I thought I posted this days ago, but apparently not---but if we lose, and especially if the gnats handle us better than last time in the process, the huge "bipolar" segment broad will freak out per normal. We can be "uber-suck" in the broad flailing majority of posts for weeks, with various heads being called out for presentation on a platter, then win a game or two and we're paloff-bound, then lose again and it's back to Crisis City.
Been that way a long long time. I don't expect much change now.
We may benefit some from a lingering "lesson-learned" effect, thanks to the small-sized but relentless contingent who often note the intensity and proliferation of the various forms of "stupid" in reactivity. Like recently, when a number of posters were energetically puking all over our "gimmicky worn-out college offense and those in charge of it", and then after two wins many of the same guys who had written our schemes off (apparently) were jumping all over Ryan for similar dumbass comments (actually not as harsh. ).
Some posters <cough> appropriately chewed igwad butt on it.
I have said that I consider us a definite underdog in this game, but we can do this.
I have reminded throughout the year that most of us thought after pre-season that the team would end up between 6-8 wins. My call was 7-9---which I don't think is good at all for 3rd in on a new FO. Most media heads had us at less than 5 wins. And that was before suspensions and a rash of key injuries. It looks like we may make that ES majority w/l prediction.
Often when I read the board, I think these fans have a team that is either 1-10 or 9-2.
There is a large groundhog day population that posts, where memory (let alone accurate information, competent perception, or solid knowledge of the game) is a non-factor.
These are my people.

There could well be a 'let down' Monday, being as many are (blindly IMHO) looking at playoff's already.
But I doubt it comes from 10. He's due a rookie game, but I just don't see him having one.
yes you are
I have faith that our guys can get it done. But if we don't, I won't be slinging a bunch of mud come Tuesday. I'm proud of our guys, and we still have a long way to go. Paloffs at this point would be a huge exception to the rule, but I fear that many are looking at it as a "likely" outcome. The truth is, if we make the paloffs, this season should be considered nothing less than magical. But hey, I like magic. And we could use a little on Monday night.
Jumbo with words of wisdom!
I feel the same way about this game that I have about every game since I realize how good RGIII really is
that we can beat ANYBODY, but we can also lose to ANYBODY
no matter how good or bad the team is, we can lose or win any of them
also, I know the Giants manhandled the Packers, but we have (dare I say) a BETTER O-line than the Pack, and a more mobile QB
all I want from Shanny is a franchise QB <--- before RG3, now we have him

If the players want to win this game half as much as the fans we should roll about fifty to nothin.
I can only hope the team does.
It wouldn't be easy but even if we lose, there's still a chance if we win the rest of the games.
You will give the Redskins an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time you will help them accomplish wonders.
If we put in a good effort and on the day are beaten by a better team, then so be it. But if the game is there to be taken and we crumble, then I will be pissed.
