Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Whew! that was close, squeeky wheel got the grease! Good thing I ranted, eh?


I think I watched it on NBC Saturday night. Couldn't find it?

Related topic though, does anyone know what the radio situation will be this season? I know they dumped their FM channels this fall so I've only been able to find the Redskins station on 980 AM which is horrible. Will the games be available on any FM stations?

I'm on the road a lot of Sundays, end up listening to nearly as many games as I watch.

Alright, thanks man! Love listening to Sonny, Doc and C00ley during games almost as much as watching on tv.

The broadcast has moved to WMAL (105.9FM), I did find it on NBC. I believe the TV listiing showed NASCAR so I was surprised when I just tried the channels again right at kikoff. There they were!
Now, if they could do something about synching tv & radio, I think there is a gizmo to do that.

The fact is our ownership/leadership team have done very little to garner interest. This offseason was a sh!tshow and when you consider the fact we are in a division with one established playoff team and two other ascending teams --- it doesn't bode well.

This offseason proved, once again, that Danny boy & Co. are perfectly content with destroying anything considered as progress while relying on the blind loyalty of their fans. And it doesn't help that smart players, such as Cousins, are unwilling to invest in the franchise and the good players we do sign via FA are for shortened deals ---- which confirms my gut instinct that as long as Danny boy runs this show, we will never get past the first round (at least on a consistent basis).

So ---- yes, my interest has been getting smaller as the years drag on (at least cumulatively; certain years have been better than others). And this offseason has been worse than the overwhelming majority, but I am still a skins fan through and through. However, this season will only be the second time (first was 2014) I have not ordered Sunday Ticket to watch my skins play.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Please stop. I have been told by several posters that all will be well and this is an untouchable subject:

Pffft... great WR play won't help anything, didn't you know Dan Snyder runs the team??? C'mon, bro! :-"


Not even 7 - 7 season but I am hoping I am wrong.
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans for over a decade and a half. Stay away from football operations !!!

I'm hoping that the franchise can find a way to be in the playoffs but I also know that there is nobody coaching or playing here that truly believes that they have a decent chance at being in the playoffs - that attitude is primarily due to Dan Snyder

The Redskins needs an attitude change and that begins with Dan Snyder having a FO that has full control over who coaches and plays here

as usual, hoping for the playoffs this season but I also know that there's little chance of us being that lucky
The Redskins have been a huge disappointment since 1999 - it's not getting better until Dan Snyder stops interfering
give people the authority to do their jobs and support them
'Happy Xmas, you're fired Bruce Allen' would be a good start

When the cuts have been made and the Redskins begin to play for real, I pay more attention.
Correct.

And I've never been able to accurately predict anything from preseason. I don't watch unless I on mistake see it on TV. I just check injury reports.
