So now we are down to comparing the Redskins to the Raiders. Man that hurts.

These are the same fans that cried foul when the 'so called' professional prognosticators had us coming in last or next to last in the NFC east this season.
Yeah im alil amazed at some people calling for zorn's head or wanting collins or colt to start; but i was alil amazed at people thinking we were gonna win 10-12 games this year too. I think we have to careful to not lump people venting frustration at JC's lack of progression (like me unfortunately) as a big group who wants JC out of there.

I think if you polled people, the majority would say they want JC to start the rest of the year no matter what but are starting to doubt JC has what it takes to go from a good qb to a great one.

Point is (like in the media) the small percent of extreme views get the majority of the discussion. When I say "JC is good, i hope he can turn it up this year and be great" no one responds and why should they; but if someone posts "JC is a stupid POS and colt should start" they get a million responses telling them why they're wrong. Just human nature but truth be told I think most skins fans are willing to wait and watch this year; read the posts in this thread most people agree with what matty is saying.

so in short i dont think there is a mass fan crisis on our hands, just a few loud spoken dissenters.

go skins!!!!

This may be off subject. But did anybody see vinny cerrato up in the box seats. He looked like a deer in headlights or he snorted some serious shit. His eyes freaked me out I don't want that affiliated with my favorite team. I was hoping all the smack talk about him was just banter but I saw that for the home opener and it didn't look good at all.

He always looks bug eyed. What does that really matter?

I know what you are saying. I saw him too. He looked STRESSED big time. I am sure if the camera paned on our faces we probably looked the same as Vinny.

It was just out of the ordinary. If you see it and pay attention you'll know what I mean. Somebody in his position needs to have a clear head and he looked like he was in another world.

Well come gameday Vinny has about as much control over the team as we do. His game days are between March and June.

If you're surprised at his bug eyed look you clearly haven't seen him before.

It's not anything unusual for him.

This sure is a perfect thread for this Vinny bug eyed talk, isn't it?

Ok so now it's not about his eyes.

Regardless, when you think about it he has more of a right to be worked up about the game than we do as fans. His job is on the line, not ours.

I don't know why the guy is being knocked for showing some emotion. If he was sitting there expressionless I'm sure we'd be talking about why he doesn't seem to care.

I am not knocking him for it. I am just saying. Free Agent was knocking him saying someone of his caliber should not be showing that kind of emotion.

Hesus!

Probably because he knew the $hit-storm that was coming for Zorn and JC and he didn't want his first year HC, and developing QB, to have to deal with the media and fans jumping all over them after 1 game.

Really Captain Obvious, I thought maybe he just found out Giants Stadium was out of Nacho Cheese.
