Anyone else nervous?

I don't know about you guys but, I 've been nervous about the Seattle game from the moment we won last night. Guess that really dosen't matter, I was nervous all last week for the Bucs game. Go Skins!

Re: Anyone else nervous?

give me atleast till tommorrow then i'll be over tampa and all into seattle. it is a wierd cycle, every week after two days the game feels so long ago. Tampa is becoming ancient history. I am not horrified by anyone but am scared of everyone. We can win or lose to anyone left in the playoffs and that is expecially true of the NFC

Re: Anyone else nervous?

Gotta be nervous, its the playoffs against the #1 seed. We're defintley underdogs, but this isnt some super-power team. They might be a little bit better than us, they might not be. Its a team we beat already this year, so its a winnable game. Theres no gaurntee in this game, and we have to play solid, but I'm no more nervous this week than I was against Tampa Bay last week.

Relax, just be thankful we are where we are at. One game at a time. Seattle will be tough, but i think we are now a "playoff" team.

No matter who the Skins play it will be a challenge, and on the road. But the Skins have already beaten Seattle once, they can do it again. Besides look who Seattle has played, they are in the worst division in football and got to play Arizona, SF, and St. Louis twice each. They got beaten soundly in Jacksonville. And look at their wins. They squeaked past mediocre Atlanta at home 21-18. Got past St. Louis 37-31. Barely beat Dallas at home 13-10. Barely got past the woeful Niners 27-25. Barely beat the Giants at home 24-21. Barely beat the terrible Titans 28-24.

Seattle is definitlely beatable.

Re: Anyone else nervous?

No, not nervous. Excited maybe. I am just glad that I can watch another week of my favorite team play football!!!
I love the Redskins and its been a long time since I got to watch them play more than 20 games (incl preseason) in a year! We are in the playoffs. We won a playoff game. Therefore, the Redskins are a playoff team, no doubt. I still can see us going all the way. What would the critics say then????

Re: Anyone else nervous?

This season is almost like a dream, and I definitely don't want to wake up!

Seriously though, to me this has been a great season already, everything from here on out is just icing on the cake.

6 weeks ago could you imagine someone saying the Redskins would not only make the playoffs but go on the road and punk Tampa in their own backyard??

None of this talk!
There can be no content feelings!
Everyone including fans must realize that the future is now. None of this "We're just happy to be here" type stuff. I agree this season has been great but I will agonize for months if we lose. I will not be happy. A wise man once said: "Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing"

Re: Anyone else nervous?

I'm not exceedingly worried about the Seattle game. Our defense should keep it close. I'm only nervous about our offense - which has struggled woefully since Brunell hurt his knee against the Giants.

Way to do your homework. im definately at ease now about the game. For one thing our defense knows how to make a team one demensional and Seattles D wont do what the Bucs D did to us. All we have to do is what we always do and thats stop the run<we do that> and pressure the qb<we do that also> Now im not gonna say its gonna be easy at all, but our offense will definately be on the right page this week. We got three more games in us, we can rest in a month.<and we will deserve it>

I know. Part of me is actually excited for the offseason just so my freaking body can get back to some normalicy. But if a Super Bowl run is gonna take a couple years off my life....THEN A SUPER BOWL IT IS!!!

Re: Anyone else nervous?

I know some will scoff at this but I honestly think this past weeks performance or lack there of by our offense against the #1 defense in the league might actually give the team a chance to have lulled Seattle into a bit of a mental trap. We know that all week the offense is going to get the absolute best preperation possible to shake off last week and show it for the fluke we think it was. We also know that all week we r going to hear in the media how Seattle should run right over the skins cuz we won ugly. I think the team will have an oppurtunity if executed properly to exploit the possibility that Seattle will have it's guard down early against our offense. We have seen how explosive the offense can be through various parts of the season and I could definitely see Gibbs taking some early shots down the field possibly even through trickeration to try and open up some things throughout the rest of the game.

I know I'm always atleast a bit nervous with every game but that's part of being a fan. I am extremely confident in the teams chances especially with the phenomal play of late by our defense especially with the pressure on opposing qbs and finally forcing turnovers in bunches. I've had hopes of the skins playing this time of the year every year until mathematically eliminated and I have no reason not to believe in the teams chances of continueing its season against a team we already beat when we weren't really playing our best ball. GO SKINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
