In the last ten years, Take-a-House-Knee Mubarak has taken 3 billion a year for personal vices and at leaat another 10 Bill worth of US military hardware (as seen on CNN), all at taxpayers expense to keep funding the American Imperial Warmachine..This bullsh*t happens worldwide, to keep the Warmachine fat and on top of us, at our expense..We should lose the fat-a**ed fascism and spend it on football...I'm sure we could afford a Redskins team on the Moon with the money made available, and then some..

An idea that is nuttier than a squirrel turd. There is only one team whose shares are publicly traded and that is the result of what happened a long time ago in an obscure city that was desperate to cling to it's sports franchise identity.

The greater point is that a lot of the public holds athletes to a standard it doesn't have with other members of the entertainment industry.

There are people who will say they think the NBA is loaded with illiterate thugs who embrace poorly written Hollywood movies acted by performers who are in and out of rehab on the regular.

The double standard, from a sports fan perspective, is unsettling.

Posted by: MistaMoe | January 31, 2011 2:52 PM | Report abuse


I don't know anyone rejecting the NBA b/c they think it's loaded with thugs.

Now rejecting the NBA b/c it's a sham of a sport on par w/ WWE - that's another topic.

I'm sure that the same people telling their sons not to emulate Dennis Rodman are also telling their daughters not to emulate Lindsay Lohan.

What I don't get about athletes is when they act surprised and upset when their dirty laundry gets out in public - it's like some of them don't understand that they are public entertainers. The Hollywood-types at least seem to get that fact and roll with punches better than some of these athletes.

They whine and moan about how all they want to do is play (pick your sport) and that's it and why can't everyone leave them alone.

Yeah, right.

If you all you wanted to do was play (name your sport) you could go down to the local Y and find some buddies to play (name your sport)with.

What you REALLY want to do is play (name your sport) AND get paid millions of dollars doing it.

What you don't get is that those millions of dollars exist because things like TV cameras, sports writers and a viewing public are there feeding the coffers, and they decide what is entertaining and interesting - not you.

So if you want to play (name your sport) AND get paid millions of dollars doing it, then accept the fact that you are a public entertainer in public view.

Don't expect to soak up all the benefits and then cry and whine about the burdens

It's only unsettling to feebs like you. The public takes at face value what it sees on the screen and doesn't obsess about what is going on in perfs' private lives. The public insists on drug free sports performance because that is the only true test of athletic ability. Otherwise it is my chemist vs your chemist which we all know is what that farce called the Tour de France is.

MistaMoe,
I see your point, and I think there's a historical context. I suspect people expect a certain "purity" in sports because they want to compare players from different eras on an even playing field. With athletes, drugs are associated with an "unfair competitive advantage". Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire will never be as revered as athletes who are thought to be "pure".
In other entertainment, people will laugh along with Richard Pryor or Jim Belushi or listen to Jimi Hendrix, Rick James, and Eminem because there's a long and storied history of entertainers either OD'ing or blowing their brains out on a bad trip. It's just kind of expected.

Alan4 (the new old Alan4, not the eerily optimistic one), the credibility I give it is that the Skins need a QB and VY needs a team. That means he would have to re-structure his contract to make it happen. It also means the Skins could draft their QB of the future next season or later, or in a later round (wooooo hooooo Kaepernick!).

What's going to happen, though, is that the Shanahan will apply "franchise QB now" based on highlight reels ... and we will miss the chance to get the LB or defensive lineman necessary to make the 3-4 defense function.

Its a question of opportunity ... and taking it vs squandering it.

I'll preface by saying I'm not a VY hater. He seems to lack maturity, but so do a lot of pro athletes.

Now, what do you make of Casserly's statement?
“I surveyed all the NFL teams looking for a starting QB. None of them want Vince Young as their starting QB”.

That sounds like a pretty damning statement.

You can get away with it in Green Bay. Could you imagine the share holders meeting for the Skins every year, filled with rabid Skins fans that want to fire the coach, QB, and half the players every year. It might be worth it. The stock would soar just on the TV rights to broadcast the share holder meetings.

With the ebb and flow of the fickle Redskin fans and their propensity to hold their allegiance hostage, that would be the most volatile stock in the history of the SEC.

Besides, they way things are going in Washington, the team would end up a victim of a hostile takeover by the Chinese.

I wonder what the new helmets would look like with Mao on the side. We'd all have to take our shoes off upon entering the stadium and Saki would go for $5 a shot.

zjenks got it started this morning with a simple little comment:

Cam Newton, Vince Young or Alex Smith.
__________

The answer is selection "D", none of the above.

Although I'm warming up a tiny bit to Cam Newton being our draft pick - at least he was a playmaker and legitimate gamechanger in college, which is something we sorely need - I still believe he has too many flaws and uncertainties. SJK no to Vince Young - that's a very scary thought, especially in a WCO. Alex Smith would be yet another exercise in mediocrity and we've all seen that movie a thousand times around here.

