  1. Okay, he's on PS/IR and doesn't count towards the 10-player limit? I saw we signed Josh Ferguson, so that's 10 with Chesson on an IR/PS list?
  2. I thought so, but guy is arguing with me that Chesson is on PS exemption list of some sort, not IR. Thx

    Redskins Fan Revolt Thread

    I like this. Plus, if someone wanted to write an article it could be placed there. No opinions, just the things that have happened and how the moves turned out. One of the times where the truth is just about worse than something being made up. Just making sure to avoid anything (copyright/liable/etc) that could give opportunity for misdirection/distraction by Dan/Bruce.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    Their stubbornness also cost us J.P. Holtz. Not a HUGE deal, but would def be nice to have him now.

    Reality check time.

    Absolutely agree. I'd trade Williams, Norman, Kerrigan and Scherff for the best possible deals we can get right now. Reed (IR) will have to retire/be cut in the offseason. I'd listen to offers for any other player, but I'd aggressively try to trade those 4.

    Next Coach?

    It's sad how reasonable to sounds, when thinking about the stupid that Snyder/Allen are capable of.

    Next Coach?

    May not have to. Tomlin could be fired.

    Next Coach?

    TB/OAK Jon Gruden trade In the early-morning hours of Feb. 18, 2002, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent two first-round draft picks, two second-round picks and $8 million to the Oakland Raiders -- for a head coach...

    Reality check time.

    It's all fun. Gotta find laughs anywhere we can these days. Honestly, many fans are doing the right thing. Tuning out, not showing up or selling tickets like Bruce explained was the case in his presser. lol Winning is always nice, but Dan has cultivated a FO that will call mediocre "being close" and is fooled by it. We have a loser mentality and it shows. I hope for a win, expect a loss and am fine either way, after 20 years of Snyder. Enough losses and we get another roll of the dice and maybe, just maybe, it's the group that forces Dan to grow up.

    Reality check time.

    If I lost, then clearly you won. So, I'm super happy for you. lol Snyder is not going away. We all know and understand that. He has too much ego and is too emotionally tied to this team to walk away. Especially now, because selling would be admitting defeat and he's nowhere near being mature enough to do that. From leaving ice cream on Mike Nolan's desk to firing Jay Gruden at 0500, he has proven who he is as a man. So, the only real hope is to stumble across the right combination of coaches, talent evaluators, players and yes-men. That process can't begin until Allen is gone and the next group comes in. Once we (eventually) get THAT group in place, who are able to win DESPITE Dan's presence, he'll be afraid to meddle too much, for fear of being a loser again.

    Reality check time.

    Currently? 2-3, 2nd in their division and still a team with hopes. What are your (hopefully realistic) hopes for the Redskins? MAYBE win 5 games and what next? More of the same for a few more years? No, thank you. And yes, when Allen is fired we obviously would have a new Pres/GM. We'll already have a new HC, probably a lot of new staff. So, I'm not sure of your point there. With these coming changes, we would have hope again as a fanbase. A real reason to watch, instead of seeing a new a exciting way of losing. I'll take that. PS- Congrats on your huge win. It should be fun to weigh your endorsement offers and seeing your name in the Ring of Fame.

    Reality check time.

    Since the passion is gone for a lot of fans, and the fanbase itself is logically getting smaller, tanking is actually ideal. Honestly, I'd be fine with a 2016-17, Cleveland-style 1-31 trainwreck. We lose out for a season or two, get the #1/#2 pick overall a couple of times, and then... Losing out: 1) Bruce Allen will HAVE to have been fired by this point. There's NO WAY Snyder could make enough excuses to keep Allen around, since his departure is the only real hope there is for the team. So, we've already won by losing in this scenario. 2) By the end of the 1-2 seasons of (more) awful Redskins football, we will have shed many of the bad players/contracts that we have currently. Hopefully the new Pres/GM/HC will have worked out an actual plan for the franchise and plenty of cap space to make it work and Dan is able to STFU and let them work. 3) The haul of picks (with or without trades down, I'd prefer down as many times as reasonable) allows the new staff to build the team the way they see fit, while our current young players are growing into established leaders for the team. By this point (2022-ish) we should be in position for an extended period of good+ football, with real hopes of #championships. Fighting hard for that participation trophy: 1) Regular 6-10 to 9-7 finishes, more mid-round picks and Bruce Allen mistakes, only occasional playoff runs, further erosion of the fanbase until FedEx is officially deemed a neutral-game site and the team store is changed to a league store. (okay, the last couple might not happen, but they might as well) 2) Fans getting to take the "moral high ground", while seeing only the short-term, BUT getting to condescend to other people about their "superior fanship". So, whatever. Football is just entertainment and Washington Redskins football is no longer entertaining/fun. If being able to admit that and seeing the fastest way to correct it means I'm less of a fan than the next guy, so be it. Hopefully the next guy sleeps better at night, and also gets a fuller head of hair and a hotter spouse from their moral superiority. #HTTR

    Game Day Thread - Pats at Redskins

    6-7 more fluke TDs and we might have a chance. "De-fence" chants are loud as hell for NE fans... Embarrassing.
  18. I'd like to see a promotion for home games, especially against obvious-loss opponents: "46 lucky fans will be randomly selected on gameday to sign 1-day contracts and suit up for the Redskins". Screw it. If we're gonna suck, at least make it interesting.

    I'm unhappy with the team's performance / current direction, AND I don't drink very much, but I really want one of those. lol

    Gruden announces Colt McCoy starting vs NE

    Would be fun if there was a counter: Colt McCoy announces "No, thank you" to starting vs NE

    Louis Riddick as GM?

    If it isn't coming in as GM AND president, it won't matter anyway. No one will have sustained success here with Dan and Bruce in charge.

    Is it time to go Nuclear on Snyder???

    Okay, so I've got the next couple of days off starting tomorrow, and I really need a distraction from life. I have no money to put into it, only time and effort, but I really want to push this and see what we can do with it. I'm sick of the only real escapism I have left being such a disappointment and frustration. So, where do we go from here? How can I help? Some thoughts: Online petitions (change.org, etc) aimed at NFL owners/leadership and to include presidents/CEOs of major advertisers for the NFL, sports news outlets/figures, etc. A hashtag that's unique to this attempt and can be separated from the ongoing popular tags (#FireBruceAllen) that pissed off fans use. This can be focused thru all social media. ...and so on. Honestly, if somebody wants to copyright whatever ideas really take off, this stuff could probably fund itself to include something to really insult Dan (think "Trump Baby Balloon"). Stuff like this is how we defeat Snyder and get to (eventually) take pride in the team again.
