  1. I suppose it's the young attitude to how the media works, whether TV and Radio or instagram and all the rest. Anyone recall a selfie incident with any of the great QB's now or in the recent past? Says something about the mindset that the first thing he thought to do even with time still on the clock was to get a selfie. Sort of thing one of my teenage kids would do. I noticed on the Eagles-Hawks game, the Eagles were down 3-17 late in the 4th and got a defensive turn over. The entire D ran to the endzone to do the picture-pose thing to the crowd as if they had just sealed a SB. The Eagles were losing and stayed losing. It is a mind set, an attitude that is about 'look at me'.

    Redskins vs Panthers Prediction Thread: The McCaffrey Show

    Get McCaffrey going and they just run the score with us expected to stay in a shoot-out. No chance. Skins 14 Panthers 38 Might not be that bad but they have far more offensive weapons than we do.

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

    From what I have read about the condition he has (not TW specifically but the general condition itself), in its early stages it doesn't show up anything that would concern a doctor. It can easily be mistaken for a simple 'skin condition' and it is only after some time that it shows up in such a way that diagnosis indicates that it is a cancer. I can see that as how the FO and any medical support involved will argue this. Very messy.
  4. Can't give him a hard time after one game. As others have said, he was making slow reads, an obvious one the goal line pass in to the left corner. The hesitation gave the DB the chance to break on it and knock away what should probably have been a TD. Doesn't help that McLaurin was missing. I can imagine Haskins looking for him a lot. One bit that scared me is that he runs like RG3 at times, very up right and a complete target for any LB. I would prefer not to see that happening as with what happened to RG3.

    0-6 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Well I am finally running out of games with which I can convince myself we wont be 0&5. The Giants should probably have lost last week so that is all the knowledge I need to convince me we will win The Pats are the Borg. They will crush us to the point where we will be too numb to feel the pain anymore.

    Redskins vs Bears Prediction Thread: Monday Night Meltdown?

    I still think we can win this but it will be a real grind out win, 17-10 Redskins for me and probably down to the wire for the closer TD

    I stilll think we can get a win against the Bears. As for the Giants, we just can't lose to them. That woud be a tipping point. They have one running play that works and a QB that doesn't. 2 & 3 baybee!
  8. Get them off the field on 3rd down isn't the most insightful view of football I have come across.
  9. So, coaches rather patronising summary of using AP if we run from the I formation 55 times is about to become a game plan?

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Eagles

    I get the idea of focusing the future on Guice but he seems to have decided AP is now a bench warmer, forget any kind of two-back system The quote from Gruden..... "if we have a game where we think we can run the ball 55 times in a game in an I-formation, then sure, I’ll get him up.” In the modern NFL how often do you run that? That is coach-speak for never, to me anyway.

    0-6 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Ah come on, it can't be that bad.... The Bears looked really poor in game 1 against the Packers; Giants offensive line was eventually manhandled by the pokes D as the game went on - although they have a very dangerous running back. Their D gave up 400 yards in passing. So, 'could be' 2 & 3 after 5 I reckon.

    Barton is an odd signing. Why play against the likes of Kilmarnock and Motherwell than Man U etc. He is a year and a bit off 35. Just seems a 'journey man' player type of decision for a guy that could have signed off against the top teams. I imagine he will be wound up by one or two of our stalwart Scottish premiership defenders. If Sevco's defenders don't improve he will finish back in the Championship division (Scottish not English).

    Dalglish has a lot to answer for. It dawned on me during last season that with Caroll and Suarez he was building a 1974 Scottish World Cup team with Caroll in the Jordan role and Suarez in the, well, Dalglish role! 1970's football in the 21st century wont do it. Long way to go to get this team straightened out. The Redskins of the EPL!
