Redskins-Eagles: Waiting for Kickoff

It's 7 a.m. Grab some coffee and get ready to do some reading...

Barry Svrluga has spent a few weeks focusing on the relationship between Jim Zorn and Jason Campbell and wrote about it this morning.

Doug Farrar of Football Outsiders has crunched some numbers on Redskins-Eagles. Yes, it's DVOA. Yes, it's stats. But somehow, Farrar is the one sabermetrics guy I don't want to maim.

As usual, stay tuned for inactives. We'll be here and on Twitter (RedskinsInsider). You can also sign up for mobile alerts by texting "REDSKINS" to WPOST (97678).

I am worried since several folks here have said the same thing about MD and the Skins victories. Coincidence I say.

Let's hope so. If our fate is tied to the University of Maryland, then that makes us terrapin soup. 31-0?

If Ralph Fridgen can't get a win against the Virginia Yahoos, it's time to replace him with Marty Schottenheimer.

Go Skins! Biggest game of the year - hyperbole for sure but a win here and everything we've hoped for no longer looks like pie-in-the-sky kool-aid drinking. I hope they have the killer instinct and step on the throat of the Eagles. Even after last week's win no one is giving the 'skins a chance. A win today and our team then becomes the media's favorite story. The gushing of praise would make this blog way uncomfortable.

Jasno is en route to Philly, but sends this along:

Springs's calf has not responded as quickly as hoped to treatment and he is virtually certain to be out. Tryon would be up in his place.

Tryon would be up in his place.

We can count on Tryon for two picks: left nostril and right nostril. Anything more than that is gravy. Okay, maybe not gravy, but some other good thing.

One thing Tryon has going for him is that he's played Desean Jackson twice in college. Another thing is that he's about the same height as Desean. As soon as I think of the third thing, I'll be back to post it.

I made it a new post...you're right, Talent. As Jasno sez, it's smurf vs. smurfs (smurves?) ... this would be the game you'd take Springs to miss, given the size/speed matchups.

So, beep beep.

I'm just saying, in stepuppage since the offseason in terms of quality performance, talent evaluator is the blog's Carlos Rogers. Nostrils.

That said, I think Jackson belongs to Rogers or Smoot, or maybe Torrence. Springs' inactive means Tryon on special teams.

Has today's game been moved back to 4pm or not! I've heard both yes and no??
