Anyone been to Redskins Park for practices or scrimmages before? Is this boring to watch or actually a good time? Holla back, nugga.

Just don't go. Watch the games from home and stop giving Danny boy your hard earned money. Even if you get free tickets, don't go. You will still end up spending $100 to go to the game. Don't buy any offical redskins gear or merch. The madness must end.

Boycott the Redskins. Danny Boy is not the sole owner. If the Redskins start losing money, maybe the other owners will buy his ass out. I would think with the mess he has made with his other endeavors (for example, Six Flags and Red Zebra), he should be getting to a point where cashflow may become an issue and a buy-out may have appeal. The only way the Redskins will be good again is if this idiot is no longer there to treat it like his personal Fantasy Football team.

Here is my reading of Danny Boy's mind. Snyder has invested everything in defense this year. The offense is a total mess, from Zorn's uninspired coaching to Jason Campbell's struggling with the offensive scheme to Clinton Portis, who runs four yards and then falls down, to the receiving corp, which is made up of a couple of slot receivers and some newbies who can't catch a cold. Oh, and Snyder has gutted what was already a pitiful O-Line.

I think Snyder is being passive-aggressive, here. He has created a situation where the offense is going to fail miserably at all levels. This will give him the latitude at the end of the season to fire Zorn, not renew Campbell and dump a receiver or two. He'll then hire Mike Shanahan for some ungodly amount ($50 million for five years, maybe?) because Clinton Portis liked him.

And then is put on IR three games later after running into the blitz because of the Redskins' shitty O-Line.

Does anyone else feel like Joe Bugals time is done?
I'm not so sure the personnel on the o-line is the problem. It may be that Bugal focuses mostly on run blocking and is kind of out of his element with modern pass protections.

They are using a guy on the O-Line who hasn't played in the NFL in four years. Of course it is the personnel. They don't have any.

As for Bugel, if run blocking is his focus, how come there are never any lanes for Portis to run through? He always has to go on the outside looking for a few yards to run. Portis himself has bitched about this.

But is that because they aren't learning modern run blocking either? All Bugal had to do back in the day was the counter tre and give Riggins or another big guy the ball and blast through. WE don't use big RB's anymore except on very short yardage and even then they still run Portis a lot.

I don't know the answer to that. All I know is Mike Sellers made the Pro-Bowl, primarily for creating a crease for Portis. The problem is, nobody else on that O-Line seems to be able to.

Probably not. But whatever team he ends up on will go to the Super Bowl the following season. It is the Redskins curse!

Brad Johnson (cut by Redskins, Super Bowl win with Bucs)

Stephen Davis (cut by Redskins, Super Bowl appearance with Panthers)

Ryan Clark (cut by Redskins, Super Bowl win with Steelers).

This has actually happened on several occasions since Snyder took over.
