I want some of what you've been smoking on, if you believe the cowboys first string can beat my raiders first string. Homie is delusional if you think that will happen. ;):grin:

I love the fact everyone is doubting my Boys this year. We have made some awesome moves this offseason. Mainly getting 2 very talented corners in Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne. This will dramatically improve our defense. You think Sean Lee was good last year? Just wait, he is going to be lights out.

Demarco Murray WILL have a break out year right along with Dez Bryant. Say what you want but mark my words. Cowboys will do some damage this year. Im just letting everyone do the talkin' and patiently waiting for september to get here.

Honestly, I just cant wait for NFL period. There is just something about fall that I cant wait for every year and I cant stand when its gone. Cool cloudy days when the leaves are blowing around. Good hearty warm comfort food and Football on the TV....Man i cant wait!!!!!!

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves. How can yall think football when yall should be focusing on OUR Olympians? Our water polo and ping pong boys need your support just as much as your 2nd stringers. Come on, show some LOVE!

Oooops, how could I forget, haha. I shouldn't make fun- there are some very good and dedicated athletes competing. From track and field to gymnastics to swimming. But I wonder, doesn't anyone give hanshakes anymore? Way too many hugs and not enough handshakes. :Idontknow:

Maybe I'll watch some football, if I'm not fishing, or mowing the lawn, or washing my truck, or doing some gardening, or out and about with my wife, or not taking a nap, and there isn't a cup race on the tube. Oooops, the tube is no longer a tube. I should have said "the panel".

Call me in a few weeks when the season starts. On a other fourm I go to. Some one was talking about the hall of fame game. He said this is going to be a great season. I was like what the heck is he talking about. I am sorry you can not base 20 weeks on one pre season game. Were the first string only plays a few downs. I usally wait in till the october games to say that.

Any way I predict the Packers will go 11-5. With a lost in the second round. Super bowl picks. Denver over San Fran. Could You Imagine how happy Elway would be to beat them at the super bowl. My just for fun super bowl pick would be Lions over the ny tebows.

Saints!

Raiders hopefully will do well.

Will be interesting to see if the Baylor quarterback can give a spark to the Deadskins.

And as for Morris Claiborne and the Cowgirls, yes, he is the real deal. Will enjoy watching him this year.

Stuipd Bowl picks? I have no idea. Too early to tell.

Looking for Nickie Satan to leave Bamasux and head to Dallas next year.

SO GLAD LIFE STARTS AGAIN IN A WEEK OR TWO!! I go through withdrawal symptoms in the off season. I will not allow myself to get too excited. Being a lifelong Redskin fan I am accustom to mediocrity. Heck, there were years I would have been happy to have mediocre. Oh well, I hope RGIII does well, but how well can He really do with a subpar oline?

4 favorite words of every Redskins fan

WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR :laugh5:

In any case

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!

seriously, i want some of what he is smoking too. especially since he seems to think the cowboys-giants are playing in preseason, or atleast that is what he typed lol

there is always good reason to doubt the cowboys. Tony Romo is a known choker. Garrett is a mediocre at best coach. The team has ZERO leadership. Rob Ryans defense isnt even a shell of Rex Ryans defense.

Also, Demarco Murray is severly overrated. See how my skins defense shut him down last year? He isnt a threat to score either. How well does he pass protect? Can he carry the load for a full NFL season? or will he wear down and get hurt again? How good is that ankle gonna hold up to the rigors of the NFL? is it sufficiently healed to do so? He had one huge yardage game and some average ones, dont make him out to be the next emmitt smith.

Ooops, I meant season opener :Idontknow:

And Haters gonna hate, if I remember correctly we beat the redskins twice. And why did DeMarco have bad games? Our starting Fullback was out. If you look it up, when the we had the fullback, he averaged tons of yards per carry. Without him, he averaged very little.

i figured you meant season opener, was just teasing you there.

Lemme ask you this, who didnt beat the Redskins last year? Rex Grossman is a walking turnover. Demarco had a bad game vs the redskins. 2.9ypc bad. Dont blame it on the fullback, Fiametta, he isnt even on the team this year. Oh, not to mention, your offensive line is a mess, especially on the interior. Plus you have very little pass rush outside of Ware. Miles Austin has a recurring hamstring injury too.

Fiametta isn't on the team anymore, because we upgraded to get Vickers from the Texans. I will agree our offensive line is a mess, they're all oung guys and right now we couldn't pay to keep them healthy. Our pass rush is fine, we've got Spears, Lee, Ratliff, and not to Mention Bruce Carter, who is a rushing mashine.

Miles does have some hammy issues though, but last year he had to jump in with no offseason, and the ones now i'm chalking up to regular training vamp injuries, that a lot of players get. He will be fine come the Season Opener.

Saying a player is going to have a break out year is FAR from saying he is Emmit Smith. I didnt even come close to that. Dont take it off the deep end brutha. You seem personally upset by my statement. But let me break it down for you.

