  1. Fair enough. Correct me if I am wrong but didn't this guy opt out of his contract with the 49ers? I haven't really followed his situation but I vaguely remember him opting out his agreement. I don't have any sympathy for a guy who is mediocre and a pain in the ass. I don't think there would be that much demand for his services even if he didn't come with baggage. Why is is shocking that no franchise wants to divide its fan base over a backup QB? People want to be united with the rest of the fans in their community not fight about racial stuff. If the NAACP succeeds in staging a boycott or work stoppage it would be fun to follow replacement players for a season. I remember the NFL strike and the replacement players. They were fun to watch so while I'd prefer the racial crap subsides and the season goes forward with the regular players I'm going to be intrigued if the players strike and we get a replacement player year, maybe the Skins can win...:-) Maybe they can put together a OL that run blocks and DL that is effective against the other replacements.
  2. These other countries should look at what is going on in the US and take steps not to let their racial mix change to protect the safety and quality of life of their citizens.
  3. Who Are Going To Be The Surprise Teams This Year?

    I am beginning to worry that the Redskins that don't know how to run, stop the run or defend the pass may be less able to pass this season and surprise in a bad way with 4 to 6 wins instead of the 9-11 I have been hoping for this year.
  4. As for the NFL I want to watch the game to enjoy the game and feel a part of the Skins fan base made of every stripe of person know to the planet. I don't want performers using these games as there political forum. If they want to express an opinion about the state of the world they can do it on their own time and preferably not during the season. If the owners can't keep this racial crap out of the game day experience then it is time for me to leave the league behind and focus on other things. I am tired, so damn tired of all this racial stuff. Fifty years ago when I was a child and a young teen the civil rights movement was in full swing and I watched it on tv and it looked like the problems were being dealt with and we would learn to all get along. As a young adult things continued to improve so it seemed the whole racial divide was fading into the past. Now I'm 65 and things are worse then ever and I see the country tearing itself apart. We seem to be cursed with tribal hatreds and if I was a young man I'd be thinking about moving to another country to start a life and raise a family. I can't envision a healing now because the animosity towards Europeans is so virulent and are so easily inflamed and manipulated by politicians. I can't for see a day when I America gets beyond it anymore, I'd rather my family moved. If my sons were interested in immigrating to Argentina, Australia or New Zealand now I would do it and be more confident that future generations of my European American family would be safe. All three countries have high percentages of Europeans and Christians so a hospitable society for my family if my sons ever decide to move.
  5. Game Day Thread - Redskins vs Packers

    This team is soft like the 2015 & 2016 teams and the passing game while the strongest part of this team may not be as good with without Jackson, Garcon and McVey. My faint hopes for improvement dimmed further after watching this performance. Looks like the Skins are going to struggle to be a .500 team again.

  7. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    I'd like to see Doctson get some work. Hopefully the first offense can show us something. We don't need Reed out there but the rest that can go ought to play. Right now the receivers are a big question mark and it would be encouraging if Crowder, Doctson and Pryor showed us something tonight.
  8. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    I just don't want to see the Skins pushed two weeks in a row. I don't care if they lose but I will be disgusted if the Packer's lines push the Skins around. The Ravens totally dominated the LOS and if the Skins let that happen again than I think the best we can hope for is a repeat of the last two seasons with Cousins and his receivers carrying a inept, weak team to .500 and masking the underlying weakness.
  9. Ready For A Game....

    Amen! I know the 3-4 gives the DC more options but a 3-4 is much harder to staff. It is a lot easier to fill out a 4-3 because freaks while desirable are not required.
  10. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    Amen. Physical teams have a chance to become champions. It is very hard to win when the other team controls the line of scrimmage. Baltimore controlled the line of scrimmage and the game. It is a just a preseason game but my faint hopes of the Skins becoming a more physical team in 2017 have already dimmed. Once again a physical team run up the gut and stoned the Skins running game.
  11. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    The Skins get pushed around every time they play an AFC North team. That division has a bunch of physical teams that make the Skins look like pink ponies every time. Old school power teams that punish finesse teams like the Skins. Cousins managed to pass them to victories against Cleveland and Baltimore but they got shoved around all day in those games also. No tackling practice during summer didn't help the Skins either but it just looks like the lines aren't strong and tough enough. Can't run themselves and Baltimore was able to run up the gut on them. All three strings were pushed around. SM is gone so we can't **** at him about the absence of big boy football. Gruden needs to produce a tougher team in order to rise above .500 and compete. Didn't see any progress toward that against Baltimore.
  12. Ready For A Game....

    The Skins got bullied again. A tough, physical team pushed them around, stole their lunch and flagged them on the bus. Disappointing. I don't want to hear about how much depth the Skins have because all three strings got punked by Baltimore.
  13. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    The Redskins played soft. Baltimore dominated both lines of scrimmage. The Skins were carried the last 2 seasons by Cousins and his receivers and judging by how the lines got shoved around when they weren't getting absolutely punked by Baltimore 2017 is going to be the same. The Skins got flagged and their lunch taken away on the bus. Need to get a lot tougher, they got bullied again last night.
  14. Ready For A Game....

    7 hours now. I think I'll grill brats tonight, I need the practice also.
  15. Ready For A Game....

    I woke up thinking it was Thursday and said it was finally game day and the Skins were going to kickoff today. DJD2 corrected me.... saying no they don't.....:-) The days run together now that I am retired...
