LOL Sorry, but that was pretty funny.
Yeah actually I was stretching things there, I don't really have much doom and gloom in my real life (knock on wood) or much to complain about.

Excellent. My doom and gloom comes off an "L" week.

Actually our special teams are pretty good coverage-wise. I'm waiting to see some big returns however.

That being said, if we don't find some offense, and soon, we will do a swan dive later this season.
I would not call our win over D lucky. Now if we would have picked up a droped punt and scored and then an IT and scored that would have been luck. Moss went to Gibbs with taking a route down field and it worked. They ran the play again and it worked. We won that game with skill it just took 55min to find the right play.

Good point. Those two plays to Moss were nowhere near "luck". We played with heart and hung in the game until the end. We won, and thats the whole point. Like Herm Edwards says "you play to win the game". Simple and plain.

Re: SI.com Article, "Which Unbeaten Team Will Fizzle?" Guess who they pick?

be realistic to why the *media* says this stuff about us. seriously folks, if we weren't homers, what would you think of our team?

any time there's been big hopeful changes and hype in a redskins offseason, any media person who ever took the bait would get seriously burned. no one's going to take that bait again, especially with a 1st week QB switch to the worst QB in the NFL last season. objectively, everyone knows (and saids) our D is good but that only got us 6 wins last year and not enough has changed in THEIR eyes to think any different.

PLEASE STOP BEING SURPRISED OR ANGERED by these media guys, rankings and graphic omissions. we're the fans and they are the analysts, as such they have absolutely no analytical reason to say anything better about us.

nothing but regular offensive TDs (and not FGs) will change anyone's opinion of the Skins (some fans included), and no, Brunell's 4th quarter heaves aren't regular. though hopefully they will come to be.

To each his own, but I don't get it when fans are so pessimistic. I guess you could argue it's being realistic in a way, but what fun is that when you're talking about your favorite football team.

I can't speak for everyone, but football is a type of escape from my everyday real life reality. How fun is it to doubt and second guess every move that your so called favorite team makes? I have enough doom and gloom in my normal life, I don't need to carry it over to my hobbies and things I enjoy.

Just my 2 cents, I guess I'll never understand what joy there is in crapping on your team.

You're assuming the media is completely unbiased and 100% knowledgeable regarding every team in the league... neither is true.

Stop now, even though we're 2-0 we shouldn't piss and moan when the media doesn't acknowledge it. We should just take our medicine and like it.

sure, but they're not all biased or ignorant to one specific team in unison.

being left out of an empirical stat graphic is one thing, being expected by the media to stay undefeated amoung the top teams is another thing entirely

Re: SI.com Article, "Which Unbeaten Team Will Fizzle?" Guess who they pick?

there was a poll on si, it said what undefeated team had the worst chance of making the playoffs, Obviously it was us but over 85% I believe voted for us, now that is pretty bad expecially when there are 4 choices, we are the worst undefeated team and surprise surprise we haven't even won as many games as those other undefeated teams, 30% chance of playoffs seems about what i think the media should be giving us. I don't even pass the 50% marker by much and i am a homer, that is why i am happy when carolina, atlanta, and the saints lose because i think that we are in a strong ass division and it will be hard for any team to make it out alive. IF and I MEAN A BIG BIG IF that we were at the same level as the cowgirls and e-girls we only have a 33% chance of winning the division. That isn't great so we should be looking for a wildcard.

I do however think we will be going to the playoffs

I like the Redskins as the underdog. Let people and the media hate on us. As long as we keep winning we'll be further toward our ultimate goal.
