Re: Time for an "OCCUPY LANDOVER" Movement

OK, went out to run errands for a while...

I guess I should point out the "lol" at the end of the original post. This was a "tongue-in-cheek" thread pointing out everything that is so frustrating about this team right now.

I did leave out the fact that we don't have cornerbacks we can count on either... lol

It was fun for a while watching the game, but again, when you see the same mistakes over and over and over... (see Torain Stretch Play, Gano in the clutch, D. Hall's coverage on 3 & 15+ and the game on the line vs Dallas, etc) it sucks.

It's even more infuriating when it's vs Dallas... at home... and we are now 1-7 vs them over the last 8.

Its relevant because unlike in Dallas, you're asking a bad kicker to kick from 50+ yards. Yet again, my point is, we've got to work with the hand we've been dealt. Gano is obviously shaky with anything around 45+ Under that, if he misses, he SHOULD be royally kicking himself. An NFL caliber kicker needs to make those and he doesn't even do that regularly. So you expect him to make something longer than 50+ with the game on the line? Please. You're playing a game of chance at that point.

We need to get Gano in better field position I'd say anything within 45 yards and even at that I don't feel safe. Under 40 yards should be money, but he even misses those at times. But if everyone wanted to put him on the cross at that point, I'd completely be backing you up.

So saying bad kicker is bad when he's kicking from 50+ yards considering how hot and cold he's been throughout his entire career seems a bit obvious, don't you think?

well your basically making my point,your admitting from the get go gano sucks so why are you defending this guy? Im not blaming this loss solely on gano but the simple fact is he makes those 2 very makeable kicks we win!
He's shown us he can do it by nailing the 59 yarder at home,so whats shanahan sposed to do? Its not like it was out of his range,but like YOU SAID,we cant even trust him to make a 40 yarder,thats why he has to go and he's the goat.Again,not blaming him solely for this loss and just because we have other needs doesnt mean we should let gano have a free pass which it seems you want to do

Re: Time for an "OCCUPY LANDOVER" Movement

As far as the Occupy Landover movement goes, I'm actually not on board, and here's why:
I believe the Skins are moving in the right direction. I know that sounds crazy, but for years I have been a critic of the way in which the FO runs this team. But lately it looks as though they have taken a different approach: building the team through the dract, eschewing burdomsome and stupid pricey free agent signings, cutting ties with bad locker room personalities. This is a rebuilding process and it is going to be hard and it is going to be painful, but it is exactly what many of us (critics of Snyder & Co.) have been asking for for years. I don't mind losing as much if I think the team has a plan, and I do believe we do.

And why the hell didn't Rex throw the ball away on that play before the FG instead of losing a couple of yards? Dumb play.

Terrible play calling before the FG kick, not that I am defending Gano, but the team didn't seem as though they were trying to put themselves in a better position to kick the field goal.

I can understand Beck needing to go with his lack of playing abiblity, Grossman going for his (atleast) 2 INT's a game, Stallworth although yesterday was his best day all year, Brown cause he really doesn't block, Torain because he must be a one year wonder, ....etc, etc.

But the kicker? I'm not defending him I'm just saying he has a bad game and he should go. The whole team should go then cause they all have had bad days and some have had more then their share.

No body dare's to mention Davis. Mrs. Fumbles. Mr. I can't catch a cold lately. Mr. let me tip the ball for the opponants. Mr. I'll let the Safety go after the ball. It's no wonder why the team doesn't want to get rid of Cooley.

Re: Time for an "OCCUPY LANDOVER" Movement

The chances of getting Skins' fans to revolt against the ownership here are virtually nil but if anyone is interested in seeing how something like this can work, they need to study what LA Dodger fans did to the owner out there.

Ticket sales dropped about 20% over a two year period and fans with tickets stayed home - - did not sell tickets to others - - so that stadium revenue from parking/concessions etc went waaaay down. Then there was a boycott on Dodgers' gear and paraphranalia.

The owner was involved in a hugely messy and expensive divorce action and the decline in revenues made the banks that were providing loans to him to fund the cash-flow for the team very nervous. The banks pulled funding and MLB had to step in.

Danny Boy has no such obvious vulnerability - - although Six Flags and Johnny Rockets are hardly licenses to print money - - so even a concerted economic effort would probably not work. And even if he were vulnerable, too many Skins' fans are Skins' fans only because it is socially important to one's status in the DC area to be seen as a Skins' fan.

Oh, and by the way, if you are going to "OCCUPY" anything, why not OCCUPY ASHBURN. The team and the owner and all those folks are in Ashburn a whole hell of a lot more time than they are in Landover - - usually 10 days a year.
