    I'm not too worried about their secondary because the simple fact is that when we spread defenses out there is no secondary that can consistently stop our passing game. And Fred Smoot? Brady beat him like a drum last year. Look for it to happen again tomorrow.

    You know what they say about "On any given Sunday".

    Aside from a Rudy Miracle of the Ages, the Skins secondary is going to get torched. The Patriots have too many guys to cover them all when Brady has time. Therefore, the only way to stop Brady is to dump him on his arse.

    Name a front four in the NFL (because blitzing doesn't work against Brady) that can bring that kind of pressure against a top 5 OL with Kyle Brady lined up next to them.

    It ain't the Redskins.

    No cover guys can cover forever.

    It's about how much time Brady has in that pocket. If he has time, he'll torch that defense.

    Aren't Smoot and Rogers all banged up? Last I saw of an injury report, they are both listed as ?probable? after missing portions of practice all week. If they are not at full speed, there's no way they can slow, nevermind stop, the Pats passing attack.

    If they have a great day they might hold Brady to 4 TDs. They might get 2.

    these are sportwriters paid to generate interest. posting the truth simply doesn't work. Imagine a truthful column:

    skins defense can' stop our offense
    skins offense cant score enough to keep up with us

    game over.

    boring but beautiful

    We are going to kill the Redskins, even though it will probably be a little bit tougher.

    Nobody can stop Moss, except his own team. I expect them to save some plays for the Colts game, but hopefully we can still have some fun on Sunday with a few deep balls.
