This is why I don't think Seattle is going to the super bowl (or playoffs this year) is because Wilson, as good of a QB he is, has no WRs to throw to. Its him and Marshawn, but like you said, one of those guys gets hurt (and I have a feeling one of them will this year) that team becomes one dimensional. And as you've said, that defense is good but is very beatable. I would just run the ball on them on first and second down to wear them out, then mix it up with play action to start annoying and confusing the defense. As great as that secondary is, Browner is just big and can be beaten (and badly at times) by quicker WR's, Chancellor is huge as well and great in run support but is sketchy in coverage (both our TD's were scored on him in last years play off game). And I don't know if people saw, but Sherman didn't look that great this past preseason when I saw him play. He was getting man handled by Demarius Thomas when they played the broncos. He was also getting picked on by Ryan and Roddy White in last years playoff game.

Your point on health is a good one. But our QB is more likely to get injured.

And I'm not sold on Seattle, either. Plain and simple, Russell Wilson is overrated. He's good, but he is nowhere near as talented athletically as our own QB. And with Harvin injured, they have no go-to WRs. Marshawn Lynch is pretty good, but one offensive weapon isn't going to get you very far. Their defense is really good, but RG3 showed that we could beat it last year. And we did almost beat Atlanta in the regular season. If we get in the playoffs, anything could happen, I suppose. Unless we play Seattle; then we might as well chalk up a win the week before.

I wouldn't say he's overrated. I'd just say he isn't a better football player as Robert. The only thing he's better at, so far, is health. Everything else, Robert is better at and has a much higher ceiling than Russell does.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

If Wilson gets a serious injury, the SeaHags are in trouble. That offense is a lot less fearsome when run by Tarvaris Jackson. Defenses will just load up the box and cancel Beastmode.

Couple of things:
A poster on cowboyszone (where I saw this article) summed it up well: what is there to respect about Vick?

Also I hope our team keeps a level head because that team is like the rams last year undisciplined and looking for fights. Let them get the penalties.

That said I wouldn't be upset if some of our receivers verbally pushed Williams buttons. Sounds like he is a good for one or two 15 yarders if egged on properly.

Mixed feelings on this one. Given RG3s knee and the movie this came from. But with 2 days left I get the tie in

Injures are a real bitch sometimes. Saying he's got no heart is a pretty weak assumption.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

I'm so nervous about tomorrow. Of course there is Roberts knee, but I'm much less concerned about that having seen the progress he has made and how good he is looking. What has me nervous is that I have never had higher expectations for this team.

I came of age in the Norv Turner era, and that 99 team was the first time I really followed every little thing about the Redskins, and since then I have seen nothing but one disappointment after another. Oh, and then THE legendary coach comes out of "retirement" to save our sorry franchise, and though there were good moments, the way Gibbs 2.0 fizzled out at the end has left such a bitter taste. I liked bringing Shanahan in from day one, but over the years my optimism for the skins had died. RG3, well I have never been more impressed with a young QB's talent, character, and/or personality, but going into last season my expectations were reserved (THEN I SAW WHAT HE COULD DO), and I was pleasantly surprised by a division championship.

Now, to me, I believe this is the best Redskins team I have seen, but have been burnt so many times that I am waiting for the other foot to drop. Anyone else feel this way? Or can someone with more years of Redskins fandome please tell me its ok to believe in them this time, because they really ARE a talented, young, deep team that is just starting to reach maturity. I know the rug can be pulled out from under us (Miss you 21), but I just need to hear that this is what a rising star looks like.

Redskins 41 Eagles 17. Their second TD comes in garbage time. 1-0, off to Green Bay.
