When you go out on a "limb" saying something like that, you're definitely having a bias. Why even "go out" at all?

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

Fellas do we really care what this guy thinks? It has taken me some time to get to the point where I can think coherently after being at the game yesterday. Man, what a game!

I may have to change my nickname, to, "yee of little faith" for I gave up them after the interception. I looked at my brother-in-law and said, it's over they have lost we are outta here. Only to have my brother-in-law tell me to sit down, it is not over yet, and what do you know DOINK off the uprights, Skins Win!

Like others have posted we are 3-0. Who cares how we got there we are 3-0. Besides how many media wankers predicted the Vikings and the Cardinals to be 'Sleeper' Teams. Yeah right, Sleeper maybe in the sense of they put you to sleep watching them, but no way are those teams play-off teams. Makes me think of famous Jim Mora meltdown, "Play-offs!!???!!??!!???"

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

The one thing that has pissed me off about these so-called writers is that I get the sense they are going to keep predicting our demise until something bad happens or until we put together a string of losses, so they can sit back on their fat asses and cheap suits and say......hmmmm, we told you so?!

What assholes we have for journalists these days. They sound off like a bunch of little bitches in a highschool bathroom - seriously! There's so much noise in there you can't distinguish any voice.

By the way, does anyone have any idea what Sean Salisbury's/ESPN email address is?? He's just not convinced about this one, as he a said yesterday. I want to shoot him a quick email to "convince him"!

Hail Skins! .....and Hail the return of the 12thMan!!!

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

I guess the fact that our offense clicked on all cylinders and our defense held yet ANOTHER "top 5" back to less than 100 yards (most of which came on one run, where there was DEFINITELY holding) isn't convincing enough. I mean damn, the Bengals BARELY beat the Texans. Come on now.

I mean the game would have been over had it not been for a blocked field goal and that late INT.

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

Under the radar is where I'd like to be all season. I hope when were 12-4 or 13-3 or something like that we're the "worst x-x team ever". This aint college so opinions don't mean shit.

But for the sake of argument. How does beating two "playoff teams" makes us the "worst 3-0 team ever" ?

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

The main reason I'm pissed about this is because he said this after we've played only 3 games?! Give me an f-ing break. I mean damn, they'll take any chance they can get to take a shot at us. 3-0 teams happen every year and I've NEVER heard anything like that before. I thought that winning the close ones was what makes you a good team.

If we're the worst undefeated team in the league, what does that make the teams who've lost to us?

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

I've said this so many times in this forum, but I'll say it again. Sports Illustrated has become the McRag of sports journals. I lost all respect for the magazine and any of its writers (with the possible exception of King) years ago when they gave unequivocal support to Allen Iverson after his little bowling lane brawl. Later they printed 14 retractions from their story but buried it in fine print in the middle of the magazine. The magazine has no integrity and less talent. We should not even be discussing their opinion. Give me an analyst who really knows football that says this about Washington and I'll get upset. But SI? I'm feeling that gaseous feeling welling up again.

Seems to me there are so very few analysts that actually know what they are talking about these days. Either they're commentary is driven by ratings or showmanship, i.e. Michael Irvin, or they have some biasis against certain teams, i.e. Peter King.

One guy I'm starting to like a little is Troy Aikman, even though he's more of a commentator. He doesn't get carried away with shit.

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

Here's the deal--within 12 hours of the early game finals I am reading writers who are commenting on games as though they have watched and dissected each and every one. Do the math...13 Sunday games x 2 hours each (with immediate editing) is 26 hours just to watch the games, let alone break each performance down and write about them. [Even Dr. Z admitted that he did not watch the Dallas game until later, and only THEN did he change his opinion about the Skins] Just give me a homer, the box scores and highlights and I'll write my own opinions. Why do you think I hang out in this forum anyway?

At the end of preseason I posted that the thing that had me most impressed was the steady improvement by the Skins all through preseason. This has carried over in the regular season and the team is getting better by the week. You can SEE it....IF you watch the games. And yet the ONLY analyst I've heard comment on this fact is Jimmy Johnson on the FOX pregame show. I'm guessing that he actually earns his money.

So let Don Banks meet his little deadline. Nobody will care anyway if we have January tickets to Detroit.

But it's so frustrating. Especially since they are just waiting for the Skins to lose so they can pick us apart and validate their bullshit. The only reason I watch the pregame shows anymore is to kill the anxious moments leading up to kick-off.

You're right on as far as progress goes. Game 1, we score 9 points, Game 2,
14 points, and Game 3, 20 points. You can slice it anyway you want but that's improvement!

Also to be fair, even Terry Bradshaw has given us some props.
