Re: Skins v Rams pregame & predictions

offense: Eliminate Tunovers and the oline must play better

defense: Safety play needs to be better- must cover the TEs and over to provide over-top-coverage on Woods and Watkins.

I think folks are talking about the wrong D-Line front...I gotta feeling our D-Line will have a coming out party vs their Oline.

Re: Skins v Rams pregame & predictions

I predict we run the ball less than 15 times.

was talking with a coworker and we were talking about how it makes us sick to Cook and Fournette completely running around and running thru folks but yet everyone says don't spend assets on RB, they are a dime a dozen.

yeah...

I'm jealous for sure, but it seems that RBs have a bigger impact in game 1 then they generally do throughout the year. How many first or second round RBs in recent history have taken their team to the Super Bowl? Not many. It's important to have some semblance of a run game for balance and a stud RB certainly helps win games, but last year I heard that on average "balanced" Offenses called 60/40 pass/run.

So... I think I'm happy with the Allen pick, but we have been whiffing on our RBs recently, maybe Perine pans out, but he needs to get himself on the field.

Re: Skins v Rams pregame & predictions

I think Offense will continue to struggle to find themselves in this game, I don't think Kirk will be quite as inaccurate, but our running game will still be suspect, Redzone struggles will continue, and I think it's a little early still to expect Cousins and Pryor to hit the deep ball consistently yet. I don't see us getting more than 2TD and 4FG. If we are going to win I think the D has to keep us in it. Also, winning the field position and TO battle is going to be key. I think this D can get 2-3 TOs in any given game (not on average), if the offense can limit themselves to 1-2 we're in good shape.

26-20 Skins

Need a line that can run block otherwise your back doesn't matter.

It's not a one game season. Everyone gets rich fat and happy on the Saints D. I'd like to see the line at least let Kelley get to the line of scrimmage w/out getting hit.

Yeah when all we can do is run left, teams pick that up fast

Re: Skins v Rams pregame & predictions

I think Cousins settles in here after being his typical spaz self in the first week. We would have put up a lot of points against the Eagles had some of his throws just been on target.

McVay though figures out a way to put us in a bind schematically, and scores his share of points. We win because Cousins is more settled, and Goff spazzes under blitz pressure.

I agree with Matty's reply just below yours, IMO the problem is not so much the Rb's. The bigger problem is the O-line, TE's and FB's blocking. It is fucked up when the defense is behind the line of scrimmage as the Rb is getting the ball. We could have a young OJ Simpson and Gayle Sayres and we would still not able to open holes for them.
The blocking was a major problem last year and nothing was done this off season to address it.
I hate to say this, but we are a fucking finesse team now. Thanks Gruden and FO.
I would much rather be a smash mouth balanced offense any day of the week. Leave the passing records for the stat geeks.

Yes you do need an OL for sure to open up some holes, but Kelley is just whatever to me, I think it is understated that the back doesn't play a role in there too, we have seen a lot of backs who can turn a 2-3 yard gain into a 15 yard one and Kelley doesn't have that ability to me.

Re: Skins v Rams pregame & predictions

After reading this, I totally forgot they have Sammy Watkins... Argh.

He's nasty when he's not hurt, and people like that typically just own us for some reason.
