    The Cowboys: Stumbling out of the gate

    The Redskins and the Romo-less Cowboys, both coming off opening losses both desparate for a win.

    And both loaded with a fanbase full of angst, worry and whistling-in-the-dark hope about how the rest of the season might go.

    Dallas fans are worried about substitute QB Dak Prescott, worried about a shaky pass D-and to a notable extent not at all impressed with the job Jason Garret

    is doing at head coach.

    (Sound familiar Redskins fans?) ...

    The Steelers-Monday Night Football-Hello NFL World!

    Well, here it is-the first regular season game for the Skins-MNF, no less-against the Steelers.

    Time to get a first look at what all the offseason maneuvering and football cookery has concocted.

    Now to the topic at hand, what are Steelers fans saying about Monday Night?

    Well, for one thing, they don't expect to just run the Skins into the ground in a ho-hum opener against a bottom-feeder opponent.

    They expect a tough, hard fought game. ...

    The Packers: Of course....but maybe...

    In spite of having a 10-6 record, the Green Bay Packers are suffering through a period during which they are simply not playing up to the level people are accustomed to seeing from them-not their fanbase, sports media or casual observers have failed to notice the cripplking effects of major ijuries (Jordy Nelson's loss looks to be huge-along with Sam Shields but Shields just might be ok to play Sunday)), less than the usual hyper-competent levels of execution-even Rodgers looks less than his normal ...

    The Cowboys: Picks Or Pride?

    The Redskins are in the playoffs, the Cowboys are at the bottom of the NFCE, and Dallas fans are wondering if they should try to win or go for the highest draft pick possible.

    Do not (I repeat) do not go out on Sunday and make any attempts to beat the Skins. The ability to trade down for value from a top 3 pick is so much more appealing than #7 or 8... We should be resting anyone of value that does not require further

    The Eagles: Not Flying So High

    I have not in the entire time I have been doing Redskins Recon ever seen the Eagles' fans like this.

    They are depressed, despondent, not very fond of Chip Kelly right at the moment and, most unusual of all, not at all confident about winning the game against the Skins this weekend.

    It's weird. There is a level of respect from a normally dismissive, contemptuous, degrading fanbase that I'm not used to seeing.

    Oh, there's the normal posting of cute hater ...

    The Bills: "Keep Hope Alive" on life support?

    Whew, the Buffalo Bills fanbase has to be the most depessed I have run across this season. Positive comments are hard to find anywhere.

    If you remember the "Doom, Despair, Agony on me" song from Hee-Haw you have captured the essense of what I found pretty much throughout Bills fan boards.

    Seriously. Rough.

    Fire Rex Ryan is a common theme, as is remembering that the Bills haven't had a playoff appearance in 16 years.

    This is ...

    Da Bears: Grizzly Bears or Teddy Bears?

    Da Bears. Under-achieving, losing to a dismally bad 49ers team, and they have a pretty much disgusted and unhappy fanbase.

    Some think the Bears might win this game, not because they're all that good but because they consider the Redskins to be as bad as they are and mabe just enough worse.


    Others think the Redskins are not bad enough to lose to the Bears in Chicago.

    The Cowboys: Trouble at the O.K. Corral

    The Cowboys are in disarray. Their fans are hurt, mad, and to a lerge extent confused-some think they can still pull out an NFCE lead while

    others have pretty much given up and some want to tank the season for a higher draft pick.



    There was even a poll among fans in one thread as to whether the Cowboys should continue to let the season tank or lose out for a higher draft position.

    The Giants: Fighting for First Place

    The Giants are coming of a bye and are looking forwrd the this Redskins game for one big reason. We're one game behind them in the NFCE.

    It's important for them. And the Redskins. And it could set the tone for how the rest of the season might play out for both teams.

    There is a lot of confidence-especially from playing the Patriots a hard fought game-but there is also a lot of acknowledgement that the Skins aren't

    just going to roll over either. ...

    The Panthers: David and Goliath?

    9-0. Now that's a heady place to be, something Panthers fans are not used to experiencing.

    It will give you a lot of confidence, no doubt, but it doesn't erase in some Carolinsa fans minds the fact that the Redskins have been playing noticeably better lately and may not be the doormat bottom-feeder of recent seasons. Oh they expect to win but not all think it will be a cakewalk.
