Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Cant wait to see our running game balls deep in the that Philly Defense. Alf, Helu are in for big games. With Philly's problem stopping the run, Kyle is gonna take advantage of it and will have an opportunity to ease RG3 into the game. Id look for short, quick easy throws first half to go along with an aggressive running game. Second half continue to pound the rock maybe go more aggressive downfield with the play action stuff.

Laughed my ass off reading this article. "Michael Vick needs a playbook just to reheat soup." Should be an interesting year in Philly. If it turns out anywhere near the way I'm thinking it will, I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it!

Fine by me. Move them chains. Quick throws and unable to touch RG. Grind on the D. Eat clock. Take our time and drag their suffering out.

Going to be fun to watch the Eagles melt down all year.
Sounds like Williams was the problem? It's a 50/50 guess but not definitive b/c he's a hot head.

This article is hilarious. The comment about Vick needing a playbook to reheat soup was priceless.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

So, when one of your WRs and one of your CBs get into a fist-fight on the sidelines, what's the penalty? Looks like we may find out on Monday.

All joiking aside, I assume that there is none for such a scenario, but could you imagine a better "welcome to the NFL, jerkweed" moment than Kelly's team getting a 15 yard penalty for something not involving its opponent? Would be beautiful.

Michael Vick is smoothing things over. I love it. You know he whispered to Cooper's ear, "Hey, man. I will let this go once for the good of the team. But if I ever hear that sh_t again from you, I will let loose my dogs on your ass. And you know my dogs can handle themselves."

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the team doesn’t yet know if Brandon Meriweather (knee, groin) will be available for Monday night's game against the Eagles.

Yeah with all the talk about RG3 I think the real key is going to be Morris. I could see him going for 150+ and just gashing that D all night long.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Haslett was kind of vague today about Meriweather for Monday night, Shanahan will discuss injured players tomorrow.

As I believe I said a few weeks ago, Meriweather's health has been suspect this summer and I expect Doughty to start Monday night. But I think it will be a game day decision

This is sad. Our QB has a ACL tear and is back before our starting DT and safety. /facepalm


Meriweather is the new Malcolm Kelly

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Sure CB59, anything can happen on any given Sunday, it's why they play the game. Just b/c something may happen doesn't mean it's realistic to think it will happen. The sun may not come up tomorrow, I am not, however, going to lose a moment's sleep over it. None, and I mean NONE, of your nervous nelly, sky-is-falling, end-of-the-world whimperings are anything that cause me one "realistic" pang of worry for Monday Night. Let's review:

1. The Eagles "Big Three"? Well, let's start with the obvious, shall we?
Vick sucks. Oh, he has physical talents - no denying that, and sometimes his play makes you think he doesn't suck, but then, the real Vick shows up and you realize his good plays were the equivalent of lipstick on a pig. He is saying the same things now he said the last two years under Reid ... "I am learning to be a better QB", "I am committed to developing as a disciplined passer", "Coach's system is really good for me." blah blah blah. Leadership? When has he ever elevated the play of others? Not "win by creating points through athleticism" but truly made other players better by building them up.

An example of what I am talking about is comment RGIII made in one of those mic'd up moments during last year's final game - On the final drive, in the huddle for all the team to hear, he makes a comment - "y'all know what were going to do, let's do it", then turns to Morris and - in front of the whole team - says something like "Take us home, win this for us". ... The crowd's chanting Griffin's name, the game is on the line, it's time for the star player to take over and march triumphant, but, instead, Griffin turns to Morris and very publicly says "You are the man, not me. You take the glory." I bet Morris would have run over lava in barefeet and through a brickwall for Griffin at that point. That's real leadership.

Vick simply does not have this. Never has. Never will. When has he ever inspired his teammates to excel. They are in awe of his talents and believe in him because of them, but that ain't leadership. Vick. Sucks.

- DeSean "one trick pony" Jackson? Catch some contested balls over the middle, then maybe you may be a threat without Maclin on the other side. For now, Chris Nield can cover their WR2 and everybody else will watch MeSean.

- McCoy is shifty and a threat. He, however, is not going to win this on his own. He gets two TD's - one off a long run - and that is the extent of the Eagles scoring.

2. RGIII rusty? freaked out b/c he hasn't taken a hit? I call so much bullsh** on that. The man is, generally, driven to excel and has, specifically, been driving himself to excel at this moment to prove himself to the doubters. To even consider RGIII's offseason prep as a reason to doubt his in-game performance in this nationally televised Monday Night Football home opener is to ignore the reality of his historic ability to play his best in big games. Given his drive and history as a player, it is "realistic" to believe that Griffin may be dominant Monday night. On the other hand, for those same reasons, worries about RGIII's ability to over come "eight months without a hit" isn't a realistic concern - it's a namby pamby exercise in hand wringing over a non-issue. If this causes you worry, how the hell do you even get out of bed in the morning?!

3. The Zorn Effect? Let's be clear, the Skins went 6-0 in spite of Zorn not b/c of him. He was handed a cohesive, talented team coming off an inspirational run that had been built by a masterful coach. The momentum from the previous year is what carried them through not anything Zorn did. I could have coached them to 6-0. Had Gibbs stayed, that team was going places. Zorn, however, had no clue how to keep the machine purring when tough times hit and the wheels came off.

Finally, IF this team gets behind, it is not going to panic. It's the same guys who came back from 3-6, who won close nail biters and came from behind along the way. This team is built to bear down not give up. The Eagles, on the other hand, ...

Sure, everything could go wrong and we could lose, maybe. Worrying about that is not "keeping it real", it is unrealistic whining based on regurgitated sound bite analysis and ignores the reality of where these two team were and where they are now. One is realistically on the brink of dominance, the other is realistically on the brink of implosion.

And that's how you keep it real.

Kelly's coming in blind and arrogant. In fact, I only think he came to the NFL because he was afraid of NCAA violations. He's not ready and his offense is not going to work in the NFL.

Besides, the Giants will just slow him down by faking injuries.
Where? I don't remember him ever running an offense anywhere....which makes that hire even more laughable!

You called it weeks/months ago, Doughty to start. I like Doughty a ton, but hope he's the weakest link on our defense if you know what I mean.
