Re: Pregame Thread - Commanders v Eagles

Darius Slay could potentially be out for Sunday's game. Prepare to see Philly employ the same game plan as the Lions by bringing extra rushers on pass plays. Hopefully, Turner doesn't wait until the second half to adjust. It's not like Minnesota didn't have ample opportunities to make things interesting last night. They (Cousins) continued to shoot themselves in the foot once they entered the red zone. Irv Smith, Jr. also dropped what would've been a walk-in TD.

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Sunday's game is a shootout.

Pressure up the middle
Sweat and Davis contain the edge
Curl comes back and shadows Jalen
D gets 3 TOs and 5 sacks

Fuck the Eagles

They would beat us with their second team. There is absolutely no point in tuning into this game. I donít even feel like Debbie Downer saying that. I feel sane.

I know crazy things can happen in the NFL but man after Sunday it just seems like we will be doomed when facing top 10 Offenses and the Eagles are just that.

Eagles 37
Commanders 27

Re: Pregame Thread - Commanders v Eagles

All I can say is that it's the NFC East and records go out the window in those games. Anyone of those teams can beat any other one of those teams on any Sunday!

That is true about three teams in the division, but not Washington. Wrap your head around some of these numbers:
Since 2000, the Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants all have a better winning percentage within the division than outside of it. That's only mathematically possible because of how horrendous Washington has been inside the division.

The Giants have the second worst divisional record in the East since 2000 with a winning percentage of .500; Washington's divisional winning percentage in that span? .360.

They're the only team in the division that is below .500 in divisional games in over the last twenty seasons. That means that collectively all of the other teams have winning divisional records because Washington sucks so badly against them.

I've brought this up many times in the past, and twenty years of data, with the results of nearly 1,500 games played among the four teams, bear this out: The other three teams in the division step it up for divisional games, while Washington brings it down.

I feel that is a reasonable prediction we will put up points too but not enough to make up for a weak defense.

Re: Pregame Thread - Commanders v Eagles

Doesn't sound like anyone is giving us a chance in this one. Our offense has been good also. Not quite as potent as Philly's but still good. We are at home as well. Know everyone is down on the defense but Detroit put up a lot of points on Philly also. Will be a tough game to win but not impossible. Let's do this!

It's more of "same shit different yr" vibe. As a fan of this team you expect the worst outcome so if we win it'll be a pleasant surprise

Re: Pregame Thread - Commanders v Eagles

I was really hoping we could skip the pre-game thread, the game day thread, and go right to the post-mortem in which we talk about whether the team can bounce back against Dallas. I do think we're about to get walloped. Hoping against hope that I am dead wrong.

The only hope is Carson Wentz's revenge tour. Gotta put up 30+.
