    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    Yeah I was even nervous after I posted it on here, but stick to topic and we should ok.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    The booing was absolutely well deserved. The stadium was half empty at kickoff. They ones who are in their seats were the die-hards. They are the ones who traveled, and paid more than what that ticket price is worth. And they knew it too. So they booed them. And players on this team are upset? Eagles fans have been known to be the assholes of the NFL and they've been booing a long time. Maybe that paid off for them. They hold their team accountable, no matter what. Maybe we should start behaving like them.

    Actually, Admirals is not bad at actually. Probably my second fav after Warriors. They could probably even match the color scheme with nats/caps/wiz too. But unfortunately, I agree that could be a little too drastic to appease the die-hard-keep-things-the-way-they-are crowd.

    We did think we were better than that. We thought that for 25 years. Now the chicken has finally come home to roost. If Sunday is what we got at home after thrashing the Cards week 1, things are looking pretty bleak. Packers fans travel.

    Yeah man, I was always a fan of that uniform, maybe because it reminds of my childhood, and when my idols Darrell Green and Champ Bailey wore that uniform together on the same team. Deion, Champ, and Green on the same team, what a time to be alive, lol. I agree it's the path of least resistance, keep the color scheme, maybe update it a bit and clean up some lines, and we got ourselves a badass uniform

    Yeah, I agree that we should just slap the spear on the helmet, go with Washington Warriors, and call it a day. "Warr-eeee-errrs.... come out and playyeeyaayy" I'm all for giving the new faces a chance... but we should def nuke Bruce and Dan. Yeah I'm a big fan of that actor. He plays villians so well. He was born to play Lucius Malfoy (unsure if you're familiar with that Potter franchise).

    It's why I think the only way to fix this franchise is basically a code-red. Dangerous to say around these parts and I'm sure it's a very unpopular opinion on these boards, but we need to burn it all to the ground and start over. I'm thinking like an Oilers-to-Titans type identity change. People on here our gonna hate that idea, but it's basically the only way now, whether they like it or not. If any franchise is in dire need of a re-branding, it's this one. Maybe then we will see fans trickling back.

    We've been through some brutal years, but yet here we are, still. The new generation is not as forgiving or sympathetic. Edit: I love your profile pic, me and my friend quote him from that movie ALL the time, haha. "I REMEMBER YOU! At the farm and that stupid boy" "Kill me before the war is over, will you? It appears you are not the better man..." All in our ****ty Jason Isaacs impression, with that slight lisp, lol.

    When even the die-hard, loyal fans are getting to be apathetic, we are getting into pretty dangerous territory. Never have I imagined that a week after a blowout victory, our home opener would be half-empty. As poster mentioned before, we have basically lost an entire generation of fans. I don't think anyone born after 2001 really cares about the Redskins. I was born in 1988. I was 4 years old when this team won it's last Super Bowl, so I was barely conscious of what was happening. By the time I really started paying attention and understanding the game, I was getting a heavy diet of Gus Frerotte, Jeff Hostetler, Jeff George. The 1999 season was a random gem with Brad Johnson and Stephen Davis putting up solid seasons, but after we botch the Brad Johnson situation, we go to Danny Weurfell, Shane Matthews, and Patrick Ramsey. Much of the 2000's were a blur, and it's understandable how we couldn't pick up new fans with Spurrier/Zorn circus and constantly whiffing at QB, per usual. Joe Gibbs 2.0 lit a new fire, but ultimately led to a whole lot of nothing, maybe even slightly tainting his legacy. Although Mark Brunell was solid, he was clearly past his prime, and led the door to Jason Campbell and Todd Collins. Not exactly the sexiest faces of the franchise. When we hired Shanahan, I thought we were finally turning a page, and he goes out and gets McNabb, who makes a fool of himself as this teams QB. From then on it's basically goes into recent events, from Grossman to Beck, back to Grossman, then RG3/Cousins to our current situation. If you look at this team in a vacuum from the last 25 years, we should learn to not be surprised by the attendance and lack of enthusiasm. It shouldn't take 25 years to build a winning team. The Jaguars are my favorite example of this. They start as an expansion team, make the AFC title game a year later, go back into irrelevancy, resurge in the mid 2000's with Gerard/Leftwich, then go back to the cellar, and are now a perennial powerhouse and arguably top 3 in the entire league. The Eagles were one of the worst teams in the league 2 years ago and are currently reigning champions. What else needs to be said? Excuses are pathetic for our owner and FO. Shahid Khan is the type of owner I wish we had. Esp, when rumors were floating that he'd move the Jags to LA, he stayed committed to the fans, the city and the team, and turned them into what they are, getting the right staff, and building from the bottom up. If Snyder had any integrity, class, or decency, he'd sell the team to the owner we deserve. But we all know he has none of that.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Same. Can't believe so many people on here claimed he was just a one trick pony and one-dimensional. His production could easily be replaced. Yeah right. The dude has arguably been the best deep threat in football since Randy Moss retired. His ability to track deep passes and adjust was second-to-none. That's a skill not many fast guys have. Not to mention he runs excellent sharp routes that break CB's ankles. Big mistake letting him go.

    Bruce Allen and Snyder run this franchise like a good 'ol boy country club.

    Nice. Let's make are worthless receiving corp better by adding another worthless receiver.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Fuller at least amassed 10 TDs in 3 years. Doctson will hit that mark in another 3
