Monk a class act

Post by Paul Johns » Wed, 08 Sep 1993 22:22:06


All skins fans should be proud, I know I am!!

Petitbon tells Monk before camp that he lost a step and that he will be the
4th WR this season. Monk doesn't complain, he comes out and has his best
camp in years.  Wins back the 3rd WR spot and catches a TD last night and
has some other clutch catches and blocks.

He is an example of the perfect Player or close to it.

Monk will have a big year, and he deserves it.   He could be the big play guy
instead of Sanders this year.

Hats off to Monk!!!!!!

Could the magic be back for the Skins?  It seems like no matter who's in, the
Skins can make the plays.

J.J. hater...  Thats Jimmy

I truly admire Monk. He's the kind of player that gets the work done, makes the  
great plays, and yet he is modest, not boasting. He is one of the Greatest  
ever.

Ditto.

He's one game away from tying the record (for second place) for catching at  
least one pass in the most consecutive games. (Steve Largent has 177 games,  
Ozzie Newsome 150, Art Monk 149.)

Who knows, I think Tony Kornheiser (Washington Post) went to work on the Skins  
Bandwagon in his garage this morning. Watch out, here we go!

One can only hope that the Skins will make the Big Game this year
so Monk can *finally* get his Super Bowl TD catch.... hopefully
the refs won't *rob* him of it again.

Absolutely.
As a long-time Monk fan, I am overjoyed that he is currently our
#1 receiver statistically.  McGee (1 catch, 4 yards), Ha!

He is rather classy.  Too bad you can't say the same for Jack Kent Cooke.

I've never been a fan of JJ since his Miami days, but if there is once city
that most typifies the attitude of "Spend a lot of money on our team to give
us a winner, otherwise we won't give a damn.", it's D.C. with the Redskins.
And you thought George Steinbrenner was bad.

I hate to admit it, but I truly doubted that he had what it took anymore.  That
game alone proved me wrong.

That won't last long unfortunately.  I really hope Petitbon keeps his eyes on
Monk's consecutive catches (unless the game's on the line of course).

Bit too early for this kind of speculation.  If we do this kinda stuff for 3 or
four weeks, then we'll go nuts.

Ah, despite Lachey, I don't think this will be too bad.  If we got through last
year's hell, we can take anything.  How often can something like that happen?

At least you're still in Redskinland.  I'm in Steeler country for college.
My only source for Redskins stuff is USA Today and Steve Williams.

I'm a Cowboys fan and I've always admired Monk.  I hated the way he would
help Washington beat Dallas, but I've always thought he was a class guy and
a great receiver.  The essence of a great rivalry is players on the rival
team who you hate/respect.  Washington has always had these kind of players:
Jurgenson, Kilmer, Riggins, Theisman, Jacoby, D. Green and Monk, to name a few.

As I said:  See you in Dallas.

And this Skins fan feels the same way about the Cowboys over the years:
Staubach, Dorsett, Ed Jones, Danny White, and now Irvin, Aikman and Smith.
And Jimmy Johnson -- his *** has given the Skins fits.  I see blocked
punts in my sleep before Cowboys games.

There's probably no player in the league that I fear in Skins games as much
as Smith -- that's why I was sorry to see him sitting out.  Although I was
happy the Skins won, I feel the victory in the all-important Comboys game
was tainted by not going against your best squad.

I agree that it is the mutual respect which for most fans creates the great
rivalry.  There have been very few years over the history of the NFL in
which the Skins or the Cowboys, or both, were not among the elite teams.
That's why I don't like, for example, the Orioles - Blue jays "rivalry"
as much, because I simply despise the Blue Jays and have no respect for
them.

Not that I think you-all had a chance in hell even with Smith in the lineup.
:-)

Yeah.  I was diappointed to hear Jim Kelly will be out of next weeks game.
We need the win, but I'd rather prove we can still go against the best.

I feel the same way about the Eagles.  Well, I have *some* respect for the Eagles.

Well, since your offensive coordinator *stole* Norv Turner's offense... ;-)
