  1. As a Redskins fan, who has been a fan for well over 40 years, I WOULD NEVER, EVER, ROOT for this team to lose! But, as a rational and semi-intelligent (debatable) human, I look at this team: the state of the management, coaching, and general lack of discipline, and then look at the opposing team in the same way. One can only conclude that unless some miracle happens, the 49ers are going to win this game, and win big. This does not make me any less of a fan, only a realistic one.

    Not Watching This Weekend...

    I have no doubt that the Skins will win this weekend. After a coach is fired (mid-season) the players tend to get nervous and play better trying to prove it was not their fault. As for whether this game will be watched by the fan base? I would say that about 40% will tune in off and on, and about 20% will watch the entire game. Even Dolphin fans are tuning out. The TV ratings on this one will be in the tank.
  3. I respectfully disagree. He has shown flashes of ability and toughness. The NFL is so different from college in so many ways. It takes time to allow the game to "slow down" (whatever that means) or for him to speed up. Patience, grooming a good QB is like letting a fine wine mature, it takes time.
  4. Let's be honest, DH got smacked last night, HARD! If he is a good character guy, he will learn from this and be better for it. Sometimes people need a really good wake up game like this to put the NFL into proper focus. Let's see how he responds. The jury is still out on him, but we all need him to be successful, and soon! Otherwise, it is going to be a LONG season.
  5. TW should just show up and go on the PUP list. That would give him time to recover and still get paid. He can always stick with his own docs and have them communicate with the Skins trainers. I just cannot understand how a player can accept losing that much money, but I guess he might have enough in investments that it makes little difference to him. I wish I had that problem.
  6. I was there also repping my B&G! it was embarrassing to see that takeover and how total and effective that it was. I have been to several other stadiums and nothing even comes close to the amount of opposing fans that come to FedEx. It MUST be disheartening to the players and affects how they play. Several years ago the Dolphins came to FedEx and their coach stated after the game that it felt like a home game for them. You are right that Trent has been here long enough and has seen the good, bad and ugly of the Redskins. Again, I am not saying that this is the reason for being butt hurt, I am saying that it is probably (?!?) a contributing factor.
  7. As a fan, did you attend that last few games at FedEx last year? Not many fans did, but a whole lot of opposing fans did. I think there were more than 70% Giants fans in on the last game. As fans, we totally gave up on these guys who were battling it out each and every day through adversity and a bad situation. These players see the amount of fans in their "home" field and have to wonder: What the hell did I do? i am not saying this is the reason why TW is upset with the team, but all of these players have lived their whole lives being adored by their fans and given everything on a silver platter. When that stops, or if they begin to feel slighted, then...
  8. Unless, of course, he expected the Redskins to pay the bill. As was mentioned in a previous post here, the Skins will take care of any and all football related issues. Non-football related medical care is the players responsibility. TW seems like a nice enough guy, but maybe he thought that he is special and deserved the extra hand holding to get this addressed. Maybe, there is a lot of fault on both sides.

    And so it begins... again. My god this team is snake bit.

    Starting QB 2019???

    I can easily see Bruce doing this. Foles is way too expensive but it would be the Redskins way to over spend for the shiny new toy, and then break it. The ugly fact is that the Redskins have very little cap space. In order to get a new QB like Foles, they will need to get rid of a lot of other skill players (not that this is a bad idea, especially for the under achieving, high priced ones). What will then happen is we would get better at one position, but the rest of the team is weakened to a point of non-competitiveness. What this ream needs to do is roll with Colt and find a competent backup on the cheap! Due to the mis-management of Bruce and Dan, this is our Kobayashi Maru.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    I won't miss it! I will be in front of my 65" HD TV (which costs about as much as 2 tickets to 1 game at Club level Pricing).

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Not renewing. No where near worth the expense.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Run with McCoy and a serviceable backup. They have very little money due to Smith's contract and are pretty well screwed. Eat the entire hit in one year and get it over with. Trade all first/second rounders to later round/year picks, get as many guys as possible on 1 year minimum deals, save $$ and reboot in 2020. This team cannot afford to continue to kick the can down the road. Hard decisions need to be made for the future, and it needs to start this year.
  14. I choose to not be a fan at the moment. Cancelled season tickets, will not watch games. These last few seasons has made me not want to be affiliated at all. I have been a fan for well over 35 years, but now, I am pretty much done.
