  1. I missed it and wish we would have been playing. Wonder if there will be 2 byes in the near future. Might be good for the team but sucks for a fan.
  2. Hope he has a breakout game and AP doesn't see the field again. AP deserves to be on a contending team so hope he is dealt at some point but if Guice has a good game, then roll with him completely. He is the future.
  3. Who? Sorry don't follow players that aren't on the Redskins.
  4. Ha, yeah...or maybe it is just another way for a player to force their way onto another team for whatever reason. Boo hoo, they didn't give me what I want so my back is hurting or my head is hurting or... So no, I don't believe anything a player says today. We're right in the middle of people "faking" whatever to force a trade to another team (for whatever reason) or force a newer and more highly paid contract. Heh...but feel free to believe whatever the players are complaining about these days.
  5. This is what I posted in another thread... His problem may be legit but I have a hard time believing it especially if previous reports are correct. From what we've heard, he has an issue with the medical team and Bruce knows about it. Bruce apparently offered to fire the whole crew (according to the media) but Trent didn't want to name names because he didn't want to cost them their jobs? So, if correct, he's basically saying, I'm done with this medical staff because I'm too concerned with my health but I'm fine with them treating my teammates? That is, I don't want to cause an inferior medical staff their jobs but feel free to let them screw up the careers of my teammates? Either he has a total disregard for his teammates well being or this isn't the main issue (imo) or maybe he is just getting bad advice. The whole thing makes me laugh. Is this the next Dumb and Dumber film?

  7. They seem very talented but aren't creating havoc like I expected. Not sure if it is the players or the scheme. In any case, seems like we should be better than we are. I think we'd be a little better if the refs were even remotely fair but that is another subject I guess. Did anyone else see the post on twitter where the opposing team had hands to face and blatantly holding but it wasn't called (during last game). I can understand our teams frustration. It seems very one sided. If the season is lost, I'd prefer them to cause a penalty on every single play to make the game take forever to get over with just to make a point with the league. Their officials suck and need to be held accountable. Drive home the point if you can. It is beyond ridiculous at this point, imo.
  8. Keep the players, sell the talking heads.
  9. Redskins 28 Vikings 27 Think it is good that it is an away game and think that will work in our ("our" being the Redskins) favor.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. 49ers

    I thought it was kind of fun to watch with all the slipping and sliding. IMO, it was the perfect day for an upset but unfortunately, the 'skins weren't able to pull it off. I think if they were a little more aggressive on offense it could have made a difference but watching the post game show, they all seemed to be very happy that we ran so much and stuck with it even though we didn't score any points. Maybe going for the moral victory? Even with the conservative game play, we still had our chances and the defense played well at times. I guess it is all a step in the right direction
  11. I was visiting family in NC but thankfully the game was shown there. Messy game but fun watching them slide all over the place. I really don't understand such a conservative game plan on offense though when we are (were) a 1-5 team. That last drive (not the one with just a few seconds) I couldn't believe they ran it on 3rd down and then punted. I pretty much knew that was the game since our defense isn't dependable enough to rely on. Thought the defense played fairly well for the most part until the 49ers started throwing more in the 2nd half and had some success. Kind of thought we might try that as well but maybe our pass blocking wasn't good enough to try it.
  12. Perine got cut by the Bengals. Maybe we should try to sign him since he knows our system and we were recently trying out running backs. I'm not a fan but did think he looked better in preseason this year. Maybe with a more run oriented game plan, he might do better?
  13. HTTR! Very happy for the win! Closer than I expected but a win none-the-less. Hope the whiners rooting for us to lose drown in their sorrows. Today is a happy day!
  14. Wow, nail-biter but glad we won the game!

    Reality check time.

    Sorry, just not wired that way. I always pull for my teams to win and never want to see them lose. In March Madness, I always pick UNC to win it (I'm a fan) and I always pick the ACC teams to win. Not always logical but can't bring myself to pick against any team I'm pulling for. So, I'm always pulling for the 'skins to win and always expect them to win. Just can't bring myself to pull for other teams. Pro: None Con: get better draft prospect but lose your soul in the process.
