Sunday's I Ching Forecast for the Skins

Redskins @ Saints -9.5

Hexagram 18: Corruption 蛊: The big story is the debut of Robert Griffin The Third, but it is more the state of the Saints that leads me to like the chances of my Redskins Sunday. The I Ching forecast paints a picture of corruption; something once great rotting away. The Saints will be fine in the long run, but I think the damage caused to their system from BountyGate to be more than just a minor speed bump. I expect this New Orleans team to be something less to the Saints squad of recent years. The chaos from the shuffling of personnel in the front office, coaching staff and lineup will not be able to be immediately settled. Furthermore, in the addition to all the suspensions this offseason, they are also installing a new defense and starting new players on the defense and offensive line. I think things like losing a head coach or an influential leader on the team (the Saints lost both) have much greater effect in a sport like football where intangibles factor so significantly into a team’s success or lack thereof. Elite quarterbacks like Drew Brees want consistency, continuity and comfort above all else in the offense around him, and thus, I think we will see a lesser version of the Saints offense, at least initially. The Redskins and RGIII will be able to move the ball and make plays against the Saints defense, and if the Washington defense can slow down Brees, Graham and crew at all, I like the Skins chances to cover the sizeable spread, if not steal a win in the Super Dome.