After thinking about it, my solution to this year's draft is to take the best DT/DE available at #10, then in the second round, a 3-4 OLB or ILB to pair with Fletcher.

I think we ought to give our O-line another year to develop: we have big Mike Williams hopefully coming back (?) as OG, J. Brown should be improved and should be brought back as RT. And, we have Capers and Cook from the 2010 draft - what can those guys do? My vote would be to give those guys a chance, perhaps try to find a better Center via free agency (if that exists this year), and try and fix our horrible defensive front seven in the draft. I'd hate to neglect that group for the second year in a row.

We may have to take our chances and roll with Rex next year (yikes).

All of this having been said, I still think Shanny is going to take a QB in round 1 if the guy that gets him hot, whomever that is, is still there.

The kid from Nevada has a bigger up side than Newton with all that baggage or Locker.

Shanahan traded for John Beck so why not give him a ride or bring back Colt Brennan.

I pray that Cam Newton is not a member of the Washington football team coached by the Shanahans. Their treatment of McNabb and Haynesworth reflect their perception of Black players. A quarterback should be cerebral, a tactician, capable of manipulating sets of complex schemes and rely on mental acumen instead of his physical attributes. Hence, Mike Shanahan not so coded message (2 minute offense) that McNabb lacks those qualities but is dumb and incapable of executing multiple plays independently. Shanahan released information about Haynesworth’s conditioning to the press was a veiled attempt to humiliate him. A mature, emotionally health person would have handled it differently and most of all effectively. Shanahan created a maelstrom which haunted his team the entire year. That’s two of many examples that revealed the Shanahans’ immaturity, bias and prejudice

Posted by: gvaway | January 31, 2011 3:21 PM

This is brilliant. I guess between Easter Sunday (the day he risked his reputation and hopes for a good start in DC by trading for McNabb) and Halloween (the day he benched his starting QB in Detroit and sounded clumsy defending his decision) Mike Shanahan realized he was a racist who thinks black guys can't play QB.

Yeah, that must be it. Shanny's a racist. Trading away the farm for McNabb to be his franchise QB was part of a diabolical plan to bench him later in the season for a white guy in order to make a black QB look bad.

How does the fact that our captains and signal callers on both the defense and special teams are black help show Shanny's racist tendencies?

Shanny is alot of things - questionable personnel man comes to the top of the list - but racist isn't one of them.

Did anyone watch the Senior Bowl? Locker looked like dog sh*t in the Senior bowl. I'm not a fan of Newton. After watching the Senior bowl pratices and the game, all I have to say is VON MILLER out of Texas A&M. He's a monster. Monster at 3-4, 4-3, blitzing and coverage. He's exactly what we need. I know everyone wants a QB and there isn't a OL worthy of #10 pick, but Miller is Brian Orakpo, but better. Just my opinion.

Posted by: hall_j | January 31, 2011 2:58 PM

GMs and scouts don't make their assessments of players on ONE all-star game. You have players alternating series while playing with people they've practiced with for 3 days, in fact most of the scouts leave before the actual game and just attend the practices.

As far as Locker, he was better in the the 2nd half and finished 6-10. Of the first RD QBs (Locker/Newton/Flabbert) I like him the most. Having said that I still wouldn't draft a QB at #10.

That set of bones is kind of important to keep together ... but maybe that's what you mean by "on the cheap." The only concern would be that, after one helmet-to-helmet hit, the Skins would need to be picking him up off the field "on the dead."

It's why he fell to the second round.

He was widely considered the best OLB/DE prospect in that draft.

I floated the thought of giving him a run earlier in the season. If Bmore is giving up on him and we're offering no guaranteed money, then I don't see the harm.

We need help anywhere we can find it and beggars can't be choosers.

Of course if his skull is still broken, then that's a problem.

frak- I like Salas especially as a late RD pick. Here's a scout's take on the SR Bowl.

Greg Salas WR Hawaii 6011 206 32 ½ 9 1/4

Monday Practice Notes: Early adjustments were required for the former Warrior. Salas wasn’t keeping his feet. He did get his head around early enough. He even rounded off his routes. But when he was in position to make a catch, he showed very soft hands.

Tuesday Practice Notes: Had his moments and made some nice throws. Also had a number of easy receptions bounce off his hands. Must improve his route running; slows into breaks and rounds off routes.

Wednesday Practice Notes: Caught the ball very well. Fights for the reception. Needs a lot of work on his routes.

Analysis: Needs a bit of polish but starting to build a buzz about him. Showed the skills to be a third receiver at the next level in time.

I totally agree.

Salas might be like Devon Bess--a kid from Hawaii who comes unheralded into the NFL and makes his own mark.

Too, given the amount of passing that goes on today, I don't see why you'd draft a receiver high anymore.

When you look at the elite (there's that word again) passing teams in the league, not too many have 1st and 2nd rounders making up their receiver groups.

We would do well to add another 'diamond in the rough' type receiver to Austin-Armstrong-Moss.

And Salas is just such a player.

