    I'd also be curious to find out if folks around here are more inclined to use old lady soft bottom paper like a cottenel or northwestern, or a real business taking care of type, like a scottie. ME: Folder, Over, Back to front, Scottie. Good to know

    Redskins Fans: Let’s Stop Being Pansies

    It's a shame this thread needed creating after what might be our best win this season.
  2. Cool, get to see some Brantly this week.

    And yet less and less Redskins fans are in the stadium.

    I think it would help. I'd think bringing in respected coaches like Shanny, Gruden, some coordinators, having former players coming back around and being involved would help. If it was a tree, you'd think the roots are dead.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    Probably been 8 years since I left the states, but judging from what I read and hear on TV I doubt its changed. I'm blaming plenty of things. I'm not excusing ownership.

    @goskins10 that's a very good point. It also explains the out of town point. The Raiders move to a city more transient than DC will be telling. Although, I lived there for the xfl year and they absolutely had a home field advantage. A game in Vegas for any fan is going to be an amazing experience. I wonder. If Snyder sold the team, would fans come back. If he sold it and it moved. If he kept it and it moved, etc. No idea.

    The Offensive Line Thread

    Either way, having Ty Trent and Chase out there together is far better than not only bringing in Berg, but moving your young center out. I forgot Ty was playing LG in camp.

    It would have made more sense to kick Trent inside to Guard at have Ty at LT. If you can't play someone because you're convinced hes going to be injured, why is he even on your roster. Best 5 should play. Every game matters. Dont screw with a young center and new QB.

    Hes always been pretty good at run blocking. Pass blocking isn't great at, but it's hard to attack him between Chase and Trent. Now they can just plow up our gut. Chase is young too and needs every bit of consistency they can find. Moving him and being this unprepared for a Lauveo injury is pissing me off more and more.

    "Winning cures everything" as they say and yeah, I think having a polarizing leader off the field would help along with winning. I think the Zorn years and the fan card drama was still a final straw for a lot of fans, especially with other teams in the area improving. I think the product the NFL has been putting out is getting worse. I think FA and FF has changed the loyalty dynamic. I think DC is a fading market and has been. I mean, between Philly and Florida, you just had the Redskins. Now there's 3 more teams cutting into that market. That has to cut into the youth movement, which is a big part of the home field noise and merchandise sales. I think there is several factors involved. It's going to be a tough road for the Redskins in years ahead and personally, I dont think a move and other major changes we dont talk about in this thread are completely off the table.

    Chase shouldn't have been moved to guard. Berg is awful. He could have stayed awful st guard and left center as a strength, but instead they made 2 holes instead of one.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Doctson and a 3rd would have been nice.

    We can blame Dan for all we want to, but hes basically been hands off since we dumped RG3. I think Jay does a good job working with our FO. Bruce is certainly an issue with his cheap ass. You can argue the Smith trade being bad, but we're competing and our corners look good, so it wasn't an awful move. Cowboys have a garbage owner and their fanbase isn't collapsing. Raiders have had worse teams, similar competitors for the fans and much worse coaching and ownership. And they're moving again to an even more transient town. There's several issues affecting the Redskins fanbase. I dont think they're pansies, I just think it's a fading brand.

    I'm being serious. I've wanted a name change for a while and look how many people, especially the ones attacking the out of town fans, are saying it's a dead market.

    So, a point is being made that DC doesn't even have fans anymore? Then why keep the team there? They started losing relevance when Carolina, Baltimore and Tennessee all got teams, so that younger generation grew up with more local teams. Move the team, change the racist name and move on. Fans are giving up on them, so why not?
