Re: Something Positive To Take From Tonight...

attempts going downfield, real nice. we saw a tiny glimpse of what is to come.

also, did the skins use any motion? I mean, I don't think they had any pre-snap movement at all...that tells me we were holding A LOT back, so I'm not sorry worried about the lackluster performance.

Re: Something Positive To Take From Tonight...

I'm not worried either. I'm sure the second teamers will come around though. They damn well better. I was praying for them to put Lumsden in the game when Carter acted like he was auditioning for the lead in Breakin 3 The Return of Turbo every time he touched the ball. Portis getting hurt was unfortunate but he should be fine.

TODD COLLINS SUCKS DONKEY BALLS !!!!!

Re: Something Positive To Take From Tonight...

1. B. Lloyd's catch.. Damn!
2. 1st string defense looked tough
3. Taylor looks like he is going to destroy the NFC this year.
4. Campbell Campbell Campbell. The future looks bright.
5. I don't have to listen to Collinsworth again anytime soon.

Nice point, goritz. No motion at all. Lots of formations, but they didn't get into that Saunders shift thing. And that is a big deal. And I agree with GoSkins that beyond a certian point, it was just helmet to helmet with no scheming out there. It's early yet!

Re: Something Positive To Take From Tonight...

I also want to give a shout out to none other than Derrick Frost. He was booming his punts last night.

AND Hall made a kick!

Re: Something Positive To Take From Tonight...

Another positive: however much all of us (or some of us) are worried, no one takes this stuff more seriously than Joe Gibbs. Did you see the postgame presser? He looked like someone had shot his dog or something. No Mr. Friendly Coach Joe there--all he wanted to do was get home and look at the tapes and start fixng things. ANy worries about overconfidence and complacency are gone (if they ever were around). Gibbs sweats the details; we'll turn all this into positives.

dmek and I saw the same thing: Kenny Wright getting spread open and buttered. There were at least three other completions against him while was covering Henry -- kinda made Kenny look like Henry's bitch.

Then again, it was a bad night for everybody.

Vanilla now. Vanilla A-bombs later. Wright,Reed-and anyone slipping Be very afraid.
You got me thinking...has there ever been a better opening game than when we cracked open a bottle of whoop-ass on Detroit in the 1991 opener. Talk about making a statement. Rypien lit up Detroit for like 400 yards...it was relentless, merciless, brutal. 45 to nothing was the final score. Wayne Fontes was practially on his knees praying for the slaughter to stop by the 4th quarter. And Detroit was a good team that year. The Skins met them again in the NFC championship game and beat them 41-10 on thier way to to SB XXVI.

I was literally on the field for that game since my high school marching band played half-time. We sat right behind the home bench...within arms length of the players. Incredible.

I would love for Al and Joe to make that kind of opening statement again this year. I want opposing teams to shit their pants thinking about having to play the Skins. Parity doesn't really allow for that kind of domination any more, but man was it fun to watch.

that's awesome ^

In times of turmoil I'll bust out the '91 tape. It makes me miss Darrell Green.

I remember those games, and I think alot of that success came from all those shifts that Gibbs and Co. had implemented. But, it was sweet!
