ceviker Posted September 30, 2009 Share Posted September 30, 2009 Ok. On Sunday, I had never been that embarrassed to be a Redskins fan in all my years. This was a different feeling than all those disappointing loses of the past. It wasn't a <sigh> we'll get 'em next week. It was a "... my god, we might not be competitive again for 4 years." I really do think that we're finishing below .500 year this year, Coach Z will be gone, Jason will be gone, Portis may be gone, etc. at the end of the year. But... Its Wednesday. I don't know about you guys, but Wednesday is when my "Delusional Redskins Fan" mode kicks is. This is basically me starting to feel better about the next game / team for reasons that any logical person would see as ridiculous. So I start thinking... we're only 1-2. We have 3 winnable games ahead, plus a MNF at home against the Eagles. What if the lose to the Lions finally sparks the team? What if the players actually do like Zorn and rally behind him now? What if CP takes this team on his shoulders again? What if one big play next week leads to another, to another to another and we get the juices flowing? I start thinking. Tom Coghlin almost lost his team to the point where he was almost an outcast. People wanted his head on a stick. They kept him and they won a Super Bowl. Maybe this will happen to Zorn and co... Cooley says he's behind Zorn. ARE says the same. London Fletcher says he is too. And even the brutally honest CP is saying the reason they are losing games is because of execution, not play calling. What if we beat Tampa? We'd be 2-2. That's not a terrible spot to be. What if we finally score 30? Bombs over Baghdad may not have happened, but god damnit, maybe bombs over pirates can. Teams have come back from far worse situations than ours. Why can't it be our turn? Why can't we crawl out of the cave for once. There very well maybe a fat lady waiting for us very soon. And I may have ear plugs in my ears. But damnit, I don't hear no stinkin fat lady right now and I'm damn sure I'm not ready for the 'Skins season to be over. Love me some Delusional Redskins Fan Wednesdays. HTTR Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
