Sigh. Time to hobble off and lick my wounds.

Can't motivate a team to beat a team who has nothing to play for...yeah, your done in the NFL.


How about a bet? If Gruden is still the coach next season, you leave this board. If he isn't, I will. Deal?

This board is on life support as it is and you want members leaving?

I guess the $64K question is; what does this team need? Everything has been changed out multiple times except for the owner...



You have to think positive and see rainbows. Skins are a good team. They will make the playoffs next year.

I'm no Gruden fan but As a coach of a team with playoff berth on the line, what more motivation does a player need? I'm going to limb and say Gruden reminded them of that all week...as player if you weren't motivated to play yesterday that was your problem!!

I'm not so sure that Jay Gruden or any of the coaches is the problem - I really do hope that Dan Snyder does not make a knee jerk move here and let's these guys handle things for another season

this is not about 1 bad game or what happened on the field the last 2 games at home - there were a number of times this season that things just were way out of whack and we saw clearly that the team was lacking motivation - admittedly a lot of that is on the coaching staff - BUT - we had an offense that produced record passing yards and when you think of all the passes that were dropped or wide open receivers that never got the ball you just have to shake your head and then you factor in the poor play from the defensive guys ...


hopefully we let Scot and his guys add to the mix and give all these guys another shot rather than going through the turmoil of replacing coaches - these guys are good, we need to try and keep adding to the mix
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

Even if they do, they'll just lose in the 1st round like they always do...making the post season isn't good enough, this team needs to get back to its SB winning ways...

F A C T - to have ANY chance of even playing in the Super Bowl game .... you must make it to the playoffs

NO FRANCHISE in history has ever won the Super Bowl without first making it into the playoffs
