Shaun Bodiford, We Hardly Knew Ye

Skins have let the young WR go to make room for DeMulling. Bodiford was claimed off waivers after 53-man rosters were set but not active for either game. Has great speed and return-ability (not a real word but you catch my drift), but with 6 WRs, something had to give.

Will be interesting to see if Caldwell plays this weekend - I think he will - and how this all shakes down for the wide receiver, who seems to get phased out to me. If Randle El keeps making plays on deep stuff to compliment Moss, and Thrash is in a lot of three-wide sets when they run the ball. If Caldwell can be a target guy in the slot on third down packages, then I'm not sure that the WR doesn't become, as the Brits like to say, "surplus to requirements."

I hope the kid catches on somewhere else, seems like a terrific story of perseverance, but doggone is it hard to stick in the league for some of these peripheral players.

We had that one kick returner/WR player a couple years back with a similarly impressive story, tough family financial situation I think it was, but he only lasted a month or so, if I recall correctly.

ANyway, good luck to young mister Bodiford.

Dik, resuming from last thread, I realize it may seem silly, but come on, the uniforms matter! The way our guys look on the field matters! If we look like clowns on Sunday, every time we see a clip from this game we'll be thinking about how we looked like clowns!

Another thought: if the original yellow-heavy uni was Lombardi trying to bring some of that GB magic to DC with him, maybe we should have worn these throwbacks in the game at Lambeau Field in week six...

Okay, I held out for The Receiver for two weeks, I had every intention of giving him three, but he opened his mouth and revealed he's immature. So immature that he's probably going to waste his football career (if you can call being a Bonus Baby a waste) and fail to live up to his potential.

Time to hit the key on this guy, or invoke the human sacrifice clause in this contract.

I hear ya. But if anyone plays better against the 'skins than against the rest of the league, it's Amani Toomer.

It will be interesting after the bye to see how well the Lions receivers catch the ball.

"Okay, still here. The only way the Redskins lose this game is if the defense plays like it did last year. There is little evidence of this but it does nag at the back of my mind that some team will figure out how to catch the ball, hit the open man or break that tackle on 3rd down and keep the chains moving.:

Posted by: bangkokben | September 20, 2007 12:05 PM

bangkokben, the reason that the "any given sunday" adage is what it is is because of freak special teams play. See e.g., me getting crushed in my whole league pool by the freak end of the SF-STL game last week. [btw, SF should be ranked as the worst of the 2-0 teams.] The part about opposing teams figuring out how to move the chains is why I worry too, esp. re: Detroit and Green Bay. Favre broken the record by moving the chains with EIGHT different (solid) receivers. Kitna (who has something like a million yards in Martz' offense) has FOUR solid guys whose roster position is actually WR. The Skins' cover-3 shell eliminates the deep ball and forces teams to throw in the shallow center of the field ... its a contain game for guys like McNabb (and probably Favre and Kitna too). REALLY increases the job task for Fletcher and RockyMac, but fortunately, those two guys are the joyous surprises of the season (Rocky Mac for getting in the backfield and Fletcher for disrupting the middle).

In other news, I pulled Suisham as my fantasy kicker, not b/c he hasn't been solid for me in two games, but because I think the Skins will do much better in the Red Zone ... leaving only PATs for Suisham, not FGs.

Nah,

Also like the red shirts. I love the satiny yellow pants buts that's because it's the first image I had of my beloved 'skins. Yellow helmets are okay for a game or two. Obviously it was Lombardi's desire to bring the magic here but in the end it killed him. Yellow only in moderation. Of course everyone here (Thailand) wears yellow every fricking Monday. I got me a yellow 'skins shirt.

"Added Wade: "We feel confident with Jason in. There are some plays we can work on, but we can work off of that tape and really improve on some things. We'll have a full week under our belt with Jason."

The veteran experience of Wade and Fabini, as well as Rabach, Kendall and left tackle Chris Samuels, should aid in the development of chemistry. "

Not to sound negative (yes, me being negative) but I am seriously worried about us losing this weekend. It would be very "Redskinesque" to beat Philly in Philly and then lose to the losing Giants at home. Plus, how many teams start the season 0-3? We were bad last season but still won our 3rd game (yes, it was Houston but STILL). Simply put, the Giants are due for a win...and they can score.

Nate, we are just of like minds today--I too am in the minority for not being overly fond of the 70th anniversary throwbacks. The arrow on the helmet was fine, but that shade of burgundy (i.e. dried blood brown) just didn't do it for me.

