    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    IIRC, McVay was getting Goff to the line quickly to look at the defense with him and relay the play before the radio clicked off. Must be nice to have a forward thinking coach. Anyway, that's what I heard this past weekend, wanted to share it with you guys.

    I can't help it if you're a mark.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I heard on Sunday from a reporter (not gonna name names) that they're saying he's "not ready" due to the terminology of the playbook. They don't doubt that he can read a defense, make the correct throw, hit someone open, etc...where he's falling short and "not ready" is being able to relay the terminology of the play from the coach to the huddle. He doesn't know it cold, yet. ASSUMING that's true, I'm not sure why Gruden didn't/Callahan won't modify the terminology for him or better yet just really drill home a package of 20 plays that he can get familiar with. That was his question as well as mine. I agree with a lot of you, you've gotta play him 5 or 6 games this year to see what you've got. Any head coaching candidate coming in this offseason is going to want to see if they'd be able to work with him or not. He needs to have some tape so you know if he's got a future.

    "Meaningful" is open to interpretation.
  6. Guys that don't have interest in sports are ****ing weird. I'm not saying you gotta watch them, but if you don't watch AND don't play...something ain't right.
  7. Yep. Altuve taking Chapman deep to get to the Astros to the WS over the Yankees is ultimate good triumphing over evil. They are a great team built the right way. But if we're being consistent here, Osuna is in the same boat as Chapman. Scherzer vs. Cole, Strasburg vs. Verlander...unbelievable matchups.
  8. Chapman is a wife beating piece of ****. Nats are going to have their hands full, for sure.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    That gave me the feels and all, but is that a St. Louis hat he's wearing? IT clearly says Louis, not sure what the first part says. I know they don't have an NBA team or anything but...kinda odd to talk about a city you love and want to be in while wearing something that's about a completely different city. Jokes aside, glad they've identified him as a piece to build around, hopefully they can figure it out.

    Best seats @ Fedex?

    This thread is ripe for jokes As far as the club level, it's been years since I've sat there. But I remember it being a w(h)ine and cheese crowd, some of which got uppity and annoyed if you cheered too loud or made any noise.
  11. Growing up near there in the 80s/90s, I thought it was great. But I'm of the opinion that everything is better when you're a kid...haven't been beat up by life to become jaded. I avoid that area as much as I can. I don't go to that mall unless I absolutely have to. I'd imagine that it could be cool to live there, depending on which part you're actually living in. I actually drove through there one night a few weekends ago and what struck me is that it's a big hodge podge of buildings from different eras. It's very apparent to see what was built in the 70s/80s and 90s/00s. I wouldn't call it a craphole necessarily, but it's certainly not always pretty.

    2019 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Nominations

    I kinda get the Grammys...only because it's interesting to look back at previous winners and see who won and what for. But that's about as far as I go, I wouldn't start or stop listening to an artist because they won/didn't win a Grammy. I couldn't tell you if my favorite artists have won a Grammy or not. I agree, I've never thought of the music HoF that much...and it's weird to see people trumpet certain bands that they feel that they should get in.

    2019 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Nominations

    I think the whole thing is dumb, really. I mean, if you've got a chance to go, you should...as a museum, it's really cool. But to have a "Hall of Fame" for music is what's really always been weird to me. You take a guy like Billy Joel (not a fan) and I dunno, like I don't think his career is validated any more because he's in the RnR Hall of Fame. He had a lot of hits, made a lot of music that people enjoy....he's achieved a level of status that he can do pretty much anything he'd want to in the music industry, I'm not quite sure what the RnR Hall of Fame does to ensure his status as a musical legend/icon. Same with Miles Davis, I didn't know he was in it, nor do I care. Does anyone care?

    Tough, really tough. I don't know if I can say yes. I don't know if I could stomach seeing Snyder/Allen hoisting that trophy. And even though I don't really care about hockey, I probably couldn't trade the over the top joy that Ovechkin had after winning and how happy the fans were for him. Ovi had been through a lot, the fans had been through a lot. Unfortunately I'm an Orioles fan so I can't act like I've been down with the Nats all along but to see a guy like Zimmerman make it is special. Mystics, sure, ok. I am obviously a diehard Redskins fan. And I can't say I'd trade the above for a superbowl trophy. Like I said, seeing Snyder and Allen win would tarnish the whole thing for me.
