    Redskins fan here and I come in peace.
    I’m not here to troll or to make asinine comments like “We’ll beat you because you guys suck…blah, blah, blah." I’m here because I’ve been reading your board all week and it simply puzzles me how arrogant and overconfident some here are about this weekend’s game. I mean, I’ve read comments like:

    “You guys have No Shot.!”
    “Our team is better than yours at every position”
    “You won’t score more than 13 points on us”
    “We’ll hang 50 on ya”

    Really? I mean really….some speak as if the Seahawks are traveling across country to play the Maryland Terrapins this Sunday.
    I get it, your team is very balanced, young, well put together, hungry, and playing exceptionally well right now.
    But…...so are the Redskins. How can you rationally conclude that a professional team that has run off 7 consecutive victories and hosting a home playoff game has absolutely zero shot at winning number 8? I don’t care who that team has played. You can only play who they put in front of you.
    And the statement that someone here made that “If the Redskins played in the NFCW they’d be 6-10 at best this season” seems very misguided. The NFC West was extremely top heavy this season.
    49ers 11-4-1
    Seahawks 11-5
    Rams 7-8-1
    Cardinals 5-11
    While the argument could be made that the NFC East had more balance (albeit in a down year)
    Redskins 10-6
    Giants 9-7
    Cowboys 8-8
    Eagles 4-12

    The only team in the division that absolutely sucked eggs was the Eagles. Somehow the Redskins finished with a 5-1 divisional record. Yes; 50% of the NFCW was very good (49ers and Seahawks). Whereas, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone objective who would claim that both the Giants and Cowboys (though inconsistent this year) completely sucked. So 75% of the NFCE was at least above average. (If it were not for the Redskins, both the Giants and the Cowboys would have finished 10-6).

    Please don’t make this about our team mascot or fight song. I'm talking Football here. No, not EVERY Redskins fan is an idiot. Nor is every Redskins fan lacking in football knowledge. I can say with full confidence that I can discuss X’s and O’s with ANYONE. (I played 3 years division 1-AA ball and coach HS football). So please don’t try to tell me that schematically the Redskins have “No Shot”.
    You guys have a very good team, not denial here. But this is the NFL; you just don’t win 7 straight without doing something right.

    Am I saying with 100% certainty that the Redskins will win this weekend? No. But do I think we have a darn good chance? You bet I do.



    So you're making the argument that three above average teams and a crap team makes for a tougher division than two stud teams (don't take my word for it, look at the end of season rankings), a mediocre team and a crap team because....there's more balance? Seahawks outside their division? 8-2. Redskins? 5-5. You feasted on an inferior division homie, but hey that's exactly what you are supposed to do. Just don't think you are on our level.



    No sir, I am making the argument that to say the NFCW is miles above the NFCE is ridiculous.

    "On our level" LOL...my friend...this is exactly what I'm referring to. Some here are waaayyy too confident heading into this game..Like the Seahawks are the 85 Bears...

    These are two young, talented, and confident squads who are extremely hungry and motivated. If the Seahawks execute, limit mistakes, and have a superior strategy, then they will win. Likewise, for the Redskins. But in no way shape or form will one team lose simply because they weren't "On the other team's Level." That's just silly fanboy talk.



    You aren't on our level. Our defenses and special teams aren't even close. Your team can win, if the Seahawks turn the ball over and beat themselves, which with their road woes could happen. If this game was at the Clink it wouldn't even be a problem. If both teams play close to their capabilities, you lose.

    I'd agree with this, let the man rest in peace. Sounds like Redskins fans have a special place in their hearts for this guy, which I totally understand, and respect.

    It's kind of like for me, when I'm browsing a Redskins forum, and see some smack talk directed at Seattle (not the team, but the city), with some pretty bad comments about Kurt Cobain or Layne Staley..... ouch, low blow. Somethings should just be off limits. imho

    Couldn't agree more. No offense to you, bburggold. You're cool. But it's your fans that aren't letting this die. Heck, most of us totally forgot about the entire deal. Not to mention Taylor himself. It seems your fans took a couple small isolated incidents and blew them up to ridiculous levels, creating some insane rallying cry to to run with 5 years after the fact. It's really sad. If your fans would just shut up about it, none of us would've even thought to talk about it. Your fans have slandered, accused, and antagonized us as a fanbase. All it did was provoke. This is sadly all on the same fans playing the victim card. Ridiculous and stupid as hell.

    And amazingly, all these Redskins fans were there all of a sudden, so their slanderous stories can't be challenged.

  • I remember after that game, there was 1 report that I remember that a lady got a hot dog thrown at her outside the stadium, and she got ketchup on her jeans.

    There were pictures up about it, stories, blogs, it apparently was a big deal.

    Over the years, it seems the stories have grown and grown, and multiplied. Urban myth level now apparently.

