  2. I missed the 3rd and was glad I did. Carolina took control in the 2nd, even if there should have been a penalty on the tying goal. They outplayed the Caps and if that’s what the 3rd looked like, it’s not surprising the Caps lost. As for the waived off goal, having not been involved in the emotion of the game and seeing it after the fact, I can see why they waived it off. There was contact and the puck went into the net. From the angles I saw, it’s possible the puck was loose, but you couldn’t really see it to know for sure. It happened so fast. I don’t blame Ovechkin as he’s doing his job. It’s a shame they didn’t get that call, but you have to sack up and outplay the other team. In game 5, they overcame a bunch of terrible calls and dominated. That’s what you have to do if you want to win.
  3. Honestly I still dont know if I support the death penalty for sure but this is for sure the type of crime I would accept that outcome in. What a terrible way to die. My biggest issue is that I dont know if any punishment, including death, really changes the problem that caused this crime in the first place.

    Sure there is a reason why I mentioned Keesean as a late rounder to look at as opposed to one of my top desires in the early rounds. You aren't getting a combine stud who was also a big time producer from college in the 7th round. Those guys are going in the 1st and 2nd. Keesean ran a better 40 at his pro day. He's 6 "1, 200 + pounds with decent size hands and wingspan. He ultimately ran a 4.53, with a 1.59 10. That's not bad. But his drill is his route running and his hands not special athleticism. I see him as a rich man's Ryan Grant. He had more yards, more touchdowns, more catches than guys like AJ Brown who are seen as animal type producers. And Keeshean has done it multiple years. No one is talking about drafting the dude early. but we do have multiple 7th round picks and IMO he'd be a good flier to use for one of them. https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/identifying-receiver-traits-keesean-johnsons-natural-hands Wide receivers with steady, consistent hands at the next level will quickly earn reliability from coaches and quarterbacks, and be the more trusted targets in pressure moments. Johnson projects as a possession receiver with a well-rounded game in the NFL because of how dependable he is catching the rock. We'll find out more about Johnson's ceiling during the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine, but his "floor" as a prospect is obvious because how natural and strong his hands are. Draft Prediction Perhaps more so than many other wide receivers in this year’s draft, Johnson represents the “what you see is what you get’ mold. He may not have the high ceiling of a Metcalf or an N’Keal Harry, but his skill set has led many to conclude that he also projects to have a pretty high floor. It’ll be easy for teams to slot Johnson in as a possession-type receiver, if not necessarily as a star, which means that he should hear his name called on Day Three.

    I like this guy in a late round. He will offer a lot of options down the line, especially if he truly has soft hands, We had a few really good HB's years ago. If this was the direction they went and the other two TE's are Reed and Sprinkle. It may take some time for Wesco to get acclimated. For this year, Wouldn't this leave our offense telegraphing pass or run like last year?
  7. I figured it'd be June when he's mired in a .650 OPS slump... How hard I will laugh when they're booing him by Memorial Day

    The Houston Texans must add help at offensive tackle, and the consensus has most of the best tackles taken by the 18th or 20th spot. If Houston wants to get their tackle, like Florida's Jawaan Taylor for example, the Texans might need to move up. In turn, the Redskins can offer their 15th pick to Houston in exchange for the 23rd spot and an additional pick later in the draft, perhaps as high as a third. At 23, the Redskins can get their pick of a number of need positions, like left guard, wide receiver or cornerback. "That's where those talents match up with the value," Norris said. That makes sense, as there isn't a wideout or guard that demands to be taken at 15, but could match the Redskins' draft board eight picks later. Maybe a guy like Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown or Boston College OL Chris Lindstrom specifically. There's also the quarterback spot. There are four rookie passers projected to be first round picks: Kyler Murray, Drew Lock, Dwayne Haskins and Daniel Jones. It seems possible Jones would be there at 23. Two other names to watch, particularly if a trade down scenario emerges for the Redskins. Norris suggested the Redskins like Maryland safety Darnell Savage, and he is gaining momentum as a possible late first-round selection. Additionally, one NFC scout told NBC Sports that he would not be shocked if West Virginia QB Will Grier sneaks into the end of the first round. Remember, first-round contracts automatically carry a team fifth-year option, an incredibly lucrative bonus considering the money some quarterbacks are making around the league. Stay alert out there - it's almost draft day. https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/if-redskins-want-trade-back-nfl-draft-one-team-makes-lot-sense

