    Why are we this bad on the field?

    Hey, c'mon - Norv had a winning percentage that could almost be rounded up to .460. (And yes, he is the best head coach the franchise's had by winning percentage since Gibbs originally retired apart from Marty lone season and...Gibbs II).

    Redskins vs Jets Prediction Thread: The Bowel Bowl pt. 1

    Not gonna lie - this might be the first 'Skins game I watch in more than a year because it is probably going to be hilarious watching these two teams play. If the Sabols were still alive, their football follies for 2019 would just be a "highlight" reel of this game. **** it, 16-6, Washington only because the Jets are just so unforgivably ****ty.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Can you imagine how much FedEx is gonna rock if Lamar Jackson pulls some Madden **** off like he did this week against Cincinnati? Paul Brown Stadium was well under capacity and still sounded like a Ravens home game. Imagine that but at a packed house.

    SI: Bezos & Amazon Want In ...On the Redskins?

    This is very relevant to my aforementioned, deep seated loathing for Jeff Bezos.

    SI: Bezos & Amazon Want In ...On the Redskins?

    My deep seated loathing of Jeff Bezos aside - yeah, sure, fine. I'll take him any day over Dan Snyder. The man basically owns everything anyway - there's no escaping putting money in his wallet so might as well.

    The Official Maryland Terrapins Thread

    Regarding the beatdown Ohio State put on the Terps: I would sarcastically ask if Maryland's happy they went to the Big 10 but considering the fat stacks they're getting from the conference's TV revenue, the answer is surely a sincere and emphatic "yes." Who knew getting your ass whooped could be so lucrative?

    Though it most certainly won't change anything but genuine disgust and dissent has a way of bringing the creativity out in people.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Couldn't agree with you more. If the owners did approve a move, there would have to be a new team here immediately. The market is too big and the demand is too great. I'm a baseball fan first and foremost but D.C.'s a football town and everyone knows it. Only a group as alienating and incompetent as the current management could even bring that into question and yet here we are.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    To be sure but at the same time: D.C. is the 6th biggest media market in the U.S. For Snyder to leave, I have to imagine he'd be taking a tremendous risk since the largest market not represented by an NFL franchise is Orlando/Daytona Beach, a full 9 slots below D.C. (according to the Nielson Ratings). And are we sure the State of Florida can support four NFL teams - that would be the most in the country. I could see San Diego, San Antonio, Salt Lake City, or maybe Portland accepting the SnyderSkins (it's still really hard for me to wrap my brain around a London franchise of any kind) but to even think about it and then have the NFL owners potentially lose that market - even if did what the American League owners did in '61 and put in an expansion Senators franchise after Calvin Griffith pissed off to the Twin Cities. I dunno - but I do know it's gonna be really interesting to see how this plays out. The lease expires in 8 years - not much time but a lot can still happen in that span.

    This might be the only way we rid ourselves of Snyder. Only question is: will he move the team and if so, what will the NFL do after that? As much good will has he's lost in the area, it's still almost unthinkable that this team would leave D.C. It would be like the Yankees leaving New York but even in the depths of their ownership woes with Steinberenner, I don't think it was ever this acrimonious with them. What I worry about is that right before the lease is up at FedEx, this team pulls a miracle season out and advances deep in the playoffs. Recency bias settles in and everyone can't throw money at Dan Snyder fast enough, especially if it happens over the wishes of the residents living near the RFK Stadium site who have made it clear they want nothing to do with a new stadium.

    Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Breaks my heart Sonny only got one year of really good coaching with a halfway decent support staff around him (at least on defense). It's one of the reasons I can't bring myself to really embrace George Allen the way a lot of other folks do - especially the way he did him dirty during that Super Bowl, banishing him to the press box. Sonny should be flashing some hardware from his time as a starting quarterback.

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

    Yeah but I'm sorta wondering if its true in this case. This team hasn't won more than 11 games since 1991. Even the Browns (pre-moving) and Bengals have managed to win 11+ games at some point during that span. I can understand it during the Petitbone/Norv years while the team actually did try (and ultimately fail) to rebuild but after that? You're not supposed to be this consistently mediocre in the modern NFL over such a long period of time. Maybe this isn't insanity but this isn't normal.

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

    And with those really rough teams in the mid-1990s, there was at least some reasoning behind it. The championship core was aging and the team had to adapt to the sudden new methods of doing business, mainly free agency and the salary cap. All that and Joe Gibbs retiring happening at the same time - then you throw in JKC nearing the end of his life and focusing all his attention toward getting his new stadium built before he died. And while he was a fine scout, Charlie Casserly was no Bobby Bethard. Of course those teams were going to be bad and they hit rock bottom like a sack o' bricks. This though? This is inexcusable.
  15. 1961 'Skins through 9 games (the worst in franchise history): 68 points 1976 Bucs through 9 games: 88 2008 Lions through 9 games: 151 2017 Browns through 9 games: 143 2019 'Skins through 9 games: 108 points Scoring only 40 more points than a nearly 60-years-old that willfully played only white players - denying themselves one of the most fertile sources of talent in the nation...that alone baffles me. Scoring only 20 more points than a team that, to me, is still the worst ever fielded, is inexcusable. But getting left in the dust but the only two 0-16 teams to date...what do you even say to that? And on top of that, the only team in contention for 0-16 this year has scored 124 points to date.
