  1. Hope I'm wrong as usual but Raiders probably take this one 29-17
  2. Finally got a chance to watch it last night. Brought back some memories for sure. I was hoping I would see one of the lasting memories I have from that Monday night game against Dallas. It was when they were running their FG team out onto the field for a kick. Whoever the PK was, as he was running out he actually practice kicked while running in stride. I don't know why I remember that but I guess it was just so funny to see at the time. As others have said, Gibb's response to the ring question was interesting to say the least. ESPN did a decent enough job telling the story, but their Redskin bias still was on full display. Did anyone else notice that when someone was talking and they gave their name, team, position, etc. it said Washington as the team name, but for everyone else it said Cowboys or Giants, etc. I though this quote from Coyle was just perfect in every way: “I was at the White House. I shook Ronald Reagan’s hand,” replacement center Eric Coyle said. “I had no reason to believe I wasn’t getting a ring, until the ring fittings had come and gone and nobody checked me. … After the rings were distributed, one of the coaches, he said, ‘Why don’t you take mine and have some duplicates made?’ That’s a difficult ring to replicate. I was disappointed with the settings. I didn’t think they set the stones very well. Love it and hate it. I love it. I earned it. In some ways it’s kind of a metaphor for the whole experience. It’s not quite the real thing.” (credit for above quote to: ) https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/dc-sports-bog/wp/2017/09/13/joe-gibbs-wont-say-it-but-1987-redskins-replacements-deserve-super-bowl-rings/?utm_term=.944c0155f58d
  3. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I think the team is better in some areas; run D seems improved and overall team depth is better. But the D still can't get off the field on 3rd downs, and the offense just plain stinks right now. The o-line can't run block or pass-protect and the receiving corp is majorly downgraded. Until Pryor starts catching balls and Doctson actually shows he is an NFL caliber receiver, Ryan freaking Grant is going to be the star of this team. Let that sink in. The schedule is brutal. I know schedules that look tough at the start of the season tend to change as it unwinds, but unless this team gets its **** together fast the losses are going to come in bunches.
  4. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    It's hard to look at the schedule and find more than 4 wins. I picked 4-12 in the prediction thread and I'm struggling to even get to 4. This is a not very good team.
  5. I have zero faith Doctson will ever be worthy of his draft position.
  6. Redskins vs Rams Prediction Thread: Possible Gauntlet March?

    Boy Wonder and Son-of-Bum win 31-3
  7. The Positive Thread

    That's embarassing. I know it wasn't a sexy matchup, but still, you would think the Rams first real game back in LA in what, 20+ years that there would be a decent crowd.
  8. The Positive Thread

    Fuller looks healthy and could become a really nice player.
  9. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    Damn, things are salty this morning. Never said anything about getting rid of Kirk or easily finding a franchise QB, so don't put words in my mouth.
  10. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    Last year it was a strength. This year it is not.
  11. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I want a QB that elevates a team, not vice versa. Kirk hasn't proven to be that guy. He's a serviceable starting QB that you can win with in certain circumstances.
  12. Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: 2017-18 Kick-Off Spectacular

    The start of a long, disappointing season. Eagles 30-13

    So is there an official 53 list anywhere?
