I agree, but winning ugly is not really an option in our division, or more importantly getting to be the NFC rep in the SB.

Re: Redskins vs. Browns gameday thread

At the beginning of the season I thought if we could go 3-4 or 4-3 at this point, we would be in good shape with the rest of our division games at home. After going 4-1 I thought, damn this offense is already playing well, we're going to start beating the hell out of people soon. But other teams are getting better too, and we are still in only our 7th game in this offense. Portis is having a monster year and our D is playing lights-out. At this pace I think we will be playing our best football during the last half or quarter of the season. I still think we'll get better but 5-2 sure ain't bad.

Not at all 53. But I don't think we can use the 2000 Ravens as inspiration. Our D is good, but not air tight as the Ravens D was that year. There will be games where our D is going to have to create turnovers to give us a shot at winning if our O can't put points on the board. THe Pitsburgh game is going to show our true colors.

Just got home from the game, man that was a good game. Just curious, did anyone see Portis throw his helmet after his fumble. He threw it off a case and it must of bounced 20 feet in the air.

Oh I agree. I don't see much comparison between us and the 2000 Ravens. For one thing I think that would be an insult to our players on offense. Our offense must get better, and I might be in the minority but I believe it will. To me using the Ravens as inspiration would suggest giving up on the offense. That would be a mistake. If the offense were in the mindset of just MANAGING the game, I think we would be in trouble. Zorn wants an aggressive offense. We'll get there.

Re: Redskins vs. Browns gameday thread

My point in bringing up the Ravens was different.

I agree that our offense is much better. I thought that I said this above. Our superior offense leaves us on the better side of the comparison. And our offense will get even better with time.

I also agree that the 2000 Ravens defense was tight and scored more points than the 2008 Redskins. But that's where our more potent offense comes in...

The main point of my comparison is that Super Bowl champs often win ugly, too. Winning ugly is not necessarily a problem.
