Rex and smooth sailing aren't words that go together all that often but we can hope! I think no Trent Cole helps us out as Rex is far better at not making mistakes when he has a clean pocket. As for Banks something has looked off with him, hope its not the knee as we need him to improve our field position!

I put myself squarely in the anti-Vick camp, but I really don't think this is a big deal. You can't expect any player to respond nicely to a comment that his team is playing dumb, no matter how true it might be.

Re: Redemption Week!!

I can't wait for this game. The anticipation is really killing me. The more I think about it the more I am concerned this will be a Skins let down. Especially with the way everyone is lining up against Philly. I hope we destroy them and put this crap to rest. If we do, it shows we are a mentally strong group.

Re: Redemption Week!!

I, of course, want us to win. My bigger concern with a loss wouldn't be the loss itself but the fear that it starts a downward spiral

HTTR!
Spot on. If KS opens with 5 PA passes again....it could be a long day. We must committ to the run, when Philly puts 8 in the box to stop it, PA up top or use TE mismatches. Defensively, pressure Vick, he will make mistakes. Not Cover 0 pressure, Zone Blitz, vary coverages, make Vick read and throw quickly. Keep pressure off the edge from his left as much as possible. We do those things and we'll have a good day.

I'm expecting us to open with several passes.

Re: Redemption Week!!

I agree we should focus on the run, but not taking opportunities in the air would be foolish. Opening with PA passes isn't the worst idea ever either, as Philly may be anxious to get a quick 3 and out stuffing the run. 5 PAs might be a bit much, but PA passes mixed with screens and runs wouldn't be the end of the world.

Re: Redemption Week!!

I picked the iggles to bounce back last week - they didn't. To me that means that they're either due to get it together this week or they are on the verge of total collapse. This really is a must win for them. To make the playoffs after a 1-5 start would be miraculous.

Objectively, I would pick the iggles again. Vick will be amped to play close to home & he usually does well at fedex. Don't want him to get hurt, but if he does our chances shoot up IMO.

Re: Redemption Week!!

I'm heading down to DC for the game and am very excited. Let's hope those Eagles fans are so depressed about the 1-4 start that they are unwilling to comb StubHub for tickets this year. A couple of observations:

1) Return of Darrel Young (currently practicing full-go) will be huge. He blocks those stretch plays well and allows the Skins to run the offense they want, not just the offense they have the healthy personnel for.

2) Hoping Anthony Armstrong returns to the field this week; looks like he is still recovering from the hammy. He will keep those corners honest.

3) Everyone is talking about the potential for a bounce-back game by the Eagles. I agree that it is a legit concern. This is why the Redskins need to draw blood (on both the offensive and defensive end) early. I'm looking for points on the Skins' first possession and a sack on Vick/a stop on the Eagles' first possession.

Re: Redemption Week!!

Bottomline, we all know we need to lean on our running game, but in order to win Rex needs to play well.

If he plays like his last couple games, we lose and we lose bad.

Re: Redemption Week!!

To me it's not so much about how many passes we throw at the beginning. A few passes to get them to respect the pass might not be a bad thing.

But when the game is done, I want to see that we've run the ball at least 35 times.
