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.

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.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Yeah good read. Still too many people out there sleeping on this team, or just flat out ignoring us for whatever reason. Another division title and the haters will have no choice but to recognize this team is legit and we're not the same old Skins.

Eh...like I said, if RG3 and all the other key players are healthy, and we have a bit of luck, I'm not going to argue that we have as good a chance as Seattle. But we're just not quite to the level of Atlanta, San Francisco, New England, or Denver yet. Next year, I like our chances a lot better: we'll have signed some good FAs, RG3 and Morris will be improved, Phillip Thomas and Richard Crawford will be healthy, and we'll have another draft to add talent.

Once you get into the playoffs, though, anything can happen. If it were a 7 game series like the NBA, we wouldn't have a chance this year. But NFL playoffs are all about momentum and who-wants-it-the-most. So I'm definitely not counting us out.

Well all of those teams need the same thing we do to make it that far... Health. SEA, SF, ATL, and GB aren't going if any of their QBs are hurt. And I am not as sold on SEA as everyone in the media seems to be. What's happens if Wilson has a down year or Lynch gets hurt. Who are they throwing the ball too out there? They have a defense but it isn't impenetrable.

Your point on health is a good one. But our QB is more likely to get injured.

And I'm not sold on Seattle, either. Plain and simple, Russell Wilson is overrated. He's good, but he is nowhere near as talented athletically as our own QB. And with Harvin injured, they have no go-to WRs. Marshawn Lynch is pretty good, but one offensive weapon isn't going to get you very far. Their defense is really good, but RG3 showed that we could beat it last year. And we did almost beat Atlanta in the regular season. If we get in the playoffs, anything could happen, I suppose. Unless we play Seattle; then we might as well chalk up a win the week before.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

If Wilson gets a serious injury, the SeaHags are in trouble. That offense is a lot less fearsome when run by Tarvaris Jackson. Defenses will just load up the box and cancel Beastmode.
