hess, the bigger issue is the people such as yourself who come up here and complain EVERY FRIGGIN day about Snyder.

let me know if you're not getting this...

greg, I stopped at the beginning of the season with snyder unless he was the topic of discussion. he's been the topic of some posters here this week, but I've stayed away from it for the most part. my post this morning has nothing to do with snyder, rather, it's the folks that b!tch about the folks who b!tch that's getting old.

you my friend have alot of room to talk with your whinning about the coaching staff day in and day out. I've addressed you with posts that have nothing to do with snyder and everything to do about football. I haven't even commented about your baseball and basketball post on a football board, not to mention they're out of town teams. look in the mirror and stop your whinning and maybe we can have some decent dialog. thanks in advance.

let me know if you're not getting this...

and that answer would be, based on the above post, a resounding no....

What a FIRST class waste of time analyzing former players...count on a statistical analysis for Jason Campbell, Marko Mitchell, and LaVar Arrington in the coming days...

Oh nonsense. While it's far too much detail for my taste, the article points up something more significant than mere punting stats. By indicating that Hunter's punting performance is no reason to dismiss him it focuses the spotlight on those who dismissed him.

Plus the fact that unlike those who dodge responsibility like Haynesworth, Hunter stepped up, threw himself on a grenade for the kids and was rewarded with dismissal.

Please understand that it is not that I don’t welcome a healthy exchange of viewpoints

'Healthy exchange of ideas...?': therein lies your first mistake.

And what's this noise about 'ideas'?

This place ain't some liberal democracy.

Intellectual curiosity comes here to die.

RI is the STD of all the WaPo Sports Blogs.

This place is kinda like a gloryhole where a keyboard does all the sex which is why you should wear latex gloves as you type.

Former gay-hating senator Larry Craig comes here to vent when he's not frequenting airport bathrooms looking for male love in what obviously is a wrong place.

Men yell, praise, congratulate, and hate each other as they'll never see the other guy.

So post whatever you want.

Remember that there's no guarantee anyone will read your stuff.

But anyone who posts in here just to build readers or accrue cheap fame isn't healthy.

Which is why I'm the sickest kid on this block.

i got it greg, you accused me of b!tching about snyder and I wasn't. go back and look at the post for today. you're the one that mentioned his name. you're as sharp as a marble.

also, if you're b!tching non-stop everyday about poor coaching and not playing youth then I suggest you not criticize anyone for beating dead horses.

On the other hand, b1tching about the folks that b1tch about the folks who b1tch is always fresh!

One thing that never gets old: Boycott $nyder!

Football Insider: Trying to stay out of the basement

Even if we beat the cowboys, the jags and jints will both be very tough teams to face.

The jags and jints will be jockeying for playoff space and will do everything possible to beat the skins back into the NFC East basement.

Is a three year run at the bottom of the NFC East likely?: I'd say, 'yes'.

Love how some media jerk floats a rumor (sorry for the misspelling redcoat)that Rex might start this week. Shanahan does not address this rumor with the media, then Shanahan gets accused of piling on more disrespect on McNabb.

Sure Shanahan has made some dumb moves... but F the national media!

And F dallas!

I'm not expecting much but you never know. F Dallas. Go Skins, there are a few classy Redskins worth pulling for even if the organization overall by every law natural and otherwise should lose this game and probably will.

If we win Sunday, we're two games ahead of D*ll*s, with two to go and the tiebreak in our favour.

So win, and we can't be bottom of the division.

Either way - F - D*ll*s.

I hate the effen cowgirls but they're a way better team than we are right now. And better coached. Garrett is a smart young guy. Look how the team has played since Wade left. I think we're in a lot of trouble with this game. A couple of bright spots in Orakpo ( who is stuck on a horrendous defense ) and Torain ( who somehow rips runs behind an O line that would be on a practice squad on most teams..) Shanny only won with Elway. After he left, so did all the wins. Lil Shanny hasn't won with anybody. It was another bad choice by Snyder. Should have waited another year for Cowher or Gruden and given them complete control and stay out of their way. We'd be in the playoffs within a couple years. Shanny is talking about starting Grossman......I rest my case.

Mr. Reid: You need to get your facts straight. The Redskins are not making a trip to Dallas; they will play on Sunday in ARLINGTON, TEXAS. Their plane will land at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport which is not even in the same county as Dallas--it is in the same county as Fort Worth. Dallas is not the center of the universe. That city has never built a stadium for the team that bears its name--they were in Irving, Texas and they are now in Arlington, Texas. Stop giving Dallas credit since they are due none!
