money has obviously come in on the Skins and that's why it's so low. it opened at 10.

That is a great strategy. Pound the ball, eat the clock up. Reduce the amount of time Brees is on the field and can make big plays.

Yeah reduce the amount of time Brees is on the field or our secondary, either way you want to look at it.

Re: Skins vs Saints predictions

I'm really just hoping for a trap game. Maybe we can catch the Saints off gaurd and overconfident.

Re: Skins vs Saints predictions

Looking at how our starters looked in preseason against the pass it doesnt look good.Jay Cutler went thru us like a hot knife thru butter,Andrew Luck pretty much did the same.If we somehow can control the clock with a good running game and keep the ball out of Bree's hands we'll have a shot.If they get a 10 point lead where they can tee off on RG3 were toast.Remeber this is RG3's first game,he looked good in preseason but im sure he was facing vanilla defenses also.
If we dont turn the ball over and can get some pressure on Bree's maybe we have a shot.Time of possesion dont mean shit against NO,so even if we controll the clock with a good running game it will help,but in the end might not matter

^ i feel like thats an unlikely scenario, given they more than likely feel the need to step up and prove something... I'm hoping more for an over-zealous saints team to focused on being great without Peyton at the helm ... making mistakes playing like a younger more in experienced team then they are trying to over compensate for lack of their coach and pride getting in their way of focus and performance... Or, we'll just go out and play prolifically and it will be a huge momentum builder and win for us.

Re: Skins vs Saints predictions

I'm expecting a huge game from Alfred Morris against that no good Saints run defense. It should open up the play action pass and RG3 to go long to Garcon, Morgan, or Hankerson deep.

Yeah valid way to look at it for either. Plus Haslett used to coach on the Saints, don't you think that's some extra motivation to win right there? Dial up some heat?! Pile it on. Rough 'em up! But don't say that. For money. Or gift certificates to Bath & Body Works.

Re: Skins vs Saints predictions

Wasn't sure where to put this but thought it was an interesting piece of stat-age. From Adam Schefter's 10 Spot on ESPN.COM.

"The Eagles' opponents combined for 625 sacks last season, which is the fifth-most by any group of combined opponents for a team in 2012, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. It looks as though Griffin, Weeden, Roethlisberger and Flacco also will be on the run quite a bit more than other quarterbacks. The Redskins' opponents this season combined for 649 sacks last season, Browns opponents had 636, Steelers opponents registered 635 and Ravens opponents rang up 630."

So according to this stat, the teams we are playing this year have the #1 combined total number of sacks from last year in the NFL. Don't like hearing Griffin having to play against those odds.

Believe it or not I think Morris will start because he's been proving that he can handle the physical workload. If he doesn't start I think he plays a majority of the plays at the rb position. And I've liked him since reading his draft scouting reports and seeing some of his clips from college. His style complements RGIII and seems to get at least a couple of extra yards each carry. 2 extra yards are significant on 3rd downs.
