Could the Redskins go 5-1?

A lot of fans are showing their disapproval lately. Standing up booing the Skins. I am all for this if it makes them play harder. But where were the fans last year when Pittsburgh took over our stadium? Just had to get that off my mind. I like the comments the irrate fan left on Cooleys blog better. Anyways enough foolishness.

We are a work in progress folks. We have progressed from the first game. Our O played better as well as our D. We moved the ball down the field and played better on defense and applied a little more pressure. Interesting tidbit. Dallas has not recorded a sack yet. We atleast have 2 (as dismal as that may sound).

Our remaining schedule:

Detroit: 0-2
Bucs: 0-2
Panthers: 0-2
Chiefs: 0-2

All of these teams are on the verge of imploding. I know we have the tendency to play to the level of our competition. But last year we lost to the Rams. We won this year. We now see San Fran is not as bad as we thought they were. Or the Bengals for that matter, still should have won those games, from the results we've seen from these teams this season so far. Saying that we need to win these games. I dont care if it is by 1 point. If we are 5-1 going into Philly. I will feel a lot better.

I know the team is looking like roadkill and the playcalling and players have not been in sync. But saying that. We have 4 games to improve. So hopefully each we we will progress to the point where we are going to clicking by the time we reach Philly. We have progressed from week1 to week 2 so hopefully we can keep it going. Just a thought.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

I am still calling for 5-2 at the bye week. One of the 0-2 teams will get us, but we own Philly. From that point, it's time to man up, and play with the big boys. Bring it on!

Certainly 5-1 is possible, needless to say we need a lot of improvement in the RZ.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Anything is possible. I could cut my junk off and call myself Nancy. The Redskins have a better chance of going to the Superbowl this year than that ever going down.

For real though, enough with this hypothetical BS. If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we'd all be fat MFers.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Yes, we could. But we could also go 1-5. Seriously, with this team, you NEVER can tell. They've certainly got the talent to go 5-1, but they've got an amazing ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory--even, paradoxically, in a win!

One game at a time, fellas.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Lets hope our offense use the next four games as an enimic person would use iron to strenghthen his blood. We are not bad we are on the verge of exploding on offense I no u guys felt it. I was loving the exacution, but our red zone was enimic, yes we all seen it. Im thinking we should start taking shots at the 25-30 yard line. We missed out on 21 pionts yes I know but in two months if the Rams are on some type of roll, then we will look back on this game as a good deffensive game which it was so I feel good about my Redskins but Im the type of fan that thought after CC47 TD catch last week. we still had a chance to win with an on side kick and quick TD strike. Well what i mean we have a very good chance at 5-1.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

This is a very important stretch for us.

We have to put away the awful teams.
Also, It's a key point in the year where it gives JC the opportunity to get in rhythm to we can go into the more difficult games with some momentum.

If JC can't come out of that stretch looking sharp, Then he probably shouldn't be on the team next year.
Same goes for Zorn.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

5-1 sounds about right. Just enough to get the fans in a frenzy right before our annual November collapse . Actually, looking at the schedules, there's a good chance that when we play each of our next four games, all four teams will be winless win they face us.

Seriously though, with the way our second half schedule looks, we're going to need that kind of start to have legit postseason ambitions.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Personally the prospect of 5-1 is quite possible but we need to get the offense going. I think that winning the Philadelphia game is big and i would sacrifice a loss to one of the potential wins to beat them. I would guess we could be 5-2 or 6-1 but after a bye, how many wins are we going to get? Im still thinking we are a 9 or 10 win team IF we get the wins we should have during this stretch.

We own Philly? When the hell have we ever owned Philly, even when we had the talent advantage? We split with Philly and Dallas. Hopefully we can against the Gmen also, but I am not holding my breath. Unless coach gets his playcalling problem fixed and certain individuals earn their overbloated salaries we go 4-3 before the bye. We are not looking like the team that started 6-2, but the team that finished 2-6 in 2008 thus far.

We swept Philly last year. And I predict we sweep Dallas this year.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

The only game I have confidence of us winning is next week vs the Lions there is no guarantee we will win either. Delhomme sucks, but Carolina still is a solid team. TB is probably a win, unless we play like we just did. Chiefs are going to be much improved I think by the time we play them, maybe Carolina also. Bottom line is we get the red zone problem fixed ASAP and the issue is moot and we just still might take the division.

He could be referring to us sweeping the Eagles last year
