  1. Hedlund looked good the day I saw him kick at Camp this summer. Hope he's one of the guys they are bringing in today.
  2. Met Barton at Training Camp and he signed my football...nice young man and I wish him well.
  3. Mixed emotions on this, but they at least need to see who's available. I know some of the misses haven't all been AV's fault, but he has missed kicks that an NFL level kicker should miss. He may be the GOAT, but he's not the greatest of right now. We have 3 big divisional games coming up and can't afford to lose any of them due to missed extra points and makeable FG's
  4. Thanks all and I'm good with the name change for the thread. I don't get on here on the weekends, since I'm basically on my phone and not a computer. My weekends are generally busy anyway. Already some Hot Stove activity...some interesting options being exercised and declined. Strasburg could be in a different uniform next season...interesting!
  5. Let me offer my congrats to the Nationals here, too. I'm also happy for Zimmerman and the other veterans on that roster. They have a balanced ball club and can beat you in several ways. I predicted Houston in 7, so I was half right
  6. I'm not a Cubs fan, but former catchers "generally" make good managers since they are the on field managers, of sorts. I see Gerardi is being hired by Philly.
  7. the last quote at the end of the video..."we're just getting started." That's inspiring...not resting on a big win, but looking onward and upward...climb that mountain!
  8. I think we've pretty much covered that big win over Houston on Sunday, so let's look at our next opponent. Denver actually scares me a bit...not saying it's a trap game, but after two big wins against two very good teams, it's possible for a let down against a weak Broncos team. Their offense isn't very good, but they do have some weapons in the backfield. I think if we get pressure on Flacco, then he's going to be ineffective. If they decide to run the ball, then we need to be ready to stuff the running game. Defensively, they aren't terrible...they have some very good DBs, so we may be running the running the ball more this week. Reich has done a very good job designing an offensive game plan to exploit the opponent's weaknesses, so I expect the same this Sunday. Thoughts?
  9. As to the references to "elite QB's" earlier in this thread...all I'll say is we just beat two teams with elite QB's with our "good" QB. I think JB is playing great football. Doesn't make mistakes, doesn't force passes in the red zone that are potential interceptions...he's been cool under pressure in the pocket and is making great decisions. He's a true leader on the field and on the sideline.
  10. I'm fine with the all whites and should have clarified that. It's the all one dark color unis that are an eyesore for me.
  11. Ugh...I am in the VAST minority who dislike the all one color uniforms at all levels. Doesn't look good for any team in college or the pros IMO.
  12. Glad to see him stay. We'll see how he and Myles work together and I'm sure it will take time to figure it all out. Sabonis can't be traded until next summer with this extension, but Turner could be traded anytime. I don't see Turner being dealt before the deadline, unless a team desperate for a big man makes us an offer we can't refuse. But, for now, this distraction is over, so LET'S PLAY BALL!!!
  13. I heard the Astros are the most heavily favored to win the WS in several years. I just don't get that with the pitching staff the Nats have. I guess they'll have to play the games and we'll see what happens.
  14. I can't insert a Poll here, so vote with a comment. Who wins the World Series? Washington or Houston? I vote Houston in a 7 game classic. Both teams have great pitching, but the Astros have the edge on offense overall, and they were just in the WS two year ago, so they won't be intimidated by all the hoopla.
  15. I really like Sabonis and he's made that Paul George deal look even better than expected. I'd like to see Sabonis and Turner play a few games to see how this works before a trade is done or not. They are both too good to platoon for each other, so it's play them both, or deal one of them. Like other have posted, I'd be more inclined to deal Turner with the way the league is evolving now. I guess we'll see what happens.
