    Though Lane has been more than serviceable, he doesn't have the physical presence to make the receivers start short arming balls. A quarter of being man handled by Browner and a quarter of being covered by Lane are two completely different things. It may not impact stats much in the first or second quarter, but by the second half there is a big difference.

    Well, Vegas has the odds on our Hawks at -3 (favored by 3). So hopefully those pan out for us this weekend :th2thumbs:

    Excellent. That pretty much sums it up.

    PS, I've been over there (extremeskins.com) reading quite a bit, not posting, just reading. It's great, so much entertainment. Pure comedy gold, some absolute gems. I'd recommend it! :lol:

    Classy fans

    I like the post by the mod about banning people, also says he's 13 years old next to his username lol


    I laughed at that one as well, in particular the last line:

    Arrogant Prig on Redskins Forum Staff wrote:(now if you're nice and polite---you don't even have to be smart---you'll only get the same from me )


    Because his post is the epitome of courtesy and intelligence.

    I have zero respect for forums that routinely ban people for having opinions that differ from their own.



    Exactly what I was thinking as I read the post! I honestly didn't see many negetive posts by Hawk fans at all, just talking football! That is really petty of of the MOD, he seems like a total wanker!!

    Wow, that site makes me extremely glad for Seahawks.net. You know you're intent on having a circle jerk when you blow off people looking for good discussion. I can't wait to go back and revel in the beautiful, beautiful hate when their team scores 13 points and gets run out of FedEx field.

    I wasn't clear, I meant moving him into the Slot with Thurman out. I definately was not saying Lane was on par with Browner.

  • Skins fan here. Just logging on to see what you guys have to say, and after reading had to post. I am a member of www.thehogs.net. It is set up very much like this site. Most of the people there will not go on extremeskins. My understanding from people on thehogs.net is that they are a bunch of idiots over there. At THN, you will find some idiots, but mostly educated fans who like to talk football. As long as you are respectful there, and don't spout a bunch of crap, you will be treated the same. Posts are limited to PG, but we do have a Smack Talk forum that you can go in and speak as you wish. Come on and check us out. Good luck Sunday, and HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!

    Thank you. Don't get me wrong, I am a very active member on Extremeskins, and yes there are a few weirdos. But there are also a TON of very knowledgeable fans there. It annoyed the hell out of me reading on here about how some of the seahawks fans ran into a few people they disagreed with on ES and then assumed that the entire Redskins fanbase is a bunch of assholes. I mean come on, seriously?

    Anywho, this is the first time the Redskins have hosted a playoff game in 13 years, and you better believe Fedex is gonna be rocking. You guys saw the game on Sunday night vs Dallas, the crowd was electric. The 12th man for Washington will be out in full force.

  • you might have fans, very good fans, but you don't have the 12th man, let's get that straight.... i expect it to be loud and electric, i also expect them to be extremly bummed out after the final gun... your secondary is weak, whoever that strong safety is, is a bum... We let josh wilson go, because he's subject to get burned again and again.. just like trufant, always in position to make a play, but never seemed to make them... he had a good game against dallas however... as far as london fletcher looking like Lawrence taylor out there, you can get those visions out of your head, RW will make him look like a fool...

    i actually like the skins, one of the teams i root for when the hawks are out of it.. i like RG3 , very impressive young man... i think we hold the advantage because i don't know if you're D can contain our O, but our offense can keep up with yours.. and our defense is flat out better.. so i say good competitive game, but we sneak it out in the end and advance.

  • I also lurked on the extremeskins site, but I not too surprised at all.

    As noted, I'm a loog-time season ticket holder and have seats on the visitor side. That said, the entire section gets to "mingle" with the opposing teams fanbase. Many in our section like to give them a good light hearted ribbing ... PG-13 type ribbing. Eeveryone has fun with it as both sides get a good laugh.

    Not the Redskins fan. I don't know where all the anger comes from, but these guys never let up.

    Trust me, they are not the innocent bystanders they want everyone to think they are. Not even close. They turned the PG-13 conversation to shack talk. They couldn't - or wouldn't - take any of the good natured stuff at all. They were talking from the pre-game stuff all the way to the end of game. They just would not stop. Even when Marcus Trufant turned a Todd Collins INT into a pick six, they still kept on talking.

