What I would like to see happen but I know it won't

-Richard Crawford starting over Josh Wilson
he's not ready, if he was he would have been making plays when he played vs #3 and #4 Wrs when we are in the nickel. Inserting him now means our secondary gets worse. Especially inserting him over our best DB.

Quote:
-Keenan Robinson starting over London Fletcher
again, Robinson isn't ready. I guess you are throwing in the towel also? Fletcher is hurt and if he sits out a game the guy who should start is Alexander. Not a 4th round rookie.

Quote:
-Desmon Briscoe get more playing time
why what has he proven? He's not better than Hank, moss nor Morgan

Quote:
Fire Haslett, promote Morris
see mike23md's answer. I wholeheartedly agree with him.

Quote:
Keep giving Morris the ball
I believe we will
Quote:
-No more Kedric Golston
are players not allow to recover from ACL injuries in the eyes if redskins fans? Give me an effin break! Ughh Twisted Evil

Quote:
-Release Cedric Griffin, bring back Brandyn Thompson
I'd be for a return of he and Kevin Barnes. I never believed either should have been released in the first place. Both are young and can get better. C Griffin is done

Quote:
-Immediately release Madeiu Williams and insert Meriweather. I don't want Williams anywhere near this team.
I don't agree. He has knowledge. I don't think he should be back for next year but right now we aren't eliminated from the playoffs, he still needs to play and he will.

Quote:
-Release Keiland Williams, sign Steve Slaton
i believe Kyle would have done that if he thought he was an upgrade obviously they like Keiland for what he does on special teams and his toughness.


I dont agree with Lavar alot but he is right on alot of these. And Briscoe proven he can score td's Hankerson-Robinson-And Morgan been bad as # 1 WR's we need a guy who can get us touchdowns atleast.

we hardly throw the ball in the redzone buddy. Our rbs have 6 tds, qb has 6 rushin tds. That's 12 rushing tds in 9 games this season. Last year we had 8 rushing tds all year. Please look at the facts, stop ignoring them folks.

You think that might have to do with our Wrs not having a lot of tds?

Irregardless. Santana Moss has 5 tds in 9 games. Briscoe had 6 tds in 16 games last year.

THe truth is the truth.. Next!

So, in summation Redskins fans, calm down. We knew the play-offs were a long shot this season and yes we had a nice start but the wheels have fallen off with a defense that couldn't afford any injuries and has been hammered with some severe ones. If next season with everyone healthy we're 3-6 again then I'll give you permission to go nuts but lets put the pitch forks and torches back in the shed. Try to enjoy the games on Sunday and if they play terribly turn it off and go do something constructive. Fly a kite, paint a picture, stuff bananas up the tail pipe of a Cowboys' fan's car. But by all means don't let the Skins give you an ulster, at least not this year's team.



I didnt even read the article, but to agree here that the playoffs were a long shot but then in another forum say if not for the injury to Orakpo and Carriker we would be 6-3 (due to a improved D and us allowing less points) and in good position going forward for a playoff spot is very suspect.
if we are honest, the talent level of our team is 4th in the division.

I didn't expect us to score as much as we have before the season. I was wrong. We've scored a lot! If we had Orakpo, Carriker and Meriweather we would slow down and stop teams more. We'd get more pressure on opposing qbs and have our most talented safety.

What I did was go off of last years 23 points given up a game. Then put it up against how many points we've scored in every game this year. That's how I got to 6-3


Our talent level is 4th in the division but if not for the injuries we would be tied for 1st place in our Division Confused Confused Confused

currently yeah, but that doesn't mean we make the playoffs. Have you looked at our last 7 games?

Washington Redskins Schedule
1. 11/18: Eagles vs Redskins


2. 11/22: Redskins vs Cowboys


3. 12/03:Giants vs Redskins


4. 12/09: Ravens vs Redskins


5. 12/16: Redskins vs Browns


6. 12/23: Redskins vs Eagles


7. 12/30: Cowboys vs Redskins

Where's the wins in the second half of the year? Maybe we split with the divisional teams and beat the brows. That's 3 wins. With or without Davis, Garcon, Rak, Carriker, Neild and Meriweather this team is a 6 or 7 win team. I guess if we were all healthy we'd have 5 or 6 wins right now, not 3. Then we'd get 3 wins down the stretch and we'd get 8 or 9 wins. Trust me, I am shocked about this teams offense and how great Griffin and Morris have looked. I'm not shocked about our struggles in the secondary.

If we were 100% healthy this year that was possible. I see that now, trust me, I love being wrong about our offense!!

Very Happy Cool Wink

Where's the win's? Here you go Eagles, Eagles, Browns, Dallas (at least once) and we played a hell of a game against the Giants without our best so with the best I'd for sure give us W. Thatz gives us a 11-5 record.

Mike, I'm pretty sure they didn't call as many run plays in the 2nd half because Morris was shaken up with an injury and Royster looked ineffective.


