The win over the Gnats and pulling one out late against the Cards has alone exceeded my expectations. They are still relatively tempered but things are looking up.

Wow! Nobody is more of a kool-aid drinker than me, but I'm just cautiously optimistic. I still think at best 8-8 to 9-7. That will depend largely on how healthy this team stays.

I had us split in the NFCE (3 games), the Cards (4 games), Rams (5 games), Panthers, Bills, 49ers (8 games), Miami and Seatle (10 games), I'm thinking possibly the Vikes and Bucs also. I'm not saying we will win 12 games but that gives us a cushion for is we lose one I'm expecting us to win. The losses I figured would be Giants (which maybe we take both), Dallas (we might take both), Eagles, Jets, Patriots, Pitt, Baltimore, and I had the Colts but they look horrid.

Can anyone not possibly see 11-5 and our losses being Eagles (1), Jets, Patriots, Steelers, Ravens? I keep hoping no major injuries.
as you alluded to some of those are no longer easy wins.. we also need to see how we come off of a loss.. or larger deficit than we've faced.. I have more confidence in us this year to battle past either situation.. this team seems to take football and winning personally

It's so funny seeing the oppressive Establishment being excessive cautious this year while the rational rebels like myself are fully in the Kool-Aid. The Establishment needs to get some new researchers to process the critical data, since they have missed two years in a row.

um...no, not even sure what it supposed to mean actually.



so far the skins have done what i thought they would do this year which is a first. we have a young team with a lot of guys fighting for spots on a roster, we got rid of all the malcontents and now are truly ready to move forward. the team finally shows some life and it appears as though everyone on both sides of the ball have bought into the systems they are playing and i think that says alot being only two years detached from whatever the hell we had going on the last year zorn was here. from where we are now we can only improve and who knows maybe we will be better than 8-8 this year which would make me happier than hell.

Since we don't play Pittsburg or the Ravens - I can see us not losing to them.

Re: I know it's only 2 games...

Ross Tucker has us at #12 in his rankings

I do like the fact that we are still a bit under the radar. However, a win against the Cowboys on MNF would definitely put us on the spotlight.

I need to know who the players are first. Are the opressive Establishment kin to the Axis of Evil or just Diet North Korea?

Re: I know it's only 2 games...

I voted exceeded my expectations only because we won the Giants game and vibe from the team is completely different for the first time in few years, which is amazing. I never have had felt this good about Redskins for a while.. As for how many wins we will get this year, it does not matter to me because Shanny and his team proved to me that the team is different this time and we can expect them to rally in some games AND win.
