Skins Featured on NFLN's 'America's Game'

It's a holiday weekend and so for the most part I'm taking today off. But before I depart for the pool, I thought I'd leave you with the schedule for the Redskins games that will be aired as a part of the 'America's Game' 48-episode marathon shown this weekend on NFL Network.

'America's Game' is a series chronicling every Super Bowl winning team in history, and the Network also is holding a fan voting process to pick their favorite episode. The Redskins are included in the 10 possible teams, and the link to vote is at the bottom of this post.

I'll be watching the fireworks tomorrow on the lawn of my next door neighbor, the Iwo Jima Memorial. I hope you all have a great Independence Day weekend.

Here's the info:

Saturday, July 4

10 PM ET - 1982 Washington Redskins

3 AM ET - 1987 Washington Redskins

Sunday, July 5

7 AM ET -- 1991 Washington Redskins

In addition, the 1982 Washington Redskins are up for the "Viewer's Choice" episode but fans have to vote for it on NFL.com.

"If our offense doesn't improve, score more points and sustain drives then the defense(with our new and current talent talent)won't be as effective as they can be."

Amen.

I get how everyone is aping about how good the redskin D might be this upcoming season.

But even the best defense wears down in the course of a game--and season--if the offense doesn't get points up on the board.

I'd rather have some occasional 31-21 wins in place of the usual 13-9 loses/close victories.

This past season, there were games late in the season where in the middle of the 3rd quarter, the redskin defense seemed to cave in, after getting short fields, turnovers, and great defensive stops.

Touchdowns--and not 40 yard field goals--are the remedy for this problem.

Don't know if you read these posts, but things have been pretty cool so far.

The team roster review was nice.

What about a preview of AFC West/NFC South players-teams for skins' fans to look out for?

Take care, bro'.

The key to a sucessful 2009/2010 season is for Jim Zorn to cease using the word "Medium". If the team has early, please don't tell the team to stay "medium"
Medium means staying in the middle of the pack. You can quickly go from the middle to the bottom. If you have had the success that the Patriots have had, then you can preach staying "Humble" because they have accomplished something and are playing at a high level. If you are inconsistant and trying to build confidence, the coach should constantly push the team to play at an even higher level. If the team is constantly told be stay "Medium". They will likely be a mediocore to below average team. So please....no more "Medium" references.

Wow. And all along I thought it was about blocking, tackling, catching, scoring points. Instead it's whether the coach refers to "medium."

Which was my original explanation for why Dan only drafts skill positions -- he's playing Big Boys Fantasy Football.

But around here we fantasize every bit as much, only about rookie o-linemen instead of QBs.

----------------------------------
Road rage is being blamed in a shooting that injured one person today in the parking lot of Palms of Pasadena Hospital.

The two vehicles involved pulled into the parking lot, and one person was shot, according to Pinellas sheriff's spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda.

The victim, who was not identified, does not appear to have life-threatening injuries, she said

I guess the nickname for Terdell is 'Terd'.

And if he fumbled and lost a game, the next day's headline is, "Terd Drops A Load."

RE: why I loving living in FL so much

Oh this only gets better with more details

-------------------------------------

n episode of road rage likely led to a 64-year-old man being shot Friday afternoon.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, 84-year-old Nathan Snyder shot 64-year-old George S. Hall in the parking lot at Palms of Pasadena Hospital.


According to the sheriff's office, Snyder was driving his Hyundai sedan near Gulf Port Boulevard just after 3 p.m. when he cut off Hall, who was riding on his motorcycle.

The men pulled into the nearby parking lot at the hospital after the near accident. Angered, Hall approached the car, confronted Snyder and hit him in the face.

According to deputies, Snyder pulled out a handgun and shot Hall in self defense. The gunshot injury to Hall was not life threatening.

After being treated, Hall was arrested and charged with battery.

So the morale of the story is -- even if the old codger cuts you and nearly runs you down, do not punch him out because he might bust a cap in your a$$

Happy Birthday America?

What do you get the country that has everything for its birthday?

Presently, America has things most countries would envy.

We have:

Airheaded politicians who suddenly quit public service because things got tough and they would actually have to do their job.

Superstars who take the kind of drugs that make a hopeless crackhead say, "Damn, that brother was hooked!"

Fathers who'll use their child's death to promote a record label.

Something called twitter that let's one person tell another ever increasing useless details about their day.

A glib president who becomes increasingly unpopular the more it looks like he's going to do the things he said he was going to do while running for office.

Homeless people who don't have shelter as they've torn apart their comfy, large cardboard box to make signs announcing that they no where to live.

Uber-millionaire tv news reporters who smile through capped teeth as they interview the unemployed, underfed, and undereducated minions lining the nation's streets.

What more could a country ask for?

Happy Birthday America!

Now that I think about it: RI may be America's home for man-crushes on portly rookie 0-linemen.

These guys never got this much adoration in college. The sorority gals were flocked around the QB. But here on RI, we like our beef, no matter how raw it may be.

Happy 4th, 4th, and to all of the other hamsters in RI world.

Great article on Orakpo.

He may not post rookie of the year stats his first year, but by gosh, he sounds like the kind of guy this team needs.

If I'm an offensive lineman, I'm not looking forward to lining up across from the Skins D this year. I just see problems, problems too hard to handle.

Posted by: _Stumped_ | July 4, 2009 2:11 PM | Report abuse

1. Go dirtbags! The line struggled late last year, this year Campbell will be better, Betts will be better, the offensive scheme will be better, Thomas, Davis, and or Kelly will be better. This will make the OL SEEM better.

2. Campbell will be better in his first season coming back to the same offensive scheme. We don't even need a #2 WR, if 11, 12, & 86 COMBINE for the stats of a MEDIOCRE WR that will make a significant impact. The O will also benefit from increased turnovers.

3. Portis vs. Zorn, they don't have to be friends. Zorn & the fans need to focus on what Portis does between the whistles and ignore his off field comments. Portis isn't a criminal, so deal with his ego, because he walks the walk.

4. SAM LB, Blades played well last year. Worst case scenario Blades is solid. Orakpo is probably better than Blades due to athletic gifts. Other WCS Mac plays SSLB and Blades, Orakpo, Thomas, Glenn, Henson battle for WSLB.

5. Haynesworth, it might take a couple games up to half a season to really utilize this guy in OUR scheme. IMO, we won't rank as high on D but we will get more turnovers and sacks, and more wins because of it.

other thoughts:

6. Giants - How will they fare without Spags coordinating the D and the loss of Plaxico & Ward

7. Eagles - lost Jim Johnson, Dawkins, Consadine. How will ther e D fare?

8. Cowgirls - No T.O., no Canty. What is there OL average age?
