Disgruntled Skins Fan on Route 123

I heard this guy on the radio last night claiming he was going to head out to Route 123 today, with a sign urging Mister Snyder to sell the Skins. While this guy seemed to have excellent potential in the self-promotion department, he failed to identify the exact location of his protest. Thus depriving him of at least one blogger for company and free publicity today.

Anyhow, if anyone has seen this man in the past or sees this man in the future, could you please let me know where exactly he is? Or, frankly, if you see any other disgruntled fans hanging around town with disgruntled signs, could you also let me know? Unsilent Majority need not apply.

Isn't "Disgruntled Skins Fan" redundant?

Are there any "Euphoric Skins Fans"? "Pleased Skins Fans"? "Moderately Happy Skins Fans"?

I'm an ecstatic Redskins fan after watching JC. I already knew the rest of the team wasn't looking so hot.

If you find out where this guy is hanging out let me know, i've got a rock with his name on it.

Snyder is a true Redskin fan with unabashedly deep pockets, but that's it. The sign should read "Swallow your pride and just hire a GM already." Not sure how well that fits on a posterboard, though.

It has become absolutely amazing how
bad washington's defense has become in one
year and I blame Greg Williams for all of it. In every game this season the skins
have been burned by quick slants because
of ineffective blitz packages. Why does Mr Williams continue to blitz the safeties
from outside the defensive ends where they
have no chance of getting to the q-back?
Why is he blitzing when he knows the corners can't handle one on one coverage.
We have lost several games because he seems
to be ignoring the obvious.

My other complaint against Williams is
that he apparently is not good at selecting
or keeping good talent. Look at the players he has chased away. LB Antonio
Pierce, LB Levar Arrington, CB Champ Baily,
CB Fred Smoot and S Ryan Clark. They have all been replaced with lame players with the exception of Shaun Springs.
His free agent signings are totally
unproductive. It seems to me that he wants players that are willing to kiss his his ring and that's all that matters to him.

All those ballers he let go trully wanted to stay and now we have the 30th ranked defense in the NFL. We are left with sorry players like LB Warrick Holdman who hasn't stopped a weak side run since he's been here. They wasted millions for Archuleta at Greg's request and now he is benched for his lack of performance. Carlos Rogers can't cover a pot. Andre Carter can't sack himself. Greg's boy,
Sean Taylor has become a liability because
of penalties and lack of coverage skills.

Maybe Greg is intentially sabatoging the defense to get out of his contract. I say let him go and get someone who is not just focused on playing mind games with the players. That's why he lost the players confidence in Buffalo and why he is loosing it now. Ask the defensive players how they feel about how Williams is running or should I say ruining things in Washington. At this point, as a fan,
I have no confidence in Williams and neither should Snyder or Gibbs. He certainly should not be considered to take
Gibbs place should he retire again. If
you think we are watching mediocre play now, imagine if he controlled both sides of the ball. Greg needs to go now and take those sorry boot lickers with him.

A fan who expects more.

Ron is right on target - Williams continues to disappoint. The talent he has let go is amazing, and Archuleta is just the latest. What a lame coach, Archuleta is not to blame for this miserable play. Williams, Gibbs, Snyder - the whole crew.