Dried blood belongs on any receiver foolhardy enough to stray into the path of the Reaper.

We're not going to let the Jints feel like they're in this game; we're gonna close off the deep pass, shut down the short and intermediate plays, get a little rush on Eli or Fatty, and lay the wood. I hope.

Not to take the St Joe game face off, BUT...

There have been a lot of changes to the Redskins this year that shouldn't be overlooked. Yes, there are personnel changes, but the outlook and character of the team has really begun to reflect the Gibbs tradition.

Gibbs is saying all the things after a win (making it sound like a loss), but this year everyone on the team hears him and believe him. As Soup said, last year humbled them.

The blue team will have to pull the rabbit out of a hat...they're where we were last year.

Great clip Z. That takes me back to the soccer of my dim and distant youth. The guys who played didn't get paid so much and came from a working-class background.

If a young guy tried to do something like that in a professional game grizzled defenders like Ron "Chopper" Harris of Chelsea or Norman "Bites Yer Legs" Hunter of Leeds would simply have kicked him into Row Z of the stands.

When said young man finished crying and got back onto the pitch, the referee would have told him there was 'no foul, and stop acting like a bl**dy show-off'.

The great English manager Brian Clough once said "If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he'd have put grass up there". Sums up my feelings perfectly about show-offs like this.

These next couple of games for the Redskins (NY, DET, and GB) are very important. The next couple of weeks can make or break their season, not so much froma win/loss stand point but for confidence. A NYG win means the skins will already have won 2 of the six division games by the end of week three, vital. Up next there is a real possiblity that the Skins could be facing a 3-0 Lions squad with the mad scientist Mike Martz calling plays for that very talented Lions O. The Lions have some scary receivers in Johnson, Williams, Furrey, and McDonald. We're lucky we are not facing a healthy Kevin Jones because him and Tatum Bell would have presented somewhat of a problem. And no matter what season it is, going to Lambeau Field trying to get a win is extremely difficult. The only thing that is suspect about the Lions is Jon Kitna. I believe that he currently throws a interception every 11 or 13 attempts. How? With those receivers? While it is good to be 2-0 rather than 0-2, realize a couple of things: 1) There is still 14 games left in the season. 2) In 1997 or 1996, the Redskins started the season off 7-1, to finish 8-8, and if memory serves correctly, missed the playoffs. Kevin Blackistone from ATH is a Washingtonian, and known supporter for the Redskins and Wizards, when asked by Tony Reali if the Skins are for real he answered like any loyal, smart, fan would answer. He said, "No". Ok, well really it was more of the whole its too early in the season for a team that was previously 5-11 to be considered contenders for anything. He is 110% right. People are ready to crown the Redskins when they haven't won anything really except TWO out of SIX division games. Good, quality wins, but still have along way to go to gain the all important national spotlight. I think this team has the talent and coaches to finish 10-6, a possible 11-5 recored isn't obtainable. I tell ya to go 5-11 and go vice versa the following season would have to have to qualify as one of the top 10 turnovers from one year to the next.

Lets just say when its between week 14 and week 17 and the skins either have clinched their seed in the playoffs or still positioning, then I will begin to think of them as truly an elite team that is on the rise not just as a team but franchise as well.

Yeah, not too many regulars (none I know of) are out there saying we're an elite team.
I don't think 4-12 reflects the quality of the team last year, they were in transition.
And making the playoffs the year before was kind of a fluke, no? I think the real run at a clinched playoff berth begins next year. How we stack up against SMACK's team is really the key.

Speaking of Receiver, The...

Did anyone notice when AEL went down late in the Phily game and #85 came in, on that one play that Campbell threw to him, it was almost like Campbell paused for a second, thinking "Oh my God is this the only guy I have open? Do I really have to throw to him?" before essentially throwing it at 85's direction but out of bounds?

It could just be me, but it just seemed so obvious that Campbell doesn't like passing to him, and/or there's no chemistry there. If you lose the QB's confidence, your days are numbered.

He comes what many may think is BS, but oh well here goes. Receivers like Santana Moss and Steve Smith, technically aren't and shouldn't be #1 receivers. These guys are your deep threats, guys you usually go to once you have been pounding the crap out the the defense with the running game. Possesion receivers like Terrell Owens are the guys you use over the middle and to pick up yards close to the line of scrimmage. I would love the idea of Larry Fitzgerald coming here. 1)Fitzgerald 2)Moss 3)ARE 4)Caldwell 5)Cooley. My goodness thats enough to strike some serious fear and the hearts of a secondary. Although I smaller receivers are starting to phase out the possesion vs. deep threat jibba, im still rather have one receiver that is 6-2 or taller and a reciver who is 6-0 or shorter, or taller.......

