They Are Who We Thought They Were: Lions 19, Redskins 14

Posted by SuckaFish

Lisa: Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?
Homer: No, I do not know what schadenfreude is, please tell me because I am dying to know …
Lisa: It’s a German term for “shameful joy”, taking pleasure in the suffering of others.

That pretty much sums up my feelings today. Here are some of my favorite quotes/links after the team Mike Florio predicted to be in the Super Bowl became the first team to lose to the Lions since 2007.

Two fun posts in the Sports Bog:
One asks if this was the worst DC sports moment of 2009.
The other wonders if it’s time for a change. It includes these quotes:

Michael Strahan on Fox’s halftime show: “They’ve quit. The Washington Redskins have quit on the field.”
Trevor Matich, on CSN’s Postgame Live: “Beneath Rock Bottom. The only way it could have been worse if they would have been beaten by Maryland.”
Jon Jansen, on CSN: He said the win “couldn’t have come against a better team.” Also, if he had smiled any harder, all his teeth would have spontaneously popped out of his gums.

Steinz also points out: “Campbell was the only Skins player who agreed to be on CSN’s postgame show. Well, Campbell on Jon Jansen. That’s just absurd.”

And from Twitter:

There are team specific issues for sure and some individual issues for sure but the owner ultimately is a loser and you can’t fix that

u r Zorn..Head Coach..in Detroit…alot on the line….and u r chatting up TomKat before the game…what does that tell us about YOU!!!

This is an all time low point in Redskins history.

I’m so embarassed to a Redskins fan right now! What are we doing?

From Mister Irrelevant’s Twitter/Live Blog of the game:
Jamie Mottram (@jamiemottram) Coming to grips with the season being over in Week 3.

If the Supreme Court rules against the Skins they can change their name to EPICFAIL

Next Sunday the Buccaneers travel to FedEx Field and try to keep their one-game lead over the Redskins in the battle for next year’s number one pick.

TCU Rescinds Henson’s Degree

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

BREAKING NEWS: TCU has rescinded the degree previously presented to Robert Henson, former All-MWC linebacker now on the Washington Redskins roster. The university cited Mr. Henson’s series of 52 Twitter postings following the Redskins’ “game” against the Rams Sunday as reported in this front page story in the Washington Post.

“TCU has been embarrassed too much by Mr. Henson’s behavior,” said Associate Chancellor Ben Downtoolong. “We can understand a lack of forethought by his tweeting disrespectfully to the fans who indirectly pay his salary — a salary which is already in excess of anyone on the TCU staff with the exception of the volleyball coach and all other coaches in our athletic department.

The Redskins Hate Their “Dim Wit” Fans

Posted by SuckaFish

Rookie linebacker Robert Henson, who is sadly from TCU, is the most famous inactive player in the world. Despite not playing in Sunday’s thrilling 9-7 win over the Rams he managed to steal the headlines thanks to his overactive thumbs.

After the game Henson got to Twittering:

“All you fake half hearted Skins fan can . . . I won’t go there, but I dislike you very strongly, don’t come to Fed Ex to boo dim wits!!”

Nice move, attacking your fans before you’ve even been active for an NFL game. Of course, we all know that the adrenaline is really flowing when you’re on the sidelines in street clothes doing nothing for 4 hours. I’m sure after he cooled down for a bit he realized his mistake and sent an apology.

“No I didn’t play but I still made more than you in a year and you’d [gladly] switch spots with me in a second. I was talking to the fans [who] said the crazy stuff, I’m use [to heckling] but I’ve never been booed in my own stadium. Again that was for the half hearted but if everyone wants to jump in come on. The question is who are you to say you know what’s best for the team and you work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds [sic]. You don’t wanna follow me anymore then fine but we play for you and win lose or draw we represent you!! My guy on the Rams said they never got booed even when they didn’t win a game.”

I know what you’re thinking, that’s too many characters for a tweet. You’re right, that’s actually a compilation of highlights from some of the 52 tweets he sent that night.

By Monday afternoon he was in the middle of a media circus and eventually apologized. He even came back Monday night with an on-camera apology that must be seen. Of course, the Skins site is as fan-friendly as a day at Fed Ex Field so you have to go to this link then under the player browse by tags and look for Robert Henson. In the video Henson is quick to let us know that it’s “disheartening” that stories are running about this because his apology “was sincere” and “there are bigger issues at hand.” Redskins shill announcer Larry Michael takes the opportunity to ask hard-hitting questions and voice his outrage over the rookie’s lack of respect for the fans.

It makes me proud to be part of the organization folks, to be able to be here at a moment like this, for a young man like this, who wanted to speak to the Redskins fans directly after seeing what would be published and after going through what he went through the last twenty-four hours.

If Henson doesn’t make it as a player it sounds like he’d be a perfect fit in the front office. Maybe he could be the guy that calls Redskins fans and tells them that the team is going to sue them.

If you want to follow Henson just to see what he Tweets this week, good luck. Not surprisingly his Twitter page looks like this.
