Last week, it was former Redskins lineman Mark Schlereth that alone selected the Redskins among respected NFL analysts. This week, Stink chose the Jets.
However, one ESPN analyst was bold enough to choose Washington, and that man was Merril Hoge. The part that’s interesting, is that he’s not alone.
In the weekly ESPN Madden ’12 simulation, the Redskins down the Jets 12-10 off the magical foot of virtual kicker Graham Gano. Here’s the skinny:
If you thought the Jets offense struggled earlier this year, just wait until you see what the “Madden” simulation predicts against the Redskins as Washington boots four field goals — and that’s it, but it’s still enough to topple New York. That’s right, the Jets offense looks terrible against the Redskins for four quarters, turning the ball over in key situations and just never getting on track in the two-point loss. I wonder how many “Madden” gamers have already traded Sanchez in franchise mode?
And here are your stat leaders for the day:
Passing TEAM C/ATT YDS TD INT M. Sanchez NYJ 16/29 215 1 1 R. Grossman WAS 17/30 212 0 1
Rushing TEAM CAR YDS TD LG S. Greene NYJ 19 72 0 12 R. Helu WAS 21 92 0 20
Receiving TEAM CAT YDS TD LG D. Keller NYJ 5 69 0 19 J. Gaffney WAS 6 90 0 26