Redshirt, where is the confusion? I don't want ruin the "Black Panther Party" here but seriously, the Redskins haven't won anything. Yes a great start to the season, possible for them to have 2 wins over a NFC east opponent by the end of week three, good, but not great. There are still 4 games they have to play Cowhoes x2, eagles x1, giants x1. Can injuries prevent them from winning the rest of the games, you bet. Or how about the Skins just being the same ol' skins since 1993, need i remind anyone again about the 7-1, i say 7-1 start, to finish 8-8. No playoffs, i think. Hope I cleared that up for ya.

"My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulongerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe, with webbed feet.

"My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he accused chestnuts of being lazy...the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

"My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon...luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds--pretty standard, really.

"At the age of 12, I received my first scribe. When I was 14, a Zoarostrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles.

Cowboys are the "most valued" franchise. I'd be willing to bet that the Redskins are still the "most profitable". The fact that the Cowboys are building a new stadium may make trhem more valued but it also means that they are deeper in debt. JJ still has to put a$$es in seats to make that money.

skins were 2-0 in '05 heading to hoffa stadium with all the "adversity" surrounding the team that plays there (the gints).

players were questioning the coach, the coach didn't like the players, he was fining people like michael strahan for showing up late, on time.

and then the owner passed away and then skins got blown out 16-0. after that game antonio pierce was the best LB in the league. the greatest thing since LT. and skins were absolutely stupid to let him go.

tiki could do no wrong on the field. eli manning was blood related to archie's boy. our boy CP complaining that the gints D knew their plays (hmmmmmm maybe they were bellichoking it....).

I don't know if I can explain this well, but I will give it a try. Some comments earlier in the day made me think of this.

Every organization has a sense of its own culture. When two businesses merge, a distinct difference in the two cultures can cause the merger to be unsuccessful. Since the early nineties, I believe the "culture" of the skins was not conducive to winning. Boz noted in a column a year or so ago, that after a loss some the skins players were laughing and carrying on. He had never seen that during JG1.

I sense a change in "culture" of the skins, one that will be conducive to winning. I think it stared with the change to Jason. The "slap in the face" of last year's record also had something to do with it.

It is a difficult to change an ingrained culture, but I think JG may have finally orchestrated it. I am cautiously optimistic and hopeful.

For the game (and Diddy): "Thou shalt not kill anything less than a fifth." :-)

I agree Diddy, it is more than a little odd.

I read a dissertation once about the psychology of having too many people in the same place. That cited both Japan and England as supporting examples for the theory that such close proximity forces the development of elaborate 'manners and etiquette' to counter the fact that everyone lives on top of each other. The alternative of course being mass-slaughter because everyone feels paranoid and they want more room.

When I first came to the US I was standing in line at an airport check-in. The guy in front was talking to a woman and eventually turned around to me and said "you got a problem pal? why are you standing so f*in' close?".

I had no idea what he was talking about as or what his problem was, as I was obeying the 'personal space' definition of an European. He seemed to need the 'wide open prairies' to not feel threatened by my presence. Anyway I gave him a cheery 'f*ck you' and stepped back a foot. Well, after all, we were in Philadelphia!

Sorry guys, Mrs Redcoat told me this and I had to pass it on...

A wildlife biologist had been in Africa for many years, studying elephant behaviour. On one trip out into the jungle he had observed an adult elephant limping behind the pack. He watched the elephant with his scope and could see a terrible sore on the elephant's foot with a huge thorn sticking from the oozing hole. The elephant seemed in such pain that the biologist decided to risk his life and remove the thorn.

He mustered his courage and walked up to the beast. Slowly he reached down and grabbed the end of the thorn. With a big yank, he pulled the thorn from the animal's wound. The elephant screamed and spun to face the biologist. He stood there paralyzed with fear as the animal stared him in the eyes. After a moment, the elephant reached out to gently pat him with it's trunk and then disappeared into the jungle.

