Tom [Giants fan] Posted November 2, 2005 Share Posted November 2, 2005 With the Eagles ineptitude running the football making them one dimensional, I feel this plays right into the hands of the Redskins defense. If the Eagles cannot run the ball here, the Redskins will be able to blitz or lay back and cause turnovers. I think they will mix up both strategies. McNabb doesn't look like the same QB from the past several years. He has his moments but he looks like he can be rattled a bit easier than I remember. The Skins need to cover Westbrook on passing plays. That is where he can hurt them. And Owens needs to be double teamed as I don't think Philly has anyone else who can hurt the Skins. The Eagle defense has looked very vulnerable with the exception of the SD game. Brunell needs to make smart decisions. Portis could be a big factor in this game but it seems like the Redskins either don't know how to use them or he doesn't fit their scheme. I know you guys probably knew all of this but I am pulling very hard for the Redskins to win. There are two reasons for this: 1. I just cannot stand the Eagles and the lower they fall, the better I feel. 2. I am part of a bet where the fans of each team in the NFC East took their team and we put a hundred dollars each in. The guys team who wins the division takes away the 400 buck. This bet was initiated before the season by a ****y Eagles fan who thought this bet was a lock. If the Giants can't win the East, I certainly don't want the Eagles winning it. I want this guy to have to send someone a check.
