This is a game I have waited for, for years. Yes WE WANT DALLAS. It is past, WAY past time to rise from the ashes. HTTR

They're gonna have to put that O in full swing next week...I have a feeling that one's gonna be a shoot out.

My main concern is with the D. They should've been able to do a better job shutting down that offense. I mean it's not like the Skins were playing a Patriots-like offense...and with the season on the line, they let this game get a lot closer than it should've been. I know, I should quit whining because we got the win, but my worry is, we're either gonna have to put more points on the board, or play a lot better D if we're gonna beat Dallas.

Geez man, can't you ever have a positive thought?


Absolutely. RGIII is the best thing that's happened to this team in decades...and maybe even ever....the Redskins are a team on the rise, but they aren't there yet. Anyone expecting them to win it all this year is expecting too much. Could it happen? Sure it could, but it's highly unlikely. They've just got too many holes in that defense, which puts way too much pressure on the O to score...they have been doing it, but they also haven't played teams like NE, SF, SEA, or GB either. I will say I think this team will win another SB within the next 2 or 3 years....can you take anything positive from this?

Being the late game next Sunday, we will know whether we need to win in order to be in before we take a snap. WE WANT DALLAS

The crowd needs to give the Pokes fits when they have the ball, about 8 false starts will help us a bunch.

I agree that our D is going to be a big concern against Dallas or any other team going forward. That's not really anything new. Still, five sacks and two takeaways yesterday and we're complaining?

Great point!

I hope the Cowboys will enjoy the forecasted weather for next Sunday too:

Partly cloudy and windy. Highs in the mid 30s and lows in the mid 20s.

Says you. If the 9-7 G-strings can turn a wild-card into a Championship, there's no reason we can't.
