I said to myself once (around the time that Gibbs retired in early 2008) that Cerrato could probably run the personnel show on his own.
That's got to be up there on this list!
I once had a girl ask me .... " where is the yellow line for first downs? "
My neighbor told me a couple years ago that he thought the Redskins and the Giants would be playing in the Super Bowl. Instantly lost respect for him after that.
"Sorry Danny, but I need your helmet for the rock party in Pasedena on January 30..."
The scary thing is, I've probably convinced myself that we were on the cusp of greatness about 20 times since we last were great:
1998: Now that we have Stubby and Big Daddy, no one will run on us!
1999: New ownership will usher in a new era of championship football!
2000: If you add that many stars to a division-winning team, they will get to a Super Bowl!
2001: Marty will be the face of this franchise for years to come!
2002: Spurrier is the next NFL offensive genius!
2003: Spurrier has learned what it takes to win in the NFL!
2004: Gibbs is back? Finally we'll climb back to the top of the mountain!
2005: Seattle?? When have they ever beaten us with something on the line?
2006: If you add that many stars to a playoff team, they will go to a Super Bowl!
2007: Seattle? They can't knock us out of the playoffs twice in a row!
2008: Jim Zorn is exactly the shot in the arm this franchise needs!
2009: Jim Zorn has learned what it takes to win in the NFL!
2010: Shanahan, a real GM, and McNabb??? Super Bowl!
So, as you can see, I've been tricked a lot (and by the exact same thing) through the years...I've never claimed to be smart!
Then a play or two later Cooley is open at the 2 and can't catch a pass that would resulted in either a TD or first and goal. We score a TD there, we go to Dallas to upset them in the second round. I'm sure of it!
Instead, we have to settle for a (missed) FG attempt and the rest is history. I'm still convinced that even had we made that FG, we lose that game. However, had we gone up by 8, I think the Seahawks are done!
Oh well, the past is the past!
"Whose job is it to move the yellow line on the field and how do the players not trip over it?"....Wow
"Im a bigger Redskins fan I went to the Redskins Jaguars Double header last year!!!" WTF????
"Lax is going to be 100 times bigger than football in a couple years" No way in H#*$
All by the same idiot...
Forgot one...this doesnt have much to do with the redskins but he still said it "Nahh I missed the game last night this baseball coach my friend played for called me at 7 and told me he needed a player for the game at 7:30 so I drove to Martinsburg (over an hour away) in 20 minutes then hit for the cycle opposite handed"...I officially dont talk to this kid anymore.

Long as we doing mea culpas: I said Durant Brooks was a good pick for us.
