DC ……BC ……There’s No Mistaking The Redskins Suck

The NFC East off all of the NFL divisions is said to be the most contentious and competitive. Within that division lies the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants , Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins.

With the installation of first time coach Jim Zorn , -it was felt that the franchise and team would settle back into some sort of normalcy. Normalcy with this franchise and with the arrival of owner, Daniel Snyder . In many respects , it has been very much like watching a speeding train ride just race ahead at full speed not knowing what lies ahead and the fact that rail tracks have become buckled. You know it’s going to careen and crash- laying almighty waste amongst the carnage that remains. It’s the only way that I for one can best describe the franchise , since the departure of Joe Gibbs and what essentially went on before his second tenure of the franchise he led so triumphantly to three Superbowl wins as an NFL coach.

Well once again it’d appear that not all is right in Daniel’s world and the belief is that Zorn’s head could well be on the chopping block , if the team doesn’t fare well this season. And if the team’s present record (1-2-0) and performances are anything to go by. Then the Washington Redskins and their fans are in for a long and arduous season. Statistically also, the team leaves a great deal to be desired . And their lone victory this season came over the hapless St Louis Rams, 9-7 . A game for which it can be best described as atrocious in its execution , by both teams ! In actuality for the Rams , of whom it can be said ,they’d be hard pressed to even give a high school team a competitive game. Such, has been their travails to date.

What may well just be another pointer as to how badly the Redskins have fared. It is the fact that their $ 100 million man in Albert Haynesworth has , had about as much presence on this team. As a vegetarian would feel comfortable in a room filled with carnivores with an assortment of venison laid out for all to consume. Through three regular season games thus far , Haynesworth has bearly registered a blip on the radar screen , registering just 9 tackles and 1 sack through those games. For $100 million , I’m sure that the Redskins’ fans and the NFL as a whole, were expecting more from the player ! But Daniel Snyder , as we all know has never been scared to overpay for what he deems to a priceless trinket. In this case however, he’s overpaid for a dud !

One may well point to the fact that there has been continuous upheaval with regard to the organization. From the management on down. But for the team’s much derided quarterback , Jason Campbell . He’s had to deal with more than most. Since his entrance into the NFL and with him being named the team’s starter at the position. He’s had to go through two coaches and at least seven different offensive coordinators in that time . And one wonders why there’s no cohesiveness and fluidity to Campbell’s game ? He’d have been better off doing the play calling himself , for all of the assistance he’s been given. We could also point to the fact , that even though it’s been said that Snyder has taken a hands off approach. You can’t help but feel that he’s got his finger on the pulse of almost everything that takes place within the locker room and with Zorn’s own strategies and training practice schedules.

The  Lions  would   go  on to  defeat  the  Redskins   19-14  and   halt  their   19   game    regular  season  losing  streak.        picture  appears  courtesy  of  ap/photo/  Carlos   Osorio   .................................

And in terms of a respite , it’s hard to see where the Redskins’ next victory may well come from. They essentially played down to the level of the Detroit Lions in succumbing to a 19-14 loss at Ford Field , in Detroit , Michigan ,during week three. There the Lions were able to stop their run of 19 consecutive regular season game losses, with the defeat of the Redskins. And about the only bright spot for the NFC East team on the day , may well have been the play of Campbell , himself . And that of his wide receiver Santana Moss . The player had 9 receipts for a total of 175 yards , with a touchdown to show for his production on the day. For Jason Campbell it was his best production by far in terms of the season as it stood. His figures , 27/41, 340 yds, 2 TD’s , 1 INT.

The  player  suffered  an  injury   during  the   game  and  as a  matter  of   precaution  his   day  was   curtailed  in  order   for   him  to   undergo  X-rays  to  make   sure  his  injury  wasn't   far  more   serious.  With   $100 million  being  vested  in the  player  ,  the   team  has  yet  to   reap   any  reward   from him   by  way  of  leadership   or  his   presence   on the  field.   picture  appears  courtesy  of   ap/photo/ Paul  Sancya    ..........................

With the team now sitting afoot of the NFC East . One has to ask what direction is this team said to be going in ? They’ve not posted a winning season since 2007. And having made the playoffs that season , they brushed aside by the Seattle Seahawks in a wildcard berth playoff loss , 35-14 . Prior to that their last postseason berth was attained in 2005. Something of a sobering thought for one the NFL’s wealthiest teams. For all of the money spent by Daniel Snyder. He’s yet to reap the dividends of his largesse. Much of that appears to be from the ineptitude shown when it comes to making personnel decisions and his continued interference in the team’s day to day operations.

Wife wants Haynesworth to pay bills, stay away

By Teresa M Walker , AP Sports Writer

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP)—Albert Haynesworth’s(notes) wife is asking a Tennessee judge to force the Washington defensive tackle to pay veterinary bills, his daughter’s tuition and other family expenses dating back to when she filed for divorce in April 2008. She also wants a restraining order against him.

Stephanie Haynesworth said in the motion filed Sept. 17 that Haynesworth recently threatened to stop paying temporary support that began in June. The motion alleges he said he wouldn’t pay his daughter’s monthly tuition and a $4,000 veterinary bill that he authorized for the family dog.

A Williamson County Chancery Court judge had been scheduled to hear the the motion Tuesday, but it was continued until Oct. 13.

Haynesworth signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with Washington in the offseason. The Redskins said Monday that Haynesworth was in Tennessee for an MRI on a sore hip and personal business.

