It's a good time to be a Skins fan. A good time indeed.
this year thus far has a real nice feel to it thats for sure and for me i,m just taking it all in and hope it continues...down 14 they just chipped away and then they turned it on shows me that they have a alot of maturity and a close knit team. they also like to play for zorn too. i,m still feeling a bit zorny..hip hip hooray - hip hip hooray - hip hip hooray..

keep it up boys..

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

I just heard on ESPN that Brian Westbrook fractured a couple of ribs in the game yesterday, sorry, no link on this yet. I'm sure it will come up as another excuse as to why the Eagles lost.

D. Thomas needs to get his head in the game. His penalties week in and week out are adding up.

I still can't believe the refs blew the whistle on ARE. I thought that should have been a TD. I don't see where he got touched at all.
That's what I'm saying people these games were a bad call or a bounce of the ball here or there of being blowouts. In reality we manhandled the eagles.

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

I note that some of the Eagles' fans boards are filled with whining about how they should have won, Reid has lost it as a coach, McNabb has no touch, etc. Do these guys realize that but for two blown calls by the officials -- one which allowed for the return TD and another that negated a Randle El TD by calling him down -- the score of the game is 30-10? I guess not.

It was an impressive win for the Skins. We have a real coach and a real QB, a lead RB that wants to put the hurt on people, and a defense that wants not just to bend, but force 3 and outs every series (including 5 in a row yesterday!)

Now they just need to keep their heads and go about their business.

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

You're right Matty, it is a good time to be a Skins fan. Redskin fans in this area have their cars decked out with Redskin flags and such. My girlfriend called me from Virginia Beach today to tell me about this car that had" The cowboys suck and the eagles do too" on the back windshield. It's nice to run into people you don't know with their Skins gear on, and see smiling faces, and have happy conversations about how well this team is doing. I use to take up for the Skins when I only half believed what I was saying. I don't have to do that anymore. This feels so good. The Washington Redskins are a good team. People KNOW it, instead of HOPE it. It is a good time to be a Skins fan.

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

skins had a real coach last year,winning 3 sbs is tough.i think coach zorn just sees and feels the nfl of the modern era a lot better than coach gibbs did.like i stated before,i don't think gibbs could have taken this year's team on the road and play like the skins have the last 2 weeks.

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

Gibbs built this team. He made the Skins a family again and gave us our heart back. Zorn is just making it beat...

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

I remember when folks were saying that we would be lucky to be 3-2 and more likely we would be 2-3. Well how do you like us now!!!

That's got to say something about our draft the last few years. A few FA's sat yesterday...Springs, Washington, Taylor, Daniels..........
You forgot about DE Carter. It think he was drafted by the 49ers.

A couple of my observations:
1) DT Griffen of course is our rock, but Golsten, Montgomery and Alexander are quietly doing a very good job stuffing the run. Since the Giants game debacle the DL has stopped the run.

2) Teams are staying away from LeRon Landry. You never hear his name called for anything bad. He is also quietly doing a great job.

3) Our small little smurf receivers are playing good enough to win. Who said we NEEDED tall Wr's? It is not a necessary thing. I think our passing game in past years suffered from poor QB play and very conservative play calling. Not our WR play. I think our little Wr's are good.

4) Cooley made some really great blocks yesterday. I have been a critic of his blocking skills, right fully so, he has not always been very good. But he made some great blocks yesterday.

5) OL is far exceeding my expectations. Especially in run blocking. Wow!

6) Save the big one for last: MLB Fletcher is amazing. That open field tackle of RB Westbrook was the highlight of the game for me. Defense Wins Championships and ours is getting strong.

For some reason Chris Horton impressed me almost as much yesterday as the first few games of the year. That tackle on Deshean Jackson was impressive, maybe saving a big play. He flew in, slid, and tripped him up. His speed is impressive.

Devin Thomas is huge. Maybe just standing next to ARE and Moss? He could be something if he can stop pushing off. Good to see him catch a couple.

The ref's were horrible yesterday. The kickoff return...horrible call. The ARE catch...he didn't get touched and would have gone for a score. Here's an idea, how about not blowing the whistle til your pretty sure he's down. All of the skins players said they didn't hear a whistle til ARE had run another 20 yards. Huh? Blown calls...horrible.

Suisham...damn, he had a great game. I won't mention the worst kickoff i've ever seen since he did everything else well.

JC is starting to remind me a little of Ben Roeth. Maybe I'm off base, but I always thought he had the potential but needed better pocket awareness/presence/footwork & playmaking ability. I think he's getting some of that now.
OMG! The refs yesterday had me outta my seat and yelling so loud I think my neighbors heard me! How can a side line jugde who clearly had line of visio on that kick return throw a flag for block in the back. And then they just pick it up!?? "there is no foul on the play" Bullshit!
And the ARE should have clearly been a freakin TD. But noooo...the ref got ahead of himself and blew the damn whistle.
If you think of it that way...the game score would have been 30-10!

You've said this before and it really annoys me. Moss might be short, but he's also 205lbs of muscle who made some great blocks and tackles yesterday while he was being double teamed. He is no smurf !!!! ...

Re: Random Thoughts From The Eagles Game

  • We're winning close games and that's a good thing but I want to start seeing blowouts in the next 3 games.
  • Cooley has gotten better as a blocker. He's taking on DE better and he's moving to the second level with authority.
  • JC is on track to be sacked 25 this season. I would like to see that number reduced.
  • I want to see more two back sets with Portis and Betts. I would also like to see Sellers fed the ball more.
  • I feel good about this team, hopefully we can continue to play at a high level.

You know, I knew Andre Carter was a FA but left him out for some reason.
