We Redskins fans are quick to laugh at the perennially awful teams like Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit (no longer bad), St. Louis (also no longer terrible), etc. Guess what....we are part of that list until we can be a consistent playoff team.
You want the shit talk to stop.....start winning.
We have been embarrassingly bad at times in the last three years and when Spurrier was here. Add in all the embarrassing Snyderatto moments and it is safe to say we earned the shit talk.
Winning cures everything.
Plus..who really cares what others have to say about us.
Let's take care of our own business and punch some people in the mouth on the field this coming season.
HTTR!
True words Defensewins, You want the shit talk to stop.....start winning.

We need to look no further for a perfect example than the Green Bay Packers, last years SBW; A team that went through an unbelievable drought between the years of Vince Lombardi and Mike Homlgren. Twenty three years separate the two coaches and the Packers had only three winning seasons during that time span. Now the Packers are the talk of everybody's town.

"Just win baby!!" problem solved.

Basically. I love our fans that get mad when people like Hodge or Jaws don't project the Redskins to go to the Super Bowl.

Re: Redskins Hatters In The Media

wait, was I just offered the chance not to be called an a$$hole?

And yes I have heard them say good things about the Redskins, when deserved, sometimes even when not deserved. I've also heard others say good things about the team such as last year when Mike Greenberg (who really couldn't care less about the Skins) say he thought the Redskins would finish the season strong because they are a tough, hardworking team with a good core group of leaders who won't allow the team to simply quit.

Don't confuse a critique with hatred

Re: Redskins Hatters In The Media

I think there's some middle ground to both arguments. Yes winning will solve a lot. But at the same time, there are definitely those out there that are never happy no matter what. Or in other words they get paid to act that way and say over the top things.

It can sometimes get quite funky around here on game days, and the next day too when we don't play well.

Re: Redskins Hatters In The Media

To me it's like weather reports.

A meterologist could say "Today's high was 42 degrees. Yesterday those numbers could drop as a cold front moves in from the midwest. Those of you on the outskirts of Warpath County may see a few snow flakes during your morning commute, but with temperatures staying just above freezing we're not expecting much more than a dusting on the ground"

But most people just hear "Snow!!!"

Similarly, a sports media guy could say "The Redskins have removed some of the biggest distractions by trading McNabb and Haynesworth. And with guys like Orakpo and Williams they have the foundation to be good for several years to come. However, they chose once again not to address their QB situation and now have two journeymen 30 year olds battling out for a starting spot. Unless one of them surprises us, I don't see them winning too many games this year"

All we hear is "I don't see them winning"

I can't emphasize this enough.



We have been dreadful for a decade (more actually) so we deserve this bad press. I find it funny that many Skins fans are in such denial that we laugh at the Lions, Raiders, and Bengals, but have had one of the worst records over the past years that pretty much puts us in line with them. We are going to continue to get bad press until this organization starts winning. That said, everything I've seen over this past Draft/FA off-season has been nothing but positive. I think some of you guys are looking for the bad press or not liking it because they aren't riding our nuts like they do the Patriots.

Re: Redskins Hatters In The Media

I think all my teachers hated me back in the day because I used to get a lot of Bs

Quote:
ESPN's Post-Lockout Grades (Matt Williamson)

Washington Redskins

Key additions: Barry Cofield, Santana Moss, Josh Wilson, Stephen Bowen, Chris Chester, Jammal Brown (re-signed), Jabar Gaffney, Tim Hightower, Donte' Stallworth, Kellen Clemens
Key losses: Albert Haynesworth, Donovan McNabb, Carlos Rogers, Casey Rabach, Maake Kemoeatu, Phillip Daniels, Jeremy Jarmon, Vonnie Holliday


Analysis: I said on Twitter that if I were in charge of rebuilding the Redskins, I would have attacked the defense and put a few bandages on the offense -- making that next year's project and allowing coach Mike Shanahan to see what he could get from below-average offensive personnel. That is exactly what Washington did. Rebuilding this team is a huge project, and it couldn't all be done in one offseason.

Defensively, a key for the Redskins with the Cofield signing is Anthony Bryant, the big body needed for early downs at nose tackle who was quite impressive to finish the 2010 season. If that progression continues, Cofield can be used in many effective ways. If not, I don't expect him to be able to handle the pounding on the nose, which really isn't what he is equipped for.

Bowen is young and was extremely impressive for the Cowboys in limited snaps. Wilson isn't a well-known corner, but he excelled in Baltimore last season. It also can't be overlooked that Washington signed O.J. Atogwe before the lockout began. Atogwe is a terrific complement to LaRon Landry and should allow the Redskins' strong safety to really roam and make even more plays going forward. This secondary is much-improved.


Although I commend what Washington did on defense, I still don't fully understand why it needed to add so many new running backs and wide receivers with hopes that just a few of them step up. Outside of bringing back Moss, the wideouts and running backs are a jumbled mess. That situation needs to be sorted out.


Grade: B

Please don't limit it to just your teachers. I am sure the administrators, nurses, and support personnel hated you too. The janitor probably peed in your locker regularly.

It's probably b/c you wore to many Redskins hats and they were all Redskins' haters.

See how I circle round and close the loop? I am too clever and almost never hatted.
