They need to drop at least 40 on the Browns.
To me, aside from generating more pass rush, this needs to be the primary focus right now. Prior to this week the problem was settling for too many FG's when driving into the red zone/scoring position. This week it was turning it over when driving.

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

There seems to be a lot of talk about what we should do as fans , as if WE are playing the game. Unless I'm at the game, I don't think it matters if I'm juggling cats or screaming my lungs out. It does'nt matter if I'm flippant or deadly serious, it's not going to affect the outcome of the game. What's important is that the PLAYERS understand they need to take each opponent seriously, not me. Before this game this was a team that was happy and feeling good about themselves, just as we were feeling about them. It's natural and was well deserved. I consider this game as "growing pains". Unless they're stupid, and I don't think they are, they will learn from this. If we, the team, don't grow, we're not going anywhere. A good team improves as the season goes on. I believe we will do that. This , after 6 weeks, cannot be the finished product. We will continue to learn and improve, and yes have growing pains, but by the end of the season we should look better than when we started. If we won games like this, I believe the team would grow complacent and that would lead us to look like the Cowgirls always look at the end of the year. We deserved to lose because of turnovers and penalties, not because of what I, or anyone else on this board said.

I'm not trying to tell anyone how to act. Speculation and over-excitement is expected amongst die hard fans when our team is 4-1 and rolling. I was simply sharing the way I approach each week.

I guess my real point is I hope some people around here learned that wins are never a foregone conclusion, regardless of opponent. Nor should we take it easy on the team after this awful loss just because we looked good for the 4 weeks prior. We came out flat, we looked bad on special teams and offense, and blew it at home to a winless team. As a fan I'm hopeful, but also staying humble.

Obviously the way we act as fans has no bearing on the outcome of the game.

I sure am glad Dallas is wetting the bed.

Maybe I'm sadistic but I LOVED seeing Wade Phillips jumping around like they just won the Super Bowl after the fieldgoal then losing the game.

At least we will be going into next week's game ready to whoop the Browns' asses to relieve some anger from today's loss.

This Sunday at 4 o'clock will be a very bad day to be a Browns fan.

Amazing. This is the attitude so many of us had going into today's game. Good thing we learned a lot from assuming a victory.

Yeah we'll probably lose now. I'm just getting a little fired up GMScud, it'll be alright.

Sadistic? Hell no brother! I think everyone who isn't a Cowboys fan got a huge kick outta that. TO with another bad game. He's had 3 or fewer catches in 4 out of their 6 ballgames. Implosion is imminent. God that makes me happy.

Re: The Skins Won't Win Another Game!

They got it together at the end, but it was too late. Couple sacks would have iced it for the Skins at the end, but not much of a pass rush, which has always been our Achilles heal today. Still, the sloppy play was inexcusable. We better put up 30+ up on the Browns and Lions. We need to "pad" our record before we face the Steelers.

Sorry, not buying that lame-ass excuse.

What evidence do you have to support the fact that certain players on the team were overconfident heading into this game? Do you have any names of players who played well below what we would expect from them?

I think there are legitimate analytical reasons for the loss today, but we don't need that half-ass media excuse garbage on this board.

Turnovers, yes. Was Carlos Rogers looking past them when he shut down Torry Holt? Was the defensive front looking past them when they pressured and hit Bulger all day making him cower after his throws? Did Portis and the OL overlook the Rams when they were chewing out 5+ yards per carry? Was Pete Kendall overlooking the Rams when he tried to advance a pass he caught?

We did MOST things on the field today just as well as we had been doing them over our first 5 games. We simply 1) turned the ball over too much, and 2) did not protect the quarterback vs. a very impressive pass rush.

Neither of those things constitutes overlooking the Rams. I agreed with you that we probably outplayed them, but they played well enough on defense to keep a single fluke touchdown as the margin of victory.

Agreed. We had 368 total yards to their 200. We had the ball longer, ran for twice as many yards, had fewer penalties, and didn't allow an offensive TD. I'd say 19 out of 20 times that will win you a ball game. I'll also say turning it over 3 times in your opponents territory on what seem like imminent scoring drives will lose you the game 19 out of 20 times.
