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

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

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.

Can certainly say the same about the lions too though.
However - yes i think we snatch a victory.

No offense to you CB59, but Skip Bayless is a complete moron and quite the diva himself. I love when Steven A. hands him his @ss on a regular basis. Keep in mind that Bayless is the idiot who said "white fans want Cousins".

This article is a lot of conjecture and Bayless stirring the pot, as much of the media has done on the RG3 issue all off-season because it generates hits and ratings. Here's the bottom line, RG3 has the passing ability to be one of the best of all-time, without the Read-Option. As I've said many time before, if we had a HC and OC who could scheme a productive NFL offense we would thrive on O (now we have the franchise QB, so that excuse is gone). Imagine a Patriots or Saints type offense....with Brady or Brees being able to run a 4.4.....good luck stopping that.

The RO has been figured out by NFL DCs and the increase of risk to a franchise QB is not worth the reward of increased YPG until you get inside the 10. Inside the 10 the compressed field takes away the main advantages of the RO.

Unfortunately there's a disconnect somewhere in Redskins Park. and my suspicion is either we don't have the X & O firepower that can teach the advanced NFL passing game, the coaches have misconceptions of RG3's abilities, or the coaches are so hard-headed that they think what worked 15 yrs ago in Denver and 5 years ago in Houston will work here, today. Probably a combination of all three.

Ooops I forgot, I want RG3 to fail and Cousins to be put in anyway

The media likes to build up players but they LOVE to tear them down.

What makes you so sure NFL DC's know how to stop the RO? Most of our best runs by Alfo has been on that play this year.

What they use in Houston 5 years ago, is the same thing they are using today.

Couch Coaching at it's finest.

lol I don't think the dude can do it. D Hall may be able to keep up speed wise but his coverage blows.
Had Crawford not gotten hurt, I think he would have worked his way into the starting spot with Amerson. His injury and Thomas's injury and Merriweather's inability to play more than 11 minutes don't help.
