After last Sunday's heart breaker I'm just not emotionally ready to invest in this game.
I'll maybe start thinking about it on Sunday morning.
I may not even watch it as ruffed grouse season opens on the 15th and my Wire Haired Pointing Griffon named Troy is ready to go.

Plus I bought a new shotgun that I need to warm up.

The more I think about it, I think I'll just read about it on Packers Home.

It was obvious how rusty Griffin looked on the field last night. Bad mechanics and definitely not fully conditioned yet. So I imagine his play will only improve for this game. With that said, I don't believe Griffin is as good as Kaepernick was this last week and with less weapons across the board. I liked everything I saw from our defense against a running QB except the safety play.

Unlike you yooper, I am not heart broke from the Niners game, I am encouraged and felt about as good as I ever could after watching the Packers lose a game.

Packers: Lots and lots of points. 46 sounds like a good number.
Redskins: Not many points at all. 6, yeah, 6 sounds good.

Nothing against the Baylor kid. I just think Shanahan's the most over-rated coach west of Pete Carroll.

6 sacks (CMIII, CMIII, Jolly, Jolly/Neal, Raji/CMIII, DJones), 3 INTs (Williams, Francois, Francois), 2 fumble recoveries (Jolly, Pickett) by the defense.

Rodgers 27-29, 4 TDs (Jones, Jones, Jones, Lacy), 333 yards.
Shocking the world, zero sacks.

Ross (if he gets a return opp): return TD.
Safety: Jolly.
FGs (Crosby, 3-3): 32, 66 (ending first half after an interception), 49.

Do you guys think the overall defensive gameplan will vary much from the 49ers? I saw it as nearly 100% containment on the QB with a focus on stopping the run. Does Washington lend itself to the same sort of plan?

Ordinarily against RG3, sure. But he didn't look like the same player last night. The Eagles blitzed him like crazy and had great success. He simply didn't look as fast, and not as effective as Kaepernick. As a result, I don't see any way the Packers don't win this game. The Redskins might make a run late, but fortunately, it will be too late.

While I think RG3 has the scrambling ability, I don't think it is much of the Skins gameplan anymore to protect that knee.

I think the Packers D still keep that containment in mind but have a lot more wiggle room this week compared to last week.

And as a result, I expect to see more pass rush. Pass rush was not the Packers #1 goal against the 49'ers last week. Containment was. They hoped they could contain and get some pass rush, but that could have worked out better.

Agreeing with the trend: similar defensive plan like last week with a little more emphasis on the pass rush. Partially because we saw what happens when the defense just sits back, partially because they'll want him to test him and how healthy his knee is. Was half-watching the game last night and he really wasn't moving around much.

Keys to the game

Defense: Just get after RGIII. Blitz the shit out of him and he will make mistakes. That's what the Eagles did. Not worried about Morris after our week 1 performance. Me thinks we'll make the adjustments to play their recievers better than against Bolden, and challenge them at the line of scrimmage.

Offense: Just let Rodger do what he does best and play the offense fast. Keep their defense on their toes. Their defense is pretty good too, but as seen, they can be beat with a fast moving offense. I think we can expose their corners. We need to keep Lacy going too. I hope he continues to be our third down back. First 100 rushing game for him? That would be just awesome.

38-10 Packers Win.

Redskins/Packers Dope sheet is out.

Some material:

DopeSheet wrote:

•The NFL championship game in 1936 was the first for both clubs, and the Packers beat the Redskins, 21-6, at the Polo Grounds in New York City.
•The game was played there because Redskins owner George Preston Marshall, upset with his fans’ lack of support, was moving his team to Washington and didn’t want to host the championship in Boston.
•In front of 29,545, Don Hutson caught a 48-yard touchdown pass from Arnie Herber in the first three minutes, and Green Bay never trailed. It was the first NFL title contest won by the Packers under coach Curly Lambeau, after winning league championships awarded by league standing in 1929, 1930 and 1931.
•The teams met in one of the more memorable regular-season games in Packers history on Monday Night Football on Oct. 17, 1983. Facing the defending Super Bowl champions, Green Bay won, 48-47, in a game that is still the highest-scoring contest ever on MNF as well as in Packers history. Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy started at free safety for the Redskins in that game.

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.
