Thus far, Daniel Snyder hasn't crumbled under the pressure, mainly provided by media, including many of those same outlets and reporters/broadcasters that purport to be such major Redskins supporters. I say, "Enough!" <BR> <BR> If renaming pressure ever becomes so great that the Redskins organization caves, lets rally around the DMV 'Skins (not Washington, most of the critics of the name ar...

I am not a pollyanna but I think we have some good players. RGIII has only been in the game two weeks and, in the second half of each game, we can see the rhythm coming back.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 20:38:27 EST Lavar Arrington Anyone listen to Lavar Arrington on 106.7, the FAN? He has pretty good discussions on the state of the Redskins. Wed, 13 Jul 2011 09:54:35 EST Any good gossip on the skins? Anyone heard any news or gossip on the Redskins lately? Haven't heard much about them myself. Mon, 27 Jun 2011 12:12:43 EST How Well Did We Do In the Draft? What does everyone think about our draft choices this year? Thu, 26 May 2011 10:46:10 EST Lockout I suspect we are all very unhappy with what has been going on with the lockout I am wondering if the season will ever start. I am sure Danny Boy is one of the owners who is supporting the lock out 100% After all what does he have to lose Wed, 18 May 2011 08:25:12 EST New Quarterback Am not a happy camper to come back into town and find out we will be having a new quarterback for the Dallas Game. Does our coach and those others in decision making really think this is the wisest thing to do. I almost think this is as dumb as having a BINGO caller call the plays. Oh well tomorrow will wear my lucky Skins shirt and yell beat Dallas.

Fri, 15 Oct 2010 23:15:24 EST New Skins vs the Old team Not a good game While thought they looked pretty good last week but then again they still lost. This week I thought they did not do well at all. Next week will definitely be a big test 2 scrambling quarterbacks Mon, 27 Sep 2010 05:57:12 EST New Era It wasn't when McNabb became a Redskin that I thought it might be a new era, but when the NFL network showed a highlight of the Redskin offensive line in the name of Trent Edwards, then I knew. Yep, new era. Fri, 17 Sep 2010 20:18:19 EST New Year! New Players! So what is everyones thoughts on the up and coming 2010 season? Wed, 25 Aug 2010 17:04:49 EST Haynesworth Thought the problem was solved but after the interview on Saturday it's like a bad penny and won't go away. Sally Jenkin's column in today's Post Haynesworth should learn from Shanahan's Past is a must read. Wonder if Haynesworth will read it <em>224</em> Mon, 23 Aug 2010 11:18:39 EST Last night's game Skins 42 Bills 17...IMPRESSIVE!!! HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALIKIN' ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!! <em>281</em> <em>321</em> Sat, 14 Aug 2010 08:57:40 EST What are you looking to see tonight Finally we start to see how things are starting to go. <BR> Be interesting to see how McNabb and the front line does as well as the new defensive scheme Fri, 13 Aug 2010 18:17:37 EST Russ Grimm Isn't it great to see a hog finally make it into the Hall of Fame. Like many I sure did love those Hogs and where would they have been with out Bugel He to deserves to be in the hall as does the rest from those glory days <em>224</em> <BR> Louise Sat, 7 Aug 2010 07:12:43 EST Albert Haynesworth I hope the Redskins fine Haynesworth for every mandatory practice he misses. He is not a team player and cares about no one but himself. After reading about him in today's Washington Post, I do think he has a point in that Daniel Snyder probably promised him things that they are not living up to. That being said, I still don't like his attitude. He will be a problem for us until we get rid of him. Wed, 16 Jun 2010 13:13:21 EST 2010 Draft What do you think? <BR> <BR> From <BR> <BR> Round 1/4 -- Trent Williams, OT, 6-5, 315, Oklahoma: Williams wowed the Redskins with his athleticism. He ran a 4.81-second 40-yard dash at the scouting combine -- second-fastest of any lineman -- although Shanahan insisted that he paid more attention to Williams' game film. Ironically, Williams struggled during his senior season, his only one at left tackle. He switched to the left after playing three years on the right, and thus i... Mon, 26 Apr 2010 12:04:11 EST IT'S FOOTBALL SEASON ALL YEAR 'ROUND IN OUR HOUSE! Greetings to my Hog Nation Family!! <BR> <BR> Just joined SP at the end of January 2010 and I'm down 10 lbs. so far, not bad at all. I'm a Washington DC native and a life long Redskins fan (check out my page if ya don't believe me). The hubs is a Philly native and as such he's an Eagles fan. Ok, fine. I can deal with that, but I must say that it gets pretty violent in our house during the NFC East Conference games but nobody has been sent to the hospital (yet). Got love for my team in good, ... Fri, 26 Mar 2010 14:48:44 EST Cleaning House Good, bad, or indifferent, the redskins are cleaning house. Got to be good in the long run, because the team had gotten too old and were not going to go anywhere. Here's wishing us much success in rebuilding the team. <BR> <BR> <em>281</em> Fri, 5 Mar 2010 11:15:24 EST Skins fan relocated to Pathers Territory Hi ya'll! I just recently about 6 months ago joined SP and got active about 4 weeks ago! I have been a Skins fan all my life. I recently moved to NC to be with my husband, who is also a HUGE Skins fan! Tue, 23 Feb 2010 09:52:31 EST What Do You Think of Shanahan? What does everyone think of Mike Shanahan as a coach? I personally am excited to see what happens. From what I read, he is a strong believer in a good offensive line. I have thought for years that that has been the Skin's biggest offensive problem, not having an outstanding o-line with good depth. Go Skins!!! Wed, 13 Jan 2010 15:31:22 EST New Member I am thrilled that this group exists! I am a die hard, life long Skins Fan! I spent many young years watching them practice in Carlisle. When I got a little older I shared a few beers with many of the greats! I am excited to share comments and stories with other fans. <BR> Jeanette Tue, 5 Jan 2010 19:54:54 EST New to the Team! Hi Everyone! <BR> I have been a lifelong Redskins fan. I have never lived near Maryland, but I try to see every game I can. My favorite game I saw in person was the last game of the season 2 years ago where we beat the Cowboys. I still bring that up to my friends who are Cowboys fans. Let's hope next season is a good one! Thu, 31 Dec 2009 13:22:47 EST Season 2009 Hey all you Redskins fans out there! Just wanted your take on the season so far! I am going to do this after each game. <BR> <BR> 1-2 is not a great start and losing to the Lions was embrassing, but on a postive note at least we are not 0-3! The offense needs a lot and I mean a lot of work, the only realy bright spot I saw was Santana Moss! <BR> <BR> That is my little take on things, I would like to hear other peoples insights on things. Football or Spark or if you just want to rant a... Mon, 28 Sep 2009 08:09:38 EST Preseason I was impressed that the Skins kept up with the Patriots scoring. It's too bad Colt Brennan threw the the interception in the 4th. We could have won the game. Sun, 30 Aug 2009 10:31:34 EST Attending Any Games This Year? I will be going to the game against Dallas in Dallas. Anyone else attending any Redskin games this year? Mon, 29 Jun 2009 15:27:15 EST Haynesworth Saw a clip on NFL network with Santana Moss and Deanglo Hall. The buzz is The D is excited about what Haynesworth is going to bring next season. I can't wait. Thu, 25 Jun 2009 10:52:35 EST "Clinton Portis" determined Sometimes I write on my sparkpage that I'm "Clinton Portis" determined. It means I'm gonna give 110% to break through that line and get to where I wanna go. Yeah, I like that. Tue, 2 Jun 2009 13:27:55 EST Jason Campbell How do you think Jason Campbell will do this year? <BR> <BR> I think despite all of the distractions, I think JC will do well this year. I was impressed to hear about the relationship he has with Coach Zorn. Zorn told Campbell that he was going to extremely critical of his play because he wanted him to be a premier QB in this league. And I think JC has bought in. Fri, 29 May 2009 12:18:11 EST Draft? Just a quick question to all you fine Redskins out there! What did you think of the draft! Sound off! Like to hear what you think! Mon, 11 May 2009 11:49:13 EST Hello Been a skins fan since I was a kid! Glad there are others out there...we have a lot of Skins Haters!

