No love for Ol' DC

What is the deal? As a long time loyal Skins fan, I am accustomed to negative press regarding my beloved Skins. However, I have yet to hear anybody come out and endorse DC's favorite son's to do.....................anything this season. I prefer to be the Dog, but this is crazy. I can forgive ninnies like Sean Salisbury, and Pasta as "they know not what they say". Disappointingly, my man Jaws, and John Clayton have yet to be counted among the faithful?????????? I hear most suggest we will be basement of the division, or at least sub-basement. Has pre-season become that important? if so, the Raiders should kick ass! Are we the only ones that see the personnel, and coaching staff? I hear Cowboys to go all the way.....................errr...........how? The best quote I have heard in some time comes from a local sports guy I can pull out of Miami (if the weather is right). He say, "I have watched Drew Bledsoe for 10 years. You smack him a couple of times in the first half, and he's cross-dressin' by half time".

Re: No love for Ol' DC

The so called experts have bitten hard on the preseason.

Funny how they always tell us that the preseason doesn't matter, but they sure do take it all in hook, line and sinker.

These are the same experts who say things like "The Eagles are better off with TO gone" and then in the next paragraph "TO makes Dallas a Superbowl level team". Their idiocy knows no bounds.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

I much prefer it this way. Under the radar is way better than over-hyped. Plus, it's bulliten board material.

And I agree--what do these morons know anyway? They never run an article at the end of the year saying how well they picked things, do they?

Whatever they are smoking i wish i had some...because that shit must be the chronic.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

Bill Simmons also tried to say that the NFC East wasn't really the toughest division, but he offered no answer to who it really is.

It got me thinking about it, and maybe the NFCE doesn't have the best teams in the NFL, or even the NFC, but can any of the teams be considered weak? No. Are any of the teams push-overs? No. As it stands now, would any coach in the NFL count out an NFCE team before they play them? No.

Look at each {arguably} the weakest team(s) in each other division: NFC North - Green Bay, Detroit; West - San Fran, St Louis; South - New Orleans AFC East - Jets, Buffalo; North - Cleveland; West - Oakland; South - Houston, Tennessee.
Can you really say that any of the NFC East teams wouldn't be in the mix for the top team if it was in one of these divisions? NO!

Re: No love for Ol' DC

riiight...Once we are 4-0 (having hog tied the cowpukes next sun night) all these douchebags will be scratching their heads with an "aw shucks" grin and jump on the bandwagon but still undercut us any chance they get. Happens every year. F' em all.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

Jason Whitlock still believes in the Skins (he started believing last season). This is from his Page 2 article:

5. I still have high expectations for Al Saunders and the Redskins' offense.

A lot of people are jumping off the Redskins bandwagon because Washington's first-team offense didn't score a point in the preseason. I'm not jumping.

Saunders, Washington's new offensive coordinator, is a glory hound, and I didn't like the way he exited Kansas City. He basically accused Lamar Hunt of reneging on a pledge to name him successor to Dick Vermeil. I don't believe Hunt or general manager Carl Peterson ever made that pledge.

Having said all of that, Saunders knows how to coordinate an offense. The Redskins will score points with or without Clinton Portis. Washington has a capable backup running back in Ladell Betts, a talented receiving corps, a solid offensive line and an experienced quarterback.

I'll be shocked if the Redskins don't score 30 points on "Monday Night Football."

Re: No love for Ol' DC

Gil Brandt, who I really respect a lot, but some really gruesome statistics on preseason out there. He said while the score and outcome don't matter, the way you play the game really does. Execution is key, having some sort of momentum moving into the system is also really nice. Players know it's preseason, but they still start questioning.

The Super Bowl champs over the last 13ish seasons are 39-13 in the preseason. It was about a week or week and a half ago, don't remember everything. While preseason "means" nothing, you should never overlook just complete lack of production like the Redskins saw. I'm sorry, we were Vanilla, but so was everyone else. They had no problems scoring. Simple throws, etc.

Hopefully our offense can turn it on with a switch, but I doubt it. This division top to bottom will be seperated by no more than 3 games. If you told me the Redskins won it at 10-6 or 11-5 (doubt any team in our div goes 11-5) or lost it at 8-8 or 7-9. I wouldn't be the least bit suprised either way.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

here's a little fact about preseason...the last time a joe gibbs coached team started 0-4 in the preseason...well as a redskins fan you should know well the rest is history. I think that year we won our first 12 games. the preseason means absolutely nothing. remember spurrier's first year here i think we were like 3-1 or maybe 4-0 in the preseason and that didnt matter one bit once the season started. i think we finished 7-9 that year i am speaking of with the 'ol ball coach.
