Ha . . . that quote reminds me of Buddy's quote from Kill Bill I & II

I hate looking ahead. One game at a time and treat each one as if it's just as hard as Dallas.... That's the only way to make it to 7-1.

You're assuming anyone actually figured the 700 pages out.

OK, maybe Campbell knows it. He studies hard.

Sigh. Meanwhile on the Dallas forums.... fans are calling for Jason Garretts head and declaring him a moron. Did they think we were going to go undefeated all season? Sometimes its a little embarrassing...

I'd be more embarrassed at TO's comments after the game, about how they didn't get him the ball enough and that is why you lost. They had 60 offensive plays, 20 went to TO, and he dropped like 8 balls. One third of the O going his direction is not enough, string a few weeks like this together and the 'new mature' TO will be long gone...

Re: Looking at the schedule...

It's obvious Philly can't punch it in the endzone w/o Westbrook. We need to shutdown their rookie wr like we did with TO and our chances are good to come out with a win in Philly. 7-1 is definitly doable the way this team is playing.

I think we should all have some cautious optimism here. We are a team w/ a new coach and a new system. We've won a few games in a row and played very well thru the majority of those games. We are not in a position to think we are that much better than many teams out there. A couple more decisive wins, then maybe. But I'm not ready to believe we are going to win the NFC East yet. The skins still have some work to do. It was a big road win but it's just one road win.

But, yes the schedule is favorable for the skins, but I still realize we are a work in progress. Hopefully we can take another step this week in Philly.
I think this is the right perspective.

You never want to go down the path of counting wins. It will just end up making you pissed off as a fan when they drop a game they are supposed to win.

Now, I feel optimistic because we have a veteran squad that has been under Gibbs for several years and Gibbs was pretty good at preaching humility and winning winnable games. I think Zorn has continued that approach so we should be in good shape.

However the claims of going '7-1' or even '6-2' are just far-fetched at this point.

How about, "I think we have a great chance of winning this Sunday at Philly!"

Re: Looking at the schedule...

Just to tack on to my last point, we have stayed relatively healthy and played near mistake-free football - AND we have been winning by small margins.

Now the latter point has a lot to do with execution but the injuries issue is a bit more haphazard.

So what happens when things start going wrong for us, as they inevitably will at some point over the 16-game season?

That's another question that needs to be considered before we start claiming '7-1'.

Re: Looking at the schedule...

Don't like the Rams coming to DC following a bye with the new head coach. And hated to see Dallas and Philly back-to-back; on the road too! But I do like having all three division teams coming to FedExField during the second half of the season.

I would have to agree about it being a trap, maybe not in terms of Al. I think the Rams are gonna win a game or two soon, new coach, teams will sleep on them, and they have nothing to lose.

I am scared more of this game than the Philly game to be honest. I don't really mind if we lose against the Eagles, but losing versus the Rams would not be good.

There is no such thing as a favorable stretch in the NFL. Just ask Denver.

Re: Looking at the schedule...

I'm WAY more scared of Philly's D than the Cowboy's D. They are generating a lot of sacks and I'm pretty sure their coverage is a lot better than the Cowboys.

That being said, the Cowboys put a lot of points up on them too (and Bears INCLUDING the end zone INT by Orton) so I really don't know how to feel.
