I really don't care! I hope we learn from this and get better from this point on, this was a good learning experience as we had been lucky to beat Arizona the previous week, our offense needs to pick it up.
As a fan of the skins for 20+ years, win or lose, 0-16 or 16-0, a good owner or some jackaZZZ named Dan Snyder, I'll always be a 'Skins fan. Redskins for Life, win or lose!
sorry for your lose, loser

Nobody likes a bully...hmmm This is a football forum...yes? Let's listen to this stupidity again just for reverberation..."Nobody likes a Bully"...Apparently you have been following tennis, golf, possibly polo...? You may need to be reminded that football is a bully game...your own words are odd to say the least.
It is you who do not understand professional sports. It is called ethics. If you think it does not exist in football, then you have never played the game for any significant time. Maybe "bully" was a poor choice of words for him to use, but if you did not see the point he makes, something is wrong with you.
In 1987, leading Dallas 30-20 with 1:15 left in the game (Cowboys had no timeouts, Eagles had the ball on Dallas 25), Buddy Ryan instructed Randall Cunningham to take a knee twice, and on 3rd down, to fake the kneel down and throw a pass to Mike Quick. The pass was incomplete, but drew a pass-interference penalty resulting in Philly getting the ball on the 1 yd line. Keith Byars ran the ball in on the next play with only :10 remaining. Wade Phillips, then defensive coordinator for Buddy Ryan, called this the most embarassed he has ever been in professional coaching. Even the Eagles' players (who hate Dallas) said afterward(years later, of course)that it was wrong. Is this who Belichek wants his ethics to be associated with? Apparently. Ryan also paid a bounty for a punter to be taken out of the game at one time. Belichek is an outed cheater in his own right. And what do you know, both like to run up the score unnecessarily. Hmmm... Character issues-anyone?

# John Fox, Carolina Panthers: &#65533;Typically in this league when you have the game in hand you do call off the dogs a little bit but not to the point where you could lose the game. You never can relax too much.&#65533;

# Jack Del Rio, Jacksonville Jaguars: &#65533;You play to win. If you can score, score. Your job, as a defense, as an opponent, is to slow them down. Offensively you want to score. Obviously, late in the fourth quarter you&#65533;re going to make sure your starters don&#65533;t get hurt and things like that going forward but you still keep playing football.&#65533;

# Herm Edwards, Kansas City Chiefs: &#65533;I just think that obviously [the Patriots] are going at a pace right now, they&#65533;re just playing. They&#65533;re having fun playing football. You&#65533;re caught in a bad situation there when you have a lead like that. All coaches have been in that situation. Sometimes you&#65533;ve been the guy that had the lead and sometimes you&#65533;ve been the guy on the other side of it. And that&#65533;s what&#65533;s great about athletics. People always look into things, trying to figure out is there something that he&#65533;s trying to do or say. The coach that is winning, does he run the ball on fourth down or does he pass the ball on fourth down? I don&#65533;t know what to tell you. It&#65533;s just one of those deals. There&#65533;s a lot being made out of things and at the end I think the thing you&#65533;ve got to realize is this. You&#65533;ve got a team that is playing very very good, setting all kinds of record. When I watch those guys play, they&#65533;re having fun. They&#65533;re just having fun playing football.&#65533;

# Brad Childress, Minnesota Vikings: &#65533;You&#65533;re talking about the Washington Redskins and one of the highest paid coaches in the National Football League and a staff full of head coaches and they&#65533;re coaching, too. Games can get left-handed like that, unfortunately, and New England has a way of making you be left-handed.&#65533;

# Lane Kiffin, Oakland Raiders: &#65533;Coach Gibbs, I believe, said he had no issues with it. It&#65533;s so hard to win and so hard to score I don&#65533;t think that there really is running up the score. You&#65533;re just playing your players and trying to get better. In this league your backups do have so few opportunities to play that, from my perspective, if we were ever in that situation we would definitely run plays and put in some of our younger guys that otherwise don&#65533;t play.&#65533;

# Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers: &#65533;We&#65533;re responsible for keeping their score down. They aren&#65533;t. That&#65533;s just being competitive. That&#65533;s what this game is about. That&#65533;s what any game is about. I have no comment or opposition to them ringing up as many points as they&#65533;re capable of.&#65533;

What is your problem? hehe..hehe.. And you are a winner??!! The Ravens SUCK! How many championships have you had? Your team hasn't even been around that long thanks to the "Cleveland Browns".

Now, stop talking, if you have nothing intelligent to say, then just keep your pie hole SHUT. LOSER!

I think this guy "Redskins For Life" is a troll who goes to all the websites trying to stir things up...be wary of him...he seems a little cowardly.

I agree. And what these guys do in their personal lives off the field is no body's business. Coach Belichick doesn't need any friends if they are going to be jealous of the Pats. Go Pats!!!!!!!!

Like Bill Cowher said, it is only a matter of time before someone takes a cheap shot at Brady if they keep up the unnecessary running up of the score...Let's see what Belicheat can do with Matt Cassell!

Teams had more brains than this. Why? Because you will met them next year, and I garantee you the key players of the teams that would try to make a cheap shot on Brady would see an early end of their carrier. Don't you think Patriots would systematicly hunt them down? It is better not to risk it for anyone. If this would be done by an AFC team, it would be a complete suicide from them.

For example, even if Colts would dare to make a cheap shot on Brady, they will face Pats in the play offs, but latest next year in Gilette. It would be a painful carrier ending for Peyton. And perhaps Harrison, Wayne and Addai.

My original question on this subject was why did the Redskins not do this. They are not an AFC team. If Brady goes down like that, as Cowher agrees with me that he might should Belicheat continue his unethical score running, it will be the fault of Belicheat--no one else.

Unethical? I'm confused. Excuse me: if I would have my paycheck with millions of dollars, and my job would be to stop the offense of the other team, the last thing would be to blame the oppenent because I am not capable to do my job.
