    Reminds me of all of those threads that want us to sign high priced free agents, make outlandish trades and suggest that we have drafted the wrong guys..i.e. trading up for a higher priced player. I will take the way we do business anyday.

    Wow, what a scathing piece on Gregg Williams.

    yes..the media is always *for* players criticizing the coaches which has become the norm of the game these days...players saying they got outcoached and then claiming players make a team better not the scheme.

    I'm no Redskins fan, but *what a hit piece*. Almost completely based on the mouthings of a single player who won't say anything on the record.

    Notice the 'balancing' (and contradictory) information from the team and a player WHO WENT ON THE RECORD are buried in the 30th paragraph. Classic hallmark of slanted journalism.

    Hey, CBS is still looking for a Dan Rather replacement.

    Agreed. But it does look like a ship that is lost and sinking. I love that comment about needing players - not just schemes. Funny.

    I remember Shannon Sharp talking about the decline of the Patriots and using those same phrases. He stated that the Pats coaches had gotten too arrogant and did not understand that players win games, not coaches. If you realize what the Patriots mean to organized sports, some players should be afraid, very afraid.

    I don't think it takes too much of an imagination to see some parellels with the Pats - or at least some lessons for them.

    They trade most of their draft picks away, have F.A.'s with huge contracts on the scout team, have players complaining the team sucks because they're not allowed to free lance and have players that think the coaches are arrogant because they actually want to coach the team.

    Yeah, just like us. LOL:D

    Perfectly put.

    The only apparent similarity is a hostile and incompetent media.
