I honestly know exactly what you mean ... finicky and such I've been on both sides.

Not meaning to be a smart ass at all but I'm wondering how old you are because a lot of us remember simply countIng the Lion game as a guaranteed W. That's why that line grabbed me. I wondered about your history with the 'Skins and almost didn't post about it ... But I knew if I didn't the Deadman would. I even just took the first link in my research counting on the Deadman to find an "error" whether one existed or not.

Stay tuned.

Finicky? Had you said "The Lions have beat us twice, lately" you'd have been right... but you said "historically they lose to the Lions"... um... no. Historically, the Lions lose to the Redskins. That's not being finicky... that's responding to what was said in the post. Clintonian parsing really doesn't count...

I honestly know exactly what you mean ... finicky and such I've been on both sides.

Not meaning to be a smart ass at all but I'm wondering how old you are because a lot of us remember simply countIng the Lion game as a guaranteed W. That's why that line grabbed me. I wondered about your history with the 'Skins and almost didn't post about it ... But I knew if I didn't the Deadman would. I even just took the first link in my research counting on the Deadman to find an "error" whether one existed or not.

Stay tuned.

Fun site, huh?


Old enough to remember all the Super Bowl wins - and yes, the wins over the Lions. I remember the Glory Years and all the down years. I have watched or attended every singleRedskins game since pprobably 1981 or so with the exception of college which was pre dish. So, I have been around long enough to see many stories repeat themselves...like bad teams getting good but taking a half step back the next year. Also have seen best reporters and teams play down concerns like, say not playing in the preseason. I also have seen (last year) a unknown offense besting a better team. So, I was not clear about the Lions comment - so the xxxx what.
Drinking the Kool-Aid again...

I thought I explained it pretty well. You seem a little pissed. #shrug

Anyway, good to know you're a fellow long time loyal fan. Sounds like our pedigrees are really close on time frame, attendance, and watching. Like I said a few posts back, I share some of your concerns. Actually, the ones you just raised all seem pretty legit to me.
