    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.

    Redskins have a garbage fan base. If you boo your team, you're an asshole. The ****ing browns got more respect from their fans in a winless season than the division leading skins do during a victory.

    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.

    I think I'm on Norman's side here. So far, every time this season I enter ES after a victory it feels like a loss. There's nothing but ****ing and complaining. There's almost not a shred of happiness. It's all handwringing and focus on the bad. The negativism and determination to "keep it real" is insane. There's a segment of the fan base determined to be miserable and poke holes in every half full glass. If I didn't watch the games and know the standings, I'd swear we were a one win team this year based on the tenor and nonstop misery. Sure, fans have had a tough history with this team. My faith that the Redskins will continue succeeding is about as fragile as crepe paper during a tsunami, but we're 6-3, finally have a defense that is not losing every lead, and an offense that is letting the other team make the fatal mistake! I don't know that we should feel good about this team. I don't know that we should be leading parades, but I do think we should be high fiving and sharing a beer instead of crying into them. Right now, the fanbase sucks. It's the teams fault, but our fanbase deserves a round of boos.

    They would have arrested HaHa as well, but every time he swung he took a bad angle and missed.

    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

    Snyder has to be one of the all time great hucksters of his era. He's one lucky SOB to have gotten the money he did, when he did. Let's be honest, making multiple hundreds of millions of dollars in the late 90s through selling a telemarketing company is the 18th century equivalent of becoming king of england by selling water divining rods, or the old west equivalent of becoming president by selling immortality elixir. I once read that he at one time was leasing jets which were sending college spring breakers down to florida, etc. That's his target audience, frat boys with Dad's money. He's one of those insidious marketing leeches who insinuates himself in-between drunk-ass, or drunk craving, people trying to get somewhere for a blowout party, who have loose wallets and lessened inhibitions. He doesn't actually provide anything of substance, didn't build the planes, didn't fly the planes, didn't build the resorts, didn't maintain the resorts, he just got himself in-between two willing partners and somehow got some money. He's a sidler. He probably kicks himself for not creating 'girls gone wild' himself. He basically speculated with other people's money and unapologetically "marketed" bull****, that of which I can't even decipher looking back at it today, until someone was dumb enough to pay him a ****ton of money believing that his company was actually based in something real. Guy was a con artist who struck it big on a fluke market that was all speculation and no substance. I guess some people were ****ing confused about what the internet really was and what telemarketing really was. He was smart enough though to parlay his money into buying the washington team rather than sit on the money he got, just to wait for the people who he burned to eventually figure out telemarketing was all a scam and eventually sue him. For the first time he seemed to get a hold of a business with a tangible product. But he's squandered the opportunity, ruined the organization, because of who he is at his core. Whoever the hell it was that paid Snyder those multiple millions of dollars must have been the biggest horse's ass of the century.

    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.

    Callhan will have to really work on his pad level in the run game. I think he gets excited and trusts his upper body strength too much. He wants to bury his man and you can't always do that. Watch the film again. Note that on a lot of run plays his helmet is higher than his opponent. Ok for a tackle. Not good for a guard. A good guard is a knee bender. I tell my guard's that if they can't see the defender's chin strap then they're playing too high. If he tries that vs Ionnaidas, Payne, Allen, or even Settle he's going to be knocked on his ass. Hopefully that will happen early on so he'll realize what he needs to do. (He should watch film of Brandon Scherff; who almost always has his helmet below his opponent - hence the reason he's one of the best guards in the NFL.) It can definitely be fixed though and I attribute his bad habit to his aggressive mentality. I think he gets excited and wants to big boy his man. He has a good first step to cut off back side 1 tech; gets his helmet between the defender and the ball and gets that second power step up-field in a hurry. That's not an easy thing to do and too often we've seen our LG miss and the poor RB wondering how in the hell he got hit from behind so quickly on an outside zone run. On play side he does a good job on combos. Not super athletic in the open field but really in today's scheme you'd rather for your lineman to get in the way of defenders and impede their progress. Pancakes are nice but it's more important to screen the defender and let the RB read it out. I really like his mental acuity and footwork in pass pro. He maintains a wide base and, iIronically, he does get his butt down in pass pro after he anchors. (He'll need to anchor sooner tho vs NFL talent and I'm sure he'll realize that in training camp). He does a really good job of recognizing stunts and passing off his man. He stays active and doesn't just guard grass. He looks for work. Overall, I like the kid and not having seen Flowers play guard yet I'd give him the edge (based on potential) to be the week 1 starting LG. P.S. Watch his hand placement. Experts talk so much about it for defenders but really it's just as important for offense. He does an excellent job of keeping his hands in the chest. Which will negate a lot of holding calls and will help him to maintain control of his man. He does a good job of mirroring with his feet too.

