After another tough loss, the Redskins now sit at 3-7, last in the NFC East. Things do not look like they’ll improve this season, but there is always next season(we’ve said that a few times before). If they keep up this fabulous lose streak, a top 5 pick is within reach. No fans or players like to lose, so let’s look at the Redskins Week 12 opponent Seahawks, and why the Redskins will win.
The Redskins will win because Good Rex is coming out to play. After a nice thanksgiving dinner, Rex Grossman will look to get the job done in Seattle. With the O-line looking better, Rex will have more time to find his improving receiving core. The go-to guys must run precise routs so Bad Rex won’t emerge and raise his completion percentage to other teams.
The Redskins will win because Santana Moss is back and will make plays in his return. After being side- lined for the past month, Moss will be out for revenge and will take out his anger on the Seahawks secondary. The chain moving veteran is back and the team is happier than ever, and the rest of the receivers are starting to click as well.
The Redskins will win because “Kerrakapo” is no longer on the endangered species list. After a quiet couple of games, linebackers Brian Orakapo and Ryan Kerrigan reminded Tony Romo what is was like to get hit. Look for the dynamic duo to raise hell on the Seahawks line, and contain the hot Marshawn Lynch. Also, LaRon Landry is back and he has got to be hungry for some fierce hits.
The Redskins will win because Graham Gano will not miss a beat. After missing an overtime field-goal that would have capped an upset against the Cowboys, Gano knows he has to come through against the Seahawks. Being that the Redskins like to stop trying in the red-zone, look for him to be lining up a few times. If the second year pro misses anything lower than 40 yards, he can kiss his career with the Redskins good- bye.
And finally, the Redskins will win today because 4 years ago today Sean Taylor was taken away from this team, but more importantly, he was taken away from this world. On November 27, 2007, Taylor died of gunshot wounds to his leg in a home burglary. Sean Taylor was one of the most feared safteys in league, and was considered a future “Hall of Famer”. His teammates will be thinking of him today and will fight to get the win for him.
Rest in Peace #21
