    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Really? He felt slighted at being drafted behind RGIII? Funny you should mention that, but it was actually the exact opposite. RGIII was deemed the savior and resented KC being drafted in the same year. RGIII had the ownership and management ear (Bruce and Dan) and did everything to contaminate this team against KC. It was obvious to the most casual ob server other than those blinded by the "Savior". You, my fiend, are one that was blinded. Dan and Bruce wanted RGIII to be the man so much that they did everything to make KC feel unwanted. So many reports on this are available. RGIII apoogists just can't get over the fact that Shanny drafted KC and he was the better choice.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Man, I know I am not as smart as most of you (especially The Hangman- C_Hanburger) but wow, the venom and hatred for Kirk is just unwarranted, (IMHO ONLY!). A wise man once said "opinions are like a55holes, everyone has one but everyone else's stinks". So very true. All I really can say is get over yourself. Kirk gave us some good years, not perfect, but when he played here I always thought we had a chance. I haven't had that feeling before him (1 yr with RGIII) nor since. Haskins is not the answer. I will agree with The Hangman- C_Hanburger on one thing, we should have traded him when we had the chance, but didn't. That is not on Kirk, it is on this feckless, stupid, and irresponsible franchise. No NFL franchise is "loyal" or "faithful" to any player. Once used up, they are discarded like last weeks trash. To be perfectly frank, I have not watched much of the Skins this year for the first time in 40+ years. I have watched and followed the Vikings, Rams, Packers, and 49ers. Watching all of the Redskins castoffs and "problems" succeed. I am of the opinion that fans have it wrong, we should not follow a franchise, we should follow the people and players. They are, after all, what makes the league so good. lord knows the Redskins have made the league look really bad for a lot of years now.

    No, he did not. As all of these guys will tell you, it is a business. To be honest, he probably told Jay this exact comment, you may never know as neither will ever tell you everything that happened behind the scenes of that cluster frack of a team.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    The Giants game was worse. It felt as though the ENTIRE Stadium was BLUE.

    So... you are saying Alex fits a dysfunctional, poorly built, horribly managed team. Not saying much. Alex showed nothing when he played other than he did not turn the ball over. He was 'under-whelming' at best. The team won games under his leadership despite his poor play.

    What would you do IF YOU bought the team???

    Marshal? While he was the original owner, he was also wildly and radically racists to a level that would make most people blush. No, not the Marshals. Re-brand to something like the Washington Warriors or just take the name Washington Sentinels (from the movie).
  7. I saw a stat on money paid to IR players, and the Skins are far and away No 1! The Dolphins scrapped their entire roster and are playing with (basically) scrubs, with a payroll $100MM less than the skins, and they are scoring TD's and are competitive. I love this team, have for decades, but I am in total revolt right now.

    Just admit it, you're going to miss them next week

    Unfortunately, this is the truth. For the past several decades, Sundays in the fall were reserved for watching the Redskins and heaven help anyone who interrupted that! Ex-Season ticket holder, and happy as hell I have my life back. Maybe one day I will watch again, but not this year. I refuse to support this train wreck this year. Not that anyone really cares.

    I would agree on this. Yes, he made some bone head plays, all QB's do, even the best. What was special is that he is durable, reliable, and consistent (for the most part). With a good run game, and a competent defense, quite a few of those losses to .500 teams would have been wins. KC is NOT a QB that can put the team on his shoulders and gut out a win week in and week out. Brees, Rogers, and Brady can, but not many others in this league. So many more games were lost because of the porous defense than because of KC's play. But, this is a game where fans will blame 1 guy for all the maladies of the entire team. I think what drives me crazy is the over the top vitriol that people have of him. He played the game well, both on and off the field, and won. Is he worth the money he is getting in Minnesota? Probably not, but they were willing to give it to him. He played that part of the game well!
  10. 1-15 is definitely possible! But, the really historic part of this team right now is that they have one the biggest payrolls in the NFL! Right now they have a $180MM payroll. To be that bad with that amount of money being spent is historically laughable!
  11. 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.
  13. 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.