This touching moment had stayed with the biologist for many years. One day he was visiting a local zoo with his son when a huge elephant rushed through it's exhibit and stopped at the edge of the fence. The animal stared at the biologist and longingly reached it's trunk toward him. As the elephant stared at him, he recalled the tender moment shared with an elephant many years before. "Could this be that very same elephant?....It must be!" he thought. After having the animal stare at him for some time, he was overcome with a tender familiarity and climbed over the fence to get closer to the gentle beast. When he reached the animal, it reached out it's trunk and picked the biologist off the ground by his legs. After killing him by slamming his body on the ground a few times, it bashed him against a tree, then threw his body over the fence and back into the crowd of visitors.

I guess it wasn't the same elephant.

Yeah CoSkins - I couldn't take the queer eye anymore.

And Mark (in 21132), I agree with your observation, but I think that change actually began w/ the Gibs takeover and then was challenged by some outspoken malcontents last year. I belive Soups is the antidote and the 'market correction' to put the Skins back in a winning state of mind.

Down here in Miamuh we have a sportshole called LeBatard (he's on PTI sometimes). He is an outspoken proponent of 'stats' based analysis, that coaching is entirely overrated and it's only the horses that matter.

I could not disagree more. And though it is hard to argue this point with someone, as the proof can be only circumstantial and anecdotal. When St. Joe brings us to the championship I will rain this down in LeBatard's EAR! It is intention, not accident that brings success.

skins were 2-0 in '05 heading to hoffa stadium with all the "adversity" surrounding the team that plays there (the gints).

players were questioning the coach, the coach didn't like the players, he was fining people like michael strahan for showing up late, on time.

and then the owner passed away and then skins got blown out 16-0. after that game antonio pierce was the best LB in the league. the greatest thing since LT. and skins were absolutely stupid to let him go.

tiki could do no wrong on the field. eli manning was blood related to archie's boy. our boy CP complaining that the gints D knew their plays (hmmmmmm maybe they were bellichoking it....).

with all that in mind i'd like to change my prediction to Skins 95 gints 10!!!

I guess this fits too. Gomer was in the Marines. I was in the Navy. Close enough. Gomer is more recognizable so I'll take Gomer instead.

"Gomer Pyle was the simple-minded gas station attendant and later auto mechanic in the American TV sitcom The Andy Griffith Show, played by Jim Nabors. Nabors continued the character in his own starring vehicle, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. from 1964-69.

Gomer Pyle was a good-natured, naive country-boy, characterized by his childlike innocense and his pronounced accent. He originally lived in the fictional town of Mayberry and worked at Wally's Filling Station (which also served as the town's service station) where he took up residence in the back room. Wide-eyed and slack jawed, Gomer provided much of the comic relief during his two-year stint on The Andy Griffith Show. He was often awestruck by the simplest of things, resulting in the exclamation of his catchphrases, "Shazam!", "Gol-ly" and "Surprise, surprise, surprise!".

I'd have to say that airhorn sound began in the Orange Bowl when the Dolphins were at their prime. They were widely available down there because people used them in their boats.

You could always tell a Dolphin highlight was at the OB, because you Could hear those horns. And I remember the sounds when they won and the traffic stacked up outside on Le Jeune Rd.

While I'm rambling...TOTAL BS that TO got fined for doing spycam while Ocho Cinco did not for his idiotic HOF jacket stunt.

John Clayton of ESPN:

Thomas recovering: Redskins guard Randy Thomas had successful surgery to repair his torn triceps muscle and the team is hopeful he will be available for the final three games of the regular season. They will keep him on the roster because of that chance. The reason the Redskins signed former Colt Rick DeMulling over Keydrick Vincent is because DeMulling has the versatility to play center as well as guard. Jason Fabini will handle the guard position as the starter until Thomas returns.

Lately, the periodic and/or episodic Jasno bashing has turned me off a little bit about the blog. Even some regulars saying "he owes us an apology about [insert Heyer, Portis, whatever]." It gets tiring and homeristic.

That said, I believe the opening paragraph of today's article reads like an apology. I do think Jasno is a tight writer with an awesome turn of phrase. [Though it was Boswell who gets credit for "lust for mayhem"].

Jasno even self-edits the screamingly obvious, which I reinsert in brackets:

Campbell is earning respect for his knack for making good things happen on third down. "You can't be one dimensional," Gibbs said. "That's why I'm so thrilled with Jason being able to get out of the pocket and making some plays with his feet[, which is why I had to pull Ramsey and go with Brunell]."

