    ***2018-19 NBA Season Thread***

    Weren't you the one explaining last year why you thought Embiid wasn't going to last long in the NBA? Something about how he's built, previous injury history, etc.

    2018 MLB Thread

    Don't even think he knows what a cutoff man is. This is going to be a quick series. Sox are that good. Dodgers are pretty good but not in the Sox class.

    Redskins vs Giants Prediction Thread: Meltdown in the Meadowlands Metlife Stadium?

    God, this smells like such a trap game. A chance for us to go up further in the East, kick the Giants further down and really step on their neck. But you can always throw the records out when we play the Giants. I've been picking against the Skins and it's been working so far. I'll say Giants 27, Skins 24. Would love to be wrong.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Someone make a gif of Beal standing there talking to Brooks with Brooks ignoring him.
  5. No, it's meaningless and expensive, @Springfield

    Well there is that, yeah. But then I realize we've got our own, it's all of a sudden not so funny.

    I can't believe Rae Carruth is out of jail. What a piece of ****.

    Man...I kinda like Jerry Jones. Hear me out, hear me out. He's a throwback to NFL owners being synonymous with their teams...and in some cases, bigger than their teams. There aren't any NFL owners like that anymore. NFL owners are largely nameless and faceless today. Sure, you got that guy down in Jacksonville with the mustache and I guess the Mara and Rooney descendants in NY and Pittsburgh but they're not personalities. They're not anyone on an Al Davis level. Jerry is the closest thing to it. So while I'll absolutely never root for Jerry or Dallas, I admire him a little bit from afar. The last of a breed.
  9. Hate to bust up the Tailgate with all the talks of Trump, package bombs in Austin and whether it should be deemed terrorism, Trump, social agendas, Trump, school shootings/gun control, Trump, Russia and Trump... But baseball season starts on March 29th. Twins at Orioles. 3:05 start. I don't feel good about this season, but the Orioles did sign Alex Cobb today. Cashner/Cobb should be an upgrade over Miley/Ubaldo. Still, the rotation is full of guys that are anywhere between #2s and #5s, depending on the day. The offense is still a high strikeout, low OBP, station to station plodding type with guys that need to have hyooooooge seasons if we want to compete. I think this is a 75 win team. Anyway, this is what we've been waiting for. Get your asses in here @Bang @Hersh @DM72 @TheDoyler23 @DCSaints_fan @ixcuincle @RonArtest15 @justice98 @KingGibbs @pjfootballer @GOSKINS_08 @capcrunch98 @abdcskins @SkinFanInMinn LETS GO BIRDS!

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    What a monster he is. We're very lucky.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    I don't disagree. But the defense on the whole wasn't very good no matter what the situation. I agree that Kirk turning it over didn't help situations. Let's also remember that we couldn't run it last year. Everyone knew that Kirk was going to throw it. So he was playing against defense that knew what was coming. So....no DeSean, No Garcon, no running game, a bad defense.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    I like this post. And I agree with the sentiment. But a small part of me rolls my eyes at the "needs to get used to the system and his playmakers" defense. Gruden hyped him as the smartest QB he's been around during preseason. Other QBs go elsewhere and don't have these excuses made for them. IMO, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

    These comps are going to go on for a long time, unfortunately. Anyway, how's RG3 doing?

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    You're right. Cousins was terrible at tackling all those running backs our defense couldn't stop last year.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    That's good research. You could also post the defensive rankings for those same games, too.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    In a weird way, this division is shaping up to be a parallel of Alex Smith's career. The Giants are ****ting the bed and the Eagles and Cowboys are inconsistent. All the Redskins have to do is not screw this up and they can take the division. Kinda like how all Alex Smith has to do is not screw up and he'll win games.

    I'd say "Alex just doesn't do enough to lose," could be more accurate. I agree with the above poster, he's not a turnover machine. He can also scramble a little bit. But he's not gonna win a shootout battle.
  18. Yes, that's true. But I'm talking about where Spaceman Spiff's 2017 taxes went, specifically. I want to know where all my dollars went. 25% of it went to defense, 25% went to funding programs...or did some of it go to members of congress settling sexual harassment claims? https://www.cnn.com/2017/11/16/politics/settlements-congress-sexual-harassment/index.html Sorry, ****wads. I'm not giving away a significant portion of my income each year because you can't act like a responsible person at work. I don't mind paying taxes and having my money go to good programs but just because you can't keep it in your pants around a young intern doesn't mean we have to foot the bill. YOU'RE ****ING ELECTED OFFICIALS (no pun intended). YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE LEADERS. You're supposed to be setting a good example for everyone and then you set up a ****ing fund where taxpayer money goes in order to settle your sexual harassment claims and hope no one notices? The American public isn't here to serve them, it's the other way around. I do believe that concept has been lost over the past 20-30 years. Sexual harassment claim towards you? Deal with it out of your pocket like anyone else would. So yeah, I want to know where it all goes at the federal level, dollar for dollar. Like @Springfield said, the ROI sucks.
  19. 100%. I said awhile ago, I'd like to see a report each year as to where my federal taxes went and how the money was spent. Dollar for dollar, where'd it go? That'll never happen, probably because there'd be riots when people found out where their money goes.

    Improved Rush Defense...(Shoutout)

    They did a great job on the Ewok yesterday. Fantastic, actually. That will probably be his lowest rushing total for the year. I voted too early to tell. Next week against Barkley is going to be a big test, too. If they hold him in check, I'll start to believe it's for real.
