Re: Annointing a new Face of the Franchise

If you click info on your TV during a Primetime game during the season. It will say "Clinton Portis and the Washington Redskins battle (other teams star player) and the (other team)

Portis by default. As of now he the one on our team that can be relied on for putting asses in the seat.

Re: Annointing a new Face of the Franchise

Personally I think it has switched from Portis to Cooley.

Re: Annointing a new Face of the Franchise

Am I just senile or am I the first person on this thread to put in a vote for Albert Haynesworth? I mean the thread title is Annointing a new face of the franchise. Who better for that role then our $100 million man.

The only problem with Big Al is he's not media friendly. He's a great player, but he won't talk to the media and he doesn't do anything stupid to get on TV. Great for the team, but he doesn't become famous.

You got a point there. Though if he has a big season he'll probably be elevated to Reggie White status. As far as the media goes I think Chris Cooley is easily the face of this team. CP was for a while but the one thats really putting himself out there at this point is Chris. Hell at one point I think Jansen was the face of our team especially when he was in the studio for ESPN on draft day (guys going to be an awesome TV personallity).

Also it seems that Chill Will was the first one to put out a vote for Haynesworth so I guess that makes me senile.

Patriots... Brady.

Eagles... McNabb.

We don't have a guy who jumps out at you as soon as you hear the team mentioned.
The fact we don't have a face to go with the franchise might not be a bad thing, remember there is no I in TEAM.

He can jump over the face of every franchise in a single bound.

If you're basing it on being media friendly then I'm choosing D. Hall assuming he has a good season this year and makes the Pro Bowl.

Speaking of D. Hall and the media. He'll be on Colin Cowherd's show this morning....shameless plug.

But I can't see him as the face of the franchise personally. No votes for Zorn?

Re: Annointing a new Face of the Franchise

You're all wrong...it's the Red Snapper himself, Ethan Albright! What other "former worst player in Madden" is capable of pulling out a Pro Bowl appearance? He has been perfect in long snaps over the years. You just utter the words "Red Snapper" and other teams tuck tail and run.

Redskins = Red Snapper!

i gotta disagree here, the other guys listed as "faces of franchises" dont do stupid things to get on tv, they dominate on the field a la brady, manning, urlacher etc.