    The attitude you see on the extremeskins site transfer onto the stands. And, there were many, many fans that were talking non-stop. It's as if they were thinking, I spent al this money to attend this game, so I'm going to get my monies worth. As for the parking the lot incidents, I heard a Hawk fan yell at a Skins fan "nice game!" and the Skins fan tore them a new a@@hole for it.

    Not the innocent bystander....more like a drive by shooter.

    The only time I've seen this kind of stuff is with Niners fans.....recent ones. They were cool when they were winning with Jeff Garcia, TO, and Garrison Hearst....it's this new group that does a lot of talking.

    But no one was as mean sprited like the Redskins fans. Remember....you're in our stadiun, our city, our house....show some respect.

I'm really happy with all our fans on this board. One thing you can respect about that board is they really stick to thier guns, they really won't allow any other fans.

    If that's what they really want, they should require membership to view, too. That way they can just have their self-gratifying drivel all by themselves.

    The attitude that they open put out to the world makes them looks like the worst fans ever.

    If I was a Dallas fan, I would hate the Redskins more then we hate the 49ers, solely because of that forum. Is that right? No, but therein lies the problem, but being an openly readable board they are representing skins fans as a whole.

    Basically they make all the legitimately respectable skins fans look terrible. I know several in real life and they are very cool people.

    Let me get this right, RGIII's leg brace can keep our offense from scoring 5 more points? Does his leg brace play safety?

    It's a little silly, but I get what he's saying.

    RG3 at full speed, gashes defenses with his feet. It keeps defenses on their toes, do they stop RG3 from rushing +100 yards, do they stop Morris from rushing for +100, or do they stop the play action?

    Either way, Redskins have to win this. For the Seahawks fans that wore Taylor jerseys with fake bullet holes in them, for the fans that threw food on Mike sellers family and daughter. For the disrespectful Seattle media that made taylor out to be some thug. Time for some well deserved pay back.

    So they have to win for revenge? Don't see anything about how they should win because they are (or can be on that day) the better football team in your argument. I guess grab onto what ever little thread of hope you can come up with and run with it.

    That must be why the Redskins were in the running for the #2 seed.

    Oh, what's that? They were 3-6 at one point and would've missed the playoffs if the Giants were worth a damn? Nevermind.

  • The Seahawks ARE the superior team. We're favored by 3 in your house. Taking into account the automatic 3 point home field advantage, we would be favored by 9 if it was at the Clink (Although, if it was at the Clink, it would probably be double digits). But sure, we could easily lose this one and it wouldn't be a huge surprise to me, but the people that are slapping their hard-earned money down on it are betting that the Seahawks will beat you guys up at FedEx. Don't act all shocked when/if it happens.

    I would hope that no one on either side of the coin wants someone to be seriously injured. Football is a violent game. Injuries happen. But it's certainly not something to hope for. Props to you for "getting it", BlueThunder. Not that props from me are needed or wanted, but I have a ton of respect for reasonable human beings. :)

    So if someone with Taylor's rap sheet isn't a thug, then who is? Give me a break; you guys need to face reality. You should have seen the threads around here when Leroy Hill was busted a second time for pot. We don't mindlessly defend our players no matter what like seemingly ALL of you guys do. I had forgotten all about Sean Taylor until I saw Skins fans bringing it up regularly out of nowhere on their own forums. You'd think he was the best NFL player to ever live and the greatest philanthropist of our time on top of that, the way Redskins fans refer to him. People should stop bringing up his name around here, and also remember that in any group of 60,000+ people, you're going to have a number of jerkoffs.

    That being said, if anyone wore a Taylor jersey with bullet holes in it after that happened, that's classless; and they deserve a solid punch in the junk, but that can't have been more than a few guys, if it did happen. If you're claiming it was en masse, then provide some proof.

    This is a fair point when talking about Sean Taylor in his early years. However, 21 was definitely turning things around. His fiance and him had a little girl, who he loved very much. As soon as she was born you could see a major difference in him. Now, if you don't believe people can make amends, fair enough. But when he was murdered, he was murdered protecting his fiance and daughter in his own home. He was absolutely once a thug, but that changed.

