Romo is above average, but not awesome. Sometimes, he extends plays and makes big plays out of nothing, but other times, he does really bone-headed stuff, and gives the game away. He could be Rex Grossman's twin.
The Cowboy's receivers are actually a below average group.
Miles Austin had two excellent seasons in 2009 and 2010, but has been very mediocre since. He's fast, but runs sloppy routes.
Dez Bryant SHOULD be awesome, given his physical tools, but his production has been well below average. He's lazy...and probably not the smatest guy either, given some of the stupid "off the field" stuff he's done.
Their leading receiver right now, Ogletree, is a scrub who just happens to be getting some easy balls because defenses don't pay much attention to him.
After these guys, they have some WRs who would be lucky to make the starting lineup at George Mason.
I have mentioned them too, elsewhere, and certainly do worry more about Eli & Co than anyone in out division. The reason Dallas was on my mind is because they play tonight and I am seeing the game over that said person's house. Also, I hate it most when Dallas beats us.
But I also found most (not all) of your actual comments were pretty questionable in analysis, so maybe that's related.
While I think something may be somewhat in the air for that post to get so much attention, I also have zero interest in extending any positive commentary about Romo or his receiving corps, or anything else cowpie.

I think we turn things up when we play high caliber opponents. Our best is yet to come.
at first glance.. the early line on the Falcons game is interesting... Falcons -3.
without looking at the numbers.. most people (non redskins fans) would jump on the Falcons there.
Skins average 421 total yards a game.
Atlanta only 365.
Passing Atlanta edges us out with 267 to our 242 yards per game...
but rushing.. we crush with 172 yards per game to their 97.
Here's the stat that is the reason for the line on this game..
Atlanta is giving up 150+ yards on the ground per game. We just put 150 yards up on the best run D in the league... Atlanta is one of the worst.
It's possible we could rush for 300 yards on Atlanta.
on the flip side, it appears their passing game is a little overrated, at only 20 yards a game more than we are averaging.
This might be a classic Vegas trap game with a line at Falcons -3.. most non-researchers will see that line and there will be heavy public money on the Falcons.
at Saints- Win
at Rams- Loss
vs. Bengals- Loss
at Bucs- Win
L vs. Falcons (great offense and defense is better than ours, at this point)
W vs. Vikings (we should win this, I don't believe these guys are real, lucky game vs an overly confident San Fran)
L at Giants (I think we split the division 3-3 however it works out)
W at Steelers (they're middle - lower end of the pack this year, so we have a good chance)
W vs. Panthers (they are the Saints' only win, lost to Tampa and got destroyed by the Giants)
W vs. Eagles
L at Cowboys
W vs. Giants
L vs. Ravens (They're a complete team this year, SB contender, as much as I hate to admit it)
W at Browns (We should win here, but I don't think it's as easy as others think, they've put up a lot of fight)
L at Eagles
W vs. Cowboys
So, I'm saying they end up 9-7. The thing that's got me feeling good about the team is the fact that we've been in every one of these games until the very end.
They will win a few that they are expected to lose, and they will lose a few they are expected to win.
I predicted 7-9 before the season, I don't see why they couldn't go 5-7 from here on out, and be 7-9. I also think they could go 6-6 and end up at 8-8. I don't see them losing the next 12 games.
There appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel. I just hope it's not a train.
With our offense there's not a team left we can't beat. That being said I am seeing an 8-8 finish right now.

Our other loss was to a really good Bengals team. Other then the Vikings(who I still think are the weakest in the NFC North), every team we play an NFC East team will play too and the division is close. As usual it will come down to the division games. We play so many at the end that we very well could control our own destiny come December.

Tough schedule but we'll find out what the young guys are made of. I'd be thrilled with 8-8 at the end of the year with some momentum going into year 2 of RG3.
First things first, we MUST start winning at home and establish some kind of advantage. Otherwise, this is going to be a long, ugly season.
I believe in the Redskins, therefore I'm the enemy.
We are goin to win the rest of the games!!

I've reevaluated the schedule every week. Not really sure why to expect against the saints and we looked great. Made the schedule look a lot brighter. Seeing how our defense has played since week two has made it look dreadfull. I'm not calling for heads personally. Least not yet. But come mid season I expect this board to be calling for changes from the top down. I don't see a winning season or .500 season even right now. Think we'll stay where we have been at the bottom of the division. And that won't hold good for the coaches. I think we're getting pretty lucky on offense right now. RG is making plays but teams will adjust. And even when we make plays they seem very sloppy.
