McNabb book signing Tuesday

Redskins' fans will get a first look at Donovan McNabb later this week when training camp opens and the public is invited to Redskins Park. But fans can steal a sneak peek at McNabb in Washington Tuesday, when he appears at a local bookstore to sign copies of a new book called "NFL Dads Dedicated to Daughters."

McNabb is scheduled to appear at Borders (1801 K Street NW) in Downtown Washington Tuesday at 2 p.m. DeMaurice Smith, the NFL Players Association's executive director, also is scheduled to be on-hand.

McNabb is one of more than 70 current and former NFL players who contributed to the book, which discusses what it's like to have a daughter and what men can do to prevent violence against women.

"We cannot continue to support a man who needs to dominate a woman in order to boost his own confidence and feel like a man," McNabb wrote. "I am very protective of my daughters as well as my wife. I want my family to live happy, healthy lives in a world where there are good men who treat women right."

Proceeds from sales go to A Call to Men, a group dedicated to the prevention of domestic abuse. Redskins' cornerback DeAngelo Hall and former Redskin Brian Mitchell also contributed to the book and have previously signed copies.

Happy to see McNabb signing on this important issue. More men need to stand up and say there's no need to lay your hands on a woman. Peer pressure can be beneficial in this instance.

A husband and wife were having their baby. While at the hospital, the doctor tells them about a new machine that can give some of the mothers labour pain to the father of the baby. The husband accepts and the labour starts. When the doctor transfers some of the pain to the husband, he feels nothing. He transfers more of the pain to the husband, he still feels nothing. Amazed, the doctor transfers all the pain to the husband and he still feels nothing. Their baby was born and the couple goes home to find the mailman dead on their porch

"We cannot continue to support a man who needs to dominate a woman in order to boost his own confidence and feel like a man,...." McNabb wrote.


With this statement in mind, I wonder how many of the players who contributed to this book will admonish their colleagues to give up the seedy club culture where naked 'daughters' work to make them feel great.

So apparently Cooley did an interview on The Opening Drive on Sirius NFL Radio today, and one of the questions asked was what he's noticed about McNabb so far. Here was Cooley's answer:

"1st he throws the ball real hard! He has a cannon. 2nd, I'm seeing balls that I probably should have gotten before, but wasn't ever thrown. Donovan will take chances with his playmakers. He believes in that! Sometimes I think, I can't believe he put that ball in here, but he just gave me a chance to make this play."

Clearly Cooley is a Campbell hater. All the haterz will look dumb when the Raiders win it all!!!!!!11_

We are using an _ to denote sarcasm now, right?

I hope the top story isn't, "Wikileaks releases Super Secret F*cking Football Formula"

Late Monday night a source leaked a copy of the SSFFF, reportedly for a large sum of money. The SSFFF detailed how and why the Washington Redskins will defeat the Dallas Cowboys, 28-17.

"It's a sad day for the SSFFF...Years of hard work down the drain", said iH8dallas, creator of the SSFFF." It takes the surprise away from the fans, I wanted it to be secret that my favorite team was winning the NFC East. It's like someone yelling out the end of a movie in the theater."

Words from C Cooley:

"I'm seeing balls that I probably should have gotten before, but wasn't ever thrown. Donovan will take chances with his playmakers."


Whereas this sounds like a passive aggressive swipe at JC, what I remember is that #17's tuteluge early on was not to throw INTS or take chances.

Too, he spent time on the bench watching M Brunell be the 'checkdown' king, didn't he?

Again: I believe JC will do well in the AFC (Easy) West, and put up numbers that'll earn him the payday he wasn't going to get in D.C..

Our hope should be that in three years, weren't not regretting trading him away.

'Cuz we might.

The game will now play "Hail to the Redskins" after the Skins score touchdowns at home.

Can't believe they didn't think of this before now, but glad they've finally added it.

And glad that we'll actually have an offense that will allow us to hear our fight song more than once a month.

I'm rooting for him anyway. Not just for our compensation but because he's a nice kid who got a raw deal here.

And Moe...JC got his pay day already. He got a 2 year extension when he got traded to Oakland so they'll have him in 2010 and 2011. So if we messed up by trading him and Oakland doesn't re-sign him, he'll be free to come back to D.C. in 2012.

