The Commanders are 1-2 three weeks into the season, not a terrible spot to be but it certainly puts them in a particularly dire need for a win on Sunday against Dallas, lest risk falling to 1-3.
The Sports Junkies tossed around the idea of whether being in this position now makes their Week 4 matchup against the Cowboys a 'code red' game.
"And though EB doesn't want to call it a 'code red' game," said John-Paul Flaim. "I will tell you this just based on social media — and I know social media doesn't mean that much — but our listeners who are Commanders fans believe if they lose this game, it should be a Titanic Monday."
"Oh really?" John Auville reacted. "They're in that sort of panic mode already?"
"Yeah," Flaim said.
"I mean 1-3 is not a death sentence," said Auville. "I mean you don't want to be 1-3. You'd much rather be 3-1 or 2-2. But I think you can recover from 1-3. Now, if you get into like 1-4, 2-5, then you're digging yourself a hole because then you're getting close to midseason."
