Washington, Chicago or whomever, it really didnt matter, he was gone regardless. We got what we had to out of him while he was here. He can thank the Steelers for hand delivering that fat contract from Synder

Honestly, if you bring a winning attitude to the game everyday & know that in your heart, the decision he made was the correct one for him, no doubt.

I sincerely wish him the best & have no ill will towards him for that decision. A 2 million dollar difference per YEAR? That would've been an easy decision for me to make also. The Redskins were my team growing up, the first 25 years of my life, so I kinda like seeing him in Washington. :)

I've lived here since 1995, have bled Black & Gold since that time, but I can tell you anything about the Skins for the preceding 25 years or so. :D

Bottom Line it was all about the money!!! The thing that Pis$ed me off watching that news confernce was him saying it's not about the money,he felt so welcome with the attention the Foreskins were giving him and after the deal was done he called Lovie Smith and the Rooneys to see if they could make the numbers work, I.E. give me more. The Foreskins are putting the pieces together to make run at the Super Bowl, in case you didn't notice the pieces ARE already here.
Why in the world can't he just fricking admit it was all about the money, MO MONEY,MO MONEY, MO MONEY !!!

El did the right thing. He has his ring, now get the $$. The Super Bowl was the best commercial for El and he got the money. His productivity does not equal the paycheck but honestly would we have done anything different? I agree that he will be cut in 3 years but hopefully he will have the bank to last him. For us, he can be replaced. The trick plays were the biggest asset he brought, but someone else said it before; we were doing the trick plays before El got here.

Good luck El and thanks for what you've done but, don't anticipate anything other than mediocre teams for the next several years.

OK- not that I want to beat a dead horse but found this and have to give credit where it is due!

ATTENTION RANDLE EL...


OK, so you are richer than you were yesterday. But keep in mind the following...

1. That you have signed with a team that is already set in the wide reciever position and will probablly run you as a #3 guy... MONEY BEFORE POSITION

2. That you have signed with a team that has an owner that puts more value in buying big name flashy players than investing in guys that bleed and sweat from a genuine love for the game... MONEY BEFORE HEART

3. That you will be pawning your superbowl ring as soon as Dan Snyder finds someone else with a flashier name and even Al Davis doesn't know who you are... MONEY BEFORE STABILITY

4. That you were one one of the ONLY NFL teams that complimented your style of play and made you look at your best... MONEY BEFORE COMMON SENSE

5. That instead of 80,000 screaming fans waving Terrible Towels and cheering you onto the field, you now have to look at a bunch of fat guys in dresses wearing pig noses... MONEY BEFORE FAN APPRECIATION

6. That occasionally getting into the playoffs stems only as a result of being in a division that is consistantly mediocre and is only good enough to not lose as much as the other teams and eventually has to play an AFC team... MONEY BEFORE WINNING

7. That Washigton DC has the highest crime rate per capita and tripled the crime rate compared to that in the Burgh... MONEY BEFORE YOUR FAMILY

8. That Lavar Arrington just actually forfieted money to be able to leave Washigton to go to a team that will not sit you on the pines because of personal off-field politics... MONEY BEFORE REPUTATION

9. That words like "superbowl", "parade", "Lombardi" and "champion" will be forever restricted from your volabulary and replaced by words such as "overpaid", "overrated", "dead-weight" and "downgraded"... MONEY BEFORE PRIDE

10. And finally, that you were a millionaire regardless of what city or team you play for... MONEY BEFORE MONEY



ENJOY YOUR CAVAIR, DOM PERIGNON, AND LOUIS VUITTON TOILET PAPER... IN THE MEANTIME WE HAVE ANOTHER SUPEBOWL TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!
