Locker room material (kind of)
 
Robiskie detests 'Skins like any foe

DAVIE - Although Dolphins receivers coach Terry Robiskie received his first opportunity to be an NFL head coach when he led the Washington Redskins, he said there would be no emotional ties when walking onto FedEx Field for Sunday's season opener.

"I'm one of those guys who doesn't have to work somewhere and get fired to hate the other team," said Robiskie, 1-2 as Redskins interim head coach in the final three games of the 2000 season after taking over for a fired Norv Turner.

"When they put the team on our schedule I hate them, even if my cousin worked for them."

Robiskie was nostalgic about venerable RFK Stadium, but not FedEx Field, home of the Redskins since 1997.

"The Redskins lost whatever it was that [coaches] George Allen and Joe Gibbs built in RFK," Robiskie said.

"When you walked down that tunnel, climbed those little stairs into the dugout those ghosts were there, like the Gladiators were going to war, and you knew something special had happened there, and something special was going to happen again."

Robiskie thought he had a chance to get the interim tag removed after beating the Arizona Cardinals and their interim head coach Dave McGinnis in the season finale. However, Redskins owner Dan Snyder told Robiskie he was looking for a big name and wound up hiring Marty Schottenheimer.

"After we beat Arizona 20-3 we got a standing ovation, and I thought I had a shot," Robiskie said.

"The next day Arizona hired McGinnis and in the end, he got Marty and I was out."

Schottenheimer lasted one year in Washington before becoming Cam Cameron's boss in San Diego, and Robiskie headed to Cleveland, where he eventually got another stint as interim head coach, going 1-4 in the final five games of the 2004 season.

Robiskie is and never will be head coach material. Robiskie comes out and says that he hates the Redskins? What an idiot. As a coach you shouldn't ever say those types of things about other teams. Classless loser. I can understand if he hates Snyder but not the entire organization. Hey Robiskie, we hate you to.

he answered the questions and gave an honest opinion. no harm done.

i don't really care about his opinion and i don't think he's head coach material, but there's really nothing to bash here.

I kind of took it to mean that he hates any team that the team he's with is playing against. He went on to say something somewhat truthful about how FedEx isn't the same as RFK but that's no big shocker.

It's a little disconcerting to hear that he thought the magic went out of the team after they moved to FedEx since he was a coach for four of those seasons. Talk about making excuses. They won at RFK with Allen and Gibbs and lost with Norv and Biscuit. The place doesn't matter but the coaches do. And no, I don't think FedEx is as goo as RFK either but what a lame thing for a coach to say.

i agree that the magic of RFK stadium stayed there. I think its about time to create some new magic. Terry R is not and won't ever be head coach material.

I think it would start / help by changing the name of the stadium back to Jack Kent Cooke stadium. This fed ex field crap is just like every other cookie cutter globalization advertisement.

There is no chance this stadiums name is changing. I don't know how much Snyder is getting from FedEx, but he is a businessman if it makes him money it is good. Don't count on him changing the name unless someone comes with a fatter contract than FedEx.

And especially not when the founder of FedEX is a co-owner of the team now.

Don't misunderstand me, I'm not expecting it. I'm just saying it will take that kind of move to make it more personal to the players. Right now, it's just a big advertisement.
