I still have no idea why someone would risk injury to his starters and needlessly show more of his playbook when a "W" is well in hand.

I know that some people want to make a statement, but what kind of statement is made when a key player blows out his knee while running up the score? That the coach takes unnecessary risks with multimillion dollar assets?

Also, I was just a teenager when Gibbs left, but when did Gibbs run up the score?
1992 against the Cardinals. Buges was the coach. He sent in Cary Conklin to throw a meaningless TD to Monk. He also did it to Glandville in 91. But who cares? I don't care if someone does it cause to me it's pro football. It's not classless what Bill B. did nor was it when Gibbs sent in Conklin to throw a pass when the score was out of hand. You're getting your guys some work during a game. Run your offense and defense til the game is over. End of discussion. I get so tired of this running up the score crap. Brooking looked like a punk ass little kid and so did Randall Godfrey.

Look, it is simple:
1) you folks got whupped badly
2) Brooking and those like him are classless, crybaby sore losers
3) When the people that Parcells acquired for you retire or leave, you guys will have a piss-poor roster. Your future is grim.

On all three points, build a bridge and get over it.

A lot of people were pissed after that game but they were just stating the facts about Belecheat. As far as the Cowgirls, they beat Philly pretty bad in the playoffs, I don't recall any whining about running up the score like some sort of injustice was done after that game. And my main point is, I damn sure didn't go to a Cowgirls board to whine about New England like Dallas fans are doing here about Minnesota.
Bill B. is a jackass. He's a grumpy bastard. No kidding. But that wasn't the point when that game went down. They were playing, running their offense and throwing passes and we couldn't do shit about it. So people here made it personal against Bill B. My point was I really don't give two shits what Bill B. does off the field. Keep it on the field, not what the guy does in his personal life.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

16 pages for a meaningless touchdown pass between two teams not named the redskins in a game that was already decided when the said touchdown pass occurred?

i say we bring out the skins-pats thread and see if we can run this thread count up to say 34 pages.

Gotta ask, who do you root harder for? The Redskins when they play? Or any team playing the Cowboys? If your answer is the later, then your fanhood is in real question. As it would seem that you would take more pleasure in seeing a certain team lose, more than seeing the Redskins win.

And to even mention the words "humiliation, ineptitude and failure", your kidding right?

Redskins resume'
36-44 in the last 5 years (.450)
1 season in the last 9 years with double digit wins
0 division championships in the past 9 years
2 playoff appearances in 10 years
1 playoff win in 10 years

You wanna talk "humiliation, ineptitude and failure", look no further than Landover.



MAke fun of Phillips all you want but facts are facts:

Wade Phillips....lets see 3 years in Dallas:
33-15 regular season record (.686)
2 division championships in 3 years
2 playoff appearances in 3 years
1 playoff win in 3 years.

Lost in Divisonal round in each playoff year. Thats 1 game away from the confernce championship if I am not mistaken.

YOU WISH any Washington coach in the last decade had that on thier resume'.

Charlie Waters - 41 even met him once, got an autograph. Had dinner with Tony Dorsett.

Every team that does well has a certain number of bandwagoners. Like you for instance, you jumped on that Vikings bandwagon simply because of who they were playing. So whose bandwagon are you on this week? Saints? Jets?

(No one knows if the Redskins have bandwagon fans, like I said, "teams that do well".)


Well if a winning teams playoff loss in the divisional round takes your mind off of what your players, owner, a venerable BEVY of coaches, has done for the fan base for the past DECADE, well then I am happy for you.
Why don't you complain a bit more? Sorry to hear about your team in Arlington (since you pointed out Landover, which is closer to DC than Arlington to Dallas).



Consider this an early Valentine's Day gift, no homo, I've just never heard so much complaining out of a guy before.

I'm actually interested in what I said in that thread. It would be interesting to compare the comments then and now.

Can't believe this has gone 237 comments (now 238). A lot of vaginitis down in Dallas these days...

Here you go.

Your first post in the thread say it all:

I loved Belichick's presser. "We're just out there playing football."

If he's accused of having his team ready to kick ass, guilty as charged. The Skins had absolutely no fire, and the Pats did. That's the bottom line.

If anything I hope it serves as a wake up call to Gibbs and co.,but somehow I doubt it will. But to answer the question, I have no problem with the way the Pats scored on us yesterday - none.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

I think what also rubbed people the wrong way back then was the smug attitude Belichick had about it. When he was asked after the game if he thought the Pats ran up the score he said something like what should we have done, kick a FG?

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

Really the only thing that rubbed me wrong about the Pats was the fake kneel downs. They did that in a couple of games right.. or was it just one?

This is what he said:

Quote:
"I've been coaching too long," Belichick said. "I remember being on that side. When I was coaching defense it was my job to keep the score down, not theirs. When you're playing defense it's your job to stop them. It's not (the offense's) job to not score. It's like I tell the offense, what the (bleep) do you think I send you guys out there for? To punt? We have a punt team for that. That's not your job. Your job is to go out there and score points. If you come off the field and you haven't scored points you haven't done your job."

Being a Redskin fan means you hate the Cowboys, Eagles and Giants. Most Cowboy fans I know dislike the Redskins, Eagles and Giants. That's the way it should be!

Ya'll got your punk-asses kicked. That's all that matters. Make excuses, whine, talk about us, whatever...Minnesota made Dallas their bitch and I enjoyed the hell out of it.