Thanks, guys! I was actually specifically looking for the following....but I do want to find the one limerick I wrote using the word "milquetoast"


If no other team pursued a free agent, would Danny and Vinny negotiate against each other just to drive up the price on principle?
******************

Danny: "Well, looks like no one else really wants Lloyd and we only have 3 or 4 other quality receivers, so I think we could snap him up easy for a cool million or so. Whattya think, Vinny?"

Vinny: "First, I think that was a GRAND shot, sir. Simply marvelous, and might I add how great you look in those tight white shorts? As for Lloyd, I'd give him two million, plus double that in a signing bonus.

Danny: "Oh, you clever, clever boy. You just THINK you're sneaky, but I can see right through you...and those darling shorts....But I WILL have Lloyd because I think he'll make a great flex player...er, I mean, whattacallit, one of those slot receivers. So, 5 million, plus 3 million bonus, and send Redskins One PRONTO."

Vinny: "Sir, your iron-trap mind and ability to use technical football terms with ease never ceases to amaze me -- nice shot, sir! -- and I hate to presume to think I could get the upper hand on you here. But...and maybe I don't know what I am doing...BUT...I'd give him 8 million a year, 5 million signing bonus, and...get this...AND...if we don't want to pay the second signing bonus installment, we'll make the rest of his salary -- ALL of it -- GUARANTEED. Howboutthat?"

Danny: "I knew I kept you around for a reason...you're so cute when you think you've pulled one over on me. But I didn't become a multi-gazillionaire in several unrelated-to-football industries because I couldn't negotiate contracts that were complicated and intense and yet totally unrelated to the ability to evaluate football talent! Au contraire, ma petite bonne-bonne! I'll throw 12 milliion a year at him, 10 million signing bonus, guarantee the whole damn thing, produce his next rap album -- I'm hip like that -- AND,...wait for it...introduce him to Tom Cruise. Game, set, match, my little Vinbambino. Same time tomorrow? I've got a hankerin' to sign a truly outstanding back-up center-bend-over-and-hike-it-to-the-kicker-guy guy. Yeah, one of those....Latte?"

No, it was worse than that. Sometime during the 3rd quarter (at a Brunell interception? I can't even remember now) I fell off the bed. Crying (with tears) "why can't we ever beat them?"

I'm relieved to say that was the nadir of my fandom. I was depressing my BF so much that I sent myself home with five minutes left in the game (and I NEVER stop watching games before they're over).

I heard Sonny and Sam describe the first TD pass on my car radio, and forelornly, I thought "Well, at least we scored."

Then I walked into my house of sleeping roommates, determined not to turn on the TV. I turned the TV on anyway--in time to see that long bomb to Santana. I've never screamed so quietly before in my life.

Egads, it seems that once we hit the offseason and didn't miss a beat, since the blog had really hit its stride at the end of '06 and through the playoffs, Cindy started thinking big.

It wasn't ever so. It took a long time to reach 10,000 comments, something like three months. (It was the march to 10k which prompted me to stop lurking and start posting, which may have something to do with how much our collective pace increased thereafter.)

We plowed through 20k and then I think the next thing we made a big deal out of was 50k... maybe that was in May? We were doing a thousand comments in like six weeks or so. (MV Dame can keep me honest on this.) We were young and impetuous and the blog knew no bounds.

So we started debating what milestone we could reach before the blog turned one year old (August), before the Skins' season began, and then of course the conversation expanded to speculation on when we could hit 100k.

The Boren Ultimatum was always tied to hitting 100k, I think, but we wanted a fun number to hit before then, so we went with 75k and then 77,777 or something. This was only a few weeks ago, you'd think I'd remember it better, but we kind of blew right through that one as well. Someone allegedly won a prize.

And then we figured out that at our higher-than-ever pace -- never-shut-up goofballs like me, old voices returning after breaks, new voices like yours -- we would get to 100k really soon.

So Cindy, brutally tough taskmistress that she is, decided to challenge us one last time, to crank out those last 22k comments in an absurdly short window, before game three of the season.

And here we are.

This pointless screed (aren't they all?) should have been broken up into multiple comments...

I wish I could say I was that calm, dealer, but the Gmen are just bad (and desperate) enough that I'm nervous about the "overlooking" bug. Back when TMQ asked for help naming the Football Gods, I suggested Maddenos (the god of sportscasters jinxing on-field play. Ex: "QB X hasn't thrown a pick all night," but on the next play--interception).

