These videos would be more interesting if all of the participants did a shot every time any of them said anything.

The problem with these videos is they seem like the lame-ass meetings I have to sit through at work all the time.

Name me one team in the last 20 years that has done a complete roster purge and has even sniffed the Super Bowl.

Sorry: I'm just not into trivia.

I just want to see a competitive football team.

I want the skins to be like the stillers, pats, ravens, colts, titans, giants, eagles, etc. who season in and season out, are tough teams to beat.

Teams that year in and year out are ready to make a run for a ring.

Those teams aren't frittering away draft picks on injured players or past their prime types.

Those teams don't have too many 'big name' contract guys who underperform like bad stock.

Those teams--and their fans--know that winning or 'sniffin'' the Super Bowl is the exception, not the rule.

What some of us wantedafter back to back last place redskin NFC East finishes is someone to come in, clean house, and build a competitve team.

We all have patience for the proper use of draft picks and low cost free agents.

That's how you become competitive last time I checked.

But the man from Denver chose to 'win now'.

From my memory, the Road to the Super Bowl is littered with teams trying to 'win now.'

And that road is the one the competitive teams travel confidently to get to the Super Bowl.

While the 'win now' teams lie like road kill and just get in the way.

WAPO - poorly produced TV looks just as bad on the web. This is your brand, dummies. Get it together.

Why would you post 26 minutes of this drivel?

Bad lighting, crappy tiny little $12.50 set, bad audio, clumsy start from an awkward host, zero energy.... Who do you expect to sit through this and why?

Seriously, you need to re-think this.

Any report on what hat Portis is wearing? Stories like that put sports media into perspective.

You mean the ones where everyone pretends to enjoy being around those in said meeting?

Yeah...I hate those.

I watch the Comcast ones, I can't bear to watch these.

That loud crunching sound you hear is sportswriters all over the country forcing down their crow dinner. Let's see, a reasonable contract with very little guaranteed money, and no real long term commitment. Doesn't sound like same old, same old to me. Sounds like good sound decision making by the front office. Vinny would have given away two firsts and $30M guaranteed.
Never was a big Bruce Allen fan, but he just went up a big notch in my estimation. And Shan deserves credit too, Monday night not withstanding.

Screw the set and lighting. Who needs to hear from a bald-headed geek, a failed businessman and two nobodies? With all the shti that's hit the fan recent we need as much eye candy as possible. Bring on Lindsay Czarniak in a string bikini.
