he may prove me wrong, but normally runners that rely so much on cutback ability dont fare as well on sloppy turf.....Washington (so far) hasnt shown any ability to throw the ball at all, hence making Zimmer's job pretty simple---stop Portis....there should be 8 and 9 men in the box all night until the Skins show they can throw downfield, something they havent shown with Brunell at all so far...
our offense on the other hand has shown inate ability to throw...we can throw short, intermediate and long...we have good WR's (3) and good TE's as well as backs who can catch...Washington no matter whether it rains or not has more to game plan for than we do....
