Haha I love our rational fanbase. Seriously going to blame the D for this one? Run D could've been a bit better but keeping the eagles to 20 is a big deal. They score alotta points.

QB, OLs, OC, WRs and RBs get blame before the D.

Only Achilles heel to our team is Grossman and our Dbs if they are put man on man. Eliminate those things and we are a better football team. A football team that probably would be undefeated.

Losing key O-lineman hurt. The running game seemed to never recover from that. We were getting a few yards here and there and as soon as Lich and T.Williams went down, that was the end of the run. Sucks. The Skins can't win without a running game.

Re: The Gameday Thread: Philly at Washington

I really hope we've seen the last of Grossman. He's not a 16 game starter. I like him as a back up but that's it. Too bad it took this game for the Shamahans to realize it. Should've benched him after last week.

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!

Vick was bitching about this in the media last couple of weeks, how he never gets flag for late hits.

A playoff appearance would be nicer. A solid one, not a, "we made it in by the skin of our teeth and know we shouldn't be here" kind of appearance. Ideally, I'd just like to see a solid team. 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!

The comment was that there was no reason with the amount of talent we have on the team that we shouldn't be a wildcard team, the response was, yeah, if we had a real QB, that is probably true...I agree with that...what I don't agree with is that this is a good team with Beck or Grossman...we have been talking about this all offseason, we're we a great 3-1 team?...no...are we a great 3-2 team?...probably not. 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.
