  1. Nah, I don’t think the commentators even knew the Skins were in the game. Did they ever talk about us? i think the commentators talked more about the Giants than they did about Washington.
  2. Redemption? Our scrubs beat their starters!🤪
  3. Two weeks in a row Hogan has shown absolutely nothing. Looks like he’ll get one last chance to redeem himself.
  4. If there's one thing that's been incredibly consistent with Trump, it's that he blames others for what he is most guilty of.
  5. Hopefully, if sanity prevails, but it doesn't always and government processes can be frustratingly slow.
  6. I don't see the value of taking away Brenan's security clearance. I mean I guess it's fine as he no longer works there, but on the other hand, you lose the advantage of his ability to consult to the best of his ability. I'm sure he has a wealth of knowledge, strategies, and contacts that are invaluable, but it's not really possible for him to help they need to talk to him in generalities and "what if" scenarios. The removal comes off as petty and without purpose, but also has the potential to create harm. Worse, it would've at least been nice for Trumps to consult Coates before doing it.
  7. Vox: Elizabeth Warren has a plan to save capitalism

    I like Warren and think she's actually a really smart economic wonk. She attacks things like a professor or a researcher and that appeals to me. She is, without question, left. More, I think her heart and usually her head are in the right place. The biggest thing going against her is probably the reason I like her best. She's boring. She's serious. She's careful and studious. She just lacks the charisma and fire needed to get things done. I guess what I'm saying is that Elizabeth Warren would probably be a great Secretary of... but I don't think she's the person you put on the podium to drive interest and sell your story. She's Radar O'Reilly. She gets it done and glues it all together, but she's not the headline or star of the show.
  8. Yeah, but even those guys only "speak forcefully." When it comes to actions they meekly follow the herd. They make lemmings look like individualists.
  9. I tend to agree. The problem is not Trump. The problem is that Trump is only the flag on top of the iceberg. Underneath that flag is a mountain of rot. That's GOP led Washington and the conservative media. However, that's not the worst of it either. Beneath that, is the 90% of the iceberg that we can't see. The 30% of the country that actually believes and agrees with Trump. The fifteen percent who are so party blind that they will forgive anything their team does.The five percent like Jeff Flake who speak loudly, but carry no stick whatsoever and instead rollover and beg. It's worse than Russia tricking us though that's part of it. It may even be worse than Russia manipulating the actual ballot which I am more than a little tin-hat afraid of. It's that a plurality of this nation is part of the problem and a far larger part than I ever imagined. The very real damage we are doing to community, economy, environment and foreign relationships/alliances is going to harm us possibly for decades to come. Most of the iceberg accepts it for a tax cut they aren't even getting and the hope that next time, the tax cut will lead to a wage increase and not another stock buy back.

    That sucks! I had high hopes for Davis to emerge. That's two preseasons in a row, isn't it?
  11. No More Starters in Preseason???

    There’s a part of me that thinks that all these veteran days off, practices without pads or hitting, and lack of two a days contribute to our injuries. Our guys aren’t used to taking a hit and maybe they don’t know how to take a hit.
  12. 2018 Season Injury News

    Sure, but at this point, you do have to question what we are doing wrong? Are we focusing too much on strength and neglecting endurance or flexibility? Is there a fix in equipment, pads, shoes? I mean some injuries are bad luck, but sometimes injuries happen because of fatigue or strength or stiffness or something correctable.
  13. I think it depends on the grade of the sprain. We don’t know much at this point. A sprain could mean practically anything.
  14. Gameday Thread: Redskins @ Patriots

    Hey, I got to get into game shape too seriously though, how am I to develop a Udfa draft crush if they all fall on their face
  15. Gameday Thread: Redskins @ Patriots

    I’m not upset, but I love rooting for the underdog. None emerged although Hamilton and Settle shone a bit.
