  1. Any new info on the RFK Stadium razing? Last I heard it was supposed to be sometime this year but there didn't seem to be a definite date. I never got to go there but I still wanna attend - kinda like going to a distant relative's funeral.
  2. Oh Lord - they said he coulda broken that one off for a big run but he didn't follow his blocker. Damn it.
  3. Good field position, just under 1:30 left in the game, and the team's got all three time outs. Let's see what they got...
  4. Well, that didn't last long. "Smith didn't stand a chance," Bram said. Yikes.
  5. Forgot about Radio.com. Doing that now. DeAngelo still sounds like he's a little quick to the punch - he's stammering a bit, I think his brain is moving faster than his mouth (relatable) - but they're not stepping on each other's toes.
  6. Was gonna make make a thread about this but figured I'd bump. There's no radio affiliate here in Harrisburg so I haven't had a chance to hear the new booth.
  7. The old man was gonna fire Gibbs and rehire George Allen. Mercifully, John stepped in to stop that from happening but oh my God, can you imagine George Allen 2.0 in the early 1980s?
  8. I'm inclined to agree that the foundation began to come apart when Beathard left town, just as the foundation of the "glory years" was set when he was hired in 1978. I wasn't alive during those years so it's hard for me to grasp how important he was to this team's success in the 1980s.
  9. I appreciate the feedback on this thread. I was still a toddler when Gibbs announced his retirement and by the time I actually started watching football, we were well into the team's current "dark age." As I said in the OP, for a team to be this consistently mediocre for this long shouldn't be possible in the current NFL. This franchise hasn't had a win total over 10 since the Super Bowl season nearly 30 years ago. Every other franchise - including the Lions, Bengals, and Browns (pre-1995) - have managed to have at least one season over that mark. That shouldn't be possible and ye
  10. And the kind of energy Joe Gibbs invested into coaching wasn't sustainable; it's incredible he lasted as long as he did over two different tenures and didn't end up checking into St. Elizabeth's or a divorcee. I know his second term wasn't nearly as successful as his first but considering who he was working with, it's a wonder he led this team to two playoff appearances and a playoff win in four years. The only other coach to do that in the Snyder era was...Norv Turner. And the only person to win a playoff game in Washington before Norv Turner was...Joe Gibbs. Come to think of it,
  11. I did not know that but it does make sense. I have to imagine that lead to some deeper, systemic issues that lead to the franchise's state today - something that's proportional to the payroll they had when the cap was implemented. And yeah - those post-Bethard drafts were not always the best. There were a few hits like Chip Lohmiller, Mark Schlereth, Brian Mitchell but when the franchise lost Bethard, it was noticeable. I believe 2007 was Joe Gibbs' best coaching job - even better than guiding the team through the '87 strike season.