Demarco Murray played 13 games. In those 13 games he rushed 900 yards on 164 attempts. That is 5.5 YARDS PER CARRY. That is pretty d**n good.You can say that the deadksins "shut him down" in 1 single game last year. I can show you games where LT in his prime was shut down, Emmitt in his prime was shut down, Walter payton etc. Congratulations on playing his run well for 1 game, but that doesnt mean he isnt a good player. How can a player that isnt rated be overrated? All i said was he will have a great breakout year and you get so offended because your a Redskins fan and think I said he will be the next Emmitt.His rehabing is coming along better than expected and he will come back just as strong as before.

Tony Romo is a known choker because of...??? The botched snap and hold on the kick in the plyaoffs years ago. I agree that was disgusting. Other than that, what? He throws pics yes. Just like every other QB in the league. Remember, not all pics are QB's fault. If receivers run wrong routes and are not where they are supposed to be then that falls on the receiver. But most people dont see that because they dont really "watch" football. Lets compare Romo to Brady. Brady had a good year last year right? I would say so.

Tony romo pass completion % 66.3. Brady was 65.6%. Romo 31 TD'S. Brady 39 TD'S. Romo had 10 INT's and Brady had 12. See what im saying? Brady's QB rating was 105.6 and Romo's was 102.5. The stats are there. Romo is NOT a bad QB. He has not had a winning team around him. Our O line is horrible, yes i agree, and its hard to pass when your running for your life almost every play. Even still he makes plays on the run all game long. Now I am by NO means saying Romo is as good as Tom Brady because they are in different categories. Romo will never be Brady. But he is a good QB.

You can have your opinions on Jason Garrett, We dont know him well enough yet. I listen to training camp and his press conferences and interviews and he is one hell of a leader. Say what you want but IMO he is a good coach. As for Rob Ryan, its the same deal with Romo. You have to have good players to work with. If Paula Dean is making a pie but her ingredients are expired or old, the pie is going to suck. You know she can make a good pie, but she doesnt have anything good to make it with. I am not saying Ryan is an excellent D coordinator, but let him get acquainted with his new DB'S which is what was missing last year and see if the pie turns out better this year.

Miles hammy issues this offseason are not actually issues. He had a little tweak and they are keeping him out longer than usual for preventitive measures. Why take a chance in the offseason?

No matter who we have and how good they are playing you will still have something negative to say because you obviously have a biassed opinion.

Murray may rack up yards on occasion but still isnt a threat to score, only 2 rushing TDs with those 897 yards. Plus over a quarter of those yards(253) came against a horrible Rams defense. Plus he still hasnt proven he can stay healthy for a full season and carry the load. We already know Felix Jones cant either. You said he will have a great breakout year, i disagreed, no idea how that turns into me being offended.

Romo is a choker for several reasons. The botched FG snap is one of them, the numerous untimely interceptions is probably the biggest part of that. Plus if he is so good then why does he have only one playoff win? and not a true team leader, as evident by spending playoff bye weeks in cabo with jessica simpson, and missing practices to play in the US Open Qualifier round. If he didnt have Witten to bail him out so much, i would hate to see how bad he really is...

And you can try comparing Brady to Romo all you want, i will take Brady all day every day over Romo. Brady has 5 SB appearances and 3 SB wins. Romo has nothing close to that. Brady elevates his team to heights above and beyond where Romos ladder can even reach.

You may not know Garrett well enough, but i do. He has been with the Cowboys awhile now. He often tends to ignore the run game in favor of the pass. Even in situations where there is no benefit to passing. as for Rob Ryan, i guess you just misunderstood my post about him altogether. its not about the talent he has, his defensive scheme just sucks. it sucked in oakland and it sucked in cleveland too.

As for Austins hamstring, its been an ongoing problem for him and caused him to miss games last year, its not just a preseason thing. it lingers with him.

You cant honestly give a fair opinion on Murray. He hasnt even had a full year as a starter. So saying he isnt a scoring threat is a ridiculous assumption.

Romo is a choker because of INT's?!? I just gave you Tom Brady's stats. You may need to re read them if you didnt notice where i wrote that Brady threw more INT's than Romo. So by your standards Brady is more of a choker than Romo. Again, re read what i originally wrote because i clearly stated i am NOT comparing the 2 and i also said that Romo will never be as good as Brady ever. I used Brady as an example to compare stats to. Brady is the best QB in the league without a doubt. If Romo is such a choker, why are his and Brady's stats very close for the 2011 season? I can guarantee you that while both QB's are being chased down by a Defensive player, Romo will create a play on the move better than Brady all day long. They are totally different QB's but Romo is far from a choker. Give me some more reasons why you think he is so horrible since i just proved you wrong in facts. I think your just on the Romo hater bandwaggon like alot of uninformed casual NFL fans are. Look up the stats if you dont believe me. Listen to NFL experts who 95% say Romo is a great QB and not the problem. He might not be the leader he needs to be which i agree with, but he is not a choker or a bad QB.

Garret avoiding the run for the pass is not just a personal thing. The entire NFL is a Pass first, run second league. Again, experts will tell you the same thing. Check stats on the run vs the pass on every NFL team if you dont believe. I would be passing alot more too given the O line the Cowboys have. As for Rob Ryan having bad schemes. You dont help justify your point using Cinci and Oakland as examples. They consistently have bad defense reguardless of the coach.

Miles Hammy issue is up in the air. This year could be a totally isolated incident. Do you even know if its the same leg as last year?