I think Overloki (god of teams mistakenly casting their next opponent as creampuffs) deserves a mention too.

Should the Skins pull this one out, I doubt I'll feel nearly this bad going up against the Lions after the bye week.

He has been a baller, was on a good O-Line with the Jets for a long time (ever hear of Curtis Martin?) I feel alright with this dude in there...

Sorry dcsweenie but I just don't think Janso has much credibility when talking about O-line...

I remember being kind of psyched about Fabini as a backup when we signed him, not that he was a Kendall level dude but a quality backup a la Wade.

It was perplexing to hear such bad stuff about his performance during camp and all, but I don't think he would still be on the active roster if Bugel didn't think he had the stuff.

We'll see, man. Will be closely watching the right side of the line Sunday. I hope we keep running right, like we did last Monday. Take it to 'em! Keep pounding it!

No better way to build up the Wade/Fabuloso chemistry and confidence than letting them fire off in run blocking a bunch of times early in the game.

The shabingus wikipedia entry was flagged early on as a type of post that was not appropriate... something about not wanting entries for words that are not real words or words that can be widely found or something (I cannot remember the terminology they used, but I do remember it making sense, though I was disappointed). So I wouldn't be surprised if it were taken down.

And bear in mind this is a reading from a guy who's living among passive-aggressive Northwesterners, so the fact that you're kind of par for the course of in-your-face NYC behavior might be throwing my perception off.

Not sure if you guys have talked about this already but what do you think about Lavar Arrington joining the Redskins Postgame show on Comcast? He's going to join Chick Hernandez, Ray Brown and Brian Mitchell for the rest of the year. Should be interesting. Can't wait to hear what he has to say about the Danny Boy interview which will air the same day as his debut on the show. I guess he is taking Steve Czaban's slot.

I have a feeling this blog has grown into something way bigger than the wapo ever envisioned. When there were many fewer posts, Jasno had time to read and respond. Now, even on my light work days, I have to skim the posts to get a sense of what is going on. I don't know how Jasno could possibly do his job, attend to this blog and, heaven forbid, have a life away from here, with this blog having taken on a life of its own. The posters have taken over the blog, and the wapo is along for the ride.

2. The Redskins will be leading every quarter
3. I will witness an amazing fight (4:15 game means more time for pre-gaming)
4. Campbell passes for 250 and gets 2 TDs
5. 2 backs combine for 150 yards
6. NO INJURIES
7. NO STAINS ON MY WHITE COOLEY JERSEY
8. Skins go into the bye week on a euphoric high
9. The rest of the nation starts to get drunk on the Kool-Aid.

2. JC Throws 3, Portis gets 1, and Betts 1.
3. We get 2 INTs (soco and lime shots btw)
4. I get in a fight with a Gints fan.
5. I spill car bomb down the front of my white Cooley jersey (also a Sunday tradition and usually signals the start of my belligerence towards non-Skins fans)
6. Once again I pass out before the 2nd quarter of the night game.
7. We're 3-0 for the first time in a long time and Monday is a happy day!

" ... dcsween -- I don't think it reads like an apology so much as the article is a journalistic follow up to a previous story that was relevant at the time. ..."

Posted by: HaikuMan | September 20, 2007 11:07 PM

I didn't mean to say I thought Jasno was apologizing, but for the apology-demanders, it would the equivalent. I think Jasno calls it like he sees it. If what he's seeing changes, he calls that too. I disagree that Jasno is a hater or 'whateves'. I really do think he reports what he sees as objectively as it appears. There was a question on one of his chats a while ago (from someone in Connecticut) asking about what the deal was with DC sports fans whose entire football world-view focuses on the Skins, with essential cluelessness about what's going on in 31 other cities. This guy said he'd lived in tons of other sports cities and that even Pittsburgh fans (who are more loyal than Packer cheeseheads) have a more objective sense about the NFL. When I read people here Jasno-hating, I just want to puke all over my keyboard (and its not even my normal Tuesday morning hangover). When I met him (at the first blog night out), he did strike me as a guy who takes the job of journalist much more seriously than people give him credit for ... including having to DROP any natural inclination he might have to root for any particular team (hence, his overgush for soccer, and to a lesser extent, the Red Sox). Those posts with names like "FIRE THE HACK NOW" really, really make me puke, as much as I do reading the crap from ES moderator, Art (Jasno and Art have a long running hatefest, but he only called out Art once, though Art still can't get over himself).

