I don't blame the D for the loss. Overall they only allowed 14 points(since 3 was directly off the INT). They were gassed late but that was more due to the offense doing nothing after that first drive.
This loss falls squarely on the shoulders of our receivers and OL. McNabb played well other than not hitting Armstrong in stride on that one big play. Receivers dropped balls all game long and the OL was putrid(although really that's to be expected).
We are a bad football team, so no surprise we'll finish with around 6-7 wins.

We screwed around too often in the red zone and settled for FG's. Not to mention, the INT via Santana that led to a Vikes FG and the crucial block in the back by Riley, which IMO, wiped out a game winning punt return TD. I believe that play would've won the game for us.
Thank God I live half way between Pittsburgh and Philly so I can start to route for a real f*cking team, and before any of you go on about a new coach and front office...stuff it! I've been a skins fan since 81' and I'm sick of this sh*t on the field. Every year its the same thing. We can blame Perry for the block, but come on, we didn't do crap since the first drive. I love the skins but I am at my breaking point. The O-line sucks, Entire D sucks, Wide receivers suck, owner sucks, coaches suck, trainers suck, field sucks, water fountains suck, grounds crew sucks, band sucks, parking lot sucks, fedx field sucks, DC sucks, paying for this crap on Sunday Ticket sucks...I guess I suck for supporting it. lol Rant over...thanks I feel better now. (I still love the Redskins, or at least my childhood memories LOL)
It's a shame when we can beat the best two teams (Bears 7-3, Packers 7-3) but lose to the two worst teams (Vikes 4-7, Lions 2-9) in the NFC North...
Guess what? That means we are not where we need to be as a football team. I thought everyone realized that already?
No where in there did I say we were where we need to be as a football team. I was stating the fact that we can beat good teams and lose to bad teams.
Also, I feel it's more of the whole Organization not being where it needs to be versus just the football team not being there...
1. Bad use of draft picks. 2. No development of young players. 3. Bad coaching choices 4. Bad free agent pickups 5. No patience to build a team from the ground up in stead we try to piece together something.
Do I need to continue...Bad Organization from top to bottom

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:54 GMT -5
Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.
Oct 14, 2018 15:11:50 GMT -5
rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
