Redskins-Eagles Predictions

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 8.38.26 AM

Congrats to SiPhi and Donk Donkerson for correctly picking that the Redskins would do the Jaguars like that. Can’t say I saw it coming. Now they each get to make a guest post!

Moving on, here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for Sunday. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader is closest to the actual outcome gets to be a published author on this here weblog.

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 27-24

I don’t know why I’m doing this, other than Nick Foles has looked not good, I’m overly excited about the Skins front seven right now, and Jay Gruden has the quarterback he always wanted to run his offense.

(Also, if anyone sees someone wearing a “KC1” shirt, you’re legally obligated to punch them in the face.)

Andy Peden: Eagles, 27-17

Cousins now has a career 57.6 completion percentage with 10 TD and 10 INT. I think that probably equates to a shitty day against a real team.

Matt Terl: Eagles, 31-17

Cousins throws at least one severely damaging interception, but his fans are undeterred and launch a petition to have the waiting period waived for his enshrinement in Canton.

JP Finlay: Eagles, 30-21

Eagles are pretty good, and still haven’t fully clicked. The aqua-blue haze from the Jaguars game is hard to see out of, but the Skins front wont get to Foles like they did Henne. Cousins throws a big pick (like Terl said), Skins lose but look decent.

Jack Kogod: Eagles, 27-20

I’ll take Philly and the under.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-24

No one runs the Dalton Coast offense better than living legend Kirk Cousins. (Or, you know, Andy Dalton.)

Todd Davis: Eagles, 28-13

Nothing to see here and the Cousins/Dalton nonsense crashes immediately. And I second punching KC1 wearers.

Composite prediction: Eagles, 27-20

  1. Let’s see if I can do this 2 weeks in a row. And I’m pretty sure I already have an idea of what my post is going to focus on (Hint: You all pretty much touched upon it).

    Skins – 17
    Iggles – 30

    Our defense starts strong and we go into half tied up 17 – 13. Eagles go into half losing third straight week, get third straight win. Cousins throws 1 td and 2 picks, one of which is a Pseudo Sexy Rexy TAINT in the second half. D-Jax gets a td, but a screen pass he thinks is incomplete ends up being a fumble the Eagles recover (Just like week 1 last year).

    Win or lose, we’ll get a better sense of Cousins. (I still think he’s Sexy 2.0, but I’ll save that for my post).

  2. Overrated Cheesesteaks 24

    Somehow even more overrated Taylor Gourmet Sandwiches 13

    Redskins up 10-0 at half, Cousins throws a backbreaking pick 6 in the 3rd Quarter, and Sproles and McCoy crush us down the stretch. Cousins apologists spend monday working mental gymnastics in defense of their great white hope.

    I once spent a long weekend in Philly for a bachelor party that involved one day going to a Casino where the blackjack dealer spent the entire time complaining about how the casino had too many black patrons, followed by a trip to a strip club where the median dancer age was around 47. I feel like it was a pretty succinct description of Philadelphia as a city in miniature.

  3. Washington – 33
    Filthadelphia – 27

    They have two really good backs, but what else is making people so sure that the Eagles are a lock to win this division?? They were down 17-0 to the Jags…the Jags! Foles has looked average at best while playing the 29th and 30th ranked defenses in the league and they needed big comebacks to win both games.

    If T. Rich and Ahmad Bradshaw can gash this D, then Alf is going to torch them. Kirk Cousin’s may not be the Skins’ savior but he’s smart and a hell of a hard worker. He makes the passes when he needs to and protects the ball.

    On D, it’s Keenan Robinson’s coming out party in the NFC East.

    Let’s go boys.

  4. Eagles: 34
    Redskins: 20

    But it won’t be this close until the last few minutes when Cousins puts up some garbage time points. It’ll be similar to the beatdown Philly gave Washington a few years ago, but not quite as bad because Foles is not Vick and DeSean Jackson isn’t on the Eagles.

    Still, Philly wins with ease. Cousins looks mediocre at best.

  5. You’se guys gonna go South Street tah-night? – 30

    Mumbo Sauce – 20

    The number of taunting texts I get from my Philadelphia college friends – infinity

  6. Redskins 31, Iggles 20

    We’re not quite a hopeful enough fan base yet. We need a big win or two before infinite sadness can take effect.

  7. Washington Redskins-34
    The Philadelphia NFL Football Team-31

    We are up 31-3 at halftime and Cobra Kai nails a field goal as time expires for the win. Morris, Paul and Roberts have big games. Hall gets a stupid penalty. I drunkenly text every philly fan I know after the game to rub it in.

  8. Worst City in America: 27
    Washington Football team: 21

    We are getting better, but not there yet.

    First D-Hall dumb penalty: 5:34 left in the 1st quarter
    Weekly (when not suspended) Meriweather late hit: 1st series in the 3rd quarter.

  9. Skins 21
    Birds 35

    This one feels a lot like the Denver game last year where the skins had a lead and stopped feeding Al. I can’t trust this defense. I’ve had my heart broken too many times.

  10. Skins – 27
    Eagles – 31

    Last season we lost our first game to the Chip Kelly Eagles by 12 points, and our second game by 8 points. So by that logic we continue to improve and lose by only 4 points this week. I also look forward to the overtime tie against them later in the season.

  11. All the good scores have been taken. We find out if the defense is real or just pretending. Cousins tries to play within himself, mostly succeeds. Roberts does something good.
    DC United 3
    Chicago Fire 1

  12. Philly Threatened Species: 42
    DC Threatened People: 10

    Cousins honeymoon lasts just one week as Philly’s uptempo game gasses the front seven and gives Foles all day to pick apart the no-name secondary. Sproles rolls for two TDs, Maclin for one, McCoy for one, Ertz for one and Cousins’ pick-six rounds out a game that was over by half-time. Philly D stacks the box against FroMo and forces Cousins into some bad decisions. KC1 finishes with a very backup-like line of 24/34 for 190 with 1TD and 2 pickles.

    I hope I’m wrong since I’m all outta blog post ideas.

  13. Cousins plays within the Gruden system and Washingtons defense shows it’s for real while Foles is erratic all game.
    Redskins 27
    Eagles 17

  14. Skins 14
    Eagles 38

    Cousins supporters begin to realize last week’s blow out was a case of winning the battle, but losing the war. This team is not a contender without a healthy RGIII.
