No need to rush him back because nobody wants him back anyway.

If Redskins could just find one player -- be it a running back, tight end or maybe even a lineman -- who could block a bit, they could go ahead and retire Clinton's number already... because there's no way the team is ever going to get anything near a fair return on this $8+ million guaranteed investment in futility.

I don't care about any of this other than to say that winning is a great deodorant.

Thank God for the Vikings currently claiming the crown for the most dysfunctional outfit in the NFL.

This is also why I have a philosophy of late that I would be fine with going an entire year without signing anyone under 6'4" and 300+lbs.

What good is adding offensive skill players of the QB can't take the snap without being stepped on by his center, getting blown up by a blitzing LB, falling down on his own/not being able to get out of his own way or flat-out not being fluent with the o-system itself?

The offense will struggle this week - that's a fact. My question is whether we will blitz a lot and put a spy (LL30?) on Vick or run a lot of 4-3 to get Haney into the mix. Maybe both?

Deodorant can help our little stink, but Dallas is soooo bad they have flies hovering around them. They smell straight up like azz! And you know what? It never smelled so good!!! Keep up where Wade left off Jason!

Clinton's enthusiastic effort and great albeit diminished is critical for Monday night. This game is extremely important for any playoff hopes. I sure hope he can play and hope he sticks it to all the smug posters who call him washed up. If he can't, I will instead hope for a miracle, but I appreciate very much how hard he is trying to.

I can't wait until the best RB on this roster returns. I'm sure DM feels the same way.
