6-2 thru mid-season
 
Well guys, I thought we should start a thread thanking the new coach and our team for a great season to this point.

I am not crowning the team as champions of the East or saying we are in the playoffs, but I want to thank all our players, Coach Zorn and the whole Redskins staff.

Thanks you guys!! I expect the second half of the season to be just as good. This could finally be our year to win the division and who knows what else. Keep up the good work guys and strive to keep getting better each week.

Before the season started I would have expected 4-4 at this point, maybe 5-3 at best. The scary part is this team is capable of playing so much better. They're still working out the kinks but they're winning in the process.

Yeah 6-2 was just not something I thought we'd do. I might have optimistically thought we could do it with some help but it wouldn't have been reasonable. That said I think we're walking a line right now and we need to take some serious steps away from it. We have to start putting a little dominance into our performance. Not saying we need to win 40-0 every week but we have to impose our will and finish better or we could be 2-6 down the stretch. The positive is that this team is playing better football collectively than we have in years.

Matty I completely agree with you. I did not have any idea what to expect out of this team or our new coach. And you are right, if we can figure out how to put this offense together we can be scary good.

The way Zorn has released some of that talent that Jason has is awesome and it makes you feel good about the future of this team with Jason at the helm. As long as he continues to improve.

JC with 0 INTs through 8 games. Nobody would have guessed that back in August.

Im with FRPLG. I'm happy for the strong start as far as record goes, but we have a lot of work to go. If we work on our red-zone offense we could be a damn good team.

I never thought this team would be 6-2 at this point. Its amazing what a coach with a modern concept of the game can do.

This team is 2/3 of the way to the playoffs with half the season to go. The have put themselves in an excellent position at the mid point of the season. Now they need to bear down and get to 9 wins asap.

No Ints and how about only one fumble. Last year he was a fumble machine!!

This is the best Redskins team I can ever remember watching. (I was 2 years old in 1991) They may not be dominant but they are getting it done. 6-2 is just amazing after years and years of 2-4 and 3-5 starts leading to 8-8 and 7-9 seasons.

Jason Campbell is looking like a pro bowl quarterback this year so far, and if you had told me in August that he would have 0 interceptions after 8 games, I would've asked you if it was Todd or Colt that took his job.

Lets just pray that they can improve and limit stupid mistakes, and we could be looking at a deep run and maybe even some home games in the playoffs.

I mean, they started 5-3 in 2007 and 2005 and 1999 (I won't mention the 6-2 start in 2000). Let's not get too crazy with the 'greatest team since 1991' thing. Steelers are going to be tough this week.

Well said!
And please..... I don't want to hear how we are not winning "pretty" or we "should have won by a larger margin." I mean C'mon! The truth is if we hadn't committed so many of those garbage penalties that kept their drive alive (ending in a TD) and stopped who knows how many of our 1st downs the game [B]would[/B] have been a blow out. But at the end of the season we all know a win is a win.
The thing is any [B]one[/B] team going into playing a winless team could have lost or sweated out the game out with a close win. [B]ANY TEAM![/B] Now I'm sure the Chicago forums are all saying "watch the trap game"..."lets not play down to a winless team"....just like we were. LOL

I agree. We could very easily be 4-4 also. We haven't been turning the ball over and still just pulling out wins. If we are really that good, then we should be winning by bigger margins playing turnover free games against the teams we have faced the past 3 weeks.

Great job by the team, they're exceeding expectations.

I'm thrilled with our ability to move the ball, but I want to see us winning the turnover battle. Lately we've been losing that battle.

When we go to play NYG, Dallas, and Philly again - the games that will make or break our season - we're going to need the turnover battle on our side.

The offense is doing a decent enough job protecting the football lately, but the defense isn't generating any. We need to turn that around, and I'd point toward the pass rush. We need to generate more pressure on the QB, that should lead to the turnovers which would allow us to start winning more convincingly.

Re: 6-2 thru mid-season
 
We had a couple of turnover chances yesterday on fumbles that literally didn't bounce our way, those are so frustrating. And of course Rogers had one bounce off his hands, again. But at least he's playing at a high level.
