    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    Disappointing, but I'm not sure how much I'm leaning towards "eff him." I think he saw what happened with Norman, knows we're looking at other CB's, and could see with Reed how quickly your career can go away. I don't much mind him doing this in February as opposed to June. I'd like to see him stay, though.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    I see where you're coming from, and you're not being unreasonable. I just think that giving him a look is a false sense of possibility, like looking at an awesome car that doesn't run anymore and thinking about keeping it in the garage.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    Reed is my favorite player on the team, but he's not worth the cap hit or the time it takes to gameplan for a guy who's hardly guaranteed to be on the field. I love the guy, but it's time for him to go. If he's smart, then it's time to hang it up altogether.
  4. I just hope he takes this as a strong challenge rather than staying on the field to avoid the label when he genuinely gets an injury. Griffin pulled that and it ****ed us up royally (he should've been out of the game vs Seattle as soon as he threw that second touchdown). I hope Guice proves everyone wrong but doesn't make stupid decisions that derail that process. Not that he has as far as I know, but you put an NFL player in a position to prove his toughness and that's going to require a crap ton of discipline to make the smart decision if an injury does occur.
  5. I think it's bold for a teammate to make a comparison like that when the guy he's saying could be the best of the three isn't even on his NFL team. These guys are hyper competitive, so saying that really is a huge deal. Especially since they play defense and he plays offense, so when we play the 49ers and Chargers there can be a chip on their shoulders. If Young is the Sean Taylor of linebackers, that's great, I still wouldn't want to get hit by #2 or #3 at the position.

    Congratulations Kendall Fuller and Bashaud Breeland.

    Yeah, there's definitely some people acing Being a Dumbass 101 on this board (taught by yours truly) who think that what we have to say on here actually impacts decisions. I think some players read it, at least I know Phillip Daniels did when he played for us. But to be fair to the idiocy that Jones should've been replacing Morris, we always look for SOMETHING that will jumpstart us or help us turn the corner. It's been that way for coming up on 30 years. To quote Audioslave, "And on my deathbed, I will pray to the gods and the angels. Like a Pagan, to anyone who will take me to heaven." That's what desperation and deprivation breed. I mean, we're the fanbase that had members who were excited that someone could do a backflip out of a pool. But on topic, I really am happy for Fuller and Breeland. Losing Fuller in the trade hurt like hell, and getting rid of Breeland was a facepalm moment.

    Congratulations Kendall Fuller and Bashaud Breeland.

    I know it's not common for ES, but you two are in agreement. Re-read and rejoice.
  8. So it seems that every year an ESer or two goes onto college, bravely serves in the armed forces overseas, or just plain moves. This year, I have been lucky enough to find the woman of my dreams! . . . in Delaware. We're engaged and I'm all moved in to a house with Dish Network (Switching to Direct TV is not an option for her), but a FiOS internet connection. I did some research on some old sites using .Guy.'s ES search engine ( http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=007335040014827223562%3Atxxpw2r44_a ), but these threads are outdated and you can't step in the same Internet river twice. What I'm looking for is a site that I can depend on to stream good-quality Redskins games each week. With the Ravens coming up in four days, I'm asking ES to give me and some others on the site a little help. Going to sports bars is a bad option for some of us because we're either underage or will likely get a little too verbal for the rest of the Eagles-loving patrons. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Yeah man, don't Sweat it.
  10. Bro, what do you think he does that's so high-ranking? From Redskins.com, https://www.redskins.com/team/front-office-roster/larry-michael: He's the top dog when it comes to what he does, he has nothing in terms of say when it comes to what we care about. In entertainment, it's not at all uncommon for the top guy to also be the one who performs (remember, it's a performance). After all, he is his own brand and we're not his first rodeo. His play-by-play is what it needs to be, which is fine. He's not going to be Merrill Reese, but he doesn't need to be. I can't even believe we're talking about this. What a good sign when THIS is what we're debating! #highfive
  11. I've met Larry Michael four or five times. He's got no ego, he's genuine, he really does care about the team, and he does his job which is to literally be the voice of the team. Meaning he says what the team wants him to say because that's what voices do, they're paid to speak whatever the team wants, not take a Jerry Brewer-type objective view. Before I met him, I thought he was probably a tool. He isn't.
  12. Haven't been able to follow the Twitters, what's your source for the signing?
  13. I think the litmus test is the same as it's always been and for 20 years has failed: Lombardis. Anything short of winning a Lombardi was the wrong choice. Until we're not playing next weekend due to having the No. 1 seed locked up instead of the number 2 pick, I won't give Snyder an inch.
  14. All right guys, don't need to see the rest. It's been an absolute pleasure to be in such absolute misery with you for seventeen weeks. Here's to 21 weeks of awesome next year! #HTTR #FireBruceAllen
  15. I just don't see the history of it. Maybe from HC to a coordinator or a lateral coordinator job, but not from HC to HC. Holmgren, Reid, and then Coughlin actually did something, so I guess there's some exceptions.
  16. La-ael (or whatever) Collins, after his drama causing him to not get drafted, said that he would outright refuse to play for anyone but the Cowboys. That's the only example I can think of.
  17. Yeah people say that, but it happens how frequently? Holmgren and Reid?
  18. Oh my god throw your flags in the trash.
  19. God dammit. I really wanted the Eagles to lose.
  20. I think that's just how he looks.
  21. LOL the only coach under Snyder with a winning record was Norv.
  22. I never understood why coaches who are fired become in such high demand. Like, they weren't fired for doing a good job.
  23. This officiating crew needs to look at the god damn scoreboard and put their flags away.
  24. ??? The rushing title is whoever gets the most yards each season.
