    I'm so sure the Redskins will win more than four games, that if they don't, I will burn every article of Skins gear I have; every hat, jersey, picture, autograph, EVERYTHING. Whatsmore, I will never leave my house without a visible Giants, Eagles AND Cowboys logo somewhere on my person at all times.

    No ****ing way we win four or less. None.

    I stopped taking the article seriously when he said Tony Romo has become a "elite" quarterback

    it's a typo... he added an extra "e" to elite... it's supposed to read "lite quarterback"

    IMO, it's gonna be a rough year. New coach, new system, kinda new line, declining RB, 1 receiver worth a hoot and suspect D-line.

    It's nice to have a professional back in charge, but it's gonna take awhile. I don't think we'll win any more than 8 games, probably six

    Romo....elite QB?


    Uh...right....


    BTW, Sarge-here's a wild prediction for ya-we'll beat one team we shouldn't (on paper) and lose to one team we shouldn't (again, on paper).

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    I just find it incredibly amusing how the media is playing the Cowboys/ Super Bowl in their own stadium angle.

    I will say this, the NFC East is over rated this year, last year too for that matter. In reality not one of the four are SB contenders.

    I believe the Shanahans and a Defense that actually causes turnovers is worth five more victories than last season, minus one for a tougher schedule. I can see 8-8. Being a Skins fan, I wouldn't exactly be happy with it but I could accept it after last season. If we go 4-12 again, SOMEBODY'S head had better roll.

    On a side note, few things piss me off more than a naysaying mediot who turns out to be right. I don't think this guy is one of them.

    Nothing new here, man. Dallas love is everywhere, every year. Once the media personalities are proved wrong, it never comes back up.

    And by the way, what a ridiculous read that was.

    What is disgusting is that it is a media love affair only. Whenever I travel and I see NFL gear being sold, I always ask the vendor who the most popular team is. The Cowturds are never a top seller. It is always the Steelers, Packers or whoever the local team is. The Cowgirls have never been the most popular according to local vendors I have asked in various markets throughout the country.

    Anyway, I see a crowded board in the NFC East. all 4 teams are likely in the .500 range, give or take. It will be interesting to see how Kolb handles things in Philthy.

    By the way, here's the "media" author of this piece:

    I believe it. But like I said, once they're proven wrong it never comes back up. Their cowboys love just follows them to the next season/game.

    On NFL Live, Antonio Pierce just suggested the Redskins win the NFC East. They did a segment on the failings of the Cowgirls and Gnats with Darren Woodson and Pierce. Of course, Woodson was the homer we expect and picked the Cowgirls to win the NFC East suggesting their atrocious pre-season performance on kinks that need to be ironed out. Of course it has nothing to do with their terrible O-line. On the other hand, Pierce chose the Redskins basing his claim on the best QB in the Division, McNabb.

    Although, in the next segment Woodson suggests the Redskins are legitimate contenders with Donovan at the helm but are in trouble if Rex has to come in.

    Who knows? Just thought it was interesting to see Pierce give the Skins so much respect.
