    No help from the Ravens today as I suspected, so are the Ravens frauds? Can they beat the Giants or is that the Skins have truly arrived? Also, it looks like the Falcons are starting to take it easy......:mad: We still need the Giants and Skins to lose a game or two here.....

    I think its a little of both... the ravens have barely won a bunch of games against bad teams, but I don't think you can take too much away from the skins. Plus they only have the browns, eagles and us left... we have the Steelers (with big Ben) the saints and the skins. I can't imagine we win all three and its possible the skins do... scary.

    Who cares.....

    RG3 is probably going to miss 1-2 games...or if it turns out to be worse, the season.

    We will surpass them.....IF we win at least 2 more games

    Skins are legit with RG3. Not with Kirk Cousins. If RG3 misses any time, they'll tank.

    The ravens are major frauds, their division is weak so they will probably sleepwalk into the playoffs.

    I think the Ravens are good but not as good as their record. The Redskins have 2 VERY WINNABLE games coming up.

    If RG3 is out for the season (which I doubt), we'll struggle. But we'll see. We played like crap today and still put up 31 so...

    Skins are decent. Though, the Ravens ARE frauds, particularly on the road. They're average away from their stadium.

    I remember during the off season Flacco getting nothing but praise. All the "better than Romo" talk was hilarious.

    Sk*ns are going to be there at the end. We're going to have to hold serve and to beat them at home with the stupid We Want Dallas chants going off if we're going to get past them.

    They're a fun team to watch, actually. Going to be a lot of fun the next decade around the NFCE. It's better when the Sk*ns are competitive.

    I'd worry about RG3 just like I'd worry about every running QB. How well are they going to take the hits and hold up. Honestly, right now I worry about how Romo can take his hits, because he's taking as many as a running QB does right now.

    Ravens will have to up their game to be true contenders. They'd probably have to go up a full nothch or two like the Giants did last year. They just aren't that great.

    Redskins and the Cowboys are about the same now, imo. Recall that dallas lost on the road to the Raven on the last play of the game.

    Ravens are frauds on defense. Cowboys should have beaten them.

    A bit of both honestly... The ravens scare nobody and the Skins are playing with confidence.

    Its quite obvious that many teams are both frauds and legit at the same time. It just depends on what week it is. It depends on the matchups.

    Parity has leveled the playing field and we now have a lot of bad football to watch. Maybe its good from a competitive balance aspect, but its not great quality football.

    Remember in the 90's when the Cowboys and 49ers would play? That quality of play in those games was special back then. We dont have those kind of matchups anymore. We dont have that really great football anymore.

    A lot of the football we watch now is just a roll of the dice.

    Ravens are frauds, especially without Ray Lewis and Suggs healthy. But the Redskins are getting stronger, especially on offense.

    Ravens are a good team with a lot of injuries (especially on defense) and the Redskins are on the move - period.

    The MRI came back negative for any ligament tears. Just a bad sprain. IMO, I think he'll miss next week and possibly the Philly game.

    Pretty much the same reason why the Cowboys are struggling right now (although I think the Ravens are generally better than us). Injuries to players that are hard to replace.
