Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

Sorry about coming down on Haslett, but I simply don't think the 3-4 is all that, plus the yardage rankings speaks volumes about it effectiveness. That being said, I think we need to look at the Chiefs/Eagles tape to try and figure out a new scheme to try and mask the glaring deficiencies with our DBs. We obviously need more blitz packages.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

We simply can't expect to go tit for tat in a scoring fest with teams that have a better D than we do. The system(3-4) might not be to blame, but we obviously don't have the personnel to execute it effectively. Fletch should have retired after the playoff game last year. He isn't going to see a SB unfortunately anytime soon. Our only saving grace is the rest of the division is subpar as well.

I told Okie how I saw the Lions break their losing streak a few years ago against us at Ford Field when Zorn was still HC. That was embarrassing, but I think we might be ripe for the picking if our D doesn't come out with an inspired effort.

Our one true hitter was fined forty two thousand, and rightfully so by the rules the league wants to enforce, but then if other defenders are second guessing as they go in for tackles, hitting will be sloppier.

Defenses league wide, with only a few notable exceptions, are giving up a ton more yards this year.
The art of defense is becoming a lost art, but I think it is by design. The NFL is a product, just like any form of entertainment. With the exploding ticket prices, people aren't going to part ways with their money to watch a 13-10 yawner of a game. The fact that teams are going more and more to the 3-4, along with the don't hurt the QB at all costs mentality also is contributing to that. These so called rules aren't in place to protect the QB in as much as it is to speed up the tempo of the game and increase scoring.

That was really bad. I wouldnt necessarily be as horrified as i was when we lost to them than because this lions team is so much better. I will be more upset because i had huge expectations for the skins this year and 0-3 all but ends it imo.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

I think that Calvin Johnson will rip us a new one. But otherwise, the Loins offense will self-destruct with mistakes and turnovers. Clubless Cofield will be more dominant.

I think that Gryphon will look more comfortable, be more of a running threat, and the offense will look more like it did last year.

The Loins long for satisfaction but find none.

Skins 38, Loins 34

I see a victory for the burgundy and gold Sunday. Something just tells me we get it together this week and next and head into the bye tied for the division lead with a big game in Dallas week 6.

I don't think u can compare this team to zorn's team. Granted we haven't played well but I gotta lot more faith in our current roster and coaching than I did back then. We gonna be ok this weekend.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

I can't find what our injury report is....
I heard Hank is banged up. Not sure if merriweather is cleared. I heard griffin is only 91.43% healthy.

Gameplan should get back to skins football- perimeter stretch run game, i hqvent liked the ways weve used Helu and even all the passes to morris. It is more surprising to skins fans to see Alf catching passes than foolin the defense, it just is ineffective when We are trailing or need 50 yds for a 1st down, call some quick passes of slants, find Fred!!!!!, get griff rolling out away from a pocket that surely is going to be caving in, Moss is a Lion killer get creative and spread the ball type of day and close it out running it with Morris. Haslet calling soft cushion coverage, it is a must to cover the TE's and back field passing. I think we can win. Chris Thompson needs to make smart plays or move side for Paul. Rocca- I'm going to put my fist thru your mouth if you don't boom some punts so make your last year in B/G and possibly the nfl worthwhile.

The friggin home game isn't being televised 40 miles north to Bmore.
