Default Redskins next week - can we beat them?

Seriously - can this offense beat them?

Looking for someone to chime in regarding the matchups on each side.

Thanks

How many bubble screens and slants you think we can complete before they figure us out?

Maybe we'll try to run the ball more than 14 times next week?

I'm ready to look at next week - this was a game that I expected a loss in so let's move on and get ready for Washington.

We're still at the top of the division - i'm not ready to cry that we're finished. Far from it in my eyes.

We are struggling on offense, but we are a better team than Washington. We should win, even on the road after a short week. We have too many weapons if Orton just plays smart, we have the defense to get it done. I don't know how many points we put up, but I see us keeping Washington under 20, maybe holding them to 10. Should be enough for us to win

We just played what are arguably the two best D's in football in back to back weeks. The Redskins are a horrible team with an awful Offense. We should be able to win comfortably in this game unless something very odd happens.

Yes, we'll beat them. McDaniels better get his offense hummin. SD at Denver is in doubt at this point. They have a great young QB and we have Orton. Doesn't matter how good the defense is if you can't score points.

It should be a nail biter. Maybe 6-3 or so, either way.

I'm trying to keep your perspective, but sometimes I wish this team would flat out suck all year. They always come out of the gate looking great and then piss it all away, it's so ****ing frustrating. I can see sd breathing down our throats now, and it makes me ****ing sick to think we are going to have to go through the same crap as last year.

Yes we are on top of the division, now. How ****ing long is it going to take to choke it away? Great, we play the ****ty redskins next week so we can build confidence and then get our asses handed to us by sd at home.

Just seems like they are just good enough to crush my soul every season. It's frustrating. Goddammit I need to go to sleep.

Goddammit, I need to to bed.

I totally feel your frustration

that said, this team still doesnt feel like its one ready to break apart at the seams. But the offense is just breeding zero confidence right now

I tried to edit that last line out of my post but my phone won't let me scroll before anyone points out how stupid it sounded.

One of the 3 worst teams in the league, missing its best player? I like the Broncos chances of winning by 14+.

Does it make me a bandwagon fan because I'm pissed that they looked like crap tonight (on offense)? The D was there mostly, you just can't expect them to do everything.

I think the line is about right but this is the crap they do to me every year. a great game to keep me interested, then totally **** the bed. Ugh.

You can look at it 2 ways:

Yeah we sucked tonight


but......


We've lost against 2 of the TOP defenses in the league.


Stay positive guys - you can't tell me that you guys didn't count this game, at least 1 sd game, the Indy game, the NE game, at least 1 KC game, and possibly the Giants game as losses at the beginning of the season.

We've exceeded expectations this far so any more wins past 6 is great to see.

No, it's natural to be pissed as a fan. I HATE the Steelers and wanted us to win more than anything. More than beating Oakland at this point.

You are bandwagon if you are starting to beg for Orton to be benched or calling Moreno a bust. Those things are just silly and the work of people with no fortitude. This team just played and incredibly tough stretch of football.

That's what I see....if Denver can't run against the Deadskin D, then it's panic time. I halfway expected dismal rushing against the likes of the Ravens & Steelers, but WSN? No frickin' way do they make the running game totally disappear.

The Redskins have a garbage offense but their defense is tough. As long as Denver's defense continues to play well, they should be able to put up enough points to cruise to a fairly easy victory.

What?!? We actually come out of the gate slow.....then take over in the second half.....except for the last 2 weeks of course.....not sure how you can say we always start out great, then piss it away.....we must have been watching different teams all season.

I was talking about winning early in the season...

If you want to get me started on another rant about how shanny liked to piss away leads, that's for another day.

Positive note - we looked like **** the whole game

Of course we can. We should be able to beat many teams, if they can utterly shut down our running game. Do you think the Redskins can shut down any running game? Of course not. We should win this game.

I still think we'll never win a SB though, as long as Orton is our QB.
