    Well, the first game is on a “win 1” week, so maybe be not?

    Redskins vs Cowboys Prediction Thread: Who Wants To Be On Top ?

    This is the “Lose 1” game. This year the losses have been bad. Going with the trend. Dallas - 27 Redskins - 6 No points in the 3rd quarter for the 5th consecutive game.

    I might be wrong, but didn’t hecget pressure immediately and get flushed to his right? When he threw it I think he was on his back foot with pressure in his face. Like he wanted to go deep but just couldn’t... I could be wrong though.

    @Dissident2 Kirk has legitimate top-end weapons and a smart OC. Alex has Josh Doctson, some average weapons and Gruden. Not suggesting Alex is better but he’s playing with a stacked deck... not in his direction.

    Improved Rush Defense...(Shoutout)

    Stopping the run takes 11 guys. But your DL HAS to win or else the whole thing falls apart. Now that the DL is playing better, the LBs and secondary have to clean up tackling.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    There are 4 parts to this: 1. DJax, Garçon and Crowder were a pretty lethal combination, especially when Reed was also healthy. They had a lot of talent, which helped all of them 2. McVay was the OC, and had a good plan to use all of them. He also called plays in 2016. 3. Cousins got them the ball. 4.Gruden “supervised” Gruden gets credit for working with McVay, it it was McVay who worked directly with Kirk, and it was McVay who put together the offense. I think the largest amount of credit probably goes to the receivers. Then McVay and Cousins. Then Gruden.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    Riverboat Ron also. As an interesting factoid, that was the first time the 'Skins have beaten Turner as a HC or coordinator since before he became the 'Skins HC in 1994. They were 0-5 against him, I believe. It's true, though, Carolina really made some odd choices there at the end after walking down the field as calmly as a nice stroll through Rock Creak Park.

    That would be a start. If it’s followed by 2-6, my mind wouldn’t be changed.

    This was my point the entire off-season. I get the injuries were a thing last year, and in games like the first Dallas game and even the Seattle game, the OL injuries were almost unrecoverable. But the plan of not bringing in anybody of consequence to back up the OL, save for a draft pick, go after a WR with a history of injury, I mean, it was just a big gamble. And the guys who were hurt last year are hurt again. This is on Bruce, and I understand that Jay might not have been entirely on board with the plan, but as an organization, they all get to share in the responsibility in some way. Today, the 'Skins were good enough to get 17 points, and had a great opportunity to put the game away at the end of the first half, and completely gagged it away. Then scored zero points in teh third quarter for the 4th game in a row. There's enough "blame" to go around. I'm glad they won. I expected them to win. I don't expect them to win next week. I will say this: I believe there is enough talent on this team to get to 9 or 10 wins. CT, Crowder, Reed, AP, VD and Richardson are enough weapons to make something out of it.

    3 for 20 is not "on." It's honestly time to give somebody else a shot.

    I've got to think that Dan is finally sick of that excuse. I mean, as much crap as we give him, and while he's been a bad owner and made bad decisions, he's not stupid. And his personality is not to be overly patient. With half empty stadiums, a boring brand of football, no excitement, and average records over and over, at some point he's just not going to be able to hold it together anymore. I don't get the feeling Dan's going to wait forever.

    1. I would bench Doctson and start Mo Harris. That was probably hard to do today with Crowder out, but I'd give it a shot next week. 2. I wouldn't be shocked if CT was out a few weeks. But if he's back, that would be helpful. As an aside (this isn't pointed at you), I don't care about the injuries anymore. You play with who you've got, and you have to figure out how to win. Everybody has injuries. Some worse than others.

    Dude. The story of the season is already written. This team will finish 8-8. That's what Gruden is playing for. Most likely scenario is losing to Dallas next week.

    Gruden doesn't believe in being aggressive with the lead. It's just not in his DNA.
