That's two prominent Redskins coming out to say the same thing coming off another road win, a 16-3 victory at Tampa on Sunday, to improve to 6-3 on the season.
All he wants is a packed FedEx Field, but understands it's not that simple. Here is Thompson's full response, uninterrupted.
"Nope. I have no comment at all," Thompson said Monday. "I'm not saying anything about it cause ya know, like…it's one of those things, like…as human beings, you can pick out whatever you want to hear in something that someone says, or you can sit down and really look at something and say, 'Okay, what is this person really saying to me? What is he saying to the fan base?'
"All the responses I see all the time is 'we've been fans for 10-plus years. We've been fans for 25-plus years,' whatever the case may be, 'and we haven't gotten any results. The Redskins have been terrible.'
"I've been here for six years. I understand. I know! I've been to one playoff game in six years! But, my thing is, I feel like we're doing good. We're doing good right now. We have a really good team, and what it comes down to is, myself and Josh, we just want it to be packed out and we don't want it to feel like it's 50/50 when we're at our home field and they have as many fans as we do. And I know that's exaggerating, because that's never the case. But sometimes certain situations – we're down, we're losing and their fans are super loud and we can't quiet them. That's obviously based on us having a poor performance. But we just want everybody to be there. That's it. That's it. We want our fans to be out there and just have our backs.
"It's really like, we don't know year in and year out if we're gonna get to a Super Bowl, but every single guy – all 63 people in here – want to win a Super Bowl and that's our ultimate goal. We just want everybody to come out and support us through this journey. If you're a real fan, you're gonna support your team through this journey, not only if we come out and this season we're 9-1 or 8-1 or whatever, and we've dropped the ball and got killed in the three games that we lost – it hasn't even been close – but we still want your support. I don't think any of the Super Bowl teams were undefeated, but they still got the support and that's all we want. And that's it."
Thompson also addressed his rib injury, how he regrets missing so much time this season (he's missed four games), and plenty of other topics. You can hear it all below.
