Opposing fan emotions: Redskins edition

Opposing fan emotions: Redskins edition

In a former life, I wrote for Bleeding Green Nation, the Eagles' website under the SB Nation umbrella. Gamedays are full of emotion for all fans, and that emotion really shows through on SB Nation's gametime open threads. After games it's always fun to go back and observe the prophetic, delusional, smart, and ridiculous comments made in those threads by fans of opposing teams. This week, we'll rehash the emotional rollercoaster that Redskins fans experienced Monday night at the great Redskins site, HogsHaven.com.

As a quick disclaimer, this is not an original idea. Full credit for this idea goes to my friend @OCC44, a Cowboys fan who thought of this a few years ago. Since it's an awesome idea, I'm stealing/implementing it.  

Without futher ado...
