Re: Looking at the schedule...

If we can get a W this weekend in Philly I'll start to feel pretty optimistic about this season and our schedule. But after the choke act we pulled in 96' I won't start counting our chickens until they hatch ever again.

The positive is Bulger and company are still struggling in digesting that infamous 700 page playbook.
Al may know Greg's defense, but Greg definitely knows Al's offense. Advantage - no one.

Re: Looking at the schedule...

We do have a favorable schedule coming up and should be no worse than 6-2. It's also pretty exciting to have the NFC East road games out of the way already and we're not even to Columbus Day.

No doubt. They are currently #1 in the league in sacks, and #1 against the run. Their LBs are playing fantastic, and despite a shaky outing in the 1st half against Chicago, their secondary is very good. Not to mention they are playing at home and will have a big chip on their shoulder after that loss on national TV on Sunday night. This game concerns me.

If Westbrook doesn't play that will really help, but Jim Johnson's blitz schemes make me fear for Jason's life.

I'm not looking at any game on the schedule except this one.

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!"

I agree here. But I said to myself sunday before the game against dallas "if we can beat dallas, we can beat anyone." I hope this stands true. Jim zorn has made me a believer. I think the playoffs are a chance this year.

Hail to the redskins!

How does ME looking down the road lessen the Redskins chance of winning this week? The TEAM needs to stay focused on Philly but I can dream of a 7-1 start all I want.

The real question is how many wins will it take this year to make the playoffs? I'm not so sure that 10 will be enough.

Re: Looking at the schedule...

It's looking very good. However has anyone heard if Springs will be back? Cause if he plays jackson like he played t.o. I don't know how philly will score if westbrook stays out. And how about jason taylor I have'nt heard how he's progressing?

According to JZ, he is supposed to start running today.

My bet is Taylor will be back sooner rather than later.

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.
you just said what i was going to say but better and shorter . . so thanks. cautiously optimistic.

go skins!!
