The shadow of the past persistently hovers over the Redskins

There are 1 comment on the The Washington Post story from Dec 28, 2009, titled The shadow of the past persistently hovers over the Redskins. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

Two years after Joe Gibbs's first retirement, the Redskins did not win a single division game. Two years after his second retirement, 0-for-the-NFC East has been embarrassingly repeated.

Symmetry never said more.

For all the good public relations and 'fought-our-guts-out' truisms Joe Jackson Gibbs brought from 2004-2007, a hangover of epic proportion always follows. The great leader steps aside and those promoted too soon, or too often, get found out. Chaos ensues, and the legend of St. Joe grows.

I am even a little sorry for Big Dan. How do you rebuild a totally dysfunctional team in 6 months. We have no QB, no RB, no OL, a glimmer of hope at receiver, a fairly good D with a marginal secondary in the area of tackling and getting fooled on double moves EVERY TIME. It will be a multi year endeavor, but anything is better than another year like this. I have never been more disappointed in any team college or pros than this years Redskins! I don't think I can even watch them any more.
