    I'd set the over/under on tackles to be at 6. But I think he will get 8 and a turnover. Somebody is going to be hit pretty hard, that's for sure.

    He will hold his own. He is not going to get run over but he will not be defensive rookie of the week either.. Expect a stable performance, I kinda expect him to look like DJ did in the first games of the year and if he really follow DJ's footstep he will improve game after game.

    Against a run heavy team, he should be alright. Honestly I'm not sure if there is another team that would be better for him to start against, from our schedule anyways.

    I'm optimistic. I said he'll make us forget about Williams, but I'll be honest with you guys; in my opinion, he doesn't have to play that well to make me forget about Williams. I think Anderson has been the better of our two FA Linebackers.

    I think Bostic will be caught out of position a few times, and he'll make mistakes; some may even be costly, but I think he'll also make some plays that Williams would not.

    Steady not stellar. Though I wish he could have gotten his feet wetter during garbage times (had there been any) vs pass-beavy schemes.

    He will make a play or two thats like WOW, then another play or two that are like wtf. Until he stabilizes, thats what he brings to the table with is raw abilities.

    I think he will hold his own. He won't shine. At least not his first game

    If he's better against the run, than DJ, that's going to make a HUGE difference this game. With Washington, you want to make RGIII throw. He's obviously regressed from last year, be it injury, or not having a preseason, but that doesn't matter, compared to the fact that he's significantly less accurate than he was last year (going from 65 to 59 completion percentage means a lot for quarterbacks). If Bostic can help shut down the run, he will be a huge presence for us. I think RGIII, right now, is very vulnerable to a Charles Tillman or a Tim Jennings, if they decide to pass a lot. I just don't see them doing anything other than trying to run the ball as much as possible. If that's correct, Bostic won't be as much of a liability, as trying to test the middle of the field is a lot riskier to a Redskins team that's going up against what is still a pretty good secondary.
