Aros' Fearless Playoff Prediction Thread (Hawks @ Redskins)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Gonna' be an epic game imo. I see a low scoring game, both teams trying to run the ball a lot. Hopefully I'm wrong and RW puts up a huge game throwing the ball.

  • I have looked over this one a ton.

    Russell is a touchdown machine in the red zone the 2nd half. Guess what? The Skins gave up the 2nd most TD passes in the league. And who gave up the least passing touchdowns? Hint, they wear blue.

    Vegas has the total score at about 46 points. I like the over, because Russell is going to take advantage of that secondary. Deangelo Hall is going to lose his mind, Josh Wilson is going to be exposed for the middling cb he is, and our Tight ends are going to get two touchdowns. Morris is going to get some, he is good and our linebackers give up the middle a bit. But not too much. And don't forget the dude who has been ballin of late, the Real Mike Rob.

    35-14, Seattle. Our secondary balls, Robert Griffen bawls, Russel Wilson is ballz, and Pete has big clangin balls. Rat face will turn red, Dan Snyder will poop hisself, and I am going to start watching the Rewind on the Falcons.

    Record to date, 12-4

  • This game scares the hell out of me only because I don't want the team to lose. I don't want to face the prospect.

    The Redskins offense and the Seattle defense nullify each other to an extent, though, when faced with good defenses, Washington has scored about the season average for those teams.

    However, the Redskins don't have a secondary. We have a very, very good QB.

    Seattle 28 Redskins 16

    And Riggo's prediction based off 2011 is a bunch of hooey. That team had Tarvaris Jackson at QB. That team doesn't compare.

  • To the victor - another week of crap talking with opponent's fans
    To the loser - A few days of taunts in general and weeks from bitter rivals.

    Very little acknowledgement of the other team for why one's team lost and tons of griping about officials, some player or requests to blow up the team.

  • My heart's scared to death about this one. I badly want to get the win, not only to advance in the playoffs, but to win that playoff game on the road and put all that nonsense to bed. This team, these players are better than that. They can win it on the road and deserve to with the season they've put up this year.

    My head says we can win it. We're the better team. If it were at home, I'd be very, very confident of a huge win. As it's on the road, it's a giant test, but I'm in. I think they pass this one with flying colors!

    This team has RGIII, and Alfred Morris, a new receiving corps, and is playing at home. Dallas fans were going on about the same thing, how Romo was going to light up our secondary etc. He barely passed for 200 yards, with 3 INTs. I don't even think your secondary held him to such paltry numbers.

  • 37-28, 28-16 predictions above are pretty good. I'm feeling both of them.

    I'm going to say 27-21 Hawks (3 TD's and a couple FG's for us, 3 scores for them - can't decide between 17 and 21 for a final tally).

    Honestly, going into this week I kind of felt like it would be a 34-14 Hawks kind of game. The Redskins fans conviction in their team have swayed me a little bit.

    Beginning of the week, my feeling was that we tend to do well against mobile QB's (we have really good speed and tend not to just try to pressure all the time). We also tend to do well against power backs (exception AP - who doesn't- and Frank Gore). I also firmly believe our Defense is quite a bit better than Washington's D.

    I'm excited to see what out Defensive gameplan is against Washington.

    So then, yes, you admit that game has no bearing on this one. Thought so.

    And yes, Romo's numbers were 'better'. But we held Dallas to 7 points AND everyone knows Romo chokes under pressure so we can't exactly give credit to your secondary for his general inability when the season is on the line. EDIT: Oh, and for those who don't know, Riggo is also misrepresenting the facts by neglecting to mention Romo's 2TDs (compared to 1 v. Seattle). Weasel.

After some RW heroics, I envision us being up by 3-6 points with a few minutes left but end up losing after our defense crumbles in front of their home crowd. This is the one major weak link the Hawks have and I see it coming out once again in the playoffs (if not this week then certainly the following week). The Hawks have showed us a lot this season and we have much to be proud of but I feel we're gonna come up agonizingly short once again on the road.

    You, sir, have hit on the insecurity smoldering in the back of my gut. I fear we will do everything right to win this game, and still lose it. The blowout wins and the show in Buffalo have not blocked out the memories of Detroit and Miami. That said, I would love to see Wilson light up that weak Washington secondary.

  • I'm waiting for someone to say something to PISS off Sherman more then he is. Although since this team stand as one and has each others back our secondary is going to make sure Russell Wilson comes out ahead in the turnover battle.The Skins WR's and RG3 wll remember which Amtrak train they boarded some time next Wednesday. Garcon and Moss are not built to take shots and be physical.

    Next up first thing were gonna do is punch the Skins offense in the face and give them a bloody nose to set the tone for the game.

    Wilson is gonna run or version and Lynch is going to eat time and yardage up.

    My biggest concern is officials and if they allow them to play.

