The Redskins are on the field for the afternoon practice, wearing shorts and shells.

No way I could get through the "guts out" posting, but I did read through all the threads recently. [Note: RI readers are spoiled ... I was only gone 5 days and there must have been 25-30 new threads! I smell football.]

So, in my not reading the posts, did everyone else start using "fabini" as a verb to refer to the action of uncontrollable upchuckage?

Not really. The starters will work as much in five games as they would have in four. It gives the rookies more experience. Hell, they'll be veterans by the 15th game instead of the 16th, and will be second year guys in the playoffs.

Yeah, cL, can't understand why they didn't just give the Hall of Fame game teams a bye week instead of forcing them to play five preseason games apiece. In that scenario, the league could just pay the team that's losing revenue by forgoing one preseason home game (since it's all about revenue).

Four exhibition games is ridiculous enough... five is just plain cruel, to the team and to the fans.

COWBOYS CAUGHT IN EARTHQUAKE
Posted by Mike Florio on July 29, 2008, 3:50 p.m. EDT
When a team moves its training camp from Texas to California, the team accepts all the things, good and bad, that go with being in California.

In the case of the Dallas Cowboys, the bad includes an earthquake, which struck on Tuesday.

It was a 5.8 on the Richter scale, and the Cowboys were on the fringes of the shaking at their camp in Oxnard.

Writes Tim McMahon of the Dallas Morning News: "All the sudden, I had a sensation of the ground swaying a little bit. I looked to my left to see if Todd Archer felt the same thing, and his eyes were about the size of dinner plates. The trees and light poles rocked back and forth a bit, and then it was over."

We had a Blades (A 5.4 earthquake)

Yeah, we're all fine. Just a little shaker. Media's going nutz, trying to find victims. so far, all they got is a water main busted. A clock fell off a bookcase in our house. I expect about ten live trucks and a some anchors momentarily.

I was sitting in my car when it happened. Thaought a VEEEEERRRRYYYY Big truck was rumbling by, finally figured it out.

Back in the Biggie of '94, we were 6-7 miles from the Epicenter and it shook like a Sumbeeyotch. Still the only things broken were some CD cases and a half bottle of rum. I blame myself for losing the rum.

Hope it scared the Bejabbers out of those be-starred pukes working out in Oxnard, CA.

Yeah, 5 pre-season games is ridiculous in this day and age. Here are some changes I'd like to see the NFL make...

1) 3 pre season games, 17 reg season games

2) Any end zone celebration with props should be penalized

3) crack down on offensive PI

4) that timeout to freeze the kicker crap

5) Fox should show a picture of Pam Oliver from the waist down...man she's Phat!!!

I know what chiseled means (though sculpture didn't work out so well for Tyler Ecker), but now I'm just hoping that we have at least two of the big three (Samuels, Jansen, Heyer) healthy for the entire season. Frankly, I'm hoping that Heyer doesn't just push Jansen, but that he pushes Samuels too! Nothing wrong with having a Pro-Bowler (he's former All-Pro too, right?) as the target for your goals.

"CLEMONS HOSPITALIZED WITH HEAT EXHAUSTION
Posted by Mike Florio on July 29, 2008, 11:51 a.m.

Eagles defensive end Chris Clemons, a free-agent acquisition from the Raiders in the offseason, has been taken to a hospital with heat exhaustion, according to media reports.

Clemons initially was carted off the field and given an IV. An ambulance arrived roughly an hour later. At 11:27 a.m., the ambulance left the team's training camp with Clemons inside.

Though Clemons appeared to be conscious when he left the field, his status when the ambulance took him to the hospital is unknown.

Coach Andy Reid accompanied Clemons to the hospital, trailing the ambulance in an SUV with team security director Butch Buchianco.

" ... -- a zero on the verisimilitude scale."

There's that word again.