Ngata is not all that old, and starting him in a rotation featuring Bryant-Kemo-Golston suddenly makes our defense fairly stout up the middle.

We could feature a starting d-line of Carriker-Ngata-Holliday and be much improved as anyone up front who collapses a pocket, flushes a quarterback towards a crashing Orakpo or blitzing Landry.

Adding Ngata to our defense would be a no-brainer.

That is, if we have brains.

I saw where Ngata is getting the franchise tag.


1st, with the ravens having Ngata, Gregg, and Cody, there's proof that smart 3-4 teams get what position really makes that scheme work.

Yes, Phil Taylor (McClain--USF and the Notre Dame interior lineman--don't know his name) were beasts at the Senior Bowl.

Thing is, if Taylor or some other such nose tackle grades out like BJ Raji did in '09, would he prove a worthy pick at #10, round 1?

Given our needs, I'd say maybe making a reach for such a player might make sense, regardless of what the draft-niks say.

Report: Haloti Ngata to get franchise tag
Posted by Evan Silva on January 31, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Ravens “are expected” to use their franchise tag on impending free agent defensive tackle Haloti Ngata after Super Bowl XLV.

It’s the Ravens’ best option. While G.M. Ozzie Newsome intends to lock up Ngata long term, no movement in that regard will occur until a new collective bargaining agreement is finalized. This will be the case for many free agents around the NFL, so usage of the franchise tag may be especially popular this offseason.

La Canfora adds that the Ravens plan to meet with another impending free agent, offensive tackle Jared Gaither, about a potential contract on Wednesday.

Gaither didn’t play a single down in 2010 due to a thoracic disk injury in his back. His absence was considered to be one of the main reasons for Baltimore’s run-blocking struggles.

After averaging 4.70 yards per rushing attempt in 2009, the Ravens’ team average plummeted to 3.76 this season.

Join the discussion in the Redskins Tailgate Zone.


1st, it was THE EARLY LEAD.

Now, it's THE TAILGATE ZONE.

It seems like we are being encouraged to participate in forums not named RI.

This is perplexing to me, and I wonder if in those forums, the editors are encouraging folks to join in on the discussions here.

I worry about this as the Law of Unintended Consequences might come into effect, and their exhorting folks to check out other blogs might cause the slow death of this one.

Seems to me that the folks who manage those blogs should cultivate the spirit of bitterness and inanity that makes this place kinda like an Addams family were everyone is an Uncle Fester.

Too, the shifting of interest and attention causes some to not notice that since Jason Reid has kicked us to the curb, no one has been promoted to the top spot of runnin' this thang.

Well, I refuse to go surfing some other blog for entertainment.

They also will get $$$ if they are fran tagged. See below.

Defensive Tackles

2010 Official F/T Tenders: $7.003 million (F); $6.353M (T)
2011 Projected Franchise Tender: $12.749M
2011 Projected Transition Tender: $9.664M

Top 5: Albert Haynesworth (Washington), Richard Seymour (Oakland), Shaun Rogers (Cleveland), Tommie Harris (Chicago), B.J. Raji (Green Bay)

The Washington Redskins leveraged the uncapped year more than any other team, and that included superceding Haynesworth's contract, which boosted his salary number in 2010 to $24.753 million. Another reason the cost to franchise an interior defensive lineman will nearly double was Seymour being designated as a defensive tackle in 2010, a season he played under a $12.975 million "exclusive" franchise tag number for a defensive end.

Ngata, who made a measly $823,750 in 2009, should ngata be in badda shape if he gets the fran tag for 2011.

TWISI- Texas vs The Nation

Defensive Prospects

Jerrell Powe, 6’2, 320lbs (Ole Miss): Powe was regarded as many as the top NT prospect in this year’s draft, but it seems like Phil Taylor (Baylor) has overthrown that spot the past couple of weeks. So to say the least it will be really interesting to see how he stacks up against Taylor, with his performance this week. Basically Powe, is just a big space eater that can take up double teams really well. Projected Round: Late 1st to 2nd, could sink all the way to the 3rd though.

Kenrick Ellis, 6’5, 345 lbs (Hampton): Ellis is guy that I have been high on all year, mainly because of his draft positioning. He is a transfer from South Carolina (after getting dismissed from the team) and an extremely tantalizing NT prospect. And is another prototypical NT that can take up space and take on double teams. The thing I got the most excited about after watching Ellis this year was his ability to bull rush the passer, and then again this was against DII competition. Projected Round: 3rd

Offensive Prospects:
Quarterbacks
TJ Yates (UNC): Always have been intrigued by Yates, not sure why.
Nathan Enderle (Idaho): Dark horse pick, will be his second ASG after participating in the Shrine Bowl. Shrine Bowl Stats: 6-12, 45 yards, TD

Offensive Line
Zane Taylor, C (Utah): Solid late round OL prospect.

Players with Local Ties
Keith Payne, RB (Virginia)
Andre Smith, TE (Virginia Tech)
John Graves, DT (Virginia Tech)
Adrian Moten, OLB (Maryland)
