That was a good read. Thanks for that CRed.

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.
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.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

No matter how good and different Chip Kelly's offense is, the thing that is known on the eagles is Vick. He will have the same strengths and weaknesses he has had since going to the eagles. He has become the player that he will be. And to play into this pun- he has become an old dog. That means no matter how much Chip Kelly's offense helps him- he will still perform like Mike Vick. And how he does so goes the eagles. You focus to bring out his weaknesses and contain and take away his strengths- the Redskins will dominate the game. The thing to worry about though is- Vick has always seemed to play well against the skins. The thing to feel good about is - these redskins seem to be a strong, confident team that Vick has yet to face.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Not buying Kelly. At all.
I did at first b/c he seemed to be saying the right things. While paying lip service to the fact that the NFL is a different game, however, he still makes comments like "Time of possesion is just folks standing around". His "Blur" worked in colleges b/c he was dealing with amateurs. Nothing in the scheme is new - its the same routes and plays run by traditional offenses - just done at a faster pace. In fact, just as the faster paces forces defenses to simplify their schemes, it does the same for the offense. It's entire concept is "Go fast, so D must show it's hand pre-snap then call the right play that attacks the weakness of the D shown." A defense, however, that can disguise its coverage pre-snap and limit its use of situational personnel (and, thus, not show its hand) will stymie the offense.

Not buying the Eagles. At all.
This team went 4-12 and it was just b/c of injuries along the OLine. They have replaced their secondary entirely. Vick. Sucks. (see my earlier post). They have a dangerous RB & a dangerous but limited WR (who has NO ONE opposite him to stop teams from doubling him all day long) - that's it. There ain't no more. Teams will run through their defense all day. When they go to a 4WR offense, opposing teams will point and laugh.
It is laughable to hear folks talk this sucky a** team up.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

One player that I would want to start that probably won't against the Eagles is Amerson in place of Wilson. Wilson seems to always be playing from behind. Amerson would make some rookie mistakes but I think would still bring solid play and the possibility of making a big play.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Meanwhile, the Skins are not the team they were two or three years ago. There is a noticeable talent increase on both offense and defense from the times when "Vick played well against us" or Jackson was running through our defense at will. Additionally, the change in the team's intangibles has been noted by almost all analysts who actually follow the team.

The Eagles and Skins are two teams moving in opposite directions. For both teams, last year was merely the prelude. The bright lights of Monday Night Football are going to burn off the chaff, expose the truth and show everyone the path these teams are travelling.

Hallelujah my football brothers, on Monday, you shall see victory! On that day, football dominance will stand in your midst and you will sing its praises: "A new day is come. A new sun is risen. The glory of the past will once more be recalled and will light the way for the new future! Woe be unto those that challenge our team for they will be as dust before the storm."

... and just to be sure, I am sacrificing a goat.

There's too much time between now and the playoffs to be saying we're contenders already. But if we head into the playoffs completely healthy, and have a few balls bounce our way, playing in the Super Bowl is very possible. But I think you and JoeR are getting excited too early.

We are going to kick ass all year long. Therefore it is perfectly acceptable to be excited in week one.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

I am not excited. I am incredibly calm. Hand-wringing naysayers can tear at their garments, gnash their teeth and cover their heads in ash as they moan their doubts.

I believe, my brother, and I am at peace with the joy faith brings. Join me.

Can I get an amen?!

No, but in all seriousness, I agree. I can't help but be excited. I too believe we're contenders.

Should the very worst happen and our franchise QB get a season ending injury on MNF, we can still be a playoff team.

No, I did NOT just say Jehovah. Put the rocks down.
