How do you feel, the season is upon us.

Great final write up on last night's game from Keim here; Redskins 24, Bucs 10: Ten Observations - Washington Redskins Blog - ESPN

But really, the season starts next Thursday night and it's time make your feelings known! I am sure that will be hard for some on this board .

The poll is Redskin specific, but the thread is open to all thoughts. Who are you seeing as overhyped(Seattle), or under the radar (for me it's the Redskins)? Do you think the NFL will get the penalties right now that preseason is over? What one rule change has you feeling like it's going to set the tone for the year.

It's all out there, the new season is here, and everyone is 0-0, and is looking to get into the playoff hunt.

Are YOU ready for some football, or is your labor day feast your first priority?

Re: How do you feel, the season is upon us.

I'm feeling mild euphoria. I think Jay Gruden is a helluva coach, and I know RG is a winner at QB, but for this season I'm just not that optimistic. So long-term, I'm "boisterously confident", but for now I'll stay reserved.

Overhyped? Buccaneers. Everyone pegs them as a surprise playoff contender, but I don't see it. Mostly because McCown isn't that good and their O-line is terrible. But one Buc I do like is Lavonte David. Should have been defensive player of the year last year, and with more exposure he might get it this year. Definitely one of my favorite players in the NFL. Eagles are also overhyped. I think they should be the division favorites, but head and shoulders above everybody else? I don't agree with that.

Under the radar? I would say the Jaguars, but they've been getting some hype this year. I'll go with the Redskins as well. If Griffin plays well early and this defense is finally able to keep us in some games, we could be a playoff contender.

Yeah, safe to say, I'm ready for some NFL. Before we know it, the season will be over and the drudgery of the offseason will have returned, so let's enjoy some Redskins football before it's gone again. HTTR!

Re: How do you feel, the season is upon us.

I agree about Gruden. At his press conference last night he said some things (I don't remember them ) that just were diametrically opposed to a Maroon and Black comment. I do remember they asked him about Arena league vs NFL, and really thought his response was insightful, a little revealing, but ultimately blunt. I know it ended with, it's all about the wins. or something. He also said he let the OC call all the plays (except the TD's and laughed), which I thought was a great thing. Let's them work together and see each other's styles so there is familiarity.

Many, koolaid level going up as I write this!

How do I feel? Given RG3's play and Jay Gruden as the play caller it's hard not to feel hopeless! I would be shocked if we make the playoffs or compete at a high level.

Re: How do you feel, the season is upon us.

I was so irrationally high a year ago, that I'm really gun shy about projecting positive vibes about this team. And nothing in the pre-season, especially RG3 and the offensive line, have given me a comfortable feeling. is it's tough to drink the Kool Aid right now...

Having said that (here comes the fanboy), I gotta believe that RG is better than he was last year, especially with the weapons he has been given. And for no particular reason, I feel better about the defense, hoping that Hatcher might make enough difference to help a secondary essentially unchanged from the cluster-f*** that we saw last year.

Anything at or above .500 for the season will be a success, and I guess it should give us hope that if we can add a passable right side of an offensive line, and just 2 defensive secondary players we should be able to play with anyone.

HTTR - sigh...

Re: How do you feel, the season is upon us.

Worst teams in the league

1. Buffalo - they will win 2 and no 1 in the draft next year

2. Raiders - they could win 4. Dennis Allen is clearly the worst coach in the league

3. Cleveland - this will be a mess, manziel will play this year, but play poorly. Manziel as a system QB, you can clearly see that from last night's results of the A&M game. Cant read defense or even call plays

4. Houston - No QB and big mistake replacing the D cordinator...the only thing helping Houston is they play in the worst division in football

5. Jets - I just dont see Geno being the answer. The GM has also chosen to play with one CB this season.

LMAO, love the poll

Eight of the Highest Blood Alcohol Levels of All Time | affotd
Quote:
8: If You Lived In Indiana, You’d Drink Too (BAC of .552)

28-year old James Henderson doesn’t want you to call him a hero. He puts his pants on one leg at a time, just like anyone else. Only after he puts on his pants, he goes out and gets so drunk that his doctors mistake his test results as a copy of John Bonham’s autopsy report. And he does this all while the sun is still up.

Henderson was found on the side of the road at 3:15 in the afternoon, which seems like the best place to be when you’re drunk enough that to summon John Daly during a séance. Police reported that he had several bruises, and when he was wakened during treatment he made a “barely coherent statement” about getting hit by a car. We can only assume that the “car” is some code word for “a handle of tequila.” He eventually was charged with public intoxication, because Northwest Indiana only feels joy when they’re stopping anything fun from happening.

(And to cement his legacy, he once again got arrested for having a nearly .3 BAC at 7AM this past March 25th. Because, again, it’s Indiana.)

I have a feeling that the Redskins are going to shut the naysayers the hell up just like in 2012......

Re: How do you feel, the season is upon us.

New system, new coach, OL is bottom third of the leage, RG3 has a ways to go -- he strikes me as being a little immature but I don't know the guy. One thing we can all agree on is that he's not a phenomenal leader but maybe he'll get there.

That being said, the culture seems way better, more congenial compared to the tyranny of MS. Lots of offensive weapons, Jordan Reed will be a matchup nightmare game in and game out. Morris seems like the real deal and the defense might not be horrendous. I'm calling 8-8.
