I expect Coach Haz to dial up those exotic blitzes on Russell Wilson.

Offensively, the Redskins 5th ranked offense will be interesting to watching against the Seahawks 4th ranked defense. Both Alfred Morris and RG3 running the football may help set up the play action pass.
I am completely fine being the underdog. I think this game will be up to the defense to win or lose. I expect the Seahawks D will stack the LOS and control our run game. The WRs need to be on point for this game and bring their A-game.

The oddsmakers also has us as a 6 win team this year.

4) We haven't blown as many coverages and so are not giving up 80 yard plays
5) We have significantly cleaned up our act in terms of penalties
This is key. Our receivers are making plays. Straight ballin at times if you ask me. Ike Hilliard has done a great job with this corps throughout the turnaround. The routes are run with confidence- and to tell you the truth- I actually attribute that to RG3 scrambling a bit less.

I'm basing this off intuition and intuition alone- but I'd like to look at the amount of time RG3 has the ball vs. earlier in the year. I feel like the timing of the offense is more in step, and that helps the receivers run efficient routes.

That's also why these Seattle corners scare me. They're big and scary. They will bump some of our smaller receivers and knock them off their routes. We will really need them to step up and get physical. They will need to maintain their routes and not let them get in their heads. - and use our skill- SPEED- to beat them.

They have two good corners. We have more receivers that have been playing at a high level. Garcon, Moss, Hankerson, Morgan, Robinson. Paulson has really stepped up and improved his receiving skills since Fred Davis went out. If they do shut down our run game and two two corners, I think we can work 3 and 4 wide receiver sets and find holes in their zone coverage (I am assuming they will still play a zone).

I think that's why Detroit who was only a 4 win team beat Seattle. They are obviously a passing team and although Calvin Johnson was taken away, the rest of the receivers stepped up and had big days. RGIII has shown he can make all the throws so I think this is something we can cope with, should they be successful at slowing our run game (which I think is unlikely) and taking Garcon and our #2 out with Browner and Sherman.

Re: Seahawks Redskins Rookie Showdown

Any Richard Crawford fans out there? I think he's got really good coverage skills from what i've seen. Gave up a TD and a 2 last week, but was right there on both, just great throws. Also had a pick. He was a 7th rounder, looks like a keeper to me.

No. On Monday they set the line where they think they will receive even action. Part of their evaluations may include team analysis but mostly it is based on superficial stuff that they know most bettors will use in their analysis plus spread history. So the line starts where they think the bettors will run action...or who bettors think is the better team. Not who they think is actually better.

Re: Seahawks Redskins Rookie Showdown

Anyone else catch the breakdown on Sportscenter talking about the Seahawks corners being the 24th ranked secondary against playaction passing? Since that's the entire foundation of our offense, I like the odds of some big passing plays like we say vs Dallas on Thanksgiving. On defense I'm not scared of their wide recievers, but I also felt that way before Amendola made our secondary look like HS players a couple months ago so hopefully over confidence is not something we see the team expirience. Containing the Beast and Wilson in the pocket are the two keys on defense as is continuing to force turnovers to give our offense the short field.

I definitely think we can pull this game out. I'd even go so far 2 say if we get past this game I see no reason we don't get to the NFCC game.

The way Dallas ran against us makes me nervous for what Skittles could do to us. Wilsons accuracy could be tough as well. We've been bailed out by some bad qb's not hitting their target this year.

Just as many ? marks from our side for them as well though.

I hope Griffins play this week resembles the first few weeks. Anyways lets get a win! HTTR

Our defense has been playing dramatically better than it was when we made Amendola look like a star.

Crawford is just a rookie. He missed a lot of games this season because he was so low on the depth chart. I like the fact that he is returning punts. I wish he were returning kickoffs too. As far as his coverage skills, he'll improve as his career goes on. As a 7th rounder, he's showing that he is valuable.

We lost two of our front seven in the game. Any time you have back-ups it takes awhile to make adjustments. Haslett making quality game plans is one reason the D has improved but the continuity of the players every week is also significant. They know each others instincts and can make game time adjustments a lot more efficiently than earlier in the season.
