08:05 AM ET 11.14 | Brian Orakpo was around for Washington's 4-12 season in 2009, but said Sunday this season's struggles are more surprising. "I don't know, man. It's just frustrating. You're trying to hold your head up, but it's just frustrating and we just can't get it together. It's like every team we're going to play, they already know they're going to win because of the way we're playing. It's just ridiculous, man. We've got to figure out a way to turn this [stuff] around." Orakpo continued: "I wish I had an answer for you, man. It's frustrating. We just have to dig deep. It's cliche, but I'm running out of material. I've never been through something like this before."

If you're still around in a few years...it will still be frustrating....just like the last 25 or so years...

Of course they know... Fans know, too.

Worse **** team in Football.

AND IT'S ALL COACHING!!!

With Rex Grossman at QB, why in the hell do you try to pass the ball on first down inside the opponents 10 yard line?

In other great news though... Trent Williams and Fred Davis have failed drug tests.

Who knows how bad we would be if they hadn't cheated.

^^^^^^^^^^and 15 minutes can't save your season either

The keys to the Washington fix is simple. 1.Buy borrow or kidnap a QB, 2. Fire Shanahan, 3.Fire the other Shanahan, 4. Hire a smart guy with a baseball bat to follow Lil' Danny around and make sure he doesn't do anything stupid for a couple years.

Not the way the Eagles play the last 15 minutes of their games, it can't.
