    Tesla Model 3 Release

    Holy moly this is a sexy vehicle http://jalopnik.com/tesla-model-3-this-is-it-1768284734 https://www.teslamotors.com/model3 After getting a 2nd gen volt this year I can't go back to a gas powered car. The model 3 is starting at 35k and already 115,000 people put down $1,000 deposits.
  2. Yup, this is Ron's org, iike it was Joe Gibbs' org, like it was Marty's org. Hopefully Ron finds his version of John Schneider (as Marty had) vs Vinny (as Gibbs had) or Bruce
  3. Excellent hire. Looking forward to a competent defense with this staff
  4. As I have progressed in my career and moved up the ladder the one observation I have of executive C-level leadership is you must treat all of them like 5 year olds. Making an idea that is yours, sound like it was theirs the entire time, will 100% get projects moving and advance your career. This is a phenomena I have observed across multiple companies, big and small.

    Help! Defaulted Student Loans (and other debt fun)

    Congrats! This was the year I finally retired my student loan payments from undergrad and grad school. It never was a huge burden (all in it was $36k for both) but it felt so good to get rid of it

    What will constitute success for you over next 5 seasons?

    Getting another Superbowl title. You can turn around a program fast in today's NFL with the way rosters turnover and the draft. I am expecting this team to get back to .500 next year (if Haskins is as good as he can be) and starting to compete for a Superbowl the year after
  7. Not enough has been written about Snyder communications or how the hell Dan Snyder even got in the game to buy the Redskins.
  8. To be fair, I do think we did that before hiring Jay. There were a slew of coaches interviewed for that role

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

    Let this season have been the final rock bottoming out of this franchise and the next 20 years end up being much better
  10. NSFW above! But "f them" Lets go boys

    Next Coach?

    Riverboat Ron appears to be one of those retreads who may learn from the mistakes of his previous stops, vs being a guy who just does the same thing as he always has. I think he would be a good hire

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    FedEx had 90k plus during the Gibbs 2.0 era The playoff game vs the Seahawks in Jan '13 was 84,325 The last playoff game vs the Packers had 81k The erosion of the fan base has been sudden and dramatic, and it tells me most people reached a breaking point in the last 3 seasons and are quite frankly finished. Combine that with 2 other teams in town winning titles in the last 18 months, and why bother?
  13. Its a wonderful story but makes me so mad at how far this franchise has fallen. There is no way for a kid *not* to get teased for being a fan of this god awful franchise. Why would any 9 year old have any pride in this team, or anything to come back with against his classmates? When I was in that age range, we were winning the Superbowl and had a first class 5 start franchise. Now? Why am I going to torture my kids and make them fans of this team

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    This article resonates with me so much. I am 37 and Redskins games were a family event in our house in the 80s, 90s, and hell even up through '12 It was a bond in our family. Now I feel like I would be a terrible parent if I passed this on to my twin girls (they have championship onesies from the Caps and Nationals though). What sucks is how good it was. Even in 2005, this town went nuts when Sean Taylor returned that fumble for a TD against the Bucs. I am not sure that a random 10-6 playoff year brings people back now. It is going to have to be something completely 180 from the last 20 years

    Post-Curse D.C. Sports Thread

    All of us deserve this. Considering the garbage we put up with until that night in Vegas, the sports universe owes us so much. 2 parades in 16 months. Amazing.
  16. Incredible! Here is to all of you who have been part of this journey since 2005
  17. The last 3 nights just sucked. No doubt. The city was lit. The crowd was there ready to explode each night. So many chances. just won game 6
  18. Just win game 6. Got the big horse on the mound who was drafted number 1 overall for a night like Tuesday.
  19. Game 3 was critical. Had so many chances that night. Allowed the Astros to break the ice
  20. Stras dominates & wins game 6. Max miraculously is able to pitch game 7 Because why not. 19-31. Down 3-1 in the 8th of 2 elimination games. Let’s see what they got
  21. If the bats were awake in game 3 we take that last night was the first night that pitching really failed. Need to start hitting again

    Game Night Thread- Skins at Vikes

    It is very clear that while Haskins has the physical arm talent, picking him at 15 was a horrific mistake by the owner.
  23. I want this team to win so much that we turn into the hated arrogant bunch.

    We lead the league in vendetta games

    even in that Lions game it was somehow the “Jon Jansen” revenge game He was cut that offseason in some bizarre way where they flew him back to Redskins park and told him face to face. Lavar Arrington & the Giants in 2006 Stephen freakin Davis with the Panthers in 2003 after Spurrier cut him And I think LKB is wrong. This all started with Brian Mitchell and the Eagles in 2000 after he was a post June 1st cut

    YOUNG SHANNY IS COMING, AND IT AIN'T GONNA BE PRETTY

    What a joke. This was Kyle's Superbowl today Look in the mirror man. You guys trotted out John Beck as QB in 2011 and had Jim Haslett as DC