Its one thing to "call its like you see it" and then add some opinion (see the statement about posting standards and the original blog intro), and its FINE to disagree with that opinion (even better when its explained), but there is a tone of animosity toward Jasno that is completely over the line. Do people WANT him to have an off the cuff opinion or not? The articles are devoid of that, the blog is SUPPOSED to be about opinion. I think we see few new threads b/c of the backdraft that results from having anything close to an opinion at all.

p.s. Not that it makes a difference, but Jasno and I (and that guy who set up the New Orleans stuff) were the only ones doing shots, so I do think he was hoping for someone to toss back a few at that unattended blognight out in Bethesda.

I think the manifestation of Jasno-hating is more a factor of this Blog than anything else.

People can post here without even needing to go through the most basic 'identification' which immediately short-circuits any common sense they (or may not) have had.

Our local HOA has a forum where people who HAVE identified themselves - at least a little - can post and even that gets pretty heated at times, so why would we expect people who can do "drive-by posting" to exhibit more self-control.

This is a subject that engenders much passion, after all.

Worst cocktail mix I had like that was in Frankfurt at a sales meeting. I was trying to 'team build' my guys over there at 3am, so I went to the bar and ordered 'blood clots' for everyone (vodka, bailey's and red grenadine) - the Bailey's makes it coagulate into a lump you practically have to chew on to get it down.

Unfortunately the barman didn't know the quantities and I was too drunk by then to tell him, so we ended up with PINT glasses full of this stuff - and we had two of them each.

For a long time I was puzzled that, given the level of passion about the Skins, DC only had ONE all-sports radio station. And that most of their programming seemed so tame, relative to the overheated garbage which seems to spew forth from just about every other big market's sports radio guys.

Found this bit on the intergooglewebs:

"Bushmills is called Protestant because it's distilled in Northern Ireland and Jameson is called Catholic because it's distilled in Dublin (although it's now owned by a French company). As you might have heard, that whole Catholic/Protestant thing can be a little touchy in Ireland, so some people choose their whiskey based on that rather than on the taste and quality of the whiskey itself."

My first visit to Belfast for work was late 1980s. The night before I was supposed to fly back I went into town to celebrate with a bunch of the people I was working with (Protestants and Catholics both).

We drank much too much too quickly and I (apparently) insisted that we all go back to my hotel to continue once the bars were shutting. Once we got there I decided thet we should all crash the ball that was in progress to celebrate the end of the 'Belfast Arts Week'.

I then insisted that 'everyone must dance' and wobbled out onto the dance floor at which point I saw Kate O'Mara (I think she was still in 'Dynasty' then). Apparently I barged her current dance partner out of the way and asked her to dance with me, which she rather graciously agreed to do.

We actually danced to several tunes before I gave her back to her (then furious) partner and wobbled back to my seat, where (again apparently) I went to sit down, missed the seat, fell straight on the floor and passed out.

The people I was with said I was out so far that the bouncers had to carry me to my room, which they figured out by going through my wallet to get my name and then calling reception!

I was worthless all the next day at the office and then spent the whole flight back to the UK holding back a mouth full of vomit after they gave me my meal on the plane - 'prawn curry'. I've never been able to eat it since....

Every time I went back to work over there in the ensuing years, the first thing I was greeted with was "here comes the dancing drunk!". Great people, great place, great times.

Back in my Navy days, we used to drink "flaming hookers". You need a high alcohol content liquor like drambui in a tall narrow shot glass. You light the liquor. The trick is to drink the liquid and return the glass to the bar with a flame still in the glass. A game for the young and foolish.

Cool site sween! I met Peter Gabriel a few times as his house/recording studio is in the village where I used to play cricket.

He would come down and watch a game occasionally, and more interestingly, we'd get bands that were recording there come and drink at the pub we went to afterwards.

On summer evenings there would sometimes be musicians from all over the world jamming on the lawn out back - particularly if it coincided with one of Gabriel's 'World of Music and Dance' concerts, always a lot of fun.

OK, then. My guesstimate is that the Skins stick with the cover-3 shell for Buress/Toomer management purposes (at least until Eli throws a couple of injured waterfowl), and that Shockey becomes the shallow center receiver like Westbrook was last weekend. All other things being equal, that means that Derrick Ward remains a liability on the draw.

