There are only so many hours in a day and having started earlier should help. What will be interesting is the offensive adjustments made simply from playing a team that is so familiar with the pistol an read options. It may be a homer opinion but I think our advantage will be RW delivering the deep ball. On the other hand I think redskins bubble screens are going to move the chains in several third downs and it will be annoying as heck.
Final thought - haven't seen the ladderal pass to a wideout in awhile and hope we don't see it again
Enjoy the game everyone go hawks
The WR screen passes are something I've been somewhat expecting to reappear in the playoffs. It's like as soon as they actually started working we went away from them. I'm sure part of it is teams adjusting for it, but I don't know it might just play a big part tomorrow. Of course if we throw an actual lateral I'm gonna smack someone. Those were the worst. Just throw the damn ball forward.
One thing I know is we need to tackle better than in the Rams game. If we can limit YAC and contain Morris for the most part we'll be looking pretty good.
