    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.
  5. 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.

    Just a friendly reminder regarding our QBs

    But, we will WIN IT! Not much, just the cost of your soul.

    A question for you guys?

    The Packers are a class act. Good team and great fans. Never had an issue with them at all.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    If you park in the Red Zone, exiting the stadium is SOOOOO much easier and faster. I usually get out and am on I495 in about 20 minutes.
  9. I do, and I follow him every game and just cry knowing that we had him and let him go. I talk to a lot of fans at the games, and almost every one states that this team is just stupid in letting him get away. I would bet that one reason the stadium is so empty is that the fans have given up on believing the BS from this organization and have lost all faith in it.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    The stadium appeared to be only a little more than half full. So many blue jerseys and the chants for Cam were deafening at times. There is NO home field advantage for the Skins. With Dallas coming this week, I am expecting a HUGE turnout for the Boys. Us Skins fans need to show up and take back our turf!
  11. Not at all. But, he is NOT what was advertised, not even close. As for being a serviceable QB, well, again, not really close, yet. I hope he learns and gets better, but don't hold your breath. This FO has been fooled again by Ried. We have the 49ers version of QB, not what was on the field last year. Stop making excuses for this guy. Never said you were an apologizer, if you took it that way, sorry. As for a game manager, maybe, but again, I don't see it.
  12. Why should we give him the benefit of the doubt here? He was brought in to make this team a winner. We were sold a bill of goods that they knew was false.
  13. KC QBR: 70.2, AS QBR: 49.9. Not really that close Really? Your next statement contradicts this to a high degree. He has not been what he was sold to be by a huge margin. If this trend continues, we are looking at a 6-10 season at best. Alex might be a good leader, but he sure as hell cannot lead when on the field. Actions are more important than words, and his ability to be "That Guy" is proving false.

    I'm tired of Charley Casserly's criticism

    Casserly is always wrong. He is a past his prime hack who constantly tries to re-invent himself and has no credibility anymore. just ignore him and move on.

    Some Hard Truths

    Let me see if I understand this: We had a team with an O-Line signed off the streets (1 starter), a defense that couldn't stop an old lady in a walker, no running back, CT out, Reed out, all the descent WR's either traded away or hobbled, a QB that tried like hell to carry his team, who also had one of the best passer ratings, QBR, was #1 against the blitz... and he sucks because he threw to a receiver on a timing play that got intercepted. Yea, right. KC was not perfect, far from it, but why is it always the QB who gets the blame? This is a team sport. 11 on O, 11 on D. Every facet must work and be proficient for the team to win.
  19. Stats? Stats! We don't care about no friggin stats! We could have a QB who passes for league leading yards, QBR highest in NFL, with all the stats in the world to support him, and he would be a FAILURE if the team loses! Oh wait... we did. This is Extreme Skins! Stats are for fan boys.
  20. I will admit, I am conflicted about this team, and the management of it. Having been a fan for these past 30 odd years, and a season ticket holder (club level no less), I was just hoping for more, a lot more. After all the preseason "We are so much better now" hoopla, I just knew in my heart that we were in trouble. This team constantly finds new and creative ways to ruin a good buzz. With that being said, I have always, and will always support this team. I may yell, cuss, fume, and overtly drink myself into a stupor after a **** show like last weekend (mainly because I think my money is wasted), but I will wear my team gear, go the games, and yell my heart out supporting my team. When everyone else is booing, I just stand with my head down, and quietly sulk until I get to the car. Yes, my Monday mood really depends on how this team plays on Sundays.Heaven help the people I work with, I feel bad for them.

    Booing - at the Stadium

    Oh it happened. At end of the first half, it was loud and long.
  22. I just hope they keep the in game music to a minimum. The pre-season music they played at 1000% volume all game gave me a migraine.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Was it just me or was the constant music playing between each play really annoying? I have been a STH for the past 6 years, and i do not recall the music in the stadium being this loud and constant. It was giving me a headache and made it difficult to talk to people close to us. Maybe I am just getting old, but when I go to a game, I do not need them to add extra "entertainment" on this level. I want to just watch football, drink a beer, and give the Philly/Dallas fans hell!
  24. I checked and did not see this article, I thought it was amusing Nuggets from the article: https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/mar/25/john-lynch-comments-evidence-redskins-bungling/
