For me I used to he hypercritical of the Redskins. Growing up in the 80's I was used to winning and losing all the time was driving me crazy. I have been very critical of Joe Gibbs, Dan Snyder, the ball boy, the equipment manager, the guy who takes care of the field, etc, etc. Then came Sean's tragic death and it put a whole new perspective on football and even life for me. Part of me still can't believe he is gone, I grieved with all of the Redskin Nation but I watched very carefully how Joe Gibbs handled the situation and I can honestly say that it changed how I look at everything involving the Redskins. There isn't anyone I would want to have coaching this team than Joe Gibbs right now. Nobody would have said a thing if the team packed it in for the rest of the year after Sean's death. Joe Gibbs showed what leadership is all about, and Dan Snyder really came off as first class all the way. This team will go down with the three championship teams as one of the greatest Redskins teams ever. I have never seen a team play so hard through so much adversity. Hail to the Redskins Hail Victory.
A reformed fan.
