Lastly the play calling is seriously lacking and Campbell is reverting to his old ways.

I'm afraid that when this team faces a top tier defense, its gonna lose. We struggle against marginal teams (Seahawks, Browns, Rams, and Lions). I feel we have the talent to beat any team in the NFL, but I don't know whats the problem. My Questions: why can't Davis seem to find his way on the field vs. Yoder? Is there a rule that no more than 1 rookie can be on the field on offense at a time on our team? Why is Campbell still force feeding double covered targets? Does our line seem to get beat way too much in pass coverage? Lastly why does this offense still look the same as last years, and why are people actin like Mike Sellers as a target is something new? Gibbs used him alot! Do we just have too many weapons, they don't know how to utilize them all.

If we face the Giants like we played the Seahawks we will get beat. Please warpath ease my fears? Am I trippin, or am I justified in worrying?
I think you just need to realize what type of team we are. We're simply not good enough to go in and dominate anyone. We don't have the personel to do that. Just be happy that we beat a good team on the road and we're 7-4. Jeez....

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

Teams are in the league to win the Superbowl, not to get to the playoff and fade away. We Won... so what! we should have won, we have to see ourselves as a good team, a championship caliber team and act like it. If you told me to look at the Giants roster or the Titans roster, I would tell you neither is a championship team or a good team. But they win... why because they have high exspectations. We have to raise our level of play in my opinion. We have too much talent to be strugglin like we are.

We have 4 picks the last two games and generated some pressure yesterday with some blitzes.They have played extremely well all season. As far as Fred I wouldn't worry about the defense. Davis...apparently he doesn't know what to do and when to do it. Zorn is not going to play him if he isn't 100% mentally ready. Yoder is a fairly decent blocker. We are 7-4, I dont see why everyone is so down. Would any of you have thought we would be 7-4 right now, honestly...with a new Head coach..a rooking head coach at that. Who would have thought Campbell would be playing the way he is playing. I think he has been playing very very good. He isn't forcing balls that I can see. I see the exact opposite, not taking chances like some other QB's in the league do. I think we are definately moving in the right direction. The offense is new to everyone, Zorn tried to keep most of the running the same because that is what the Oline is built to do. Sign of a good coach if you asked me.
people just need to relax. we are a decent football team, not great, probably not really good, but we are good enough to make the playoffs. And a team that can run the ball like we can, and play defense like we can, can cause trouble in the playoffs.
The defense has simply been outstanding. End of discussion.

one more thing I sorry but I don't buy that Davis, a college educated Mackey Award winnig tightend, who has been in a the pro-offense his whole college career. Played football his whole life can't get this offense. I think we have a Vet- preffered coach.

How did NY win the SB? They have people on their front 7 that can dominate. They can get after the QB with 4 guys. We can't do that. They have a better O-line. They have more playmakers on offense. Like him or not when Burress feels like playing, he's one of the top wr's in the NFL. He can take over a game. We don't have anyone at the wr position that can do that.

Tenn hasn't won anyhting yet so I'm not crowning them. But I will say they have guys on their D-line and front 7 that dominate. We don't have a player like Hansworth.

I agree with you. We need to get him on the field more. If he can't get the playbook then the coaches need to do a better job explaining the shit to him. That's on the coaches as much as it is on Davis.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

We don't have a O lin or a D lin. Our QB is average at best. WR's would be 2nd and 3rd if even playing for other teams. Our special teams is not very special and our D backs are getting exposed. The only player on this team that is worth a dam is Clinton Portis. By the time we get all the other player we need CP will be slowing down and near retiring. We also need to revamp our coaching staff and we will never make it to a SB as long as Snyder owns this team.

The Giants are not unbeatable. I hope they think they are. They are an excellent team but they have been beaten. They're not undefeated. The way Portis is running right now and Kelly getting on the field make us more competitive than the first time we played them. Will it be easy? No. Can it be done? Yes.
Good post. I too am glad to see Sellers more involved. If Kelly can step up and be the bigtime red zone threat, we may make some noise against the G-men. The DBs cannot drop 4 INTs as they did in the first meeting in NY. Lastly, it's put up or shut up time for Jason Taylor to make a contribution, starting this Sunday. He could be an X-factor if he can get in Eli's face.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

Reading some of these posts, you would think the Redskins had just lost and the playoffs are in jeopardy. Chill Out! Being a Redskins fan, you had better get used to sitting on the edge of your chair. It's a rollercoaster ride and hopefully when they let us off, the Skins will be in the playoffs. Then it's a new season. Anything can happen. Ask the Giants.

I think they (the Skins) started using Taylor like Miami did and put him as a LB last week against Seatle and he managed 1 sack. More then he has had the whole time he has been with us. I think they need to utilize this more and put Wilson at DE.
