    I don't disagree with your assertion...I was just wondering if we could find numbers to back it up. Looks like the post above goes a long way toward proving that.

    I agree...so how do we judge popularity then? We need something more tangible than "buzz" Most here are pretty smart...it's obvious that the Skins are losing the interest of the area while other teams are gaining interest...but how do we determine when they've actually fallen behind one of the other teams?

    Are we just gonna ignore how terrible tre Quinn is

    I'd also add that a rookie is looking VERY good despite that same trio of QBs throwing him the ball. So, I don't think we can put much of the blame on the QBing.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I don't know a thing about his development, but also think we have to take everything with a grain of salt. One coach was in a win-or-get-fired hotseat right from opening day. The other guy for sure wanted to start his tenure off with a win. Even if the guys who played ahead of Haskins were clearly flawed, they might have been trusted a little more not to make that one back-breaking mistake. I'll join you in being concerned if we are 1-7 or so and he's not starting. At that point, it would be extremely alarming!

    That is very interesting. I'm an O's fan and I could probably count on one hand the number of games I tuned in to watch. I was completely checked out this year...I actually probably turned on the Nats game more often (no, I'm not converting...there was just no reason to watch the O's).

    I'm not impressed at all, but I also don't really care. Outside of the tongue-in-cheek, Chuck Norris following we gave him last year, did we really expect much out of him? On a team that is a 2-point conversion away from being winless and has some surprising young depth at WR, I don't think Quinn is even close to the top of the list of issues to worry about.
  7. I actually like El Camino - then again, I wanted the fan service. I would watch 10 more of those even though it was a little slow. What makes that series so great to me is the fact that each and every scene is entertaining. The interactions with Todd/Landry were great! His little comments and how matter-of-fact some of the stuff was was quintessential Breaking Bad to me. That's what I've missed...the storytelling, not the story itself.

    No I know...I would assume it would be an even more dramatic ratio given the history and deep roots of the Sox vs. the Nats. I was just curious.

    That makes sense...but I think that makes more sense comparing an August baseball game to an October football game. I'm actually the opposite...I haven't watched an entire Skins game yet this year (rare for me) and haven't watched barely any non-Redskin game this year (very rare for me). Anyway, who knows...I'd be interested to see the NLCS ratings vs. the October Redskins ratings...

    I don't know what that means...but that's interesting. I mean, at some point, doesn't more people watching mean something is more popular??

    But even as Redskins attendance and TV ratings are declining, aren't they still far ahead of the other sports? I look at viewership more than attendance too, because I believe attendance is down overall. I think the awful Redskin regular season games still out-draw the Nationals playoff games in TV ratings...how else can we tangibly show that there is still more interest (even if the gap is shrinking)? OK. I'm not really sure what else to say...there could be a 0.0001% of the Redskins ever tasting success again. However, if we both agree that on that off chance they would be the most popular local team, then we are saying the same thing.

    Well, he might not do either of those things...but if you agree that a good Skins team is still #1 in the area, then we are saying the same thing.

    If tomorrow Snyder sold the team or got lucky and chanced into a generational GM and the Redskins became a 10-12 win team consistently...do you or do you not believe that they'd be the most popular sports team in DC? What I'm arguing has NOTHING to do with how confident I am in Snyder making this team a winner or if I believe he's not a buffoon. It has to do with how irreparable the damage is. I believe a winning Redskin team would very quickly take over the area again. That's all.

    OK...we are talking about different things. I'm not out here predicting a turnaround. I'm simply stating that a contending NFL team would instantly own the DC area again. But, I agree that the likelihood of that contending NFL team showing up is very low. I'm also stating that as time continues to march on, we are slowly nearing a time when a contending NFL team might only be #2 or #3. But we aren't there yet...which is why we are in the "chipping away" phase.

    I don't doubt any of what you're saying. But I think comparing an NLCS-caliber or Stanley Cup-caliber team to a 2-14 NFL team isn't apples to apples. I think a better indication of if the Redskins are truly dead in DC is how the area would react to a similarly successful Skins team. If in the same year the Redskins, Nats, Wizards, and Caps all won a title, which team would garner the most attention? I think THAT is what shows how much an area cares. Or, another way to look at it, if all 4 teams sucked at the Redskins' level this year, who would we be talking about the most? I don't think we'd be focusing on the Nats right now if they ended the season 72-90.
