  1. I give credit when due and the team played with a lot of heart today. I’m glad they won. Haskins is showing some improvement.

    I like Larry Michael but one of the funniest comments regarding him I ever heard was “Mouth Of Sauron” Still cracks me up

    I would imagine their thinking is probably along the lines of...in order to have The Patriots and the Steelers you have to have The Bengals and The Redskins. Somebody has to be an example of what not to do. Might as well be our team.

    I suspect Mr. Svrluga has been reading this thread....that’s cool.

    I was there because I was given free tickets by my brother through his company. Let me tell you...I have never felt so low as a Redskins fan in my life. The videos I captured would not do it justice. The place was totally overrun.

    If the brokers who buy all the tickets can’t unload them this year, they may be reluctant to buy them all up next year. If the brokers don’t buy the tickets for 2020...who is going to buy the tickets? The fans? People are asking if Sunday they finally hit rock bottom. We have 6 more games this year, and what is this fan apathy going to do for 2020 and beyond? 10,000 Redskins fans or less in the stadium on opening day 2020 with a sea of the oppositions jerseys? Personally, I think rock bottom is yet to come.

    From my outsiders perspective, part of the problem with the Redskins organization appears to be there is an attitude that the fans are lucky to have the team. When in reality the team is lucky to have the fans. Almost like, why shouldn’t the fans shell out ridiculous amounts of money to pay for overpriced everything and be trolled every weekend by the other teams fans? Only a masochist would attend the games these days. Snyder has made his money on what came before him not what he has brought to the table during his time as owner. As owner and caretaker for the team (That eventually somebody else will own even if it takes decades) he has a responsibility to protect the legacy...he has not done that. This isn’t 1992 anymore, or even 2005 for that matter. The chickens have come home to roost.

    Welp...have we seen enough..?

    Way too early to say he’s a bust, but the fact of the matter is that Snyder took a long shot at 15th overall in the draft. You don’t take a project and a “maybe he pans out 2 or three years down the road” that high in the draft. We have little choice but to wait and see. If I was a betting man the odds are far greater he ends up a bust than he does a franchise QB. Only time will tell. My biggest fear is that they hire the wrong head coach for the team for the sake of trying to turn water into wine with Haskins.
  9. Let there be no more doubt. Dan Snyder drafted a PROJECT Quarterback 15th overall in the 2019 draft.

    You get the sense that Snyder and Angelos both just took it for granted the fans would always be there no matter what. Not the case any longer. Expecting people to shell out hard earned cash year after year for an inferior product has finally caught up to both. I take no pleasure in pouring it on. The Orioles and Redskins have both been my teams since I was a kid. I even felt a tad guilty for enjoying that Nationals World Series win a little too much, but now I’m just like **** it. At least we got to see a Championship come back to the area even if it wasn’t my Orioles.

    The Redskins OWNED this market when the Ravens came to town. In the 24 years since the Ravens arrived they have done just about everything right...while the Snyder era of the Redskins has been an abomination. People can only take so much. I know at least two friends at work that have told me they have finally had enough and are Ravens fans now. They cannot support this team any longer, because they have lost all hope that’s things are ever going to get better.
  12. I think at this point he HAS to know what he should do. Problem is he won’t do it. He will win his way or not at all. They fire outsiders who dare to admit the truth faster than they can hire them.

    Game Thread: Redskins @ Buffalo Bills

    Correctomundo I’ve been saying this since it happened, and I still say it now. Truly idiotic move from which we have never recovered.

    I never thought I would say this, but I’m with you. Truthfully, I’m angry beyond belief at this **** show and I’m fed up with supporting it in any way. They have taken something I lived and breathed and loved and turned it into something I literally loath now. Until now, I never actually rooted for the team to lose but every week now I want them to badly...the more humiliating the loss the better. I think I would literally be relieved if Snyder moved the team to Timbuktu...as long as we keep the history and the expansion team we get plays in a stadium at RFK. I AM FED UP

    This is the heart of what I’m talking about. Nobody is even all that upset that they are sucking. I just sense apathy and indifference everywhere. The fan base is spent.
