Take Heart, Fans, It Feels Empty Without You Guys

Yesterday was the first A.M. practice without fans, and it was a notably different environment.

This used to be your playground....

Look at the vast swaths of land, no longer occupied by mobs of people. Listen to the sounds of practice, without the shouts of “YES SIR!”

“These days before you hit the stretch when you’re playing games, gameplanning, getting days off – those are the dog days. The fans egg you on a lot. They get you fired up a lot quicker,” said WR Billy McMullen.

Fred Davis had a similar take.

“It’s different not having the fans here. You really have to work to keep the energy up. Coach did a good job motivating us, though – you get a little sluggish waking up every morning at 6:00.”

  1. yes Fred, we all know you don’t like to get up in the morning ;)

  2. Davis is missing the chief on the helmet, is that a new rookie thing that it has to be “earned”?

  3. Yes. Coach Zorn has reinstituted an old policy about new Redskins having to “earn their feathers”. They’ll have them on during the preseason games, of course, but they’ll be taken back off for practices.

  4. “you get a little sluggish waking up every morning at 6:00.” – Fred Davis.
    LOL! I don’t doubt it.

  5. Hey Fred, you also get a little sluggish in the mornings after toking some reefer for breakfast… but that has never slowed down #26 CP baby!

  6. Well not EVERY morning…right Fred??
