No Love from the LOCAL media!

Rick Snider of the DC Examiner, said the redskins will finish 9-7 and lose to the Giants in the NFC Championship! He said, we will lose week 2 to the cowboys, giants, and eagles. He also said we would lose to the Rams!!!!! even with arch. His article is under the news tab. What does everyone think of this journalist. Mattyk should you still be setting up Q&A's will this hater?

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

how do you call this "no love from local media"? i think this is a pretty unbiased, realistic and well thought forecast for the season. He picked us to make the nfc championship, for God's sake!

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

He seems to be on the safe side of things. I don't think he's being a hater by saying the Skins play some tough teams and having some doubts in all the new guys coming together.

Hell he says they'll get to the NFC Championship game... how is that hating?

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

not sure 9-7 gets us in the playoffs. It would be very disappointing to add all that we have this offseason and end with one less win then last year. Im lookin at 12 wins

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

9-7 wont get us in playoffs in all likelyhood, and losing to the rams? that would be horrible if it came true

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

I'm thinking that if we are gonna get upset, it will be within the division. Divisional games are very tough to win regardless of record and talent level. Espicially in the east this year.

Outside of the division, I predict 9-1.

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

If we can simply duplicate last season's 10-6 record, I will be a happy man. It's hard to win 10 games in a season. It's even harder to win 20 games in 2 consecutive seasons.

My expectations are high, but I'm realistically looking at 10-6 as where we'll likely end up. We do have some tough games and the NFC East is going to be a dogfight.

go find one, and please expand on your football credentials while you're at it

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

Feel free to dispute his predictions in the Q&A, but to blast the guy and unfairly judge him really isn't cool, especially considering how generous he's been with us. I really take offense to people calling him out.

Agreed.. Why do some of us seem to think that local writers are supposed to be the leaders of the Redskins fan club? That's rather Extreme (pun clearly intended) isn't it? Just because a local writer doesn't think we're going to go 14-2 and roll to the Super Bowl IN APRIL doesn't mean he deserves to get ripped.

I don't think we've completed a Q&A with snider yet, though one is obviously in progress.

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

We're working on our second (of hopefully many) Q & A with Mr. Snider.

Here is the first

Why would the media care about who buys tickets or memorabilia? They care about selling papers..
