Re: ESPN reports skins have "no chance"

Yeah, I don't understand these predictions. He look stupid anyway. The team is on fire. They been playing good football on all 3 cylinders. The offense are putting points on the board. The defense have been making turnovers. The Special Teams have been making turn overs as well as giving us good field position as well as giving the opposing team bad field position.

We are playing good football, and just because we are playing in Qwest Field which is undoubtly the hardest place to play in the league. We are just going to sit there and lose. "We are going to fight our guts". The Seahawks are depending on Hasselback to lead the team. The rest of the team has been doing nothing all year including Alexander. The Redskins have too many weapons on offense and defense to just say the Redskins have no chance.

Another case is that we have been in every game this year except the Patriots game. We are one of the best teams in the NFL. I don't care what anyone says. That is the way I see it.

Why does that make me think of a busted down honda civic?

Twenty years ago we didn't have the internet or cable... just the network pre-game show with Jimmy the Greek picking the games.... No offense I'd rather stay here in 2008 and deal with all the opinions.

Re: ESPN reports skins have "no chance"

What a fool! The ONLY way we have NO chance is if the pilot gets lost and the plane lands in ALASKA tomorrow night.

These writers are clueless! Lets see what they write after peeling off our 5th WIN in a row....still lucky...

Re: ESPN reports skins have "no chance"

You guy's crack me up. Its like people look for all these writers who are talking Skins football. If they pick the Skins then they have come around and if they pick against the skins they are morons. ESPN has to have these writers with different opinions or they would be very boring. Like having a talk show where everyone agrees on everything. This board is a fine example of people having different opinions on the skins. We are riding high on Collins because he got OUR TEAM into the playoffs and if we asked anyone before the season what would happen if Todd became our starter only that one guy (for got his name) would have said we would have a chance. Its not like this guy does not have a good point about TC one that most here held until several weeks ago. Everytime I think of TC all I can remember is his first play for us was a pass right to a d lineman for a TD but the more that he plays the more it fades from my memory.

It amazes me what people remember and hold on to.

Wasn't that in a preseason game? You're really holding on to a memory from a meaningless preseason game??

Yup since one person at ESPN gave his opinion that means that's ESPN for you. Makes total sense. GTripp picked the Seahawks to win, but you know that's The Warpath for you. Every idiot (not calling you an idiot Tripp) on here has no clue and is picking Seattle.

Mike Greenberg, Marcellus Wiley, and Ray Buchanan (among others) all picked the Redskins. Why isn't that "ESPN for you now?"

True, I tend to get a bit upset when people are continually bashing my colleagues and where I work. But it's fine when there's some substance behind the complaint. Not when they are stupid generalizations.

Re: ESPN reports skins have "no chance"

Four Writers I CANNOT STAND:

Peter King
Jason "Uncle Tom" Whitlock
Bill Simmons
Jay "Gay" Mariotti

I don't believe I just read Simmons's crap. *SMH*

Re: ESPN reports skins have "no chance"

Have an issue, Smoot? Here's a tissue...I keed, I keed.

Bill Simmons is a "sports"writer, as in, he writes about sports, but he does it more for comedic value (hence his spot on Page2). The article is based purely on a "system" he has for picking games. If you go by his system, you can't help but pick the Seahawks. So what if Bill "Mr. Boston" Simmons picks the Seahawks? BFD. He's a Pats fan for Pete's sake!

I laughed at the thread title when I first saw it because I just assumed everyone from the Weekly Intern to the CEO of ESPN had all picked the 'hawks...

I know it's the Friday before the biggest game of the year (they all are from here on out), but give it a rest. Take the source for what's it's worth and have a pleasant day.

Re: ESPN reports skins have "no chance"

You know, I never get too wrapped up into what the media is saying or ESPN for that matter. I take it for it is, another opinion. Don't get me wrong, there are times when it seems personal, i.e. Monks induction into the Hall or Sean Taylor's death. But all in all, I don't let much get under my skin (pardon the pun).
