    Stupid, stupid move. He was one of our best defensive players. I get that he was crossing the line calling out coaches, but if you really want him gone with only one game left in the season, make him inactive for the last game with a paid one game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. That will send your message. It also allows the the team to retain his rights and trade him during the off-season. With the way he was playing and the affordable contract, we could've gotten a midround pick for him. Just plain stupid.

    Mason Foster says **** this team and the Redskins get his back. Swearenger calls out the coach and he gets cut. Redskins get a guy on waiver wire who is allegedly a woman beater. This team is all over the ****ing place and has no clue wtf to do.

    Enough is enough. After over 40 years of fandom, I’m leaving the team that I have loved. The disfunction and disease that Daniel Snyder has inflicted upon this team has no cure. Until Dan sells the team, there will be no pride, no culture of winning, and no joy for the Redkins organization or their fans. It’s time to let go. I started rooting for the Redskins back in 1976, as a 6 year old kid. I’ve lived through the good and bad days of this team many times over. I’ve invested a lot of time, money, and love into this team and I just can’t do it anymore. At one time in my life, I lived in San Francisco and had Dream Seat season tickets. I flew out for every home game and always went to Dallas for the Dallas game. Went to Seattle for the playoff game up there and Philip Daniels gave me one of his gloves while walking off the field following the loss. I have so many memories of this team and it’s taken a lot to get me to this point. The Redskins have killed football for me. It’s no fun to watch, it’s not fun to follow. It’s just pain and frustration week in and week out. I’ll be 50 years old in a couple of years and I need to start focusing on the things that make me happy. I thought I was done last season. Hot off the heels of having to defend the name and the RGII situation, the Scot debacle coupled with the slow moving train wreck that was the Kirk Cousins soap opera had largely done me in. I was a big fan of Kirk’s (still am) and had thought that I was going to change my fandom from following a team to following a player. I had thought I was going to follow Kirk wherever he went. I was fine with San Francisco, I was fine with Minnesota. I left the door open because if he went to Cleveland….let’s just say I wasn’t about to jump from the frying pan into the fire. My lovely wife, however, told me that I couldn’t leave the Skins. I’d been a fan for so long and last year wasn’t *that* bad and with the Kirk situation getting settled that I had to give them the chance to right the ship. Then we drafted Guice and I decided I’d stick it out. The Skins drafted well and picked up Alex…I was optimistic that this could turn around. I was loving it this year and happy I had stayed. I wasn’t even bothered that much when Alex broke his leg. He had been struggling all season and I thought Colt might give us the change of pace we needed to succeed. Then they signed Foster. That was a tough one to swallow. Then they refuse to bring in Kaepernick for so much as a workout and instead go after the butt fumbler and Josh Johnson. They gave a bull**** excuse on why they didn’t so much as talk to Kaep and that’s when I knew the drama-Skins were coming back in full force. Then the Mason incident. Then the handling of DJ. You all know the story. It’s a complete dumpster fire and between Alex’s cap hit and our lack at about every position on the field, you’d be lucky if the Redskins announced a rebuild but that’s not going to happen. After this season they’ll say “but injuries” and go into the off season thinking they’re a player or two from a deep post season run. I can’t go through that again. It’s with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to the Extreme Skins community. I know I didn’t post much but I did hang with a group of Chicago-based fans here for a few years who were on the board. I’ve loved reading all the posts and feel like I know a lot of you just based on reading your words. I hope everyone here and all of Redskins Nation can one day feel good about the team…maybe go to the big dance again. You all deserve it after what you’ve lived through. As for me, I’m not going to follow Kirk and root for Minnesota…a lot of the reason is that I couldn’t find a decent online community that was even close to what Extreme Skins is to Redskins fans. I strongly considered following Sean McVay to LA since my brother lives out there and I’ve lived in LA a few times in my life. In the end, however, I’ve decided to stick with the home team and I’ll be a Bears fan from here on out. Since moving to Chicago 8 years ago, I was drawn in to being both a Cubs and a Blackhawks fan. I was never a fan of either sport, really, until I got here. This city has some mad love for their sports teams and it’s hard to resist. Rooting for the Bears with the rest of the city will restore my love for the game and I’m very excited for that to happen. Much love to you all. Have a fantastic 2019 and Hail to the Redskins. See you all at Soldier Field sometime! sparkosaurus

