  1. I actually like it.

     

    Like the New York Giants Football Team (can't believe I'm saying this), it expresses a more retro/throwback feel, especially the helmet numbers, which is appropriate given the organization's age and influence. Also speaks to a measure of defiance: if we can't have our old name, then no name will suffice.

  2. The 5 minutes he took to fix and clean Tom Brady's legbrace in the Pats game will pay him dividends in his visit to Foxboro this offseason.

  3. He doesn't want to be here. I don't blame him, really. Though we're in a new and more promising regime now, he's under no obligation to suffer through this cluster-**** organization's current reclamation project, taking paychecks from the same man largely responsible for the mess in the first place. Just let him go. It isn't healthy for a team to carry a malcontent, especially if the idea is to start anew.

    We are getting Rivera because of the players Bruce has put on the team in his three years in full control since Scot's run left us with precisely one good draft pick before he went nuts.   The article is actually right.   The core has enough promise that Bruce is to be thanked for finding players in one offseason to turn us from a really bad place to land to a preferred place.   This time a year ago we would NEVER have been close to getting a guy with the reputation of Rivera.   Haskins, Guice, McLaurin on rookie deals make this an attractive option because even if they suck, no one will blame the next coach, as that all goes to Allen.   :)

     

    Sure, by the same token a lot of proven talent has withered under his watch as well.

  5. Some of you seem to believe that a lack of awareness from an irreconcilable ego is the source of Snyder's failure as an owner. There are enough anecdotes and stories to suspect that he also suffers from some behavioral irregularities. Even if he were to strike gold and win the whole thing, I have serious doubts that the success or at least the template from which that success came about would be sustained with him in charge.

  6. There are too many negative factors linked to the Redskins to arouse any sort of taxpayer sympathy in the organization's cause to have a stadium publicly funded. Too many residents simply do not like Daniel Snyder; they don't like the team name; they don't care to appease the interests of a wealthy corporation when it represents an unneeded complication in the city's current dilemma, namely housing and gentrification as well as other negative externalities as demonstrated in the aftermath of the Nationals Park opening back in 2008. Although Dan is young relative to his contemporaries, he exudes the peculiarities of old money and brooding greed that are at odds with the reformed liberal values and mood as depicted by the city, a city whose present-day tax base is almost completely disassociated from that of yesteryear whose longstanding residency in the town preserved local cultures and permitted them to pass those values down one generation after the next before rising costs relocated them across the river, into PG County, or wherever else their fandom could no longer translate into a political voice in the District. Snyder's only hope for a DC stadium is for his Landover team to win and to win consistently until the town is awashed in euphoria from victory after victory to the point of numbing them to the notion of funding it at the cost of handwaving all other local concerns.

  7. "Strong personal relationship with Dan" = "Agree with his point of view, doesn't have to happen right away just know your opinion up to that point won't matter if by chance it's even heard. Be funny but never ever make Dan the butt of your jokes. Everyone else is free game, though."

    I don’t even want Dan to “get it”, I seriously would rather just win with another owner at the helm.  

     

    Exactly.

     

    Jerry Jones "got it" and those 3 trophies served to embolden his recklessness and folly for 20+ years. He'll always reference his 90s success to validate himself as an expert of football much to the detriment of the franchise and the chagrin of Dallas fans.

     

    If Dan lucked himself to winning a Lombardi, in his arrogance he'll attribute the victory solely to his football acumen and the Dan we know would suddenly transform overnight from a self-preoccupied egotist to a self-deluded a**h***

    The things I’m not interested in hearing are “Snyder,” “Bruce Allen,” or “Front Office.” I am just very curious about our failures from a the “X’s and O’s” perspective.

     

    Why are those kids so bad?

     

    Things I'm not interested in hearing are "Bad parents," "awful schools," and "poverty." I am just curious about their failures from an X and Y chromosomes perspective.

    Washington loses the Skins, there will be no expansion.  THE NFL isn't expanding.  Washington lose it's football then that's probably it.

    There will be relocation in the future but more than likely to London. 

     

    No, but another team might move here. Maybe Jacksonville. The DMV market is too lucrative to be absent of football.
