    Redskins Tank-A-Thon: Your Creative Idea Of How The Redskins Could Throw A Game

    Forfeiture --- FedEx Field declared unplayable, after a Rolling Stones Final Tour concert? Or ineligible player participates (more of a high school rule)? Or not enough healthy players at certain positions, fearing for player safety (which has some truth)? Just throwing out a couple of ideas.

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

    Actually, the RFK site might be the best site, after all, given the attendance patterns at FedEx Field the last several years. Look at the Los Angeles Chargers, playing in tiny StubHub Center. This might be where the NFL is headed.
  3. Hey, McFlys (Danny and Bruce)!! This is the Nation's Capital! We are the 8th largest market place in the country!! We should be competing with ALL the big guns, toe-to-toe, as a big-time sports town (NY, LA, Philly, Chicago)!! You think I'm kissing up to Boston, just because they won a Super Bowl, World Series and Stanley Cup, all in the same year????!!! HELL NO!!!! Absolutely no reason in the world why the Nation's Capital can't also be a "City Of Champions"!!

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Both above photos are, indeed, a very sad portrait of what was once a very proud and prominent organization. As is this one, a TV freeze-grab from a few years ago, vs. the Chiefs.

    Will The Home Opener Crowd Be Empty Again?

    Also, the Nationals have a big series this weekend with the Braves, so some indirect competition there. The Sunday afternoon game of that series a 1:35 start. But you're right, many are skeptical, particularly after that second half meltdown vs. Philly. I, too, am projecting roughly a 60-40 Dallas crowd, but would DEARLY love to be proven wrong.
  6. First reported last week, RFK Stadium is slated for demolition by 2021. To be honest, I am surprised that the building is still standing. Age and acid rain have definitely taken its toll on the structure (the Capitol building, a few blocks away, has had its exterior reworked several times, because of acid rain). But a lot of great memories there --- Redskins, Senators/Nationals, soccer and concerts! I'll never forget how much the end zone bleachers used to shake, even during TV timeouts, when the opponent had the ball, often throwing my camera settings off. And in the 1960s and '70s, being able to leave the house and get home from the game afterwards in a very reasonable amount of time (today, not so!!) Your favorite RFK Stadium gameday memories?

    Welcome to the Redskins Jimmy Moreland CB James Madison

    Could be the sleeper pick of the draft. Slipped to 7th Round in the draft, because it was a DB-rich draft and he came from a smaller school. Goodness knows, the Redskins have a lot of holes to fill, so a great opportunity for the young man to step in and contribute immediately.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    Of the 57,000+ that bothered to show up, probably about 20.000 of them were clad in Colts gear. Also, the upper deck is getting smaller and smaller every year.
  9. OK, keep the burgundy pants with the two-striped socks. Perhaps for one home game, take the field for pregame warm-ups in all burgundy, then do a "Notre Dame" and switch to gold jerseys before coming out on the field for the game.
  10. White on white has been done a couple of times before, during the Spurrier years. And during the Zorn years, they wore all burgundy for a Monday night game with the Steelers. Along with the color rush fad, the gold jersey would be perfect for inclement conditions, such as a snowy day in Buffalo, or a foggy day in Chicago.
  11. The gold jersey would be perfect for a snowy day in Buffalo, or a foggy day in Chicago. I'm OK with it for one or two games per season, although I would really prefer it with the burgundy pants.
  12. I kind of saw it coming. Well, at least they could wear the burgundy pants with the gold jerseys and give it a little more pizzazz. The second photo is what the Dolphins are going to be wearing September 29, versus the Bengals (according to a Facebook newsfeed that I got).
  13. Let's just worry about blocking and tackling, not what uniform combinations and they're going to wear on Thanksgiving day.
  14. No "color rush" unis for Thanksgiving Day? Good! They would look like a variation of the Oregon Ducks in all-gold. That said, let's now focus on blocking and tackling.
