Once RG-III is introduced to Mr Chancellor, we'll be seeing Cousins for the rest of the game.

Unfortunately, that wouldn't give me any additional comfort. Cousins is better than about 1/2 the QBs we have faced this year, and we won't be specifically game planning for him. I would rather RG3 keep playing through the pain.

IMHO we win this game by scoring points early and often. Our D will limit them, but they will still score points. We need to build a lead and put pressure on them to play catch-up ball. I really don't want this to come down to the wire because they have the ability to pull out a few great plays. And, I don't like it coming down to the wire on their home field (see McCoy's slip in the first Rams game).....

If the Redskins had any big mismatches in their favor on offense favor I'd be worried.

They don't.

Go ahead and guarantee the win, once we lose you'll feel like shit and start making threads like fire Pete, fire RW.


Didn't we all guarantee the win in week 1 against the Cardinals because all their QB played like shit in pre-season?


There's no guarantee wins in the NFL. Injuries and Upsets happen all the time.

LOL. A team that lost to the Panthers. This team cant overlook ANYBODY.

If the Redskins didnt underestimate the Cleveland Browns, they are not going to underestimate the Seattle Seahawks.


It's irrelevant. they can over-estimate us if they want. They still have no shot.


You sound like a Saint fan before the 2010 playoff game.

How can you say no shot? That's like saying we are superior and you are lame...Yes the Seahawks are good, but to me no shot is missing the bus to the stadium. The Chiefs could beat the Broncos on any given Sunday. In fact the score was 17-9 on 11/25.

don't give me this crap....

Don't read it if you don't like it. The Seahawks are very healthy, very hot and better all over the field than that wee club of yours up there. The skins might as well miss the bus, it won't affect the outcome of the game one iota. Zero chance the skins win this one. No chance at all. You had a nice run after a crappy start to the season, but it's about to come to an end on Sunday night. Don't cry, though. Still a lot to like about the future of your wee team up there, and winning 7 in a row - albeit against shite competition - is nothing to be sniffed at.

Still, no shot on Sunday.

ok..we'll see...i never said we would win, but i'm not going to admit the skins have no chance. don't expect to come out here and beat us 58-0 and try to run up the score or whatever it is you do...scoring TDs up 51 points with 2 min left in the game

LOL, wow. The 'running up the score' thing. Guess what? the team playing Defense can stop it if they don't like it. Whining about running up the score if for pussies and losers.

I already said in the prediction thread that I don't know what the score will be, all I know is that the Seahawks will win, and the Redskins don't have a chance of winning. Not a one. No shot.

If we're up 51 points with two minutes left and we score another td, take it as a sign of respect about what your team is capable of. We don't want any last minute heroics.

Yes, I am a Redskins fan.

No, I am not here to talk smack.

However, I do want to correct two false things about the above quote.

1) If anyone thinks Shanahan is dumb enough to let his team underestimate the Seahawks because of some "road weakness", well, that is just plumb silly.

2) The entire media seems to think the Redskins will win? Really?

Joe Namath says Seahawks: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutd ... --nfl.html

35/46 Experts pick the Seahawks: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/dc- ... -seahawks/

The Seahawks are favored, on the ROAD. The only road playoff team that is favored this weekend.

So where are we getting the silly notion that the "entire media" thinks the Redskins will win? Do tell as I am genuinely curious.

I was referring to players on either team...Joe Namath style. At this point I don't think its going to happen, at least publicly.

Lets see... are the skins a more rounded harder hitting team than the niners? more talented than the ninnrs?

how bout the rams, can the skins beat the rams?

I say no on both accounts, the hawks just skinned both those teams..

hopefully the hawks are focused and determined to flip FedEx stadium on its head, if so its going to be a hard hitting game for sure, its all or nothing at this point, all or nothing... ;)

On offense we are better than both of them. And you also lost to the Rams at their place. :) We would have beaten them on the road if not for an asinine penalty that took us out of FG range.

Quit making excuses. The Rams put 31 points on the Skins. Good teams overcome bad calls.

I want to pee the spray tan off of Mike Shannahan. Don't ask me how that's relevant to this discussion.

Not making any excuses. Our defense has played much better over the last 8 games, and so has your offense.

The only thing I guarantee is that the Redskins will not blow the Seahawks out. Nobody calls me chicken, Miles. Nobody. Err, I mean, Nobody blows the Seahawks out.

If you guys beat us, it won't be by more than 7. Guaranteed.

How will Russell Wilson react to an elimination game on the road though? RGIII is 6-0 in them this season, Kirk Cousins 1-0 with a save against the Ravens.

I don't expect a blowout on either side either.

I'm done talking, these fans have earned a number two spot right behind the 9ers in my opinion, this is ridiculous, the game CANNOT get here soon enough.

Start watching from the last half of the 4th quarter of the Seahawks @ Bears game. When's the last time RG3 strung together back-to-back long drives (97 yards @ end of 4th, 80 yards to start overtime) to win against an elite defense? Oh; never.

