Not trying to politicize, or anything like that, but this guy is GALACTICALLY STUPID, and someone should have slapped him in his face for making this statement:

On Monday, Chicago Mayor Daley blamed the Ft. Hood Jihad Massacre on America’s love of guns!

“Unfortunately, America loves Guns. We love guns to a point where that uh we see devastation on a daily basis. You don’t blame a group.”

Mangini getting blamed for Gholston
Posted by Mike Florio on November 11, 2009 9:37 AM ET
It's been a bad week for Browns coach Eric Mangini.

Apart from the storm swirling around him in Cleveland, Mangini now finds himself the target of blame for the Jets' decision in April 2008 to select linebacker Vernon Gholston with the sixth overall pick in the draft.

Citing multiple unnamed sources, Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News reports that Mangini "lobbied hard" for the team to take Gholston.

"That one's on Eric," one source told Cimini.

Some were infatuated by a big game Gholston, a former Buckeye, had against Michigan's Jake Long, the first overall choice in 2008. But there was -- and still is -- talk that Gholston disappeared too many times in the film on too many other occasions.

And so it's no surprise that, 24 games into his NFL career (actually, 23; he was a healthy scratch for one game in 2008), Gholston doesn't have a single career sack.

As one player recently told Cimini regarding Gholston, "He's kind of reverting back. There's no spark, no fire. He's stiff, not too athletic, limited. I think the scouts might have been wrong."

In fairness to Mangini, it's not all his fault. By all appearances, the Patriots managed to dupe Mangini and G.M. Mike Tannenbaum into thinking that they would have picked Gholston at No. 7 if the Jets hadn't taken him at No. 6. New England's decision to trade down three spots after Gholston was off the board helped reinforce the ruse.

And so at No. 10 the Pats got linebacker Jerod Mayo, the 2008 NFL defensive rookie of the year and the new cornerstone of the team's defense.

The Broncos will win. Here's what is going to happen. Elvis Dumerville is going to finally break JC's ankle. Then TC is going to come in and get the crap beat out of him. TC will get injured in the second half and Randle El will have to take a few snaps. That's when we roll out the wildcougar offense. It's just like the wildcat except all the ball carriers are over 30. We'll score 10 points and lose 17-10.

Broncos v. Skins

Checkout the secondary the Broncos feature:

Champ Bailey
Brian Dawkins
Andre Goodman
Ty Law

(that's two possible HOF players, y'all)

versus

Santana Moss
Antawn Randle El
Fred Davis
Devin Thomas

(that's two clueless dudes, a fair catcher, and a one-man show)

I say we go two-tight and pound Betts/Cartwright at Dumervil the whole game to wear him down.

The broncos linebackers are fast--run power right at them.

Try to keep the broncos in a low scoring slugfest.

Hit Orton so much he feels like a trailer park wife.

Wait--I forgot: hitting a wife before a game is what the raiders' coach does before a game.

Sorry, wrong game.

The Pats don't know anything. Everyone knows the draft is a waste of time and the REAL way to build a team is to trade away your draft picks and pick up "established" players.

Odd that so many Skins fans (not the majority, fortunately) can actually manage to sound overconfident about upsetting Denver.

The Broncs are definitely vulnerable. but an upset would take some doing.

Thing about Denver is they don't usually beat themselves. That's to the credit of the coaches and Orton. The Redskins, on the other hand are given to the killing mistake. Mike Nolan is the sort of coordinator who can take advantage of that.

How to beat the Broncs: control the ball. Stop the running game. Make Orton beat you.

And tackle Brandon Marshall. Anybody see that Pitt DB Ike what's-his-name nearly rip Brandon's head off last week? Giving up fifty pounds, too.

"DeAngelo Hall found his teammates' response to his plight Sunday "a little bit disheartening," Dan Steinberg writes.


Mr. Hall

It's sad your teammates didn't rush to defend your actions this past Sunday when you got caught up in a playground fight with the falcons.

The team was losing the game.

You wanted to get back at the falcons for outing yours.

The starting quarterback was getting hit like he was a beach and the falcons spring break vacationers.

The entire season is headed down the tubes and dudes had their careers on their minds.

Marko Mitchell was playing in his first regular season NFL game and played well.

Ladell Betts took over at running back and played well.

Rock Cartwright got multiple carries and relished the opportunity.

The head coach is a lame duck who has to duck after every game for fear of having the few responsibilities he has taken away from him.

