  1. Greatest Athlete in D.C. History (team sports)

    Sammy played from 1937-1952. He still holds NFL records and helped revolutionize the game as a passer.He was a 3 way standout. His 51 yard punting average for a single season still stands today. In 1943 Sammy led the league with 13 interceptions as a db.Baugh was an 8 time All Pro.
  2. Unbelievably resilient team
  3. Ovechkin is everywhere,you can see how bad he wants this. Hopefully he can help will them to end this tonight.
  4. I would say Charles Mann stood out during the 80s. Four pro bowls, he was a force,particularly when paired with Manley.
  5. What to do with LG

    Just too many side effects to having him on your roster.I’m pretty sure he has been banned from the league anyway.
  6. I’m sure someone here will come up with the name.I remember exactly who you mean but I can’t think of the name either . I am looking forward to seeing how Anthony Lanier develops. Anthony really came on strong at the end of last year. He has all the physical tools and a great attitude.
  7. OK let’s be real,you did say DC sports history, and I even qualified my statement by saying the Ovi would be that figure in the modern era.I am a big Ovechkin fan and would be thrilled for him and the Caps to get the Stanley Cup.
  8. I guess you can say that about Ovie in the modern era but there is one name that stands above the rest all time in DC lore.In my mind Sammy Baugh would have to be the top figure in Washington sports history. He may have been the key figuring in revolutionizing the NFL into a passing league. He was a phenomenal defensive back and one of the best punters in the history of the game. In 1943 he led the NFL in passing,interceptions(11)for a db,and punting average(51yds).He led the Skins to 2 NFL championships. It would take two or three more paragraphs to even get close to listing all of his accomplishments.
  9. I was not aware of that with Orpik. My thought would be that when he went back out and tried to play and couldn’t that there has to be at least thoughts of a concussion. Hopefully, that is not the case.
  10. Holtby is the better goalie right now.Fluery is good but other than that Holtby brain freeze BH has been much better. Seems Holtby is very confident.
  11. I don’t know,the angle showed didn’t look like he was in the crease.
  12. I can remember so many times hollering at the TV over those non-calls. I do however, remember one that they actually did call against the Cowboys for holding Orakpo.That call negated what would have been a game winning touchdown for Dallas.
  13. RIP to a lifelong Redskins fan

    May God bless you and your family!
  14. What to do with LG

    Really like the first two picks and think it was a very solid draft overall.The only pick I really didn’t care for was the third rounder,believe he was a reach.Hopefully, I am wrong.
  15. What to do with LG

    I agree with you but believe there is no team without question marks. LG is a huge deficiency on this team as opposed to a ?Sometimes it does come down to things breaking your way.Good coaching,team character and staying somewhat healthy are critical. I like the make up of this team overall as well as the coaching staff. Hopefully,they will have a few less injury issues this year.
