Re: This will fire everybody up ...

Yeah, I really wonder who made those comments. Someone from within the NFC East supposedly made the remarks. It sounds like a player, rather than a coach.

Sounds like something T.O. would say. Remember, he conveniently missed out of the first Eagle game.

Whoever it was should ask Tampa Bay if we were a playoff team.

Re: This will fire everybody up ...

The chiefs offense was ranked 4th in 2001, and thats with their number 1 receiver, eddie kennison, only playing 5 games...their top receiver that year, besides gonzalez, was Marvin Minnis who only got 33 catches for 511 yards and 1 td. It was also Trent Green's and Priest Holmes' first year on the team. If we have the 4th place offense next year, and it takes 2 years to get good at the system, other teams better really watch out

Re: This will fire everybody up ...

I have a question because you guys know alot more about football than I. Do you guys realy think that they are throwing out Gibbs O book and completly moving to saunders system? If they do mix the systems will terms change to match Saunders system or can they keep some of Gibbs terms and some of Saunders. I just don't see them changing the whole system and changing all the play calling.

That doesn't even deserve a response.
They could be making a point about the Skins being overacheivers (that is winning more games than your situation dictates, has nothing to do with effort). If so, I can see where they are coming from, because a lot of teams overachieve. Seattle and Denver both overachieved last year.

I would make the arguement that the Skins underachieved last year (that is losing more games than their situation dictated). They had that 3 game losing streak, and could have easily won all those games. They vastly outgained both the Chiefs and Broncos in yards, losing only due to turnovers.

I think they should have been a 12-4 maybe 13-3 team last year. But hey, there's always this year.

They're completely switching to saunder's system, but it's really not that much different. They both learned from Don Coryell. The only real difference is the terminology and the playcalling

Yeah they are, but I think the changes will be gradual, and that there wasnt a complete overhaul this offseason. I think the terminology changed to be consistent with Saunders's O, but the formations and plays we see this year will be a combination of Gibbs' and Saunders' offenses.

wilsowilsoSure hope that same person reviews us next year. Last year's team wasn't really a Super Bowl Champion team.....
I say they got the assistant to the assistant of mop and broom maintenance at Giant Stadium to give that quality review.

Now.now be nice.

5-1 in the division.

5 straight wins to close out the season, with 3 of those wins coming in the division.

I'd say that's earning a playoff berth. Sounds like a playoff team to me no matter what way you spin things.

3 of the wins coming on the road, too.

This guy makes no real point. Sounds pretty typical.

Speaking of which, shouldn't a 5-1 record in the division make you division champ over a team that was 4-2 in the division?

Only as a tiebreaker. Which is the way it is right now.

File it away and ignore it.

53 men take the field September 11 wearing burgundy and gold; that's when the real discussion begins.

Re: This will fire everybody up ...

10 wins and 2 losses in conference is a solid playoff team to me.

It matters not what these people think. The only way you can say the Redskins D is smoke and mirrors is if you haven't seen them play more than a couple of games in the last two years, which is probably the case here. In 34 games under Williams the defense has been OUTSTANDING in 29 or 30 of those. I'd say they were at least good enough to win in 33 of the 34, the one egg was in New York last year. You can't do that with gimmicks.

I think experts like this will have to quickly re-evaluate once the obvious becomes... obvious.

Re: This will fire everybody up ...

If we have so little defensive talent then why do other teams keep cherrypicking our players every off season? (Pierce, Smoot, Arrington, Clark, etc...)