Morris had a sore shoulder and even though Royster looked ineffective, its mainly because he is called upon during pass plays. So if they would have ran him more, because he has proven he can get the yards when needed, it would have stabilized the defense and at least kept them honest instead of allowing them to pass rush and have RGIII under duress for most of the 2nd half.

Huh?

We're 3-6...how in the hell are we gonna end up 11-5??

And you indicate 5 wins, so that puts us...at best...8-8.

My response on this forum was in response to what Turtle said in another. Witch is this here.

It's not an opinion it's a fact and we gave up just 23 points a game last year, if healthy, this d would have been the same as last years.

What does that mean?

Week 1: WIN
Week 2: WIN
Week 3: WIN
Week 4: WIN
Week 5: loss
Week 6: WIN
Week 7: WIN
Week 8: Loss
Week 9: Loss

You insert the healthy front 7 from the 2011 Washington redskins into the 2012 offense and surprisingly this team is 6-3 right now. Not 3-6!

You see how he flip flops his statements. Apparently if not for injury we would be 6-3 instead of 3-6, but then he goes to say we wouldn't even make the playoffs rite now if we were 6-3 because of our schedule going forward. He asked were would the rest of our win's come from after the bye week (if we were healthy and had a record of 6-3) We would beat the Eagles (twice), Browns, Cowboys (at least once) and give the Giants a run for there money in a rematch in witch I think we win. This is were I get a record of 11-5.

I'd love to believe that but, I don't.

So, in summation Redskins fans, calm down. We knew the play-offs were a long shot this season and yes we had a nice start but the wheels have fallen off with a defense that couldn't afford any injuries and has been hammered with some severe ones. If next season with everyone healthy we're 3-6 again then I'll give you permission to go nuts but lets put the pitch forks and torches back in the shed. Try to enjoy the games on Sunday and if they play terribly turn it off and go do something constructive. Fly a kite, paint a picture, stuff bananas up the tail pipe of a Cowboys' fan's car. But by all means don't let the Skins give you an ulster, at least not this year's team.



I didnt even read the article, but to agree here that the playoffs were a long shot but then in another forum say if not for the injury to Orakpo and Carriker we would be 6-3 (due to a improved D and us allowing less points) and in good position going forward for a playoff spot is very suspect.
if we are honest, the talent level of our team is 4th in the division.

I didn't expect us to score as much as we have before the season. I was wrong. We've scored a lot! If we had Orakpo, Carriker and Meriweather we would slow down and stop teams more. We'd get more pressure on opposing qbs and have our most talented safety.

What I did was go off of last years 23 points given up a game. Then put it up against how many points we've scored in every game this year. That's how I got to 6-3


Our talent level is 4th in the division but if not for the injuries we would be tied for 1st place in our Division Confused Confused Confused
currently yeah, but that doesn't mean we make the playoffs. Have you looked at our last 7 games?

Washington Redskins Schedule
1. 11/18: Eagles vs Redskins


2. 11/22: Redskins vs Cowboys


3. 12/03:Giants vs Redskins


4. 12/09: Ravens vs Redskins


5. 12/16: Redskins vs Browns


6. 12/23: Redskins vs Eagles


7. 12/30: Cowboys vs Redskins

Where's the wins in the second half of the year? Maybe we split with the divisional teams and beat the brows. That's 3 wins. With or without Davis, Garcon, Rak, Carriker, Neild and Meriweather this team is a 6 or 7 win team. I guess if we were all healthy we'd have 5 or 6 wins right now, not 3. Then we'd get 3 wins down the stretch and we'd get 8 or 9 wins. Trust me, I am shocked about this teams offense and how great Griffin and Morris have looked. I'm not shocked about our struggles in the secondary.

If we were 100% healthy this year that was possible. I see that now, trust me, I love being wrong about our offense!!

Where's the win's? Here you go Eagles, Eagles, Browns, Dallas (at least once) and we played a hell of a game against the Giants without our best so with the best I'd for sure give us W. Thatz gives us a 11-5 record.


Huh?

We're 3-6...how in the hell are we gonna end up 11-5??

And you indicate 5 wins, so that puts us...at best...8-8.
its been a long discussion, over multiple threads. I was saying our D was good last year 13th, 12th vs the pass proving that after being the 2nd worst in the league in 2010. When Hasslett has talent and we are healthy, he can turn around a D and make it good.

I said go by average points scored against us last year and go through the first 9 games. That puts us at 6-3.

Then I would see us over the last 7 winning 2 to 4 games. 21atw thinks we'd win 5, lose 2 down the stretch if we had last years D and we'd end up 11-5.

If we fix the secondary , Carriker, Orakpo and Meriweather stay healthy next year and so does Garšon. I could see us 10-6, 11-5.

I expected an up and down year and our secondary to look abysmal, and be one of the worst secondaries in the league. Doesn't seem like my thoughts were too far off. Laughing
