Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

So much confidence we shall see.

I pray it is a Skins blow out but my mind and cynical feelings towards this team have me believing we lose.

Time to get over that losing feeling.

We're 11-1 over the last 12 games counting playoffs and preseason. Hop on board son.

No way you give Shanahan this much time to prepare for a game and they lose to a rookie HC with Vick at QB. C'mon now.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

I think I'm a bit more nervous than most, but I'm pretty confident. I could see Philadelphia getting off to a quick start. Watching them in preseason a little bit, I did like their tempo, and think that really could pose big problems if they can get rolling...

That said, the talent differential is just too much for me. Unless we turn the ball over a ton or RG3 is slow out of the gate, I still see a solid win. 27-20 (late Eagles TD to make it closer).

Bob will be fine this year.

Aside from the first troll post prediction in this thread, I agree with everyone...the Eagles have no chance. Their D has looked atrocious this preseason and they're trying to convert to a new system with mediocre players. The offensive line has their own wing in the local hospital. They have ONE WR who isn't one they can count on for 16 games.

On the other sideline, our offense is improved with injured players like Davis, Helu and hopefully having Garcon all year. Our defense is worlds better in terms of depth (especially at LB) and at least a competent secondary now being fielded. We had a horrible defense last season and still crushed this team.

I'm calling 42-16.

Even the Philly media knows their D is in trouble:

Both starting cornerbacks and one of the starting safeties are new. Two of the outside linebackers used to be defensive ends and another is in his first year here. Both nose tackles and a couple defensive ends? New here. Two backup inside linebackers? New here as well.

When the Eagles cut the roster from 75 to 53 over the past couple days, it continued the overhaul of the defense that began soon after Chip Kelly took over for Andy Reid.

Gone from last year’s moribund unit are eight players that started at least one game and 17 guys who got on the field on the defensive side of the ball. Added to this year’s defense are 12 new names, including five projected starters.

The Eagles are certainly different on defense. But are they better?

The secondary is stocked with players who were unwanted with their previous team and a holdover who’s been benched the last two years.

The linebacker position includes two converted defensive ends who’ve never played in a 3-4, a big-money free agent coming off a disappointing season, two unheralded newcomers and Casey Matthews, of all people.

Up front is a nose tackle coming off an ineffective preseason, a defensive end who’s never started an NFL game and a bunch of promising but untested young linemen.

There’s one Pro Bowl guy on the defense, and that’s Trent Cole, and he’s four years removed from his last Pro Bowl. And it came at a different position four defensive coordinators ago.


The first five quarterbacks the Eagles face this year are Robert Griffin III, Philip Rivers, Alex Smith, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning.

Other than all that, the Eagles’ defense is ready to go.

It is pretty funny that they cut Tapp because they didnt think he could transition to a 3-4 OLB from a 4-3 DE. Only to have us pick him and make that same transition and find out that he can be pretty good at it.

44-17, Redskins. RG3 completes 18 of 24 passes for 284 yards and 2 touchdowns. He runs for 45 yards and another TD. Fred Davis hauls in 8 of RG3's passes for 97 yards and a TD. Alfred Morris has 148 yards rushing with a TD of his own. Brian Orakpo picks off a pass and returns it 20+ yards for a TD. Kai Forbath hits 3 of 3 field goals with a long of 50. Game over.

I think it'll be closer than some.think, skins will.win it in the 4th but I'm.going with 28-20

Griffin has 2 td passes and 250 yards passing.

Morris has 2 rushing tds and 100 yards rushing.

I think Philadelphia comes out with a opening drive td

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Washington 38
Philadelphia 20

I think the Eagles score on their first two possessions and everyone gets excited and then we drop the clamps on them and their offense resembles what it did last year. They have two weapons, Jackson and McCoy. Make them one dimensional and it's a wrap.

Griffin shows a mix of greatness and rust, about 250, 2 TD with an INT. Morris runs for about 140, 2 TD and we get a defensive TD.. Nice way to start the season and put the offseason stink behind us.

The Skins O sputters a bit at first while RG3 gets up to game speed but it all works out in the end.
