When: Sunday, September 29th  1:00 p.m.

Where: Met Life Stadium New York

 

This Sunday the Washington Redskins travel to New York for a divisional battle against the New York Giants, in a game that could be considered a 'must win' for some.

Divisional games used to be unpredictable, 1-6 team beating a 6-1 team, but it appears that those days have waved 'bye-bye' to the Redskins, as they continue struggling to get that first win of the 2019 regular season.

 

The Giants come off a win against a gamy Tampa Bay buccaneers team, squeaking by 32-31 in the last couple of minutes in the game.

Their heir-apparent QB Daniel Jones, voted offensive player of the week, started off slow, eventually settled down, and in the 2nd qtr began moving the ball, and it took a last minute drive to score the go-ahead TD to take the lead with little time left.

 

The Giants defense likes to play aggressive, but they are vulnerable. They have a front 4 that likes to bull rush, so this could be another recipe for disaster coming.

 

On Monday night, in front of a nation-wide crowd, the Redskins were simply out-played, out-coached, out-hustled and out-smarted, as the Chicago Bears, led by Mitch Trubisky, looked like Joe Montana against a Redskins defense that appeared to not know what to expect. This proved to be the case.

Once again, Josh Norman was exposed, and now most fans question his abilities and desire to play at an NFL level. Once is an accident, 2 is a trend, but now its way past 3, and it appears that the Redskins defensive coach is about as lost as the defense he's been putting on the field.  The defense was supposed to be the strong point of this team, but that theory has been thrown out the window.

 

Offensively, everyone knew that the Redskins would struggle, but still had hopes that they could do enough to get and maintain a lead, even a small one, and squeak out a win at home, but that just wasn't the case. Case Keenum turned into jelly, as the Bears defense spread him out all over the field like jelly on toast. Questionable and downright WTF moments littered the viewers, as ball protection appeared to be a newly lost art.

Before fans were ready for another beer, it was already out of reach, and in the 3rd qtr the Bears defense just pinned their ears back and came after him, but that did cost the Bears a couple of scores, one in the 3rd and one in the 4th, but too little too late.

 

This Sunday could very well spell the end of some coaches if a similar product is put on the field. This is a divisional game, but so were the Cowboys and Eagles, and those turned out bad also.

Will Case be healed enough to play? Will his injury hamper the offense even more or will Haskins see some time, possibly McCoy?

At this point I doubt it will matter, because the air is out of this team; they are a deflated bunch of guys, not knowing the answer, and playing on the road, against a team that has been a thorn in the Redskins side every time the Redskins needed a win.

 

When the dust settles,  this could very well be Jay Gruden and Greg Manusky's last game as coaches for the Redskins. Could a last hurrah be in the cards?

Simply put, no.

Redskins  22

Giants 34

 

First correct score prediction wins a new Redskins cap, beanie or embroidered golf towel { can be used as a crying towel also }.

 

Good luck and as always,   G  O    R  E  D  S  K  I  N  S !!

 I know I'm a day or 2 late, but I wanted to give everyone a chance to cool down, including myself !

Redskins right the ship as well as could be.  Daniel Jones impresses.  Giants D gives up a big play or two.  Noise for Haskins to start gets louder.  

 

Redskins - 16

Giants -27

Giants complete 115% of 3rd down conversions, including a 3rd & 99. Redskins score more than this past Monday:

 

Giants - 35

Redskins - 24

Eagles play Packers

Cowboys play Saints

We get a chance to... ah, forget it.

We should win, and we might be ahead at some point, but Jones and the Giants will do the same to us as they did with the Bucs.

 

Skins - 24

Giants - 28

Sims will be our leading rusher, with 4 jet sweeps for 11 yards. The Giants' D stinks, against the run and the pass. We'll find a way to make them look like the '85 Bears, just like our DC made Trubisky.......Trubisky!.........look like a solid NFL QB.

 

Most impressive players for the Skins will again be McLaurin and Way.

Again, I can't believe anyone would pick the Redskins to score over 20-21 points!  

 

I really hope I am wrong on this one.

If we lose, please let it be by 40 rather than 4. Unless Haskins is starting. If Colt ends up starting I hope we lose by 60.

Sorry, Mr. Jones...I know, I cheered you on last year, but I've gotta hate you now. :806:

EDIT:

 

It took all of two seconds for someone to get offended by a movie clip, so I took it down.

I'm not convinced Giants have enough to lit us on fire in second half with Barkley out,  but I'm still terrified of Case throwing up on himself again.

 

This is a must win game for Jay, theres every reason in the world to think he will get desperate here and not try to nurse a 3 point lead.  If he does anyway, has to be final straw

The Redskins defense allows 30 points per game.  Anyone picking otherwise, please convince why?  

 

Giants - 31

redskins - 20

 

it will be 31-14 and we score late to make it look better, Hopkins, will miss extra point. 

 

as mentioned earlier in this thread, Giants convert 150% of third downs because Manusky does not blitz.  What a sad state for this once storied franchise.

Manusky will make the Rookie look like TB12.
