There's No Debate -- Let's Vote

Got the itch to vote and can't wait till Nov. 4 (on the Skinsonian calendar, that's the day after the Redskins play the Steelers on "Monday Night Football")? We can help you.

If you can't see the polls above, try these links:

Redskins vs. Eagles

Campbell vs. McNabb

Or, you could go to your local DMV and try to get your personalized plate on the Bog.

Locker room opens at noon; practice and Zorn availability follow. Weather forecast for Philly this weekend looks fabulous.

The skins MNF curse was broken last election. Granted the last 2 elections were riged but regardless.

Yeah the election curse is dead.....

McNabb more yards is a good thing for Skins victory, thats why I voted skins win/mcnabb more yards!

I have always been ambivelent and grateful for Mike Florio's PFT blog....but is it me or lately do his actual opinions on things just seed dim, wacky and stupid?

Only in the great state of VA you can get cool tags like those that are linked in that post by Cindy.

I'm now in my week of loathe. I've said it before and i'll say it again; the team I dislike the most is the Eagles. Don't know why, but I do. Maybe it's because all the undeserved hype that the Eagles get.

A lot of ballers come from the DMV (region type). The Eagles backfield is from the DMV. Westbrook is from Ft. Washington and I went to school with Tony Hunt.

Alex, how is Sean Considine someone that can be exposed? I think of him as a middle-class Reed Doughty.

lets start a random election year curse based on the Nationals. If they lose their last game of the season then the VP of the US ends up using too many folksy sayings and gets on peoples nerves.

Slow morning at work.
Here's the results from the last 15 years of Skins vs Eagles:

11/11/07 Eagles 33 - Redskins 25 (and we literally let them score the last TD)
9/17/07 Redskins 20 - Eagles 12
12/10/06 Eagles 21 - Redskins 19
11/12/06 Eagles 27 - Redskins 3
1/1/06 Redskins 31-Eagles 20 (Mcnabb did not play)
11/6/05 redskins 17 - Eagles 10
12/12/04 Eagles 17 - Redskins 14
11/21/04 Eagles 28 - Redskins 6
12/27/03 Eagles 31-Redskins 7
10/5/03 Eagles 27 - Redskins 25
12/15/02 Eagles 34 - Redskins 21
9/16/02 Eagles 37 - Redskins 7
12/16/01 Eagles 20 - Redskins 6
11/25/01 Redskins 13 - Eagles 3
11/26/00 Eagles 23 - Redskins 20
10/8/00 Redskins 17 - eagles 14
11/28/99 Redskins 20 -Eagles 17 (OT)
11/14/99 Eagles 35 - Redskins 28
11/15/98 Redskins 28 - Eagles 3
10/11/98 Eagles 17 - Redskins 12
12/21/97 Redskins 35- Eagles 32
10/5/97 Eagles 24 - Redskins 10
11/17/96 - Redskins 26 - Eagles 21
9/1/96 Eagles 17 - Redskins 14
11/26/95 Eagles 14 - Redskins 7
10/8/95 Eagles 37 - Redskins 34 (OT)
10/30/94 Eagles 31 - Redskins 29
10/9/94 Eagles 21 - Redskins 17
11/28/93 Eagles 17 - Redskins 14
9/19/93 Eagles 34 - Redskins 31

Some notes. ALWAYS a tough game, no matter who the "better" team is that year. Skins have only won 9 out of the last 30. Ouch. 13 out of the last 30 games decided by 3 points or less. 18 by 7 or less. Skins have only swept once in the past 15 years (2005 season and Mcnabb didn't play in the 2nd game). Last time before the 05 season was 1988. Ouch. I just hope the players don't get cocky this week and realize it is a division game against a team that is somewhat desperate and very well coached. We'll see some of Zorn's mettle this week, I hope. Skins need to play their butts off because odds are against us beating the eagles twice in the same year.
Hopefully we can throw all this stuff out the window, though, cuz it's a new year with a new coach. We have a healthy team that is really starting to gel and get confident. Hail Victory!

Red didn't u answer your question there? I just think the SS spot is the weak point in their secondary.

Dawkins is not that good in coverage anymore, he can still lay the lumber though.

Posted by: Flounder21 | October 2, 2008 10:25 AM | Report abuse

By the way, ref my statement yesterday about CP losing a step. The Times ran an article today about CP's inability to break the big play lending more credence to the speculation that my Football IQ is goose egg point goose egg.

I just wished the Eagles had pulled out their game last week. Losing to the Redskins at home and going 2-3 will be a huge blow to their post-season chances, given how good all teams in this division seem to be. On the other hand, the Redskins can lose, still be 3-2 (better than almost anyone thought they would be at that point in the season), and still have won 1 game away in the division. So, this game should mean a lot more to the eagles than to the Redskins. So even though I hope for a Redskins win, I have this nagging doubt about this game.

Havent seen this in a while its well overdue for McKnee injury.

Alex, how is Sean Considine someone that can be exposed? I think of him as a middle-class Reed Doughty.

Considine isnt really there main starter at SS they have a rookie Quintin McKell he has seen a lot more time. Hes a rookie but hes very good he ranks in the top 20 in tackles in the league so far. Dawkins has def lost a step in coverage but he still plays smart and can get where he need to be through anticipation, def still a run stop threat. But your right about Concidine hes a scrub.

What a bunch of homers we are, 80% of us picking the Skins :)

Posted by: NateinthePDX | October 2, 2008 10:36 AM | Report abuse

skinz, i'm with you on that one too. dude, seriously i could just not post here cuz you always post what i'm thinking. CP has definitely lost a step. he looked more like jamal lewis these days than CP of old. one play in particular where he was at full speed and was breaking away and needed to put it in extra gear and couldn't and got tripped up and caught from behind...

not hatin...just saying he's a tad slower...

Posted by: dealer1 | October 2, 2008 10:36 AM | Report abuse

Dawkins is still a major threat on the blitz. That's really all Philly has (that's really all they've ever had). Of course, that statement isn't meant to undermine what they can do, because when they bring the blitz, that is a scary moment for the offensive line. When picked up, however, they'll leave Santana Moss 1 vs 1 in the secondary. And I'll take Santana Moss 1 vs 1 against any defensive player in the league, any day of the week.

One interesting tidbit, Scouts Inc. just did the position by position matchup and the one surprising advantage they gave Washington: coaching. Zorn has really impressed. Well done.

beep comes the post that was promised by cindy

I am more nervous for Philly than I was for Dallas, just because SUDDENLY the town is excited, the players are pumped, talk radio and ESPN are propping us up. If we don't blow this one, we are a legitimate team. Let's do it, baby.

In order to really understand what Sarah Palin's really meant, I am waiting for Saturday Night Life, where Tina Fay will translate for us.
-Otherwise, as far as I'm correct, Biden won.
