Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

And let's not forget the injuries took place on a football field, with football players, wearing football equipment. Scary.

But not to the same team, same position, same day, same score, same injury, same bones, same place on the field. Too many coincidences.

And somehow the Redskins ended up winning two Superbowls between these two injuries. 2021 and 2024 will be our years!

Bring on the curse!

Well different stadiums for one, and two events happening 33 years apart isn’t really proof of some sort of “curse” to me

What if I told you someone walked under a ladder, broke a mirror and picked up a penny on tails at the stadium during those games?

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

Cursed, sucked, cheated, all 3? Regardless of what caused it, this has been a hard team to root for past 26 years. But we're all still here.

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

If the Eagles can go 58 years between championships and still support their team I think I can manage.

People can be so dramatic around here. Acting like the Vinny/Jim Zorn/Steve Spurrier years didn't happen and everything is SO horrible.

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

Regardless of how shitty this team has been the past decade plus, at least we have three Super Bowls to show for it.

I can get as cynical as anyone, but like sdskinsfan says, we're all still here.

Don't forget, both plays happened on grass too, that's enough evidence for me to say we're cursed.

I don't want to give the wrong impression here.

Coincidence? Yes.
Cursed? No.

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

Outside of Gibbs 1.0. Jay has been the most successful coach we have had. Back to back winning seasons. Has the team fighting for a second divisional title in his tenure. I will take it for right now.

Things are pretty bad. How many playoff appearances since 93? How many playoff wins since 93? What’s our record since 93? How many embarrassing blunders has this team went through since 93? Compare us to the Browns over that tenure. You get my point.

Point made

What if all you knew was misery?

What if your best memory of an entire Redskins season was them going 10-6 (only due to a 5-0 run at the end of the year?).

What if all the times you had witnessed the Redskins make the playoffs in the last 15 years they had to scrape in by the skin of their teeth only to get bounced in the first or second round (in 2005)?

What if you had never really witnessed a true "build a team through the draft like all other yearly contenders in the NFL" and the one time you did, they fired one of the main architects and made up a lie to use as reasoning?

What if every time the team managed to get your hopes up, they found new ways to comically crush your dreams?

For years I didn't mind, dc sports misery was all I knew. But now I've gotten a taste of the good life, I've had the experience of seeing one of my teams compete at the highest levels and walk away champions. I want more for this team. If the Eagles can go from laughingstocks under Chip Kelly to SB champs in a few years why not us?

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

Exactly.

It's only because we focus on the Redskins and no one else. Would you guys rather make the playoffs every year only to shit the bed? Aside from this year, I wonder how Chiefs fans feel when Reid sucks ass in the playoffs year after year?

For me, all I ask is we're playing meaningful games for most of the year so I can stay invested. That's what 31 out of 32 teams get to deal with anyway when it's all said and done.
