OMG, this season is a disaster...

Postby KazooSkinsFan » Sat Aug 03, 2013 12:42 pm

I can't believe how this season as already fallen apart. We're stupid and we suck. Our great D line is already falling apart, besides:

- Shannahan sucks, he sucked without Elway, he sucked at drafting. We should have found the next Gibbs, not hired a has been. We should have kept Zorn over hiring this re-tread.

- Kyle is just papa's boy, pure nepotism. He was just carried in Houston by the players. He can't call plays.

- And Haslett, don't get me started. Another failed coach who can't coach, we totally needed a D coordinator who could coordinate..

- Our secondary sucks, seriously, Hall and Oats would be better than Hall & Wilson. And we didn't sign any pro bowlers to replace them? Just journeymen & rookies to back them up?

- Our O-line has no names still except Trent.

- Receivers? Morgan is a bust, Moss is ancient, Cooley is gone and the only one who can catch can't run.

- RG3's done, Shanahan destroyed him last year and Morris was a rookie flash in the pan.

We can't play offense, defense or special teams. Our offense can't block, catch or run. This is a complete disaster. Snyder screwed us again, this season is toast.

Just wanted to be first this year. I figured if I waited until we'd played a pre-season game it would be too late.

The D line already sucked and now we will have to rely on crappy backups.

We should never have let Spurrier quit. Of course, hindsight is always 50-50.

Oh, he can call 'em. He just makes horrible calls. Nobody ever gets open and he never sticks with the run. Idiot.

Or at least play to guys strengths ... like zero blitzing with D hall in man.

I can't go for that noooooo, nooooooooo, no can do.

He was over rated to begin with an now he's hurt again.

and you-know-who is one toke over the line ... sweet Jesus!

And we saw how bad Cousins is in the last 5 minutes of the Seahawk game. We shoulda signed Tavaris Jackson when we had the chance.

Plus the fans suck. I can't even stand up and cheer on the defense on 3rd down. WTF.

Thanks CLL, I feel better too.

CLL? But other then that, thank you. A brother in my misery. How did this season already get so far out of hand? I was so optimistic after the draft when we did so much without a first round pick. I'm going to blame Shanahan for that even though I have no question RG3 was worth any price we paid. But wow, how did it fall apart so quickly after that? It's unbelievable. Let's start hoping for next year...

Now I"m on record with the doom and gloomers, I beat them to it! Bam!

No, I'm a Tiger fan. Detroit in all sports except football. My entire family are Lions fans. Not one has ever had an issue with me changing to the Redskins. Any other sport and they'd have said something. But the Lions? Seriously? I had been a fan of the Redskins in the 70s, but the Lions were my first team. I switched in 1981, my freshman year at Maryland. It was amazing when Gibbs took over. Well, not the first five games, but after that...

We had no baseball teamn after [He s=who should not be named] took the Nats to some "jerkwater town" with no distinction except that it's half-way between Dallas and Fort Worth...to paraphrase Shirley Povich. So that's understandable.

In fact, I remember in the late '90s walking out of a building my company called Maryland Center to go to an Italian restaurant across the road. Talking baseball. They had never heard of the Washington Nationals/Senators/Nats. Did not know we had ever had a team.

"A lost generation", I thought.

The thought of that name... (the fact that it is monosyllabic, and begins with "sh", and ends with "t" is probably not a coincidence) just makes me nauseous.

I always enjoy posts from people who go into an accurately labeled thread to let us know they aren't interested in the topic. If you simply hadn't clicked on the link, we wouldn't be getting to know you better as a person. This way we know what your interests are, and just as importantly, what they are not. Thank you for sharing with us. Guys love to share their feelings about things.

On the topic though, how did it already fall apart like this, Hogster? The season started out so well, where did it go wrong?

I first moved to the DC when I was 13. Then went back to Michigan and graduated high school, then went back to Maryland and stayed until I was 30, that was when I worked with our buds in Maryland. Then went back to Michigan for my MBA. So both areas are pretty much home. Then I started my national tour moving to New York, back to Northern Virginia, then California, Georgia, Connecticut and finally North Carolina. Since I'm building my business empire here in the Triangle, I won't be moving anytime soon. I like it here and I like not moving.

I've always actually been a big fan of the Red Wings and Tigers, so I wasn't switching favorite teams there. I did follow the O's and Bullets a bit, but the O's aren't a DC team obviously and I'm not a big pro basketball ball. I sort of followed the Pistons and Bullets, not really intently though. As for the Nationals, I probably would have liked a DC baseball team if we'd had one when I was there. But following a team that came after I'd left hasn't really been a draw. Though I do follow them in the standings.
