  1. The "Remember That Time..." Thread

    I remember hanging out in the parking lot before the game and meeting Joe Jacoby. He was just massive in person. Riding home on the metro after the game, and everyone had pieces of sod from the field.
  2. The "Remember That Time..." Thread

    I can't find a video (only ones that seem to show up are Frerotte head butt videos) but I remember being at the first game at JKC stadium against the Cardinals in 1997. Frerotte to Westbrook for 40 yards in overtime to win the game. I thought for sure that was going to be something special when I left that day. Story
  3. Link I'll be glad to see him go. Dude has been a stud.

    I saw the UDFA list in the other thread. That's why I was asking. I guess the UDFA thread was still just hearsay, not actual announcement of contracts. He most likely wasn't going to make the team, but I was hoping he got a shot at least.

    What Happened to TY McCulley from CSU-Pueblo? He was on the UDFA list but doesn't seem to be listed anywhere as being signed.
  6. 2018 UDFA Thread

    I graduated from CSU Pueblo, so I’ll be interested to see how Ty McCulley does. Can’t find any video of him, but he seems like fodder. CSU Pueblo has been one of the top teams in Division II for the past seven or eight years, and won a championship in 2014. So they have some talent. I guess we’ll see.
  7. Press Release: #REDSKINS ANNOUNCE 2018 SCHEDULE

    They're talking Super Bowl
  8. 3 of the best statistical seasons the team has had at qb. Three more years and he's probably the franchise's all time passing leader. I'm sad to see him go. I'll be optimistic about Alex Smith moving forward, but will probably always wonder what if on Cousins.
  9. Hey all. Several years ago I posted in here asking if anyone knew where I could see the Case for Art Monk video that was sent to the voters prior to Monk (finally) being elected into the HOF. I finally tracked down the guy who produced it, Thomas Kercheval. Turns out he had one of the DVDs left and he posted it to youtube. I don't know if Thomas is a member here, but if he is I'd like to publicly thank him for making the video in the first place, and for putting it back up so that we can see it again.

  11. Six In A Row...Or We Blow??

    Boy, it sure would be nice to go for 6 in a row to start a season...
  12. Skins Giants Assessments