    Bad field conditions will slow both teams down, but faster is still faster on bad fields.

    Having watched Shanahan over the years in the playoffs he wants to run it first and foremost and have the QB manage, even with Elway thats how he won with Davis running and defense, yeah if they are down he will open up the airwaves but it's not his plan since he wants to play safe. If we get up early and force his hand to pass then this game could be a run away with the skins secondary suspect and ours will be waiting to bait him into mistakes.

  • Too Close for comfort. Field goal with 2 minutes left, then a defensive stop, probably an interception to win the game. I hope we win more convincingly.

  • 28-23

    1st qtr- We jump out 14-0 early lead then go conservative and run, run, pass, punt.

    2nd qtr- Redskins stick to their run game and make progress getting a TD and 2 FG's

    Half 14-13 Hawks lead

    3rd qtr- turnover on opening drive leads to redskins TD, hawk fan pulling their hair out now down 14-20
    Wilson rebounds with a 80 yd drive converting 3 for 3 on 3rd downs and Throwing his 1st TD of the game
    Hawks lead 21-20 and driving

    4th qtr- back into conservative run mode but lynch breaks a big gainer inside the red-zone and Wilson passes for his 2nd TD putting hawks up 28-20.
    RGIII responds with a bomb to Garcon and has the skins just outside the hawks 20 yd. with 9 min to play. On 3rd and 7 Clemons come up with a huge sack dropping Griffin for a 10 yd loss. Redskins opt for 48 yd fg. and it's good.
    Offense only converts one first down before punting as hawk fans hold their breath that our defense can hold. With 5 min on the clock RGIII makes a few magical plays to keep his team alive as they are marching down the field, but opting not to slide he looses the ball and the hawks recover. Wilson and Lynch run the read option to perfection and convert two more 3rd and shorts before kneeling at the redskins 30 yd line.

    Hawks win 28-23 in a nail bitter

    I don't think that score is possible in OT is it?

    Never mind I'm an idiot. New rules it could be 20-20. Redskins get a FG and we score a TD.

  • The natural grass will slow down our defense some,I think mainly in the short range middle areas.I can see our players taking the wrong angle on tackles giving up some yards to the running back.They know this field a lot better than us.Our pass protection I think will do just fine.Just checked the weather report for DC and it says nothing but sun and in the 40's till game day,high 20's and dry at night.At least it won't be a muddy slopfest, unless they have the Miami ground crew with the sprinklers going off.Our D will match up against RGIII better than Redskins D vs Russel Wilson and our run game should be fine.I see the game being within a TD or fieldgoal at the end with the player matchups going in our favor.How good is their fieldgoal kicker?I don't anything about him,too lazy to look it up.

    Edit:Just checked. FG kicker seems good hitting reliably.Likes at most in the forties,long of 50.

  • Skins' defense is very average and because of that Seattle controls the ball for over 35 mins. with Beast and Turbin helping keep Morris and Griffin off the field. That's just the way Pete likies it. Hawks' defense bends some but also stops TD chances several times forcing FGs.

    Average D? I thought it ranked 28th? Although maybe it has improved over the last part of the season, like our offense has (although I can't fathom it having improved anywhere CLOSE to the magnitude our O has).

    I think it'll be real close, the ulcer inducing type of game we all really hate, only due to the unusually raucous crowd. I really hate predicting, due to a superstitious nature, but have to say:

  • Funny story before my baseless prediction. Literally the first customer I served this week at my bar/restaurant was an old man and his 2 daughters. The old man was wearing a Redskins windbreaker jacket! I'm thinkin to myself, what are the odds?! So I go over to this guy and I'm trying to be a good sport and respect my elders, plus, one of his daughters was pretty hot and started things off by saying "I'll take a Modelo, I'm pretty easy", with a smile haha

    So I tell the man, "as fate would have it, you're being served by one of the few Seahawks diehards born in NY." He just looks at me and laughs and goes "well, you guys are in a lot of trouble, you ain't no good on the road."

    That was the moment... the moment I lost all respect for this man. I didn't even feel the need to defend myself, simply saying "If you guys in DC think this one's gonna be an easy game, you've got another thing coming. Russell Wilson and the Hawks are special. Probably the best team you've played all season." He answered back with some mumbo jumbo about playing the Ravens, how even if RGIII did get hurt by the Hawks D Kirk Cousins would come right in and light it up. So I stopped talking to the guy. As he's leaving he says "well, I won't wish you good luck." And walks right out. Pretty funny but still indicative of how a lot of Redskins fans view this game and the threat of the Seahawks in general.

    With that being said... This game reminds me a lot of 2010, when the Packers (a similarly built, young team with little playoff experience at the time) went up against dual-threat QB Michael Vick on the road in Philly. The Packers used a tough, hard fought game to propel them to the Super Bowl and ultimately to win it all.