And you're upset, Mr. Hall, that no one ran to your defense.

Maybe what you don't realize is that you actions were childish and reprehensible.

And no right thinking man with his career and rep on the line will ever defend you while will you ruin yours.

Its mind boggling, and even bigger than that is their overall handling of injuries in general this season.

Samuels- for his safety/well-being and life they should have IR'd him and retired his number to the ring of honor right then and there and thanked him for a decade of dominance, consistency, and effort while they foundered and ran this franchise into the ground.....but they waited a week and took up a roster spot.

Horton and Cooley- both are looking at long rehabs but they are going to try and rush them back to play in December in a lost season so they can expose them to additional injury risk when they should be IR'ing two of there precious few young core starters and give them a year to truly get healthy and ready to contribute in a new year when the games will matter again.

BMW- multi week rehab, has looked awful at tackle needs to be at guard but we're talking 4 - 6 weeks when there are only 8 weeks left, IR him, get him healthy and then get him back to the weight room and film room and see if you can get him truly ready to contribute at guard next year. Any guy off any practice squad in the league is as good as he is right now, why waste the spot for 4 to 6 weeks?

Daniels - last year of his career probably playing with a torn biceps and taking valuable time/snaps from a young and promising Jarmon.

Portis - has been hurt, out of shape, and not practicing all season. Sit him for as long as it takes to get him healthy in a season that doesn't matter and get some of the young backs like Mason and Alridge some snaps and see what you have....oh wait they're gone.....Ganther then....oh wait you still haven't re-signed him.....

Even beyond the injuries - ARE - the worst punt returner in the league and a below average receiver with a contract that all but dictates he's gone next year, make him inactive every week and get Tryon or DT11 or heck even Rock returning punts and get your young receivers on the field. That ARE is taking a single snap away from the young receivers at this point is criminal. Put Landry at SS and put Smoot as the deep FS.


it drives me flipping bonkers!!!!!! we have the biggest bunch of idiots in our front office and head coach ever!!!!!!!!!

""DeAngelo Hall found his teammates' response to his plight Sunday "a little bit disheartening," Dan Steinberg writes.""

Hmmm...

A couple thoughts:

1)I found DHall's tackling (or lack thereof) a little disheartening

2)To his credit, Haynesworth came over and shoved some dudes around...it just took him a while to trot his fat butt over there and start flinging people

3)Someone needs to tell DHall that he's not doing himself any favors by running on LaVar's show and getting baited into questioning his teammates' heart...let the pundits do that, don't go all CP26 and start stabbing your own guys to show how tough you are, b/c the next time a brawl breaks out they just might stand aside and watch your skinny little tail get pummelled...again...

I'm going to go out on a limb here. But I'll predict...

REDSKINS will stink up the joint for the entire first half.

JC17 will either fumble and/or throw a pick that will inevitably lead to the first 7 points for the BRONCOS.

The O-LINE will again look lost, bewildered and out of sinc -- wondering why their QB is flat out on his back again and again.

CP26 will show up in his "practice" sweats, pace up and down the sidelines, and exhort his so-called teammates to try harder. He'll also cast a few hound dog looks up to the owners box -- and ask to borrow Zorn's mike to speak with the bingo caller.

DEFENSIVE TEAM will find itself severely mismatched and out of position -- and playing like they had buckets of concrete around their ankles.

SCORE AT THE HALF: 24-3 BRONCOS

During another rousing halftime performance, Zorn will hear his voice creak like a pimple-faced 12 year old going through puberty, while Blache will question the manhood of his D-BACKS. DHall will then tackle the nearest locker and break his wrist. Fat Albert will just sit there with a towel on his head, while Cooley taps away on a series of tweets about nothing of any particular significance to anyone.

Just before they go back out for the second half, JC17 will ask teammates to gather around for a prayer and Sellers will tell him to eff off.

During their first offensive series of the 3rd quarter, JC will be brutally sacked and forced out of the game with two broken ribs.

During the next offensive series, TC will efficiently march the team down the field by throwing a series of short slants and out patterns, mixed in with a few runs to the RIGHT with BETTS -- leading to the day's only touchdown for the Redskins.

Following a few more three and outs -- and another late field goal -- the remaining 2,700 BRONCO fans in the stadium will stand and clap patiently as the game finally reaches its merciful end -- with a final score -- BRONCOS 31, REDSKINS 13.

