  1. Vinny's coming back. Official announcement tommorow. Snyder told me himself during our weekly squash game. God, even in a bad joke that is a chilling thing to type..
  2. The draft went well. I fully expected it to be a monumental disaster. You know, like drafting 4 wide receivers, a punter in the 2nd round, and neglecting the defensive line entirely until the 7th round. But, we got arguably the best DL in the country. We got a lunchpail toughguy linebacker who has, it would appear, the intangibles (he likely will be a more talented London Fletcher type LB, ideally-- and London was special), a few low-round gambles (if they pan out, bigtime steals), and a bowling-ball running back (to restore the Redskin way of things- grind them into the dirt after aerial fireworks). I'm happy with our haul, I think it improves our defense significantly right off the bat, and hopefully will allow us to stay competitive in the NFC Beast (no more of that NFC Least crap). Now, sign Cousins to LTD and we're set. I'm actually beginning to feel excited for the new season, after months of despair. HTTR
  3. Is it just me, or is Mayock being VEEERY complimentary of our picks this year. Today and yesterday, he has had the most glowing things to say about our draft. Someone earlier in the thread said, likely joking, that he'd be named GM Sunday. I wonder... That being said, I've been pleasantly surprised by our draft thus far. No stinkers yet.
  4. 35 more than I. I salute you and your wife, Hap. May God continue to bless you and yours! Once again, Congrats!!!!
  5. Oh yeah. Didn't watch it.
  6. Where did all this stupid "a day without [fill in the blank]" come from?
  7. I truthfully am beginning to come around. I have gone through my stages with Cousins, and I'm resigned to see him go. I like the pickups thus far otherwise. I am hoping Logan signs; we might have a respectable defense if he does. As for Cousins, I still find some hope we'll be able to LTC him, and see Bruce Allen shown the door. But I'll be okay if not. If a good defense results from all this turmoil, I'll be happy, because I prefer defense to offense anyway. I've used a lot of 'ifs'. But no-one can tell the future. And no player, not even Kirk Cousins, is bigger than the team. If he thinks he is, then perhaps it IS time for him to move the hell on.
  8. You know, this has to be the most depressing offseason I've ever seen in my 36 years as a Redskins fan. It appears that someone has made things so toxic, that we can't even have the chance to build upon two winning seasons in a row. I have not been as demoralized; even in the years coming off of 4-12 and 5-11 seasons. Garcon wanted a trade last year; when I'd heard that part of me was going "fine, get the **** on then". Then DJax escapes. We have young pass catchers, so I'm not terribly worried. McG having problems? WTF is going on up there? Now I read that the guy we drafted, who had a chance to be an all-time good qb, who is all over the teams qb records despite only 2 real years as started, wants out??? I hate the Shanahans, but I have to wonder if we'd be in better shape if Snyder and Allen had just ****ing listened to them and just drafted a different quarterback in 2012 than Griffin. I was born in DC, so that explains my attachment to the Redskins. My baseball team, the Chicago Cubs, is more because I was forced to watch their games after school when we moved; I didn't realize how much they sucked until it was too late. I've been a Cubs fan for 34 years at least. Well, it so happens the lovable loser Cubbies are now the world champs, and it seems will be competing for years to come. At this point, I'm pretty close to being done with the Skins. I want to finally put all my fan energies behind some actual champions for a change. I hope I'm wrong, but wow. What a cluster****!
  9. Hold on, I'm not sold. Manusky's resume isn't terribly impressive. We needed a clean break from the Haslett-Barry philosophy. The die is cast, however. So we must give him a chance.
  10. HAIL YEAHHHH BABY!!!!!!!!!! Joe Barry: "Well, it's over. You won't have me to kick around anymore!" Us:
  11. That unfortunately is the most likely scenario. If he keeps Barry, he is automatically on the hot seat in 2017. New coaching staff in 2018 if they don't improve dramatically. Gruden could save face for next season if he cans Barry, and barring a collapse next year won't see a warm seat until 2018 at the earliest.
