The soldiers gave three cheers as they urged their tired horses north across the uneven hills. Some of the mounts, exhausted after a week of almost continual marching, began to lag behind; others, spurred on by their enthusiastic riders, began to edge past the regiment's commander. "Boys, hold your horses," Custer cautioned; "there are plenty of them down there for us all."

I can and WILL play Redskins games too in the future...
Though sometimes, pre-game speeches do matter. I will let Fat, Bankrupt Raconteur Warren Sapp take it from here:
In preparation for [the 2002 NFC Championship Game] Jon Gruden have the single best motivational speech I've ever heard. In reality, most coaches' speeches aren't like in the movies, where the coach builds up and up the momentum until the team charges hell-bent onto the field ready to rip down the entire stadium. If a coach does give that type of speech it's usually Saturday night. The Sunday speech is the matter-of-fact review of what we need to do to win the game. All business. Gruden gave this speech at the beginning of the week. He stood up in front of us and explained that there were 10 things we needed to do to beat the Eagles. Ten Things! He went down the list one by one, blah blah blah, blah blah blah, we'd heard it all. But then he got to the number one thing we needed to do, and he started talking about their kick returner Brian Mitchell. "I want Brian Mitchell's ass on a plate," he said. "And once we finish with the Philadelphia Eagles we are going to go to San Diego for the Super Bowl..." he paused, grinned and concluded, "Where the coach is gonna get two hotel rooms for all my bitches!"
The room erupted. Exploded. That was it, that was the greatest motivational speech ever. There isn't even a second place. "The coach is gonna get two hotel rooms for all my bitches!"
to the people that are saying shanahan shouldnt be given another season..dont you all also say that this team needs continuity? i dont think firing shanahan shows continuity. then RG3 would have to learn another system. i want shanahan here another season at least.
He'll clear it up... basically he said that he wants to see what kind of character this team has... he's evaluating players.... how they respond... will they keep fighting...
To the players it bothered... suck it up and... "fight on, fight on till you have won!"
Being a Redskins fan prepares you for life.
Vinny Cerrato believes he gave Jim Zorn a roster that can make the playoffs. A playoff kicker doesn't miss that kick. A playoff safety doesn't bite multiple times by a double move in the same game.Originally Posted by suze109
I think it's a lot deeper than just a talent issue. Yes, we would see a benefit from having better talent, but good coaches can scheme around the talent they have and get better production than what we've seen. Gregg Williams did some great scheming the 1st year he was here in Gibbs 2. We weren't loaded with elite talent. We had some good players, like we do now. That defense swarmed to the ball. We got a lot of pressure on QBs with smoke and mirrors. We didn't have elite talent on the line like the Giants did with Michael Strahan. I know a very good D Coor. could get a lot better results with our current roster than what we are seeing. You have to be more creative. You have to get more exotic with the blitzes. If you don't have an elite line that can just physically outplay every oline out there and get to the QB, you have to get pressure from other areas, like Gregg Williams did.
he can pass, sure, but he also has abilities that make him a much more threatening weapon.
the more defenses think he can do to them, the more that they have to scheme against.
and the more they have to do that, the better chance to find holes in it to exploit.
Yesterday on the play called back for an illegal formation.. he scrambled out, and the defense left Hank alone in the end zone and pursued, worried about his threat.
Instead he tosses an easy pass for a score... as easy as it can be.
(too bad for the penalty.)
You are going to have spy RGIII whether he is running this offense or Marty Schottenheimer's 1979 scheme. Every time he flinches, a defense is going to react to it.
That is a weapon that is never going away.
Just let him play QB and he will go to multiple Pro Bowls. You don't need to give him 10 designed runs a game. All that does is allow Justin Tuck to powerslam him freely.
If any undercover Skins personnel are lurking, I'd recommend making some calls to Eugene Oregon and making nice with Chip Kelly...guy's a winner who doesn't take BS from knuckleheads. And being the engineer of an explosive college offense, he'd have insight on the best way to use our sophomore year QB. Food for thought...

I think we've got a lot of football players that would make the Giants team as depth, though, and that's more than we can say than at any time in our recent Redskins history.
