    Say it ain't so Montae...

    Oh, I thought you'd been posting for awhile here. I'd like to see more facts come out but it sure doesn't look good for Montae.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Well, I guess you and me can go kick rocks in that case.

    It's a message board about a ****ty football team.

    Sheesh, keeping tabs on peoples stances from the Jason Campbell days? Tough crowd.
  5. It's getting bad, and not from a meanness perspective. It's just like Eagles and Cowboys fans are sometimes just straight up like "Damn, I'm sorry...you ok?" And it's heartfelt. I've got a hat that I wear sometimes and that's the reaction I tend to get.

    Haven't gotten that far yet. All Simpsons episodes, a bunch of other movies. You can bundle Disney+, hulu and espn+ for like 14 bucks a month. I'll have that and netflix and cancel my psvue account. Ashley Force though...

    Disney+. Holy ****.

    If it's not this week it better be against the Lions. All I really want to see is getting out of the huddle quickly, some good decision making and accuracy.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Well, now we can get a better idea of what we've (not) got. I'm 50-50. I just want to see some flashes and some reason to believe. I do believe we're in for disappointment though.

    SI: Bezos & Amazon Want In ...On the Redskins?

    It can't get much worse. I'm all for it. I'm not even sure if I really care about the name change anymore and if that's what it took to get Bezos to buy the team...well, I'm all for it. Quite frankly, it'd be bittersweet for me. I went to go visit a buddy of mine at his office last week and he's got a bunch of Redskins memorabilia in a corner and I've gotta say - and I've been feeling this way lately - it all just looked bad to me. It looks...dated. Cheap. Uninspiring. It seems like every hoodie or hat I've seen around these past few months just looks bad. I'm not sure why that is but maybe the stank of Snyder has just ruined everything for me. Like all the Redskins gear I've seen lately just looks to me as an equivalent of how the franchise is being run. I don't know how else to describe it. I used to love it, I used to think it all looked amazing. Now, not so much. That said, I don't think it happens and I think we're stuck with Snyder for a long, long time. It's unfortunate because...well, you can blast Bezos all you want, he's got his faults. IMO, most of it comes down to jealousy. But Snyder isn't a forward thinking guy, at least he doesn't appear to be. A new stadium isn't exactly going out on a limb, IMO. Bezos appears to be a forward thinking guy and I think he'd help give this franchise a much needed facelift in all areas.

    Yeah man, DM me later this week and we'll iron something out. I think @Destino will be there, too.

    Just admit it, you're going to miss them next week

    Not missing them at all. There's no DC/Baltimore rivalry. It doesn't exist. The football teams don't play in the same divisions, the baseball teams don't play in the same leagues. There's no bad blood between either of the two franchises in either sport. DC people look down their nose at Baltimore people and Baltimore people have an inferiority complex the size of Alaska. That's really where any "rivalry" starts and stops.

    Raiders suspending Antonio Brown

    Man, either Antonio Brown is headed towards being one of the most regrettable acquisitions in NFL history or he's going to blow up and everyone will forget about this by December. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27543780/sources-raiders-suspend-ab-tiff-gm I'm not sure how Mayock has done so far in his role as a GM from a player acquisition/draft perspective but he's certainly not taking any **** from AB. Also, this has to be perhaps the only time in history that the word "tiff" has been used in a headline in regards to the NFL.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Maybe this has been mentioned, maybe it hasn't. But I can't stand his throwing motion. It looks awkward as hell, right when he releases the ball and he does this weird thing where he sticks his ass out and kinda jumps into the throw. It's weird and it doesn't look right.

    What's the best flavor of cheese?

    Poll is public. Looking to see which of you philistines are going to choose American.
  17. T-shirt’s are only free if it’s a liberal in office.
  18. You forgot the travelers mugs, hats and dvd.
  19. The other issue I'd have with the Skins winning a SuperBowl if Trump were in office would be the conflicted feeling of emotions seeing Snyder hoist that trophy over his head.
  20. Which is why I'm not voting for him next year. Sure, I care and I don't like him but speaking strictly for myself, I'm not going to allow him to affect my mood each day. Again, speaking strictly for myself, I'm the one that's in control of my happiness, my mood, how I deal with any type of adversity and overall outlook on life. I flat out disagree, when your brain is in pain you can overcome it and work around it. Or you can let it consume you and derail you. To me, that's not privilege, disconnect or apathy. I could very easily watch the news way more than I do, read twitter way more than I do, log into facebook way more than I do, read any of the 5 or 6 different Trump threads on here, I could write posts, tweets, but then I'd just add to the echo chamber. Then I'd let him win and bring my mood down. What's someone going to do next, tell me something else awful about him? Tell me something I already don't know about him and what he's doing, please, astonish me with something I haven't heard before. What do I accomplish by reminding others about how terrible he is? I'm pretty sure everyone here already hates him, except twa. My friends and family are dug into their respective trenches. If you're alluding to a "raise awareness" need, I don't know anyone who's on the fence about voting for him next year. And if anyone is open to being swayed either way, I'm pretty sure there's not a post or a tweet I can send into the ether that'll push them to the good side, it'll probably just sound a lot like the others. Call it privileged, disconnected, apathetic bull**** or whatever you need to make yourself feel better, but I'm well aware of who Trump is and what he's doing, which is why, like you and the others here, I won't be voting for him next year. I suppose everyone has their ways of coping and if that's banging out post after post, tweet after tweet about how miserable they are because of Trump, well, I can't relate because if were to join in it wouldn't move me forward. It wouldn't progress my life. There aren't a lot of things I can control in life but how I choose to spend my time and my mood are certainly things I can control as well as my vote. And voting is the only real way to get rid of the pain.

    ***2019 Miracle Nationals WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS***

    They all matter. A team that misses the playoffs by a game can look back over the season and point to a game or two where they blew a lead late, thus changing the outcome of their season. It's hard to wade through all that and point to a game that they blew in April that matters so much in September since they play damn near every day, but all the games count. The thing I really like about the baseball season is that it's a marathon and over the course of all 162 games you get a feeling for who a team really is. You see them on hot streaks, slumps...and it all evens out. This Nats team is a perfect example, much has been made of their 19-31 start. Looking at the collection of talent on that roster, there was no way they should have been that bad, but they were playing like it. People were calling for the manager's head. It was getting ugly. Since June 1st? Best team in baseball. Best record. And that's a pretty large sample size. Since June 1st they showed who they really are, I believe. If some advanced metrics outside of wins and losses don't show them as the best team, they're definitely in the conversation of best team...and far removed from where they were when they were 19-31. The other thing that's great about it is...they play almost every day. There's something to look forward to for 162 days of the year. Know that feeling you'd get when the Redskins were good and you'd set aside Sundays at 1pm? It's like that every day. And if you miss a game, no big deal...chances are they'll be playing tomorrow.

    Earlier when the Nats made the playoffs i said Bryce has got to be bitter. Some of you (can't remember who) jumped on me for it. It's all good. Anyone care to revisit now?
  23. Trump obsession here is at an all time high, which is saying something. Not sure how some of you are going to fill the void if he doesn't get re-elected next year. Might have some serious withdrawl issues.

    ***2019 Miracle Nationals WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS***

    It's the one thing I hate about playoff baseball, which otherwise is the best type of playoff their is, IMO. Hinch made a decent move, just didn't work out the way he needed it to. Yeah right, you haven't been able to do dick **** for the Wizards.

    Man, victory parades should only be during the weekday when fans can skip out of work.
