A note to my readers

I hope you all enjoyed your extended weekend. I have had an opportunity to review all of the comments on my blog and I think it's safe to say there are many differing opinions about my post topics. I am also learning that some comments are intended for me and have very little, if anything, to do with my actual post.

Regardless of why you leave comments, I am very appreciative of all of the thoughts and opinions, some more than others. If there's one thing I've learned in my life, it's that we all have different perspectives, because we all are different. I'm so glad that so many people are reading Hard Hits.

It's very flattering that you take the time to not only read my thoughts, but then post a response. It lets me know I'm doing what the Washington Post hired me to do, and that's to give you, the reader, a place and platform for your voice to be heard. I truly believe in open forums of discussion.

Whether you like me or not, I'm assuming we all have at least one thing in common if you are reading this post: We are sports fans in some capacity. So with that being said, keep the comments coming and please continue to let me know how you're feeling; I know that's what I'm going to do. Now let's all get ready for an intense week of Redskins-Cowboys coverage.

Lavar keep up the great insight. Always good to hear from a former player's unbiased perspective and true Redskin!

The stereotype of ignorant Redskins fans is that every year we buy in to the bad management decisions and just 'know' they're going to the Superbowl. I cant stand this view of us and even worse are the fans that perpetuate it. I am not that fan, and I don't want my news to come from that fan. I want the problems to be addressed and the shortcomings to be scrutinized. Keep writing on real topics that concern 'concerned' fans. You're doing a fantastic job LA.

Lavar, you do great work but it isn't consistent yet. That is to be expected though and most of your work is worth reading. Don't let the haters get you down and keep the posts coming.

I think WaPo made the right decision. You come with the knowledge and good football insight. Your blog is slowly surpassing Redskins Insider on my list of WaPo sports blogs to read.

Please, just no Albert Haynesworth posts eh?

Am honored that you read my comments from your previous posts. I'm definitely looking forward to the Redskins/Cowboys game! Mike Shanahan is going to be interesting to see since he came out of "retirement". Of course, Haynesworth will play the entire game but not start, I doubt. Maybe Shanahan wanted to keep the Cowboys relaxed and start Haynesworth just to rattle them? lol Well, we'll see on Sunday night!
