Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

Quote:
Who: Washington Redskins @ Detroit Lions
What: Game 3 of the 2009 regular season
When: Sunday, September 27 at 1 PM ET
Where: Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan

When Detroit Has the Ball

The Lions were able to run for over 120 yards last week against a stout Vikings defense, so establishing a ground game to control the clock and protect their rookie QB will be a top priority for Detroit. TB Kevin Smith is a tough runner between the tackles who can get yards after the cutback so the Redskins should see a steady dose of that all day. The Redskins need to limit the Lions on first down, forcing Detroit to turn to Matt Stafford in obvious passing situations. That's when the Redskins will have a chance for sacks and turnovers. DT Albert Haynesworth and DT Cornelius Griffin are playing well so far this season and running between the tackles on the Redskins won't be easy.
Read it all.

Re: Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

I added this to the Alridge thread but some probably don't care to go there anymore so I'll add it here. CP is questionable for Sun. I presume he will play but I bet his roll will be limited. ...

I mention Portis being questionable in the preview and suggest that Betts and Aldridge will take the carries if Portis cannot. If Aldridge is active on Sunday, I think the Skins will use him.

They better use Alridge. He's got skills no one else on the team has.

Betts and Portis split carries. Both run to the left about 10 times each. Redskins win 17-10.

Wow. I can't say anything. Your personal feelings toward Alridge are like mine toward Rock. So, I guess I'll just not say a thing.

Bone spurs can be serious. I played basketball with a guy that had to deal with bone spurs. He dealt with it for a year and could barely walk at times. Then he had surgery, but he was never the same player that he was when he first came in before the bone spurs started bothering him. This makes me nervous.

Re: Game Preview: Redskins @ Lions

Spence, your preview was brutal! You seem to be fed up with this team. I hope you havenít gotten caught up in the mob mentality of some of the fans at FedEx Field. I donít know that Iíve ever seen Redskins Nation so ready to get out the pitchforks and torches Ė after a win, at that!

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.

Was there anything wrong in those statements though? I think the statement about working their way down the field is a bit off, but that can be truthful if down the field was replaced with red zone. Other than that, the rest of the statement have validity to them. The first one if the God's honest truth. Many teams that do beat us figure that one out by loading up to stop Portis and forcing the Redskins to throw while doubling up Moss.

Nobody can do both of these things without playing 12 guys on the field.

I thought it was a bit harsh.