    In his short time, he became what is widely referred to as the best safety our franchise has ever seen. And this is a franchise with guys like Kenny Houston, among others. I don't expect fans of opposing teams, especially non division to understand that, it's tough to understand when you don't watch the team week in and week out. But he meant a lot to our franchise.

    People should stop bringing up his name around here, and also remember that in any group of 60,000+ people, you're going to have a number of jerkoffs.


    This is absolutely, 100% truth. Well put.

    The AFC West might have something to say about that.

    Of the 8 NFL divisions, only three had 3 teams .500 or better. The NFC East was one of them.

  • Redskins fans on extremeforeskins are so delusional and homerish. I guess it is okay for their fans to be unruly but when Seahawks fans do it, they are the worst fans EVA!

    Does it matter? This is just an example of how a few doesn't represent the whole like some of you guys at ES paint us. I know I wasn't the one disrespecting or assaulting fans at either game.

    And it speaks volumes of that board by not allowing any Seahawks fan input

    Why even post there unless you don't get hugged at home then? All that happens there are people patting each other on the back.

    Key being that you said, "some of you guys". I don't paint you as anything. You're looking at the vocal minority.

I'm really happy with all our fans on this board. One thing you can respect about that board is they really stick to their guns, they really won't allow any other fans.

    I think it's only a matter of time. ES was actually the first football message board I ever joined, and it led to be becoming a member here. (I didn't know such things existed, but once I found that board, I wondered if there wasn't a Seahawks equivalent, searched, and happily found.) It was a lot different then. You could have reasonable discussions as a fan of opposing teams. Heck, even Cowboys/Giants/Eagles fans posted there and had reasonable discussions.

    But that element seems to be completely gone. As others have mentioned, they have banned Seahawks fans who have not said anything remotely smackish (as well as the ones who did). It appears the if Seahawks fans post there, and don't immediately open with an apology for all the bad things Seahawks fans have ever done and recognition of all the good things about the Redskins, they are gone.

    I haven't posted there since the beginning of the week. There just wasn't any point, they're so worked up.
    I suspect I could get banned there for posting this here.

    This is the balance that most on ES seem to lack. As a fanbase, Skins fans are obviously going to be very in tune with one of their own players, who goes from being a "thug" to responsible family man. But few others are going to keep track of it, know about it, or even care. What gets the headlines? The rap sheet. What do fans in Seattle know about Sean Taylor? The rap sheet. So it should have come as no surprise to anybody wearing red & yellow when, in discussions, Seahawk fans would refer to Taylor as a thug. (And no, "thug" is not a racist term. Not even close.)

    It is perfectly reasonable for Skins fans to argue the case that he was a former thug, and then presently aspiring family man, but it seems unreasonable for Skins fans to be so upset that we didn't accord him the level of same respect they had for him. And that what the bulk of the anti-Seahawks venom there seems to be about.

    Vandalism, abuse, and assaults are wrong whenever and wherever they happen. There seems to be no doubt that some incidents of that sort were inflicted upon Skins fans by Hawks fans, and I don't blame anybody for being upset about that. But at ES, they seem to have pumped up the anger of those incidents (while blowing them out of proportion?), and converted our general lack of respect for Sean Taylor + decided disrespect by some, into perceived intense disrespect and racial hatred fanbase-wide.

    The level of vitriol there is creepy. Seriously, if they were a group of people who were actually gathered together in one place, I'd be afraid a riot would break out at any moment.

  • In the playoffs a couple years ago, after they beat us, I decided to show the colors and walk the streets. I put on full uniform stuff and headed out. I did this in Philly too, but, no one did or said anything. So I was surprised when a Seahawk fan shouted to me that I must be quite brave wearing that out in Seattle. I went at him and offered to fight and he backed down and ran off. All I needed to know about Seattle fans came from that. Open mouth, but, when it comes to action, they sissy out.


    And another guy:
    I was in your stadium in 2007 for the Playoffs, the same year Sean Taylor was murdered. The disparaging remarks that were made about ST and his family truly showed us how miserable it must be to be a Seahawks fan. I remember two of your fans putting their hands on me when I was trying to get to my seat. Next thing I know they were on the ground. Please take a guess at who put them there You guys like to talk a big game, but never know how to back it up.


