Quick links: Skins criticism

After a disappointing and unimpressive 2-3 start to open the season, the Redskins are seemingly under attack from all angles: fans, former players, media, etc. Here are a few examples:
  • John Riggins: "You know what they used to say about the Washington Senators, they're now gonna say about the Washington football team, which is First in war, first in peace, LAST in the NFC East. I'm afraid that's the way it is." [D.C. Sports Bog]

  • The Redskins' performance against the Panthers displayed all of the problems with this team. [Hogs Haven]

  • Boswell: "This is what Snyder and Cerrato deserve. They brought it on themselves. The Redskins and their fans, however, and Jim Zorn for that matter, don't deserve it. They don't deserve it at all." [Thomas Boswell]

  • Wilbon: "See, Snyder is great at the business side of the Redskins but the exact opposite when it comes to the football operations side. Football isn't instinctive to Snyder and it's never going to be, no matter how many fat checks he signs, no matter how many times he sits and stares out at practice." [Michael Wilbon]

  • John Feinstein calls for a Redskins boycott and says fans should stop going to games until things change. [D.C. Sports Bog]

  • Dave O. on what the future holds for this team: "So the question cannot be avoided: if [the Redskins are] 2-2 against terrible teams (not counting the Giants, obviously), and the two wins were by the skin of [their] teeth, and the offense is likely to get worse instead of better, what's going to happen against the NFC East, Atlanta, Denver, New Orleans, and San Diego?" Probably more losing. [Staying Medium]

  • Even current players are fed up. Carlos Rogers: "It starts not only with the players and the coaches. It starts with the ownership. They bring everybody in, and they've got last say-so of everything. So that's where it starts, I guess." [Redskins Insider]
There's a lot more where that came from, but I think you get the point. It really isn't a fun time to be a Redskins fan -- unless you're a masochist too.