Attorney Joanie Abernathy, who is representing Stephanie Haynesworth, did not immediately return a message left at her office. The attorney representing Albert Haynesworth also did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.

A vocal Redskins’ fans lets his thoughts be known about the franchise and particular its owner and coach

Where the team now stands at present , where they no doubt thought that they would be and want to be. Well it’s like describing the distance that needs to traveled between the earth and the moon. It’s safe to say that at present , as the pilot said to be steering this particular vessel. The coach, Jim Zorn is in need of a great deal of luck and someone who can best assist him in navigating this journey. So far the direction that they’re said to be going in bears no resemblance of the desired destination sought by the fans of the Washington Redskins , or that of its owner , Daniel Snyder. They’ve been aimlessly wandering around and plummeting the depths of mediocrity. That it’s hard to empathize with the franchise or its owner.

A somewhat comical view as to who Snyder ought to hire .
Be sure to watch this in its entirety , it’s a hoot !

We can all agree upon the fact that this is an organization that in one way or another has seemingly continued to suck. And they’ll carry on doing so , for the foreseeable future ! Not because they want to but merely because it’s now become a part of their inherent psyche.

  1. The deadskins are in a world of hurt. They have a habit of making life pure hell for the Eagles. The bringing in of all this high priced talent was a bust so far. When one looks at the skins history they have a dismal record. Vince Lombardi led the deadskins to their first winning season in many years. Only in recent history have the deadskins been good. George Allen and Joe Gibbs and that’s it. Sure the skins have had great players such as Bobby Mitchell, Sonny Jurgeson, Billy Kilmer, Joe Theismen, and John Riggens to name a few.

      Unfortunately for the Redskins that’s all that they’ve got going for them nowadays. And that’s their history and not much else. Daniel Snyder , in some respects – he thinks that he’s a younger version of Jerry Jones. And as we’ve all seen of late the Cowboys haven’t done much to legitimize themselves as real contenders within the NFL. To be more frank, they’ve an all too high opinion of themselves as to their importance around the NFL !

      The NFL allows it , much to the detriment of its image. But then again the NFL has always been about image and they’ve not necessarily cared how it’s been portrayed to some extent.

  2. The Redskins are pretty bad… I don’t really follow them, but it seems like with the revenue the generate would come from being a winning team. I guess it’s just ripping their fans off. They are pretty bad, I even bet on the Lions last weekend taking +7, so I’m happy they suck!

      Pretty bad ? They’ve been downright atrocious over the last few years , since the departure of Joe Gibbs. And it doesn’t look as if it’s about to get any better under Zorn. Haynesworth is already proving that the $100 million that they’ve laid out has been a complete waste. The dividends reaped have been about as worthwhile as investing in one of Madoff’s Ponzi schemes. Haynesworth didn’t go to the ‘skins to be part of a competitive team. He went for the money and not much else besides that !

  3. Yeah, if Haynesworth wanted to go somewhere that would win, he shouldn’t have left Tennessee who by the way, seems to desperately miss him.. Why do you seem to write about all the crappy teams in the NFL?

      The season is but young and one has to look around be observant and write not just about things that are favorable to all. But we’ve also got to look at other issues. I’ve written about the Patriots and I’ve written about your beloved Raiders. So what’s your point again ? They’re but four or five teams that we know that’ll be in with a chance of winning the Superbowl. So why not take a look at some of the other teams that won’t be in the mix ? This isn’t the Fox network who’d have you believe that they’re being ‘Fair & Balanced ‘ . They wouldn’t know fair if it came up and bit them on the a_s !

  4. Speaking of the Redskins, Outside the Lines just ran a fabulous piece discussing the use of Native American names in sports franchises.

    Personally, if I were Native American, I’d be more offended and disgraced at the product that the Redskins are putting onto the field.

    I highly recommend you check out that piece if they re-air it.

    On or around the 24th of this month I’ll be over on the West Cost. As UFC 104 will be in town at the Staples Center. I’ll be there with some of my buddies to watch the events as they unfold. As well as conducting some business with the Los Angeles office of the firm I work for.

    It ought to be good. Light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will be defending his UFC title against Mauricio Shogun Rua. And the undercard will have a heavyweight eliminator between Shane Carwin vs Cain Velasquez. I don’t know if you’re an MMA fan or not ? But that’s as such how I get down when there’s not really much happening in the world of sports that’s all that high profiled.

Maybe that’s why I still like boxing more,, because the guys stay relevant longer… I’m sure I’ll be watching at whatever friend’s house that ends up buying the fight though!

        Much of that turnover is because Dana White is a spaz ! He alienates many of the top fighters within UFC with his autocratic governance of it all. I’m surprised that the Fertitta brothers don’t try and rein the guy in.

        It’s no wonder the likes of Emeliananenko haven’t made the move there. Instead he’d rather fight for a smaller organization such as M1/Strikeforce and still be recognized as #1 heavyweight out there. Anyone who believes it’s Brock Lesnar has been drinking far too much of the Kool-Aid.

      I think that the Redskins can do something this season . But the offense has to be clicking on all cylinders. Otherwise they’ll be left for dead in the NFC East .

      No matter which way you try and spin it McNabb is an upgrade on Campbell . Hell Ricky Martin would be an upgrade ! Though Ricky would love definitely to take “that snap from underneath the center”. He is a proud gay man after-all.
