    Skins test Colts run defense early - this drives tone of the game. Similar offensive strategy to last week with a bit more emphasis on mid to deep passing game. Wideout injuries constrain options for exercising the offense full throttle. Weather (damp field) influences options available for play-calling.

    Another run-centric effort with liberal use of play-action. Defense ups pass rush pressure to keep Luck off balance but red zone scoring remains problematic.

    Skins continue winning formula from season opener: 28-17.

    7:04 left in 3rd quarter, 3rd and 8 from the Washington 42 yard line. Kerrigan with a sack / forced fumble that's recovered by Ioannidis. At this point we're up 27-10 and the turnover sparks a TD drive, putting us up 3 scores going into the 4th quarter... putting the game out of reach.

    6 sacks, on top of multiple harassments throughout the game, thwart the best QB in football. Who has a bad knee.

    24-13 Redskins

    No winner last week. Get your 'keys' for Week 3 in people.

    Pride game Sunday. Skins take the lead early in the 4th quarter but AP fumbles late and Rodgers does what he does on the ensuing game-winning drive. Packers prevail.

    Offense sputters but better than last week.

    Jay forgets to run the ball again and we lose it in the 4th.

    31-20 packers

    This week, on a Skins drive early in the 3rd Q deep in Packers territory the refs let Clay Matthews spearing call go on a sack, Smith fumbles, Rodgers leads the Packers to 24 unanswered 2nd half points, after the Skins took a 14-10 halftime lead. 34-14 Packers

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    No deep passing game as the Skins skillfully mismanaged their WR corps over the last several years. Rogers takes the Packers to an early lead. Gruden's core strength, designing a potent passing game, cannot execute without wideout talent. Packers put the game away by the third quarter.

    This week is easy. One key and one key only:

    Do the Skins show up.

    If the team that played AZ shows up, it comes down to the vagaries of the game ... key turnover, ref's call, converted 3rd and long, etc. The usual between two NFL teams not called the Patriots on one end, the recent Browns on the other.

    If the flaccid, somnambulant, sad excuse for a professional football team that took the field again Indy shows up, most of us will have turned the game off by halftime in favor of something more fun ... like undergoing exploratory dental surgery or appliance shopping on President's Day.
