  1. Can someone explain what was meant by "I rely on them, its not in our country?"

    Who are the 2018-19 Redskins?

    Yeah Ed, I guess I see the similarities to last year. Early season game, both teams were 3-3. We had just come off of a tough road loss to Philly....although for the Dallas game, I can imagine more tickets are purchased well in advance than other games. I recall that you came to the Cowboys game last season. From attending a lot of Skins-Cowboys games at FedEx, I think last year's was the worst I've seen as far as the percentage of Dallas fans there. I'm anticipating a similar scene on Sunday.

    As the defense goes, so the 2018 Skins will go. I'm more optimistic than I was at season's start and it was good to prevail against a good team today, but my optimism pretty much only extends to 9-7 at best.

    Redskins vs, cowboys for First Place in The NFC East

    I was thinking that too. I guess if the Cowboys score a FG in OT, and we score a TD, we would not have to kick the XP (making it 16-13), right?

    What??? I like Romo as a broadcaster, but a Skins/Cowboys game on CBS screams Summerall (RIP) and Madden! I'll be there anyway, so won't hear the broadcast.

    Gotta go back to the original point of the thread that again we had roughly 60K come out to FedEx for the third straight home game this season. The Skins are now 2-1 at home, so I guess it doesn't matter. And I expect the place to be packed against Dallas on Sunday. Still, kind of a weird look.

    In another thread someone mentioned that they were kind of happy Dallas won today because they didn't want the Skins to face a desparate Cowboys team next week. I think next Sunday will be a hard-fought affair, but, looking ahead, the game I'm concerned about is the Giants up there. NY seems to be in a bit of turmoil and has to play at ATL next Monday, but can see them playing the game of their lives when we come to town.

    Improved Rush Defense...(Shoutout)

    Burg, no question the D did their job in that instance. But again, look at the four Panthers drives prior. 16 passes and three Cam runs. The Redskins didn't stuff the run on those drives...….because the Panthers didn't run!!

    I think I'm more impressed with Carolina's offense than ours, although, as I said, not having Crowder and Thompson limited us. And we do have to credit the forcing of the turnovers too, although DJ Moore's boneheaded plays early......not downing a punt which would've pinned us deep, and then trying too hard to make something out of nothing on the subsequent punt return...….were big. Norman made a great effort to strip Moore on the pass reception fumble. And I don't know what happened on Cam's beach ball INT......yes, he was getting pressure on the play, but didn't see his arm get hit or anything.

    In the first half, between their first drive and the drive when they were deep at their own 3, the four drives in between featured 16 passes and three runs, all by Cam. I know its a passing league now, but that is a bit ridic.

    Obviously a lot of folks on here don't remember those days. Or the Spurrier game against Jacksonville in 2002 where we lost to the Jags 26-7 and only ran 15 times for 64 yards because the OBC thought it was "such a good night to pitch it around." If Norv thought he could be effective throwing the ball against our secondary (which Cam largely was) or he saw us stacking the box and one wants to say that was a reason for the low yardage total, that is a different argument. I just don't feel there's enough of a sample size to say that the Panthers running game was shut down by anyone except Norv Turner.

    And if Norv decides to totally abandon the run based on the last two carries of the first drive, he is an idiot.

    As I mentioned in another thread...…..McCaff ran the ball for 9 and 8 yards on the first drive, then we held him to a total of one yard the next two carries on the same drive. The next time McCaff touched the ball on a running play was with under two minutes in the first half pinned back at their own 3, the Panthers FIFTH drive after that first one. What stopped the Panthers running game was Norv Turner.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    Quit being a Debbie Downer T. If you can't accept that this team stacks up with the 91 Skins, you are a poophead 😁
