I can't be the FIRST to be sick of the relentless pimping of LaVar...can I?

"..and Greg...PFT says we're dealing AH for Mankins straight up. Can't believe you don't already have that posted..."


Don't play like this, son.

You guys play the 'fishin' game' with these mock PFT posts and those of us too stupid to notice, think it's true.

AH for Mankins is like losing a diva but gaining a real singer.

From NFC East Blog on ESPN.COM:
Outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said that Shanahan was all business after his first victory with the Redskins.

"Everything about him said, 'Been there, done that,'" said Alexander. "He's ready to move on to next week."


Ladies and Gentlemen, we finally have grownups running our organization, and I believe things are only going to get better.

Monk, a happy co-sign...good to see Shanahan act like he meant to beat Dallas, instead of that "hip hip hooray" garbage from Zorn...

Posted by: brownwood26 | September 14, 2010 8:18 AM | Report abuse

Agreed, but I have to admit that the 'hip hip hooray' was pretty cool for a hot minute, brings back clips of the olden days with good ol' George. I bet Bruce would like to see Shanahan start that up.

It's a mock post? Makes sense. The Pats would want to use AH the same way Haslett has been trying to. They may have a locker room that has straightned up a few head cases over the years, but Haynesworth is a different (and already paid) breed.

Hey Greg, Is Randy Moss' "I'm not appreciated...I probably won't be a Pat next year" locker room rant (after a nice win)causing a stink up there? I was surprised how little the rest of the NFL seemed to notice.

mcole, yes and no, you've gotta understand up front that each and EVERY presser that the pats have is taped, ask the wrong question, and don't get invited back, kind of a 'big brother' type of thing...anyway, the RMoss situation is funny because the hand-writing is already on the wall....Brady got extended, Wilfork got extended, Gostkowsky got extended, they tried to extend Mankins, but absolutely nothing with Moss...no body expects him to be back with the pats...which to me, is foolish, as then you have Welker, and nothing else...

Right Greg...and if you have Welker and nothing else, you've got nothing...dude isn't a #1 WR and playing him anywhere other than the slot is crazy.

At first I thought it was a lock that Randy Moss would be a Redskin next year, but with Shanahan here I kinda doubt it. He likes big WRs, but he likes ones that block well and don't half-ass it when the ball isn't coming to them. Moss ain't that guy...

brown, agreed, if VC were still in charge, this would already be a done deal, but THANKFULLY those day's are over.

speaking of VC, Sanchez looks awful for the jets....

I like 'Bama's Julio Jones and think he'll be a perfect fit in our offense.

But, I also don't BA will burn a high pick on a receiver in a draft where receivers will be a dime a dozen.

I'll pass on R Moss.

The bigger decision is, should S Moss be extended?

Based on what we have now, I'd say, "Hell yeah!"

Posted by: brownwood26 | September 14, 2010 8:22 AM

Well, the first on this thread, but it's a sign of how bad this thing is working for the WaPo that they keep plugging it. It's about as popular as the poster who calls himself "Albert_Haynesworth" and who, if we trade Haynesworth, will probably change his handle to LaVar_Arrington. I saw one tell the other night that pointed to one of the regulars.

Posted by: beep-beep | September 14, 2010 9:13 AM | Report abuse

Holy crap, what a game.

Was sitting in section 118, 6 rows from field. The crowd was the best I've seen/felt since the 35-7 win over Dallas.

Still can't believe we pulled it out... from the moment we took the 3 points off the board and didn't score I was sure we were gonna lose.

Such a sick feeling during the whole last Dallas drive... and such euphoria when I saw the yellow bird of misery laying on the field. Crowd was bananas all the way out to the parking lot exit.

Oh, and I LITERALLY ran into LeBron. Wasn't watching where I was going and bumped into him and his bodyguard in the concourse, who pushed me out of the way.

He took out his phone camera and started recording people taking pictures of HIM. Yeah, he doesn't think too much of himself...

You're lucky the bodyguard didn't taze you, I've seen people tazered for less.

I was straight up in love with Arrington before, during and after he was drafted for like 2 or 3 years. The more I followed him, the more I started to dislike him and eventually hate the loser.

Arrington lovers should read up on his last contract negotiations with the 'Skins and how he was big-timing everyone involved with his 'pay me or else' attitude. He always blamed everyone else for injuries, blowing assignments and ultimately his own lack of ability to learn and function within an NFL defensive scheme.

He made a couple pro bowls which are NOT indicitive of how great a player might be but rather a popularity contest based almost entirely of ESPN highlight plays. Unfortunately, Arrington LOST us more games than he ever won.

Specifially, in 04, we were on the verge of upsetting the mighty G-men and forced them to go for it late in the game on 4th down which would have ended the game. Arrington stunted in and then gave chase to the least likely player on the offense, an unknown FB, who caught a ball in the flat with Arrington playing catch up. It was later revealed that he blew the assignment and gave us the obligatory, "my bad" which even Doc Walker rags on him about to this day from time to time.

The dude had ability and stood out on a bad team mostly because of hype and alleged potential. He's a real-life dick and I know first hand that he's been a major stoner since college. Samuels, the very next pick, eclipses Arrington in every aspect of his career.

Arrington sucks.

Seriously, Punt, tell us how you feel! hahahahahaha

Yeh - I look at Arrington as a symptom of what was going on in the FO - just bad management. He was a talent to be managed and just wasn't.

The weed smokin' explains his paranoia, then; He's always talkin' someone is out to get him, anyway...

Lavar has already provided twice the analysis on the Redskins (and in particular our win over Dallas) than RI has over the entire course of Shanahan's tenure. His breakdown of Williams vs. Ware is better than anything RI has ever had up here from an analytical standpoint.

The blind hatred for Lavar is shocking sometimes.

Posted by: psps23 | September 14, 2010 10:13 AM | Report abuse

From an article in the Philly paper today (and something to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks):

"Reid created the dilemma he now faces. Vick, with his crowd-pleasing style, could win a game in Detroit next week. He could make some big plays in Jacksonville, whether as the starter or in his change-up role. By Oct. 3, the next home game, the atmosphere at the Linc could be toxic for Kolb. The opponent that day? Washington, of course. McNabb is going to feel right at home."

BLIND HATRED? Man, if that's not the pothead calling the kettle black.

The hatred - and I don't really "hate" as much as I despise - for Arrington is nowhere near blind. I have seen all of what I described above.

What's blind is the love for him by some 'Skins fans who HAVE seen all of that too but choose to ignore it.

Why? I can't make myself think that from the perspective of a moronic person so I don't know.

Posted by: No_Punt_Intended | September 14, 2010 10:33 AM | Report abuse

Got no problem with Lavar, in fact I love the guy and the haters sound like morons.

What I can't stand is the new video chat format that doesn't work for s$!t. Stick to the old Q&A comments platform.

The two stoners, Arrington and Jabba the Hut, will be off the air next year. Who can stand them? They hang up on their "fans" constantly. The same way Arrington pissed away a good thing as a player, he's pissing it away as a sports talk-show host.
