Re: Stupid ESPN

What gets me is that according to the poll - our signing of R-El was THE WORST offensive offseason free agent signing and Archuletta was THE WORST defensive signing.

Granted Archuletta didn't seem to be high on everyone's list but, sorry, the J. Peterson signing seemed far more extreme to me. As for R-El - weren't at least 4 teams looking to sign him? Yeah yeah. We paid them a premium - so that means it was bad. bleah - what idiots. I can't wait for the season to start.

BTW- I would agree that, of all our signings, I think the Arch signing is the biggest for "boom or bust" potential but even if it busts - and as I understand the contract, we cut him next year as post 7/1 cut and he only counts 1M against the cap next year and 3M in 2008. If he works out, our secondary will be monstrous AND, GW will have so many f***ing different ways to come at you, opposing offenses won't know their head from their ass by the end of the game. All they will know is that they are leaving the field in immense pain.

If Arch's back holds up - This defense is gonna hurt people next year.

Re: Stupid ESPN

These sports writers are terrible. I had just finished watching how Mort's un-named sources are bad mouthing Vince Young and his recent work out.
Is Mort so stupid to not see that his source is most likely someone with a pick lower than the top 3. So this secret source may be trying to lower Young's value so he could get a shot at drating him. I have never heard so many un-named sources bashing one player.
You don't hear any other players getting knocked in the press as much as Young. Which leads me to believe it is all propaganda.
The press is terrible. Now ESPN gets our winning a playoff game wrong.

Re: Stupid ESPN

Where is the part about TO being a worst free agent signing? Does ESPN love the Cowboys, Patriots and Giants or is it just me?

Re: Stupid ESPN

Everybody understands that ESPN will defend their mistake by simply saying that the Redskins didn't WIN a playoff game last year, but that the Bucs LOST it...

Sad.

I COMPLETELY agree! I dont know about you guys, but I live in FL and I love it when all my friends talk crap about the Skins. Then on game day we hand it to Tampon Bay and the rest of em. I would much rather let the play defend the team being underrated, than have to argue about why we are the favorites.

Re: Stupid ESPN

Ladies ( if there are any on here ) and gentelmen. These are the days that we will cherish for years to come. When everyone says that the Redskins are this, and the Redskins are that. "They" said that Cornelius Griffin was a bad pick up. That the Giants let him go because he was a bust who underperformed and that it would come back and hurt the Skins. "They" said that Washington would see that they should've taken Kellen Winslow over Sean Taylor. "They" said that Lavar being hurt in '04, and benched in '05 would hurt the Redskins. "They" said that Clinton Portis could not flourish in Washington. "They" said that Santana Moss was another example of Washington gettin the wrong guy for the wrong amount of money. "They" said Washington would finish last in the East in '05. "They" said Washington would not beat Tampa in the playoffs, that the Bucs would shred the Redskins. "They" were wrong,... F' them. I F'n love this 'ish. "They" come out and talk about how Washington made mistakes ? Let them talk, because that's all it is. A bunch of talk. When the Skins win this year, relish in the fact that they HAVE to report on the fact that they are winning. Relish in the lump that they feel in their throats when the clock strikes 00:00 after another win. When you go to 'The Big Fed' relish in the fact that it is so loud in there that the other team cannot function. Relish in the fact that we are fans of the most profitable, mast valued, and best marketed teams in the NFL. Relish in the fact that when "Thunder Dan" wins his Super Bowl that "they" will all have to kiss his @$$ and that "they" were wrong yet again. I'm sorry if this post is long, I've had a terrible day at work and I'm looking forward to all of the beer, vodka, and 'herbal' that I will have tonight.


HAIL Mutha****as, F****n' HAIL !!!!!!

Re: Stupid ESPN

There are two types of reporters out there. Guys that report objectively, and guys that hate the Redskins. ESPN has three that hate the skins (Z, Banks, King). I think that disliking the skins is a prerequisite to work there.
