The Browns are not a pushover. Saying we will win or lose reminds me of a few threads in the Lounge - conjecture.

Historically, teams play a little over their heads in support of a backup in his first start. I expect the 'Skins to give a little extra if Captain Kirk starts.

This isn't Golf. It's football. Fans declare victory because that's what we do. We can't impact the game right now either way. No need to be political about it.

Get hold of yourself.

Kirk will play if he needs to. We will fight and may win or lose either way.

It will be a tough game and there are NO GUARANTEES whether RGIII plays or not, or whether Kirk plays or not.

I'm not worried. Even if Cousins is the guy on Sunday, he does not seem out of place on the field. You usually worry about the play being too fast for a rookie coming off the bench, but he has looked very comfortable in his limited time out there. We may win, we may lose, but I would venture a guess that Cousins will be ready.

The Browns are a lot like us in a way - they are not as bad as their record or their recent history suggests

This game IMO will be a little harder for us it is an away game - the fans will be excited to see RG3 and to see their team take the Redskins down


IF we continue to play as we have the last few games, we'll win

The Redskins no longer are trying to be competitive and hoping to win

these Redskins are playing to win each and every game
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

This is my thoughts as well.

Having Kirk start, I think, actually improves our chances; not the reverse.

This could be a trap game for us with a healthy RGIII, but with Cousins, the guys all know they got to step it up.

I say give RGIII the time to really heal and put your faith in the Captain.

I think I'd rather send Cousins out there than an injured RG3. Our pistol option game works because of the threat of RG3 slipping out and running. If the knee causes him to lose a step, that aspect of our offense is gone.

Maybe we'll see how well RG3 can run a traditional offense in the NFL without the option run trickery? I'm looking forward to it.

Flawless logic...... :roll:

HOWEVER, they are 5-3 in their last 8 and 4-3 at home.

It isn't as simple as looking at their record. We are at a point in the season where momentum starts to factor in...... and CLE has momentum.

That said, CLE matches up well with us. Offensively they have an inconsistent rookie QB and a below average running game. In order for our 2ndary to hold their own, they need to play against an inaccurate QB prone to making mistakes (doesn't everyones, I know but even more so for us). They have that in Weeden. Richardson is also averaging only 3.3 ypc over the past 5 games.

CLE has a good D, but they haven't exactly been playing the NFL best as of late against a Roth-less PIT, then OAK, and KC. Regardless, we'll need to score early to take control of the game since it is played away. I think that is why RGIII is so important. But if he's not ready, then we can't force him back.

All in all, I think CLE is our game to lose --- BUT they aren't playing like a 5-8 MIA or BUF. So I wouldn't go out there and say CLE is a team playing like a 5-8 squad. They are playing better.

like.. enjoy the win, let the week play out and if you hear that KC1 is going to start den come back with the opinion that we will lose.

are you in the dmv area bro? cuz around here all of us are walking around looking for purple to gloat at.


LPJ has exactly the right attitude!

Yes, what a win. The Browns-now-called-Ravens must have been "gobsmacked" as SLR and UKSkins might say...and however that word originated, it sounds like the way all Baltimore must feel.

I beginning to think this Redskin team is like the Nats: never give up on them, never count them out. Never.

LOL the best part is some of you sound just like Cincy fans that we beat, or Steel3r fans of San Diego fans Oakland and KC suck. We have lost three games this year in the last 45 seconds of the game. I bet if we just one 1 or 2 of these games you would not be feeling that great.

1. You do not have a better RB
2. You do have a better QB
3. You do have better core of WRs, but Gordon is better than all of them
4. We have better o-line and D-line


Again you get respect when you win, the Browns are starting to earn respect around the league. Without RG3 your team is ...you just have to look over the past 10 years to prove that.

At Cleveland Good Luck with that.....

I am telling you that the browns are no joke....look at what they did to the steelers with the best defense in the league....

1. 359 more yards on six more carries for Morris says different.
2. Agreed
3. Garcon is better than Gordon, but I'll give you the rest.
4. With our injuries, I'll give you the D line, but you are incorrect on the O line.
Your score: One and a half out of four, Not too good.
