    We're going to still suck as an organization. The End.

    You guys are literally watching this situation play out with Williams and you’re still baffled that the organization can do stubborn and stupid things?

    Yikes. The Good: Tress Way - Bailed the team out more than once. Terry McLaurin - Kid is a stud. So far they aren't really using him for much besides digs and fades, but I have a feeling as his route repertoire grows, so will he. He is probably our best offensive player at the moment and he is an absolute breath of fresh air thus far this season. Flowers/Penn - We were all worried about the left side of our line. And while they aren't exactly writing the next chapter in the book, "Hogs: Ass Kicking 101," they are more than holding their own. Penn has made the loss of Williams negligible (trade him...) and Flowers has looked pretty damn good at left guard. Daron Payne - Dude might be my favorite Skin at this point. He is a problem for opposing offenses. A lot of people are higher on Allen (who has tremendous upside, to be clear), but with Allen's injury concerns Payne has been the guy that's been holding down the fort in his absence. I am a very, very big fan of what Payne brings to this team. He's aggressive, he's nasty and he doesn't care about stats. He does his job and does it well. Landon Collins - I'm not sure he belongs in good... I am putting the entire rest of the secondary in the bad, though, so I just wanted to separate him a little The meh: Seemed like they were either good or bad today. Wouldn't say there was a ton of meh. The Bad: Scherff/Moses - Yikes. What a dumpster fire. These two have combined to look almost as bad as our replacement lines the last few years. Scherff... I could buy the argument that playing next to Moses is hurting him, but both guys just seem to be regressing. Scherff is playing with a high pad level on the plays that I've watched (I'd need to watch the All-22 to get a better idea) and not using leverage. He might be having a case of trying to dotoomuchitis, but the combo of these two has been putrid through two weeks. Penalties, missed assignments. These guys are holding back a mediocre offense. But there's a guy I think who may be more to blame than them: Bill Callahan - Genius as it comes to teaching techniques. The guy is a wizard. But when it comes to implementing schemes for the run game he has, so far, been not so great. He likes complex schemes and with our injury concerns and continuity on the front I feel that is a very, very bad move. I can't get on him too much considering I don't know what happens in the meeting room, but I do know that his lines have been highly penalized and abused the last few years and its time people start looking towards Callahan a little bit. The entire secondary - Holy crap guys. Did you have a meeting the last two weeks to decide not to cover the other team's fast receivers deep? On the trips look with the out/corner/post combo that Norman is getting blamed for it looked like Nicholson was in a 1 high robber look. It looked to me that he was reading Prescott's eyes and broke on the corner route, but Dak was looking at the fade/post route. Norman was in a trail technique, so Prescott just had to throw the ball over the top and the Skins couldn't make a play on it. I'm not sure where the fault was on this... That's a coaching/film thing. But what I do know is there was a serious issue with the coverage here. And beyond that, we keep letting opposing receivers get open over the top, and it typically happens when Nicholson is playing the high safety role. Teams have keyed on something there. Fix it. Please. Manusky - soft shells. Very few blitzes/stunts/pressure packages. Poor communication around the defense. Star of the Game - Daron Payne *** Second Star - Terry McLaurin ** Third Star - Tress Way * Dud of the Game - Greg Manusky Second Dud - Right Side of the Line & Callahan - Third Dud - Secondary (minus Collins) Yes, all three dud contenders got 3 sad faces this week. Season Totals: Terry McLaurin - 5x* Daron Payne - 3x* Inside LBs - 2x* Vernon Davis, Keenum, Way - 1x* Bruce Allen - Jay Gruden - 3x Right Side of OL/Callahan - 3x Secondary (Minus Collins) - 3x Greg Manusky - 5x

    Haskins to McLaurin is a small future ray of sunshine to look forward to.

    As everyone knows, the erosion of this fanbase began long before this season started. This has been brewing for a while, when you factor in the stadium (bottom 5), the front office (bottom 3, could be the worst currently), and the coaching staff (bottom tier at best). It's not just that the stadium continues to be overrun with opposing fans at every home game that the front office should be worried about. They should also be worried about the ratings, and whose watching this team week in and week out. One disturbing trend that began to take place last year was that ratings for Redskins games locally were starting to nosedive. It became so bad that games that aired locally involving other teams (Cowboys, Eagles Giants, etc), were actually outperforming Redskins games by a decent margin. Now take a look at the ratings for the Redskins game according to Sports Media Watch. The have the ratings of each game in their metropolitan areas: — New Orleans: 51.6 (Saints-Rams)— Milwaukee: 43.7 (Vikings-Packers)— Kansas City: 39.6 (Chiefs-Raiders)— Buffalo: 36.4 (Bills-Giants)— Pittsburgh: 36.0 (Seahawks-Steelers)— Minneapolis-St. Paul: 35.2 (Vikings-Packers)— Denver: 33.1 (Bears-Broncos)— Boston: 33.0 (Patriots-Dolphins)— Philadelphia: 32.6 (Eagles-Falcons)— Dallas-Ft. Worth: 30.7 (Dallas-Washington)— Seattle: 30.0 (Seahawks-Steelers)— Chicago: 26.6 (Bears-Broncos)— Providence, R.I.: 26.3 (Patriots-Dolphins)— Baltimore: 25.9 (Cardinals-Ravens)— Nashville: 25.2 (Colts-Titans)— Cincinnati: 23.0 (49ers-Bengals)— Atlanta: 22.3 (Eagles-Falcons)— New Orleans: 19.6 (Eagles-Falcons)— Phoenix: 19.2 (Cardinals-Ravens)— Washington, D.C.: 18.3 (Dallas-Washington)— Los Angeles: 16.0 (Saints-Rams)— Milwaukee: 15.4 (Eagles-Falcons)— Bay Area: 15.0 (49ers-Bengals) As you can see, the Washington DC area averaged only an 18 rating for the Cowboys-Redskins game, which is almost unthinkable. This alarming trend continues to amplify the fact that the Redskins are in serious jeopardy of losing not just the current fanbase, but any future fanbase that you would need to sustain viability.

