It's that time of year again, the holiday season is here and with the Redskins season once again finished before the month of December starts, everyone wants changes. Some people are calling for the quarterback(s) head, some want the coach gone, most people want the general manager fired, and pretty much everyone wants the owner to sell the team. It's dark times once again in Washington, and the boos, cheap tickets, and empty seats have been showing their faces at FedUp Field for over a month.
BreakingT came up with two T-shirt designs to show the frustration Washington Redskins fans are feeling this season earlier this week. The people have spoken, and after almost 1100 votes, we have a winning design that will be available immediately. My favorite of the two, and a simple message that plays off of one of Snyder's biggest sponsors/supporters/co-owners: FedUp
BreakingT has informed me that if your order is placed by the morning of Monday, December 22, your shirt should arrive in time for Christmas. What better way to celebrate the holidays? And if you don't get your orders in on time for Christmas, Black Monday is only four short days after Christmas this year. Take joy in wearing your new FedUp shirt on the day when at least one of the coaches you blame for the Redskins misfortune will be sent to the executioner. If we're really lucky this year, it will be an executive! Festive!
And in case you've
forgotten blacked out some of the reasons to be FedUp this year, he is your recap:
The Redskins (3-11) are lousy. No other way to say it. They've lost 19 of 22 games, a run of futility unmatched in team lore since the early 1960s. They ended last year with an eight-game losing streak and are on pace to do the same this year. Back-to-back 3-13 seasons would compare only to the 1960-61 years, when they went 1-9-2 and 1-12-1.
When Dan Snyder first emerged as a potential buyer for the team in 1999, he told The Washington Post: ''I miss winning.'' It was a fair assessment from a lifelong fan because there had been some lean years since the last of the three Super Bowl trophies was won in the early 1990s.
Snyder bought the team later that year. He's since overseen eight last-place finishes and a 107-147 record, tied for the fifth worst record in the NFL during that span. It would be fair to conclude that he still misses winning.
After Sunday's loss to the Giant's ESPN's John Keim wrote this:
Whether or not Dan Snyder makes changes in the front office and whether or not he puts someone other than Bruce Allen in charge of the football side, it won't change the simple fact that this organization must do a better job. Goodness, how can this team accept what's going on? Do they realize how far removed they are from being a good organization? In five of the last six years they've lost 12, 10, 11, 13 and now 11 games -- with two remaining.And the national media will always add to a Dan Snyder dumpster fire...
The Redskins lost 53 games from 1981-91. They have lost 63 games in the last six years combined. And that's with a division title that interrupted the last-place finishes. From 1971-92, the Redskins had one double-digit loss season. They've had 12 from 1993-2014. And of those 12, five have occurred since 2008. It's not working and it's not getting any better.
