Time to give Washington a rough welcom

Time to give Washington a rough welcom

That win against the Bills was really nice but its time to look forward to Washington coming in for a visit this week.

We have lost the last two games against them after beating them in a tight game back in 2009. The last one in 2015 ended 47-14 in their favour.

They are currently 4-5 and are 13th in offence and 20th in defence while we are 2nd in offence and 8th in defence.

I think the main key will be to get to Kirk Cousins, he is their best player by far IMHO. He is currently right on pace with Brees. 208/313 (66.4%) for 2 474yds with 14TDs to 5 INTs. Brees has 215/300 (71.7%) for 2 398yds with 13TDs to 4 INTs.

The difference in rushing is bigger, Washington averages 97yds per game while the Saints rush for 142yds per game.

They have sacked the opposing QBs 22 times and have 10 INTs and 6 FRs.
The Saints have sacked the opposing QB 25 times and have 10 INTs and 11 FRs.


I couldn't find any major milestones coming up stats wise but one minor. Ingram needs 90yds rushing to reach 5 000 for his career.

With all that said, I think Cousins is a really good QB but I believe the D can shut down his targets and put pressure on him while the offence keeps hammering away on the ground. Final score 38-13.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Crusader,

It's called Victory Monday for a reason. We can afford to enjoy a win for a day before dealing with Washington.

The Saints will continue to dominate rushing the ball, which completely controls the tempo of the game. Win the turnover battle and this game won't be close.

The Meachem strip always reminds me of how cartoonishly good the 2009 Saints team was.

Funny because yesterday all I kept saying was it looks like I am watching a video game. This team could be better.

Nope! Can't truly enjoy a victory until its rookie contract is up!

Lattimore, Both Williams, and Crawley should come up with some picks. Cousins throw in that small window even if his guy covered, time to close that window

Re: Time to give Washington a rough welcom

Can't begin to tell you how much I hate, yes hate, the Redskins, the only thing I like about them is their sniveling ***** owner sticking to his guns and telling a minority of extortionist lobbyist to get bent...

Outside of the old NFC West foes, I hate the Redskins, Vikings, and Steelers with equal disdain...

Will say I like and respect Kirk Cousins for all he's been through...

And if Washington doesn't want him long term, there's you're future...