    The funny thing is that a properly fitted suit would make him look taller. As it is, in that picture he looks like a 12-year-old wearing his dad's suit to a school function.

    I've already decided that, God willing, I'll be the 105-year old being interviewed before Super Bowl 114 who has stuck with his Redskins since before the turn of the century, when they last won a title in 1991!! I'll be oblivious to what's going on and my great grandson will be answering questions while I weakly pump my fists and drool on national TV.

    It brings my folks and I together each time the skins play..if it means more time with my parents while there still with me I'll continue to watch.

    Dont think im gonna watch MNF. I watched maybe half of the games last year and half the year before that. Eventually you want to spend the little bit of time you actually have, doing stuff you enjoy.

    The fact that investment in public education is considered a bold/controversial proposal in this country is a fairly damning indictment of just how far down the far-right/late-stage capitalism rabbit hole we’ve gotten. See also: Healthcare

    Thank you Donald Penn, The Redskins have gone through two weeks in this 2019 season and have lost both games..but the offense has been able to score points..our quarterback Case Keenum is playing..good?...I think..and that's because of the job you are doing.. it makes me want to say Trent Williams who? But I have more respect for the Silverback than that. Thank you for your services Donald Penn!

    Just to lighten the mood siince it's depressing to be a Skins fan this week lol...some twitter responses to Kirk's Pizza Ranch commercials--between his trying to cook steaks on a cold grill, his horrid start to the season, and these commercials, I'm almost starting to feel sorry for the dude. Almost...I haven't forgotten that Kirk always seems to start slow each season so I expect him to get back on track this week and/or next: Ryan De Wit @DeWeezy11 Thanks to Kirk Cousins, Pizza Ranch will be adding turnovers to the buffet. Jamie @Graning21 Kirk Cousins would star in a Pizza Ranch commercial. Dude is the Pizza Ranch of quarterbacks. Joel Finkelman @JoelFinkelman Aaron Rodgers did Pizza Hut commercials... Kirk Cousins does Pizza Ranch... This seems shockingly accurate. TheGhostOfChrisStewart @TheStewieSprint These Kirk Cousins Pizza Ranch commercials make me really uncomfortable. Thomas Beadle @ThomasBeadle Aaron Rodgers: State Farm Eli Manning: Citizen watches Tom Brady: Aston Martin Drew Brees: Nike Kirk Cousins: ...Pizza Ranch. Grimm @grimmreality Kirk Cousins is starring in tv ads for Pizza Ranch and someone could probably come up with a more perfect symbiosis of glaring mediocrity but I'm not sure how.

    This has gone beyond my desire to watch this team and is affecting my desire to watch any kind of football, period.

    To me it's not about the losses. It's about the how... In my opinion, we are scheming very poorly defensively, not taking advantage of all that we can offensively, and committing entirely too many penalties. Losing is one thing. Losing with so much slop is another altogether.

    I am of the opinion that the coach doesn't particularly matter given the way the FO runs the team. Bruce hiring another coach is an exercise in futility. The only advantage to that is it brings optimism to the locker room in the form of a spark. I don't think Gruden is a bad HC. He does some things ridiculously well. His shortcomings could be made up for with assistant coaches given more autonomy. But he is a sitting duck where he is right now. Seems to have very little control and the "same ole Skins" status is strong with him. The Skins likely need a new HC despite my opinion of Gruden. But Bruce doing the hiring is a giant elephant in the room.

    When Gibbs came back the fans were "all-in" for a few years. I know I was... The excitement was palpable and this website (then privately owned under a different domain, random shoutout to the old school extremeskins LOL) was poppin with positivity. Since he left it's been deteriorating slowly year by year. Is Washington even a football town anymore? I moved away when I was young, just before the 1991 season, and got to talk a lot of smack in 7th grade, so I can't appraise local sentiment, but I'd bet it's more of a hockey and baseball town now. Skins used to OWN DC and Snyder is losing the town.
