  6. Things other than Redskins

    It’s a slow time on the Board so I thought I’d relay an experience I recently had flying and a great suggestion from Laslo on a flight from LAX to MIA I noticed something very large and unusual crammed back in the “Lower Class” section (Soul Plane)- a large Hog sitting in the middle seat between two passengers. Not a fat chick, I mean a real live Hog! I asked the Flight Attendant in between my customary preflight routine of two Scotch’s and she told me it was an “Emotional Support Companion”. I don’t know what it was but all through the flight I was hungry for a Milwaukee Brat or a NOLA BLT i did a little research on this whole area of “ emotional support companions” and came across a piece from Laslo on this issue. [EDITED BY MODERATOR: I'll be nice and leave the link (even that is dicey), but the text isn't appropriate.] http://iamlaslo.blogspot.com/2014/11/i-have-emotional-support-stripper.html?m=1 Lazlo is a Genius
  7. Hate to say it, but have to agree. Terrific overachiever but I can’t say worthy of HOF like a Jacoby or Jerry Smith does.
  8. He’s a good player but no where near or hear from him how great he is. I prefer the quiet confidence of a Kenny Houston
  9. Yes, Tragic- get well Barry. The NFL needs to do a lot more to help the men successfully transition from player to former player. Pain Addiction combined with moving away from a career that defined their Life is very very tough. Let’s hope the NFL will focus on this important issue instead of the stupid stuff like on field demonstration rules that divide and distract the players and fans.
  10. My prediction for who will be the top 20 players after the 2018 season concludes 2018 Prediction for End of Season List 1. HB Derrius Guice (Consensus team MVP) 2. OLB Ryan Kerrigan 3. TE Jordan Reed (because "lightening will strike twice" and he will play 16 games this year) 4. OG Brandon Scherff 5. MLB Zach Brown 6. DE Jonathan Allen 7. WR Jamison Crowder 8. DT Da'Ron Payne 9. HB Chris Thompson 10. P Tress Way 11. Colt McCoy (The Lauvau "experiment" gets Smith Killed early and then they replace Frankenstein) 12. WR Paul Richardson 13. OG Ty Nscheke 14. CB Fabian Moreau (leads team in interceptions) 15. CB Josh Norman (Jinx of Dancing with the Stars") 16.LT Trent Williams (continues his decline that even those with the most rose color glasses see he is no longer elite) 17. S DJ Swearinger 18. WR/Special Teams Trey Quinn 19. OC Chase Roullier 20. K Dustin Hopkins Just missed but important contributors Ryan Anderson Quinton Dunbar Josh Holsey Mason Foster
  11. Oh Brothers, Please don’t drink that Kool Aid! What makes a great coach? Is it being a nice guy? Pleazzzze Bill Walsh on what makes a great football coach- “The culture precedes positive results. It doesn't get tacked on as an afterthought on your way to the victory stand. Champions behave like champions before they're champions: They have a winning standard of performance before they are winners." Vince Lombardi- “Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile. Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence." Joe Jackson Gibbs-“a winning effort begins with preparation." Gruden has not shown any ability to prepare his team, especially to start the season, or during games. His in game adjustments are the worst besides Buddy Ryan’s. He has instilled a likable “Camp Gruden” grabsss culture not a championship culture Walsh references and I don’t think anybody would ever consider Gruden a coach with high standards and having and demanding an exceptional work ethic Lombardi speaks about. source: Leadership lessons that helped 5 coaches win 17 Super Bowls, Jared A. Brock, I agree, Gruden seems like a nice guy-, great coaches can be nice guys, but they have to have the other more important qualities, values and standards highlighted above. My bartender and the lady at Dunkin Donuts are “nice guys” but I don’t want them coaching my team. Of course no discussion on Nice Guys and Winning is complete without Leo Durocher -for the millennials- his teams won three pennants and a World Series, use your google machine ”T]he Giants, led by Mel Ott, began to come out of their dugouts...I called off his players’ names as they came marching up the steps behind him, “Walker, Cooper, Mize, Marshall, Kerr, Gordon, Thompson. Take a look at them. All nice guys. They’ll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last...Give me some scratching, diving hungry ballplayers who came to kill you...That’s the kind of guy I want playing for me.” Source: Nice Guys Finish Last by Leo Durocher
  12. How good can Nate Sudfeld be?

    I watched him in DC. The answer is
  13. Should we sign LG Ritchie Incognito?

    Seriously, what are we waiting for? Sign this guy now. We have The Worst LG’s in the league. I held out hope for two years that they would put Nseke at LG and our Pea Brain Trust never did. Incognito is a top 10 LG. Get your head out of your orafice and get er done
  14. well done! I am struck by the top ten on this list: 2018 List 1. LT Trent Williams 2. OLB Ryan Kerrigan 3. CB Josh Norman 4. OG Brandon Scherff 5. MLB Zach Brown 6. RT Morgan Moses 7. TE Jordan Reed 8. S DJ Swearinger 9. DE Jonathan Allen 10. WR Jamison Crowder 3OL, 2LB, 2DB, 1TE, 1WR,1DL when you think about constructing a team to win a super bowl, you have to first have a plan for who the team will be (have a plan) and then build the team by putting the pieces in place (execute the plan). The key is to build your team to the plan and ensure your financial resources and staff ate in alignment with the plan (basic business 101 stuff) We have three OL in our top ten- then we didn't have a NFL starting caliber RB (thankfully that may have changed this off-season) and we have a coach who loves arena ball and doesn't want to run the ball. So we aren't a running team. Our only receiver is 5-8 and can only play the slot. We got rid of our top 10 QB and brought in any aging journeyman whose best years are behind him. We have a very skilled passing catching TE who misses many games with injuries so he cant be relied upon when the going gets tough. Well maybe are plan is to win with Defense? Uh, that hasn't worked either. I actually think the past two offseasons have been pretty good, but I'm not sure if we have a plan and in alignment with that plan. Lets look at the Vikings- Or the Eagles, or the Pats, or the Packers or the Steelers- Its easy to see their plan- and then they are consistently building to execute the plan. The Redskins seem more "schizophrenic- symptoms can include delusions, hallucinations, trouble with thinking and concentration, and lack of motivation"https://www.psychiatry.org/patients-families/schizophrenia/what-is-schizophrenia And that starts at the top. The CEO sets the direction and identity of an organization. For 20+ years I haven't seen that we have an identity or a direction on the field. Is it as simple as our identity is to just make as much money for the owner? Or it it something different. Lets hope Doug can bring and maintain an identity to who we are going to be.

    dumbest play of all time? but this is still the funniest
