The Eagles and Skins are two teams moving in opposite directions. For both teams, last year was merely the prelude. The bright lights of Monday Night Football are going to burn off the chaff, expose the truth and show everyone the path these teams are travelling.

Hallelujah my football brothers, on Monday, you shall see victory! On that day, football dominance will stand in your midst and you will sing its praises: "A new day is come. A new sun is risen. The glory of the past will once more be recalled and will light the way for the new future! Woe be unto those that challenge our team for they will be as dust before the storm."

... and just to be sure, I am sacrificing a goat.
Dude that was glorious. Joe I think you and I have been drinking the same koolaid. This team is a contender

There's too much time between now and the playoffs to be saying we're contenders already. But if we head into the playoffs completely healthy, and have a few balls bounce our way, playing in the Super Bowl is very possible. But I think you and JoeR are getting excited too early.

We are going to kick ass all year long. Therefore it is perfectly acceptable to be excited in week one.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

I am not excited. I am incredibly calm. Hand-wringing naysayers can tear at their garments, gnash their teeth and cover their heads in ash as they moan their doubts.

I believe, my brother, and I am at peace with the joy faith brings. Join me.

Can I get an amen?!

No, but in all seriousness, I agree. I can't help but be excited. I too believe we're contenders.

Should the very worst happen and our franchise QB get a season ending injury on MNF, we can still be a playoff team.

No, I did NOT just say Jehovah. Put the rocks down.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

In all seriousness, read the quotes from the offensive players in this article: Teammates Not Worried About Griffin III. Everyone is encouraging supporting and leading as appropriate. I know a lot of quotes are canned/forced by the team to fit the narrative etc, but damn if Griffin doesn't sound like the leader of this team and everyone ready to pull together.

You have to love about Robert....from day 1 he has been the leader and nobody that I have heard has said....anything different. He has that rare combination of Fearless mentality, talent and desire that makes the people around him better and..."believe". This is what the Skins of the last 20 odd years have lacked (well....that and a few dozen other things). These guys.....BELIEVE they can win regardless what the time clock says.
The Skins of old thought the same thing and they did ok with it.....we'll see
HTTR and.......AMEN Joe!

Great Boswell article, I couldn't agree more.

Robert Griffin III gives Redskins a legitimacy that shouldn’t be written off - The Washington Post

There may be a lot of time between now and then, but there are a few teams right now that I consider contenders for the Super Bowl. And as of now we are one of them. We all know that a lot of things need to fall in place for any SB team by the time the playoffs roll around, but I still believe we have a chance.

Not an Oak type chance but a ATL or SEA type chance to get to the game. We could be great.
