Gotta see improvement anywhere. I was holding out hope because of the offense but now the first 7 games are looking like a facade.
What drives me crazy is that last year I remember thinking we were a QB away from being a damn good team. Lost alot of close games and beat the Gints twice with Rexy Becky. How the hell do we have a really good QB now and were worse? Wtf??

I'm not saying we're making the playoffs. Those two "5 in a row or we don't go" runs were special. But we still look just as stupid now as Giants fans did last year.
You're joking right? at the midway point in 2007, the Giants had gone 25-23 in Coughlin's first three seasons and had made the playoffs two years in a row. Comparing the point the Redskins are at now with them is imbecilic. Oh and the giants went on to win the Superbowl that year -- does it seem like we are just getting ready for a Superbowl run?

The answer is the pass defense. And we have a few players in thre seondary who weren't there last year. Atogwe, despite battling through injuries, played solidly last season. The safeties this year are not not up to the task.

Agreed. We have a secondary that is getting torched left and right. I do not think getting rid of M. Shanahan will solve things but it is time to look at if Haslett is right for this team. Our defense has had some definite setbacks with injuries but we were still giving up some big plays before the injury bug struck.

Haslett isn't the right DC but even IF Shanahan sacks him the defense will struggle from lack of talent. And if the new DC might be just as inept. MS doesn't have a great track record for picking top notch coordinators.

About the only thing I'd trust Shanny to pick is a rb

Re: Has the team mailed it in? (If so, why?)

Mailing it in is a strong statement. I like to believe alot of players play with pride and are very competitive no matter the situation. What I do know from this board is that Haslett was a big reason why Fletch almost didn't come back and Haslett also had run ins with Zo and Wilson. These are only ones we know about. I don't think too many guys are going to risk their job complaining about Shanahan with his 5 year contract but my point is this. Fletch is very much respected on this team. Moreso than Haslett I'm sure. I can't imagine him ever mailing it in but how much ethusiasm and conviction can the guy play with when he doesn't even believe in what his coach is doing? Lot's of players young or not look to him as an example and it's surely no secret how he feels about Haslett. It's bound to affect your play or at least your energy level to some degree. I would imagine Mike has lost some of the team also. He hasn't really made a difference in the standings in 2 and 1/2 years. I love football...always have...but losing takes it's toll on anyone. Mike was excited about this team before the season started. Now we have some injuries and we're not very good. I thought he was excited about the depth he'd built.

Wtf is it and why can't we win with it Shanahan?

Re: Has the team mailed it in? (If so, why?)

"Mailing it in" is bunk. I don't think that any player in the NFL quits or "Mails it in". The reason is simple.......contracts. There are no guaranteed contracts in the NFL. Every player knows that they have to play to get paid. They know that if they are not playing for their current team this season, what they do on the field is assessed not only by their current team, but, but 31 other teams in the league during the off season.

This is NOT the NBA or MLB where player contracts are guaranteed. Where "tanking it" or "mailing it in" for better draft position are common. And that slogan from last year attached to the Colts (Suck for Luck) is a load of crap. Each players future for the next season is linked directly to their effort and output on the field.

Say or think what you want. But mailing it in during the season is a bunch of crap.

Did you watch the Cowboys play under Wade Phillips last few games..... they should forever be hyperlinked to the phrases "tanking it" or "mailing it in".

Not buying. Phillips lost control of the team, true. But they did not quit on effort.
