I've got every jersey of the 1991 Super Bowl team..." They want to know that you're serious about the job and not looking for an excuse to say I work for the Redskins

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

To get back to the topic (my fault), check out what Rotoworld said about Chris Chester, the guy I chose as the most underrated in that thread:

Chris Chester - Washington Redskins - 2013 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com
Quote:

Redskins RG Chris Chester hasn't missed a snap since signing his five-year, $20 million contract in July 2011.

That's 2,165 plays. Viewed as an overpay following the lockout, Chester did struggle in 2011, but was much improved in 2012. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 10 right guard as the Redskins led the league in rushing. Chester is due an affordable $3 million each of the next two seasons. Jun 28 - 8:57 AM

Chester has given up just one sack in each of the last two seasons and after struggling to adjust to run blocking in the Redskins’ zone scheme for much of 2011 he has found his stride there.

Not sure if you were just being sarcastic based on their social problems, but if not:

It doesnt matter if they "sound" like Indians or not. In order to be considered an American Indian, the tribe you are from had to have originated within the continental 48 states. I have yet to see a source refer to the Inuits or Aleuts as Indians. They call them Indigenous people of Alaska. Im actually surprised to see the site you found call them Eskimo's. From what I was reading, that is considered to be a racial slur now. Especially to the Inuits of Canada, which is where it seems that originated from (Although the site you posted does reference that Eskimo is being done away with and replaced by their tribal name Inuit). Even the site you posted doesnt list them as Indians.

I found this out while researching Robert Green and the Patawomecks. The argument against them is that they are not a federally recognized tribe, only state recognized by Virginia. I looked up what the requirements to be a federally recognized tribe were, and thats when I found out that people from Alaska and Hawaii are not allowed to be considered American Indians.

Monkeydad, or someone, could you please tell me how to multiquote? It's not fair to newbies if we don't know how. I feel discriminated against.

The way I do it is to right click on the quote button, then hit "bring up in another tab". Type in your response to that quote. Then go back to the other tab, get yourself back into the thread you want and hit quote for the second quote that you want to make a comment on (dont worry about any new tabs at this point). Go to the reply box at the bottom and copy the entire quote, including the quote tags. Head back into the tab you are responding in and paste the quote into that. Then add your response to the second quote underneath it. Keep doing that for all of the quotes you want to respond to.

You're an idiot for not knowing how to multiquote. Pathetic.

Thanks. That was helpful. Yaaaaaaay! I'm going to have to come back to this every time I want to multiquote. LOL. I am an idiot.

Edit: D***, that's complicated, at least for me. Matty, we need those multiquote buttons.

Here's an interesting article: Are the Redskins Super Bowl contenders? | Comcast SportsNet Washington

Tandler and El-Bashir debate whether or not the Redskins are Super Bowl contenders. I'm agreeing with Tandler here. Yes, the Redskins are contenders.

I say yeah, why the hell not?

A lot of key guys are coming back from injury, RG3 should continue to improve in year 2, we brought back almost everyone from last year, so it's not that crazy to think the Skins will be legit contenders in the NFC.

I agree with you, Matty. But I'm going to be a realist here.

What if RG3 re-injures his knee and his season is over? What if he never gets back to full speed? What if Kirk Cousins takes over the offense, but flames out? What if defenses, armed with film from last year, completely shut down our offense? What if Alfred Morris proves to be one and done? What if Fred Davis has lost it?

What if none of the rookie DBs pan out? What if Fletcher's tank runs out of gas? What if Orakpo is injured again? What if Meriweather isn't the game changer we're all hoping he'll be? etc., etc.

I'd call that being a pessimist.

You can play the what if game all day long, in either direction. Not much reality there.

I think the Redskins are fringe SB contenders.. It will depend on health and matchups in the playoffs. I think they are the favorites to win the East and should win 10 games or so. From there, if they get a home game against a dome team vs. Atlanta or New Orleans that will help in the divisional round. If they get a tough draw like having to go to Seattle or GB, that'll make it tougher.

All roads go thru SF from how I see it, it would be nice for them to get knocked off in the divisional round.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

IMO we are a Super Bowl contender. I've been watching the 49ers and Falcons more closely than usual this offseason for this reason. I see them as "the competition." I've gotta say, such beats the heck out of situations where "the competition" was for 3rd place in the NFCE.

2013 NFL Rookies Who Already Look Like Draft-Day Steals | Bleacher Report

Quote:
According to Mike Jones of The Washington Post, Rambo was everything the coaches hoped he would be in minicamp. However, the real test for Rambo will be in regards to how he stays out of trouble over the long-term.

If Rambo does manage to stay available and away from suspensions, the Redskins may have landed one of the top steals of the draft.
