Hey guys, I am Gary from HogsHaven, SBN's Redskins site. Wanted to get something up here before the game for you guys to ask us some questions or share with us in our shared misery. Not sure what to update you guys on other than the fans.
There are really only about 3 kinds of Skins fans you will run into right now. Type 1 is the "All Hope is Gone" Skins fan. You won't run into many of these right now as the Skins are on the down-swing. These are the casual fans that can't tell you who #20 is but still watch and pretend to know what's going wrong. Type 2 is the "Time to Clean House....Again" Skins fan. These are the ones clamoring for the Shannahan's and their master plan to be run out of town so we can start fresh....yet again. These are the guys that will only tell you what's wrong with the team but also can't give you a plan of how to really fix it while using just big names and not big words. Type 3 is the "There's Always Next Year" Skins fan. These are mostly whom you will be dealing with on here at this point in the season. These are, IMO, the most "true" Skins fans but also contains some of the most delusional (I may be included in that discussion). We are the ones already watching college games looking at one of our next QBs. We are the ones already mocking drafts and pre-ordering "Insert your name here" (Luck, Barkley, Griffin III, or Jones) custom jerseys.
I see a lot of parallels in our teams right now. Both seem to have some talent, but depth and QB play are issues. Lynch seems to have been re-born as of late, but I feel part of it is because this is a contract year for him if I am not mistaken. As far as your QB, I will say I admire his play with the pec injury up to this point. He has been there and even though his play is less than adequate to put wins up, he's a competitor and could be a lot worse. We are saddled with Gross Rexman and John Beck. I am not even sure how to follow that last sentence. Moving on......your defense seems to step up at times. I would expect Chancellor to get himself an INT at some point in this game. Our defense is strong, but our offense's inconsistencies put too much pressure on our D. If we lose, it won't be by much and this game is going to be plain ole' ugly.
I do want to start this off with a question and a polar-opposite poll! Who is the biggest surprise player and biggest surprise rookie for you guys this year?
**Please rec this so it stays up top....at least until after Monday**
