    I can't decide if the Titans were good or were made to look good, their running game was almost given the VIP treatment, velvet rope lifted and through you go sir, enjoy your six points.

    Yeah, very much looks like that was just a stuttering start for the Skins and now it is beginning to click.

    Defence was magnificent last night. Thompson is looking a great utility player and Perine looks like he's going to be decent. (Spent the last few months calling him Per reen, only to now found out it's pronounced Pea rine.)

    Tough ask getting into work for 9am this morning but what a win! The Chiefs are due an off day so why not be next Monday, Id have bitten your hand off if you offered me 2-2 after the first 4 so its almost like a free shot against KC, beat them at arrowhead and people will start to talk about WSH as a post season prospect, lose and we are back in the pack but with arguably 2 of our 3 toughest games out of the way.

    After 49ers and Eagles the Dallas followed by Seattle games don't look as tough as they did at the start of the season. If we can get ourselves into the Vikings game at 5-3 I would certainly fancy our chances.

    Cousin looks to be getting closer to his 2016 form every week behind an ever improving O-line and with Kelley and Reed both to still come in the offence, if the defence can provide that level of performance every week then who knows.......

    The key to Cousins is to give him protection, which they did brilliantly last night. One failing he has is that he just isn't very mobile, so protection is everything. We all know he has a great arm. Where he has struggled has been where he has rushed throwing his passes.

    Trump really stirred the pot this weekend, some teams didn't even come out for the anthem, Villanueva from the Steelers was the only one to come out and stood in the tunnel whilst the rest of the team were in their locker room, he served in Afghanistan prior to a career in football

    The guy is a clown and typically, in a normal Trump stylee way, he wouldn't back down and stuck by his comments. Ridiculous to talk of sacking people for not standing for the national anthem.

    He also uninvited the Golden State Warriors from a White House visit after they had already decided not to go. It's amazing to think George Bush used to be seen as a figure of fun when he's a model of poise and dignity compared to this clownshoe.

    The Redskins defense held the Raiders to 128 total yards, the fewest yards allowed by the Redskins since Oct. 12, 1992.

    Wow! We were truly magnificent it has to be said and you have to remember that this was in spite of giving up two turnovers well in the redzone for them. Pretty much gifted them points.

    Besides that the performance was flawless and this was without our number one running back and just about the best TE in the entire NFL.

    The Cardinals missed opportunities though. They had Dallas on the rack early on.

    Think the biggest surprise for everyone this season so far has to be the 0-3 Giants.

    True. Definitely a massive surprise with the giants. If we can sneak in a wildcard I’d be over the moon.

    How much do you think the Falcons will dominate the NFC this year? We looked so strong against the Packers, but then folded against the Lions when the crowd started to get loud and the momentum began to change. I like that Sark hasn't change much offensively but added a little college ball into the mix.

    Definitely have the talent to make the Superbowl again, but maybe there's question marks on their mental strength. They should have put that Detroit game to bed, but very nearly lost it at the end and were lucky not to have.

    Bit of a weird year so far, what with the Giants 0-3, Seattle 1-2 and the Pats soundly beaten at home on the first day of the season

    You have done a lot better than recent SB losers have done in their follow up season, its been a tough opening run and you've come through 3-0. The win against the Bears looks better now after their win against the Steelers, although that was an out of sorts Steelers performance. Beating GB and one of the best QBs in the league speaks for itself, although you do seem to have some sort of hold over GB and the Lions are no pushovers, they trounced the Giants at Metlife and in Stafford have one of the best 4th quarter QBs in the game.

    Looking at your schedule home to the Bills and Dolphins next will no doubt see you going to Foxboro 5-0 and the way the Patriots defence has started the season you have every chance of sticking 50 on them, you just need to make sure that TB doesn't get 51!

    Yeah I like the look of the immediate schedule, think if we were to play the Bills in Buffalo it would be tough but at the Mercedes it should be easier follow that up with a confidence boosting walkover of the Phins on the back of our bye week I think we stand a good chance at Foxboro. I fear our division games though, NFC south is arguably the strongest division in the NFC this year. As Otis pointed out as well I fear whether Matt Ryan will struggle mentally, he seemed to melt at the Lions and rushed his motion for 2 of his INTS. Our D does look beastly though. Who thinks the Jags stand a chance at February football?

    Very inconsistent though aren't they. Maybe it will all finally click for them, but I am not at all keen on Blake Bortles, who can be very inconsistent.

    They certainly have a lot of young talent there, mind.

    Osi's remarks on the Trump situation was truly inspirational, he comes out with some very funny analogies. Bell always seems like he has taken one to many concussions to me, but I agree they do seem to aim all their remarks towards novices of the sport and they do it very well.

    Except he hasn't polling showed around 65% oppose the Kneeling boycott. Indeed there has been such a huge backlash across the USA from NFL fans ripping up their season tickets,they are calling the NFL the no fans league, An article in (I think) the Washington Post shows ticket sales are down 17.9% down in 1 week.
    The Steelers have written to fans begging them not to desert their team, and I believe the Broncos have announced all their team will stand for their national anthem this week. When the Cowboys knelt last week,all you could hear was a crescendo of boos.Most Americans are hugely patriotic,and they revere the flag, especially in the blue collar belt,who are a generally the biggest sports fans.
    The player Kaspernick who started this protest last year when Obama was still President, hasn't even been registered to vote for 10 years, so he clearly wasn't that motivated ,and has apparently subsequently converted to islam.
    Project Veritas showed early this year when CNN were caught red handed actually admitting via secret filming that they deliberately make up stuff about Trump, to boost ratings.
