Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

It has only been 3 games but the D is playing very well ... the additions of Manusky and Tomsula have undoubtedly helped a lot

these 2 coaches were with McCloughan in San Francisco .... just a coincidence, I'm sure :lol:

I agree that going into the bye week at 3-1 would be really H U G E
The Redskins will never be a consistently successful franchise while Dan Snyder is so involved with 'managing'
we may have some success but there's no chance of any consistentency ... NONE!

Its okay, man. Definitely the safest position for any Redskins fan.

I'm not sure I'm a believer yet, but I sure want to be one.

Was on the road all day yesterday, but got to hear the Cowboys and Giants both losing on the NFL radio. Love it.

Kansas City Chiefs is the best team in the NFL today. They are playing at home. Most productive rusher.

Vegas odds, for what they may be worth, are: Kansas 48u-10 -7 -10
Kirk would need to be consistent after the last win and the team would need to still play at its best. Definitely an upset if Skins win but I am hoping for one.

I will be happy with a competitive game. Just no embarrassment on national (and international) TV, please. [-o<
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans for over a decade and a half. Stay away from football operations !!!

Hoping for the Redskins to play well - our defense is starting to gel and the tackling has improved a lot

Sirs.. Madams...

I LangleyparkJoe, Aka LPJ, is extremely happy with our defense. Yes I am bummed we lost, however it was not a surprise considering how good the Chiefs are.
The real surprise for me was how our defense played, incredible.. I'm totally boosted for the future now.

LPJ out.. :mrgreen:

The most impressive thing about the defense is how others stepped up to fill for the fallen, they matured right in fron tof our eyes and are ready for whatever the rest of the season throws at them.

Agree with both of those comments. As well as the defense played and filled in for each other, I was really struck by the difference when Josh Norman went out. I know he's a top corner, but I have to admit I've probably undervalued his importance on that defense. Glad its a BYE week coming up, and I hope Josh is back on the field sooner than later.
