Good teams beat the teams that they are supposed to beat. Also, the Lions are 6-3. If we are as shitty as you think we are, how did we absolutely demolish a 6-3 team?

BTW, should we change your screen name to RedskinsSuck703? After all that seems to be your whole schtick.

Ok you guys are getting me psyched up about this game. If we win I'll upgrade my membership to show my dedication to the forum and the team.

This is a sport wholly based in entertainment. You're routing for a team. Your cheering something on. There is this cause, this idea that you're a part of something along with your town/friends/family etc. That's what makes the NFL so exciting.

Fans have this exciting world of possibilities, of emotions, and of meaning. All in all, it is what it is; entertainment. But, for a second, zoom out and ask yourself why your a fan, and what being a fan means to you. This isn't a prediction thread. This is a thread devoted to supporting a common interest. We all will watch Sunday because we know that there is a chance that we can win.

If you thought that there was no chance, than why would you even watch? It would be pointless. This team is still driving for a the playoffs, and once again... the road looks tough. But this is what's so entertaining about the Redskins. Only two years ago we were faced with similar trials and tribulations and we succeeded. We won 5 and a row, and everyone went insane.

This is the thread to be a homer. This is the thread to throw all reason and logic out the window and just simply get your rally caps on and be a fan. If you can't do that, than where's the entertainment. What about this sport at all is exciting? Your missing out on the best part of watching football. This unpredictability, the chaotic nature of the beast.

This is a fan site... so let's start getting pumped up for the biggest week in Redskins football. It's Dallas week, if you can't get psyched up for this, than leave this thread alone.
Very well put Rob.

I personally think people don't know how to be fans anymore. The season is only so long, so I can't understand why people want to spend all the time and energy they do bitching about things they can't control.

Ultimately, my life's happiness is not determined by how well the Skins play week to week and I guess I look at the game experience in simpler terms. I enjoy putting on my jersey and sporting the team colors. I enjoy feeling like I'm apart of a franchise that has a such a long and rich history. I take a lot of pride in that. I enjoy discussing the upcoming games and sharing experiences with my fellow fans. I do take the losses pretty hard and I get frustrated at times, but it would be nice if we as a fanbase would do more to rally around the team instead of constantly tearing them down. I don't see the point really.

I've watched this team for 25 years. They can take you to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. For me, that's what makes them exciting and so much fun to watch.

It sucks, of course it sucks, no fan enjoys losing.

But what's even more frustrating is that it seems we can't even come onto this site, a REDSKINS FAN SITE, to boost our spirits and rally around our team. Instead, we have the usual "Joe must go" "This team is heading in the wrong direction" thread. Sad part is we even get those after wins. You'd think we'd never won a game ever the way some people talk.

So, call me crazy, call this thread 'retarded' all you want, but it's high time we got some more positive vibes going here. Of course, I know there will be those "I'm just being a realist" responses. But the reality is that we're 5-4 and plenty of teams around the NFL are in worse shape than us. And there is a lot to feel good about 9 games into the season. That so few people see that on a Redskins fan site is a shame.

Call it bold, call it stupid. But I'm saying right here right now that the Redskins will be 6-4 after next Sunday. Someone has to think positive, it might as well be me. If we lose, I'll use the infamous Parrot avatar for two weeks. If we win, I'm banning 10 of you for two weeks

I'm about to do a Kool-Aid keg stand, who's with me?

Smooty you goof, we just lost ST for two weeks. You think Romo is going to blow it in Dallas? Kool Aid my ass!!!!!!!! You must be smokin some high powered crack from the streets of DC!!!!!!! Crazy man, just crazy!!!!!! If we pull it off somehow it will be the greatest upset in the history of what is left of this rivalry. Dallas is going to score 35 points on us without ST though, so if you think we are going to win JC better throw 6 TDs.

Lions are about to slide a bit Sheriff. NY and GB are going to beat the shit out of them, then I believe they get Dallas next after that. NEVER use the Lions as a gage of a good team. They have teased us up here in Detroit for years only to blow it somehow along the way. To be honest, the NFL is in a sorry ass state now with only literally a few teams playing anything resembling decent football(GB, Dallas,NE, and INdy) The rest of the squads are a lot like us with injuries or schmucks not performing. IF we do beat Dallas this year, it will be in Fedex with the Boys resting Romo, TO, and the gang getting ready for the playoffs. It sucks rocks, but that is what it looks like. We just are in a sorry ass state as of now as a team. We seem to lose a starter every week now.

True enough, but the Redskins' losses to the Giants, Eagles, and Packers have all been respectable (if there is such a thing with regard to losses). In fact, we were leading all 3 teams at the half and looking pretty dominant (not Patriots' dominant, but dominant nonetheless). Now good teams put opponents to bed and hold onto leads, but bad teams don't beat up on good teams during the first or second half of games.

Throwing logic out the window for fantasy is exactly the reason our nation is in a sorry ass state. And if everyone on the thread/site/blog was always like Yeah Redskins #1 all the time it would get boring after awhile. I see your point Rob, but a message board blog that says the same stuff all the time gets rather boring. The debate is what makes a blog or message board interesting and fun. I mean half the time I say shoot from the hip stuff just to get folks going. It is rather fun to be honest!!!!! Everyone here, with maybe a few folks, will cheer for the Skins no matter what even if they don't think the Skins realistically have a chance.

Somebody sticky this post (if you can?) and make it required reading before joining this discussion forum.

I agree that the different viewpoints make this site interesting. BUT, I personally want to hear the views of people who have shown the ability to think things through, mean what they say, and not say things just to stir the pot. In my experience, stirring the pot for the sake of creating controversy just causes fights and leads to posters having to wade through post after post of personal attacks.

Re: Pourin' Some Kool-Aid for My Homeys, Redskins Will Beat Dallas

How many picked the Rams to beat the Saints yesterday? How many picked us to beat the Saints last year? How many picked us to beat Dallas last year? How many picked Dallas to beat us when they went 1-15??? HOW MANY PEOPLE PICKED APP STATE TO BEAT MICHIGAN???????? It CAN happen!!! Honestly I don't know how some of these people get in front of the tv on Sunday to watch the game. Yes there's a good chance they will lose, but there's a CHANCE we will win!!! Either way, come Sunday...and EVERY Sunday during EVERY season....the jersey or shirt goes on, a beer goes in the hand...and the hope goes up!!! EVERY TIME!!!

REDSKINS 24 hours a day 7 days a week!

Well when I started this thread, I didn't know the status of Taylor's injury. But the point of this thread, as pointed out by Lady Brave and RobH4413, among others, was to get some positive vibes going on this site.

I think there should be more threads like the ones 12thMan and skinsfan242 did today about "Perspective" and "Good and Bad" (though esentially the same thread). We're not 9-0, we're not 0-9. We're 5-4, a decent team with vast room for improvement. I'm not happy that we lost, I'm never happy when the team loses but one of the reasons I joined this site was to be able to come one after a win or loss and discuss intelligently with fellow fans.

Instead it's become so that the worst part about losing isn't the loss, but the reactions of so many members here. When we lose we get "rediculously" stupid threads and every other person here wants to end their own life it seems and insult anyone who dares to have any hope.

It is, as I've mentioned throughout the site, going to be very difficult to beat the Cowboys this weekend. Impossible? No. Difficult. Absolutely. I'd like, and I'm sure others would too, to be able to discuss the upcoming game rationally.

But if there's going to such extreme negativism it seems the only way to respond is with the total opposite. Damn shame that there is so much wasted knowledge on this site lately.
