There have been posts here to the effect that people wanted other teams and their fans to fear the Skins. Well, this is kind of backdooring our way there due to other team's failures to live up to fan expextations-but, there are Bronco fans that right now are afraid of the upcoming meeting.the redskins have faced a pretty easy schedule thus far but still, they are ranked #6 in total defense....and #1 in passing defense.
throw haynsworth into the mix and you have a recipe for a tough day for an anemic broncos offense.
we had better fix our running game sometime before midnight on saturday.
no matter how things look on paper,this is going to be a tough game.
the redskins defense ranks higher than the ravens D....thats scary in itself.
then add the fact that its an early east coast game....against another team "Hungry" for some sort of redemption.
the redskins players will be looking to earn a little r.e.s.p.e.c.t. at the broncos expense.some will be fighting for their jobs and we can not allow the old "were 6-2 div. leaders" and "they're a 2-6 hot mess" thought to cross our minds.
this is one of those games where we could look back in the end of december and say....."if we had just beat the skins".
i realize if we take care of business in our division (beat the raiders,chargers and chiefs at least 1 more time each)all should be well in the afcw.
however i think it will go a long way if we have at least the 1 game lead (hopefully philly whips the bolts to make it 2)heading into the game against the bolts at mile high.
