Redskins Keys To The Game
By Guest Blogger Megan Shoup:
So how can the Redskins break their streak of playing “down” to teams that are worse than them? They have been notorious for that in the past, losing to the Lions, Rams and Chiefs the past couple seasons. I’m hoping Mike Shanahan (a real coach) is one difference, as I think he has a much more disciplined team. I think to prove to everyone that the Redskins are indeed heading in the right direction, it would actually be nice to see the Redskins win today, but win convincingly. Wouldn’t it be fun as Redskins fans to NOT be nervous the last 2 minutes of the game?!
So here are the keys to today’s game (some may be obvious)…
-Running Game – The Redskins need to get this running game going this season. The passing game will never be as good as last week if they cannot get the running attack to be effective. Hope the Shanahans open up their playbook and Portis has a succesful day. If so, McNabb too will have a good day!
-Red Zone – They’ve got to score in the Red Zone and not settle for field goals…that was obviously are problem last week.
-Pressure on Bradford – We need to take advantage playing a young quarterback and get pressure on him. I think if we sack him a couple times and pressure him, he’ll throw an interception or two!
-Secondary – They looked awful last week, so hopefully they are angry and have something to prove this week. Hopefully the don’t make the Rams offense look like Pro Bowlers.
Hopefully by tonight we will be a convincing 2-1 team! HTTR!
