Go Skins!!!

I grew up in the DC area and have been a diehard Redskins fan for over 30 years...

I went to the Skins - Dallas game last weekend (I also went 2 beers to far during the game) but now I am sobered up and back here is snowy Vermont...

They certainly have the momentum...

Seattle's strength of schedule was weak this year while the Skins schedule has been brutal...

Except for the Patriots game the Skins have not lost by greater than 8 points (Giants, Philly, GB, Dallas, TB)...

They should win, shouldn't they...

Don't rip my heart out...

GO SKINS!!!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't be surprised if they win today. The road goes no further than next week though.

I should throw in the near obligatory:

Go Hawks!

Although I seriously doubt it's going to help much .

Don't worry, the Hawks can still screw it up!

Perhaps if I repeat the incantation?:

Go Hawks!

Great game though. Man, I was cussing up a storm when Hasselbeck threw two touchdowns in a row.

Do you know how difficult it is to be a skins

After a whole bottle of Tums the Skins blew it again...

They should have scored from the 14 after the "onside" kick...

But they had a great run, a tough schedule, and one big distraction...

Can't wait till next year....

lotek...

Boy I feel for ya, that must be tough....

That missed field goal really seemed to deflate them. They couldn't do anything right on offense or defense after that. I was really hoping for a skins/cowboys playoff game too bad the Seahawks wouldn't cooperate.

I think The Danny is a true Redskins fan but the most important thing to him is $$$...

He has no idea how to run a football team (like I do )...

I believe he needs to get rid of Vinny Cerrato. I don't quite understand his relationship with The Danny...

We need a GM...BAD...Someone to pull in the third direction (Gibbs, The Danny, GM)...

My personal preference would be to see Gibbs become the GM and get Russ Grimm become Head Coach, but I think Al Saunders will get the nod after Gibbs decides to step aside...

The Danny will never fire Gibbs...

Would You...

Just to prolong the thread I will be the annoying Redskins fan that I am...

The Seahawks did not win...

The Redskins lost...


The Redskins have the edge in every offensive stat...Passing, rushing, time of possession...


When they didn't score after the 'onside kick' they lost the momentum...

On the Seahawks next drive Landry intercepted Hasselback but a REAL weak punt into the wind gave the Seahawks great field position (which they had all game) and The 'Hawks scored...

Then it was two poor passes run back for touchdowns...



The Skins were not owned in the 4th quater...

The Skins said we're tired and feel like going skiing...

You guys can keep playing...
