Kinda strange that video games are looked down on, or at least used as an excuse to label a guy "immature". Players have been playing games like Madden, Halo, and Call of Duty for years.
If it wasn't for my kiddos I'd be playing still . I just don't have time anymore. I don't see why players can't play... It's a video game

I wish I was into video games. I'd save tons of money.

It will definitely be a top 10 offense. I have no doubt about that.

My questions are on the defensive side. I'm optimistic they'll perform adequately, though will reserve judgment until I start seeing some live snaps.

But top 10 offense plus an adequate defense adds up to an exciting picture. I think we'll be competitive - the question is can we beat the quality competition in the NFC - the Eagles, Packers, Vikings, Rams, Falcons, Saints, etc etc.

It's a tough road in the NFC these days. But I think we're good enough to make games against those types of teams close enough to come down to a play here or a play there. Should be a fun season!

For sure, The Eagles should win 11 or so games again but as we know, things change fast in the NFL. if this team stays mostly healthy, we could compete for the East crown. The added aspect of Guice is scary with Alex back there. Can't wait for it to really start

I have a PS4, and I think it's been almost 2 years since I have actually played a video game on it. I just don't have the time.

Last one I had was a 3. It's been about 6 years since I picked up a controller, I miss it but I'm with u on the time part.

I'm a typical working parent, full time job and two kids (11 and 9) who are into several sports so if I'm not at their games / swim meets, I'm at their practices or volunteering as the treasurer of their softball league.

Not much time in the day left for video games, but that's why I like Fortnite. Easy to pick up, difficult to master, and games resolve themselves within ~10 minutes. So just play a couple quick games when you have half an hour before bed, or stay up late playing game after game after game when you feel the urge.

I like games that are easy to learn. If there's a steep learning curve I won't stick with it - not enough time in the day. Give Fortnite a run - you'll remember why you liked video games in the first place and it won't monopolize your day.

'Energy ball' Derrius Guice winning over fans and teammates

Prediction, he could be the next RGIII as far as hype and taking over the town if he plays well

I cant remember wanting and needing a draft pick to play well year 1...so much hinges on Guice. Love his attitude...need to see how he plays on the field.

I think at this point, as long as Guice isn't a total bust, he's gonna get some serious looks from the skins marketing department. He only needs 8-900 yards with 8-9 TD's and he'll be plastered on every lunch pail/coffee mug you see.

I say "only" as if that's not a lot, which it is. However I could see him being treated like Zeke is in Dallas even if he doesn't hit those great numbers.

Re: Guice Theory

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Derrius Guice has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

RapSheet reports Guice will have an MRI to confirm the diagnosis. On one hand it's good news that it's nothing serious, but MCL sprains are typically multi-week injuries. We may not see Guice the rest of training camp and preseason, but he should be okay by the time Week 1 rolls around. It can't be good news for his early workload, but Guice could quickly re-lap his competition.

Damn...well I think this should end his preseason games...I really hope he can continue to light practice to prepare for the start of the season.
