  1. Still another burning question — I know the three Lombardi trophies are securely locked up in Ashburn, but if and when the team nickname change is a done deal, will the team’s records, statistics, and heritage carry over to the new era, or will we be like the Tennessee Titans, starting from scratch and having no references to the Houston Oilers?

  3. On Monday morning, May 4, one-time Redskin player and Hall Of Fame coaching legend Don Shula passed away. A true class act and great ambassador to the game, every position he held (Coach, Competition Committee member, consultant), he did it all with integrity and by example. R.I.P., Coach Shula
  4. I was in a very weird mood and went to that game, just to see how bad things really were. It was worse than I thought, on all levels.
  5. OK, we have the lead at halftime, now let’s see if we can play another half of football.
  6. So far, the highlight of today’s game day experience was dropping off a new, unwrapped toy at the toys for tots collection point. I actually spent more on the toy than the game ticket!

  8. ....but they still get you with parking (about $40, from what I've heard).
  9. Let me get this straight .....a home game with the equally-bad Jets, .....coming off a bye-week no less, .....and all they could muster was two cosmetic touchdowns in garbage time?? .....yay. Maybe the only thing that is keeping Snyder from selling the team (along with the league's lucrative TV deal) is the "Stadium Takeover" fad. Without that, the stadium would be virtually deserted on game day. Unfortunately, because of the secondary markets, it is incredibly easy for fans of the visiting team to obtain tickets, in almost any quantity. Hence, 59,000 Eagles jerseys a
  10. Anyone who bothers to go to this Sunday's game probably gets to be part of the Detroit Lions 2019 Highlight video.
  11. Along with several of the above ideas, I would hire Brian Mitchell as a consulting/P.R./quality control guy. Next, I would try to "buy out" the current lease for FedEx Field, and get moving forward on a new stadium site, preferably the RFK site, or out by Dulles Airport/Metro Silver Line (proximity to Northern Virginia fan base, the largest segment of the ticket holder base). Then, for cosmetic details, go back to the dark maroon and maize color scheme. And since nickname change would very likely be a proviso for being the new owner, rename them the Washington Cannon
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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"!!
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 o
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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).
  23. Let's just worry about blocking and tackling, not what uniform combinations and they're going to wear on Thanksgiving day.
