Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Can the Chip Kelly's offense really run and function as quick as Denver's? Cris collinsworth said the play can't even come thru over the headset to the QB until the play is whistled ready to play by the ref.
I can understand a 2min drill but few teams can run a manning up tempo game and I don't see Vick doing it in hostile FedEx making the appropriate blitz pickups with our pass rush, and being effective. Nah I'm not buying it anymore.

No rule against the O-coordinator calling 2 plays once the headset is activated.
If they have the matchups on the field that they want, it is possible.

I think he will be up to speed and be completely healthy physically, but I would be shocked if he came back completely the same right away in all the aspects of football. Two of the best quarterbacks/competitors ever in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning needed time to feel completely comfortable after their respected surgeries. Even RG3 struggled some the first time he came back from a knee surgery at Baylor after he won Big 12 freshmen of the year and everyone that watched college football thought there was something special about him.

I'm not saying its impossible that RG3 comes back especially since he has gone through a similar situation before, but I am not expecting it and would still be pleasantly surprised by it.

That is true. Perhaps the fans just make it too difficult to hear.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Forget defensive fatigue, defensive looks, and all of that. It all hinges on how the redskins front seven play. The key players will be Cofield, Orakpo, and Kerrigan. Cofield will need to consistently collapse the pocket. Orakpo will need to have a lot of discipline to contain Vick and McCoy and be able to make some tackles against the run. Kerrigan will need to make the plays we know he can make in the running and passing game. It will all be about spacing and not giving the eagles any.

One caveat, aside from Brady, none of those QBs ever had anywhere near the talent, natural athleticism, work ethic, intelligence or overall game that Griffin does.

No. Vick cannot handle reading defenses and adjustments at the line like Manning. In fact, probably no one can, but Vick's intelligence level compared to Mannings is laughable.

If Kelly had Manning, look out. I think it will be a mess with Vick running it. Then soon, Foles...and Barkley.

Interesting. Carson Palmer tore his ACL, MCL, and dislocated a kneecap against the Steelers in the playoffs. Then, the next preseaason, he actually played in two games. That season he threw for 4,035 yards and the second most TD passes in his career, 28. Now, that's a quick recovery. Hopefully, RG3 can have similar success.

Here's a balanced read. I like the style, hope ESPN does it frequently since they have a blogger for each team now.

Here's my prediction for the eagles offense- the eagles offense will be the most fast-paced offense... to 3 and out.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Some guys let Vick, McCoy and Jackson worry them. Especially with Chip Kelly the new offensive guru pulling the strings.

Just don't forget that we have Griffin, Morris, and Garcon (that I think are better offensively) and the Shanahans... and a load of other guys on defense that clearly are better than the guys the Eagles will be fielding.

The Eagle should be scared.

Here's why I think Washington will score a ton of points against the Eagles.

Reason 1: if their offense is successful, their defense will only get a few minutes of rest. Reason 2: If their offense fails, their defense will only get a few minutes of rest. Reason 3: The way we pound the ball at defenses, they will get tired anyway.

By the 4th quarter, the Eagles defense is going to be so exhausted, we'll be running for a first down every other time we hand it off.

That was a good read. Thanks for that CRed.

In one of the interviews I remember most from when Shanahan first became coach of the Skins he was talking about his running philosophy, and why he liked the stretch plays. It was simplistic, but really opened my eyes to how he viewed the game. Basically, he said, every stretch play forces the whole defensive line to run the width of the field (assuming you go both left and right with a regular frequency. So even if at the beginning of the 1st quarter the defense is hitting the line quick and hard, by the end of the 3rd/beginning of the 4th quarter, those big dudes are going to have run far more than your offensive line, who won't have to chase across the whole field.

I agree, by the 4th quarter the Eagles D will be pretty exhausted.
