Lions vs Skins Game Day Thread

1st, I would like to say that the lack of a gameday thread at 12:01am has clearly been a major reason for our 0-2 start.

2nd, I'm not volunteering to start one then.

Is this game "for the season", it sure feels like a huge must win given the stats on 0-3 teams. But then again, if Dallas loses - could happen, then we might be in one of those rare seasons where 0-3 isn't a death sentence.

I hate the 0 - whatever stat the Lions have going in Washington, just because the old Skins(2007-2011) would be doomed to lose just for that reason, though we did beat them in 2007 at Fedex.

To this game:
Our offensive stats are nearly equal, of course we really have only played 2 halves of football, so if we can get the offense going IN THE FIRST HALF we should be able to double what they can do offensively.

Our defense obviously needs to play with a lead. That is a heavy burden on this offense right now.

Detroit's defense, from stats looks effective, but they did give Minnesota 24 points (though they shut AP down after his first big run).


Bottomline,
The Skins need this game a whole lot more than Detroit does. Let's see if they can find it within themselves to play like they need it.

Skins 31
Lions 28

Re: Lions vs Skins Game Day Thread

If we lose this game, it's pretty much over for the season. I wouldn't expect another insane run like last year. Could it happen? Sure. The numbers of teams doing such are very little though. Our defense (players and coaches) have to get their heads out of their asses and play like they are getting paid. What we've seen so far is lame.

Offense needs to get their shit together as well in the first half. We can't continuing to put our defense in horrible spots, spotting teams 20+ points and expect anything good to come from it.

I'm actually not excited for this game. I'm hoping they actually give me a reason to be.

Today the Redskins bust out. RG3 is tired of the can he return to form talk and the Lions are going to be shredded.

Yup - i actually hope none of the players are aware of it.

Without Bush our offense isn't hanging 20 on anybody in any half. If we win today it will be a low scoring, close-run affair.

Good luck!

Inactives

The NFL Inactives Report


Baker, Gumbs, Grossman, LeRibust, Royster, Davis, Forbath

Holy shit. Fred Davis is inactive. Wonder if it's the ankle or his ass getting benched in GB.

He should hire a lawyer and sue!....oh wait

Davis went from being a guy Shanahan loved last year (and put up with) to a guy he's nothing more than putting up with. This is what happens when a Jordan Reed comes around

Well played with LeRibust

And I think you mean Gumbs, not Grubbs (or did I miss a joke there?)

Simply messed that one up. No idea why I put down Grubbs.

I think you may have explained my edit questioning if Davis was inactive for the ankle or his benching.
