This team would probably have trouble with some of those teams. I can see Jeff Garcia picking this team to shreds.

It may be a little off topic but to me Redskins & West Coast offense don't belong together. I hve been following the Redskins for over 40 years and we always ran the ball well until Zorn became the coach. We should be running an air Correyll (sp) offense with a big bruiser for a running back.

I couldn't agree more!! This team should be like the Chargers, Air Coryell offense is the way to go, power football and bombs downfield and a 4-3 defense. None of this finesse BS offense.

Shanahan is known for play action and bombs downfield. The Coryell needs even more elite talent on the O-line than the WCO.

When does this crap end? Every single year we're the least talented and apparently the least motivated. There's something that just isn't right about this organization. No matter who we bring in, we still suck. And I mean we suck bad. Right now, this team is no better than they were under Zorn. The shit's 'fn' embarrassing. You guys that live in Redskins country think you have it bad, try being a displaced Redskins fan.

I'm starting to believe we're an NFC WEST team playing in the NFC EAST. IMO, we don't deserve to he in the NFC EAST. This team is disgracefully bad. And yeah, they're gonna get smoked by the Cowboys.
DM72, a while back I posted a similar thread, in which I compared the Redskins' winning divisional winning record in the last ten years against the Cowboys, Giants, and Eagles. As you can imagine, the Skins were very much at the bottom; no big surprise there. What was surprising, however, was the Redskins non-divisional record vs. the other NFC East teams. In that case, the Skins' winning percentage was much closer to the other teams, and in fact, very comparable to the Giants and Eagles. Whether the statistics mean anything or not (and I'd like to re-research them, but I just don't feel like putting in the effort), the fact is that for 10 years the Redskins have, on average, sucked against their divisional rivals. While the other teams step up, the Redskins seem to step down. At least the statistics support that conclusion; whether or not you want to read into them like that is up to you.

The most frustrating thing of course is that the East is the most intense division in football. In no other division do the teams and their fans have as much animosity for all of the other teams in the division as the teams in the NFC East do. And when you're the doorstop of the division for ten years, it just becomes un-f***ing-bearable.

Re: Anyone Else Get The Feeling That We Don't Belong In The NFC EAST?

all i know is even though we have a better record than last year, but we look just as bad if not worse than last year. i just don't know how to feel about this team anymore. i'm not going to jump of the bus but i'm gonna get real cozy in the back of this bitch til we turn this thing around. people can say what they want about it just being a game, but in this day and age it really isn't for some people. there are a lot of people like me and alot of others on this board that live and breath football, and mostly redskins football. it's just deppressing to watch and almost unbearable, it's said to see where this team has gone in the past few years. yeah we haven't really been the cream of the crop the past decade but we were in the discussion atleast. now the only discussions we are in are the ones about a team thats on a roll settign records against us.

TMC said it in another thread today and i agree i have never in my life in any sport seen any one team allow every single team they play to set all sorts of milestones and records. it really is sad, just sad. i really hope we can accomplish somthing towards the end of the season and during the offseason i really do, i just don't see it happening.

Don't belong in the NFC East because it's so good and we suck? It's not even the second best division in the NFC this year.

Maybe Shanahan needs a little more time to grow accustomed to coaching in the NFC East. It's a big difference in comparison to the AFC West. It's going to take time to get this ship righted.
