After last weeks disappointing lose and the lose of all my self respect, by having to bow down to a Redskins fan, I am ready for this Sunday. Here are my thoughts on the game.
This game could be over before it starts, it Dawkins, Sheppard and Consadine are still banged up and unable to play the Eagles secondary will unfortunately get lit up. However if at least Dawks and Consadine play which at this time it looks like they should then that makes a huge difference. Without them the Eagles will be forced to play in an offensive shoot-out, and when you bring the slingshots to a gun fight you lose. However if this offense gets on track and plays up to their pre-season potential then a shoot-out is not that bad. If the secondary stars can play this week, look for them to get after Kitna and force him into mistakes, if this can happen it could be alon g day for the Lions.
The offense should be able to get on track and have success finally. McNabb should finally get rid of the rust and Brown will score this week.
Eagles 27 - Lions 23
