1. Establishing the Run Game- The Redskins have to keep that explosive Cowboys offense off the field. You do that by running the ball and controlling the clock. Don't give the son of bitches time to run their stuff! They did that against Arizona and as a result, the Cards never had consistency in their offense. The Boys run defense has been excellent the first two weeks(59.5 yds/gm) so the offensive line has to be on their A game.
2. Blitz- I love that word. It makes me very happy. This is what the Skins need to do and do well. Romo is hurting and the Redskins have to come after this cat. Make him feel some heat. Hall said he would like to get some big hits in on Romo. I hope Haslett obliges him and draws up some exotic blitz packages for the defense. The Boys running game is not strong so expect a pass happy attack. They look to be depleted at WR with Austin out and Bryant hurt, so i think single coverage is doable. The Skins need to take chances and be aggressive against this team. Bend but don't break is too bland for me. I want some pressure on them boys. I want it.
3. Turnovers- Huge. If the Skins had not had those two picks last week. They could have won by more. One Grossman pick stop a potential scoring drive and another pick led to a scoring drive by Arizona(second pick that was not his fault) The Skins have forced 3 turnovers this year. 2 of them were big. There was Kerrigan's pick 6 and then Westbrook forced fumble that ended the Cards last drive. That's the key. Take care of the ball on O and take it away on D. Its a simple concept but it needs to be done every week and the Skins have had trouble with that in recent years. How many game had we seen the Skins lose because of losing the turnover battle? Too many.
4. Red Zone Scoring- When the Skins get in the redzone. They better get 6. This has been a problem for years. The Skins have had a rough time scoring points because they keep settling for field goals. The Skins have never had trouble marching the ball down the field. We have seem them have long drives where everything is clicking. Then they get inside the 20 and we get holding penalties, false start penalties and even worse, weird playcalling. Its crap. The Skins have let so many teams off the hook because they can't finish drives. The Skins can move the ball against any team in this league. They need to have laser like focus when they get down there. The Skins can beat Dallas if they do these things well.
The media ain't giving us a shot. Screw them. I bet you if the Skins win, those bums will jump on our bandwagon so quick they wagon will tip over. HTTR!
