Hopefully the Skins aren't looking at Seattle the way you do...they'd better be looking at them as the team that beat the Pats and 49ers or we're gonna get our asses whupped!

No worries.

This team has played EVERY game among the last seven as a playoff game. I do not think that this team and its coaches has overlooked or underestimated ANYBODY.

As opposed to some posters, most "experts" and writers point out at Seattle as the hottest and most dangerous team in the playoffs. :idea:

Interesting thing is ... they play A LOT like we do. It will be an interesting game. It can go either way. I feel that the 4.5 point spread will change as the week progresses.

This would be a very difficult game in Seattle. Gladly, the game will be played at home. :wink:
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

Let's hope the Redskins win and the 6th seed wins two games so we can have the NFC Championship in Maryland/DC.

Totally agree. This team has consistently kept their mouths shut, stayed humble and focused, and taken care of business on the field.

Seattle is good, but the Redskins are nothing to sniff at. Furthermore, the Stadium sounded as enthusiastic as the great days at RFK.

Watched the game with Redskn Dan v1978...seemed to me that

- the holder mishandled the ball on Forbath's miss...slight angle to the ball.

- Cowboys first TD was clearly after the play clock had hit 0.

- Great game by the defense. Amazing...especially the defensive plays called by Haslett and London Flether. The blitz stopped Romo...throwing while leaning backwards, floating the ball, say, on that last INT

- London Fletcher played a GAME. He was after Romo on every play. That sack was a BIG play, and he was the lead pf about three Redskins who were about to swarm over Romo when he threw that last INT.

- On offense, it looked like the Cowboys dropped extra players into pass defense...did not see Redskin receivers open much, but Morris, ah, Morris!

This team will only get better and better.

Btw as great as RGIII and Morris were, I cannot give enough love to D. Hall. What a great game that guy had tonight.

Getting ready to snag my playoff tix at MIDNIGHT!!!!
he did play out of his mind tonight... of course, Dallas has ramped up the excuse train...


Right? Jeez, all night we heard about how "banged up" the Cowboys were. Made it sound like we had been injury free

At the end the only liability they had was a healthy Tony Romo

HTTR


Listening to that other guy -- the "analyst" with Michaels -- was like going to a dentist who doesn't believe in painkillers.

Poor poor pitfiful Cowboys...so many injuries...but, of course, the Cowboys ALWAYS come back and ALWAYS dominate the second half.

Harrumph!

That could be part of the reason he ended up with 200 yards rushing....the other part is of course that he's a beast!

Trying to think of comparisons:

- is Morris like the next John Riggins? No...smaller in realtion to the defensive players.

- similar to Larry Brown? No...Brown was about 195 pounds, and had the quickest acceleration I've ever seen. OL? Brown barely needed blocking...the OL just had to bother the defense for a heartbeat, and Brown was past the front four in doging linebackers.

So...Morris is a great runner completely unlike the Redskins' previous great RB's. Wow. That's all. Wow. Follows his blockers closely, cuts (like Brown), and always seems to sense and opening.

That long TD run was a beauty. Powered left, followed the blocking, saw the open space to his right, cut, and vooooom!

If anything I think the closest comparison might be Stephen Davis. Riggo and Portis were both faster then Morris. Morris just seems to find the hole and hit it for a gain. Morris isnt the most talented but he definatley makes the most of his oppurtunities.
Sean Taylor starting free safety Heavens team!

this team has been playing must win games since the bye week

there are many teams in the playoffs that are 'better' but there are no teams that we cannot beat

the giants won 2 Super Bowls recently and they were certainly NOT the best team in the NFL by a long shot at that time

they did not (and do not) have as good a HC as we do right now

and

RG3 doesn't need a couple of miracle plays like happened to Eli ...
RG3 is showing that he's truly a really good QB ... not just a lucky one :wink:




all that matters at this time of year is NOT what you've done before, but what you believe you and the guys around you, are capable of doing

this team will not be denied and we are certainly capable of getting into and winning a Super Bowl
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL


Currently 50-41