    Bad luck. Trading for McNabb only to go back to the same source where you failed the first time and trade for Alex Smith while signing them both to extensions. Bad luck Ignoring the rest of ownership and summarily getting fined 36 mil in cap space. Bad luck. Trading the farm and getting a supremely talented QB with a terrible attitude; then allowing your owner and head coach run him into the ground. Bad luck. Getting a serviceable QB in the same draft and escorting him out of town through sheer ignorance. Bad luck. 4 major attempts to solve the QB position with multiple draft picks and a ton of cash involved only to be behind square one and in cap Hell. Bad luck. Hiring a drunk to manage your draft and see him keep drinking and then scape-goating him so you can fire him. Bad luck. Consistently signing and drafting players cheap because most of them are injury prone/have an injury history and having 2 straight years of being the most injured team in the NFL. Bad luck. Winning off the field. Bad luck. ”Kurt” Cousins. Bad luck. Harvest Fest and Homecoming. Bad luck. Richmond. Bad luck. Having your head coach call out players and being candid about when they whine about practice while cutting a player for doing the same thing. Bad luck. Making a Redskins legend be your mouth piece and watch him fumble the ball multiple times in interviews. Bad luck. Hiring a highly reputable PR firm and then an NFL PR guru and clashing with both just to send them away. Bad luck. Poor Dan and Bruce. Just a ton of bad luck. I would’ve dissected more, but I came up with this many off the top of my head. I figured this was sufficient.

    My dream would be Snyder gets caught up in something that forces him to sell the team or the NFL to take it.

    How many years has it been we've been looking for a safety to perform to the standards Swearinger has this year? Off the top of my head Meriweather, Clark, Ihenacho, Goldson, Bruton, Archuleta, Doughty, Landry etc Nothing about what our front office has done the past ten years says we can easily replace a quality starter like Swearinger.

    This organization is run by a bunch of clowns. DJ called them out, and got the axe. It was expected, but I'm sure he won't have trouble finding a better organization.

    5 years/ $165 mil. $110 mil of that guaranteed. Get it done.

    This is coming from someone who is more in camp Jay. But I am upset at the move. It might take me off camp Jay because I've been on the periphery of late. DJ was polite if anything to his teammates in that interview. He tried to be polite to the coaches initially but Grant did a good job to keep pushing it and then it came pouring out and he went about how Arian's practices are much more serious and tougher than Jay's -- it was pretty damning stuff. I buy into it in part because I m a big Arians guy, reading his book now -- that dude is methodical and organized. DJ also saying guys that come here from other teams talk about how laid back the practices are here to what they were used to. I believe that part. A retired NE player talked not long ago on Sirrius about how the Redskins practices were so unimpressive to Belichick the time they shared camp that he told some he's not practicing with the Redskins again. So yeah I am at the moment in a foul mood about Jay and typically I am not.

    This team is so ****ing bad at everything. If you don’t want DJ anymore fine, but trade his ass so we get some value, a 6th round draft pick is better than just cutting him outright. The ****ing idiots in charge love to lose players who have value for absolutely nothing. RG3, Kirk, Orakpo and DJ just to name a few. These guys should garner draft picks in a trade, but we have no idea how to play the game so we lose them for nothing. Football hell.

    I think if I should ever bail on this team I don't think I would grandly proclaim it. I don't think it would deserve a fanfare or press gathering. I don't really begrudge anyone giving up on this team. They give us plenty of reason too. Besides, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy life. I just don't see the point of these threads especially from posters whose names I don't even recognize Not sure I would leave the team already declaring I have a new team either. It's sort of like parading around with your mistress before the ink is dry on the divorce papers.

    God I am absolutely loving the Public shaming by the media for exposing this owner.

    This team is absolutely humiliating. Salt in the wound: Who's going to want to come here? Take on GMSM, run him out of town. Take on LaFemina, run him out of town. Who in their right mind would actually want to work here? We're never getting a good GM. Bruce Allen needs to be banned from the goddamn organization.

    So instead of fining and benching DJ in a meaningless game next week, we cut one of our top defensive players, creating another hole especially with Nicholson's status uncertain, for making comments that are 100% correct about Manusky being a garbage horrid defensive coordinator? I cant take another year with him and Bruce smfh

    if this team wants to be taken serious, Jon Allen needs to be the defensive captain.

    Personally I cannot stand players going to the media and calling out coaches. True or not you handle that within the team. It shows a lack of unprofessionalism. There are other ways to handle that conversation and a hot take after a tough loss is not the way to do so. It's a losers mentality. I did not like it when Chris Baker got in Berry's face and I hate this kind of thing now. Not a Manusky fan but this is not the way to do it.
