This can't be repeated enough. Shanny has climbed the mountain and knows what it takes to get there. The biggest challenge Garrett has faced is trying to get the last slice of pizza before Rob Ryan does during their coaches meetings.

I'm not nervous. I'm pumped. Bring it on. If you're nervous, you should drink more and do more drugs.


LOL...

I'll just be nervous I guess

100% ready to beat their ass! I know we have the horse power from the coaches to the water boy to send Dallas home for the off season. Were we all expecting to win on Thanksgiving Day like we did? The point is that wasn't luck, that's what this team is capable of doing, and I see them doing it again. Even a worse beating on the Boyz this time, this ones in our house.

And no I'm not 1 bit worried about Dez Bryant or Tony romoSUCKS. They both get hit straight in the mouth in this one!

Wondering how much it says about How Things Have Changed, the number of posters who think that the word "norvous" is something new.


Seriously. :)

Me? I'm not not nervous. I mean, I guess I should be. We can certainly lose this game.

But ... I'm just not worried about it. Not 'Norvous' if you will. :)

For me, it was the second Giants game. Up until that game, I had the little voice in my head saying 'deep down, you know we're going to lose this game, right?' Minus a quick break when Gibbs hit his stride, that voice has been in my head for over a decade now. No matter who we played I've grown to always expect a loss. But after the Giants game, it just kind of went away. I mean with the Ravens on deck I tried to be skeptical but I just ... didn't think we were going to lose the game. Same with the Browns game even though Griffin was sitting. Just didn't think we were going to lose. I mean, I TRIED to ... I just couldn't.

This week too. I know Dallas beats us all the time. I know romoSUCKS can pull wins out of his posterior now and then. I'm just not worried. I'm trying to be. But I'm not.

Maybe because I know a loss doesn't mean what it used to. If we lose this week it just means we got beat. It doesn't mean we suck. It doesn't mean we are The Same Old Redskins. Maybe that's why I'm not worried.

We're going to be better next year. This year? This was the warm up. And we still might win the division.

Maybe that's why I'm not worried. :)

Will everyones Nervousness go way if the Bears and Vikings lose? I think the nervousness comes because of it being the cowboys in a winner take all game. I am a little nervous but Im also more confident then I have been in years. romoSUCKS has so much pressure on him I dont think he will be able to handle it if we turn him over early I believe the flood gates will open. HE CHOKES IN GAMES LIKE THIS OUR QB THRIVES IN BIG GAMES.....HIS MOTTO IS NO PRESSURE NO DIAMONDS. But if we clinch a playoff spot before the game beating Dallas is icing on the cake.

That's part of it, for me.

We might lose. But I'm no longer convinced that we WILL lose.

And, far as I'm concerned, we've been playing with house money since the second giants game. I thought we were a pretty good team, even then. But I thought we were a pretty good team, in a deep hole. I don't think ANYBODY expected us to win out, after that.

Me? If we lose tomorrow, I'm still an optimist about this team. If we win tomorrow (or otherwise make the playoffs), and then lose the next game, I'm not gonna feel bad.

I'm gonna feel good about this team, no matter what happens, from here on out.

So many wonderful, inexplainable things have happened these past few weeks of Redskins football; too many to name, but I will reflect on a few: the first game of the season- who would have thought we score 40 points with two rookies...come on; when RG3 fumbled the ball into Josh Morgan hands, Touch down...come on; when RG3 suffers, what appears to be, a major injury to his knee, comes back two games later to win a much meaningful game...come on; however, I really like it best when a New York Giants defensive line man (Justin Tuck) said, "I am mad that the football gods have placed RG3 in the NFC East."

Speaking personally, yes. I'll be in a great mood for the game regardless of its outcome at that point. Even the greatest teams are entitled to an off game once in a while, so if we don't have to win seven straight, it would be nice.

Until then though, I'm all in. Nervousness and all. Let's get this **** rolling.

I know. :ols:

I think the terms "norvous" and "norvitis" (the disease which causes the norvousness) have been around since this board was started. :ols:

It's a good thing, though, that the malaise of Norv can be that far back in our rear view mirror, now.

1997 was the height of the Norvitis outbreak. It went into remission briefly early in 1999, but came back with a vengeance during the TB playoff game. It's worse than herpes.

RGIII has helped break ties with norvousness, because during this streak a lot of these games have been close, and are probably all games this team finds a way to lose in previous season.

It seems like just about every game during the win streak was also at the same time breaking some type of bad streak.

Goodbye Norvousness, I won't miss ya one bit!

Amen, Henry. Amen. I'm not nervous, either, for the same reason.

The difference between this season and the playoff runs of 2005 and 2007 is this: In '05/'07, by the time we reached the playoffs, we were gassed. There was nothing left in the tank. The following seasons were disasters. This year, while we may not win tomorrow night, we're going to go into next season (or into the playoffs this season) as the team that nobody wants to play.

That's why I'm not beside myself right now. I'm anxious and nervous, but I am confident that we will be back in the mix most years over the coming decade. That allows me to already feel like I can see the positives if things don't go our way tomorrow night.

Dallas is a worthy opponent and more desperate than we are. I still believe we are a better team, but winning 7 in a row with no margin for error is a tough task.

So, the big picture looks good, we've already exceeded expectations this season, and I know our team will come to play tomorrow night in the league's spotlight game!! I am a very happy Redskin fan.

With all that said, I hope the Lions and Packers win earlier in the day and we pound the Cowboys...there would be no better ultimate statement game for Griffin's Redskins in a season of statement games.

This week I've stayed away from all sports channels, kept my trash talking mouth shut, tried my best not to think about a Redskins victory, most importantly resisted the urge to think about finally exercising those old demons. I'm so nervous about this game, it's not even close to being ridiculous.

Win or lose this season has exceeded expectations and I'm very proud of what we accomplished this season.

Hey, far as I'm aware, the one thing that this team hasn't done, all year, is "win easy".

With Norv, if we were up by 21 at the half, you just keew we were gonna blow it.

Now, we've improved. We all know that we're gonna let the other team back in. We just aren't certain that we'll lose.

I'm not sure if we get in with a loss and I'd rather not lose our way into the playoffs. But at the same time I didn't see us in this situation at the beginning of the season, let alone 6 short weeks ago. 2 divisional rivals playing it out in one final game for the East.... Doesent get any better than that. It's Dallas week skins. Lets bring the title home so I can breathe again. What I'm most nervous about is our D though.
