Shanahan: "If they don’t play hard down the stretch, they won’t be with you next year."
I believe that...and I'm not worried about it since the Skins even played hard to the end with Zorn. The Giants opened up as -7.5 favorites and the line moved to -7. That many people like the Redskins, eh?! The Giants are a top 3 offense and defense, so I'm really concerned how our lines can handle theirs. I said the same against the Titans and look how that worked out. Feel free to add any pro/cons in the comments and I'll add them in.
|Giants 26th in Turnover Ratio (-6)||Giants 3rd ranked defense|
|Giants tied for 1st with most offensive fumbles lost (14).||Giants 2nd ranked offense|
|Redskins have knocked out 3 Qbs||Giants have knocked out 5 Qbs|
|Giants rank 29th with 16 INTs||Giants have 3rd best ToP in NFL 33:08|
|Redskins still top 10 in turnover ratio (+5)||Giants #1 in NFL with 16 rushes 20+ yards|
|Redskins have upped their 3rd down % to 28%. We're no longer in last place alone!! (AZ)||Giants tied for 1st with 23 passing TDs|
|Giants rushing D given up NFL 3rd worst three runs 40+yards||Redskins rushing D given up NFL 1st worst four runs 40+yards|
|All those losses were with Zorn on the helm||NY GIANTS are 4-0 against the spread versus WASHINGTON over the last 3 seasons (all wins of course)|
|Will Montgomery is starting at RG (sorry for all you Redskins fans with Artis Hicks jerseys)||Giants tied for 3rd with Philly with passing plays 20+ (43)|
|Giants rank 28th in PR (6.3 yards) and 32nd in KR (18.3 yards avg)||Redskins are 6th and 9th. Imagine our ranking if the Lil Assassin started the season with us.|
|Center Shaun O'Hara (foot), WR Hakeem Nicks (leg), LT Shawn Andrews (back) and CB/KR Will Blackmon (chest) are listed as out.||Laron Landry and Carlos Rogers are out. Toran made the trip to NYC but is likely not playing (he didn't practice all week)|
All things considered, I like the Giants and Bears today against the spread.
ENJOY WITH ABSOLUT RESPONSIBILITY®
