DH, thanks for pointing that out, I've been thinking that the whole time, but as a 29-year-old, I didn't know how to separate myself from the "me" generation. I would at least understand the love for the "U" if half these guys actually didn't leave early. They all love the "U" so much, but they leave in three years instead of staying the full 4. Then my friend reminded me that they're loyal to the "U" because that's where they all got their first paycheck to play football.Originally posted by Die Hard
Just look at the ages of the posters who think it's alright to workout at Miami and ignore Gibbs' requests.
These are young guys, who don't know much about the Redskins history, about tradition, about pride, about integrity.
These are young kids... they are the "ME" generation. The "Give me what I want today.... and you'll get yours when I'm damn good and ready" mentality.
Just the way it is with kids nowadays.
Also, for all of you Taylor supporters, he didn't start the season last year as a starter because he picked up the defense slowly, he had to be suspended by the team for a game, and his blown assignment in the second Dallas game cost the team a touchdown. Maybe, if he's with the team now in these "worthless" workouts, he won't have these problems in the future. The coaches might give the team more wrinkles on defense because what worked last year may not work this year, but who cares, he's working out with the best athletes in football.
