  1. The classic was for the 2005 Playoffs. The Skins were scheduled to play TB in TB. Tampa Bay instituted some sort of "special security code" for the purchase of tickets to "prevent" out-of-town fans from the Skins buying tickets. Somebody got this "security code" and posted it on ExtremeSkins. As I recall, a large number of Skins fans used it and literally made it "FedEx-South"............
  2. Would that be the Jim Zorn or George Allen version ? 😇
  3. Great post.  I really feel your frustration.  I grew up being a Skins fan, because it was a way to bond with my Dad.  What Snyder/Allen have done to this franchise makes me so sad; at least my Dad isn't here to see what they've done.

     

    I knew we were going to get blown out by Atlanta, and didn't even watch.  I have NFL replay and will watch soon; but I already know that Alex Smith was nowhere near as accurate in passing as the spin-masters would like us to believe.  He's got 2 more games to show something, or I'm going to really call him out anyway I can. (That's sad,because he really is a somewhat likeable guy!)

    At 5-3 We Are Now Officially Trapped

    @kleese while I always don’t agree with you - the majority of the time I do and I appreciate your insights. Please keep them coming. I joiniedExtremeSkins back after Gibbs II started. For the most part, I have merely “lurked” reading great insights from fans like you, and who had a much bigger knowledge base about football than me. My biggest problems are with the FO - Bruce Allen...... he alone with Danny have almost killed my undying love for this franchise that started way, way back back in 1969. I am just tired at the age of 60 of investing anymore of my heart in this team. They consistently do everything possible to rip out my heart. I feel so bad for my youngest son who I “influenced” into becoming a huge Skins fan like his dad. Allen’s screw up of the entire Kirk (Kurt) Cousins negotiations and chasing away the best QB that we had since Rypien was maddening. Once Kirk was gone - I initially felt like getting Alex Smith was the best possible alternative UNTIL the details around the extension given to Alex were disclosed - that was Bruce’s final FU to the Skins fan base - as we’ll be stuck for awhile. What really pisses me off is that even if Allen gets fired - he’ll walk away totally enriched while the Skins fans are stuck yet again. It also really kills me to see Skins fans attacking each other due to our mutual frustration with the team. I am almost to the same point I was after the Senators moved to Texas where I went from being a big baseball fan to a sports guy that didn’t watch a single pitch of this year's World Series. Pro football has pushed me to a point that I have thought was impossible.

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    I understand the details- I was being a little sarcastic about Aaron Rodgers having such “powers/influence” over the GB front office.

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    If Aaron Rodgers has so much power - explain Jordy Nelson?

    Some Hard Truths

    Good take. We are stuck with Alex Smith until June 1st 2020. Unfortunately, I don't see a sudden turnaround in his play (still keeping the fingers crossed). The extension that Bruce Allen keeps from seeking any veteran QB help - because they'll be too costly on top of Alex's contract. So we are forced to follow the Chief's model. Somehow we have to get lucky and draft a quality QB in 2019 draft. Alex goes into the 2019 season as the starter and we let the rookie compete for the job. The cap for a rookie QB isn't too bad and absent a turnaround in Alex's play in 2019 - in June 2020 we cut Alex. If there is a turnaround - I would still follow the Chief's model and try trading him (if they don't solve their QB problem for next year - maybe to the Jaguars.....).

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. The Bye

    I don't think that will be an issue. However, from the Saints perspective - they now have to weave Ingram into the game plan. Fingers crossed that this causes a disruption to their game flow for Kamara, which to this point has been real good...

    Game is a nail biter - 26-20 Skins

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    Nervous, I would like to predict a blowout, but when you look in the past - this is the type of a game where we seem "underperform". It will be tight, and we barely etch out a win 15-13....... However, If we do dominate - I think this bodes well for us for the remainder of the season - as one of my primary concerns with Jay has been winning games like this with ease.

    Has FO given Jay a Playoff Roster for 2018???

    Don't disagree, but @Morneblade - you are missing my point - I was specifically referring to the "luck" to the timing when you meet a team during the season. Some teams are on groove or in a funk or riddled with injuries - it changes the dynamics. For example, playing Green Bay last year when Aaron Rodgers was heathy and playing versus playing Green Bay when he was out injured. That's an example of "luck" that's outside of your control. Of course, you still have to execute and beat the team, but hopefully you get my drift.

    Has FO given Jay a Playoff Roster for 2018???

    Again, we are thinking on the same wave length, but sometimes you are lucky outside your control - like when you meet a team on your schedule that is going through injuries OR is playing below its expectations. The key is being positioned to take advantage of the situations. Typically, the Skins don't because how many times have backups beaten us. To me, this is a huge year on Gruden - will he elevate the team?

    Press Release: #REDSKINS MAKE ROSTER MOVE

    Maybe, just maybe - Hood provides the type of leadership that will help harness Brantley's capabilities......

    Has FO given Jay a Playoff Roster for 2018???

    Not to disagree with you - as I agree with many of your takes - being "average" puts you in the position to get lucky. Whether through "breaks" from limited injuries, avoiding stupid penalties, etc - being "average" (if you get these breaks) can get you to 10 or 11 wins. Then again, I always take the optimistic "half-full" belief..... HTTR!!!!