Sat, 1 Nov 2008 23:02:22 EST Rest of the season ??? Okay we beat Dallas in Dallas, what do you think this means for the rest of the season? <BR> <BR> Are we going to win Sunday against the Eagles (last in the NFC east)? <BR> Will we make the playoffs? <BR> Will we beat NY when we face them again in November? <BR> <BR> Tue, 30 Sep 2008 09:24:27 EST Will we beat Dallas? What do we have to do to beat Dallas? <BR> <BR> We all want it to be. There are too many people in the D. C. area who have never seen Texas or have no connection to it, but still root for the Cowbows. We need to make them into Washington fans. Fight for old D. C.

Sat, 19 Jul 2008 23:42:21 EST Skins Fan In Eagles Territory Yes that is right. I am a redskins fan in a family that growing up all loved the Eagles, maybe thats why I went away from them. Anyway, I have been a skins fan since I was about 5 and can't wait for them to start another season. just introducing myself to everyone because I just joined this group today. Wed, 16 Jul 2008 12:25:47 EST Skins fan in SD I'm Tabby, currently located in lovely San Diego but grew up in the eastern panhandle of WV. I've been a skins fan as long as I can remember. <BR> <BR> I'm currently in a weight loss bet with 2 Cowboy fans (co-workers) once the bet wraps on 7/1 and I will they'll be shopping for Skins apparel for my winnings. <BR> Not only will I get the thrill of winning against 2 male coworkers but an even larger thrill from the Cowboys fans buying Redskins gear!!! I LOVE IT!!! <BR> Mon, 2 Jun 2008 01:17:58 EST Art Monk What is it going to take to get him elected to the Pro Football H.O.F. Is there anyone more deserving? <BR> His stats were comparable to Michael Irvin's, yet they picked Irvin. Monk was always the good citizen, he stayed out of trouble did not get caught with cocaine. So why Irvin and not Art? He was not as flamboyent, but he got the job done. Hopefully this will be his year. Fri, 1 Feb 2008 12:23:30 EST Meeks or Fassel? Well, it appears to me to be a race of two.

He still watches every game on TV.
