Skins Will Not Hike General Admission Tickets For 2012

Usually, NFL teams hiking their ticket prices wait until late on a Friday afternoon to announce the news. In this case, the Redskins waited until late on a Friday afternoon to announced that general admission ticket prices will remain unchanged, remaining at a flat level for the seventh consecutive year.

General admission tickets likely don’t include every seat in FedEx Field, and the team didn’t say what – if any – increases there will be. General admission tickets currently range from $29 to $99. Season-ticket renewals will be sent out during the middle of this month, meaning soon. “We are sensitive to our loyal fans during these difficult economic times,” general manager Bruce Allen said.

    It’s hard to raise already overpriced tickets for a lousy product! I bet as soon as the team can sniff becoming a legit NFC Playoff contender again the ticket prices will rise just as fast as old Danny Boy can raise them!

    LOU SPANOS flees D.C. for the safety of U.C.L.A. heh!

  3. 007 says:

    NT, ILB, CB, SS, FS.

    QB, R-OT, OG, C, TE, WR, RB.

    So who do we sign and let go in this FA period?

    Draft:

    Trade back from #6 IF both RG3 and JUSTIN BLACKMON are off the board. If not FLYNN, draft WEEDEN in the fourth for QB.

  4. 007 says:

    QB:

    Gotta’ be a FA like FLYNN or a mid-round WEEDEN-type pick at QB in the third round. We simply can’t afford to throw picks at a team controlling the RG3 slot, or to INDY for a used up PEYTON MANNING. This team’s not that good……yet!

    WR:

    Assuming RG3 is off the board, JUSTIN BLACKMON should be our pick at #6. But if he’s also off the board, the ‘SKINS should trade back for picks. If BLACKMON is not taken because he’s unavailable, or because of a trade down, ILLINOIS’ A.J. JENKINS would be a good safe alternative in the early fourth round slot. Great speed and good size at 6’1″, but just a bit light for the pro game at 190. Still a find in a middle-round slot but not higher up.

    R-OT:

    Essential for a get in the second round to take over for JAMMAL BROWN whose play is solid, but injury issues are not allowing him to play for any length of time. He should become #3 tackle to this pick and WILLIAMS assuming his toking days are over. If not, we’ll need another pick in the first round for a L-OT as well because WILLIAMS’ next infraction is a one year suspension. Frankly I’m for eventually moving he and DAVIS who are both chowder heads in my book.

    OG:

    LICHTENSTEIGER becomes a RFA, but with that crippling injury is going nowhere. HURT should have a fourth round pick to compete with him, and my choice is MIAMI’s BRANDON WASHINGTON if still on the board with our late fourth pick.

    At C we should resign MONTGOMERY and secure SCOTT WELLS in FA from the PACKERS. A R-OT, OG and C will solidify our offensive line needs. A QB and starting WR will go a long way to improving the offense.
    K:
    Let’s have a truck-load of competitors for GANO to contend with.
    Defense:
    NT:
    A NT to take over for COFIELD is needed with NEILD as the back-up, but unless a trade down nets an extra second round pick, a starter is prolly not going to be available. AUBRAYO FRANKLIN with the SAINTS is a FA, and could be a good alternative pick-up before the draft. Both WELLS and FRANKLIN would complete the line rebuild while accelerating the process considerably because the 2013 draft would not have to become a part of the reconstruction.
    LB:
    Let’s re-sign FLETCHER and FOX, say thanks to ROCKY MAC, and see if JACKSON and MARCUS WHITE are the real deal in that slot.
    CB:
    We need a high CB pick, but would have none left unless a trade down nets an extra third from some brain-dead GM. FA or 2013 look like the most probable scenerios for improvement in 2012, and KEVIN BARNES may have one more shot to prove out. A trade is possible, but his now ‘experienced’ results from 2011 won’t command any respect or demand around the league. PHILLIP BUCHANON……who’s he? BYRON WESTBROOK is merely adequate and a FA. I don’t thaink he’ll be resigned unless the construct of the 2012 team dictates it by necessity. We need help here, and BRANDYN THOMPSON is all that’s in the house.
    S:
    ATOGWE is adequate at FS and back-up MOORE is gone – found wanting. DeJON GOMES may be the answer if healthy, and if the injuries in 2011 don’t cut into his speed. We need a seventh round pick here as that’s all that’s left short of trade-down extra picks.
    At SS, LANDREY is a ?-mark. I can’t see him leaving with the injury history he has despite his extrodinarily high level of play. I say he resigns with another make-good, one-year deal, and we go searching in round five for a replacement for REED DOUGHTY who needs to improve his late-arrival tackling techniques. He tries hard, but just is a bit too slow on the defensive uptake. However, short of a FA upgrade, or extra picks from trade-downs, he may be on this team until the 2013 draft.

    A rumor is floating around that the REDSKINS are going to let ST. LOUIS pick RG3 and take SAM BRADFORD off their hands in a trade. I’d rather have the GROSS-man again than BRADFORD and his bloated contract. Just say no to the second coming of ‘Slingin’ Sammy’.

    DeJON GOMES
    WINSTON GUY JR. – 3rd round
    TRUMAINE JOHNSON – late fourth round

    K – CONNER BARTH – FA
    P – SAV ROCCA

    This allows SHANNY to have shiny new toys at QB, RB, WR, and TE. Of course, there are so many variables amongst signing your FA’s, and then other team’s, and the draft that this is pretty much an exercise in futility at this point, but hey, it fun being GM. I’ll bet I could top VINNIE CERRATO’s record with this bunch.

    And after the FAT ALBERT contract, I’m not assuming anything is impossible where the ‘SKINS are concerned.

    Oops, ETHAN JOHNSON DE – 7th round

    REDSKINS take heart and remember, we beat the potential Super Bowl champs twice in 2011. Lrt’s don’t lose focus and concentrate on the prize……….a title.
