08:04 AM ET 11.30 | Perhaps the Redskins would play better at home if their fans were a tad more supportive. Another sub-par offensive performance brought another set of boos from their fans Sunday but it was a defensive player -- cornerback Carlos Rogers -- who expressed slight frustration Monday with a segment of vocal spectators. "Me and some of the guys were talking about that earlier," he said. "Sometimes you feel when you're at home that you're [playing] away because you get so bashed at home for any little mistake. We come to the sideline or the bench and it's cussing, it's this, it's that and we're just in the first quarter. We're like, 'Are we at home or are we away?'I think we play better away because the fans are quieter."

Don't blame McNabb, he has no weapons. And no line.

Carlos Rogers sucks... Just saying.

Try playing in Dallas dude. Bottom line is...if you suck, the fans know it and will tell you.

McNabb played in Philly so he should be able to offer tips and tricks in dealing with unruly audiences.

Washington is paradise compared to Philly.

Uh, no. Who are his weapons? The O line has been in shambles. Put Brady or Manning back there and see how they would fair back there, genius.

Its got to be frustrating.

As frustrating as the spam that the mods don't/can't/won't deal with?

C'mon mods, in the words of Bill Belichick before the SB against Philly:

DO

YOUR

JOB!!!

Agreed on that. It's been proven that even the best qb's cannot be successful when their butt is planted in the turf.

Losing = angry fans. Winning = drunk happy fans.

All I know is I said this team lacked weapons before the season started and every Redskin fan I ran into went on a long rant about Chris Cooley, Fred Davis, Santana Moss, Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson and Devin Thomas.

Not sure how Thomas ended up on the Giants roster though.

Being a Skins fan for 43 yrs, I have said we need big, physical receivers that can jump up and get the damn ball. We don't have that. Portis should have been shipped off long ago. We should have gotten Chester Taylor for that clown. Davis has stepped up. Moss and Cooley are vets, however, they need help. Thomas was not getting it done. Again, the O Line is not there, either...

Maybe they need to fire their coach. Oh wait, that was Dallas.

You want fan support? Win some games. That 5-6 record isn't going to cut it.

Or, charge less for beer. Give it away. So how about it, Carlos? You make enough money. How about a round for the house?

I like Anthony Armstrong though. He won't fix the need for big physical receivers but his yards per catch (21.8) is off the charts good.
