The Redskins are coming off a lucky win against the Eagles and the Packers off a win against the Lions (by 2 points). The Redskins’ D seemed to have improved but the stats don’t reflect it (overall still #31, passing #31, rushing #12), which doesn’t help much when the Packer’s Passing Offense is #14 (right behind the Redskins) and Rushing #22 (Redskins sit at 19). Corners and Safeties have to step up and where are the sacks? The time for Orakpo is now! According the redskins.com, rookie LT Trent Williams is projected to start. This is great news.
With RB Clinton Portis out for 4-6 weeks, the Redskins will need to rely on Ryan Torain. Torain racked up 70 yards last week and a TD and he will be key to this Redskins’ offense. I’m sure all fans will be riding the Gravy “Torain.” And why so little Cooley lately? Give the boy the ball!
The Redskins take the field at FedEx at 1PM on Sunday. Hail to the Redskins.

About the Author
Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
