    10-6 Finish, Tell Me It Can Happen, Please....

    What is the Vegas line on that kind of bet?. Skins winning the last nine in a row? I also wonder what the odds would be for losing the last nine in a row?

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I spent my Sunday afternoon watching an old Mel Brooks movie "History of the World". I got to the part where "Count DE Monet, count the money" aka Dan Snyder looks down to the poor piss boy and tells him to wait for the shake. At that moment in time I said to myself that is exactly what it feels like to be a Redskin fan.

    How you can not remember this? You ARE an original member and have been here long enough to know this and remember this situation. When Blade and Die Hard turned this over to Snyder there was a very happy period of approx. 3-6 months during the transition. After this "happy" period there was a period of time when any anti Snyder/ front office/ draft pick/FA. acquisition type of thread was immediately taken down. During this "unhappy" period in time there was an approx. 1-2 dozen regular posters/ members and maybe many more that just went MIA. They were all original members from 2001 to 2003. Some were season ticket holders and all were die hard skin fans. I was told that the thread Nazis stopped taking down threads and posts and things were back to normal. I was also told this "unhappy period " only lasted a few months. Since I went MIA shortly after this "unhappy" period started and can not confirm how long it lasted. I also do not know if those members were banned or just decided not to return. The real point here is that this matter is yet another example of Snyder through his proxies alienating the fan base.

    There was a period in time after Die Hard and Blade turned this over to Dan and bug eyes that any anti Snyder thread was immediately taken down. I do not know if those guys got banned or they just decided to leave and not come back.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    This team was cursed the day Dan Snyder became the owner. The team under Snyder over the past 21 years is 139-185-1. There is still 11 games left and I am sure we will add more losses to Dan Snyder 21 year record. The 21 years prior to Dan Snyder the team went 185-142-1. Dan Snyder must sell this team back to the JKC family or to the people of MD, VA like the Packers. This is the only way the curse will be broken. The Redskins will not win another Super Bowl as long as Dan Snyder is the owner, period, sadly end of story.

    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    Dan's record is 139 - 185 - 1 2013 skins went 3-13 - If this team wins 3 games this year I will be surprised.
  7. Tommy-the-Greek

    What question do you want answered at the press conference?

    When will Dan Snyder sell the team and end the curse? 139 wins - 185 Losses - 1 tie - Dan Snyder's record.

    NBCSports: Foster says **** this team and the fanbase

    This franchise is F'in CURSED. I am still trying to figure out exactly when it started. Was it when JKC passed? Was it when Gibbs left the first time? Was it when Snyder purchased the franchise? Was it when we hired Turner? IDK....but make no mistake about it the Washington Redskins are cursed. The last time we won a super bowl my daughter was in diapers. She is now working on her doctorate degree. The point here, it sure has been awhile. Think about the few seasons since 1991 that this team had a chance to be a serious contender. I am doing this from memory so do not give me any crap if I get a few things wrong here but, here goes.. We start a season under Turner at 7-1, lose Tre Johnson and everything falls apart. There were a few other things but I think losing big Tre was the straw. The season we lose ST. The season RG3 goes down. And now the body bag season. At least four times in 27 years we had a team that could be a serious playoff team. Other teams and fans around the league had to give some respect to our Redskins and then BAM, the curse hits. I will probably take another 5 year break from this place. To the original extremeskin members it was good to see and hear from you again. I miss Blade, DH. OM, Art and others. I wish I still felt the way I used to about this team and franchise, but sadly I do not. This team is F'in CURSED.
  9. The 85 Bears "D" allowed 12.4 per game and 198 for the season. This "D" would have to allow an average of 7 points a game over the last 9 games to have the same average. Actually it is 7.5, so if they were to allow 7 or less per game they would be statistically better. The 85 Bears got better as the season progressed. They allowed 15 per game over their first 7 games. We are now at 19 over 7 games. Now the Bears were coming off a loss in the NFC championship game in 84, but you could see that "D" under Buddy Ryan was going to be special. This group reminds me of that group. They have the potential to be really special. SO it may be better to call this "D" the 84 Bears with the potential to be better then the 85 Bears. We shall see. The comparison with that team is not so far fetched. The Bears had a top ten all time running back at the twilight of his career. So do we. They had a serviceable QB and so do we. They had a true #1 WR in Gault, we shall see what our WR's will be. They did have a fridge on short and goal to block as a fullback or run it himself, I would love to see one of our "D" front 7 take on that role. They could be a fullback for AP or just run over people on the goal line.
  10. To answer the original question, Our 87 4-3 D line would be the best I think we ever had. This 3-4 "D" front 7 has a chance to be better. They need to win a super bowl to prove it.
  11. This season reminds me of the 85 Bears, AP instead of WP, Alex instead of Jim, our "D" could very well be as dominate down the stretch. Well guys we need a damn fridge. Can Daron run short and goal?...lol

    Redskins vs Giants Prediction Thread: Meltdown in the Meadowlands Metlife Stadium?

    I am feeling soooo good about this season, I am going to get my 20 year old redskins tattoo touched up and I am thinking about getting a new one. How does this sound for a back piece, a redskin brave on a painted horse trampling a cowboy underfoot? lol

    Redskins vs Giants Prediction Thread: Meltdown in the Meadowlands Metlife Stadium?

    Am I the only one who thinks the Gods of Football are smiling upon this team? Over the last 3 weeks the Redskins have won 3 in a row and in years past we would have lost all 3 or at least 2 of 3 in the close tough gritty types of games. We are starting to get the bounces, calls and non-calls that we never used to get, or at least not in the last 27+ years. There just might be something very special about this team and this season. Everyone should sit back, smile and enjoy the ride. On a side note, my wife's swear jar isn't doing too good this year.....lol

    If our "D" blitzes Manning more then a dozen times, we win and we win big. +12 Blitzes - Skins 31 - Giants 10 less then 12 Blitzes - Skins 24 - Giants 23
  17. I can not be the only one who wants to watch the last few LSU vs. Alabama games??? We just got 2 first rounders......kudos to the front office. They earned their paychecks this week.