Wilson has ice in his veins. Dude doesn't know what "getting rattled" means. The real question is, how will RG3 react? Let's face it, neither of these QBs has faced this level of pressure, yet. Elimination games in the regular season are not the same thing as a playoff game. These two QBs will do their talking on the field; we'll find out which one chokes.

in case you haven't been paying attention, the hawks have been playing elimination games the entire second half.. had we not won against the niners or rams, we were in danger of not making the playoffs'.. had we not won the games leading up to those games we would have not made the playoffs.....

and you hang on to the your offense is elite dream, sounds good, but in reality , you're good not elite, and your defense is mediocre,, ours is very good on the road, and elite at home..

in my opinion... if our defense shows up sunday, you're toast... because our offense will score points...

I highly doubt any of our players would come out and guarantee a win. They all seem much more humble than that. BUT, if any Hawk player did come out and guarantee a win, I think it would be Sherman, ET, or Bam Bam. They're all very confident guy, especially Sherman.

9ers and now Skins fans show up here trying to change our minds instead of having discussions. That's the biggest difference between them and fans of other teams that are to talk. I'm surprised how quickly the skins fans became almost unbearable; it took 9er fans a couple of years.

Im not worried about the hawks, The skins d is a joke, the only thing they know how to do is blitz, after all they almost lost to romo with 177 blitz's.. now if that isnt creative or lame.. or even just coward crap i don't know what is. Either way We'll be fine, I dont see any threat in the eddy murphy look a like

In the big picture, both teams are able to move the ball on the ground, through the air, with mobile, elusive, rookie QB's

Very evenly matched. I think the difference is defense, period. The Hawks just do it better. No matter how it is broken down, points, rushing or passing the Hawks are pretty good at it.

I think both teams will put up decent points in the first half, then PC will have the personnel qualified to make the proper adjustments. One thing PC's teams have been good at is that very aspect. I think the defense gets a break or two in the second half and capitalize.

I will guarantee it in the smack shack, but reality is that anything can happen and that is why we watch it like a crack addict.

Very evenly matched. I think the difference is defense, period. The Hawks just do it better. No matter how it is broken down, points, rushing or passing the Hawks are pretty good at it.

To be fair, the Redskins have a terrible defense. They are ranked 28th in the NFL in defense.
-30th against the pass
-5th against the rush

The Seahawks are ranked 4th in defense.
-6th against the pass
-10th against the rush

Obviously a huge advantage for the Seahawks

The Redskins are ranked 5th in the NFL in offense.
-20th passing
-1st rushing

The Seahawks are ranked 17th in the NFL in offense.
-27th passing
-3rd rushing

Now, I will explain why I think those rankings mean absolutely nothing. The Redskins have the 28th ranked defense, yet 11 out of their 16 games have come against teams ranked in the top half of the league in offense. Giants x2, Cowboys x2, Eagles x2, Saints, Falcons, Bucs, Panthers, Ravens.

Conversely, the Seahawks have played 9 offenses that rank in the bottom half of the league, statistically speaking. Cardinals x2, Rams x2, Jets, Bears, Dolphins, Vikings, Bills.

The point here is that stats are usually going to reflect the opponents you play. These two teams are pretty evenly matched in my opinion. On paper, the Seahawks have a better defense, while the Redskins have a better offense. Does that mean the game will play out that way? Certainly not. Stay tuned.

Being underdogs AT HOME to a team they beat last season, and a team that talked trash then got spanked IN ITS OWN HOUSE...yet are still favorites, is going to fire our players up beyond belief.

I think a few blowout wins (the SF one was impressive undoubtedly but they seemed flat after beating NE), have gotten to this fanbases head.


"Spanked"?

23-17 is "spanked"?

This is the game that Russell Wilson has been preparing for his whole life.

In Russell I trust.

(((Russell + Lynch) + (Tate * Rice)) * Tanzania) = ((Redskins) / (SEAdef * Tanzania)

I guarantee some posters on here are going to be incredibly surprised if the Seahawks don't win, which is totally possible. Expecting/hoping your team to win and saying you guarantee that the win/other team are two completely different situations. I'm hoping the Seahawks make these posters look like "geniuses" this week.

The problem with all these Ranks on offense and defense I keep seeing are bogus (Well, defense no much, cause its a proper evaluator.) because they are based on nothing but overall yards. Thats absolutly stupid to rank a teams passing by overall yards.

Teams that have good defense, will win better field position and have to transverse shorter distances to score. Thusly decreasing their overall yardage and somehow being a worse offense then others. This is what overall yardage cant predict.

DVOA is by far the best metric when measuring an offenses true skills. If you dont want to accept that, its ok to say you dont understand it.

Yards is just the easiest way to rank teams.

My problem with DVOA is, it's pretty "murky"... They tell you how DVOA works (certain plays are valued more than others etc etc), but the creators of the DVOA system never give you a concrete explanation of their formula.

Ex: Is my 1yard run to get a first down in the 3rd quarter of a close game going to give me more or less points than my 1yard run with under 2minutes remaining in the 4th quarter to pick up the first down and enable my team to run the clock out?

I prefer to look at things like points scored, time of possession, turnover differential, yards etc etc

we are ranked so low on passing because our QB barely passed in the first half of the season, not an excuse a fact..... our road record is not good because we lost close games on the road in the first half of the season, when our rookie qb was handcuffed , and all we did is run the ball.... again not excuses facts.... i will suggest again, you throw out the first half numbers and concentrate on the second half numbers, because that better reflects what this team really is capable of... just a suggestion.
