time to say good morning to our facebook fan of the day. today, it is jeremiah but ton from hollywood, maryland and it looks like he is not only a fox 5 morning news fan but also a fan ever the burgundy and gold. they need all of the help they can get, steve and dave. >> we'll see how much time santana gets on the field on
sunday. it is a big game, the eagles coming in. 1-4, possibly the best 1-4 team in the recent history of the nfl. >> we know they're very talented. we saw it last year when they came hear on that monday night and ran roughshod over the redskins. the problem is they've been a turnover machine so far this year and redskins fans are hoping that will continue on sunday. the guy we have to talk about, we have to start off with michael vick. vick has not been the same michael vick we saw a year ago. the reason why is pressure. team are getting pressure on this phone offensive line. you can see here, he got hit by his blind side. he can't see. more pressure. throw it right to the corn are because he has to get rid of the football quicker. when he has had some time like this, he made some bad decision. he complained about getting hit there. the key to slowing down the eagles, it is very simple. you have to do that. you have to hit number 7 smack dab in the face and he will
make dad decisions. he had nine turnovers all of last year and now he already has 10. >> the redskins will get the pressure on whether it is kerrigan oregon -- or orakpo. >> he could elude the you initial rush and get like a 40- yard game. he still runs like a gazelle. it is pretty sweet to actually watch him run. >> he is fun to watch. if they can contain him, they'll have a good chance to win. i actually think they will. we haven't seen the eagles blocking that front seven very well at all against anybody and why should it be different this week with the redskins. for the running backs, we
talked about this. you know you had some concerns about time hitower with ryan torain coming in last week and looking as good as he did in essentially a half. who is going to get the nod this week? >> that is my question. >> they've been very coy about that. it doesn't matter. they're all going to see ask. hightower has been limited this week so i don't know how much he is going to see. you will see a lot of ryan are to rain. you will see a lot of roy halu. jure not competing against the guys in the locker room. you are competing against 32 other teams. any given day, a guy, every time they come off of there and has a free agent. it is not a matter of one. those things where you get comfortable because you are now the starting guy. every single day, you are pushing to be best can you be. >> redskins coming off -- they
have the number three defense. you know who has the number one offense? >> the eagles. >> this was a good one last night. caps 3-0 so far. three overtime wins this year. >> if you like heart-stopping hockey, it has been unbelievable. >> love it. >> we talked to bruce boudreau. you got to jump right off. you can't ease into the season. >> he says there is no easing into anything and last night, right here, getting the game withinner in overtime. three games, three overtime winners. bruce boudreau and the boys undefeated. what i great start to the hockey season for the caps. >> fan taft you be start. there was appear article in the pittsburgh newspaper yesterday talking about how the caps were having trouble with pittsburgh. well, got it done last night. >> can't wait for the football on sunday and the programming reminder. >> the game will be on sunday afternoon so you can watch it right here. we're back after this. we'll see you at 6:00.
