    The Eagles-2nd game-Secondary Issues

    by , 12-18-14 at 11:07 AM
    It's never a "pleasure" to visit Eagles fan boards-their fans are, to put it kindly...weird. Nasty to each other, I mean things can get "testy" here but we don't refer to each other as "Lardass" or "c*nts"-and this is posters referring to other posters-other fan board members, not even other teams fans, coaches, players or anything like that.

    It makes me want to spray hand sanitizer on my keyboard during the Recon visit. Yuck.

    It is hard to be positive about your team when your 3-10 and your head coach does not want the QB your FO gave up the farm to get, but as it is the week before Christmas we have to make the effort so I have always been told.

    Having said that perhaps I should introduce my self to the readers of this blog.

    The Giants: Game 2-Low Hanging Fruit?

    by , 12-12-14 at 02:28 AM
    The Giants are having, record wise, a year not much better than the Redskins-only one more win-and Giants fans are unhappy.

    "Low Hanging Fruit?" is the title of a thread on one of the Giants fan sites and the theme started out are the Skins a low-hanging fruit for a desperate Giants team.

    The way they've played at times and from what some of the fan comments are saying, could they be low hanging fruit for a desperate Redskins team to pick?

    Week 15 vs the New York Giants...

    I've spent the better part of the last 5 days trying to figure out how I was going to compose this little bundle of joy. There are a countless number of directions we all can go in that would not only stimulate an elephant droppings worth of heated debate, but also make some people actually re-evaluate their friendships. Do we really need to re-visit all those frustrating, drama filled, vomit inducing, ...

    The Opposite

    by , 12-08-14 at 12:03 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    "Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable. I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but I was perceptive. I always know when someone's uncomfortable at a party. It all became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I've ever made in my entire life has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have in every aspect of life, be it something to wear, something to eat... It's often ...

    The Rams: Can we pop the bubble of confidence?

    by , 12-04-14 at 07:35 PM
    There isn't a lot being said on Rams fan sites about the game-at least when compared to most teams- so thre aren't a lot of posts.

    There is a good amount of confidence, though. I guess destroying a team 52-0, even one as bad as the Raiders, can do that.


    Fortunately some are rather lengthy so there are things to read and digest.

    WE NEED A LEADER, COACH

    Damn I hate losing. I hate losing more than I love winning. The only thing I hate as bad as losing, is quitting. Cause quitting, is losing.

    My team is playing terrible. My coaches are coaching terrible. And there ain't a damned thing I can do about it. And I know it. But I will never be embarrassed to be a Redskins fan. It's part of who I am. I will not feign being done with them. The sun rises in the east again ...

  9. Solution

    by , 11-27-14 at 08:16 AM (Cake or Death?)
    No one likes a complainer. We all know them. Everyone needs to vent when they are frustrated, but eventually if you aren't offering solutions to the problems, you're just bitching. And no one likes that.

    I vented on the BGO forums yesterday. If I offended anyone, I apologize. I am still deeply frustrated by the situation with my beloved football team right now, and now I am ready to offer a solution. It's a big, risky move that Snyder would have to make, but I know it would ...

    The Colts: Quarterback draw

    by , 11-27-14 at 12:23 AM
    I remember back a few yers ago...like in 2009, when I started posting things opposing teams fans were saying about playing the Redskins-before Redskins Recon became an official part of BGO-and mostly it was ugly, contemptuous, snarky, the Redskins were a joke, we played poorly, the owner, FO, and coaching staff were under fire from everywhere, our HC gets his play-calling duties given to a bingo-caller and the team was an ongoing soap opera and and seldom did very many fans of whoever we were about ...
