    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    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.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    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.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    "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."

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    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***

    If I were a star college player with a bright future ahead of me, I'd pull an Eli/Elway if this organization so much as glances at my direction next Spring.

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    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.

    In what way is Kyle Smith GM material

    It's impossible to evaluate any position of this organization with any semblance of precision while they're encumbered by Allen and Snyder's suffocating influence.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Bill probably isn't going to be here after this season. The hell does he care about the future or evaluating rookies.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    The NFL should prohibit Josh from coming to this trainwreck for his own good. After one week here he'll be at Assets sniffing lines off silicon mounds.
  10. The league is steadily losing another football city with these two clowns running the show. At this rate we'll be another St. Louis, a sports town apathetic towards the NFL brand.

    Report: Josh Norman being shopped by Redskins

    He probably thought taking the two minutes to fix Brady's leg brace last month would pay dividends.
  12. Hahahaha... I wonder how Snyder feels now that he'll be forced to juxtapose his dismal team to the local audience this Sunday against yet another vastly-superior local product? It'll be like having to answer to an Aston Martin at an annual auto show with a '75 Chevy Vega.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

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

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Vikings

    Haskins looked so deflated on the sidelines.
  15. Remember Snyder's Newsweek quote from 2002? "What model is Art Modell? He owned the team 42 years and won one Super Bowl." Had he known at the time that in his 20th year as the Skins owner he'd win zero Lombardi trophies would he still have uttered that?

    Reality check time.

    Even if we get the #1 pick, does anyone honestly believe Snyder would resist from making the selection, with all the excitement and media attention that comes with having the 1st overall? If we were talking the 25th pick he probably wouldn't give a **** but a top 5? He's making that call.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I also think Bruce will retire after this year.
  18. The fact that he's probably wishing failure on another local sports team should get his Washingtonian license revoked.

    Reality check time.

    Andrew Luck? By the time he finally got the front protection he desperately needed from the front office, his body/spirit was broken.

    Next Coach?

    The contract you're talking about protects the head coach from Snyder but what protection will this GM person have? How do you put "stop meddling" into a contract and more importantly how do you enforce it?

    Next Coach?

    Sounds a lot like Shanahan's conditions. Didn't stop Snyder from bringing in McNabb and RG3.

    Reality check time.

    I could never support tanking a season. Despite our record and losing culture, there are still a lot of players on this team who want to compete and win. That sort of spirit is invaluable. By tanking, you're essentially telling them and their teammates to go out there, to risk getting injured for essentially nothing but a paycheck -- which in and of itself forces a strictly mammonistic atmosphere in the locker room that is poison to the success of any team.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Don't forget Spurrier who seemed convinced Snyder was going to get him a GM only to be double-crossed.

    So he's essentially an old Al Davis stuck in a young Al Davis's body.

    I Fear Bruce Is Here Until Stadium Deal Is Done..

    Dan wouldn't move the team. He'd be a lunatic to abandon the DMV market space.