During the post-game press conference, Zorn will offer some supportive remarks on the team's confidence, progress and character.

When reminded that they've lost yet another one, Zorn will simply offer a vacant stare and reply, "Oh yeah, that too."

Mangini is horrible on multiple levels. That's an established fact.

Regarding my JC case study, I don't think he's regressed since last year, as much as he's no longer being propped up by the run game.

The dude just is not a winner and he can't lead an offense. For 8 games last year, the run game was the centerpiece of the offense and JC was able to compliment it. When the run game deteriorated and we had to start leaning on the pass, JC17 has been mediocre to bad.

Like I've said before. JC17 is not going to single-handedly lose games for you. But you cannot count on him to win games/lead the offense. For JC17 to play well, everything around him needs to be going great - run game, pass block, etc.

So he's not JaMarcus Russell or Trent Edwards or Derek Anderson (non-Pro Bowl year version). But he gets to occupy that tier of QBs that is one slight grade above them...

I have always believed that the team plays those players that give them the best chance to win.
At this point in the season, I'd be switching over to those players that work the hardest at practice, with the expectation that the venn diagram would coalesce.
But why would Zorn care to experiment at this point? It's not like he cares about the future. At least on offense, I'm not even sure if you can learn much -- I'm hoping that next year's system is chosen based on the talents of the players, rather than ... however they chose WCO.

3-5 39yds, int, fumble ret TD

N(20) W(10)
1-2 5yds

N(23) W(10)
5-6 62yd TD


This game is a perfect example of JC playing mediocre to bad while the game is close/competitive, and then lighting it up when the game is out of reach.

He stinks it up on the early drives contributing directly to some turnovers, one of which is returned for a TD.

When he finally puts together a nice drive, the Skins are down 17-0. The Skins scrape back into the game, and it is competitive, and JC can't do much. On one drive while it is 17-7, the Skins get teh ball at the NYG 11 following a turnover, and they only get a FG.

Finally, with the score 23-10 JC goes on a rip-roaring stat padding drive and throws his only TD pass of the game with less than 2 minutes to go.

So the final stat-line looks respectable.

Take away that last TD drive when the Gmen were in a soft prevent, and JC was 14/20, 149yds, 1int, 1fumble, 0 TD

"I think I would go six offensive linemen (have Batiste play as a blocking tight end) and Yoder."


You and I continue to be on the same page when it comes to scheme issues.

Sherm should go with unbalanced lines using Baptiste as a tight end and Davis and Moss split.

It would give power against Dumervil and the broncos speedy outside linebackers.

Going old school against the new school broncos is the best way to go.

Betts should get the rock early and often.

And with Cartwright backing him up, the redskins running game might just rock.

BRING BACK THE 'RIGGO' DRILL!!!!

Not trying to politicize, or anything like that...

On Monday, Chicago Mayor Daley blamed the Ft. Hood Jihad Massacre on America’s love of guns!

“Unfortunately, America loves Guns. We love guns to a point where that uh we see devastation on a daily basis. You don’t blame a group.”

smh....ufb....

Sure, you're not trying to politicize. You want to make your one stupid statement but no one else to post their intelligent retort.

Of course America loves guns. we have the highest murder rate in the "civilized" world.

We have one of the biggest terrorist organizations in the world, the NRA, with a stranglehold on congress

Not talking about hunting rifles or the right for solid citizens to have a weapon at home top protect themselves and family. Thats' the American way. I'm not the cliched bleeding heart you NRA types believe anyone who opposes any guns is.

But the NRA supports cop killer bullets, which even cops oppose, wants 50 calibre weapons in the hands of citizens and supports every law around that puts more guns in the hands of more people. Saturday night specials are their specialty. Guns on campus, where a dissatisfied student can wipe out a class room? NRA votes Aye

They have the philosophy, as do some of the morons who support it, that "when everyone has a gun, gun crimes will go waaay down because people will be afraid to shoot people because they can shoot back." Tell me, how did that work out on a freakin' Army Post?

F the NRA.

Yeah Americans LOVE guns. "God flag, guns and Apple pie."

Oh and by the way Beans, I sure hope you didn't think I intended my response to your politically inflammatory post to be "political."

Mostly I don't want guns in the hands of idiots who dont' know what's political and what isn't.

I say we just don't show up and get ready for Dallas next week.

I mean, really, at this point, beating Dallas is the only thing that could give this season the slightest shimmer of joy.
