Didn't Athlon rank Orgeron like the 80th best coach in the country a week ago? Can they make up their minds? Do we suck or do we not suck?

Every fricking year these dumbass sites say we're going to get to the playoffs or something like that. We've sucked for 5 years now, I bleed P&G but damn let's actually do something for once instead of these stupid hype articles that put our players and coaches on some pedistal like they've earned something.

Would be a very successful season if we make it to a new years 6 with all the question marks we have coming into the season. No doubt I want us to go to the playoffs, but with a new OC, replacing 2 first round dbs, 1 proven receiver who might not be good enough to be a #1 receiver, replacing a senior mlb, and doubts on the o line would be quite the accomplishment.

The only real problem is the QB. With the new look offense we alel need a playmaker at QB. I'd rather go with a younger guy and let him develop over the year ala redshirt freshmen Trace Mcsorley and Sam Darnold from Penn St and USC respectively last year.

To clarify, this comment was a knock on Athlon and their inconsistency and not on Coach O.

Washington will not be in the playoffs next year. Teams won't overlook them anymore and they have lost a few marquee players on defense as well.

I feel the same way. Obviously I want the playoffs, but I've been waiting for that match-up for years.
