Of course teams have days where they're just off. But with the Skins its either a good offensive team and a bad defensive team, a good defensive team and a bad offensive team, or just an all around bad team.

I have a bad memory to begin with, but I don't know when the last year was where the Skins had a fully rounded team where we were actually good, but just didn't have the gas to make it to the playoffs/not lose in the 1st round of the playoffs (or wildcard)

You better gas up the bandwagon cause Rex will start.

Rex stunk, and so did the O line. If the O line doesnt get better it wont matter who the QB is. I thought the D played pretty good.

THIS time...I really believe them. For the most part I like what they are doing. Overall the D played solid. Got nicked in the first, but stonewalled them in the second. Get a QB.......who knows.
AND if we had a QB which we no doubt will add in the off-season (starting or no), this game would have been radically different.
You'll be happy by your 25th Birthday!

Here's the truth, we beat bad teams and lose to good ones, we sometimes beat ourselves...that is NOT a playoff team, especially one with the most critical position being manned by a question mark.
It's not as bad as Spurrier's Danny Wuerful man-crush, but it is eerily similar.
2 arrogant offensive minded coaches thinking they can take a QB that no one else wants and turn them into stars.

This game reveals too much Shanny influence over the FO, not getting a good QB. It also reflects the FO not addressing Oline depth as much as we all shouted for...no backup Guard?....reallly?
Those were the 2 big questions I had with the squad going into the season.

I am glad Grossman was pulled, but I don't expect much better from Beck.
I do think that the coaches need to get austin and the other WR's out there too.

Not sure about anyone else but I've had enough of the shitty calls. WTF was that roughing the passer bullshit on Vick? It's every damn week the refs call that shit and it's just getting old. They do it on both sides. Let em play!
Honestly I don't know what to expect anymore. I'm sick of hearing about the brilliance of the great Shanahan. This guy's offense barely squeaks by lousy teams like the Cards and Rams and today even with two weeks to prepare for a reeling division rival, they look totally clueless out there.

Grossman is Grossman, he's a bad QB who occasionally gets lucky and has a good game. The great Shanahan chose to run his offense with that clown. Now he's getting what he paid for.

You can't get it all in one year. This years draft was the best draft this team has had in a long, long, long time.

We went primarily defense this year. We'll go primarily offense next year. The point is keep improving and I think we did that this year. Will we be good enough to make the playoffs, that remains to be seen. But this team is better - the Defense is MUCH better.

When we did try, we sucked. The O-line did not look good today.

But we did not try very hard. The second half was skewed by late passes but in the first half we passed 70% of the time.

Yes he did look bad. He had several inaccurate throws to open receivers. And he fumbled without getting hit.

Losing Trent and Cory did not help that cause...
Any word on TW?
