I tried AMD's scented oil ritual and that's how I got hired here.

On a personal level I've only met a few on-air people quite honestly. But I do like Wingo. And Brian Kenny. You can have Mike Greenberg.

It's interesting though. I mean it applies to all teams but I'll use the Redskins as an example. But it's funny how on the one hand people here can say "oh we're awful, preseason exposed all our flaws. Brunell is done, Portis is hurt worse than we're being told." And so on. But no "outsider" can say those same things. It's like Brud can yell at his kid, but I can't. Or BSB and I can jokingly talk in some thick Indian accent but Matty and Schneed can't. Not the greatest analogies, but I think you get the idea.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

I think that the core of this board has grown into the realization that we honestly know more than just about every talking head on any major sports network. They simply dont have the time to know every little thing we do. When someone around here says something that I disagree with I will say so but I will have respect for that. When Dan freaking Patrick, who probably hasn't watched more than 7 plays by the skins this whole preseason, says we stink I take serious umbrage. Dont be hating or lovin' if you are uniformed. Most of these guys are woefully uninformed.

I hear what you're saying. I mean there's a difference between a Ron Jaworski who spends hours pouring over tapes, analyzing roster moves, studying games, etc. or a Dan Patrick who does his show in his bath robe from a studio in his home (you never heard that from me though, if anyone asks EEich told you about that)

I can forgive ninnies like Sean Salisbury, and Pasta as "they know not what they say". Disappointingly, my man Jaws, and John Clayton have yet to be counted among the faithful?????????? I hear most suggest we will be basement of the division, or at least sub-basement. Has pre-season become that important? if so, the Raiders should kick ass! Are we the only ones that see the personnel, and coaching staff? I hear Cowboys to go all the way.....................errr...........how? The best quote I have heard in some time comes from a local sports guy I can pull out of Miami (if the weather is right). He say, "I have watched Drew Bledsoe for 10 years. You smack him a couple of times in the first half, and he's cross-dressin' by half time".
They ain't gotta love us, F*** them. We'll take the league by storm and ask questions later.

Jaws got game. He brings it every week. I respect what he says.

I think that makes two nails on the head for you today.

Execution is key, having some sort of momentum moving into the system is also really nice. Players know it's preseason, but they still start questioning.

The Super Bowl champs over the last 13ish seasons are 39-13 in the preseason. It was about a week or week and a half ago, don't remember everything. While preseason "means" nothing, you should never overlook just complete lack of production like the Redskins saw. I'm sorry, we were Vanilla, but so was everyone else. They had no problems scoring. Simple throws, etc.

Hopefully our offense can turn it on with a switch, but I doubt it. This division top to bottom will be seperated by no more than 3 games. If you told me the Redskins won it at 10-6 or 11-5 (doubt any team in our div goes 11-5) or lost it at 8-8 or 7-9. I wouldn't be the least bit suprised either way.

Daseal, my sentiments exactly. You and I are apparently the only ones on this board who feel that way. Everybody points to the 0-4 record in 1982 -- I doubt those Redskins looked as woefully inept as the '06 exhibition Skins looked.

Sometimes, we had people excusing their performance because of simple, vanilla schemes, while at the same time chalking the lack of productivity to a complex, 700-page playbook. Which is it folks?

I hope we light it up Monday night for 38 points as much as anyone here. I just don't think that's realistic. We'll beat the Vikings, I'm pretty sure of that. But it likely won't be a pretty win -- I'm thinking lots of field goals, maybe a defensive touchdown, but maddening three-and-outs, and some sloppy special teams kick coverage.

For me, the key this year was to stay healthy. Shawn Springs, Clinton Portis, Cornelius Griffin, and Philip Daniels -- all very key players -- were injured before the third preseason game.

I'll be ecstatic with an 11-5 record, but not surprised at all if we're 8-8 by season's end.

Re: No love for Ol' DC

What must not be forgotten here is that these guys are expressing their opinion. Opinion's are like a**holes. everybody's got one. Many of these guys of which we speak are always biased against the Redskins anyway, and you couple that bias with what we saw during the preseason and you have fuel for the fire. Most who think they know just a little about football that watched the Redskins play the last four weeks would hardly have a positive opinion. So we can just chalk it up by asuming they're basing their opinion on just that. Now all we have to do is win and prove them all wrong.
