Why the Skins Will Win Tomorrow

Giants @ Redskins +3

Yes, I’m a homer. I’m such a big ‘skins homer, people call me Homer Skins-son. But there’s a lot about the Giants not too like: Lots of devastating injuries on the defensive side of the ball, turnover on the offensive line, and just Eli Manning in general. I expect the Giants to try to pound the ball to take the pressure off their O-line and defense, so the key to the Redskins success is stopping the run, first and foremost. I like their chances do just that despite Landry being unavaible. And I thought this was the year Reed Doughty wouldn't start a game; a pipe dream from the beginning.

Redskins survived preseason healthy for the most part, and seem focused and sharp in the preseason. Although this counts for nothing once 4:15 on Sunday rolls around, I think this is a better team top to bottom than we have seen in some time. They might lack some of the raw talent previous years' teams had, but they seem like a more cohesive and focused unit. This is encouraging as much of the past decade has been spent trying to adapt around big talent that usually came with big egos and personalities.  This is a team game after all and I think less importance on the past has been placed on this. However, this year I am excited about the direction this team is headed, and the G-Men seem to be a mess. To me, with my burgundy and gold colored vision, taking them as the home underdog is a no-brainer. and if I’m wrong, I’ll be in a bad mood all next week, SO DON’T FUCK WITH ME!
