Obviously this team is not without its faults but there are problems league wide with each and every team. It's convenient, I suppose, to think every team is awesome and we suck and will always suck. You probably can never be disappointed that way since you expect nothing. But it's just not the way I want to look at things. I'd love to have the life of the person here who's biggest worry is the Redskins.

Anyway, I digres....what was this thread about again?
Smoot... I was starting to wonder the same thing.. what did I start this thread about that has turned into this huge philosophical discussion. There are a lot of good points and I agree the negativity can be tiresome, and trust me I get down on this team. But as 70 said this is football and it is fun. I love talking about, but I think we are doing good and I have optimism for 2007... Super Bowl baby!! and if I was a Texans fan I would have the same thoughts. We love this team cause of tracitional and what it stands for. It is an escape from our day to day lives and lets us have hope and despair. Do you not think for the past few years Colts fans have thought Peyton is the best QB in the league, but damn does he suck when the big game is on the line.. they had problems too, but now look at them, they are on top of the world. I will forever be in love with this team and always bleed Burgandy and Gold, but after the game is done, I still have laundry to do, or bills to pay. It is just a game and lets all have the hope and faith that this year will be our year.... there are 31 other teams out there saying the same thing.

Hail the Redskins!!

AMEN !!! I am with you a hundred percent. Not to get this thread going in yet another direction, but sometimes its just dreadful negativity boiling over and I just have to move on. Its supposed to be fun, we're fans.

I dont believe I am negative. I do believe I am honest and realistic about the Redskins (something I think most on here are not). Unfortunately in those realistic assessments I end up sounding negative because since 1993 the Redskins have not done much posative. I wish this wasnt the case but it is.

Re: Insider info on Smoot from ESPN

maybe sometimes its better to look at the glass half full, instead of half empty?

Me, too because I would be Joe Gibbs (or Dan Snyder or a current player or Vinny Cerrato or ....someone else with some cash).

You may not see it or want to admit it, but you do tend to slant to the negative side of things. I'll admit I tend to lean towards the positive. Nothing wrong with either, it would be kinda boring if we all felt one way.
