Put it this way. This Redskins franchise hasn't been exactly right since Jack Kent Cooke's death. It all started with Cooke not leaving a will and handing the team, the stadium, and Redskins park over to his son John. If that happened, there would have been no Milstein bros. buying the team although Jerry Jones, Al Davis and the rest of the owners didn't approve their purchase of the franchise. Dan Snyder was to initially be a minority owner with the Milsteins. After the owners didn't approve, everything went back to Cooke's estate. Snyder sold Snyder Communications and then bought the Redskins. And the rest is gloomy history in the making from there on out. I never understood why the NFL owners didn't approve of the Milstein purchase of the Redskins. For all we know, they would have been excellent owners.

The team hasn't seen stability since Jack Kent Cooke died. If John Kent Cooke owned the team, the Redskins would have been contenders every year. This Redskins franchise has been in disarray since Snyder purchased it.

Hey Smoot, those were some great games. You played in all of those games. But the game in 1997 was more exciting simply because it was the first game ever played at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium/Fed Ex Field and it went into overtime.

"Should have" is an interesting choice of words; what's the scenario in which a team loses a game but "should have" won? The implication is that the team performed well enough, but a few mental errors or seemingly forgivable mistakes made the difference in close game. But I'm not sure if a team deserves to win a game like that. If a team gets ripped off because of a bad call (ie the Packers and the Fail Mary game), then I can understand. But I can't think of any games in the eight game home losing streak in which the Redskins did enough to earn a victory.

Cause Fedex field sucks. Should have never left RFK. but the biggest reason is probably the team just has not been that good.

Even with Rex Grossman quarterbacking, the Redskins weren't the best offensively in the NFL, but they moved the ball well enough last season. The game against Dallas at Fed Ex Field was close. The defense gave up huge plays in that game especially that 59 yard pass from Romo to Witten where he outran the entire Redskins defense on the way to the end zone. It's huge plays like that one given up that causes the Redskins games. Witten is tough to defend, but the defense should never allow a play like that. Take away that play and the play where DeAngelo Hall allowed Dez Bryant to convert on 3rd and long and the Skins win that game.


In the New England game the defense allowed Gronkowski to catch passes for over 150 yards. The Pats virtually had no running game and no defense. Grossman had another fine day that day. But the defense allowed Brady and the Pats offense to remain in the game which is why they lost.

Really solid post. The defense has been the bigger problem under the current regime, which is a shame because we've had the talent all along to at least be above average consistently. Really poor decision to force the switch to the 3-4 w/o securing the personnel to make it thrive. Frankly, we would have been much better off sticking w/ the Blache defense.

But you can't give the offense a pass, even looking at this season. Too inconsistent, especially on 3rd downs. But the real evaluation starts right now IMHO. We should see a more traditional offense going forward, and the play-calling and scheme will make it or break it. We've got a solid ground game, average WR corp (good enough to consistently move the chains), dominant TE and a QB with elite skills. It's on Mike and Kyle.

that'd be cool if they had a couple of 'em and tied them to the ball's motion, so you would go flying down on kickoffs or fg's. Just don't tell me how they handle bathroom breaks.

We're close to breaking the streak. I wouldn't worry.
Yupp. Lets try not to blow this stat out of proportion. Sample size is small and we've just been a bad team.

Ok, so no standing at a football game. Got it. Only cheering from a seated position is acceptable these days.
