Preach on. Totally agree.Kleese, while I admire your optimism, like others have already stated, this is the worst I've felt as a skins fan in a long, long time. And that's with RGIII. Perhaps it stems from the fact that most of us have now realized that Shanny is done. He doesn't want to be here. It becomes more and more obvious with each word he utters. He's not going to show you anything. We should take the words from the entrance to hell from Dante's Inferno and paste them above Redskins Park: "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."
I didn't watch the second half of the game yesterday. For the first time that I can remember in over 25 yrs, I said screw it. I'm doing something else. I didn't watch the 4pm games. I didn't watch Dallas lose to Atlanta. I watched the Walking Dead and Homeland. I was much happier because of it.
I don't expect much from the Skins these days. But, I do expect the basics to be covered (that's too much to ask, I know). Things like coaching, effort, pride, etc. Ya know, things that professionals do. Sadly, I see a bunch of amateurs out there--guys cashing pay checks and not playing together. Guys pointing fingers and not leading. I see a locker room in disarray and coaching staff that has abandoned ship with half a season to go.
Show me something, Mike, you say? What could he possibly show you that you haven't already seen? Lackluster effort? No game plan? No second half adjustments? Dumb penalties? Loss of composure by players and coaches? Blocked punts and extra points? What could he possibly show you, realistically, that would make you think he deserves to coach this team? I'm afraid the answer is nothing.
We have a long, long road back to mediocrity. Thank goodness we've been given a talent like RGIII. Now, let's get some coaches in here that know what to do with him and the defense.
