I am not a huge drinker of the kool-aid that seems to be spiked following our first preseason game, but i am, however, cautiously optimistic that we are finally moving in the right direction. I say cautiously only because it is so early in the process, although i think it is beign done the right way.
There have been plenty of posts on HogsHaven about the overall lack of concern/respect that the national media is giving to the Redskins, but I have found that usually our division rivals, while still loving to give us a hard time, show us respect as opponents.
That being said, my jaw dropped when I stumbled across a posting on an NFC East-centric blog that asks the question: "Who is better, the Redskins starting offense of the Eagles 2nd string offense?" See for yourself....
This may just be the product of Iggles fans intoxicated on the delirium inducing kool-aid that the Iggles front office served through free agency (somthing that skins fans have been force fed and have grown an aversion to) or an unobservant blogger's shot at a team he sees as the "same old lolskins" (most pre-school, stupid nickname ever created).
Either way, I would love to hear what you educated HogsHaven faithful have to say about this one. Also, am I off base when I look at the comparison and can't recognize more than VY, R.Brown, Steve Smith, Jason Avant, and Winston Justice? Other than Brown and Smith, i dont see any other contributors to the Iggles this year.
Personally, I took every single Redskins starter, alrhough i contemplated Steve Smith (healthy) over Gaffney.
Tell me I am not insane!
HAIL to 'em!
