    The Caps winning and getting over the hump in '18 meant so much to everyone in this town. We hadn't seen anything like it since 1991 (with exception for the DCU titles, which do count but didn't have the regional sale) The Caps run broke the stupid 20 year; can't get to the league final 4 ridiculous curse and had a legend hoist the Cup. This run so far is great and I know I'll be excited if we are in the WS, but its not nearly at the "juice" level for me. I am still riding the high from the Caps winning the Cup

    As a Redskins fan, who has been a fan for well over 40 years, I WOULD NEVER, EVER, ROOT for this team to lose! But, as a rational and semi-intelligent (debatable) human, I look at this team: the state of the management, coaching, and general lack of discipline, and then look at the opposing team in the same way. One can only conclude that unless some miracle happens, the 49ers are going to win this game, and win big. This does not make me any less of a fan, only a realistic one.

    The 49ers D made Jared Goff look like a high school quarterback facing an NFL defense. This will be Case Keenum this Sunday:

    Its a credit to how bad we are, that Miami actually had to alter their play call to lose to us. You almost cannot make this stuff up.

    * More seriously, Atl should have traded Ryan, Brady ... I’ll not get into, Rivers should have been traded... what has he done for SD? The concept of team is lost easily, these teams all play well led by Kyle Allen, Bridgewater, *any of the 8 guys Pitt has played, Jacoby, Trubisky/Daniels/etc. Matt Stafford, doesn’t matter. He’s gifted, he’s not making up for the deficiencies his contract creates in a league of parity & massive injures. Paying these guys is ridiculous. I’d pay Watson & Mahomes... but to make someone the highest paid QB in the nfl, you take so much off of your 53 man roster, it’s just not worth it. Flacco is a bum & always has been, just play QBs on rookie contracts & move them when some GM thinks they’re awesome. They’re all talented, but they’re all just guys who can only function as part of 53... lessen that 53 for the QB & you’re just following the herd. Why pay Kirk or Goff, what is wrong with people. They’re fine, for 10 million, they’re crippling, for 30 million. Look at how many injuries we see every week, you just can’t toss 1/7th of your cap to a guy who isn’t able to do *more than any Xs & Os can. All of these coaches know the same things, it comes down to health, lines, special teams and depth. Eli was never good & Peyton won when he was no longer even average. Control the ball, control the clock, win games. Backs & WRs who can win one v one every time, like Thompson & Terry, are the guys who make a QB look good ...& almost every QB can get those guys the ball.

    Yeah but what coach haven't we got that narrative on? Even Zorn was doing it the "right way" in theory when he came. Every new approach is hyped. It's just tough for me to believe that Jay was running practices like he was a baboon and Callahan has gotten it all right now -- and if that is the case it doesn't speak much for Bruce-Dan who supposedly are at almost every practice let alone giving him a 10 million dollar extension. Yep but his dad was famous for doing it with no name types.

    Anybody though could come at their passion in their own unique way and their opinion is valid from their own perspective. The opposite of love is indifference. Some think hating Dan and refusing to run with his new version of selling new beginnings -- is being loyal to the winning Redskins brand they grew up with. They see Dan as a loser and aren't buying the new soup he's peddling. Some think they can eventually shame Dan into eventually changing -- like the dude who spent $1600 of his own money to run the banner above Hard Rock stadium. If I recall correctly from another post you've made on this point, you don't believe in that. If so, that's cool. But there are some who do believe in it. Some think Dan will never change so lets ride with what's he got because that's what we are stuck with. And you got other variations of this, too. It's about whatever angle you got on it.

    I mean, his QB's did miss him deep for wide open TD's three times in the Giants game (once Haskins and twice Keenum). We'd have a different perception if those were caught for TD's. Can hardly blame him for that.

    i dunno, am I even allowed to criticize the thread/comment (there's more rules here than a stripclub). this thread topic is idiotic. Even if it were true that Quinn "is terrible" the play of Tre Quinn ranks around 534th on my list of problems with the Redskins. The Redskins are the Titanic, there is a gigantic gaping hole in the ship, it's going down, and you're in the dining hall of the ship complaining to anyone around you that there's a fly in your soup. Who gives a flying F about that minor problem that I'm not even sure is as bad as you describe it.

    I don't think its about hating Snyder more than loving the team or vice versa. Dan for 20 years has been selling some type of new beginnings and they've all failed. I don't think the dude can successfully run a lemonade stand let alone an organization like this successfully. Every new coach has brought some new sell with them. We forget over time because we get distracted by the new toy. Marty -- old school, tough guy, toughen the team. Spurrier -- fun and gun, will take over the NFL with his modern NFL offense Gibbs: bring back the glory years Zorn: Unconventional-out of the box style will turn Campbell into a franchise QB. Shanny: offensive legend Jay: will turn RG3 into the WCO QB that he aspires to be Callahan: bringing the hammer back I am sure the next guy in January will have a new "exciting" narrative. My only hope is that Kyle Smith just loads this team with so much talent that they can override Bruce-Dan's dysfunctional organization. This isn't me hitting Callahan, its that he is working in a dysfunctional organization that doesn't bring out the best in any HC IMO.

    Hard as they are, they can be broken: this is my second year of full absentia from the pathetic league that Goodell oversees, much less the horrible product locally. And I religiously watched early in Gibbs I before getting season tickets in 2004 so it CAN be done. The Patriots had strong teams these last two decades during the Red Sox' appearances in the Fall Classic ... 2004: Red Sox sweep Cardinals; Patriots win second straight Super Bowl 2007: Red Sox sweep Colorado; Patriots finish regular season undefeated and one win away from *the* perfect season 2013: Red Sox win series 4-2 against St. Louis; Patriots reach AFC Championship game in Denver 2017: Red Sox win series 4-1 against Los Angeles; Patriots reach third straight Super Bowl and second title in those three years. What will be interesting to see: a potential WAS-NYY Fall Classic where Mother Nature pushes the second game (in the Bronx) to Thursday the 24th. A likely 1-6 team on the road, whose President openly admonished fans in a recent presser, is a lot different than steadily consistent Pats teams.

    If the individual franchises are taking signs, I don’t think it’s because individual franchises are making decisions about China. It’s because the while league is making decisions about China, and individual franchises are making individual decisions about how to deal with it. It’s still a league wide issue. Their interest in China is not new or unknown to anyone who follows the nba. I barely follow it at all and I know about it. im skeptical about the boycotting. I’ll believe it when I see orgs apologize and people refuse to accept it. This isn’t an apology matter. If you put money over human rights that’s a intrinsic trait about you and you’re never going to fix it. You might accidentally reveal it, and then try to cover it up and apologize to save yourself, but fundamentally nothing’s changed. Likely you’ll just be more carful going forward. Do people care more about holding someone accountable for profiting at the expense of horrid human rights violations? We’ll see. My money is on no.
