    Focus on NY

    This has all the hallmarks of a letdown game but we'll see. If this defense is a solid as we believe it is and we don't go out of our way to shoot our own feet, then we should play downhill to a comfortable win. Should... If they do come away with another win things will really hot up around here!

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Saints

    I think I'm over the Redskins. I went almost the whole day without thinking about it and was watching french cooking videos when the wide said "do you want me turn to turn on the game?" Kinda wish she hadn't.... Turned it off before the half and back to Youtube to pick a recipe for this weekend. That's where I'm at these days. I'm looking for things that are going to make me happy

    Game Day Thread- Colts at Redskins

    Seems like lots of Redskin fans disguised as empty seats
  4. ...said Bobby Beathard, 5 mins before drafting Ryan Leaf!
  5. "The LSU product slid in the draft due to non-football related issues. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that sources describe Guice as "immature" and "high maintenance," noting some of his visits with teams did not go well. Rapoport added there were incidents in college that teams found out about that were not previously reported. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock added that there is another investigation that could potentially be embarrassing for Guice and the team that selected him." What's this all about?

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    The Clouds, composed by Aristophanes. The story features a philosopher named Socrates who keeps up a school of skepticism. A nearby farmer manages to come up with all the usual dull questions asked by the faithful. For one thing, if there is no Zeus, who brings the rain to water the crops? Inviting the man to use his head for a second, Socrates points out that if Zeus could make it rain, there would or could be rain from cloudless skies. Since this does not happen, it might be wiser to conclude that the clouds are the cause of the rainfall. All right then, says the farmer, who moves the clouds into position? That must surely be Zeus! Not so, says Socrates, who explains about winds and heat. Well in that case, replies the old rustic, where does the lightning come from, to punish liars and other wrongdoers? The lightning, it is gently pointed out to him, does not seem to discriminate between the just and the unjust. Indeed, it has often been noticed to strike the temples of Olympian Zeus himself. This is enough to win the farmer over, though he later recants his impiety and burns down the school with Socrates inside it.

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    What do I believe? I believe google when it says there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world. I also believe they are entirely man-made as evidenced by the crude carpentry often used to hammer the leaky vessel together from a piece of this and a shard of that. I also firmly believe that you should read Christopher Hitchens book, God Is Not Great. Why Religion Poisons Everything. Better still buy the audio-book and listen to the author read it himself. The mans command of the English language is a revelation and the absolute ease with which he dismantles the 3 great monotheism's (and some lesser ones too) is quite astonishing. RIP Hitch.
  8. Ryan Grant!... Whodathunkit? Could it be a large populace on this board is in collective IQ free-fall? Cousins not worth 25 mil a year? Breeland washed up and done? Grant a scrub and waste of roster spot? The hits just keep on coming... Happy for Ryan Grant. Good for him...

    Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    The more we learn about this screwball, the harder it is to understand Smac's decision to draft him! I thought the MO was to draft smart, hard-nosed guys that love the game? This kid's a cream-puff devoid of any commitment. What the hell went wrong with the selection process? What a waste...
  10. Cost is relative but RGIII was the second player taken in the draft as was Ryan Leaf. RGIII brought a division title to DC while earning ROTY award. Expensive division title perhaps, but Ryan Leaf's tenure in SD was a train wreck in a pig sty and an absolute embarrassment. I don't consider the comparison even close...

    Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    Knew it then and know it now! Intentional grounding should be tied to evading a sack but the reality is Cousins took a 3 step drop and fired to a receiver who ran in instead of out! He wasn't intentionally avoiding a sack, it was just miss-fire...

    Jay Gruden: Buy, Sell Or HOLD: 2017 edition

    I'm still buying! In fact, I'll gonna have buy, buy, buy, buy, ham, eggs and buy. It helps that I'm probably one tenth as emotionally invested in Skins football this year as in years passed. I recommend it... I'm not bitter and I'm not angry and my Sundays are better for it. But I like Gruden and I want him to stay on. And I LOVE his offense,... best we've had since Gibbs-1!
