It needs to be more effective than prayer alone. Self immolation, like the Tibetan Monks are doing again. I'll even send the gasoline, I know you guys back East are suffering in some areas.

Honestly Matty - not pro football. Its great when we are still in the hunt and i have a vested interest in playoff positioning, division games, etc. I do love the sport for what it is dont get me wrong, but It becomes painful for me to watch in nov/ dec and not think about my Redskins. Im weak what can I say.

I mean, for the last year Luck vs RG3 was the talk of football, and it only increased after the draft. So thinking along the lines of comparison here is pretty obvious, right?

And how can we forget all the analysts who said RG3 would have a better rookie year because he was surrounded by superior talent and coaching than Luck

I can't wait for the day we can move beyond the Shanny debacle...it's getting soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo old.

Again, I understand that Luck and RG3 are going to be tied together for their careers.

It's the team comparisons that I think are a little pointless.

The Colts are obviously much better off talent wise than most of us gave them credit for. They also haven't been hit by the injury bug as hard as we have. Pagano's illness is undoubtedly giving them extra inspiration and motivation as well. That element can't be underestimated.

Matty, I would feel like I was in the Twilight Zone if Redskins fans didn't take things to the extreme...LOL!

When I watched the game last night I wasn't wondering why the Skins aren't 6-3 too.

Don't let me ruin the fun, maybe I'm the crazy one.

Please feel free to offer up comparisons to any teams meeting the following criteria:

1) has 4 or more injuries to starting skill positions
2) had a major reduction in cap space 2 days prior to FA start
3) has both a rookie starting QB, and rookie starting RB
4) their last 4 opponents have an avg top 15 defense (our last 4 avg top 12th {1,9,26,15} Colts last 4 avg 26th {31,21,29,27})


fair enough?

Really the only teams I compare against are in our division because that's who we competing directly with for a playoff spot. Right now, Eagles orgainization is in a free fall, Cowboys are completely lost, and the Giants are clutch but not consistent. The Skins are on the way up now that we have a franchise QB.


Why would I give a flying f*ck about the colts?

Well, to be fair, they expected the Colts to be at 3 wins all season and us at around 6, so the Colts performance is more what is the outlier, not their predictions for us.

And of course aren't you one who said that you don't listen to what the media says? So why would you be using that now to justify your argument?
