Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

If I'm correct running the hurry up O reduces their down the field attack. To me that has been their biggest weapon over the past few years.

COACH.............. TEAM................ W......L
John Harbaugh... Baltimore ..........5........0
Jim Harbaugh..... San Francisco......2......0
Greg Schiano...... Tampa Bay.........1......0
Mike Shanahan... Washington.......15.....4


I'd say Shanahan is pretty good at opening day games.

I don't see the Eagles defense as particularly better than any of the starting defenses in preseason, and putting Griffin, Morris and Garcon on the field together is going to be to much for the Eagles. If anything, I worry we get a big lead early, and then let off the gas, and the Eagles make a comeback.
I agree about the offense,my main concern is I dont think the defense was tested by those teams

It sucks waiting to be one of the last games on week one. Sigh.

Yup. That's why I dislike our being on MNF. It's bad any time but especially the first week.

Well every team has part of that offense in their playbook. They just don't run it all the time.

I think as far as Kelly is concerned, right now he has a QB that turns the ball over too much and can't stay healthy. I think some weeks it will work and others where they won't get first downs and throw their defense back on the field. This type of offense isn't anything the NFL hasn't seen...Buffalo and the Benglas ran it back in the 80's early 90's. Those offenses just didn't have all the misdirection and window dressing.

The defense practices daily against one of the best offenses in the league.

How much more testing do they need?

Since the bye week last year, and through the pre-season, the defense really stepped up. My biggest concern is Fletcher getting hurt, because he truly commands the defense on the field, and Merriweather going against the Eagles because the number of snaps they will take will be hard on his recovery. Otherwise, every level of the defense is capable of stopping the threat that the Eagles can bring. Of course they will get a couple big scrambles, and runs by McCoy, and even probably a long one to Jackson, but a consistent offense that matches our points, I don't see it.

I like the odd games at the begining of the season because its still summer and plenty of summer stuff to do. I'm playing golf Sunday which I would not do if the skins had a game.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Once the first football is kicked off on Thursday I'll be entering a Twilight Zone of NFL lunacy. Nothing else matters.

I think it may be worse for me given that when I first got interested in football I was limited to a tiny column of coverage in a British newspaper every week. Never thought I'd live here or go to an actual game. I am a monster.

I have a TV in my garage and on my back porch. I can catch the games on Sunday and still get a few things done around the house. I have to fight the urg to watch college ball because that would kill my weekends. Now if the skins are on the only things that I'll do is grill and drink beer.

Monday night I'll be dedicating my game to 8 year old Tara Sankner battling inoperable astrocytoma. For each touchdown I score I'll be donating $2,500 to her family to help cover the costs of treatment and growing medical bills. Join me in raising awareness of childhood cancer by using the hashtag #TD4Tara