    The game recap on ESPN claimed that the reason they didn't get the 4th and 1 play off after the timeout was that one of the players had taken off his shoe. Go figure. It is agonizing to sit and watch game after game where these guys shoot themselves in the foot over and over again. My daughter was watching the game with me, and when I was upset with the way they were playing, she asked me why I was upset when the redskins were leading 10-3. Then almost immediately after the pick 6 happens, and I told her "This is why I can't be happy about any lead less than three touchdowns". They seemingly weekly find ways to keep the other team in the game. I'm willing to chalk this one up to a short week with injuries to recover from and a division rival as the reason why the team struggled so much. But I will tell you I was relieved when the last field goal was kicked to go up by 10. I had visions of a blocked fg for a touchdown or a miss followed by Eli making one perfect pass to tie it up followed by a complete collapse from the team. I hate not ever being able to sit back and enjoy a comfortable win. Just one time to finish out this season, I would like to not have a game get "interesting" with a lead.
  13. Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    That, and the interception by Fuller that wasn't because of the illegal use of hands penalty. Game over if that int stands.
  14. Giants haven't been scoring much recently, and the Redskins are "due" for an easy win. It would be a nice ending to Thanksgiving to not have to be sweating out the final 5 minutes. Giants make quick drives at the end of each half, but only come away with field goals. Redskins finally take a lead and keep it. 21-13 Redskins.
  15. Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    This was one thing I didn't get. The play before the intentional grounding, the receiver ran out of bounds, stopping the clock. If the intentional grounding stops the clock, with a 10 second runoff, why did the clock start up again too? I thought the clock didn't start until the snap...
  16. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    To be fair, Brees has consistently put the New Orleans offence in the top of the league: 2014: #1 in yards, #9 in points 2015: #2 in yards, #8 in points 2016: #1 in yards, #2 in points I would argue that if it weren't for Brees, the Saints would be winning 3 or 4 games a year rather than 7 or 8. In contrast, their defensive rankings were: 2014: #31 in yards, #28 in points 2015: #31 in yards, #32 in points 2016: #27 in yards, #31 in points One might say that this lack of defense stems from not having money for good players. Let's see who they drafted: 2014: Round 2, Pick 26 (58 overall) Nebraska DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste (6'3",218) Round 4, Pick 26 (126 overall) California ILB Khairi Fortt (6'2".248) Round 5, Pick 27 (167 overall) Alabama SS Vinnie Sunseri (5'11", 210) Round 5, Pick 29 (169 overall) (From Patriots through Eagles) Florida OLB Ronald Powell (6'3”, 237) 2015: Round 1, Pick No. 31 LB Stephone Anthony, Clemson Round 2, Pick No. 44 LB Hau'oli Kikaha Washington Round 4, Pick No. 78 (from Miami) DB P.J. Williams, Florida State Round 5, Pick No. 148 LB Davis Tull, Tennessee-Chattanooga Round 6, Pick No. 154 (from Kansas City) DT Tyeler Davison, Fresno State Pick No. 167 CB Damian Swann, Georgia (From Washington through Seattle) 2016: Round 1, Pick No. 12 DT Sheldon Rankins, Louisville Round 2, Pick No. 30 FS Vonn Bell, Ohio State Round 4, Pick No. 22 DT David Onyematta, Manitoba Canada Want to know how many of those players are on the team? None from 2014, two from 2015, and the 3 from 2016. Five out of 13 selections remain. One starter, and four backups. These guys should be the backbone of your team. Young, cheap talent. But the Saints have done an awful job of evaluating defensive players. The Saints not making the playoffs is not a product of either Brees not being good enough to justify his contract, or a result of not having any money left over to pay the defense. The Saints have been bad because they chose defensive talent poorly. As an example, look at the Saints now. A good defense (two really good hits this year in the draft certainly helped) and Brees still killing it (contract an all) and all the sudden a mediocre team is a playoff contender. Something tells me that if Prescott and Wentz continue the way they are going, they are going to get huge contracts in three years too. And those teams aren't going to bat an eye resigning them.
  17. Eagles Redskins Post Game Assessments

    I agree with the notion that the play call on 3rd down at the end of the first half was bad, but a running play would've resulted in the clock being stopped as well due to the two minute warning.

  21. Prime Time and What's Our Identity?

    It sure looked like the DL was beaten down in that 2nd to last drive where they got their last field goal: Runs of 8, 7, 11, and 6, one right after the other.
  22. Good Memories: September 19, 2005 - Monday Night Miracle

    I was working on a road construction project up on Mauna Kea in Hawaii. I had crappy AM reception so two hours of static filled misery until I called it quits and turned the radio off before I drove down the volcano back home in Hilo. I was pretty depressed about not even showing up for the game. Due to the time zone difference, MNF is tape delayed to 8:30 pm. I got home around 5 pm local time, and a little later I turned on ESPN just to see how bad it turned out. First time I saw the score crawl across the bottom of the screen, I thought I was seeing things. So I sat for several minutes until it came across again. 14-13. I was so excited I sat through the whole miserable first three quarters knowing they weren't going to do anything good, just to see how it ended. Worth it.
  23. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    Fair enough. For the record, I hope Cousins snaps out of whatever has been holding him back the last two weeks, has another record setting year, and the front office pays him.
  24. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I agree that he is a slow starter, and maybe his trajectory continues upwards and two years from now he's Superbowl MVP. I'm just saying that there are a TON of qbs that were not surefire HOF guys 8 years in. The vast majority of them stayed mediocre. Jim Harbaugh had two of his best years at about the same time in his career as Cousins. Incidentally, those were also his only two winning seasons for his whole career. Jim Everett had a similar career. Two early great years, then mediocre. There are a lot more Harbaughs and Everetts than there are Youngs and Elways. Who knows which way Cousins will go?
  25. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I mean, if you think Cousins hasn't struggled in these past two weeks... and down the stretch last year... Cousins has had two great years statistically. My response was to someone comparing that 49ers fans and Broncos fans on how they viewed HOF qbs midway in their careers (both had 8 years in the league in the years in question) with Redskins fans and how they view Cousins.