I think the raiders' fanbase and franchise have been humbled by the failures of J Russell, et al., into accepting what we reject: so-so quarterback play.

Exceptional q-back play is the rarity, and skins' fan demand it and haven't received it since B Johnson was sent packing.

We, for whatever reason, haven't been humbled into accepting a game-manager q-back like most teams/fans do.

And I'm wondering what happens if McNabb replicates his numbers from '09 (they were abot the same as JC's).

Will folks howl like they did after JC, seeing how McNabb will be in an much better situation?

We'll see.

Hell, I'll happily give Philly our 2nd rounder instead if it means McNabb wins MVP, we get 14 wins and win a Super Bowl in Jerrah Jones' monument to himself.

"I don't care about McNabb's numbers, I'll be happy as long as he isn't as cautious as Campbell."


Trust me, I hated the cautious play, too.

What JC lacked was a 'go for the throat' gear that precluded the team from coming back or attacking when down.

It affected the defense to where it seemed to cave-in, thinking, "Here we go again," sometime in the middle of the 3rd quarter of games.

JC couldn't rally or put the offense on his shoulders and win with his arms and legs--and that is what defines the elite q-back from the game manager type.

That advantage in and of itself is why we should celebrate McNabb's arrival: he's a winner.

And he should collect victories, even if he only throws for 3,400 yards--again.

Bets on which blogger it was?

Ignoring the fear of relentless whacko political/nazi attacks I'll say Frak.

speaking of howling, the calves are on a Japanese anime run lately...

just finished Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, and Howl's Moving Castle.

great flicks for young and old who aren't inspired by Twilight.

there is always the Hardy Boys canon, gradually working through that...

Anyone notice at the end of the last thread how armchairGM made it clear that Reed Doughty plowed his wife? Wow the hatred. Anyway, like Reed a lot but Kareem is the lone Free Safety on the team and will start as such.

Unlike my second daughter, I hate anime.

However, "Ponyo" is something to take a look at if you do like that style of animation.

It couldn't have been our Cyn-Cyn. Maybe it was the Mayor, impersonating Cyn-Cyn.

Yea, hopefully things will get less testy now that the season is imminent. Lots of viciousness during this offseason.

Don't know what any of those are, but watched An American Werewolf in London the other day. Greatest werewolf movie ever.

I kid scamp.
We're only happy when we're winning iH8dallas. And that hasn't happen much.
I feel better this year than I did last year. But that always seems to be the case. Still I'm looking forward to it.

"I don't know why us Redskins fans turn on each other in the offseason."

Redskins turn on each other as there are too many indians wanting to be chiefs.

And that racist comment will end my night.

Peace.

HTTR!!!

Let me end things on a positive note:


from Dr. Suess,

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

There, I've redeemed myself.

I know dude, I was playing to it. Most of us have managed to put aside our differences up here. We all have common ground. Things will get a lot more pleasant if we start winning some games.

What do you think?

Someone took a leak in it, and everyone's throwing up crappy posts because there's nothing to talk about.

Now that I think about it, the water got warm and yellow and then suddenly you reappear...hmmm....

Just read a very well done article here on the art of playing nose tackle. Tip of the cap to the writer (Amy Shipley) for not only giving us some valuable insight from great NTs of the past like Ted Washington and Bob Baumhower, but for providing the quote that best sums up the AH situation via Fred Smerlas, a fine NT that played with Jim Haslett in Buffalo:

"Should I get a napkin to wipe his fat tears?...The public does not sympathize with someone making $100 million."

Well said, Mr. Smerlas. Well said indeed.

For Alex and my fellow Madden heads, Madden 11 will now feature a SB celebration that includes a trip to the White House to shake hands with the President. Friggin awesome...

http://espn.go.com/espn/thelife/videogames/blog/_/name/thegamer/id/5411891/obama-joins-madden-11-celebration

Between that and now having "Hail To the Redskins" playing at the virtual FedEx Field, this has potential to be the best Madden to date...

Madden is the only game they will win and they could have just said come out opening night and watch that animal Jay Ratliff from Dallas work Rabach like a speed bag if you want to see a pro play the nose tackle position. McChicken was dumped by a divisional opponent and fleeced the skins. Philly was in the playoff's and you don't get rid of your starter if you are trying to get to the next level. Fans here need to drop the pipe Rayful Edmunds left behind.
