    I'd like to agree. Heart says yes, mind says no.

    General Mass Shooting Thread (originally Las Vegas Strip)

    So you're an expert in training and protocol? I mean, if we're going that route I'd assume that having a guy on his chest with your gun in his back and instructing him not to move should be more closely examined by an officer arriving on the scene instead of just firing off shots. I'm not even bringing the racial implications into this, although that's probably the easiest thing to do. The NRA has long been supporting "a good guy with a gun will stop active shooter situations," and this is a situation that completely pisses all over that narrative. Here's a good guy with a gun who lost his life for doing the right thing and being a hero, all because someone had an itchy trigger finger.

    That sounds like a good summary of what happened, yes.

    Most Memorable victory and worst loss for Washington

    Dude, I hated the Cardinals almost as much as the Cowboys back in the 90s. First, they were in our division and it didn't make sense. One team in the southwest part of the country in the NFC East. At that time, I knew the Cowboys would give us fits because of Aikman, Smith and Irvin. I understood that and accepted it. They were usually just better than us. I hated it, but understood it. The Cardinals? **** them, Right in the neck. Every year, no matter who they had, it was just the most annoying **** ever. EVER. The Boomer Esiason game is the absolute perfect example of how insanely annoying/frustrating/maddening/rage inducing they were. Every year, no matter what, like clockwork.

    Most Memorable victory and worst loss for Washington

    A lot of memorable ones. From my formative years: Broncos Superbowl Victory. I was 6. My parents had friends over, I wasn't really into football yet. I knew who the Redskins were but didn't care yet. Was upstairs in my room playing with kids from across the street, came downstairs and everyone was miserable. Not much later, I came back downstairs and everyone was going nuts, it was great. I remember watching a very little bit of it. That's kinda what hooked me. I'm not sure how I got this stuff but I had a pennant and a pin from that game. Pretty much all of the 1991 season. Kicking the living **** out of the Lions on the opening night. Talk of an undefeated season. The whole feeling was electric. I don't know if DC will ever get back to that kind of a feeling...we've been close, but not quite there. The seat cushion game, absolutely annihilating Deion and Jerry Glanville in that game. I remember that more than the SuperBowl. More recently, destroying the Cowboys at home 35-7 in 2005, Cooley going off for three touchdowns and Parcells looking like he didn't know what was going on. I was at that game, me and a buddy got tickets close to the 50 yard line about 10 rows back earlier in the season when they were cheap and the team wasn't so hot. By the time that game rolled around, the Skins were hot and it was a valuable ticket. That was about as good of a home win as I've seen in person. The worst game for me, outside of some of the ones that have been mentioned was in 1996 where Boomer ****ing Esiason threw for over 500 yards while quarterbacking the Cardinals. The Cardinals also had Larry Centers who we could flat out not stop. I'm probably wrong here but I'm pretty sure 475 of those 500 yards that Esiason threw for were to Larry Centers on passes out of the backfield. Larry Centers always killed us. I remember watching that game and getting so pissed because Esiason was old, not very good anymore and we couldn't do anything to stop him. I just looked it up, it's the 7th most passing yards given up in a game in history. We lost 37-34 in overtime. Hate to break it to ya boss, but the '83 49ers didn't have Rice yet, they didn't have him until 1985. Still, you are right, it's a game that doesn't get mentioned too often. It is a classic. One thing I never knew about this game...go to 1:55 on the highlights. Moseley missed like...5 kicks this game?
  6. JP Finlay is spot on there.

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25243455/nba-power-rankings-our-expert-panel-ranks-league-30-teams-ahead-week-5 There's no comp between a pretender like Carmelo and an all time great like Paul Pierce.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    I can't believe that people are trying to pick between Kirk and Alex in a bar fight.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    I think 10-6 is a realistic outcome.
  14. So Redskins fans are more poor than fans of the other 31 NFL teams?
