You are way too easy Nors. I actually agree with you despite my earlier comment, but one player warms my heart when I think about this game...
The Skins faced the lesser of the Jones brothers last week, and the Bears running backs got a total of 40 yards rushing.
I am not saying that Julius Jones will have a field day. What I'm saying is that we will run the ball over and over again, even if it means 2 yard gains and 3 and outs early in the game. This is how you stop a team that will blitz relentlessly. An aggressive defense tends to overpursue from time to time, and if you stick with the run, you can eventually break away some big ones when the defense overpursues.
Also, this takes a lot of pressure off of Bledsoe.
On the flip side, the Redskins receivers are a bit scary, but I feel better with Henry in the secondary as opposed to the revolving door we had there last year.
We put 8 and sometimes 9 in the box to stop LT last week, and we let Brees find his WRs once in awhile. The game plan this week will be similar, but I feel that Brees>>>>>Brunell.
