  1. Are you sure? I remember posting the story about Griffin lobbying to get the rules about shirt names changed so that he could wear RG3, and I certainly wasn't the only person that thought it all stank of marketing and a rather me-first personality. Now I love what I'm seeing from Guice but it's also true that this happy-go-lucky personality isn't going to help him when he goes through a tough patch. And all rookies do.
  2. I loved Rose. Mind you, after Hopkins missed that winner in London I would have rooted for anyone who replaced him!
  3. Try telling that to all the grid girls in motor-racing and the walk-on girls in darts who all lost their jobs because someone decided that walking around in provocative clothing was not appropriate for 2018. I can see the end of cheerleaders within the next year or two whether it is fair to them or not.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    You're better than that SIP. Speaking as an "anti-Kirker" I actually agree with you that on the field Smith and Cousins are mirror players. I'm hoping that Smith doesn't have the brain farts that Cousins tends to in pressure situations but certainly playing the game they are very similar. And that may well be what Gruden wants as a QB. Personally (and I am not sure about the others) I dislike Kirk for the whole wanting to be the most expensive player, God told me to play on one-year deals, never accepting responsibility for his actions etc.etc that just rubs me up the wrong way. Smith does indeed come across as a classy person and I am looking forward to having similar levels of play but without the circus and expecting to be paid a fortune for the pleasure. It's about character and money for me, not Cousin's (or Smith's) actual skills as a QB.

    HapHaszard's Passing

    I've been on here for years and, like many here, HapHaszard was a major reason why I kept coming back. I was always amazed at the time he spent keeping us updated. He made this message board the single point of Redskins news and I have never felt any need to go elsewhere, despite the arguments raging at times. He will be sorely missed and thank you to his family for sharing him with us. RIP Hap.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    A Steelers fan here with me is saying Bell is going to be let go. I can see the Front Office throwing money at him to appease the fan base. Probably making a bad situation worse but Smith is going to need a decent running game.....

    The Conspiracy Thread

    I've never really noticed it on TV but, seeing it live, it was frustrating how many times a flag was thrown on the opposite side of the field to the play. Yes I realise that certain calls like holding affect who the QB throws the ball too but I agree that penalties that have no affect on the play should be picked up.

    The Conspiracy Thread

    There was also a late hit on Garcon right in front of us. Think it was in overtime. Even my wife (her first game) said he had been hit out of bounds, we were amazed there was no call.

    The Conspiracy Thread

    Glad you brought this up. I was stunned. Penalties were offsetting but they restarted play at the point of the holding call on us. We basically lost 15 yards.

    The Conspiracy Thread

    Ignoring the fact that Carolina had as many penalty yards as Manning passed for, what about the un-called offside on the missed FG and the un-called roughing the kicker penalty on the 63 yard punt return? I still can't believe Carolina lost, but the refs had clearly been told to make sure Manning won. Just those two calls made a six point difference, ignoring the other BS.
  12. Sadly even the BBC is getting in on the act now....
