Watched a segment on espn earlier. Showed several plays where upon throwing the ball RGIII is doing a slight jump and not planting his feet to throw to protect his leg. I imagine the Redskins will work on it this week but maybe if the D can bring pressure they can put him in a mechanical funk.

This game will be frustrating I believe. I have a feeling that we will be put in some unfavorable down and distances off and on through the first half and keep the game uncomfortably close. I see us pulling away in the 2nd half. I expect at least a 7 point victory so I will guess 10.

The Redskins looked off beat last week...like neither side of the ball has ever had a full practice or game together. I don't think another week of practice immediately solves that and the Packers, looking for a bounce back take the win.
I don't think it will be easy because the Redskins still have the threat of RG3. Post-surgery, he is still fast and still a playmaker. He will make mistakes if the defense pressures him and our DBs need to step it up from last week and make some plays.

Rodgers and the offense are going to go off. The one thing I can see setting the offense back is the absence of Sitton if he doesn't play.

I see the Packers winning this one 34-17.

Griffin was a lot better at the end of the Eagles game than he was at the beginning. I'm a little bit worried that will carry forward, but not much. At his best last season, Griffin didn't seem like near the runner Kaepernick is. On the other hand, he was a better passer. In addition, Alfred Morris probably is a better runner than Gore.

The big advantage for the Packers, though, is that the D they will face against the Redskins is nowhere near as good as the Niners. Considering that and Lacy apparently learning his lesson about ball security, and the Packers should have a big win.

45 - 24 if Griffin is on his game; 45 - 10 if he is like he was the first half last week.

The Washington Post has given their 5 things to watch for on Sunday:

1) QB Griffen's progress back from surgery. He did not play very much in the preseason and was rusty last week. They think if he can get the timing down with receivers he might have a big game.

2) They think Redskin strong safety will be back in the line up after a lingering groin injury. Defensive coordinator, Jim Haslett, doesn't know what to expect because he has not seen the guy play a full game.

3) RB Alfred Morris did not have a good game last week and with the Redskins behind most of the game opportunities were limited. "But it won’t be easy. The Packers last week limited Frank Gore to just 44 yards on 21 carries (2.1 ypc), and held San Francisco as a whole to 90 rushing yards."

4) "The Redskins last season ranked fifth in the league stopping the run. Teams managed just 95.8 yards a game against Washington. But Monday, the Eagles gashed the Redskins for 263 rushing yards. A solid game by Lacy will make Rodgers and the Packers only more dangerous."

5) "Left tackle Trent Williams draws a stiff challenge this week as fellow Pro Bowler Clay Matthews leads the Packers’ pass-rushing charge. Matthews last week recorded eight tackles, a sack and two more hits on the quarterback. The Packers could flip-flop him some to exploit mismatches, so right tackle Tyler Polumbus also must have a strong game. The Redskins’ interior linemen struggled to fend off Philadelphia’s pass rushers, and Griffin got sacked three times, hit another nine times. Griffin – normally never one to criticize his teammates – said of the Eagles, “They had some gaping holes to come through and get me.” Washington’s linemen must do better this week. It’s a copycat league, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Packers run some of the same blitz packages if they think they can exploit that weakness. How will the Redskins adapt?"


The Redskins have a lot more issues to deal with than the Packers. This could be a 38 to 17 game.

A couple of thoughts:

No playoff team has started the season 0-2 since 2008.

Aaron Rodgers has never beaten the Washington Redskins.

I think the Redskins start the season 0-2.

Offense moves the ball well enough and the defense keeps RGIII in check for most of the game before conceding some garbage points: 31-21.

Wilson injured? Did not read anything this week. This just a coaches decision?

Our back end is just as big of a problem as theirs. We are evenly matched there and I think this is the game the Skins pass rush gives us fits for a while. We need to run game to catch on a bit and I think it will. That is why I think the game stays uncomfortably close for a while but we will have our opportunities for big plays no doubt.
