Clark was good for at least one big drop a game. And one jaw dropping big play. Kinda similar.

I swear, if Matty or SmootSmack make another post, I'm jumping ship to another message board. I'm sick and tired of the damn Ego and his lap dog. I swear I'll do it, I swear!

Re: Well.. If this is true. Ill find another team.

The only way this is true, is if Shannahan wants to go back to Denver. Maybe, he approached Snyder about leaving, that the only way he is in contact with Gruden. That is the only way I see this happening. Our record is 5-8. About what most realists outside Washington would have predicted. I think that there have been mistakes, but I still think we are better off now than a year ago. You cant blame Shannahan for that big lazy, no good mountain of crap Haynesworth. I think we have two good OT's. At least we are playing allot of young guys, even though they suck. Its better than old guys that suck.

I was around 6 during Super Bowl XXVI so all I really remember is sitting in the corner watching the game and then going to school the next day where I drew a picture of Mark Rypien throwing a pass to Art Monk.

Closest thing I've had to winning a Super Bowl since then was when I started rooting for the Ravens along with the Skins during week 8 in 2000 when Dilfer came in for Tony Banks. There were more Raven games being shown in Atlanta then there were Redskin games so they became easier to follow on a game by game basis. The Redskins eventually became eliminated from the playoffs so I decided that I would root for the Ravens in the playoffs and low and behold they won the Super Bowl.

However even though I rooted for them as hard as I root for any team the experience seems sort of tainted.

Re: Well.. If this is true. Ill find another team.

Way back in the day, when I covered the Redskins for my job and spent countless days and hours with the Redskins I discovered many ugly truths about my beloved Redskins. Harsh reality slapped me in the face on more than one occasion. Many of my colleagues stopped rooting for the Redskins when they got close to them. I didn't, and if I didn't stop then I won't stop now.

Re: Well.. If this is true. Ill find another team.

Not even Dan is crazy enough to get rid of Shanny. A new coach cannot make a difference in one year when he steps into little talent, organization and fewer draft picks to work with. If you step into a team with a bunch of studs then yeah, you get one year. Like whoever takes over in Dallas next year, they should be expected to be a contender in year 1. But not a complete rebuild team. I just hope next year they actually decide to start REBUILDING instead of the waste of 12 months we had this year making butt hole personnel decisions. I mean seriously, Joey Galloway? A preseason number 2 receiver? Really? How could anyone think he was going to contribute at his age. Have they not watched football in the last 2 years? That was freaking nuts. Please draft O line and go back to a 4-3.

Are you trying to imply that I'm an old man Smoot?

Smootsmack: How different were the redskins than any other team you covered? Not trying to get all your info but was it more players that disgusted you or the front office?

Redskins were very difficult, mainly because they knew they had clout when it came to sports teams in DC. Certain players, including some I idolized growing up (who I've mentioned here) showed themselves to be less than cordial. (Others though were super nice...and now they're in jail, so make of that what you will). I've mentioned this before I believe but under Turner it was a culture of confusion and anarchy, under Marty it was basically fear, and under Spurrier it was one of aloofness with a touch of defiance. And when I'd talk to players who'd also played for other teams, they'd all tell me that really only the Redskins had this type of chaos. To be clear, this included years prior to Snyder. Lest anyone think it was all because of Snyder.

Don't get me wrong, there were many great and helpful people in the organization then. But, well look, we all want to believe that the players pour their heart and soul into the team. And we probably all realize it's naive to think so. Do you pour your heart and soul into your job every minute of the day? It's not surprising, but still a bit of a blow to find out first hand. And people I thought were role models would probably be suspended by Goodell today.

But I know this could be the case with any team. My point simply being that I grew up a Redskins fans idolizing many of their players. I was blessed with the opportunity to get a job which put me in a position to spend a lot of time with those players. Some confirmed my reason for idolizing them, others shot it down. But how they acted and treated me and others off the field really didn't affect my opinion of them as Redskins on the field. And if I can put up with that, I can put up with a 5-8 team.

But it also taught me not to go apeshit every second of the day over the Redskins.

As for specifics, I only share that info with a select few here.

As for other teams, the Wizards were a lot of fun to cover. The players were always super nice. If I had to do it all over again and pick just one team, it'd be them. Capitals I didn't deal much with, but Leonsis was just starting around that time and he was always very cordial and didn't try to alienate members of the local media, like another owner did. DC United was never any trouble at all, but no one cared. Not even me.
