And the 'Skins Preview...

A little late, but here's the 'Skins preview courtesy of Jim

Note to Redskins fans: Unlike most of you, I do not think the Redskins will win every game. If I predict a win, it’s because I actually think they will win – not because of some tingly feeling that I get in my pants when I see burgundy and/or gold. Now to the prediction...

Detroit (+3.5) at Washington (-3.5)
The ‘Skins should be 3-0 after being up 17-3 at halftime against the Giants in week 3. If Gibbs and Al Saunders and their countless other offensive coaches]want to help Washington become a contender this year, they need to figure out how to sustain an offensive drive while they have a lead. They have too many offensive weapons to let go to waste.

So after a bye, the 2-1 Redskins host the 3-1 Lions. In a conference where mediocrity seems to be the norm, this will be a statement game for the victorious squad. The Redskins D will have its hands full with Detroit and its talented WR core. QB Jon Kitna will want to spread the ball around and Washington’s D-coordinator Gregg Williams will want to pressure him all day. Washington’s defense is ranked 13th overall in the NFL (in total yards allowed per game). Detroit’s D is ranked 29th and a putrid 30th against the pass. I predict the ‘Skins secondary holds up well, free safety Sean Taylor brings massive pain to a Lions WR and Jason Campbell helps the Redskins post their highest point total of the season. Final Score: ‘Skins 27 – Lions 17.
