    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    The 2nd half of my sentence was why I posted, though lol...

    Does anyone proofread any more?

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Thank yew...I'm not here nearly as much as I used to be, so my gif game needs to be on-point lol...

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    What would have been the correct way to handle the "Trent Williams problem" that would have dissuaded Dunbar from requesting to be traded or released?
  5. Yeah, that ain't happening lol...

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    This place will be interesting if Williams is extended an given a raise, and then proceeds to play like a shell of his former self and then becomes injured again. I saw what happened around here when Scherff had mediocre games and then went on IR...and he was still on his rookie contract. It won't be pretty lol...
  7. There are some seriously ignorant posters on twitter coming out because of this...
  8. That's what I was thinking, too. This article is rather dull, to be honest. I could write a better one lol...then again, I'm guessing it's meant to be filler to give the fans something to possibly get hyped about between now and the start of free agency, so saying fan-favorite McLaurin expects huge production from fan-hopeful Chase Young basically writes itself.

    It seems like the team is indeed being built around the young guys drafted over the last 3 years. Especially the front 7...I don't think retaining Kerrigan negates that.
  10. Don't know if this was posted, but this video gives some additional insight into Rivera and his time with the Panthers:

  12. Since the rankings are based on the "wins above replacement" metric, I'm not sure simply having rookies get more playing time would be enough to rank a team as #1.
  13. That's because the narrative BEFORE the game was completely different. Same thing happened when Cousins won in the wildcard round. You think that if Rodgers won in the wildcard round there would be all the articles filled with glowing praise about him winning? No. Because Rodgers winning a wildcard game is old news in his career...it wouldn't mean much of anything, wouldn't be a story...just "Rodgers being Rodgers". The narrative before the game would not have been that he rarely beats good teams or wins in high-pressure games...which was the narrative for Cousins. That tends to go away once you've won a Super Bowl and have made it to the NFC Championship game several times. When you've done that, the story becomes how good the defense must have been to have made a QB like that so ineffective through much of the game.

    it's been 6 years and 3 teams since the son was part of this franchise and the father hasn't done jack **** since leaving. It's time to retire that narrative.

    Right now Garoppolo has thrown a total of 25 passes in two playoff games for 179 yards...and is probably on his way to the Super Bowl.

    I take it you never watched Community lol...
  17. You can play fast and loose with the definition of "comedy" lol...it can also be a dialogue segment instead of one line. Anyway, I'm gonna see if I can guess the movie and see how well I do--everyone else can guess too, obviously. And they don't have to be the funniest lines, can be any line...although try to at least make it a line that would be specific to the movie you're quoting and one that you found funny (since it's comedies we're quoting). Also, if you're guessing don't google the answers lol... I'll start with a few... "Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?" *************** Person 1: Now, tell me how you are going to introduce yourself. Person 2: What? Oh, well, I'll probably say something like "Hello there, Mr Larrabee. I'm Howard." Person 1: You are not. Person 2: "I am not Howard..." Person 1: You are not going to say "Hi, my name's Howard." Anyone could say that! Anyone! Person 2: Anyone named Howard. *************** "Han Solo ain't never had no sex with Princess Leia in the Star War."

    We’re sitting pretty here guys.

    Very few--if any--teams consider drafted players a final puzzle piece for anything. Drafted players, no matter the round, are always viewed in reference to their long-term prospects. They look at drafted players as a relatively cheap way of bringing in young talent that (hopefully) will develop into a blue-chip player by the time they need to decide on paying them more...a LOT more. Plus, by moving up to draft Sweat in the 1st, they get to use the 5th year option on him should he turn out to be as good as they predicted. Neither Sweat or Haskins needed to be incredible right off the bat in order for drafting them in the 1st to be a wise decision.
  19. That's a good idea...(yeah, I got all of yours wrong lol). I think everyone should put the answers in spoiler text in their posts. Just added my answers to mine.
  20. Dammit, I know this one....what the hell is it, though lol... Um....Hateful 8? Wolf of Wall St.? 1. Another one I know I've heard before... 2. Drawing a blank 3. Burn After Reading? (never saw this movie, for the record)
