  1. Have the Redskins Found Their Answer at LG?

    LG is still a need for the offseason. But if he plays well the rest of the season, I'd want him signed as depth

    Meanwhile, MVP gets it...
  3. Norman: Feels like our true fans are on the road

    And now DJ decides to throw a match into the gasoline. Its seriously stupid for these guys to be doing this.
  4. Thoughts on players crapping on the fanbase?

    Gonna merge this with the other thread when I get home (or if @Woz beats me to it)
  5. Norman: Feels like our true fans are on the road

    But wait...I've been told that Alex throws it down the field just as much as any other QB.
  6. Norman: Feels like our true fans are on the road

    Yeah, he's wrong. 1) Its NEVER a good idea to take on the fans because the player is always gonna lose. The fans pay the players' salaries through their fandom (watching TV, going to games, paying for gear, etc...). It costs me a little over 3 grand a year to have my seats in the lower bowl. Now, I give away some games and sell the rest that I don't go to, but if I didn't, I'm eating that cost. So its 100/ticket plus parking pass (which is about 55 a game). Before I even GET to the game, I've spent almost 400 bucks. Then I have gas, wear and tear on my car to get there (its over 100 miles round trip). And I tailgate, which also costs money. So I'm over 400 and rounding 500 before the opening kickoff. That's just for ONE game. Multiply it by 10 (they make you buy the 2 preseason games too). And then to see a clearly talented team lay a big steaming pile on the field? You bet I'm booing. As @Jeezy Fanatic said, he should've moved on from the question. Strike One 2) The people ON THE FIELD are the ones that are going to change the dynamic of home games and if teams are intimidated or not. And his play hasn't lived up to his contract. Want it to change Josh? Then play better. Strike Two 3) He's been here a hot minute. The Redskins have exactly 3 x 10 win seasons in the last 26 years. We have been to the playoffs only 5 times in the last 25. Can the Jints say the same? No. Last year and this year are a temporary dip. They have won SB's in the past 10-15 years. That goes a LONG way to letting fans deal with a 3-13 season. Talk to Jints fans after those 3-13 seasons continue on for decades where they don't ever get above 6 and 7 wins and only occasionally make the playoffs with a 9-7 record. So to compare the two fanbases is to be ignorant of the realities in which they have lived for the past 2 (almost 3) decades. Strike three. I'm now fine with moving on from our "zone corner" after this year.

    Agreed there E. But even with that, we had plenty of chances agsinst the worst defense in the league. The bright shiny silver lining is that we're winning despite all of that. Which is a testament to the adage "defense wins championships"
  8. Week 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers GDT

    Yes. But that was in our control. My point was that the Bucs kicker missing and Evans drop were giving the game away. Because you dont even get to the Fitz fumble if Evans holds on. Instead of fumbling when he went sideways (instead of falling forward for the 1st), the score should've been 16-15 at that point, with the Bucs about to tie it up with the XP. Fitz wouldve ben on the bench after the scoring drive at that point. And that was even WITH the other 3 turnovers that we caused. Our offense was not good today. I'll take the win. But this is not an offense that has me jumping for joy
  9. Week 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers GDT

    Redskins didnt make him shank 2 kicks. They didn't make Evans drop the ball.
  10. Week 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers GDT

    We really should've lost this game even with Fitz 2 INTs. The 2 missed FGs and the drop by Evans in the EZ along with the RB getting the ball punched out. All killed them.
  11. Week 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers GDT

    Yeah? No. He was average today. Which is definitely better than bad. But its not good either.
  12. Week 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers GDT

    Yep. It definitely hurt them. I'm gonna put the first INT on him. 2nd was on the recriver running too deep and not looking for the ball. This last fumble was on him too. But remember, had Evans not dropped the ball right in his hands, that play doesnt happen What also hurt them is the RB getting the ball punched out and missing 2 FGs

    Who the heck is McKinzy??
