Another one lost. Not beaten, mind you, the Skins gave it away.
Jack Kent Cooke is rolling over.
We need depth. We need receivers over 6 feet. We need Sean Taylor back. We need a GM. We need an attitude. Until then...

Amen about the attitude. Seems to me, most of the players out there are there for one thing...themselves. The coach never puts it on them when they mess up. If Campbell is the leader in that locker room, that's a shame. How many veteran players do they have, and none of them step up and put the team on their shoulders? From the ownership down, it's few and far between to find any heart on this team. Just a lot of guys making excuses, looking forward to the next loss.

I love my Redskins tis true but frankly I'm tired of J Cambell being blamed for everything. Perhaps the recievers(less C Cooley) and Mr Portis should be issued velcro sticky jersies and gloves and maybe they wouldn't keep dropping the D*m ball!!!!

I believe you win as a team and you lose as a team. The sport has become all about money instead of the love of the game and loyalty. You have to want it and apparently the Skins just don't want it.

So true......but it's not about the players just being there for the money. They are just employees of the company and like most employees of a corporation, they are there for the money.
The problem is that as long us fans support a mediocre product, such as the Redskins, then the owner has no initiative to make changes. As long as we are supporting "Danny Boy's" bank account we will continue to see these lack luster performances from our players...and coaches.

Don't support the team at all until the ownership puts a winning combination of players and coaches on the field. No fan support will eventually mean no income for the owners, but the owners know that the die hard fan will keep coming back for more and more of the same. So why should they change anything? As for me, I've got better things to do on my day off than to sit in front of my TV watching mediocre entertainment for 4 hours. I'm afraid the 'Skins have lost me for yet another season........maybe next year.

Having been a loyal fan for 45 years, I've witnessed the ups and downs of this team. I sincerely think Dan Snyder and Coach Gibbs need to start holding ALL their players accountable and stop making excuses for them. Maybe it's time for some major changes around Redskin Park. I'm afraid I agree with d. green about this team having no heart. I guess it's all about the money and not the game. Pretty sad situation.

I agree...the players need to step up to the plate and take the responsibility for the losses. Yes, the coaches as well but sports(professional) has become more and more about money. If your agent goes in and demands certain $$ in the contract then damn it you better play like you love the game and not the money.

Actually the complete opposite......I've been watching this team self destruct for the past ten years......if not longer. As a true fan, I want to see some major changes in the entire organization, from the owner on down. Not only in personel, but, as stated by others here, in attitude. Entire team attitude. They need to quit kissing these player's asses and start kicking some. Since the present ownership is reluctant to make these necessary changes, I can no longer support him, and his bunch of "has been" coaching staff members.