To 4th, I totally remember Edell Sheppard. Refs robbed him of a receiving TD in the playoff game (2005?) ... too bad for him (ha HA) ... then he punished us in 2006. I wondered why the Skins didn't target him when they were looking to get taller this offseason. Admittedly, Sheppard is no Chad Johnson or Anquan Boldin, but he does still have upside ... unlike Taylor Jacobs.

I'm excited for his prospects too, but if Heyer's anywhere near where he was during that playoff game, he still has a LONG way to go before he catches Jansen (healthy), let alone Samuels. I can't shake the image of Kerney owning that side of the line. I still think he's at least another year or two before I'd even be comfortable having him as a consistent starter.

Personally I dont judge BBQ regions as one against eachother, yet enjoy each take for their own individual charms and contributions to the best food on earth....

It's like choosing between blondes, brunettes or red heads. Nothing wrong with none of them. The best one is the one you're with. Even the bald-headed ones are good sometime if they got something special somewhere else.

Skinz, NYC BBQ has had a bit of a rennesaice the last few years, def better places than ACME...but they are obviously all import jobs, not locals. NYC isnt a BBQ homegrown hotbed so obvie on NC over NYC.

Sween - I agree. Competition brings the best out of everybody.

Man you guys wanna see some racism, go hit up the Atlanta craigslist Rants & Raves, straight racist venom all day long. I really thought they had progressed when I moved down here from Fairfax Co. in 96' but it still feels like 1858 down here. Very little progress. Why does the majority of the south have to play right into the stereotypes that the rest of the nation has for them.

Living in Atlanta, I have to say I don't see a difference between here, VA, MD, NY, or CA (all places that I have lived). The worst that I have ever seen is without a doubt the state of Mass.

Sween, I also like Heyer a lot, but let's not go overboard - barring an injury, he won't take away Samuels' job any time soon. I like the short term effects of Jason Taylor signing, but I also hoped that they would use some of their cap space to resign some of their young talent on the cheap -Montgomery, Heyer, etc.

Adam,
Which part of Mass. I hear Boston is bad for that, but my Aunt lives out by Springfield and they seem to have no problems, than again they have relitivly few minorities.

Everyone on the OL struggled that game - crazy loud stadium and fast track were too much to overcome.

You see how the vaunted Seattle passrush failed on the grass on the road.

Heyer doesn't get a pass, but he wasn't alone.

============================

Word is, is that RATM is playing in Denver during the Democratic Convention in August. Hopefully it'll be a warm-up for a full U.S. tour.

Actually saw Tom Morello's solo project out here in Hollywood not too long ago. Awesome show and he had a kick-ass lineup onstage with him which included: Slash, Jerry Cantrell, Perry Farrell, Dave Novarro, Cypress Hill, Steve Vai, Flea, Travis Barker, Pete Yorn, Stewart Copeland, among others. Brad Wilk tried to show up and get in but the idiot bouncers outside wouldn't let him in because they didn't know who he was. What a bunch of idiots.

Highlight was definitely seeing Morello, Flea, Travis Barker, Slash, and Cypress Hill all on stage doing "How I Could Just Kill A Man." Kick-Ass.

love the last quote:
Holmgren was in Hawaii vacationing with his wife when he got a message from Snyder marked urgent.

"I'm on vacation so I didn't phone him back," Holmgren said.

The headline that greeted him the next morning was that Zorn was Washington's new coach. So Holmgren called up his old assistant and ended up on the phone with Snyder.

"Did I do the right thing?" Snyder asked Holmgren.

"Well, it's a little late," Holmgren jokingly said. "You absolutely did the right thing. Now help him as an owner. Help him. Do everything you can to help him because you've got a good man."

A man who had been preparing for this chance for years in Seattle only to have it arise so unexpectedly in Washington.

I spent a year or two in Wilmington and I can say unequivocally that Western NC BBQ is the heart of BBQ country right around Lexington not too far from W-S.

I think we can both agree that NC BBQ > Texas BBQ however.

Posted by: Skinz | July 29, 2008 4:17 PM

Western better than Eastern?! At what age were your taste buds removed?!