    Everyone pointing to the fact that this is a young team and that they're worried about the Hawks coming out tight need to realize that the same can be said about Washington. Having said that, I think both teams come out of the gate a little tight. I'm expecting RGIII to have the more gaudy passing numbers in terms of yardage and probably rushing numbers as well, but Russell Wilson will be more efficient and accurate. Late in the game I think RGIII throws a pick to seal the deal for the Hawks in an intense game. The Seahawks get the playoff road monkey off of their backs...

    tell you right now, you need to stop with the Dallas talk, we crushed Dallas at home, your team looked extremly mediocre against a bad Cowboys D and a even worse looking Tony Choko... so please just stop.. the team you are facing sunday is better than dallas in every facit and the comparison is not even close... you have no secondary, and if you're going to rush 5,6 guys every down, RW is going to screen you to death or simply out scramble an ancient London Fletcher.. Dallas made him look like Lawrence Taylor.. pittiful.. i have respect for the Skins, think you're a great team .. But Seattle is the better team top to bottom, and i wouldn't be counting on those road woes to kick in any time soon.. JMO

  • Very interesting matchup. Mobile QB's, zone-read, play-action, overrated receivers, hard-to-judge O-lines on both sides.

    The clincher is our defense. It's the #1 scoring defense in the league, in case you haven't heard, and one of the few speedy and smart enough to dismantle a mobile QB with the read-option (Newton had his worst day of the year against us and Kaepernick didn't have fun either). Their pass defense? Hemorrhages passing touchdowns.

    RG3 gets some heroics late and keeps the pass rush off him with his play-fakes; Brandon Browner will get burned, repeatedly. But it won't be enough. An Earl Thomas pick or two, from RG3 locking onto receivers, should be the difference.

  • I dont like the way this one is shaping up... Alfred Morris will run wild as will rg3!! Wilson struggles in the first half against their aggressive def putting us in a big whole... we try to make a run but fall short!!

    I expect our defense to maintain the game in points allowed. I mean, we are #1 in that category. Plus our offense has been clicking the past month.

    All we really gotta do is stop the run and protect Dangeruss from crazy blitzing and this one is over.

  • well there sure is a lot of confidence here . . . and rightfully so, your team has been playing real good football . . . IF this game were in Seattle i would have to go with the Hawks . . . but it is not and while you guys are not anywhere near as bad on the road as a lot of people would like to state, you are also not as good on the road as you are at home . . . And you haven't played against the skins offense . . . while i agree you shut down the 49ers, that is not the skins offense either . . . i feel this will end up being a pretty high scoring game as i don't have a lot of faith in the Skins D to be able to shut down the hawks offense, but they are very opportunistic and have done a great job creating turnovers all year and i feel that will be the most important part of this game, winning the turnover battle . . . i feel the Skins will protect the ball and force a couple of turnovers that will utimately cost the hawks the game . . .

    Well, you're entitled to your opinion. Even when that opinion is wrong. Which it is, on this occasion. Redskins don't have a shot in this one. Sorry (I'm not).

    There sure is alot of arrogance amonst Seattle fans this year...that you are going to come east coast and piss on us in OUR house. Its going to be really fun when the Skins win and shut everyone up who's underestimated us (again).

    That won't happen because you don't have a shot at winning this game. You guys have a good young(ish) team and are probably going to win several division titles over the coming years, maybe even a SB, but not this year. This year you have no shot at making it out of the wildcard round.

    What do you mean "again"? Go look at the Redskins wikipedia team and tell me the Redskins haven't been irrelevant for the better part of 15 years. Take it from a fanbase that knows - you gotta earn that respect.

    Interesting, coming from someone who's signature argument thus far has been a 2011 game between Rex Grossman, Roy Helu, and Tarvaris Jackson.

  • I will take the better all around team to win. That team is unquestionably the Hawks. As long as they play reasonably close to their best, they should be able to win, even on the road.

    The only part of that argument was the success of our offense versus your secondary. I concede Russell Wilson and your offense will be a much greater challenge this year. However, I don't find any reason to believe your defense will hold us under 20 points on our home turf, not the way we are playing now. Not with our offense vastly improved, and not after a less talented QB, RB, and WR corps put up 450 yards on you guys at your house just last season. I've heard your LB play is better this year, fine...but is that enough to offset our offense - where we've focused fastly over the past offseason with RGIII and putting balanced weaponry around him?

    However, these predictions of 21 point blowouts on the road in a road playoff game make me laugh. We aren't the Buffalo Bills.

    Our defense hasnt given up more than 28 all season long. I don't see any chance of the Skins getting to 31.
    This will be a close game though....20-16 Hawks.

    Now that kind of prediction I can at least respect and understand. I wouldn't be totally shocked if its a lower scoring game and both teams go conservative on offense (at least initially)
