I sit here and watch the games we've played and i see this team bursting at the seams to be the team we want. Those red zone plays have really killed us, but progress is being made in my eyes, and yes i have had them checked and cleared 20/20 here. Our D is coming together our offense is still in search to find them selves I see us running the ball a hell of alot tomorrow. I feel good about the team even with all the stuff thats gone on this week Trust me you'll see.

you are very positive person when it comes to the skins. but with what i seen the last 3 games i cant see them coming out and playing a complete game.

There's a difference in that though too. Optimism is one thing, but you know you're drinking kool-aid when you're thinking the Skins are going to put up 30+ a game when we haven't done that in something like 20+ games I think it was I heard? I could be wrong.

Optimism is fine, but blind faith is dangerous and then people wanna say that because people are pointing out flaws in the team and saying okay we're facing XYZ team this week, and here are the reasons I don't think we'll win, they get accused of being a hater and they must not be true fans and they must want the Skins to lose.

I mean, come on. Really?

Your not wrong.

The last time this dreadful offense put up 30+, Mr. Joe Jackson Gibbs was still the Captain of the ship and we were heading to the playoffs.

And guess who the QB was...? Good guess Todd Collins! NOT SOUP.

We beat The Viks in Vik country 32-21, Week 16, Dec. 20/2007, with Todd Collins at the helm, thats the last time this team has posted over 30 points in any given game.

Coach Gibbs steps down after the Seattle loss in the playoffs.

Zorn is given the HC gig for the SKINS (Huge mistake a QB coach to O- Cordinator, oh change of heart I mean HC), then shortly after he marries SOUP, the marriage is now falling apart. They both suck, and will be out of DC shortly (Zorn before SOUP, but SOUP will follow!).

Now whos drinking kool aid...? Oh yea the Redskins, they are improving, getinng better and real close. To what I'm not quite so sure.

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

What do I expect in Week 5 vs the Panthers: Well after watching the last 4 games I see the offense struggling to run the ball and score points. I see our defense getting gashed by DeAngelo Williams which will set up the play action for Jake Delhomme to Steve Smith. Our offense starts out slow and we thus fall behind and our defense can not be as effective. I would love to see our defense play with a lead more often but it doesn't happen due to our lack of production from the offense. Our special teams never scores on returns or block punts. However we did score on a fake FG. This week will tell if our Redskins truly have a heart because no football experts think they can beat the Panthers. Only the Redskins players can change the National perception of them, which most people think they are awful. As being a long time fan for over 30years I just can't seem to quit on them. I just hope the players and coaches don't quit and come out fighting every Sunday as though it was their last. HTTR ( Skins4Ever)

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

I know it is like shooting fish in a barrel but the blind hopefuls really have no place pronogsticating here. I told a blind hopeful (Warpaint) that I would re-post his dream sequence prediction after the game and he'd either look like he was informed or completely clueless. I think we all know how this one turns out.

I'm actually disappointed because he promised me a win and I trusted him...he even said in bold to TRUST him...the guy betrayed my fan trust.

I predict redskins victory score I cant tell u but as long as we win and I do beleave in a way we have all been longing for an all out asskicking.

I'll re-quote what you said after tomorrow's game. You'll either look like you know what you're talking about or look completely clueless.

We'll see in 16 hours...I'm counting on you...don't let me down.

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

Skinny, maybe I will go back and get some of the absurd Hater posts and collect them. Like someone said the Panthers would run all over us. They didn't. Both offenses struggled. But the reality is what it is, we lost, and looked bad doing it. They won and looked pretty bad doing that. There are extremes on both sides of the hater/kool-aid divide, and I am generally on the kool-aid extreme. Let me ask you though: why put one fans nose in it when we all simply want the Skins to be back to a successful team?

Because he made me believe that we were going to win and he told me to Trust him.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt even though I knew full well that we don't have the facilities to do so. I took this guys blind hope over common sense and look what happens.

I just hope that doesn't happen to other Skins fans. Also I'd like people to be accountable for what they predict and not just swinging hope to the masses when it's obvious there was none.

Dude, its a prediction, and there's a reason most of us AREN'T picking on ESPN or something; we are biased. Being fans, we can see the talent and the hope and can see us winning. I predicted a win.

Just a guess, PREDICTION.......

Is it really necessary to call people out in hindsight over their predictions? Pretty retarded if you ask me.

I'm just letting all these fans know...take your Skins glasses off if you want to be taken seriously or make it seem like you know anything about football.

I'm tired of all these people operating off of their blind hope and we need fans to start thinking more judiciously when it comes to this team.

If there is one thing that this team needs right now it is a knowledgeable fan who can let Skins managment know that the product on the field is not compentent, nor is the managment structure.
