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?


Exactly. I started following football the year after Gibbs retired. That was 25 years ago. What have fans like me witnessed since then? Let that sink in....it’s bad.

Since 1993 The skins have had 8 winning seasons, 5 playoff appearances, and 3 divisional titles.

The Browns have had 3 winning seasons, 2 playoff appearances and 1 divisional title.

We are much more similar to the Bears
8 winning seasons, 4 playoff appearances and 4 divisional titles (they did go to the Super Bowl with sexy Rexy)

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

First place with a HUGE division game coming up and people are crying about the past like we're 0-10 right now, talking about curses, etc. Get a grip folks.

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

How is a team cursed? Does someone wave a majic wan and put a cloud over the team? Is it the Indians doing it because they don't like the team name? Is it George Preston Marshall because the Redskins now have a lot of black players? Is Jack Kent Cooke doing this from his grave because he doesn't like Dan Snyder? GTFO w/ this cursed BS.

Yay we aren’t as cursed as the Browns. Lol.

I can't tell if this is directed towards me or not but to be clear, I don't think we're cursed. I think we're the equivalent of Plaxico Burress with a gun in his waist (just can't help but to shoot ourselves).

Also Matty I can't tell if your post is directed towards me or not, but if it is, stamp my name on it.

For the record, this might be a huge division game and all but we're literally trotting out a 3/4 backup offense for it, against a team whose strength is their D. Are we supposed to have blind faith right now? Because I ain't feeling it. And I say this knowing McCoy is 1/1 going into Dallas as a backup and leading us out with a win.

Re: Proof This Team is Cursed

We are far from cursed. Are we historically a mismanaged, misguided, and straight up bad team by most standards? Sure. Fine, we get it. We get injuries a ton too. Gotcha.

Whatever.

We have an entire off season to bitch and moan about historical context, curses, and bad decisions.

I'm actually surprised that there ton isn't excitement going into a Thanksgiving Dallas game. Did anyone else see Colt McCoy sling the rock around last week? It was new, it was different, it was fucking fun to watch.

All you people (including myself) that were bitching and moaning about the boring Alex Smith conservative play-style... you have absolutely got to be excited about Sunday. Cowboys - Redskins on Thanksgiving to pull away in the division. I'm all in on Colt baby, and you should be too.

The injuries aren't a sign of a curse just a bad strength and conditioning staff. Look at Brian Orakpo who was oft injured and only played one full season here. Since he left for Tenn he hasn't missed a single game.

And not having depth to step in for injured players is a sign of poor managment and second rate player acquisition. Thats a big reason Smith got hurt because Wash had to resort to nabbing players of off the streets instead of having quality back ups to come in for their starting linemen.

We’re cursed with the never ending turnstile of bad management, and poor organizational leaders. No real GMs, Cerrato, Allen, Snyder, Spurrier, Zorn, the list goes on and on.

Yet we let the likes of McVay, Norv, Gregg WIlliams, Shannahan walk.

We finally had a competent GM in place named Scot M and that was handled like another blunder.

Redskins leadership is really good at creating blunders and messes and dysfunction.

You know, I once was a Scot M defender, but as his draft picks and FA hauls come due...really not that great.

Also, I heard on one of his last trips to I believe it was the North vs South after season College player exhibition game he was drunk as a skunk. Like could not be hidden...embarrassing

Not quite true, in 6 seasons with the Redskins he played a full 16 games twice, and played 15 out of 16 in two other seasons. He missed significant time in 2012 and 2014.

He drank himself out of the job, let's put this issue to bed finally. He lost his grievance against the team, it was found he was fired with cause.

The fact that people find it so outlandish that a self professed alcoholic who lost other jobs due to drinking was fired yet again due to drinking is fucking hilarious. And yes the team handled it about as poorly as can be. Doesn't change the fact SM is a drunk. Good dude by all accounts, but a drunk nonetheless.
