Another bad match up for us. Big physical Dline that our oline will not be able to deal with. On offense they obviously pass the ball well so that means another long day for our defense. Lions 34 Skins 24.

And your boy Joe Staley allowed more pressures and a sack against Clay. That ends that debate Trent Williams >Staley.


Anyway as far as this Lions game:

How do you stop Calvin Johnson? No I'm serious how do you stop Calvin Johnson because I don't have any clue with our secondary. Maybe we could do the old gunner formation on him throughout the game, but I doubt it works, he would just run a slant into the middle of the field and still catch the ball, break tackles and outrun us.

Lets say for some reason CJ doesn't get the ball or we defend him ok enough. Theres still Burlison who will give Josh Wilson and DHall problems.

Say you somehow stop Calvin and Burlison. Who stops Pettigrew? London can't cover a TE for his life. Celek and Finley had huge games against us, why shouldn't Pettigrew?

Then lets say for some reason, we are able to stop those 3. Who the hell stops Reggie Bush? London, again, can't run with/to/from/near a RB either. He is a similar version to LeSean McCoy.

The only way we beat Detroit's Offense:

- press them
- Double team Calvin all the time
- have our DL collapse the center forcing Bush to run outside
- hope bush's knee hurts him again forcing him to leave the game
- hope Calvin gets injured enough to miss this game
- put a SS on Pettigrew
- get pressure from all over on stafford causing him to force or over throw passes.

But now the only other problem is Detroits Defense is pretty good. Stephen Tullouch can play. Fairley and Suh are two great DTs. The safeties are upgrades over last year. Where are our weaknesses? OL is definitely one of them. I would also keep an eye on Suh, before, after and during the whistle. He is the kind of guy that would go low on a QB coming off knee surgery.

If I were the Shanahan's, I'm calling a lot of power runs off tackle, and a lot of bootlegs.

Garcon should have a big day; ditto for Jordan Reed.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

Not another "... and fights their guts out!" That is almost a cliché anymore and a joke to boot. They are saying in the Detroit News that Bush might not be available for Sunday, but don't totally rule him out either at this point. We need to practice like he will be playing. Only way we have a chance of winning is Haslett mixing up some nice blitz packages and we actually get some turnovers come our way. This needs to be the last time we draft any defensive backs outside of the first round. We have no business putting in mid round rooks as starters.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

Maybe , just maybe .... having our best DL ( Cofield ) playing with one arm , along with JJ and AC out has a lot to do with the Defense having some big problems ? Staring 2 Rookie DB's and a QB missing most / all of OTA's , M. camp and Training camp is part of the reason for the poor start ? Just my 2 cents , we need a pro bowl caliber CB and for Rambo to progress along with another top OL to be championship caliber team .

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

There has been way too much talk of "leadership" surrounding RGIII. I comnpletely agree with what Shanny said in this quote:

"What people have to do, you can't worry about other people, you worry about yourself," Shanahan said. "Once you play the perfect game, then you can start to worry about other people. That's what I tell everybody, whether you're an offensive lineman or quarterback or tight end. You have to concentrate on your job. If everyone concentrates on their job and they do it perfectly, then you have a chance for good things to happen."

Each and and every player who steps on the field can be a team leader based entirely on what he does when he is on the field.

After the first two games, it is apparent that every single Redskins player needs to step up his game to get a win this week. I think they'll do it.

Redskins 31, Detroit 20

Yea, because we are going to judge players based on one games instead of entire seasons. So now Ryan Kerrigan is better than Aldon Smith because Kerrigan had more sacks against the Packers.

Let us wait untill the season ends to determine who the better tackle is.

I'll give you this, Trent Williams is a better pass blocker than Staley.

Isnt this what Patriots coach Belicheck always says... "Do your Job!" It looks like everyone else is waiting for someone to make a play except Kerrigan. He is the only guy making plays on defense, always has, and always will.

I didn't hear Clays name once Sunday. I heard it throughout the day when they played San Fran. It counts for something. Also Kerrigan makes more plays than Aldon. Remember Aldon smith with Justin Smith= 19.5 sacks. Without Justin smith = 0 sacks.
