Ah, no wonder. I know it used to be called the Black and Blue back in the NFC Central days, but never heard of NFC Norris before. NFC Norris like Chuck Norris?

Its old NHL before Bettman assplowed the league.

It's a reference to the hockey Norris division which was located in the similar geographic location as the NFC North.

And Mcnabb's "faster than Favre" isn't that much faster. A couple years back in preseason, they were teeing off on McNabb but Vick got no pass rush. McNabb isn't going to be outrunning a lot of guys anymore. .

Named after the same guy the Norris Trophy for league's top defenseman is named for? Makes sense. Ah and it also says when the Caps started as an expansion team that was their original division. Okay. Thanks for the insight guys, obviously this was before my time.

Sonny confirms the armband incident and that McFake put the team in incorrect formations last season. P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C.

Re: Redskins and Vikings agree on McNabb trade (updated: deal is done)

Did this really happen?

A ton of outrage follows, until Bishop reveals the second part of the story.

"So they're having this power lunch, power dinner at the Super Bowl with Fletcher Smith (McNabb's agent), Bruce Allen, Mike Shanahan and Dan Snyder. At some point, this topic comes up," he said.

"At that point, when Snyder heard that, Snyder apparently went ballistic and said, 'Are you effing kidding me?' Why did I hire you as the head coach? I'm paying you $7 million a year to be the head coach, and you can't get your guy to wear a wristband? Are you serious? If he's on the team next year, you're making him wear the wristband," he said.

Bishop said Shanahan and Snyder then began arguing, and Smith and Allen "didn't know what to do." Again, take this for what you will, but the whole thing is so Redskins if you think about it.

According to Lavarleap56(someone on ES who claims to have inside info), no. But the armband shtick was true.

Re: Redskins and Vikings agree on McNabb trade (updated: deal is done)

Speaking of this idiot.


Jurgensen: Redskins can win with Beck or Grossman - DC Sports Bog - The Washington Post



Quote:
Jurgensen said. “And that was some of the problem last year, getting in the right formation to run plays, and I’ve had players tell me that....You’d go to the line of scrimmage, and if they were in the wrong formation, they’d call a timeout to get in the right formation.”
That idiot McDummy had our offense in wrong formations...lol You wonder why Rex looked 10x better, there you go. Guy didn't want to learn or to be coached one bit. No wonder the Eagles never won a Super Bowl under his play.

Let's just hope this is the last big mistake of the Shanny/Allen regime. So far it seems that way.
