  • Dan Snyder and the XMB-5000


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The office was large and plush. The 15-foot ceilings and large windows made even the largest of defensive linemen feel small. To one side was an equally large fire-place and in the middle or the room, with the windows behind it, was the desk of one Daniel M. Snyder.

    Rain pattered against the glass of the enormous windows, and gave the night an even more ominous feel. The only light in the office was coming from the crackling fire in the aforementioned fireplace. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskin Fallacies and Misconceptions


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    I really don’t understand some of the backwards logic that Redskin fans tend to use some of the time… actually, make that a lot of the time. Here are some of the biggest fallacies that I see being repeated lately: Read the rest of this entry »

    Medium; Not Well Done


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Okay, I get it, I get it. Sure those Lions weren’t the 0-16 Lions of last year.

    Sure those Lions were only 0-2 this year.

    Yes those Lions had 16 new starters, and a new head coach, but is that the best excuse we can come up with for why we lost?

    “Well, they were a good team; better than people give them credit for.” That’s our response?

    How are we ever supposed to beat “good teams” if we console ourselves after a loss…if we justify a loss by saying “oh, well, they were a good team.” Read the rest of this entry »

    The Zorn Identity


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    I wish I could say I knew what Jim Zorn was doing. I wish I could tell you that I see some sort of wonderful master-plan being hatched in the background; but I can’t.

    Jim has lost me entirely.

    Now before you get to thinking that I think Zorn is a complete idiot; he is not. However there were some things that happened this weekend that have me really worried about his coaching and leadership ability. Read the rest of this entry »

    A Horse Walks into a Bar…


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Bartender asks; “Why the long face?”

    How many of you realize that the Redskins actually won the game yesterday? Show of hands?

    No seriously, they did.

    Yes…they did. I wouldn’t lie to you, they won.

    Yes, I know they only scored nine points, but nine is greater than seven.

    Oh sure, they naysayers are saying “same old Redskins; only scored nine points. That won’t be enough to beat our tougher opponents.”

    Consider this: Read the rest of this entry »

    Slop From The Trough 06-12-09


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    This is a new blog I’ll plan to do at least weekly starting with training camp. For now, at least, it will just be something along the lines of a Redskins notebook. I’ll be going to the internet trough and posting some of the slop that I come across that seems relevant. Feel free to comment to let me know if I’ve missed something or you have ideas for improvement.

    For now, let’s get started with LaRon Landry, Jason Campbell, two signings and James Thrash:

    The D.C. Gossip


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Oh how we love our drama here in D.C.! I never watched the Gossip Girl, but here’s how I think the Redskins would be described if you asked a teenage girl. Seems fitting because it’s not far off from how the regular media is reporting it!

     

    Okay, so did you hear that Jimmy called out CP in front of the whole world and blamed him for the Redskins entire offensive troubles?

     

    Like, OMG!!! Right?

     

    So then CP calls up this radio show and he’s all calling Jimmy a “genius” but in that sarcastic way, where you know he totally doesn’t mean it!

     

    I mean, c’mon right? I’d be all mad too if my boss had just told everyone I was a loser.

     

    So then CP is all “we never talk anymore” an stuff, and saying “maybe they should put me on IR” and all that junk, but then Jimmy says he all understands what CP is saying, and totally gets why CP would go on and slam him on the radio, while I’m all like “oh no he didn’t,” but Jimmy’s bein’ all cool about stuff.

     

    I had to lol!

     

    Totally, right?

     

    So then CP is all talking about how he feels good after not playing in the big game, and then says he’ll be at practice, and you just know there’s gonna be all this drama. I would so die if Jimmy just rolled his eyes at CP, y’know? That would be too-funny and I would just have to ROTFLMAO!

     

    I mean, everybody knows all of this is because of Jason. Do you remember last week when Jason was all “boo-hoo-hoo I’m so sad ‘cuz everyone is blaming me for everything?”  What-ever!

     

    Jason’s just mad ‘cuz all those bullies are knocking him down and not letting him do his job because those guys who he thought were his friends can’t seem to stop the bullies from getting to him? And he’s all like “I can’t just throw the ball if there ain’t nobody open!” I know, right? Seriously!

     

    So then Jimmy says all that stuff about CP because he doesn’t want Jason to start crying again, and Clinton’s all like “uh-uh, you ain’t blamin’ me for all this, I tried to stop them” and Jimmy’s all like “yeah, but you aren’t stopping them” so he goes and sends out Ladell who doesn’t stop those bullies either, but he doesn’t say anything about that so you just know there’s other things goin’ on between CP and Jimmy!

     

    So I heard that Jimmy was all mad because whenever he and CP are hanging out at practice, that CP’s all just standing there and not doing anything, but CP’s all mad because he says he’s been doing all the work, but Jimmy’s all like “nuh-uh!”

     

    Why does there have to be all this drama all the time? Why can’t Jimmy and CP just get over it and be friends? And why isn’t anyone paying attention to Freddy ‘cuz you know he’s all mad ever since everyone started hanging out with D’angelo, but everyone’s so caught up in this JZ/CP thing that they are all missing the fact that Freddy really needs a hug!

     

    That’s all for now, see you at the Mall!!

     

    Xoxo

    Get On Your Horse


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Back on September 14th, I blogged about the Redskins need to put the ball into the hands of their most lethal offensive weapon, Clinton Portis. Needless to say, the Redskins don’t listen to me, but Coach Zorn obviously agreed with the sentiment, as since that time, Portis has been busy, and he has been effective. In fact, he’s been more effective than any other running back in the league. Read the rest of this entry »
