And you are right - even in the worst seasons there are a few fun games or at least fun plays in bad games.

Very true I grew up in RI and I use to subscribe to a magazine called the Warpath, I longed for it each month and I think it came weekly during the season. My dad would go on business trips to DC and always bring me back every sports section of the WaPost during the days he was there. I would pour through each one of them.

Re: Skins @ Dolphins Pregame Thread

Considering we play down to the crappiest teams:

Skins 10
Fins 7

Get ready for another snorer.

10 is implying we score a touchdown. That's not setting the bar low enough. 9-7.

Re: Skins @ Dolphins Pregame Thread

I'll be optimistic when we finally have a QB again. I am at the point where I would care a whole lot less about wins and losses if they were at least exciting or even enjoyable games. These games suck, I feel horrible for doing it, but more and more I watch the Redzone channel or a top game most of the time the Redskins are on. I flip back and forth, but I can only watch so many three and outs ya know?

Re: Skins @ Dolphins Pregame Thread

I think I'm picking the fins in my pool, but I do expect the offense to play better for some reason. Miami is on the upswing lately so I feel they'll win more late in the season.

Re: Skins @ Dolphins Pregame Thread

Well...there's NOTHING wrong w/ switching between the Skins and another game or two lol. I keep a close eye on the Saints and def like to see em do well cuz they're fun to watch, seem to have a high character group and I always liked G Williams.

I'll be shocked if we win Sunday...it's almost impossible to conjure up a scenario where we win anytime soon. On the other hand Miami should win some games going forth and give us a better pick in the draft

Maybe we can get in the top three but I don't know if there's much value there beyond Luck?

Re: Skins @ Dolphins Pregame Thread

I won' tbe able to see the game, which means that it will probably end up being worth watching. I am going to go way out on a limb and predict that the Skins man up after 4 weeks of crap and play a decent game and that Miami has a let down after scoring more points last week then even they thought they could score in a game.

Skins 26 (3 TDs -- Helu catch; Young catch; Beck sneak), 39 yd FG (squaaks inside the upright, bringing us all bak to being nervous for our FGs), and Kerrigan/Carriker cobine for a sack/safety); is this specific enough?

Fins 17

and that will bring us to our 4th win out of the 6 we will get this season (we beat Dallas and the vikes and no one else this year) -- so after all that we have done to imrpove, we won't.
