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?

That's correct, but I was thoroughly educated by folks here the analysts are pros at what they do and should be taken very, very seriously. LOL, it's all a joke is my point.

You seem to be very selective as to when you choose to rely on analysts opinions.

Of course they're not right all the time. They're not wrong all the time either.

Games aren't played on paper as we know. They're played by little men inside our TV sets.

I was actually thinking of those little green army men that my grandmother used to let me play with when I was a kid.
