    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.

    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.

    For Immediate Release August 8, 2019 STATEMENT BY SONNY JURGENSEN ON RETIREMENT: "I've decided to hang up my headphones and my clipboard. It's been a great 55 years in Washington. I want to thank our Redskin fans for being so generous to me and our teams, we owe it all to you. I've had so many wonderful memories of thousands of teammates I've played with and talked about during my years in radio and television in Washington D.C. The relationships with coaches and executives over the 50 years like Bill McPeak, Otto Graham, Edward Bennett Williams, Vince Lombardi, Jack Kent Cooke, Joe Gibbs, Bobby Beathard, Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder have been special. My special broadcast partners such as Sam Huff and Frank Herzog and later with Larry Michael, Chris Cooley and Doc Walker on radio and the great TV talents such as Glenn Brenner and George Michael. We lived through the glory years together -- the NFC East championships and five Super Bowls, all great memories. And I would be remiss if I failed to mention my good friend Andy Ockershausen who was responsible for bringing together the original broadcast team of Sonny, Sam and Frank. After 62 years in professional football, I still have my health and wonderful family with a special thanks to my beautiful wife Margo for letting me work the weekends for all those years. I'll always be a fan of professional football and appreciative of all that it has done for me, my family and our city. I'll leave you with these word, Hail to the Redskins!"

    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.

    Someone tell this guy that if he wants to be taken seriously he needs to say more than just "mod edit" in every post.

    In 2017, Foster had surgery to repair a torn rotary cuff. The same year in the NFL he misses 5 games to Grad 3 Ankle Sprain In 2018 he missed 3 games to a Grade 2 Hamstring Strain before being released. Now he has a torn ACL. Here's the truth, we took another risk on a player that can't stay healthy and he got hurt. There is no luck to this, this is a pattern.

    2019 Edition... The Good: Case Keenum - The second half wasn't great, but the guy looked pretty solid all in all. He reminds me of a slightly riskier Alex Smith. I like him. The offensive line - While it's not the next coming of the Hogs, they really held up better than they had any business to. The receivers (counting tight ends)- At least in the first half. They looked really good. But once the wheels fell off they went into dear in headlights mode a little bit. McLaurin - Separate shoutout because he was fantastic. Inside Linebackers - MUCH better. They ranged, they tackled very well and even in coverage they got beat but were in the right spots. Wentz had some phenomenal throws. The Meh: Landon Collins - Had two big tackles but otherwise he was a non factor. The defensive line - when they were good they were real good. They snuffed out a few plays before they even started and punished the Eagle backs. It was really an awesome sight. The reason these guys are meh is because of the pass rush. 90, 52 & 91 were no where to be seen. The Bad: Jay Gruden - Awful game. Getting conservative and running twice in a row on a key drive was a drive killer. Making Peterson inactive is indefensible. Lack of meaningful adjustments coming out of halftime is an abomination. Greg Manusky - I realize the Eagles have three serious receiving threats... But you didn't really blitz, so to be honest, there is absolutely zero reason Desean Jackson shouldn't always have a safety over the top of him... or at least shaded over the top of him. The Secondary - Norman got beat once, but I don't think he's the problem in the secondary. A lack of a free safety is glaring. Nicholson had a few good plays, but he was playing more like a strong safety than a free safety in the sense that he was playing up rather than center field and seeing things around him. He has to be better. Injury to Allen - This had a bigger impact on the team than many think. Overall impressions: I think the Redskins are a better team than they have been. However, with the way this team was coached and some of the decisions that were made, I'm not sure that matters for their ability to contend. Unless things drastically change we are looking at yet another 5-8 win season mired in more mediocrity. NEW ADDITION THIS YEAR!!! Star of the Game - Terry McLaurin *** Second Star - The Inside Linebackers ** Third Star - Vernon Davis/Case Keenum * Dud of the Game - Jay Gruden Second Dud - Greg Manusky Third Dud - Bruce Allen (just because) Season Totals: Terry McLaurin - 3 stars The Inside Backers - 2 stars Vernon Davis - 1 star Case Keenum - 1 star Bruce Allen - Greg Manusky - Jay Gruden -

    4.5 years ago, the mods allowed me to make a few completely unrelated posts when my oldest had a great interview at VCU dental, and an elated update when she was accepted. Proud Daddy moments just make you want to bust if you can't share. I appreciate the indulgences very much. ....so with all that said, Today she became a Doctor. Carry on, just had to have my Daddy moment #proud daddy

    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.
