Re: I'm getting that old feeling...

i think this feeling comes from the fact that the NFC sucks donkey dick, we can definately take the seahawks, giants, or bucs, and we just killed the cowboys (although they were missing their top corner and top reciever)...pretty much the only team that should have us worried is the packers due to their depth in the WR core and our lack of depth in the secondary. If by some miracle we make it to the show, we will probably get rocked.

Sorry that should have read "Jesus" not "Jesus".
The Spanish pronunciation did not come across in my writing (I am sure it is much clearer now).:yeahright

So the fact that we are confident I feel is a result of the fact that we are not playing the best teams.

Re: I'm getting that old feeling...

It's like this.
I to, remember the Joe1 teams. While the game was was being played, you could not wait to see the next play, next series, etc, as it was more magic the home boys were about to deliver. ALWAYS the confidence to FINISH with a win.
Even though we have posted some great games (and some horrific) under the Joe2 regime, it has not been the same. It has been more like "Geez, I wish this game would end, before we have a chance to F... it up"
Until lately! It has definately gathered momentum, to more of the Joe1 kind of feeling.
EX. In the Cowboy game the other day, TC was throwing everything low (even when he did not want to). I felt like confident, (like he could still reel it in) not panicky.......like we were going to blow it. And, he did
The times....they are a changin'

Re: I'm getting that old feeling...

The joke around DC was, Kilmer's knee's were so bad, that the defense beat him to the pocket

As this season has progressed, I have begun to sense a shift. For all of you too young to remember the first Gibbs tenure, this feeling about the Redskins that we all have now, was a constant, undeniable confidence. I am starting to see that indescribable, mysterious "energy" coming from Gibbs. He is focused, intense and has an enormous will to win and the team is feeding off of it. I did not sense this about the Redskins of '05. I think that team was surprised to be there in the playoffs and didn't really have the moxy to go all the way.
Will the Redskins win this weekend? I don't know. We'll see how it shakes out. All I know is that "feeling" is back. #21 is definitely still impacting the team and provides an intangible that can only help the Redskins of '07 go beyond all expectations.
I hope there are some members here that know what I'm talking about. That...feeling.
Peace out/West Side
HTTR!!
You guys crack me up..

I don't think you've watched the Hawks play.

Re: I'm getting that old feeling...

To set the record straight: the only time I've had a chance encounter with a "glory days" Redskin was this past Sunday before the game when I met Dexter Manley and he was gracious enough to sign my Portis jersey. No, I did not recognize him until he said, "Hi, my name's Dexter." Then, it clicked.

Re: I'm getting that old feeling...

Not only am I getting that old feeling, but if you look at Gibbs on the sideline....he's got that old look on his face. For some reason he seems much more intense, and confident. Gibbs has always had that quiet confidence about him and you can see it in his eyes.

I honestly think this team knows it can make it to the Superbowl.

Re: I'm getting that old feeling...

It hasn't been until these last four games that I've actually felt the Gibbs 1.0 magic. Not when he first got here, not even the run in '05 which got us into the playoffs. You can tell the way the players are talking; their demeanor. I almost get the sense that they could play the Seahawks in the next 30 minutes if they had to. That's how confident they are right now. I heard Shawn Springs say yesterday that he didn't know what a "Super Bowl locker room" felt like, but if this it, it sure feels good.

If there was ever a script to which Joe Gibbs plays best, it's the one that's unfolding right before our very eyes.

*Journeyman quarterback seemingly out of nowhere having a career year.
*No name defense - Not to be confused with the Dolphins of old.
*Role players stepping up
*Adversity on top of adversity
*Harsh weather conditions on a weekly basis.
*Running back with big heart and tough as nails.

Skins are playoff ready.
