Post Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

I hope it's safe to start talking about next week's game already. I was checking out the stats on the Hawks at NFL.com. It seems they can put a few points on the board, but their defense would appear soft against the pass. In week 1 they allowed about 250 yds to Leftwich, 130 of which went to Jimmy Smith. They seemed to shut down Vick & Co. pretty well in week 2. Alexander and Hasselbeck are the keys on offense for them.

Hasselbeck has only been sacked 5 times so far and has thrown for over 200 yds each game. Alexander is sporting a 5.2 ypc and coming off a good game against the Falcons.

I think this would be a good time for coach Gibbs to open up the offense more and go to more intermediate routes in addition to taking our shots downfield, hoping that will pull some guys out of the box and allow us to open things up for CP. I think our defense can contain Alexander the way we've been playing lately but we do need to harass Hasselbeck and pressuring the QB has been a problem for us so far.

Re: Vs. Seahawks Preview

It's probably a little early - once they play this week it'll be easier to break down matchups.

I wonder if Shawn Springs feels like he owes the Seahawks a little extra?

good point he may be wanting to get a little even after being dumped for being 'hurt too much'

Re: Vs. Seahawks Preview

last time the 2 teams played, the defense kept hasselback under 250 and Alexander under 100 and I don't see any reason that can't be done again since their wr group isn't as talented as it was 2 years ago and our defense is improved roster wise as well as our awesome coaching staff. Plus the skins won despite ramsey throwing under 250 with 2ints and our duo of rbs running for 115 yards. their defense doens't really frighten me and hopefully Williams opens up our defense a little more unlike how conservative the gameplan seemed Monday night.

Re: Vs. Seahawks Preview

As long as Williams keeps teams under 13 points, I don't care how he does it. He seems to be the master at making people think they are going to see one thing and then he shows them something else.

Does it amazing anyone else here that even though we didn't sack Bledsoe, he couldn't find his receivers the whole game?

I thought it was going to be a problem. Not putting (what I thought) enough pressure on the bledsoe. I know it is what they expected. Liberal doses of jailbreak blitz. It totally worked. I guess Williams can get it done, and never let you have what you have perpared for! Clever dude!! I'm sure he wil gice the Seahawks what they do not expect

Re: Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

I watched some of the Hawks/Cards game out here. Seattle has a good offense, but the Cards, well still are the Cards. Seattle has trouble putting teams away at times. This is a very interesting match up. Glad I get to see the Skins at home on TV out here at least.

Re: Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

it will definately be defense vs run game to me. I think our secondary can covere Seattles WRs with no problem. On defense for us, whatever works. If the Giants loose tonight (Sunday) and we can win against Seattle we'll have a sole possesion of 1st in the NFC East. Even early that will feel really good.

Re: Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

As some have already posted, Seattle is a mystery team because they are so inconsistent. As a consequence I don't feel comfortable making any sort of prediction, I want the Skins to win of course. Our offense needs to show us something though, we really need to get the running game going. It would be nice to see what our Defence could do if we played with

1) the Lead

2) running game, D not on the field for most of the game

Still the win in Dallas was amazing and shows this team has a lot of heart, which I will give Joe Gibbs 100% credit for the fact that the Redskins have heart again. Watching the Oakland - Philly game brought back a lot of painfull memories of the Norval era.

Re: Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

Well its finally time for me to focus on Seattle. To be honest, I look at this game as a must win. I think Seattle is a very average team, that we need to beat at home. Looking down our schedule i see this as a game we have to have. The Seahawks are not a very good road team, and we should be able to run on them quite a bit. Shaun Alexander is the vocal point of their offense, and I think if we stop him, we win the game. With our run defense, I really think we can force the game into the hands of Matt Hasslebeck. I think Hasslebeck is pretty good, but we should cover their crappy recivers like a blanket. I like the Skins in this one, and I think its one we need.

Re: Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

I agree that stopping alexander is absoluetly key to this game. Their passing game can still be very dangerous though. Nothing hurts a running team like putting up points on them early.

Re: Redskins vs. Seahawks Preview

I see Seattle's blocking being better for running. I think we can put a lot of pressure on Hasselbeck this week.

And ANY pressure on Hasselbeck = INTs.

He loves to force the ball.
