This would be a big win against a good defense.

Let's hope we get the running game going. I'm still waiting for our first 100 rushing-yard effort by one of the RBs.

after the incredible effort last Sunday and winning a game most of us knew we were going to lose, this game is a big game but it's not a must win game - last Sunday means we can go 5-3 and have a good shot at the playoffs - not because we're a good team but because there are a number of NFC teams that are actually worse - especially those NY giants, what a joke :lol:

last week's game was a nail biter - I'll be a lot more relaxed this week - instead of 3-6 we could be 4-5 or 5-4

btw - this roster was not built to have a strong run game or to get 100 yards rushing from a RB each week
there's no way that anyone expects any of our RBs to get 100 yards against this D - Gruden will not be, that's for sure



enjoy the game - win or lose we're still in it
Nobody really expects the Redskins to do well and this is primarily due to the way the franchise is managed.
It's not the players or the coaches fault. It's time to clean house & change the losing culture here

nothing wrong with a lot of scoring ... especially in a game against a better team

I guess the Vikings are a lot better than the Seahawks Home field advantage doesn't exist @ FedEx field

we're not very good inside the last 2 minutes of both the game and the half

14 unanswered by the Nikes

21 unanswered points - good thing we won last week or we'd be looking at 3-6

4-5 ain't bad and we're still in it

Still in what? Still in perpetual sub-mediocre-level performance?

we're still in contention for a playoff spot - losing this is not a big deal if we go 5-2

there's a HUGE difference between 3-6 and 4-5 - especially when you look at the rest of the season

we seem to let really good players like Kai Forbath go a lot these past 10 years :twisted:
