    Game Day Thread - Skins at Fins Someone’s Gotta Win

    This board has major short term memory issues. Just the other day this board recognized that the FO is the problem. Now a #1 pick will fix this?

    The problem is much bigger than that.

    Meanwhile sitting here watching the Rams run seven straight rushing plays in their first drive scoring the TD against the Niners.

    ROFL!! Dan and Bruce Almighty will be convinced that the coaching change was an instant fix when in reality they barely beat a historically bad team, probably the third ever 0-16.

    If I remember correctly it was people that started new threads over and over criticizing Snyder instead of just posting into an already existing thread.

    What does Doug Williams do exactly?

    He's simply a part of Dan the fanboy's "Redskins humans" memorabilia collection. He's got George Allen's son as his Starbuck's runner. Doug Williams just hangs out. Joe Theismann does preseason games.

    SVP is spot on. I gave up and divorced this team after 2017 but still find myself watching this thread. It's a shame that the obvious problem from the get-go is the one and only guy who can do something about the problem. Can't believe after nearly 40 years as a fan I no longer like this team and in fact root for their failure...and this actually bothers me. Too much history between me and the Redskins. At least a dozen jersey purchases. Owning every style of Riddell helmet they owned from past years. Driving hundreds of miles on multiple occasions to watch them (I live in Illinois). Driving to DC overnight stopping only for gas, and rolling into headquarters at 8:30 AM in 2004 to be at training camp. Almost 40 years of my life devoted to this team, spending money every year for 19 seasons on the Sunday Ticket on DirecTV so I could watch them play each week. There's only so much failure I could take from this franchise and it's just time to move on. I just started pulling for the team I had the most players on my keeper fantasy team.

    0-6 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Think on this: Gardner Minshew II, the 6th Rd pick by the Jags this year is posting a 300+ yard game and will have 1200+ yards, 9TDs and just 2 INTs after five games. And the Skins have....who they have.

    Might be a good one. Group hugs for both fan bases. That WILL be an empty stadium. Temps will be uncomfortable to sit in a hot stadium watching a green rookie QB Vs a second year QB whose original team already gave up on him. Also lot more to do in Miami like on a boat or a beach.

    I don't look at it as people quitting in week two of 2019. They're quitting in years, 18, 19, or 20 of hopelessness.

    Agreed. That team, once they got going, had all the elements to have a good run for a couple of years if it weren't for the QB petering out and having to revert to a rookie who didn't last long. If the Skins had a vet QB who wasn't being held together by paper clips and duct tape, and had they not hired Al Saunders and undo all the progress they had made, there's no telling what that team could've done the following 2-3 years. Like maybe Trent Green. Oh, forgot the Skins screwed that up.

    OK, I did it anyway. NOBODY else in the NFL has a longer 11 win drought than the skins. The Browns come close at 1994, but the Skins last 11+ win season was 1991.

    Eventually you have to give up. Imagine being with a woman who's a crackhead and a cheater for 20 years. You''ve stuck it out, you've supported them, been with them through thick and thin for 20 years thinking someday they'd change because they'd have moments where it looks like they're turning the corner but they revert back to their old ways. Eventually you have to realize that you wasted a couple of decades of your life and need to move on. Let's be real. As long as Dan owns this team there will most likely never be a Lombardi there. There might be a small chance simply because the team might catch lightning in a bottle and have all the right elements going for them in one season but I highly doubt it. I doubt Snyder ever sells the team so if you plan on staying loyal you're likely looking at another 30+ years of this mess. This team's high water mark for wins since 1992 was 10 and that's only happened three times (1999, 2005, 2012). I'm not sure any other franchise has waited that long to reach at least 11-5. Don't feel like digging but I bet everyone else besides the Skins have. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, but the grass is DC is dead and the soil is compacted and covered in weeds. That is going to be a home game for the Pats. It will be interesting to see how much of the stadium they take over.

    That's me. I left the skins after 2017 but keep coming back to watch the carnage.

    About that. LOL My first NFL love in the 70s was the Rams. I got a Pat Haden jersey for my 6th birthday, but sort of latched onto the Skins when I was about 9-10.
