First of all, there is no way we are better off now than we were during Gibbs 2. Gibbs 2's team had heart. Shanny's team does not.
I'm tired of silver linings and excuses. I'm tired of waiting until next year. We lost to a 1-6 team at home in a game that everybody agreed was a must win.
You can calm down if you want, but I am fed up.
The press asked a Redskins executive about the salary cap penalty and the executive responded, "Ask John Mara." So the press asked Mara and he said, “What they did was in violation of the spirit of the salary cap. "
Oh I see now, even though there was no actual salary cap in 2010 according to the CBA, the "spirit" of the salary cap still existed. Thanks for clearing that up Mara.

A recent blog post : The Risk of Competition
I swear it's not the losses as much as it's how we lose.. I thought Shanny was a disciplinarian? This team, nearly 3 season in, is just as undisciplined as ever.. False starts every time were across the 50.. Holding calls out the yang, illegal formations, blocks in the back.. Stuff like that doesnt need talent to be evaluated, it's all coaching and what you let your team get away with.. Shanny looks old and overwhelmed imo.. Writing off the season already.. Im not afraid to say it, he's failing as a HC.. I love Shanny, respect Shanny, but I can't just sit back and watch the team never progress and act like everything is gonna be ok.. The past 2 weeks have been dismal, when you'd expect to see your young team making positive steps.. I aint seeing anything positive.. Even RGIII is being coddled imo.. Why wont they let the man throw the football? Anyway, Im gettin off on another rant.. Sucks to be us..
No one expected all the problems of the past decade to be solved in one year or two years, or heck, even three.
What we did expect was a professional team that maybe if not the most talented on the field, was the most well prepared and disciplined.
Instead, we have a team that is the most penalized team in the NFL, with 75 penalties for 649 yards. UNACCEPTABLE. We have veterans melting down and losing their cool in crucial late game situations. Fans have a right to be mad about this. This speaks to poor coaching. Period.
This doesn't have to do with the talent or lack there of on the roster. This has to do with how well players are coached.

If you think RG3 wishes he was a Colt, then you are free to think that. As disgusting and misguided of a thought as it may be.
If you had made this post after any other game this year I would have been agreeing with you 100%. This is the first time this season that I have felt this badly about our team. We have one good player on our team. Seriously, ONE. RGIII is an amazing player. Thats all we have.
BTW, **** Mara and the Giants.
Skins fans I suggest you just invest money in fantasy football, it really makes the NFL much more enjoyable. Knowing the Skins basically suck every year, you can atleast root for some good players out there.
Given the situation, I think you miscalculated your audience, here, OP. Allow me to more accurately acquaint you with us in our current state.

Jumbo, what's up with the pouty, blonde haired boy? He appears way too sane to be involoved in this thread.

I can and WILL play Redskins games too in the future...
Reign, I admire your courage. There are a lot just like you looking at the way the majority of posts on this board are right now and shaking their heads. The hissy fits are so pathetic, but it is what it is. Like I said, the way this fanbase has become the team represents it well. I don't care who started it, it just is now.
Don't feel bad because everyone wants to attack you for this thread... trust me, a lot of us are totally with you. It's just not worth getting into it with them now, it's like trying to calm a 3 year old throwing a tantrum.
