I'm writing for b/r b/c I LOVE sports. I love basketball, football, soccer, hockey, golf, tennis, bobsledding, baseball, boxing, horseracing...Just haven't latched onto NASCAR or UFC as yet.

Also, I've been a lifelong 'Skins (the franchise should've changed its name eons ago!) fan. However, over the past 14-15 years, the franchise has NOT been a solid franchise. I blame that on two important people: the then-senile Jack Kent Cooke for selling the team (rather than bequeathing it to his sons) in the late 1990s; and Dan Snyder, the too-eager, too hands-on media mogul, who, since 1999, has tried too hard to be like Jerry Jones, and has gotten minimal success since that acquisition of the team.

I don't hate the franchise. But with eight coaching changes since Snyder's been majority owner, the pro football team in Washington (with its headquarters in Virginia, and its football stadium in Maryland, those are some other issues that should be addressed) needs to restore glory and transaction-savvy in a hurry. Not since Bobby Beatherd was GM has the team known how to build a team from the ground up. It needs a formidable front office that doesn't need to rely on Snyder's interference, just his money. It also needs to develop a deep roster, because most teams that are perennial contenders have competent starters and reserves on their offensive, defensive and special teams' squads, respectively. Hope Gruden the Younger (Jay), or whomever may replace him 3, 4, or 5 years down the road, can provide a sliver of hope in the near future.

As a citizen of the DMV, a world-class fan, and a keen observer of things sports-wise, I will try to do the blogger world and everyday sports fan justice by writing quality, albeit acerbic at times, reports.
