      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the double think.  
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented double think.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.

Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

Recommended Posts

My random thot right now is this. Why do people on forums get so wrapped up in being right or avoiding being wrong, when it comes to simple predictions on game results or player progressions? I never understood why this pride in being right or embarrassment of being wrong came from.

 

I mean, in general, fans are right about some things and wrong about plenty others. Who cares? No one claims to be paid by the League on their evaluations, right? No one seriously claims to have psychic powers, right? I personally don't go around keeping notes on who was wrong or right about this or that. It's just silly to me. 

 

Anyway, very random thought, not based off of any recent comments.

Objective credibility.  Bashing people for their predictions I'm not a fan of, the medium fans typically know what they are talking about.

6-2 at home 

4-4 on road

10-6 might just make it

Hmm. 1-1 at home so far. Out of panthers, cowboys, falcons, Texans, giants and eagles, who do we take the last loss to? Id day from what we know right now, Panthers. Maybe falcons? Philly is the final game of the season so  they’ll probably be resting players anyway ??‍♂️

A shout out to Bergy, who seemed to have a great game.

 

Yup. Only small issue is that on shotgun snaps, seems like the ball comes out maybe a foot too low (and slow) and Alex has to reach down just slightly to grab it. Almost took away the timing of the quick slant to Crowder for the TD.

 

Ricky Jean Francois - nice to see him starting for the Lions D line. While I liked RJF as a rotational piece here, charity work etc  ... its nice to know he wouldnt crack our current roster

Interesting fact.

 

When the Redskins lose, articles in BHRBN hardly gets 10 clicks.

When they win, they often go way above 50 easily.

I hate having a bye week. No practice news or interview sessions fo the players ?? 

 

although Sunday I’m looking forward to kicking back and watching football with no stress. Checked 506sports earlier today to see which games are being shown in the DC area. CBS doubleheader is eagles/titans at 1 and then giants/saints at 4:30. I’m especially looking forward to giants saints to get a firsthand look at how the saints are looking, a week before we face them.

So, here’s a fun bye week thought. I was wondering last night when flex scheduling starts for the nfl, and i started wondering which of our games later on in the season could be fiexed. Either into a 4:30 game or SNF game. Wanted to get others guesses on this. I don’t think any of our games have been flexed since 2016 (week 17 moved from 1 to 4:30) and before that, 2012 week 17 Vs Dallas.

Thought 1: I'd love to hear the first conversation between Kirk and McVay when they reunite in pregame, specifically, the Redskins joke.

Thought 2: Week 4 byes are the worsttttt. Perfect timing for the Ryder Cup. So on second thought, this week 4 bye is awesome.
