Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

The Skins are still way ahead of the game. I never thought they were going to win all 3 of their next games and IMO this is a good wake-up call for the players to realize they may not be as good as they think they are. The Skins will win their next 2 and go 2/3 for this stretch and trhat isnt too bad.

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

Skins beat themselves today, no question about that. You cannot have 3 turnovers AT HOME and expect to win. Great performance from the D all day until the end, but shit happens and there is a lot of football left to play. Game over, lets move on to the Browns and get a W.

I just think that somewhere down the line this loss is going to come back and bite us in the ass. It's a conference loss and anyway you look at it, we can't lose to the Rams at home.

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

Yes the Skins kept shooting themselves in the foot and we gave one away, but give some credit to the Rams Def and Haslet. He was a great motivator in NO and I think the players hated Linehan. Haslet had two weeks to prepare for us and he had his team fired up. This was almost their Super Bowl and the SKins played it like a preseason game for the first 3 quarters. If they keep playing opportunistic D and run Jackson more than they throw then Haslet might remove the interim tag and finish '08 7-9.

On the other hand, we won two games against conference opponents (Arizona and New Orleans) at home and two games, which almost no one thought we would win, against division opponents on the road. It certainly doesn't help to lose this game. Good teams win the games they're supposed to win. But, unless we start to free fall, this won't kill us. And we have far more important games than we've lost.

I had thought that Cleveland would be our trap game, but now I actually think we'll win the next three-including the Steelers game.

Yeah, me too. I was almost certain we'd have a poor showing vs. the Browns after punishing St. Louis. Hopefully it will just be the other way around.

It's one game. Just like the Giants, Saints, Cards, Cowboys, and Eagles game were all just one game, respectively.
we won those

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

Honestly our pass protection needs to get better, and our pass rush MUST get better. The only way we could bring heat on Bulger was by blitzing DBs.

I hope you're right Smoot. Right now I am looking at our next two games against the Browns, and Lions as "must wins" we can't afford to lose to anymore teams that have no business beating us, and if we do we're in big trouble because it's going to be hard to keep pace in this extremely competitve division and conference.

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

We did look past them a little, But for real we got some bad breaks and bounces today, The Pete Kendall thing c'mon thats shit for the twilight zone, I think we still have a very good squad that will continue to improve, This bump in the road could be exactly what we need to get to the next level. Then next time we have a little more urgency and won't go 4 wide and leave Campbell to be killed. We will be fine again theres not a game that scares me till we get dallas again, But maybe that ones not so scary after all. Let's keep it together Go Skins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

6 games into the season and the skins are 4-2. thats pretty good. turnovers got the better of the skins today, also the dropped ints by fletcher and landry didn't help.

Yeah, before today, this team hadn't recorded a sack in two games.

And, is it just me, or is Jason Taylor shaping up to be a ho-hum DE this year? Maybe he wasn't ready to come back from that injury. His presence hasn't exactly opened things up for Andre Carter either.

Seems like we have this problem year after year -- you've got to be able to get pressure from your front four without blitzing.

Did today's game scare you? Exactly.

I think the Redskins AND the fans would be well served to just take things one week at a time. I tried telling this to everyone when this site was being drenched in Kool Aid after last week's win. As far as The Warpath is concerned, hopefully it will be a lesson to all of those who keep looking ahead on the schedule and talking about 7-1... Worry about the game in front of you. Expectations are premeditated resentments.

I could care less about our next game against Dallas at this point. I'm focused on how we will respond to a bad, bad loss with another big opportunity to win at home next week.
