  1. Jokes aside, I really like this Johnson. (Ok, really now, jokes aside). What a cool, easygoing guy who's genuinely thankful for the opportunity he has. After the game on Sunday, he was just so down to earth, took every question that he was asked. He was given the whole gameplan, they didn't hold anything back for him. He talked about being around so much football, so many systems, nothing really surprises him. He was asked if, since he's so comfortable with learning new things, could he play fearlessly? He went "I have no choice but to play fearlessly, I was on the couch last week, I've been waiting for this opportunity for a long time....what is there to lose? What is there to really lose from getting cut so much? This is your opportunity, you take it, you take it, go with it and see what happens." To be honest, the deck is stacked against him to become something in the NFL at this point in his career. But if Kurt Warner can, there's no reason he can't. I really liked what I saw, he's mobile, he can move around the pocket and his throws looked on point. IMO, that last pick wasn't on him, he threw a great ball that Doctson could have caught but Doctson allowed that DB to get inside and just beat him for the ball. I am rooting hard for this guy. It's so cliche but this is a real underdog story and this is the exact type of dude everyone wants to root for. I hope that he can be at least our #2 next year if Colt isn't back. I think he gives us a chance to win on Sunday. Honestly, I think the Giants game last weekend is a different outcome if Johnson started. I think we would have held onto the ball more in the first half, won back some of the time of possession and kept our defense off the field. I'm not saying we would have won that game if Johnson starts, I'm just saying we might not have been as embarrassed.

    Don't need no bass! Tribute to Cliff. I think it could be my favorite Metallica album ever.

    Favorite tools?

    No, I'm not talking about any specific Tailgate posters... Tools, things you use to get stuff done and make things a little easier. It can be anything from a piece of software to your favorite torque wrench. This week I've been on a trial for and I'm not sure how I've made it this far without it. If I need to speak with anyone I send them a link, they pick a time on my calendar. No more chasing people around leaving messages. And I'm not sure why it's so gratifying to see people open up emails but it is. Certainly not a must have tool but I don't pay for it which is nice. It also serves as a good reminder tool to see an alert pop up and know someones looking at what you sent...and then remind yourself to follow up with them.

    NBCSports: Foster says **** this team and the fanbase

    I actually agree with the first part of his statement. As far as the fanbase, we've been through way too much for far too long. We've been here before Mason Foster, we'll be here after Mason Foster. I can't get mad at him for him not understanding what we've been through over the years. I don't think these guys know what's up. I mean, they might say they do but we've all been through a lot of crap together. Anyone who's been a Skins fan this long and still tunes in every Sunday has my respect.

    Yep. Forgot about his mom being a key motivating factor for that fight. Didn't know the backstory about his dad. I could watch those 30 for 30s all day. There needs to be an ESPN channel with those on a loop, just one after another.

    That Buster Douglas 30 for 30 was awesome.
  8. It's a good thing we aren't in China cause the whole Tailgate would cease to exist in about an afternoon. Man, what a bunch of boobs.

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    Clinton Dix has been a major disappointment. Really not sure why we picked him up.

    I was on iTunes looking at the new movie releases, there was some other Travolta movie on there. It's unfortunate he did that Gotti movie, Gotti and his story deserves way better.

    Who is the worst general manager in D.C? (poll)

    I went with Ernie. But no one is really wrong here.
