions, especially since Reinhart is playing guard. He wont want to put him in a ton of pass blocking schemes since its easier to learn the running plays. My opinion, we will see a ton of Portis left, right, middle(if he plays) and Betts. I like to see what they will do with Aldridge. He has the same skill set as Sproles in San Diego.

The negative is a breeding ground for some.

Re: Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

I don't think it will be a blowout, but I do think the Skins will win. I think we have a better chance of blowing out the Panthers, Chiefs or Broncos later in the season. The Lions just aren't as bad as they were last year but until they put two halves together people won't realize that. If we get the team that played the first half last week for a whole game, it will likely be another 9-7 victory.

Look at this stuff:

The Lions should load up against the run, trying to make the Redskins one dimensional and force them to the air, where they haven't been able to make big plays for...years.

Anthony Aldridge, a speed burner who can go all the way or cough up the rock at any time.

Jason Campbell played well last week, but the only receiver who was open and not dropping the ball was TE Chris Cooley.

The Redskins don't have the skill or discipline to work their way down the field patiently for touchdowns so taking away the big play works.

Malcolm Kelly or Devin Thomas must do what they have never done -- play like a real starting wide receiver. If one can do that, this game should be a blowout. If, as usual, they fail to show up and do much, the game should be relatively close.

The Redskins are ripe for a mauling, but the Lions are not the team to do it. They don't have the talent or experience.


Whew! I canít imagine how rough things could get if the Redskins were to lose to Detroit.
Sounds spot on to me... especially about Devin Thomas. He needs to wake the hell up. So far he's been a complete dud.

Redskins finally win by 35 points against a crappy Lions team.

If the Redskins lose I'll be suffering the worst bout of Tourette's combined with Asperger's syndrome ever witnessed.

Re: Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

Prediction.

Skins win 2-0.

Cmon folks...any prediction of any blowout is crazy.
Lets see...how many points can the Skins under Zorn score...especially over the last half season after teams have film on him....uh....the teens....as simple as that.
The Lions suck..so...maybe low 20s....I'd be shocked if it was any more.
Regarding the Lions...they suck...so...uh....like 10 or so...oh yeah...throw in the fact that we never win by more than a touchdown....we need to tighten that up a bit...maybe Skins win 20-13...that sounds about right for a Zorn victory over a crappy team.

The Skins are one of the most predicable teams in the NFL.
I hope you guys slam the crap outta me if the Skins score 30+ points...I'd gladly take the beating.

As someone who probably represents the youth. I find it offensive that you would question my fan hood and my knowledge on the team. I understand the situation of our current team. And I'm very aware of the prior success of this franchise.
