Didn't like the Skins when the Colts were in town, well, still don't. Gibbs, good coach (hall of famer), can't do worse than his predecessor, but in the years since his absence, might the game have changed a bit. Free agency, salary caps, you can't keep a "team" together very long any more due to money.
Be like us Baltimore fans after the Super Bowl, we lost a lot of players due to the $$$ thing, and we were happy to hope for a 500 record. It was nice getting back to the playoffs, but we knew, no quarterback, bunch of youguns, this year again, playoffs there would only be a slight chance (none if Pittsburgh was the Steelers of expectation) and we exceeded our hopes (again, thanks to the likes of Pitt, Cleveland).
Personally, Joe is a class act, and as much as I hate to admit, I wish him and you guys the best, I just think the "game" has changed.
If anything the competition will get better in the NFC East for the Birds. It will be different having to worry about the Skins again! I'm glad for the fans that they will have something to look forward to in '04.
The redskins have LOADS of talent and just
needed a coach with some discipline to come
in and lead the way. Dallas is rebuilding but
cannot go to the next level with the current
quarterback and Philly has been a let down
in the playoffs for three straight years, and
have yet to reach their potential. I expect
Washington to compete for the top spot
next season, and have a breakout year
I have been a skins fan longer than some of you are old. It was hard to take when they got Deon and even worse with Spurrier. I never liked either one of those guys with their attitudes. At the very least we now have gotten back to people with some class. We will have to wait and see if it helps in the wins, but I bet it will.
They do have some talent to build on. IMHO
I've been around long enough to remember Dandy Don and the Cowboy teams of old. They were very good and gave the Packers all they wanted. I remember the Ice Bowl. The Redskins were 2 people Sonny J. and Charlie T. Rough times. Until Joe Gibbs showed up, there was only a glimmer of hope (Over the hill gang) which did not last at all. I hope the rivalry with the Cowboys will provide some great games for us all! (I also recall a 1-15 season that the Skins so graciously provided the single victory) With all of the new coaching changes, this year looks like one for all fans to cheer about!
