Re: Psychics and Speculation

Don't get me wrong, I like reading most of JLC's stuff. Its just that it seems like sometimes, here lately in particular, he writes more like a pissed off 5th grader who just got gang tackled and pink belly from 11 big bullies. I guess when Danny boy disses him he writes with a little more negative tone. As I understand it, Gibbs wasnt particularly fond of him either and didn't give him much to work with.

I agree with you Dirtbag359, the process did seem pretty laughable on the surface, but do any of us really know what went on at the mansion? Ya know what I mean, the whole evaluation. And they didn't have a whole lot to work with as far as candidates, and I'm glad they took their time, finally showing some patients. but yes it does seem laughable to some degree by many, but I feel alot of that had to do with the way it was reported.

I guess the bottom line is Danny and the Redskins are cursed until they start winning Superbowl's, or at least damn close.

2) I do put some stock in what Jason LaCanfora reports since he is the beat writer for a legit paper like the Post. I don't know that it is really fair to say he is trying to be a psychic. He's a serious reporter and certainly has more access than most of us do. I should remind myself sometimes, though, that he can have an anti-Snyder tone at times. Sally Jenkins is a whole other story, and I wouldn't put her and LaCanfora in the same boat.
You sound so much like another Gamecock who is well known and a highly respected blogger/moderator/commentator over on Hailredskins.com.

Your posts make too much sense not to be him.

Much obliged, and glad someone thinks I make some sense. Never been over to HailRedskins.com though. Must just be some kind of USC thing

No one has a clue except Snyder, Cerrato, Gibbs (?), and the coaching candidates. Unless I hear something specific from anyone from that list, I'm assuming the process went about as well as it could.

And you're right, Snyder especially will be criticized heavily until we have another Lombardi; maybe even two more.

F...public opinion.

SCSkinsfan:

It would indeed be incorrect to put Jason LaCanfora and Sally Jenkins into some kind of comparitive situation at the moment. Messr. LaCanfora would think he had died and gone to heaven if he woke up tomorrow with the same level of respect and recognition that Sally Jenkins has earned in her career. He may get there some day, but he'll have to work at it.

It's sort of like Jim Zorn and Joe Gibbs. Not a good idea to compare their football coaching careers just yet. Maybe some day ... but not now.
