    B Redskins Recon - The Eagles: Landing on the wrong wire?

    Maybe the Eagles fans were in a state of shock after that unexpected loss to the Lions but there wasn't anywhere near the amount of chatter about the upcoming game with the Skins as I had thought-or hoped.

    Be that as it may, there was some, mostly fairly confident, but, as I have seen on other boards, a fair amount of wariness about playing a suddenly streaking Redskins team.






    Dreagon

    Calling it now, it won't be that close. Coming off a surprise loss in Detroit, the Eagles will hammer out a 31 - 24 win that only looks that tight because of a garbage time touchdown and field goal.





    Rick

    Eagles-Skins games are almost ALWAYS close





    OhBaldi

    My gut tells me we are better at QB and on Defese than Washington but they seem to have our number. Jaccpot loves killing the Eagles. If they can stop crowder and their backs on screen type passes and hit Cousins we win the game





    Smfd6310

    Redskins defense is horrible, keep 3rd downs manageable and they should be able to move the ball all day. Theyve got a lot of weapons on offense, they're definitely gonna score. Gotta make Cousins screw up a couple throws with pressure. I like the Eagles in this one





    Maxx

    No more of Billy Davis making Cousins look like Montana. I have confidence in Schwartz and the defense. This should be a easy win. After we get to harass Sam and give the Vikings their 1st loss.





    Anguis

    Cousins can't beat teams with winning records. Eagles win. Their defense is garbage, too. 3-4 TDs by Wentz.





    OhBaldi

    The Ravens have a winning record but you're right






    Anguis

    Oh I forgot they beat the Ravens. Well then, point is he doesn't do well under pressure and against solid teams for the most part. Poor track record.





    Hextall4SC

    This game will be decided by the ability of our defense to control Cousins and the Redskins passing attack. Between Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, DeSean Jackson, Jamison Crowder, and Pierre Garcon that is a lot of weapons. Cousins has destroyed us in the past.





    Captain Obvious

    Don't give him time to throw the ball. Especially to Jackson downfield.





    nc

    No idea what to expect from this game, Skins have explosive playmakers on O , Schwartz needs to be on.





    BelgianFlyer

    Between Bradham and Jenkins, I think the Eagles can prevent Reed from going off. Garcon worries me because he always hurts the Eagles and Carroll (who I assume will cover him most of the game) hasn't been very good this year.







    MacGyver1

    Hi, the Skins are an up and down team. I bet they have a bad game this week.





    MightyJNC

    Isn't reed out with a concussion too?






    NIBGoldenchild

    That's what I've heard. And he self-reported. So it was missed during the game Sunday. He probably won't finish the protocol before this Sunday.*



    This last, and longest post was the most thorough game related analysis I ran across.




    THE BEAST

    1) We need a plan for covering TE Jordan Reed. (NOTE: Reed experienced concussion symptoms this week during practice, and as of now there is no word on whether or not he will suit up Sunday. If he does play, we need to be ready.) I

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    Yep, a little more confident than usual. But the important voice belongs to EDP - wonder what he thinks, lol.

    ...Protect the rookie. Rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai, will be starting at RT... Knock - Knock, Ryan Kerrigan calling!

    Can't argue a whole lot with the majority. There's always a few meatballs (except Redskin fans). I wouldn't think a high scoring game but I also thought Thursday would have been. Maybe they blinded themselves in those uni's.

    Defense, TO's & penalties for Sunday. Philly actually averages more penalties than Washington. Philly is #3 at stopping the run - Ravens are #4. Redskins won that game but they did get stuffed. eGals secondary, #6 in fewest yards given up (Ravens #5), and eagles #5 in sacks. Redskins are #7 in passing yards and 5th fewest sacks. I suspect Jay is going to air it out a lot.

    DJax definitely like eGal breakfast...lunch...dinner...dessert...Plus Kirk owes him a few after the last couple of weeks.

    Didn't see it mentioned (may have missed) - Ertz over the middle. Skins don't have the best of coverage in that 'Reed' space. Breeland looks like he might be back so maybe they can get a little creative with players to cover that soft spot.

    Now that they are starting to put guys in their positions, Redskins defense is better than most think and pass rush should get through at times. Although at stopping the run they are still squeamish. Philly #10 in yards per game rushing. Long day in the trenches guys.

    No Reed, no Cravens, no chance. Cousins has trouble throwing a TD WITH Reed playing, and this week he'll have no chance. Expect it to be FG city. Hopkins will need to set an NFL record if the 'Skins are to win.

    Wentz will, time and time again, hand the ball off to Sproles, and to a lesser extent, Matthews, as everyone knows the Redskins don't have a run defence. Expect an NFL record or two coming for the Eagles.

    We win.
    Niles Paul is the new Jordan Reed.
    And Mason Foster is the old Sua Cravens, still.

    So who is the new London Fletcher, Phillip Daniels, or Cornelius Griffin?

    Our defense has looked like the 87 Broncos defense vs the hogs and Timmy Smith.

    The current team is better than any of the Redskin teams that any of those guys played for.

    And just substitute Vernon Davis there.
    Paul hasn't received much, but he's made some key blocks.
