Re: Today's press conference

Who cares. Our front office is a looney bin with absolutely no authority. If Lavar "the mouth" wants to talk his stupid hyperbole then just cut him outright. He is no better than anyone else and he didn't do jack shit last year except run his mouth and conveniently cry like he gave a shit. F him. We don't need you Lavar we have a decent defense without your constant over-rated self.

Re: Today's press conference

Basically Matty, coach said that he believes we have the best medical staff in the league. He also talked about how Lavar was mad at him for NOT letting him play earlier on last season. He was asked about Moss and Taylor not attending the workouts and he mentioned something about even though it was voluntary that it is expected of professional football players to basically be there and that there is little time before camp and preseason and how much being there could really help. He mentioned that he heard Santana was a hard worker and he didnt think he missed anything with the Jets. He was also asked if he thought that it had to do with their (Moss and Taylor's) contract negotiations and he said "yes". Thats pretty much the sum of it...I didnt listen to the last 5 minutes or so.

Re: Today's press conference

I'm listening to it right now. At the present moment he's talking about cell phones...LOL!!!

The basic point is that Gibbs basically stressed that neither he nor the trainers forced Arrington to come back before he was ready. Gibbs mentioned that Lavar was the one this past year who was eager to get back onto the field and Gibbs and staff wanted to take a conservative approach to getting him back.

Joe stressed that neither he nor the trainers want players to play hurt. He said in todays game, that is not a very smart thing to do. He also stated that Arrington's comments really surprised him and that they were going to sit down with the surgeon and discuss things. He also talked about how the workouts were not mandatory but that this is a critical time for the Redskins and the players need to be here.

He feels that Moss wants to be here but stresses that it was important for ALL the players to be at the volunteer workouts. He joked and said that players can make babies on their off week - LOL!

Said that Mike Barrow is making progress in his rehab. Continued to stress that Lavar is important to the team's success and the team's future. He also talked about drafting players and stressed character.

Overall...he said that this team doesn't appear to have as many problems as what other teams around the league might be experiencing. He feels losing two players is a far cry from the amount of players other teams have lost.

So far it look's like Irish will get an invite, and Skinz Domin will be the first official members.
Oooo, can I join?! I just love blaming the ONE redskins player who has been to the pro bowl 3 times in the last 5 years for all of the skins' problems and having one losing season after another!

Can we worship Steve Spurrier too? If so, I just have to be allowed in.

Re: Today's press conference

So who is the next redskin for everyone to turn there back on ? It seems like there is more hate for our players then there is love for our team on this website right now.

Re: Today's press conference

PSUskinsfan: Are we blaming Arrington for our woes? Nope. Are we blaming for having a contract out of his league? Yep. I can't think of any player that would turn down more money than they're worth.

Don't act like our comments are all of a sudden new. LaVar is a good player. He makes fantastic plays and is exciting. Problem is, he happens to run right by people sometimes and lets them get large gains because of it. He's not the best player on our team, let alone on our defense. (One could argue Taylor, Washington, Springs, and Griffen ahead of him.) Yet he's the highest paid LB (maybe not anymore) in the league?

I think Brunell himself would be willing to join that club!

Re: Today's press conference

Anybody trying to bring down LaVar isn't going to get any help from me. Last time I tried to say anything remotely bad about him I got crucified on this site. That was before most of you were on this site. But I remember during the offseason/season leading up to Champ's contract year I said the Skins should keep him over LaVar and you would've thought I was trying to get a group together to assassinate the pope or something. I don't think anybody was on my side that time.

Anyway, I'm trying to stay off of this offseason. I don't know what the hell is going on. Where is the discipline Joe Gibbs was going to instill. This is ridiculous. I would have expected this kind of offseason with Spurrier, but I don't know what is going on.

One thing I will say in Arrington's defense is that he is basically the face of the Redskins. He is the most beloved athlete in DC. I don't care what any of you say, that's a fact. I don't care where you rate him on the D, he's the biggest star we have. Is he irreplaceable? No. Does he put fans in the seats? No. He is, however, the most loved athlete in DC.

I think me and Ramseyfan championed the anti-Brunell cause. Then, when he really started to suck everyone who opposed us disappeared from the site for an extended period of time so we forgot all of their user names.

He's just another one of the people that actually sucks that you all have acted like it was sacreligious to hate in the time I've been on this site. Short list of a few examples: Ifeani Ohelete, Ladell Betts, Mark Brunell...that's all I can think of, but I've spent plenty of time trying to convince everyone how bad they are and there's always at least three people who seem to think that it's a personal attack on them...lol