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    Here's a perfect example of a life of faith. It begins with a conclusion, everything else is a justification of proof of evil. BTW, for those actually paying attention, this is FAR from a hypothesis because in science a hypothesis is allowed to be wrong. A life of faith either 1) moves the goalposts, 2) condemns the process. Meanwhile Beth's attitude has been the cause of much pain in the world with religion condemning science causing many diseases to flourish because theology was more important than biology.
  13. Kuznetsov has been a huge disappointment, lol at Ovechkin getting ejected at the end of the game

    Keeshaun is one of a number of day three or udfa's that I have learned about and like thanks to this threads great contributors. Speaking of them I have found the most interesting discussions were the ILB. Really opened my eyes toa couple of mid round picks I wan't high on. Who would have thought a few moths ago that we could have either Sweat or Polite (they were my 2 favorite players along with Devin White) in January. I agree at this point with you and Volsmet that the 2 Bown's are the top WR's being considered in the first round. Wondering if they would take DK and move him all over the field. I hope if they end up with Haskins he doesn't get chummy with Danny Boy. Those friendships scare me
  15. Ryan has proposed several things over the years. His most consistent proposal was the privitazation of social security. "On Social Security, Ryan has in the past backed the creation of private savings accounts that would divert money from current retirees and enable younger workers to use that money to save for their own accounts. These days, Ryan continues to maintain that Social Security needs to be reformed, but he is more vague about how he would do it." http://fortune.com/2016/11/15/trump-paul-ryan/ Which would have ended as we know now it.

    Starting QB 2019???

      And what, pray tell, is coaching. I think I understand half of what he was trying to say...therefor he's half wrong. Coming into the NFL there's some college systems that have more Pro ready systems and players coming from those systems translate into an NFL teams system by coaching them into it. However, most players have raw talent and aren't coming into the NFL ready. Most rookies need to be developed, not only their talent and abilities but to the scheme and speed of the game at the next level. That's why coaches get paid so much as they have proven they can take talent to another level (i.e., Callahan). Really good top tier NFL Head Coaches can identify weaknesses in the teams roster and find players who don't do a lot of things right, but the couple of things they're good at get identified and plugged into the system to look like All Pros (i.e., Belichick). Yes, coaching includes developing players, as well as not trying force square pegs into round holes and knowing when that piece doesn't fit. I'd say they are about 3 pieces away from making that a decent bet. Edge Rusher, WR, LG might do the trick.
  17. Shocked at all the complaining about the ovie no goal..,it was def a no goal u can clearly see Ovie shove the pad of the goalie...that being said no way we lose game 7 is there?!?

    Harmon led the ACC ...his teammate Meyers was 3rd, Mitchell the Pac-12, & Campbell the Big Ten.
  19. Appropriate he will teach at the Anton Scalia School of Law.
  20. I agree 100% with John Kilpatrick on one thing. We should absolutely topple the powers that be. Starting with the executive branch.
  21. I was at a concert and I literally have not seen a single highlight...and I never will. Don’t care. Caps in 7.
  22. So for our legal experts on the board, or at least acting legal experts, how does the law work when it comes to the question of Obstruction if the President is requesting people to break the law and/or do things to stifle on-going investigations and they simply refuse? Does their refusal to carry out his requests also absolve Trump from obstruction, or does the fact that he was telling people to do things in itself obstruction? In other words if Trump is intending to obstruct justice through other people is that obstruction?
