Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Yeah good read. Still too many people out there sleeping on this team, or just flat out ignoring us for whatever reason. Another division title and the haters will have no choice but to recognize this team is legit and we're not the same old Skins.

Not an Oak type chance but a ATL or SEA type chance to get to the game. We could be great.
Eh...like I said, if RG3 and all the other key players are healthy, and we have a bit of luck, I'm not going to argue that we have as good a chance as Seattle. But we're just not quite to the level of Atlanta, San Francisco, New England, or Denver yet. Next year, I like our chances a lot better: we'll have signed some good FAs, RG3 and Morris will be improved, Phillip Thomas and Richard Crawford will be healthy, and we'll have another draft to add talent.

Once you get into the playoffs, though, anything can happen. If it were a 7 game series like the NBA, we wouldn't have a chance this year. But NFL playoffs are all about momentum and who-wants-it-the-most. So I'm definitely not counting us out.

Well all of those teams need the same thing we do to make it that far... Health. SEA, SF, ATL, and GB aren't going if any of their QBs are hurt. And I am not as sold on SEA as everyone in the media seems to be. What's happens if Wilson has a down year or Lynch gets hurt. Who are they throwing the ball too out there? They have a defense but it isn't impenetrable.

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
