I was at your game v the Bucs yesterday. I have to be critical - it was the worst NFL game I have ever been to. Two bad teams heading the wrong way. I did like that Portis gave it his all. In fairness to Zorn it looks like he makes enough half-time adjustments to pull something out in the second half. I much say though the fans were awful at the game. I understand your frustration but the booing was ridiculous!! Though I did start some myself just for my own amusement! The fans were really on the back of Zorn, many running to the tunnel to shout at the team as they left the field at the half.

Finally, was impressed with Fletcher - a very good leader for some on D

Well before I weigh in, I'd just like to say I prefer to cheer when things go well and stay silent when they don't at sports events....

....that said, when you've suffered for years and Campbell continues to lose/turn over the ball, which has been a problem this year, do you not think a paying fan has the right to vent frustration? Even the legend that is Sonny Jurgensen thought Zorn should bench Campbell at the half.

If you tried shouting "Hey Zorn, bench Campbell" I doubt you'd be heard. Therefore co-ordinated booing seems the only choice.

Incidentally, I don't think Collins is the answer.

2 things to say about the subject,

Sack Zorn now(he is like a fish out of water as a coach).

Bench Campbell(will never be a starting QB as long as he's got a hole in his A--S).



P.S. Redskinsno.1, are you still going to fed-ex this year or are you coming
out with me and rog next year.

I have to say I predicted a 10-6 before the season starts. Now looking at those numbers reversing.

6-10/7-9 is my new call. I can see us losing to one of the Chiefs or Raiders and beating a team like the Broncos and Chargers, just because that's what the Redskins are like. I think we'll also beat the Saints as I think our defence matches up well with their offence. Blache 3-safety and dime and nickel defences all day and nullified them well. I think we'll go 2-4 in the division, splitting it with the Cowboys and Eagles home and away and then lose to the Giants at Fedex.
