Gridiron Gab NFL Week One Preview – New York Giants at Washington

It’s here. Football. And on this ten-year anniversary of that tragic day, perhaps football can uplift us.

INJURIES:

GIANTS

Out: CB Prince Amukamara (foot), LB Jonathan Goff (knee), DE Osi Umenyiora (knee)

Questionable: TE Travis Beckum (hamstring), DE Justin Tuck (foot)

REDSKINS

Out: S LaRon Landry (hamstring)

Questionable: S O.J. Atogwe (hamstring), WR Brandon Banks (knee), TE Chris Cooley (knee), WR Donte Stallworth (shoulder), RB Ryan Torain (hand)

OFFENSE:

I’m thinking that the Giants can do some damage today. Good run game and set up the play-action pass. I don’t think the lack of a tight end will hurt on Sunday. Have to watch out for Brian Orakpo. Giants will look to put a tight end on him, for blocking purposes. The Giants don’t need to do anything fancy, just no turnovers.

DEFENSE:

Well, I guess we’ll finally see what this defense is made of. The Redskins, like any Mike Shanahan team, can run the ball, and they’re going to do so often, seeing as they willingly chose Rex Grossman as their QB. The Redskins don’t really present a huge threat for the secondary, other than Chris Cooley. But, rookie Greg Jones will be tested at middle linebacker. They are going to attack him and attack him often. The Skins are going to try to isolate him. We’ll see how he responds. How he does will tell us a lot about the game.

REDSKINS:

I think the Redskins could be really, really bad.
