no one cares about yall's crappy organizations (other than the Skins)


Braves > Nationals
Bobcats > Wizards
Bulldogs > whatever crappy college teams yall got
Redskins = Redskins


also, apparently the Braves are bringing back ANDRUW JONES. The only good thing about this is that it can't be nearly as bad as it sounds! Or can it!?!

We just had a blog urging us not to financially support the Danny, and now we have a post telling us where to buy jerseys! Don't buy them!

Also, I disagree with the guest blogger about the season tickets. Giving up the season tickets would put a big dent in his wallet and get his attention. Not buying jerseys can be dismissed as a slow economy, but even Snyder can't ignore an empty stadium.

+++The “major offer” would have to come in the form of a multi-year deal, given that the Redskins agreed not to use the franchise tag to retain Hall for 2009 after they signed the former first-rounder of the Falcons on November 7.

In late December, Jason La Canfora of the Washington Post speculated that Hall ultimately will sign a deal in the range of six years, $48 million, with $12 million guaranteed.

Hall behaved and performed pretty well during his short stint with the ‘Skins. The real question is whether he has changed, or whether he merely held it all together long enough to get himself in line for his second big payday in less than a year.

In between racketball games, Vinny should read up on P.T. Barnum. “There’s a sucker born every minute, and two to take him,” he wrote.

Hall suckers senile old Al Davis into a ridiculous contract. When he gets there he pouts, quits, and gets eaten alive by receivers like Eddie Royal.

He gets cut. He goes to the ‘skins, where he behaves for half a season, and doesn’t get embarrassed. Can the ‘skins take another year of checking him out? Nope. Despite dealing from weakness, he elicited a promise not to be franchised.

Along the way, the ‘skins PO their top cover corner under 35, Carlos Rogers, who’s contract is coming up.

Now Snyder and Vinny reward Hall’s behavior with a huge contract.

Dollars to donuts, Rogers demands the same, or more and leaves.

A good character guy with bad hands has been replaced by a questionable character guy with good hands. At BEST, that's a push, not an improvement.

This stupid team NEVER learns.

I was listening to a scout discuss his lousy week of practice. 'Scatter-armed', was the term employed. 'Can't see from the pocket', was another. He looked pretty good in the game, but most scouts don't even stay to watch that.

So his draft position may disappoint his fans.

“Of the three South quarterbacks, White was the most accurate and fluid during practice. White took what he showed in practice and thrived in the game…”

I'm not saying the 'skins should draft him. But I think he helped himself. Also, oddly, he should benefit from the success of another underrated WVA guy, Slaton

I hate to say it, but I think Pat White might be just an okay pro q-back.

He was very accurate during the game and has the kind of speed and quickness that makes him a threat to scramble once the pocket collapsed.

The sad thing is that he's going to have to workout for pro scouts as a special teams/wide receiver--he looks like he'd be a good mid-round slot receiver guy--as nobody in the cut-and-paste world of NFL scouting is going to give him a real shot at q-b--he's 6'0 tall.

And guys like Graham Harrell and Rhett Bomar--who both sucked--will get more than a shot.

Pat White will go to a team that'll turn him into Hines Ward-another good college q-back who wasn't taken seriously.

Get JLC or whoever is writing to interact with the bloggers again. I miss the days when he would post in response to intelligent questions. The haters drove him off, and its a shame he actually gave us a ton more info when he interacted. In the gold age of RI he would interact more.

"psp23, here are some other undisputable facts. During Heyer's rookie season when Jansen went down the coaches moved Heyer ahead of Todd Wade after Wade started a bunch of games. The Skins won four straight games with him in the line up during their playoff push. After training camp, Joe Bugel and Jim Zorn named Heyer the starting right tackle ahead of Jansen. The Skins were 2-1 with him as a starter. He got hurt, Jansen was reinserted, and the coaches didn't put him back in. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe he gave up a sack when he replaced Samuels.

As for arguing for the sake of arguing, you've got the wrong guy. You argue with anyone who says something with which you don't agree and its clear you enjoy doing so. You've even commented about your "wins." Stop projecting.

Posted by: learnedhand1"

Alright learned, I'll try and settle this before it gets too testy. I never said I don't enjoy arguing. I freely admit to that. However, I ALWAYS back my opinions up. I never throw my opinion in without having a thoughtful reason behind it.

Regarding your Heyer analysis, I can't say for fact that Heyer gave up a sack, but I don't believe he was clean. In the last 3 games of the season, Justin Smith -- the starting right DE for San Francisco -- and Trent Cole -- the starting right DE for Philadelphia -- both had sacks on Campbell. It seems very likely that Heyer was lined up opposite those DEs when they got to Campbell, as he was the starting LT in both games.

Yes, all those things are true regarding Heyer's ascension to through the depth chart. However, Jon Jansen still started more games than Heyer when both were healthy last season. That was based on the coaches decision, and who they thought gave the team the best shot at winning.

If you want me to list off my opinion of the 40-50 better offensive tackles right now, I'll do it. Sorry I don't agree with your "assessment" of Heyer (which I don't know what your assessment is because you never actually stated it, and only attempted to refute my argument). Have a nice day.

Thecork: Perhaps you were listening to a scout in Vinny’s employ?"

I think it was Tony Pauline of SI.com, on the radio. Not sure if it was before or after the game, but definitely after the practices. Here's something from the Sports Illustrated website:

Pat White/QB/West Virginia: "Scouts who thought White could play in the NFL must now rethink that opinion. White's a talented athlete who shows minimal consistency and accuracy throwing the ball from the pocket. He is now likely to spend time working out with the receivers at the combine in February."

So guess it depends on the bloviator of your preference. Be nice if a great college player like White went on the first day, but I'm not predicting it.
