Anyone else sick of hearing how the Redkins are "lucky"?

I keep hearing about how we were lucky to win the Seattle game after that bad FG attempt. Or how we got lucky with our fumble recoveries against the Eagles. How we got 2 lucky plays against Dallas to win...

We recovered just 4 of 26 total fumbles after last weeks game, on the season. Just FOUR! That has to be an NFL record for worst luck or something. But now that some things have gone in our favor, suddenly we're lucky. But heaven forbid they mention how we were UN-lucky earlier in the season.

It's getting extremely old reading negative comments week in and week out about the skins, despite whether they win or lose. Even against SF we got bashed. Then the Giants win, and suddenly they're all incredible.

It's rediculous.

People can claim luck or what have you, we're 5 - 3 and thats all that matters. Whenever someone says something COULD have happened (like we COULD be 1 - 7) it annoys me. The world COULD spontaneously combust at any moment. We COULD have won every Super Bowl since 1991... you're as good as your record and we are 5 - 3 thats all that matters. I don't even listen to people who call us lucky or claim how we could be much worse, doesn't bother me... We're 5 - 3! (rhyme)

what gets me is that if the two TD's against dallass had happened at the height of our rivalry OR it had been dallas that scored them against us they would be called a great comeback. currently we are called "lucky"?

i said it before and i will say it again. the first TD could not have been luck because even IF Moss had dropped it there was a reasonable case for pass interferance (watch the clip, roy hits him in the shoulder just before the ball arrives) the second TD simply cannot be luck because they got burned on basically the same play from moments before. the only luck we suffered from that night in dallas was the luck of cowgirl defenders being so stupid.

Recovering your own fumble is just as much a good play as it is the ball bouncing your way. The Dallas game is not luck because we did it TWICE. One time is lucky, two times shows that you found a weakness and exploited it.

But.... needing a missed field goal to stay alive is luck. Just ask Dallas how the story ends when they don't miss.

How about this food for thought...

We COULD be 7-1 if we didnt give KC and DEN the games with bad turnovers...

What now media?

Cowboy fan: AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA....

People only see the negative that comes out of negative stuff not the positive that comes out of negative stuff...hard to explain heh...

Luck is a good thing. Ask the Patriots but unfortunately for them their luck has run out. Teams that win championships often have luck involved. SO WHAT! A WIN IS A WIN! THAT WHY WE HAVE THE TERM, "ANY GIVEN SUNDAY."

people see what they want to see, when reality doesn't suit there wants.

Dallas's three close wins were more a fluke than Washington's but we are the lucky team, and Dallas a superbowl contender.... even though we've beat them on the road, and have played a much more difficult schedule so far.