    Wow, Redskin fans are TUFF :thfight7: :D

    I have to admit, I'm enjoy the back and forth with their fans, it's hilarious. Look what this guy said, and then this guy said this! Looks what this dude wrote over here! Funny stuff.

  • Redskins fan here, from Washington D.C. Looking forward to this week's game. The national media seems to be behind the Seahawks.

    While I respect your team, I can't say I agree with the sentiment that you guys will come to DC and walk all over us en route to the Divisional round. The Seahawks are probably the best home team in the league. But, away from home, your team is less imposing.

    While the trash talk from Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Bruce Irvin & your local radio hosts is good for entertainment. I don't think it's the smartest thing to do. Your franchise is on the other side of the country, and quite frankly, you will likely have no more than a handful of fans here. Giving the fans added reason to get liquored up and harass your offense makes little sense to me. But, the game is played on the field--so we will all see.

  • 2007 has nothing to do with this weekends game.

    Anyhow Ill break it down the way I see it.
    The Seahawks have a stout defense. Probably the best secondary in the league. Linebackers I say are towards the top and Dline is solid. I would say best Dline belongs to the Giants, Best linebackers are the niners. But Seahawks Linebackers are no joke either they will be tops in two years time.

    Seahawks Offense. Well to me its Lynch and a mobile QB in Wilson the poormans RG3. Wide receivers are not exactly a strength for the Seahawks. The offensive line has two of their starters out which could be a problem. But LT is Solid and probably a Pro Bowler.

    Seahawks Offense vs Redskins defense.
    Well Redskins defense is solid against the run. We are close to tops in the league. I dont see Lynch going off on this one. If I am correct all the games Seahawks have won Lynch has played a big role in those wins. So stop the run stop the Seahawks offense. I just dont believe Wilson has developed enough this year to win this game. I think Wilson will eventually be a whole lot better. However I just think he benefits from a strong defense and a strong running game.
    I know the Redskins supposedly have one of the worst pass defenses. But they are hot as of late. Deangelo Hall managed to shut down Dez Bryant. That does not bode well for the Seahawks no.1 in Tate or Rice whoever that maybe? London Fletcher is probably going to spy Wilson and Kerrigan is going to contain Wilson all day.

    Redskins Offense vs Seahawks Defense

    Not going to fake the funk. Seattles defense is as real as it gets. Real nasty. But they are a young group and a new group. So anythings possible. Love Cam Chanceleor he reminds me of Sean Taylor.

    Anyhow for the breakdown. I think this is a slow game. For the most part Seattle's corners contain our WRs but get hit with a couple Big Playaction plays. Alfred Morris will get his 100 yards and RG3 will get about 180 yards passing and 50 yards running. Seattles defense is tough but they did give up 100 yards to Gore earlier in the year. Its not impossible the no.1 rushing attack in the league couldn't get 100 plus.

    Skins 21 Seahawks 17

    If the Wilson can prove me wrong and exploit some weaknesses of our pass defense then that is the key for Seattle to win. I just dont see that happening. Anyhow good luck to you guys you will need it. :D

  • Interesting SkinsfortheWin, but I'll have to disagree with you about Russell 'Last name' Wilson.

    We've seen him put the team on his back and carry them to wins. He has the 'it' factor, he's special. Sounds like you haven't seen it yet... which is fine. But oh man it's there. Trust us.

    Anyway, excited about the game, haven't seen your team I guess since last year we played right? Keep hearing about this new running back you guys got, and some new QB? ;)

    We know Marshawn Lynch is a beast. But, so is Alfred Morris. We also played your team last year--with Marshawn Lynch, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas, and Cam Chancellor.

    Marshawn had 100+ yards
    Browner & Sherman both had Interceptions (of Rex Grossman)
    And the Skins still controlled the game with a lesser RB & QB, and a much weaker WR Group.

    Yes, Russell Wilson is a good QB. But, do you really think he makes up for the improvement on our side of the ball with RGIII, Morris, Garcon, Josh Morgan?

    We doubt it.
