Re: SD releases OUR Red Snapper

So he's been cut twice now... I'm guessing the coaches know a bit more than we do as to the reasons why.

Re: SD releases OUR Red Snapper

I wonder if he still has back problems.

Re: SD releases OUR Red Snapper

Didn't see the game, but was Albright responsible at all for the two blocked punts in the Chargers-Raiders game on Sunday?

Anyhow, as I've heard it the bigger issue isn't his snapping abilities it's that his age has caught up with him so much that physically he's become quite the liability in protection and coverage, essentially putting his team in a 10 on 11 situation when he's on the field.

I was watching AFC Playbook on NFL Network while I was getting my haircut (SportClips is the closest 'barber' shop to my office), and they showed the breakdown of the 2 blocked punts, and whomever was lined up next to Albright got very confused and missed his assignments on both blocks (after finding the highlights on nfl.com, it was #90 Antwan Applewhite). So I'm not sure if he was overcompensating for Albright or just done messed up twice.

I doubt he's as large of a liability as Sundberg's snapping. Pretty much every-other snap is off-target on FGs.

It's because he is a 58 on Madden.

Yep i saw that also, but to me it also seemed like EA's snaps were getting back there kinda slow too.

Re: SD releases OUR Red Snapper

The Red Snapper should send a letter like this to SD management...

A Letter to John Madden from Washington Redskins Long Snapper Ethan Albright | Loot Ninja

"To: John Madden
CC: Electronic Arts Sports
From: Ethan Albright
Re: Being the worst rated player on Madden Ď07

Hi, John, my name is Ethan Albright. I play line for the Washington Redskins. You probably already knew that, so Iíll continue. I am writing in regards to the overall player rating of 53 that I have received in Madden NFL Football 2007. I feel that this is ****ing bullshit and you should kiss my mother-****ing ass. Ahmed Carroll was rated a 78 and the Packers just cut his ass on a Tuesday morning after his performance in a Monday night game. That is pretty terrible. The worst part is that his overall rating was sniffing 80.


You know what, John? Two can play this game. I rate you a ****ing 12. I rate you a ****ing 12 in Ethan Albright Football 2000-everÖ except for in the category of ball-licking. That is where I will spot you a 98 rating. You will receive this score because I will never give your blubbery ass a 99 in any category. Take that, pencil-dick. Go do Al Micheals or something. Boom.

Itís also pretty wonderful that my awareness rating was 59. You make it sound like I wake up in the morning, helplessly shit and piss myself, then lose three of my teeth before I discover that I am trying to eat a rock for breakfast. ****, John, I understand you saying that I am slow and lacking athleticism, but a rating like this pretty much labels me as retarded. Rod ďHe Hate MeĒ Smart has a 52 in this category. Electronic Arts is saying that seven rating points separate me and the breathing embodiment of the perfect oxymoron. Rod Smart struggled to arrange words in sentence form. Cave men had better hold of the English language. The only actions that separate point values of ignorance at this embarrassing level are things like using your own toothbrush to wipe your ass. I basically edged out Rod by my lack of shit teeth. If I take a night school class, could you bump me up to a 60?

I guess I just canít fathom the fact that I am the absolute worst player rated out of the entire NFL. ****, man, there are some shitty guys out there. Amongst everyone, I was rated the absolute worst.

I have received the impression that you feel that I am lacking in the agility category. I should consider a walk through my living room where I donít crash through a wall or kick over furniture a resounding success. My agility rating on your game is 33. It makes it sound like I just topple over if I start walking too fast. Ted Washington is rated a 40 in agility. He is listed at 365 pounds. If Ted Washington tied a white lady up and made her wear a metal bikini, heíd look just like Jabba the Hut.

John, you are such a ****ing dick. I also noticed that my kick return rating was a 0. I was rated a ****ing zero? So you feel that I shouldnít even receive a 10, or even a 5? You are pretty much saying that I couldnít even fall forward on a ball kicked in my direction. I would just stand there and let the ball bounce off of my ****ing face. **** that, John, I returned an onside kick 6 yards in 2002. You should have just slapped a Ė 4 on me and had the EA staff ambush me with paintball guns.

Finally, I would like to comment on an unlikely topic, my pass coverage ratings. I see that I am a better at man-to-man coverage (31) than zone (21). **** me sideways with a lunchbox. Where did these scores even come from? How much time is spent coming up with the pass coverage ratings of offensive lineman? Can I have that job? Letís see here, I think that Orlando Pace would be slightly better at jumping intermediate routes than Larry Allen. While Iím at it, I can assign the passing ratings for offensive lineman as well. I can use mine as a guide.

I was rated with a throwing power of 17 and accuracy of 16. Orlando Pace has a 22 power and 17 accuracy rating. Did someone at EA really put time into figuring out that Orlando Pace edges out Ethan Albright in both throwing power and accuracy? I will challenge him any day. My horrible passer ratings are of greatest misfortune to my son, Red Beard Jr. The poor boy is not only hideously ugly and covered by freakishly large freckles. He also has to suffer through playing catch with me and my senile-elderly-woman-type passer ratings. A session of tossing the pigskin usually consists of me missing my son by thirty yards in sporadic directions. I led him in front of a fire truck once and my wife kicked my ass. This is because of my 76 toughness rating. Yes, a 76 is far better than the other ratings, but Iím a ****ing lineman, damn it. NFL Linemen are considered to be synonymous with toughness. According to your game, I am a retarded, uncoordinated, pussy-ass ****wad that canít fall on a kickoff, throw, or spell. I am, however, slightly better at manning up on a receiver than dropping into zone coverage. You lose your mind more and more each year, old man.

**** you, John. Please expect to find red pubes in various meals you consume for the rest of your life. If you **** with Ethan Albright, you call down the thunder.

Rot in Hell,

Ethan Albright"

Re: SD releases OUR Red Snapper

We should. I'm sick and tired of this bad snaps that are coming out of Sundberg. We already lost a game due in part to his bad aim.

I also want to be right for questioning Shanahallen's decision-making regarding special teams. I'm already halfway there.

You put the "crazy" in CrazyCanuck. Seriously, I snarfed coffee through my nose reading this. I am sending you a drycleaning bill. Hysterical.
