Really? I think it seems pretty rational to me that a team's aggressiveness is tied to how many points their opponents have scored or are capable of scoring.

Put it another way how many times previously did we have a 21 to 3 or 21 to 6 lead where the team needed to try and pass and score in order to beat us? Or how many times after a team took the lead did our offense regain the lead? Compare that with this year and our ability 2 compete in every game.

Well, like I said before, we would but some would accuse of us shutting down opposing thought (even though, contrary to belief, not all the mods agree with each other amongst ourselves).

I keep trying to just let this thread die..but it's like a phoenix

Maybe in the fourth quarter when the game is in the bag but i cant believe anybody and Again you are gameplanning your offense to go run or pass for the most part. Who in their rite mind isnt going to pass against us no matter who our qb is.
Edit: long live the Phoenix

4 of the last 7 games we played last year teams scored 30 or more points against us. Dallas put up 27. That was after our inept offense already played and showed we were incapable of putting up points. Hmmmm.

How would you define aggressive/attacking playcalling? And do you think this year's defense is worse than last year's?

Well passing is usually a sign of aggressive attacking playcalling - though with our d i think that is just the "easy" way. I mean wouldnt you pass on us? Yes i think this years d is the worst i ever remember.

Yeah, but our opponents were really, really conservative in those games. They didn't want to score 30+ points, it just happened!!

Just as Mike isn't a serious HC coach (anymore, just to give him the benefit of the doubt), his defenders lose the ability to make serious points.

10-6 record with a playoff appearance really isn't better than 5-11 record at the bottom of the division.

Teams didn't play hard against the Redskins until Mike wanted them to.

Give me a f*cking break. Some of you are embarrassing yourselves.

You know i usually try to remain neutral but wtf? The saints went 0-16 and than three years later were in the playoffs - and i am being told that is not a turnaround. Wow.
Teams were conservative playcalling last year against us. RG-3 and alfred morris are in essence the reason our defense sucks this year - that is some awesome logic. Just awesome.
Its like when one of my kids lies. I call them out so they make an excuse/ lie to cover up the first lie and it just snowballs until they dont know up from down. That is truely how i feel about arguing these two points.

Today i mended my brothers fence and took a shitload of firewood out to the old folks in one of the retirement villages. Also in the process of gathering/ buying supplies to bring to the shelters for the real victims who are without homes let alone power or water.
Didnt mean to sound like i was sitting around waiting for the game.
Also figured i would pump alittle positive into this much maligned thread. Lol.
