THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

I got this from Doc, and Kevin on 980am, and thought it worthy.
I have not felt this positve about the Skins since Joe1. We are not there yet. BUT, it is the difference in hoping we can win , and knowing we can win.
Hoping we can contend with the Eagles, and knowing we can.
Hoping we can hang on to protect a lead, and knowing they can put up more!
Your thoughts?

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

I'm only 25, so it's the best I've felt since 91. I was so youn then (8-9) that when they won the Super Bowl, I dug it, but not as much as I do now.

My older years, I have felt a lot of heartbreak and disappointment.

That could still come this year, but it certainly feels different.

Ever. I've only been following the team since 2001 though, so that might be the reason.

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

Last I felt this level of optimism was probably the Bucs game, season opener for Gibbs 2.0. After seeing CP rip a 64 yd TD run first touch and beating a good team with solid play I thought we were going to automatically start winning superbowls.

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

since joe gibbs announced he was coming back to the skins in 2004.i don,t have that superbowl feeling as of yet but the feeling thus far thru 4 games feels great and i hope they can keep it going....if they return to form all the way then i will be tickled burgundy and gold for sure.

this is best i have felt since the last time we won the nfc east and maybe it to the second round of the playoffs...

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

With the way the team finished the regular season last year, I was feeling pretty good about their chances of making a deep playoff run.

As far as feeling this good about the team this early in the season, I'd have to go back to '99.

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

i havent felt this kind of optimism since the ole' ball coach came in and lite it up during the preseason, we all the know the rest of the story thoo.

Zorn is what I had hoped for in spurrier but without all the hype and hoopla. I have always felt we have had a solid D group so I guess having a coach who brings the possibility of revamping our offense excites me. i havent checked but im pretty sure after that spurriers first pre-season here people had very high expectations for the offense to become a point scorer to compliment our always solid D. itd be interesting to see what threads were started back in preseason compared to threads about 8 games into the season.

go skins!!

I'm with you on that. This is the most positive I've felt about our direction and roster though.

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

I agree with hess. However, even though there is still alot of football to be played I haven't felt this way since '91. Even in '91, at the age of 13 going on 14 I didn't really understand what was going on but I just knew they would win every game. I know they were better than everyone else but I didn't know why I felt like that. Now at the age of 31, with a better understanding of the game it scares me to feel this way. I've spouted off at the mouth with "we'll do this and that" but I REALLY feel like they can win against any team in the league right now but I'm trying to keep a level head about this. I don't get too caught up in the rankings and all because all I know is that EVERYONE picked the Skins to be last in the division. They were called the doormats of the East. I want the analysts to keep on putting the next opponent on a pedastal only for the Skins to knock them down. I hope they can be there when it's all said and done with The Danny holdin up the Lom.... sorry.

Philly is up next week. It's only week 5 but it feels like 1991 all over again.

Hail To The Redskins !!!

The Return of the Gibbs.

I'm somewhere in between euphoric and cautious. I'm thrilled with how the team is playing and there is every indication they will continue to play well. However, it's week 5, we got killed in week 1, and it's a long season.

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

The thing that makes me fell good about the Redskins thus far is play calling, and execution. If a team has good play calling, but can't execute, they will not go anywhere. That is something that excites me, and makes me feel very good about this season. Having said that, its only week 5.

Re: THIS is the best you have felt about the Skins since?

To be honest I am not extremely excited yet. Now if we beat Philly, then I am ready to say I am pleased. As of now the only really "upset" in my mind was beating Dallas. If we can beat two powerhouses, on the road, two weeks in a row then I am ready to start feeling great about us.
