Rinehart on Last Year's Disappointment

Here are two words that will make you instantly click or "cybernavigate" to Dan Steinberg's D.C. SportsBog: butt burglar.

Technically, Steinz's post is about Chad Rinehart and how he struggled last year. It turns out he dedicated himself to improving and shaping up, prompting Mike Sellers to say:

"I'm just amazed that he's talking about lifting weights," said Sellers, who overheard our conversation. "I want to hear this. I ain't gonna lie, he's changed a lot since last year. I mean, there was a butt burglar or something around here that stole his behind [last year]. It looks like he's been squatting, though, so he's evened out."

Just go read it, okay?

Too bad he blows. Trust me, this guy won't make any difference this year. If he has to serve extended time, we're in trouble.

"Rinehart on Last Year's Disappointment"

Thing is, last year, the entire team failed so holding Rhino's failure up for review misses the point.

Too, last year is over.

Third round NFL picks play, plain and simple.

Get him on the field, let'em play.

Well, of course he couldn't play last year - he had no butt!

So this "butt burglar" is stealing our linesman's butts and giving it to JLo and Kim Kardashian. He's like a modern day Robin Hood this guy.

Clarke Judge at CBS.com calls Rinehart the "out of nowhere man" in his review today of the Redskins....

"Chad Rinehart is working at starting right guard because Randy Thomas is hurt. Don't be misled. Rhinehart is pushing for a starting job, and there are those in the organization who think he can win it. That remains to be seen, of course, but he looks sharp in practice, showing good feet and balance in the face of a pass rush. Rhinehart was a third-round pick a year ago but did not play, so he committed himself to improving in the offseason, jacked up his weigh to 310 pounds and is now pushing Thomas for a starting job. "We had a nice little talk with him at the end of the season," said offensive line coach Joe Bugel. "We said, 'You need to bulk up some more and get more strength.' So he went back to Northern Iowa [where he attended college] and started pounding the weights. He put on about really good 15 pounds and came back a completely different player and person. He has confidence in himself, and he's a warrior. He's a good athlete, and he's very intelligent. He's a good learner."

"..this guy (Rhino) won't make any difference this year. If he has to serve extended time, we're in trouble.."

The underlining issue is that he is the most recently drafted offensive lineman, he if he fails, well, that's some sad azzed sh!t if you're Jason Campbell or Clinton Portis.

Thomas, Kelly, Davis, Rinehart, Tryon--sounds like one of the worst drafts after 1 year I've ever heard of...You would think at least one of these five would contribute something. Truth be told, Horton, the only contributor from the whole draft, wasn't projected to play by this team. Terrible talent evaluation.

agreed but I'm just sort of satisfied with this year's draft though- maybe Vinny is learning something:

Orakpo - OK you had to take him where you did; upside is big even if he can't play LB

Barnes- This is one I definitely agree with, we need CB help (passing league now) and he can help. Best pick of the draft

LBs at 5-6: Marginal but needed LBs

Marko at 7- a year on the practice squad and you might have something

"butt burglar"?

I swear, do people know what they're saying sometimes? There are entirely too many ways to go with that one.

Today's Best Headline:

"Cash-strapped Cuba says toilet paper running short."

Fidel has been sent this suggested list of possible replacement for toilet paper:

a. The script to "Funny People"
b. Jason Taylor dolphins jerseys
c. moe's posts
d. leftover Obama "Yes We Can" posters
e. Bruce Smith's Hall of Fame speech
f. video featuring a baseball player lying about PEDs
g. Michael Jackson album covers
h. Jessica Simpson's love letters to T Romo
i. Dick Chaney's image in any form

So I take it that Funny People wasn't funny at all, am I correct?

How is it that a movie with Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler isn't funny? Then again count on two hands all of Sandler's good movies.

A better would be, how in the hell did Entourage last longer than The Wire?

I know it's two different shows, but every one of the five seasons of The Wire was damn god. To me Entourage lost some of its "whatever" after season 3. It should've went out the way they did last season, with them going back to Queens. Kinda full circle in that way.

Thanks, Smurff. That was the most insightful, balanced thing I've read in this blog in awhile.

can we hire Clark Judge to be our Beat Reporter?
