On this week’s Hogs Night: A Porkcast, we have a breakdown of the Redskins week 1 match-up against the Eagles with a short shift of Bryan From HH, Nedbot Neal, and Dr. Chris. While Washington has an embarrassment of riches in the run game with a backfield seemingly over-flowing with talent, somehow they still found a way to be embarrassed by mismanagement, typified by the decision to sit Adrian Peterson altogether in favor of an exclusive early-down workload for Derrius Guice.
In addition, the defense was supposed to be the strong suit this season, as we predicted out of the gate they could be a top 10 unit this year, but so far they haven’t met those expectations. We have some thoughts and where the weak spots are, and if this is a blip or more of a cause for concern.
We give out game balls for valiant performances in a losing effort, with some strong performances by rookies Cole Holcomb and “Scary” Terry McLaurin, as well as a heroic performance by “Old Man” Vernon Davis that made us Feel the Vern.
Finally, we close things out with what the Redskins will need to do to beat the Cowboys (sorry, we record on Thursdays...) and even though we now know the outcome, we weren’t too far off the mark!
