  1. Nah, didn't mean my comment in a smart-*** way or to compare with our crapshow team...…..just that given the amount of success the Pats have had since 2014 alone (with what, 4 out of 5 SB appearances), their exploits in 2001-7, including the 16-0 season, are in a way kind of ancient history. Remember, in the six seasons between 2008-13, the Pats ONLY went to (and lost) one Super Bowl. The horror!!!
  2. You can probably make the case that the first 3 SBs the Pats won in the early 00s led by the same coach and QB as now is ancient history.

    2019 Game Day Thread

    So here is my question: Where they spotted the ball was probably at least a good half-yard (IIRC) from the marker, which makes the decision to potentially go for it a bit more difficult. But regardless of where the initial spot was, when they reviewed it...…...did they not have the option to move it at least a little closer? I thought that maybe he didn't get the first down, but I think the ball should've been spotted closer than where it was......which might have made the decision to go for it on 4th and literally a few inches a bit easier.
  4. Funny....I was at a Chick Fil-A this morning and one of the employees behind the counter had a Skins shirt on. I asked him if he gets a lot a grief for it and he said "Not really." I was telling him that I wore my Skins shirt to a late-season Nats game this year and got ribbed by a few employees at the stadium. In DC! When I go to Vegas I usually wear my Skins shirt one day because, like SIP said, it tends to be a conversation starter. But one trip I was waiting outside for a cab to go to the airport and a random guy approaches me and asks me if that was a Skins shirt I'm wearing. I said yes and he says "I've never seen anyone wear one of those!" The friends I was with (none of which are Skins fans) got quite the chuckle.

    How different was the incomplete pass by Cousins from the one by Goff that was ruled a TD?

    Have fun R2000! I've seen some other overhead pictures of that place and the pool area (solely for guests, I presume) looks pretty sweet. But just know your mood from, say, 1-4 pm might not be the best, as you're going to feel that something is just missing.

    I'm excited about the Raiders upcoming move to Las Vegas, but if they include Rocket Screen (or anything from SB 18) as part of this halftime show tonight, I might have to wish a hex on the franchise! https://twitter.com/AndrewSiciliano/status/1192573410825535488

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Raiders move to Vegas Skins move to Oakland Oakland and Raiders decide they miss each other, make deal to move Raiders back to California in exchange for Skins moving to the desert Las Vegas Redskins

    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    That season started out with a couple of ugly losses to Philly and Green Bay, but the Skins had clawed back to 3-5 with some exciting home wins against the Bears and Chargers. Then we were in Minnesota on a Thursday night (I was in Vegas watching the game) where the team was rolling on offense and looked poised to move to 4-5, but then fell apart in the second half of that game and the team just seemed to collapse after that. There have been a few of those seasons in the Snyder era where there at least seemed to be some promise mid-season, but then the final record reflects lousy. Aside from that first quarter in Philly, 2019 has been the absolute pits. I see it more like 1993 than anything, and don't see anything happening to give us at least a respectable, if not good, 6-10 that we clawed to in 1998. 3-13 is my best guess for this group.

    4-Pack Ticket Bundles Now Available! - Ouch...

    Cool Howie! Be curious to hear how they respond.

    Can probably get four seats in the club level cheaper on Stubhub than what the Redskins are asking for these. And while I appreciate the post, if an STH response is anything short of asking the Redskins to credit the difference between what they are asking for these seats and what they asked you to pay, then you are part of the problem.

    Part levity and part serious. Even though I'm not close to as die-hard of a fan as I was years ago, there's still something habitual about that three-hour time block on Sundays in the fall that one devotes to the Skins. And I don't see that changing. The talk about having two bye weeks as part as a potential 18-game schedule doesn't really sit well with me.

    I keep trying to convince myself that it would be worth to see in person how much of a horror show the atmosphere at the stadium is going to be for the 11/17 game against the Jets. But I'd probably want to sit club level and really can't see justifying paying anywhere north of $30 for a ticket.
  14. Bye week going to be as painful as it always is. Not going to know what to do with yourself without the Skins! Yes, I do expect reactions (ducks head)……………...
