I think you're misreading this. We're still gonna bring the heat on Vick, but we can't overpursue and leave open an area that he can escape to. Our pass rush has to be consistent in all areas, up the middle, to the inside and outside of the tackles, otherwise we will leave a hole that he can escape through.

We're still gonna bring pressure, it's obvious after 4 games that when Vick gets pressured and has nowhere to run, he gets forced into making dumb mistakes. Rak was saying if he rushes to the outside of the tackle and leaves the inside open for Vick to escape, that's what'll happen. We need to surround him and leave him no where to escape to, to the point where he'll throw it up or take a sack.

I think it would depend on how we lost. An embarassment like last year would certainly hurt, but a close hard-fought loss where we played well wouldn't (shouldn't) be the end of the world.

I'm much more worried about sending the dirty birds on an upward spiral. This reminds me a lot of the Giants game in 2007. They were 0-2 and ready to collapse. We had a big lead at half and could've finished them off for good. Instead they stopped us on the goalline, won the game, and went on to win the Super Bowl.

Re: Redemption Week!!

I really don't expect to see Vick in the pocket much. I expect him to put his team squarely on his shoulders and get out of the pocket to escape pressure, give his receivers more opportunity to get open and to make plays with his legs. I see the ground game with Vick and McCoy as the biggest threats. I trust the Skins are gameplanning for that too.

On the defense side, I think they sell out to stop the run. No way do they let us get a ground game going (or at least they try). They will force Rex to beat them hoping he is less than stellar and makes some mistakes that give them good field position and more possessions. Rex must bring his A game and play mistake free football for us to win this game.

Re: Redemption Week!!

So that means the Skins game was chosen to be broadcast over AFN?

Yes that is correct. We get AFN Europe here until they shut it off next month.

Doubt the defensive gameplan will be conservative...not really Haslett's thing. Can't say I feel that way about the offense. Really hope Kyle calls a great game. It's time we start to see some points on the board!!!

We're gonna need to this week. IMO we're gonna need to put up at least 24 to beat this team.

Re: Redemption Week!!

The Redskins are a different and a better team than last year all around, they improved in every position except QB. The Eagles also improved and got weak in other areas, overall I would say the Redskins did a better job in drafting and FA signings, this year's Redskins are a totally different team and it will win on Sunday.

Leave it to Pigeons fans to create a poorly worded sign. I think all Pigeons fans dropped out of school in the third grade.

We should have won the dallas game but we didnt step up and do it,we should win this game but ive lost the faith,weve been in this position so many times over the past few yrs and we blow it everytime.I dont think we would have won the game last yr if we wouldnt have knocked vick out of it and if he plays a full game this week my gut feeling is we lose again
Ok go ahead and blast away at me and tell me im not a true fan
Remember, Luck is a product of design. They have been losing games they should have won, because they are not prepared for those lucky plays. A good team takes that luck and turns it into points, because they are prepared and focused. I don't know if you've been paying attention, but it sounds to me like the eagles have quit in the fourth quarter several games in a row now. We are not the same team as years past. It's like pretending you have the same wife, after she gets breast implants. Sure she has a similar personality, but her new look gives her a certain swagger. We don't quit, and we don't give away games anymore. That much is obvious.
