I don't mean to pile on you man, but the current administration has already drafted a defensive lineman in the 1st round before, Kenard Lang.

Right now I'm getting nervous though. For some reason I think the Redskins are going to pick Adrian Peterson.

I just hope this is paranoia and the Skins end up with Okoye.

I'll say never in this case and bet the farm on it.

They've made some questionable decisions in the past, but I don't think they've made any flat out horrible, dumb, retarded moves which drafting JR would be.

Lang was drafted in '97, long before Snyder owned the team.

I guess I find it hard for anyone that follows the Skins to see it otherwise. 2 playoff appearances in 15 years, losing record after losing record, dumb move after dumb more, a team that is closer to the Lions & Cards than the Pats. I need the Redskins to actually do something good on the field for more than just a season before I start saying everything is hunky dorey.

Re: Latest from JLC: The lying game

The glass half-empty folks will never understand the glass half-full folks and vice versa. That's just the reality of it.

Personally I choose to take an optimistic view on things since I consider football and the Redskins to be a fun escape from reality. I don't see the point in being pessimistic, if I ever get to that point I'd probably rather just move on to a different hobby.

Re: Latest from JLC: The lying game

I am always cautiously optimistic. After the draft, regardless of who we take, I'm going to be back on the Super Bowl bandwagon, even though my head knows better.

I'm an Impatient Optimist.
I've been cheering my guts out for so long and we have been starved of winning for so long (save for '05), that I've grown impatient. But always optimistic.

You are absolutely right, and I think a large part of the NFL's explosive popularity has to do with every team having a legit shot every year to make the playoffs, and fans genuinely believing this. What other sport is that true? It is sure hard for me to get excited about baseball knowing the Nats and Orioles are guaranteed to blow this season.
