All I can say is look back to last year. 5-6. The season appeared to be lost. I for one sure thought it was. The team turned it around. Anything is possible and it's a very long season.

Things can only improve from here on out.
from that 5-6, they lost to denver on the last play, they lost to tampa 36-35, they lost to SD one an OT broken tackle by the best running back in the NFL. 5-6 last year wasn't NEARLY as grim as these games have been thusfar.

But look at how they won at Dallas and versus Seattle. It balances out.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

i agree.

the team is looking bad but there isn't crap we can do except a slight post increase until sunday.

i'm glad we're playing a crappy team in houston bc a win can go a long way.

I agree its early, but much like our preseason, it is hard to not press when the team is looking this bad.
If we were 0-2 and we did better from week one to week two it would not be so bad, but god did we ever regress. Sure the Cowyboys are probably better then Minny, but we made them look like the steal curtain.
I don't know if we looked this bad during all of 2004.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

And 0-2 hurts more because we're 0-1 in the division and 0-2 in the conference:

Chew on this for a while: The two biggest reasons the Redskins made the playoffs last season were their 5-1 division and 10-2 conference records. (They got swept by the AFC West.) They're now 0-1 in the division and 0-2 in the conference. So obviously, they're going to have to find another formula this year -- net touchdowns or something.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

I assumed that the offense was going to start off a little slow and weren't going to have a lot of rhythm early in the season - but the defense is more worrisome for me. Does not having springs impact the defensive performance that much ?

I thought that the defense would need to win the games early on, but they just aren't that strong right now.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

I waited 8 months for this and there is no way i am giving up after 2 weeks. We were 5-6 and we won 5 straight and 3 of those were in the division.

We were 2-0 a few years ago under spurrier; hot damn that turned out well didn't it?

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

Relax everyone, this is just the coaches keeping the scheme bland and vanilla, so they don't reveal too much...

The thing that really struck me from the game last night was how much pressure they got on Brunell. Campbell wouldn't have done any better facing that sort of rush. Both Skins lines have been outplayed through two games. If they can't step it up against the Texans, we know we have serious problems.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

Like many of you I have been anxiously awaiting the start of the season. I must say the Redskins are looking pathetic. I am not a fan of Mark Brunnel. I keep asking myself What Did This Team do in the Offseason. We need a QB and fast or it will be a painful season. No I'm not a fair weather fan. I've been following this team for over 40 years. M. B. under or over threw his open receivers ALL NIGHT long last night a and even against the Vikings. Based on ehat I have seen (and it hurts me to say so) take the Texans and bet the spread. Does this look like a $2M dollar offense to anyone. So what Portis is hurt if we only have 1 player then let's fold up and go home. Where is the Pride?

I don't think anyone's giving up. We're just very concerned because this is a playoff team that picked up several players, and we're moving backward.

We need to remind Brunell that Lloyd and Randel El - and NOT Mr. Sideline and The Ground - are the newest addition to our receiving corps.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

I knew we'd be in this position after the devistating Minnesota loss. Here's what I have to say:

My preseason projection was 12-4. The loss to Dallas was projected in that 4. The Minnesota game was not. To be 12-4 and in position for HFA, they must now win a game that I have projected them to lose (Jacksonville (1-0, tonight pending), at Philadelphia (1-1), at Tampa Bay (0-2)), as well as take care of all the other opponents. It's very doable. I know it looks grim right now, but when you think about it, we played good enough to beat the Vikings (who have proved themselves a good team), and the Dallas game wont matter to anyone in two weeks.

Chins up Redskins fans.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

Let's face it, this is a team who's goal is to win a SB. So its pretty dissappointing. Its not that we are 0-2 its that this is isn't a SB, playoff caliber team (at this point). I'll save this for the brunell thread but brunell is not the guy to take us to the superbowl.

One thing I'm confident about, no one on this team will take on the attitude of Roy Williams. No, not that one, this one

I can't blame him for saying the score doesn't matter...he's on the Detriot Lions! You HAVE to say that if you're on the Lions or you'll lock yourself in a bathroom stall and cry at halftime of every game.

The Lions have plenty of reasons to celebrate first downs too.
