Warpath Official Stop Crying Over Who's Not Here Thread.

This is for me more than anyone else here on the board. But I'll start it off. I'm tired of b**ching and whining about who's gone, who we let go, and who we should have kept.

They're gone, and nothing's changing that. Let's cheer for who's here and not whine about who's gone or who we want back. We have some damn good talent on this squad!

Yes, we should have kept Pierce and a few others...name yours if you want, but I'm leaving mine right here in this thread, hopefully never to brought up again.

As an aside, we had 10 players in the starting lineup at season's end that were drafted as a Redskin. I'd like to see more, but I think in today's NFL that's not bad.

Agreed on the Peirce point. I think some people will agree with how you feel. At times, I CERTAINLY DO. So here's my ranting:


Antonio Pierce
Ryan Clark
Walt Harris

Period.

Re: Warpath Official Stop Crying Over Who's Not Here Thread.

Here's my rant then I vow to be positive from now on Scout's Honor:


:

1) Why the F*ck don't we have a hands off owner and a good talent evaluator for a GM?

2) Why did we get rid of Pierce, Clark, Smoot, and keep Bailey happy?

3) Why can't we keep the same coaching staff in place with zero changes for longer than 3 years?

4) WHY....OH WHY....OH WHY?!?!?!?!?.........








ok...I'm better now.

Who was pushing to keep Walt Harris last year??

Talk about a perfect example of hindsight being 20/20.

I could not agree with you more. I get so sick of the whining and crying. I usually stay away off season because it makes me crazy to read all of the BS.

Re: Warpath Official Stop Crying Over Who's Not Here Thread.

As long as the Skins keep losing, as fans it's hard not to examine the possible reasons for it. It all has to do with the players upon which this team is built.

If you no longer want to see people complain about the players, the roster, the wasted draft picks, the lack of draft picks, the players that were released, traded, or let go -- then you'll have to wait for this organization to turn the corner and build a consistent winner.

Until that happens, people will complain about the construction of the team, and the players we should have retained. The noble idea of this thread will quickly vanish if there's another sub-.500 season.

Re: Warpath Official Stop Crying Over Who's Not Here Thread.

Good thinking! This is one of the greatest threads on the Warpath! It needs to be displayed somewhere so it is not lost after 3 or 4 days.

I don't complain (much) about players that were let go. I guess lately I've been on AA's case so I'll let it drop from here on out.

No, I definitely hear what you're saying and it's all true.

This thread is simply my own personal, public committment to stop bringing it up. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'm still unhappy about a lot of things, the roster moves and so forth, but I've talked my eye balls out at this point.

I'm just trying to kick a bad habbit, that's all.

Re: Warpath Official Stop Crying Over Who's Not Here Thread.

Let me throw this challenge out there too. How many teams finished the season with more than 10 starters in the lineup that were actually drafted by said team??

Not to mention that the entire NFC East SUCKED this year. Not one of them was really good in my opinon. This year was a total bust - ONWARD AND UPWARD!!

It looks like we really missed an opporotunity this year.

But you have to figure, Tiki's absence will hurt the Giants no matter what and it doesn't look like Eli has progress very much, if at all. Throw in a possible coaching change in Big D and NY.

We return just about all starters, draft a few solid prospects and we might not be in bad shape.

Nobody wanted Walt Harris back at the time. Agreed.

Who's whining that we got rid of him now? (I know lots of people are, but why?)

He racked up a bunch of INTs playing in a D far superior to ours. He's not any better than Kenny Wright, and I believe Wright came cheaper. They are both sure tacklers and have coverage issues.

I was really, really, really sour when Pierce signed with NY, because he was and still is one of my favorite players in the league. But we've won more playoff games without him than NY has won with him, so I've come to peace with it. He's gone, let it go.

Now THAT'S a good point. Thank you for making it.

When I whine about players gone, I'm not really whining about the players. I'm whining about the decision making. Unless I/we understand what's changed (or who has changed), there's no real reason to think next year will be any better. But that's a lot of insider info we won't see. Roster changes are easy to see. So bitch bitch bitch.
