So much thanks to Will for everything he's done for this blog. I appreciate the opportunity to pick up from here. To give you a brief background on us, Ken (sugar) and I (ebag) will be providing you with everything fit to print for the Skins.  Ken has been a Skins season ticket holder for 10 years, and I have been picking up his extra ticket for the last five. Last season started off strong with an 8-person road trip to Canton for the Monk/Green Hall of Fame inductions. We also made the trip up I-95 for the Ravens game, and I happened to be in San Fran for the Skins/Niners game.   We created the Ahern Inquirer 2+ years ago, and have moved here full-time for to cover the Redskins. Having said that, here's what you can expect from us:

 

ebag - I like to post a lot of articles based on stats. When I make opinions, I like to have facts to back them up (unlike Jason La Canfora and sugar). I am generally very critical of the Skins office given our history of signings and draft picks. I also like to cover what the players do off-field since I see them out quite often living in Chinatown.  I welcome all criticism as I don't claim to be omniscient, just opinionated.

sugar -  I can best describe myself—especially in terms of what kind of fan I am—as delusionally optimistic. Some things to know about where I stand: I believe the game is won and lost on the line of scrimmage and that is precisely where we are losing our games (stunner); I believe in using the words ‘we’ and ‘us’ when talking about my team; I stopped making excuses for Snyder and Cerrato in 2004; I believe Clinton Portis is going to the Hall of Fame; I forgave Champ Bailey for leaving the team 2 seconds after he left; I believe JC is our man at QB; Jim Zorn has all the makings to be a coach in this league for a heck of a long time, and I sure hope it is here. I’ll be serving up some fresh Kool-Aid regularly and ebag will be regularly harassing me for it.
