Get 31 off the field. He keeps the drive alive by holding and then 98 gets hurt.

Not good enough to overcome negative plays.

Offensive explosion, more like implosion.

Four three-and-outs.

Is this the 1977 Tampa Bay offense?

This is a Must Win game going into the bye week.

Can't sustain a drive to save their lives. DHall picks an underthrow, a few passes to COOOOOLEY, and a nice hit by PB and the rest bungling missteps.

Your expectations are too high, bud - this is the Skins. It's who they are.

Still think Skins'll win.

Why does this defense play down to the level of the opponent???? They can contain GB and Colts, but they make 1-5 teams look like SB winners. Very Sad.

With half a pass D, we could've won this game. Can't beat Detroit & St. Louis. Can we now please stop talking about this being a playoff team? It is not. Discouraging.

Why is Heyer on an NFL roster? I don't get it.
No blocking at all today.

what makes everyone think we are so much better than the lions? We could easily be 0-8. I keep hearing on the radio, its the lions, they suck. Well we suck too. The lions are just as good as we are if not better. People in this city always talk about how we are so much better on paper. Please, this team has no talent, they cut the best talent they have on this team, Brandon Banks, that's how smart we are. They cut this guy and he's all we had this game.

This team is actually almost worse that Zorn's. Zorn's team couldn't get a turn over. These guys get turn overs and can't capitalize. These guys make a mockery out of their professional status, whereas with Zorn's teams they just didn't look professional. Hang your heads 'Skins, hang your heads

The only good thing to come out of this game is maybe the chatter about McNabb's long term contract will end. I will never get why anyone thought this was a good signing, and yes I said so at the time.

Now that Dubya's gone we have a new village idiot in town - Mike Shanahan. Rex Grossman gave em the best chance to win v. one of the worst teams in the league w/ 1:45 left and down by 6? Was Shanahan even watching the first 58:45 and what the Lions' pass rush did to the much more mobile McNabb? I think I'm gonna go throw up now.

Posted by: 1hasher | October 31, 2010 8:47 PM | Report abuse

Have no problem with the coaches move late in the game but do have a problem with him being forthright in why...

To say your backup qb can run the 2 minute offense better than your starter and expect knowledgeable fans to believe you is a slap in the face....Just say why you made the change...

Posted by: pentagon40 | November 1, 2010 1:26 AM | Report abuse

The last two games I just sat there thinking (both times) that I'm watching the two worst teams in the league (don't know who's worse, the Bears or the Lions - think it's the Bears). Skins need to spend all draft picks on the O-line.
