We are not looking like the team that started 6-2, but the team that finished 2-6 in 2008 thus far.
He could be referring to us sweeping the Eagles last year

That would be nice bud, but we should have swept Dallas many times since Gibbs II only to piss victory away. I guess I am to pessimistic and have seen to many BS games where we should have kicked their asses only to f it up somehow. And when I talk about Philly I am not talking about last year but over the last say 10 years. We have a crappy intradivisional record even when we were better on paper.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

We only go 5-1 if we can score more than 9 points a game. Preferably at least three TDs a game. But, if we can mysteriously fix our red zone woes this week, who knows?

yes, yes you are.

but, the question was could we go 5-1 (granted I stretched it to the bye which started the division talk). We don't play Dallas till late November, and who knows which team or both will be screaming for a new head coach/qb (yes after losing to the giants cowpoke fans were saying the same basic thing about their coach).

So Yes we can go 5-1, and we should go 5-1, and then We just need to pheed vick to the dogs!

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Dude we won't go 5-1 just for the fact that we should do so. That is my whole point. We never beat or sweep our rivals when we are supposed to or more to the point are more loaded with talent than they are. Yeah we swept Philly last season, but nobody thought we could. Philly was relatively a healthy team, etc. Now they are beat up, you think hell yeah we will kick their asses only to split the series or get swept. Same thing with Dallas and the Gmen. Like the guys say one game at a time, but recent history tells me anything can happen on any given Sunday. We can beat a team we are supposed to lose to or lose to a team we are supposed to destroy.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

We may still be the 2-6 team we hoped was left behind last year. After that 9-7 win, I'm going to be scared of Detroit. There are always upsets and we seem to be the one everybody picks on. The 'Skins just can't seem to play with much agression. DeAngelo Hall better get his act together or our secondary is going to blow up this season. So it's more than just the offensive line that needs help.

Which is about the time when Dallas packs it up for the season each year. Where is the broom emoticon?

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

It looks good now, but with our Offense, I say no. Detroit is alot better this season, and TB always plays us pretty good.. 4-3 at the break is what i'm saying..

For real though, enough with this hypothetical BS. If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we'd all be fat MFers.
You are definitely one of the more entertaining guys on this site.

But as for 5-1.. Yeah we COULD. But we probably won't. I'm thinking 3-3 or 4-2.

Funny thing is. I think people who are not Skins think the same thing. We have a habit of playing to the level of our competition. But that might workin our favor. Teams will be like. Who did they beat? Just the Rams and the lions, Next week they will say. Who did they beat? They will say just the rams, lions and bucs. So we could get to the the Atlanta or Eagles game and people will stillbe like. They started of fast last year. So they are probably still a horrible team. No one fears us and our opponents are weak. But that might help us in the end. I think the defense will step up during this time span as they continue to jell with AH. The offense can only get better. I truly believe that. There is no where to go but up when your at the bottom.

Think about it

Think about it
Maybe I'm crazy but so do I. I don't see anything that isn't correctable and we have plenty of talent. Blache seemed to be running better blitz packages this last game and JC was moving the ball up and down the field. We're throwing more and opening up the offense. This is an improvement. I expect both sides of the ball to get better the more we play. There is obviously some redzone work to do and because we've had trouble scoring TD's the coaches are spending more time on it and examining it a lot more closely. Good. We should get pretty good at it. This is a very good d-line we have and I expect we'll get even more pressure on the QB and create more turnovers, as you said, as they continue to jell. The goal is to continue to get better as the season goes along and hit your peak going into the playoffs. I believe we will.

We forget that last season some of us were talking about how Hassleback, McNabb, and others familier with the WCO say it takes 2-3 years to run it efficiently. JC has had 1 full season and 2 games with it and I see a lot of improvement so far. I just hope we don't blow this thing up before we're able to reap the benefits.