The postgameheroes site had an observation about how Landry was used differently against Miami than he was in Dallas, i.e., that about 20% of his time on the field, they have put him in the box, but that against Miami, he was there to be a run stuffer and against Philly, he was there to be a pass rusher. Neither of those two previous games, however, involved containment of 2 deep threats, a TE, and an explosion RB (i.e., 4 guys). It would be good to get a SOLID sack on Eli (like a Sean Taylor hit) in order to REALLY turn him into Brunell, and do it early. [Though I don't wish injuries on anyone.]

OK, since it seems I have the floor I want to vent about a local Skins issue.

I live in Western Maryland, just moved here a year ago, actually from Charles County. There were lots of tranplanted Stillers fans there. We used to say that Charles county is now the southern most county in Pennsylvania. But the locals were almost all die-hard skins fans.

I went to college at Frostburg about 15 years ago. Back then, this was solid Skins country. Now, there are by far more Stillers fans with an unhealthy smattering of Ravens fans.

My question is this to those of you that live in the fringes of the DC area; are the skins losing market share there too?

I'm afeared of this for some reason.

"Washington's defense is experiencing no such problems. Opponents are 4 for 20 on third down dating from the third quarter of the Miami game. Of the 29 third-down situations they have faced, 20 times the opponent has been at third and five or longer. Last season the Redskins held a team below 40 percent on third-down conversions just four times all season and they allowed quarterbacks to compile a 109 passer rating on third down, a staggering figure. They are playing much better in those situations now, though still have just one takeaway after setting an NFL record with only 12 last season."

Which is why we should not play cover 3. Man to man on the outside.

8 in the box with one or two blitzers coming from realms unknown.

I have seen taylor 'looked off' by any QB's. they throw in front of him not behind him. GG prolly just told him "since you love to hit so much, run on the qb's arm, not his eyes and just crush the guy."

We may not have a bunch of turnovers this year, but if you hold teams to 3 and outs, what is the real difference except for defensive TD's and maybe better field position? field position would worry one, but not when we are converting on 3rd down, eating up that clock and keeping the chains moving. It feels like 1987....

Larry Bud, seems like a natural flow for casual fans to embrace a winning team... the Steelers probably added a lot of bandwagon jumpers and resuscitated some dormant fans with that Super Bowl win. The Ravens also made inroads with their SB win, in spite of their goofy purple uniforms and that messy accomplice-to-murder charge thing.

Sadly, the days of the Redskins Radio Network covering an area the size of the Louisiana Purchase are over. The Skins have a lot to compete with for people's attention. Winning consistently will certainly bring the wider area's focus back...

I think that depends on who is on those corners. Smooooot and double move haven't proven they can handle man to man. Unless, and this is a big if, they're going to do a lot of jamming at the line. That could work with plexi hurt and toomer being a bit elderly.

I don't really like the cover 3 either but it's worked pretty well so far considering we really don't have a shut down corner.

Is all this twitchiness just because this is finally a game you 'should' win?

Everybody expected a close game with Miami with defenses mostly dominant, which is 5th quarter excepted what you got.

Everybody picked 'wounded Philly' over the Skins, so you were underdogs in that one.

Now you're playing the Giants who have given up EIGHTY points in two games so far and you're sounding like you don;t want to be favourites?

I don't get it. Redskins fans seem to veer constantly between irrational triumphalism and irrantional timidity.

Man-up guys (and girls), the Giants STINK - you should EXPECT to destroy them. If the Skins turn up for the game on Sunday as ambivalent as this you will have another 'Mara' game on your hands, I hope they don't!

No way the giants have the manpower to keep up with us. Michael Strahan isn't up to form, Osi Umenyiora is scared since getting injured, they are switching Kawika Mitchell to a different linebacker and pulling in a guy who just got back from injury into his position, secondary is horrible so no need for me to even say anything about that. Eli is gonna choke....again, just like Mcnabb. Our D is scary this year and no one will go to the middle with the Reaper there. Derrick Ward is only good because of the garbage time at the end of the game, thats it. People playing prevent and his runs for 7 yards, and with Eli choking no plaxico, toomer or shockey.

I'm off to lunch shortly anyway, but I can't bring myself to go to the online chats with Jasno.

He either doesn't get or they don't select many substantive questions and even when they are asked, they don't get very substantive answers.

It seems to be more 'Jasno worship' stuff and jibba-jabba about music, which I know we primarily do to fill the endless time between subjects, but I can't believe that needs to happen in that forum.

Just my 2c.

I trend toward irrational timidity myself, but I think you nailed it about the fandom here.
