At least that last thread was short lived...who the hell needs a subplot for EVERY NFL game? Dallas, Philly, and NYG weeks need no steenking subplots!

zjfr2,

Nobody could ever accuse us of being the same guy...two posts at exactly the same time!

A thought I just had:

Why is that everyone hates the damn Washington Redskins? I don't f'n get it. The national media, the f'n LOCAL media, the people who LIVE and WORK in this area.

Seriously, I don't get it. I'm tired of running into all these damn Cowboy fans in the D.C. area. What's sad is that if you go to any other football markets, there appears to be unwavering loyalty to their respected NFL team.

As for the Dallas fans in the DMV, to me they're the worst. I hate hearing the same ol' sorry ass excuses of why they like the Cowboys as opposed to the Redskins. Here are a couple that come off the top of my head:

1) "I hate how they did Doug Williams" (Most commonly used amongst black folks. I don't remember Doug Williams. The only thing I've ever seen of him was SB highlights. Ever. This should tell you something. Besides, wasn't a bunch of replacement players used that season? My people, get f'n perspective!)

2) "I didn't like their owner, Marshall from a few years back"
(Are you f'n kidding me? George Preston Marshall was a bigot and racist, but that was freakin' eons ago)

3) "I hate Dan Snyder"
(Okay, I can sort of agree with this one. But I can't let an owner dictate if I like a team or not)

4) "The Redskins are sorry"
(To me this is the response that makes me want to beat the dogshti out of someone. Usually this statement is made by some jerk-off Dallas-but-living-in-the-DMV fan. It's like people that live around here and cheer for the Cowboys have some sort of inferority complex. If they cheer for a team that doesn't win often, then somehow they'll feel inferior. To me that spells insecutity and weakness.

The only reason why people like the Cowboys from this area is b/c they suck. They are tools that like to piss everyone else off.

How can you be a fan of the Cowboys and you live in DC?

That's like saying you live in China but don't like that dank Kung Pao!

Im obviously a Redskins fan and would do nothing to deminish a superbowl but D Williams sucked. We had a crazy 2nd quarter scored 5 td against denver that quarter schocked them and won the game. he only played part of the season he started out as jay Schroder backup. He was the QB for one of the worst teams in NFL history with those nasty uniformed Tampa Bay Suckaneers. Anyways that got me going but F*uck Dallas.

I'm with you. I think it stems from the area being a clusterfudge of outsiders and transplants who already have other allegiances. Some of the things you touched on tend to apply to folks who sold out to Dallas despite being born and raised in Redskin territory.

Places like Green Bay and Pittsburgh have folks who were born and raised there, and therefore it's heresy for them to root for anyone else. It's in the fiber of their communities and their being. You don't have that kind of thing in D.C. because being different is both accepted and celebrated.

I moved to central PA and since there's no NFL team here, the area is a mix of Skins, Ravens, Steelers and Eagles fans. All within 2 hours from here and none can lay claim to the territory. Not a bad set up at all.

Alex, do you live in the DC area? How many Dallas fans do you know?

I really don't get it. The Redskins are sort of forced down your throat if you live and grew up around here. TV, radio, newspaper. You're almost force to like them. Forbes (I think) made a list of the most loyal fanbases. Washington came third behind Pittsburgh and Green Bay. I didn't see DALLAS or the Patroits any where on that list of the top 10. It's not like the Redskins haven't been good in decades like the Lions. This team won a super bowl in 1991 and two in the '80s. There is a rich tradition with this football team. I became a fan mostly because majority of my family are Redskins fans, but I have a couple that are Dallas, Philly, and NY fans. I grew up around here and the first super bowl I was able to comprehend what the hell was going on was in 1991.

'Skins for life!

OK, as long as we both understand that your opinion isn't coherent.

Look, I'm not trying to bludgeon you or the issue too badly. But let's take the Pats, Colts and Chargers. I think there is a simple explanation for why these franchises are on top. It has less to do with ownership/management and more to do with winning the "player lottery". The Pats won the lottery with Tom Brady - before that they were crap. The Chargers won the lottery with LT - before him they had a good defense, but their offense was crap. The Colts won the lottery with Peyton Manning - before that they were crap. All of those franchises sport marquee centerpiece players who are breaking NFL records. Everyone is trying to get their hands on one of those guys out of the draft, but the truth is no one really knows who they will be; but if you get one and don't screw it up, you will be hailed a genius and a "model" owner.

Heck, the Eagles have been THE dominant team of the NFC this decade. Who did they win the "lottery" with? McNabb? He's not even in comparison. And they win even when McNabb goes down (see AJ Feeley and Jeff Garcia).

The Steelers have been consistently good for nearly 15 years or so (with a couple years of subpar performances). Who did they win the lottery with? Roethlisberger? He's solid, but no Manning, LT, or Brady. And they had great teams before him.

Jeff Fisher has had successful teams for a long time, whether he's in "rebuilding" mode or not. He won with Steve McNair and he won with a young Vince Young. He certainly hasn't hit the "lottery", yet he consistently has playoff contenders.

Your sample of 3 franchises winning the "lottery" does not exemplify every well-run franchise in the league.

Posted by: psps23 | September 11, 2008 10:37 AM

First, my "sample" of those 3 franchises were based on the 3 "samples" that Skinz threw out there in his post. And no, those 3 franchises do not exemplify every "well-run" franchise in the league.

But my point is that, generally speaking, "well-run" franchises still NEED "special" players to consistently be in the Superbowl hunt. In my book, D.McNabb is a "special player" and only actaully got to the SuperBowl when he had another "special" player (T.O.) - because all of Jeff Lurie's management magic couldn't actually put points on the board in big games. Air McNair in his prime was a "special player", other than those couple of years, the Titans are a bunch of "also-rans" along with many other NFL franchises.

I just find it funny that when a franchise starts to win consistently, they suddenly become "well-run". Bob Kraft has had the Pats since 1994 and I never heard anyone talk about how "well-run" it was until after Brady won them a couple of championships. Same with the Colts. Robert Irsay has owned the Colts their entire existence (I think), but for some reason they were praised as being "well-run" when Peyton started getting them to the playoffs.
