Jason Campbell: Sit. He doesn't make plays and the Eagles will be coming after him hard. Jason has developed, but not nearly enough for anyone to play him against a top defense like this. Not when the offense is slumping.
Clinton Portis: He rushed for 145 yards in the first meeting as the Redskins took advantage of the Eagles small ends. But the Redskins will be minus their starting tackles. Regardless of what people think of Jon Jansen he helps on the ground. The Redskins have shown that they can't run the ball against good defenses anymore. And Portis has not scored since Oct. 19. But at least he's healthier so he's not a bad risk.
Santana Moss: Zero catches in the first game. The Eagles doubled him often and it worked. So why not do it again? Nothing has changed with their secondary. But the Redskins MUST find a way to get this guy the ball. If he's a playmaker and the offense is struggling … But, again, there have to be better options for you.
Chris Cooley: He'll get you catches, no doubt. His only TD came vs. the Eagles on an Antwaan Randle El pass. Gotta play him.
Redskins defense: They're as healthy as they've been in a long, long time. Brian Westbrook is a concern and the lack of a pass rush, despite what Greg Blache says, is a major concern. But the Redskins match up fine with this offense. Not a great choice because the Redskins' O no longer possesses the ball enough to make the D even more effective. And the lack of turnovers and big plays gives me pause. But the D should be at its best.
Shaun Suisham: If you get points for kicks missed wide right, by all means play him. Or if 32-yard field goals are somehow worth double, then he's a wise choice.
