Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

Let's get off of Peter King for a second and look objectively at what we got from Morton. An average return man. He's slightly above average, but we signed him because he had one good game where he took back 2 kickoffs for TD's. Guess how many he got the rest of the year. 0. None. nada. Not so impressive is it?

I was never sold on him. King is a jackass. 2 games just by having Morton? Are you kidding me?

When you're a perenial loser you often think that the media has a bias against you.

No Daseal it happens to winners too........case in point NBA Spurs and Pistons..........no respect for either team that's for sure. The media is still agonizing why the Suns and Miami aren't in the finals

Who exactly are you calling perrenial losers? The Redskins aren't any kind of losers, bub, and no fan would say otherwise. If you disagree, feel free to go ahead and change your tag line to read:

"Apparently not having unrelenting optimism and calling the Redskins losers means you're not a fan."



Supporters cheer.

Fanatics believe.

that's mainly cuz the two teams play painfully dull basketball. yeah they play basketball pretty much how it should be, except bowen grabbing people's arms , but pro basketball is also about entertainment and neither team really offers much excitement to those watching except for actual fans of the 2 specific teams.

while the skins might not be exactly perrenial losers, they haven't exactly been on the winning side of too many games these past 10 years or so. Here's to hoping and praying this year is finally the year we can say the team starts to turn it around

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

2004 - 6-10
2003 - 5-11
2002 - 7-9
2001 - 8-8
2000 - 8-8
1999 - 10-6

5 seasons without going over 500 in a row. How exactly does that not make us a perenial loser? Phinehas - the records speak for themselves, the Redskins, for the past 5 years, have been losers. Some teams have to be losers, and those 5 years we were the losers. Does that mean we have tos tay losers? No.

How can you disagree with solid numbers. After loads of looking I estimate our all-time win %age to be just a bit over 500. Thanks mainly to Joe Gibbs. I can't find the exact number and my math, even for something so simple, isn't something I'd trust to base an argument on. It looked to be a bit over 500. If anyone can find the exact numbers I'd like to know.

The Redskins HAVE been losing, Phinehas. Why can't we as fans accept this. We act as if the media and fans of other teams should declare our dominance every year like we say we're going to have. I'm looking just as forward to that day as you are, but unfortunately, it hasn't quite come yet. Maybe this year.

Please, find anyone who's watched a game with me and haven't seen me cheer. Read all my posts and find me somewhere that I haven't believed Joe Gibbs will turn it around before he leaves DC. Your argument is based on false assumptions. In closing, maybe you should look at your team from another standpoint and not always the burgandy colored glasses. May help you get a more accurate picture of what tier the Redskins are currently grouped in todays NFL.

EDIT:505-462-27
thats from 1932-2004
I dont think that includes a 22-15 postseason record
so .5222222222 I didn't include ties because I wasn't sure how they were scored.

Also, here's a Peter King article - look at that bias go!

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

Offiss, from what I saw his speed was what opened him up more than jukes. He also was lucky to play when our special teams were starting to improve a bit. He actually got some blocks. I'm not taking anything away from Brown, I think he's better than Morton without a doubt, but I don't feel Morton was as bad as people want to say.

Actually you're incorrect - the past three seasons we have been losers, an 8-8 record isn't really considered a losing season.

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

Chad Morton was not a bad return man. The problem is that a return man is all he is and all he is ever going to be.

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

I have to go with Offiss on this one...I believe he had some nice moves along with some killer speed - impressed me far more than what Morton has done for us.

skinsguy is right .500 is not a losing season, its not winning either. I think to more adequately describe what you are trying to talk about is 5 straight seasons without a playoff appearance.
