That is my point about being concerned about the team. WE need to score more if we are going to make a serious run. We will not beat The Steelers with only scoring 14 or the Gmen in round #2 for that matter.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

You know what ? I know what 52-7 felt like. I remember what 36-0, 37-0, 45-10, and 41-7 felt like too. Those were a list of a couple other times the Skins were blown out dating back to 1998. I wonder if their fans gave a shit how WE felt. FUCK THEM. If the players feel like shit, sorry. You don't care about the opponent when you're celebrating either. No one is saying to go for it on 4th down like Belibitch did last year while running the score up. If they get blown out then they do. But to say that I should have some kind of remorse because I know what it's like as a fan to watch a blow out ? Hell fuck ass no !

I hope the Skins beat the Dogshit out of the Lions on Sunday, just like I hope for every game.

A) This thread should be locked. Nothing being discussed here that can't fit in another thread.

B) We aren't scoring nearly enough, so I am concerned.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

Re: Blowing out Detroit

we've lost to one winless team this season, i dont want to make it two....

offense, get the head, out of the ass... convert key third downs and put TD's on the board... Suisam, stop missing FG's. one per game is not going to cut it man ....

whoever said we are not capable of putting up 35 points .... thats a joke... the talent on this team, coach zorn included, can do that EVERY game if they executed properly.


If we don't win this week by a few, and dominate the game, i would be more concerned than I am now with leaving teams in games. B/C down the stretch that won't fly... but I beleive in Zorn fixing the scoring problem ASAP.
'Nuff Said.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

Let's also remember just like arizona for some reason detroit can never beat us. So just this once cause the lions are much worse than the rams and browns, Let' stick it to 'em stop being vaginas and really kick there ass before we really have to play against pittsburgh.

We have'nt so far but, We're capable a couple plays here and there and we could've pulled away in most of our wins. Let's take the no one touched reggie brown play for example. Or going prevent against the cowboys and saints and giving them points, Hell if Portis does'nt fumble no reason we don't keep runnning and win 21-3. We can do it just need a couple breaks.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

That loss to the Cowgirls in '89 STILL hurts. Shut up about it.

We WON'T be the 1 win for Detroit this year (if they get one). They're far worse than even that Dallas team.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

Well... I really don't care that other fans should be upset if we blow them out. If there had been a pats fan last year that told me he was sorry and thought his team was classless I'd have thought he was a bitch.

I was upset @ the fourth down play in the redzone up by >30 pts. That was just absurd and showcasing the fact that they had no respect for us at all. It was a statement and I hope they get throttled by every team with a chance for decades to come.

I think we can blow them out with a little class, but at the same time I'm not gonna lose sleep if they get their feelings hurt.

If we don't stomp them, our team needs a lot of work. It won't be because they're a wounded animal. Unless they're a wounded bunny rabbit. They pretty much just die at the thought of being wounded.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

Without weighing in on whether this is a separate thread from the Skins v. Lions "predictions" thread, I think the points that (a) we have to be wary not getting too cocky about playing a team like Detroit which is utterly desparate for a win, and (b) our offense needs to get clicking.

It worries me that folks are talking about the Steelers game already. Don't get me wrong -- I think we will win and will likely win big. And we should -- our offense put up nearly 30 points on much better defenses so far this season. But we've got to stop beating teams so soundly in the statistics category without lighting up the scoreboard. We can't let Detroit hang around like we did the Rams, Cleveland, etc.

Did you forget that the Browns stomped the Giants the week befor they played us. I thought we could have scored more on the browns but I was happy with the win but to say we should have blown them out is a stretch after what they had done to the Giants.

Re: Blowing out Detroit

I doubt the team is looking ahead to Pitt, because we learned our lesson against the Rams. Expect a good effort by the Skins, here's to hoping our scoring offense finally shows up.

Are people forgetting that this is still a new offense and it will take time to get it going. We did not change the running playes and we see how that is working but the passing game will take some time to get all on the same page. I think we have allready out played ourself so far and it should only get better as JC and the WR's get flowing in the WC offense. How many people where saying it could take a year or more to see this WC O start to gel. Alot and I think we have surprised people with how well we are actually doing.
