Redskins defense was among the leaders last year and got a bit stronger with one notable weakness... the secondary. The front 7 is very very strong with a lot of depth. Expect to see a lot of Kerrigan and Orakpo hits on the Brees.

But fortunately for you guys, the secondary will give up a lot of big plays unless the pressure is too much for the OL.

As a 26 year old Redskins fan I am thrilled to finally hear somebody say they are afraid of something our QB might do. I was too young for the glory days and was 5 when they won the Big Game the last time. Yay!

And why was that? G.W. thought more blitzes would rattle the rookie... Spags will have him confused without blitzes 90% of the time, at least that's what I'm hoping...

Re: Week 1: Redskins-Saints matchup

This is going to be like Playing the Eagles/Vick... We are going to have to contain RGIII.

IMO we need to make a statement... besides just a 40 burger. We need to pull out all the stops, full play book, take risks, 3 passing TDs and 3 rushing YTDs... Squib the 1/2 time kick off... Play line Sean is on the sidelines.

That is the only way we will shut the planet up and make people recognize we are the Saints.. and the favorite to take the SB.

Re: Week 1: Redskins-Saints matchup

The Skins have a very good Front 7. Hopefully Carmichael gives our tackles a lot of chip help. Remember all Brees needs is a couple of seconds to get the ball out of his hands but the O-line STILL needs to keep him upright at all times even after he gets the ball out of his hands because with these replacement refs.....I'm really thinking there are going to be liberties taken by the pass rushers when it comes to late hits on the QB. Their going to test these scab refs something fierce. I say Max protect at all times.

I like RG3....but his first game...as a rookie....in the Dome...with what this team and the Who Dat Nation has been thru....uphill battle to say the least. He won't regain his hearing until a week after the game this sunday.

To be fair, they basically did not give him anything beyond base packages and vanilla routes.

Shanny worked hard on incorporating Griffs skills into a lot of new looks, formations, and plays, none of which were seen in preseason.

Re: Week 1: Redskins-Saints matchup

I'm hoping the Zone look we give them causes RGIII to take longer than he wants on his reads, allowing us to get to him

The thing that makes me nervous is that if he takes longer in his reads he may have to start making sh*t up, and the dude is freakishly athletic and has WAY more open field speed than we (or just about anybody else) can deal with

Definitely, what does the Saints front 7 look like? Skins OL is pretty thin...
