Head Coach Jay Gruden has the difficult task of game planning for Seattle as he did game planning versus the Cowboys with all the many injuries to starters on both sides of the ball. The offensive line that played against the Dallas Cowboys did a remarkable job considering it had two rookies starting in their very first NFL regular season game. Since 6’6″ tall and 325 lbs. Tyler Catalina can play any guard or tackle position, he should be one of the starters against Seattle.
Left guard Shawn Lauvao was the only one of the regular five starters on the offensive line who was uninjured prior to the Dallas game, but he suffered a hand injury. Right tackle Morgan Moses was replaced after being re-injured in the Dallas game. Rookies Chase Roullier and Tyler Catalina will have to “get-r-done” in their positions. Again, the Redskins will play Seattle and be missing those injured players, but it’s “next man up” in the NFL. We do not have “backup players.” We have “starters in waiting” and the waiting time is over for some players. We do need a good kickoff and punt returner.
Seattle has the regular season record of 5 wins and only 2 losses. In Week 2, the Seahawks barely got by the San Francisco 49ers 12 to 9. They only beat the Rams by 6 points and beat the Texans by 3 points. Point is, the Seattle Seahawks are not the ’85 Bears. The Washington Redskins have injuries on defense but are still capable of pressuring Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and sacking him. To win in Seattle, the Redskins defense will have to pressure Wilson all game long and create turnovers.
Our offense will have to include all our weapons, and they must run the ball effectively to have balance and to achieve long, time-consuming scoring drives. The Seahawks defense gave up 38 points to the Texans, so I expect our offense to be able to pass and run on Seattle. I predict the Washington Redskins will upset the favored Seattle Seahawks in their loud house and meet the halfway point of the season with a record of 4 wins and 4 losses. We can defeat the New York Giants twice and beat the Dallas Cowboys next time and have a 3 wins, 3 losses record in the NFC East Division. I can see the Eagles and Cowboys losing 3 division games. Now is the time to keep the faith and stand by our team! Our Redskins need the 12th man! Hail to the Redskins!