    Hey lady, from all of Seattle, I'm sorry about the ketchup on your jeans!

    haha...it all seems stupid now to me. One hawks/skins fan acts like an idiot doesn't mean all are the same...i think most fans are cool in general.

    and that logic goes for every team....even the eagles but that's a stretch lol

    This is coming from a die-hard ST fan...i mean he is immortalized in my eyes. I always wear #21 jersey and probably always will

    I'm ready to let it go and forget about it. If I see anyone bringing this up I'll tell them to drop it. I agree we are the ones that need to let this go...

  • Harperville,

    Lol...okay..I get it now...The Redskins are not worthy of sharing the same field with your All-Mighty Seahawks.. The only way they have a snowball's chance in hell of winning is IF your team GIVES them turnovers (not have them forced), and beat themselves...How the Redskins play, will have absolutely nothing to do with the outcome of the game....right?

    Funny, I seem to remember just a few years ago when the Seahawks seemed to "NOT" be on the Saints level with a losing record in the first round of the playoffs yet somehow, someway, magically pulled off the victory...

    Fortunately, an actual football game will be played on Sunday...

  • pinksheets wrote:Yeah, the Redskins offense, if you take the whole year's stats, has been slightly better than the Seahawks. If you look at the last chunk of games, it appears the Seahawks have edged them out. Either way, even if we concede offense to the Skins, the difference between the defenses is not slight. The Seahawks straight up have a very significantly better defense. They allow 9 points less a game than the Redskins.


    I'll have to say even then you have to consider opponent strength, even though there number are identical lets not forget the Seattle's offense was playing against better defenses and their defense was playing against better offenses

    strength of schedule and divisional strength means a lot in this league, if you get comfortable beating mediocre teams and thinking your all sorted out only hurts you when you meet a well rounded team, and that facet usually shows up, niners vs hawks in point..

    fact of the matter is even when Wilson and Co. were on a short leash they beat some extremely formidable opponents, the Packers, the Patriots, the Bears, the Vikings and then the Niners week 16 ofter they opened they play book to chapter 2, c'mon man just those 5 teams alone share a 54-25-1 record amongst themselves, 54-25 and 1, every one of those teams having 10 or more wins..

    lets move onto the Redskins with their 5 strongest opponent wins, Bengals, Ravens, Vikings, Giants, Cowboys... 47-34-0 combined W/L record with 3 of those teams having 10+ wins, one right at .500

    does that say anything? it does but what says the most are the remaining teams W/L records, welp they lost to the Panthers, that summarizes the strength of schedule for me but I'll call it a warsh as the Hawks did suffer a close loss to the Dolphins, a team that finished 7-9

    I guess my point is that your strength of opponent stiffens you up for the finale, it makes sense that if you're beating high caliber teams and getting better towards the end of your season it also makes sense that your team may be stronger than a team that has been beating lesser opponents towards the end of their schedule simply due to conditioning?

    any given Sunday is a fact but if you cut out all the BS and survey on common sense and statistics and say Vegas is about right giving the Hawks the nodd at -3 ginst the skins? but remember Vegas gave the Hawks the nodd at -3.5 when the Niners came to town week 16 and the Hawks steamrolled Vegas by 25.5 points... ;)

    just something to think about I guess?

  • The strength of schedule aspect teaches teams how to play 60 minutes, when you get to this point of the season you learn to not let up on a team since they can come back and beat you, the line between rans and also rans is very fine and being on the up side of that is fleeting with free agency so good teams keep feeding the fire as long as their staffs are intact and players can be inserted and found to maintain the systems in place.

    As teams lose coaches and front office people and scouts the erosion starts, keeping on top gets very hard.

    N.E. seen some of that, Green Bay is the next one I think to fall from pilaging the front office and staff.

  • I hope we beat the Redskins so badly, Flynn plays the entire 4th quarter. An entire quarter with backups in a playoff game. That would be sick. I wonder if that has ever happened before in the playoffs?

    No wrath needed. He was a young exceptionally talented player who was just beginning to touch the surface of his potential. Unfortunately he lost his life protecting his family in his own home. He wasn't out at some night club, or gang-banging on some street corner. Sure he made some stupid decisions early on as a young man..but Redskins fans watched his growth as a person and maturity level. We were excited about what we knew he could become (He was already a phenomenally talented player by that time in his young career).

    He was home grown, drafted by our team not a free agent, so yes it was a tough pill to swallow when he was lost. I'm not sure if to you this is making him some sort of divinity...I can't speak for the rest of Redskins Nation..but that's how I viewed him.
    You could see his growth, because before he died he was leading the league in INT's.

    Easy now, you have your views and we have ours and you surely didn't expect them to agree did you? Lets not look for reasons to argue, lets just talk football.
