What team is slow?
I'm not talking about footwork or speed..
I'm talking about "Slow" .. Brain doesn't function like normal.. Or atleast the owner's don't..
gotta go with those DeadSkins.. .
They don't let Mcnabb ride out the season, horrible numbers, horrible oline. Mcnabb had no big shot wr. Well, Moss, but he's like 6 foot with shoes...What is Snyder doing?
Thinking Beck for starting Qb?
are you kidding me.. ?? lol please say you are..
the list goes on and on..
i think D.C. is frkn cursed.. i take back this whole argument.. Sorry D.C., great town, sports besides hockey are a shame. Trust me, i've been there. Look at my team, ATL, just now getting it poppin..

I love the Washington Redskins pick. But I'm going with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Let's start off with some 40-yard dash times:
5.16 Andrew Whitworth
5.28 Dennis Roland
5.30 Clint Boling
The week before Black Monday (aka annual coach firing day) I posted a throwdown stating that Bengal's coach Marvin Lewis deserved to be fired. No one accepted the throwdown; they claimed it was inarguable.
Why? Lewis has been in Cincinnati for eight years, accumulated a 60-67-1 (47.3%) record, and finished last season 4-12, at the bottom of the AFC North. It's obvious he's not getting the job done.
Okay, it's obvious to everyone other than Bengal's owner/general manager Mike Brown. For some odd reason Marvin Lewis is still coaching the Bengals.
Last off-season Cincinnati signed perennial cancer Terrell Owens and paired him with fellow distraction Chad Ochocinco. Someone in Cincinnati (Mike Brown) actually thought that would be a good idea.
It's gotten so bad that Carson Palmer has declared he would rather retire than play another season in Cincinnati.
MMTC - I haven't even gotten to the criminal records yet.

haha I hear yah.. Glad you could understand my rambling, UN.
nice choice for sure..
nice nice choice..
Washington has missed the playoffs in nine of the past 11 seasons under Snyder's watch. -espn.com
Skins are desperate too, man.. Yeah, Shannahan's there, but how long will he coach? I highly doubt he's stayign for the long haul.. There's a certain mystique about the Skins.. Besides the o-line being extremely horrible.. and the wr's dropping passes.. The Skins have Snyder, who gets stars past their primes, and pays them top DOLLAH.. I hope that's not the case for McNabb, but they need some holes plugged for him.. Jeebus.. Watching McNabb for most of his career, i was absolutely disappointed at his year. Anybody would be, but i did see excuses. No BIG TIME WR .. New runningback every weekend, untill Gainther let loose, and horrilbe tackling in the back field.. What the Eagles did to the Skins at home last season, was the worst embarrassment i've seen in a long while for that franchise ..
Skins are not getting the right people..
Dalton and AJ Green are plus's
man o ma

At least the Washington Redskins were able to win a playoff game (two, actually) during Dan Snyder's 11-year tenure. That's more than can be said for Cincinnati. The Bengal's haven't won a postseason game in over two decades.
Speaking of ESPN excerpts (ironic because we're arguing on a subsidiary of SI), ESPN recently ranked all 122 professional sports franchises in the big four - MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL. The Bengals ranked dead last.
If you'd rather consult a fiscal measurement, Forbes ranked the most valuable NFL teams last August:
#2 Washington Redskins
#25 Cincinnati Bengals
Snyder must be doing something right.
I'm not going to downplay Andy Dalton's potential. But he is certainly not a plus. That's forgetting why Cincinnati had to draft him.
Had the Bengal's front office managed their team better, Carson Palmer wouldn't be threatening retirement at the age of 31. Meaning, they wouldn't have had to use their early 2nd round pick on a QB. They could have used that selection on another position. So instead of improving the team with that pick, they're hoping to break even.

the Bungles vs the Deadskins
Awesome!~MIz sorry.. hahaha
Snyder must be doing something right.
the only thing Snyder could do right is quit paying the past, and runaway to a desserted island.
The Redskins fans are getting put out with the Snyder.. they've had 7 qb's in his exisistence, and ONE MAIN reason they are one of the top grossing, is because Snyder has a lot of HUGE sponserships, mainly FED EX
As of right now, the Bungles have promise.. Yes, Dalton isn't valued like he should, because Carson Palmer is trying to audition for Days of Our Lives, but they do have some weapons..
YOu hated on Dalton but what about my GA boi, AJ GREEN???
big time play maker.. rookie .. got it.. but watch his hands this season..
Redskins dont even have a wide reciever.. let alone 2, like the bungles.. Dont' forget the bull rider..
If i had to pick a team right now, i would pick the Bengals to have a better mindsight on the future..
Washington doesn't know if they should start frkn McNabb or Beck, are you **** kidding Me?
Thank God D-Hall worked out .. lmao

Better mind-sight for the future? Because of a single draft pick?
Don't forget Cincinnati has posted a 115-206-1 (35.9%) record under incumbent owner Mike Brown. And as mentioned above, the team hasn't exactly turned around during the Marvin Lewis era.
Once again, they're bringing in an unproven rookie - while losing proven star players:
For example: CB Johnathan Joseph and RB Cedric Benson are both free agents hitting the market as soon as the NFL Lockout is over. Cincinnati opted to pinch pennies rather than apply a franchise tag to either player.
Ever hear this quote before?
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"
Such as, I don't know, seeking out and signing every player you can find with a criminal record...
- Pacman Jones
- Tank Johnson
- Rey Maualuga
- Carlos Dunlap
- Odell Thurmann
- AJ Nicholson
- Quincy Wilson
- Chris Henry
- Cedric Benson
- Leon Hall
Arrested, arrested, arrested, etc.
You can't turn a team around when your roster is loaded with distractions. The Cincinnati Bengals front office is simply too "slow" (your word) to learn from their own mistakes.
