There's one way for sure to put an end to all the negative publicity, and that is to win games.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

I wouldn't say the pre-season means 'absolutely nothing'...I think that's taking things to the other extreme as well. Just like putting all your stock in preseason isn't good either. I think I'd prefer somewhere in the middle. Preseason is an evalutation time. Talent, execution, skill, as well as attitude.

Brunell did come around some toward the end, but I'm a little nervous.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

All the people bemoaning our offensive play are looking past some things. I will grant that the lack of production COULD be a concern. In fact if our offense had been vanilla I would be concerned. But our offense wasn't even vanilla in pre-season. It wasn't even a system really. According to coaches they actually treated the games like practice. Essentially putting guys in positions and situations to see what they can do. Doing so with little regard for game situation et al. If we had gone out and tried to run a system in those games I would be very worried. Even a vanilla system. As it is we did not. We went out and worked on plays. We'd a run a play one direction then run the other direction on the next play. One game we didn't max protect but like 2 or 3 times to whole game. We left the o-line all on islands just to work on that aspect. We didn't run any system so why should we me worried when the O looked like poo?

When Joe Gibbs comes out to a post game conference like after the Patriots game and looks like absolutely nothing happened that should tell you something. Either the old man is crazy or he knows that what happened wasn't a real indication of anything.

sean salisbury gave us some love when I was watching ESPN the other day...I think he said we would win the division or at least make the playoffs

You hit the nail right on the head.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

perhaps the biggest benifit to our preseaon is Minnesota has absolutely NO gametape to watch on us. We have shown NOTHING. they are preparing for us with out knowing what our offense will be throwing at them. Sure they can go and look at KC film but our skill players are what will be the difference. They have never seen this new scheme with our players running it. They are in for a rude awakening come spt.11. They have no clue what is about to happen to them. whooohoooo i am getting excited. Gibbs is no fool ladies and gentlemen and he has set a huge trap for the vikes and they are about to walk into a shit storm. Moss, lloyd,randle el, cooley, portis(god willing), ducket,betts, patten, and the list goes on. Come get some Minnesota!

Re: No love for Ol' DC

Yeah, we need to beat the Vikings before anyone will shut up, at least for a few days. Dan Patrick just said on his national radio show that the Skins will lose to the Vikings and Joe Gibbs quickly will be on the hot seat. He ridiculed the Skins for playing Portis in the preseason.
Only was to stop Patrick and others is to win.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

Dan Patrick is a dumb sh*t. Just everyone who works for ESPN on camera is. I can count on one hand the people who do good work for that company. Gammons used to, Mortensen is quality, Clayton does a good job, Tom Jackson is only sane person there when it comes to TO. That's it. I got 4. Now on the other hand and feet I can count all the dumbasses. I wont bother lisiting those 15 or 20 idiots.

Ouch. What about Jaws, Hodge, Theismann, TAFKAS, Trey Wingo...

I'll give you Jaws and that's it. Notice I was careful to only reference on-air talent. Nothing was said or inferred about the cogs who make the place work. Of course if TAFKAS can get a job there what does that say?

I tried AMD's scented oil ritual and that's how I got hired here.

On a personal level I've only met a few on-air people quite honestly. But I do like Wingo. And Brian Kenny. You can have Mike Greenberg.

It's interesting though. I mean it applies to all teams but I'll use the Redskins as an example. But it's funny how on the one hand people here can say "oh we're awful, preseason exposed all our flaws. Brunell is done, Portis is hurt worse than we're being told." And so on. But no "outsider" can say those same things. It's like Brud can yell at his kid, but I can't. Or BSB and I can jokingly talk in some thick Indian accent but Matty and Schneed can't. Not the greatest analogies, but I think you get the idea.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

I think that the core of this board has grown into the realization that we honestly know more than just about every talking head on any major sports network. They simply dont have the time to know every little thing we do. When someone around here says something that I disagree with I will say so but I will have respect for that. When Dan freaking Patrick, who probably hasn't watched more than 7 plays by the skins this whole preseason, says we stink I take serious umbrage. Dont be hating or lovin' if you are uniformed. Most of these guys are woefully uninformed.
