Re: Willie Parker Trashes Redskins Lockeroom

Obviously he is a bit salty, but he isn't the first player to suggest this. Didn't a player from AZ say this too?

And hopefully MS and BA will take a page from the Steelers and ship AH out of town the way the Steelers got rid of Santonio Holmes.

I don't interact directly with the current team anymore but I do know that there is a certain reputation around the league about the team..well I should say, was a certain reputation. I do believe it is changing. Most of the "abusers" are gone.

But the Redskins have had a seesaw culture (if that even makes sense). I was there during the Turner, Marty, and Spurrier years.

And I've talked about this before.

Norv-bless his heart he really tried, but he just couldn't command any respect. Mainly because he didn't try to earn it, so much as he tried to force it upon everyone without really proving he deserved it

Marty-took a while to earn people's respect, but he got it

Spurrier-he just wanted to coach football and there was no discipline at all during this time. 2002 was my favorite year covering the Redskins. Non-stop partying. I've mentioned here how I used to get phone calls from players during meetings...during their meetings, not mine. Heck, I used to plan parties for these guys "Come to Rod Gardner's Birthday Party...Live at the Ibex!"

Gibbs-Well, by now I was gone but by all accounts instant respect and accountability

Zorn-As I've heard it, very similar to Norv. But then what made it worse was Cerrato above him

Anyhow, I don't doubt what Parker was saying may have been true last spring. But I don't know if it is so much now
Parker uses the label as if it's an inherent trait exclusive to the Redskins. It could be safe to say there are other teams around the league that could bear the same title [to some degree] if sought out.

What bothers me is when players like Parker come through for no more than a cup of Coffee and leave with a wealty of criticism as if he really knows what goes on here on a consistent basis. He was not here long enough to know very much about the inner workings of the team.

It really irks me at times when players come here having nothing but good things to say and leave [in most cases not of their own volition] and have nothing but derogatory things to say when they leave. It's happened so many times before with Pierce, Sellers, Arrington and that's just to name a few.

Re: Willie Parker Trashes Redskins Lockeroom

Culture change doesn't happen overnight. We had a lot of turnover last year and will have plenty more again this year. You can just see by the draft philosophy this year that a strong emphasis was placed on character and work ethic.

Re: Willie Parker Trashes Redskins Lockeroom

At the end of the interview one of the hosts says

"And whats real unfortunate is uh, part of Willie's skill set doesn't really lend itself to be a third down back because he really can't catch the football...(*giggle*)...Just cant !

Bum ass effer ! Keep making your youtube videos so teams can see that you still have it.

Yep, it is the redskins fault that he sucks. All the partying kept him from making the team. Get real. He's just pissed that he got cut.

I agree with that.

Did he say that was the reason that kept him from making the team? I think injuries have more than anything to do with it, which he acknowledge. So why are you raging about something he's never claimed. He's stating a fact, and you clearly are in denial.

I agree with you Matty on that it doesn't change over night. However, I think what also needs to change is the mentality from Skins fans in general. Just because a person says something about your organization doesn't make him bitter or mad he got cut/traded/low balled, etc. It just means he's telling you what you don't get to see.


I found a picture that accurately describes many Skins fans.




I keep hearing over and over again how partying didn't affect the SKins back in the 80's, but Gibbs says otherwise. They got blown out in the Super Bowl largely in part because they were partying that whole week. I also don't recall a perfect (or near close to perfect) season either and to assume their partying didn't affect their W/L record as well is probably misguided.

Last years record:

Away: 4-4
Home: 2-6

Wonder why now we get shit on at home? Don't think that Eagle blowout was from kids partying that whole weekend? It's not all partying, but it certainly doesn't help things when you lack talent. Also, quite a few insiders have said exactly the same thing Smoot has said earlier in this thread. One in particular is close to the players and knows it's a ongoing thing for some of these guys.

Re: Willie Parker Trashes Redskins Lockeroom

Fans of any team are generally going to defend their team. That's not unique to the Skins. He may be speaking some truth, but at the same time he does come off sounding a little bitter.

I wouldn't expect anything less from Cooley.

Re: Willie Parker Trashes Redskins Lockeroom

After 10 losing seasons, some in embarrassing fashion, I can see certain skins players as not having the same drive and dedication they had in the past.

Moss, portis rogers, etc have been here thru different coaches and off-field circuses that I could understand a person's natural inclination to stop trying as hard, to stop taking things as serious b/c in the end . . . . we just lose anyway.

Not to say what willie said is true or not, but a decade of losing and all the off-field stuff could be fodder for discontent and uninterested players.

Re: Willie Parker Trashes Redskins Lockeroom

10 losing seasons?

Under Snyder they've had 6 losing seasons. Granted that still sucks but still...