    I know a few of you differ from the mindset I’m talking about here, but the majority of you will be in the same boat. For me, as a sports fan I’ve always found it a necessary survival mechanism to separate what I THINK will happen from what I HOPE will happen. Meaning, if I spent my sports fan-life only really being interested when I had a deep belief there was gold at the end of the rainbow, well, maybe I’d be more stable, but I’d also be far more bored. So for me it’s all about the technical possibility. In 1992 I had very, very little hope we could beat the Cowboys in a potential NFC Championship game in Dallas... I am quite sure we would have gotten slaughtered in that game. However, that didn’t matter to me— I was (and remain) crushed we didn’t get the opportunity when we fumbled away the 49ers game. In the Norv years I knew the odds of wining in the playoffs wer gonna be REALLY slim, but I still wanted to get there... You get my point. So here we sit at 5-3 at the midway point of the season. First place in division. And I think the WORST grade you could give the Redskins for the first half is a solid B. And that’s the WORST grade you give give them. In other words, we’ve played half a season and the results have been quite positive. Now, the path they’ve taken to get to 5-3 is far from pretty... but I’ve seen 3-5 enough to know that 5-3 is ALWAYS better, period. And now the crushing news about the crazy injuries and signing half an OL off the street. It’s really frustrating and deflating. Of course my head is telling me we are in big trouble and our first place status won’t last much longer. But here’s the deal. As long as the games matter when they kickoff, they will still matter to me. Consider this: let’s say we hit rock bottom and this one game losing streak turns into a four game losing streak. Yep, let’s say we lose to Tampa, Houston, and Dallas. And let’s say the Eagles WIN two out of three... The reality is that our game on MNF in Philly would STILL be for first place in the division that night. Yeah sure, if we do lose four in a row to fall to 5-6 will there be a feeling of impending doom heading to Philly? Yeah, no doubt. But at the same time I’m a Redskins fan. And if the Redskins are playing a game in December for first place in the division I am GOING to care no matter how much my brain tells me not to. And understand I’ve laid out what is likely the worst case scenario (this is also assuming Dallas isn’t running the table at the same time). In other words, there is really no escaping this season as a fan at this point. It’s probably going to take a five game losing streak to do that. Especially when you consider things are setting up much more likely this year that at least one 9-7 team gets in the NFC playoffs. So, while it might be nice to say “eh, we’re screwed” and check out for the year, I certainly can’t do that. The whole “well we’d be one and done in playoffs anyway” mentality has always been crap to me. Always felt those dudes must be a blast at parties. So here we sit in an odd position as Redskins fans: The Curse of First Place.

    People are so crazy when it comes to Kerrigan. 10-13 sacks every year. Tons of pressures. Never injured. High character. Not everyone can be a HOF player, but Kerrigan has spent a whole career being miles beyond what Anderson is, and Kerrigan still hasn’t shown signs of slowing down.

    When the Skins were leading the division (2 games up) 6-3... with pivotal matches against NFC opponents.... how was the attendance at FedEx? Dismal. And you think a game with Johnson at QB against the Eagles would have mattered? The possibility of finishing the season 2-5 and backing into the playoffs with your 4th string QB would have resurrected the fans hopes? They weren’t even there in week 2, first home game against the Colts, after dominating the Cards and starting off a rare 1-0 record. The fans have spoken. This is as bad as I’ve ever seen it.

    Dear Mr President, Please nominate Bruce Allen for your chief of staff. He has been hailed as a successful politician by a former employee, he has a family member accused of racism - disgraced by something he got caught saying on tape, and he loves to talk about winning even though he seldom does. He would be the perfect fit for your administration.

    I know I haven’t posted in a while. Not to get into why too much and make this about me, but just in case anyone was wondering my mother fell critically ill towards the end of July and then passed away on August 8th. It was very unexpected and sudden, so tough to take, hence the absence. I want to say thank you to everyone who reached out and asked about my whereabouts, you guys know who you are and I certainly know now who I consider true friends on here. But enough of that. I wanted to break my silence here because I absolutely love this move! At least with what I know as of now, which is not much more than Ha Ha is considered elite by PFF, lol. This is what those of us who’ve been clamoring for better from Bruce Allen, who is essentially the Alex Smith of football executives, were looking for. If you’re going to make a trade for a 34 year old vet QB, give up what we gave up, then pay him what we paid, YOU SHOULD BE ALL IN AND SUPER AGGRESSIVE. That’s the time to strike. Yes, have the basic overarching philosophy of building through the draft and being frugal in FA (to a degree), but wisdom is about knowing when to do things, not just what to do. Is there risk here? Absolutely. You risk affecting the chemistry Swearinger has built with Nicholson. You risk alienating Nicholson and discouraging his growth and development. You risk a 2019 4th rounder that we’ve actually been pretty decent at picking players with the last few years. But the reward? You might have the best Safety play in the league from here on out. You answer the moves from your division rivals to bolster their receiving corps’. You add another presence in the secondary that can force the QB to hold onto the ball that much longer, allowing our very good pass rush more time. And you signal to everyone in the locker room that we’re all in and they need to be, too. Now, I don’t know how much of this was actually Bruce or not, but until I find out otherwise I’m happy that he either made the move or allowed someone to make it. This is a step forward for an FO that consistently puts too much on its coaches/players to overcome, plays it way too safe in the team-building department, and/or has historically focused on the wrong positions. And although the absolutely horrendous resource management at the QB position might limit this team for years to come, these type of moves help mitigate it. Hopefully it works out, but I think it shows forward thinking and the right mindset at the highest levels. Good stuff!

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