    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    What? One of the loudest voices in the Birther movement is spreading obviously false information ("fake news" if you will) about one of his political enemies?
  2. I know Haskins will start sooner rather than later, but... Can you imagine if the Redskins make the playoffs with Keenum and the Vikings miss the playoffs with Cousins?

    Loqueesha - Trailer (2019)

    It was terrible as well. See my comment on Grown Ups 2. Can you at least pick a good movie to fight for?

    Loqueesha - Trailer (2019)

    At bare minimum, would you be fine with people who are offended out how terrible it looks? Like, as a comedy or a film in general? I mean, I'm offended that Grown Ups 2 exists just on principle that it's too awful to be allowed to exist.
  5. I feel slightly more optimistic. I still think this will be about a .500 year at best, but there are a few things that give me some more hope than I had at the end of the season: 1. The future wasn't mortgaged for Haskins. Don't know how it happened that he fell to 15, but I was really worried the FO would try to trade above the Giants and give up another RG3 fortune for a QB. Whether Haskins blows up or just blows, at least there's not 3 years of draft hell tied up in the decision. 2. Related: the QB situation isn't as terrible as December. Smith is done, whether he's done for good or just done here is up to fate, but he was an expensive 1/2 year rental. Case may not be a world-beater, but he buys 1 valuable thing: the option of time. If Haskins wins out in camp and preseason, fine. But he's not going to be required to be thrown to the wolves ASAP, which could allow him to actually develop. -My ideal scenario is similar to the Giants in '04: Case starts the season while Haskins learns and develops on the bench. With the late week 10 bye, that gives a great opportunity for Haskins to come in at the end of the year and get some experience without throwing him out there in week 1 unprepared (and if our O-line is a MASH unit by that point, keep in Keenum). Plus, if Case is mediocre to slightly good, we could get some nice Comp picks for him when some other team overpays him next year. 3. Somebody realized how damn slow this team is, so there was an obvious emphasis on speed in the draft. Thank God.

    The Direct Gettlemen quote: The top comment from the article is also gold: Just gonna unpack this a bit. Jim Kelly was drafted in 1983, three years before Gettleman was hired by the Bills, as an intern. John Elway was also drafted in 1983, 11 years before Gettleman was hired by the Broncos, as a scout. Kerry Collins was drafted in 1995, four years before both Collins and Gettleman would end up on the Giants. If Gettleman wants to claim credit for bringing in Kerry Collins as a free agent, after he drank his way out of Carolina, then fair enough - but Collins is a “Super Bowl quarterback” in the same manner that a Yugo on fire is technically “a road-legal vehicle”. Eli Manning was drafted in 2004, when Gettleman was the Giants pro personnel director; however, everyone is well aware that it was Ernie Accorsi, the GM, who engineered the move with the Chargers after Eli threw his tantrum. Lastly, Cam Newton was drafted in 2011, two years before Gettleman arrived there as GM. So you can’t really say Gettleman really had a hand in drafting any of these quarterbacks. Gettleman’s only QB draftees as a GM came in 2017 with Davis Webb, 2018 with Kyle Lauletta, and of course, 2019 with Eli Manning’s Stunt Double. Based on his exact words, he seems to be either saying that he’s developed a sense of what being around a good QB “feels” like based on long-term exposure - or that he is “charmed” and that all quarterbacks who associate with him are blessed by the gypsies to succeed in the NFL/fail in the Super Bowl.

    You're going to get roasted, man. There's a rule against spoiling before the TV announcement.

    Kinda hoping for a trade down to get that 4th back, but I doubt it.

    DK Metcalf? Seahawks already took him with the last pick in round 2.

    Josh Scobee doing his best Gronk impression with that dramatic "69" reading and pause.
