They are 8-8
Average over the last 38 games.
My fantasy team is 5-1. And i feel this cowboys team can be almost that good.
No reason they cant go to the playoffs and MAYBE surprise a team.
Ask me again in 3 or 4 weeks.
We can hang with all but 2 teams in the NFC. We can also lose to 5-6 of them where it'd be a toss-up. That's parity for you.
Parity gets a lot of play but at some point being average for years on end flies in the face of parity because parity says you should probably have at least one break out year.
We did.. 2007.
They are not average.
They are Jekyll and Hyde.
How good or bad is this team? I don't think they even know at this point. I think much will depend on the defense. Guys are still adjusting to this defense and trying to overcome some injuries along the DL. Myself I think this defense is going to improve a lot over the 2nd half of the season.
You are what your record says you are.
Too early to tell yet. As of now we still look like an 8-8 team. Our O is in and out and out d was better for sure last year than this year so far.
At some point, yeah. But there are 32 teams in this league.
The obvious goal is to outperform the rest of the league in terms of acquiring your talent. We haven't been able to do that for a long time. I think we're batting above our average at it right now in recent drafts, and it's one of the reasons I really like the current HC/regime. At some point, though, you're right, that has to bear fruit on the field.
so are you saying if the redskins offense starts hitting its stride they would be a very tough out?
Oh, if the Redskins RG3 somehow found a way to get right, they would be a tough out. I do believe that but I also believe that there is about 1 tenth of 1 percent chance that happens this year.
Even if he were to somehow find the grove late in the season, chances are, IMO, that it will be too late because that defense is not going to be able to hang in for that long. They are eventually going to get beat down and when that happens, it's over. RG3 and that offense, only work if they have a defense that can play good solid football. They are not a 35 point a game offense, even when RG3 is healthy and in order to win without a strong defense, that's what they would have to be able to do because that's what our team and others around the NFL can do.
i hear ya..i was shocked as how the skins slowed the cowboys offense down,if that defense can continue to play like that and RG3 gets his mojo back that would be scary..but i dont see RG3 getting back to his form this year..
