I'll be doing just that this weekend while watching the Dallas/Eagles game.

I'm an Eagles fan this weekend only.

I'm with Matty, can we not compare every situation out there to ours since each one is different? I'm kinda looking forward to this Sunday just putting it on the Red Zone channel and enjoying an afternoon of stress free football.
I was gonna say it sure would be interesting to see if they lost Wayne for the season and a few other key guys.

Yes, and then I think about the Miami Dolphins, Titans, Saints, Rams, Seahawks, Bucs, Cadinals, Bengals and Raiders all having a better record than us, and I'm right back in the dumps again.

So this season is injuries, ok. Got it. So next season, its gonna be the guys that got injured need a year or two to get back to 100%. Okay. Then what?

It's not just injuries. It's a mix of all. Injuries, shitty talent, poor coaching, capgate.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Helu is done. Orakpo is done. Carriker is done. Fred Davis is done. Garcon's injury won't heal up quick enough for him to play anytime soon. Then there's the secondary problem. D. Hall, Josh Morgan, Madieu Williams, and Reed Doughty are all second string talent. Where Carriker has been replaced, Jarvis Jenkins doesn't resemble the player who crashed the entire offensive lines in the 2011 preseason. He's just a body on the defensive line taking up space.

Evan Royster showed flashes of greatness last season, but his 6.0 yard per carry average has decreased to 3.8 yards a run. Maybe he just needs more touches. Josh Morgan is okay, but given his contract, I expected more of him so I'll suggest he's under performing. Leonard Hankerson has been so-so. I can't overlook dropped TD passes in the end zone. Santana Moss has been Santana Moss. Logan Paulsen has surprised. He reminds me a little of Don Warren.

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.
