  1. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    I mean, even at the scrum a few days ago.... somebody on the Jets was ‘perceived’ to give Moses a ‘cheap shot’ (another term for sucker punch). And the retaliation was it’s equivalent - physical violence met with physical violence. Usually there’s some pushing-pushing as pretence. However, escalating from trash-talking.... to not even threatening physical violence to simulating it without any pretence or agreement? Yeah, that would take most people off-guard. Trashing talking is an accepted part of the game. Assaulting another player is not. That’s why it rarely occurs.

    TP tried to.... except DS ran away as soon as he pulled up on the punch. TP should’ve just walked away. He got played...

    Athletes throw punches all the time. In fact, it was just 2 days ago when Trent Williams swung and missed a Jets player. That wasn’t to see if he’d flinch. 🙂 Every joint practice in the NFL has had its brawls. Let’s not pretend it doesn’t happen and isn’t a very likely probability. In fact, the Tweet above shares that Gruden had to tell the players specifically not to fight Pryor. Would that be because it wasn’t s distinct possibility! 😁

    I think most people would just prefer to watch football. I know I do.

    A sucker punch is just an unexpected blow. Look it up 🙂 Nothing to do with the direction of the blow in relation to your face 😜

    I don’t understand this POV. Swearinger is jawing from a distance.... Pryor approaches him (we don’t hear his words but I would presume to give some words back). And Swearinger freaks out and pretends to throw a punch (a sucker punch)... and Pryor is the one who’s scared? Is ducking a sucker punch an act of cowardice? Or a legitimate self-defence maneuver? I see it in MMA all the time 🙂 And I mean, if you’re going to throw a punch, throw it! Faking it is a weak move. And then after the fake punch... guess who turns his back and runs away? Personally, I don’t care for any of it. I know Swearinger is a talker, so it’s not surprising. But my scorecard doesn’t have him the winner of this round 😎
  7. As I said, when you trying to avoid pain.... you get exactly what you’re focusing on. He’s going to be back in short order and contribute. How is that not great news?! If the only great outcome is that everything works out perfectly all the time, then you’re committed to personal misery.
  8. Yes, caution. A wonderful self-protection mechanism against pain. Be prudent, rational, safe. The only thing.... this crap isn’t life or death :-) It’s just young kids from different cities playing ball in a city against other kids, from other cities, playing ball representing another city. One thing I’ve come to learn over the years..... is that taking strategies to avoid pain... inevitably leads to more pain (you get more of whatever you think about). Further, attempting to numb pain.... also numbs it’s equivalent emotions on the positive emotion spectrum. When when good things happen... you also feel ‘ho hum’. So to hell with caution.... let’s win the damn Super Bowl. If the Las Vega Knights can go to the SC finals in their inaugural year, then we truly need to throw old narratives out (it takes 3 years to implement a system, or a new head coach, or new personnel needs to mesh, etc. Etc). The Eagles just won the Super Bowl. Without their Pro Bowl LT, QB.... with a rookie head coach and Nick Foles. Anything and everything is possible.
  9. This team has sorely missed a difference-maker at RB since Portis. It’s been painfully obvious to everyone except the coaches. We finally invested draft capital into one. This could be HUGE for the offense/team. All indications (coaches, media, teammates) is that he’s everything we could have wanted. Why live life waiting for the other shoe to drop?
  10. Does anyone believe, for a second, that Guice isn’t the starting back on opening day? Seriously. You have Alex Smith saying he doesn’t have any weaknesses. Chris Thompson is predicting 1200 yards. The worst thing said about him from the RB coach is that sometimes he’s too aggressive in pass protection. And basically all Gruden can say about Guice is, “he’s a ball of energy!” Lol None of this matters. Guice is starting day 1. We all know this.
  11. I could get on board with that. 2 QBs and 3 RBs. It’s a little risky.... but I’m not risk averse 😜
  12. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Sprinkle with Reed or Davis gives options/versatility. You can run or pass out of that. But you can’t run the ball with Davis and Reed on the field.
  13. I think that’s what we all want. 😎 Unfortunately, we don’t select roster spots. And Gruden is typically transparent (effusive with praise) when he likes someone (say Grant, for example). And from all accounts, he’s been very vocal about Kelley... even moreso than Guice for that matter. Not sure if he’s trying to temper Guice and keep the rookie grounded....
  14. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    If Sprinkle evolves into a legitimate blocker.... I’d wager we’ll see a lot of it 😎
  15. Samaje Perine was a 4th round pick. Kelley was an UFA. Who’s the 2nd round RB we drafted last year? :-) And I’d wager than Kelley and the rest of the RB stable are on cheaper contracts than Perine too.
