  1. A healthy mix of homer and cautiously optimistic. I've been a fan since the days of getting autographs as a kid at training camp in Carlisle, PA since the early 80's. Then, working at their training camp when I was in high school, and getting to interact with some of the players at that time, I was hooked. That 1991 season, while oh so long ago, was quite special. And I believe in my heart that someday, we'll do that again. I don't complain much, because where is the fun in that? Where is the fun in thinking that we can't come back and win this game? And I have no idea what goes on behind the scenes -- none of us do, we can only speculate or read other's speculations -- so I don't worry about it. I'm almost 50. I just need one more Lombardi Trophy in DC (and one more college football national championship in Happy Valley), and I will be a happy, happy man that can ride off into the sunset...

    Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: Kenny Loggins Special

    2-14 in our last 16 on MNF. On the road. With a back-up QB. Why not. Redskins 21 Eagles 17
  3. The Rams wore all yellow (gold?) last night, and it didn't look horrible....why can't we try that for a color rush choice? gold uniforms with burgundy trim? That might look pretty good...
  4. Those all-black Eagles uniforms are a terrible look. So glad we don't have black as an accent color, where we could make the same mistake...

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Falcons

    We knew Atlanta had a premiere offense, and they showed it yesterday. They had the best 3rd-down conversion rate in the league, and showed it again yesterday. We beat a very good team in Carolina, and a good team in Green Bay. So beating good teams isn't impossible for us. They ran like crazy over us, but we convincingly shut down McCaffery, Elliott, and Barkley the previous three weeks...so what's the fluke? I say yesterday. We've been winning with defense and a dominant ground game. Those things escaped us yesterday, and we lost. Move on. No one really expected us to go 14-2, and I'm sure we'll all be thrilled with 10-6 (which would probably win the division)...so just get ready for next week, and see if we can't head into Thanksgiving at 7-3...
  6. I was going to say 7-3, but I like your prediction better.

    So are you saying that the gold pants are the George Costanza's of football pants?

    Second half could have been more productive, but I'll take any win, pretty or ugly. I will say that I miss the gold pants, however...
  9. You know what teams that want to make the playoffs do? They win the games that they are supposed to win, like yesterday. Good win, let's go get those Colts!

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    I don't care if every single pass play ends up being a check-down if they're winning football games.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    What are you talking about? He's averaged 6 INT's a year for the last 7 seasons...Kirk has averaged 12 over his three years as the full-time starter...
  12. I'm 46 years old, and I LOVED the white jerseys/burgundy pants look at home throughout the 80's, 90's, and early 2000's...but I'll be honest, I think the current burgundy jerseys/yellow pants is fantastic. I hope they don't ever go away from that.
