Loss of a Legend

The “greatest defensive end of modern football” is right nobody was better than Deacon.I was a fan of his when he was with the “The Fearsome Foursome” and of course with the Skins. He was a colorful character and I always loved to hear him tell stories. The head slap was his move to get by linemen (outlawed by the NFL because it knocked guys out) And coined the phrase “sack the quarterback” for which he has more than any player (they did not count them when he started but everyone knows he has the record..lol).

R.I.P legend, G.O.A.T.

The Rams?

Well after last weeks big win the RG III show went off to take it to the Rams. A team that most say is not that good but seem to have the Redskins number every time,and yesterday they ripped a win from us again. Rams went to the substitute teacher card do anything you can because there’s nobody to stop you.Cheap shots, smack guys around do what you have to do it’s all good.And after watching a lot of games yesterday EVERYBODY had the same idea. This is a big joke for the NFL to have these shoe salesmen ref the games! And the joke is on us for now because we will watch this and there is nothing we can do. But what happens when somebody gets hurt bad or an all out fight happens because nobody respects the subs. The Skins offence played ok they put points on the board and RG III looked good. Memo to Shanahans we know RG III can run but he can’t keep doing that or he will end up like Mike Vick.. blasted…Use his legs now and then let the RBs run the ball and looks like we still need big play receivers ( catch the ball guys) . As for the Defence can you stop anybody ! Lucky Jackson went out the game or he would have had 300 yds .London Fletcher can’t do it all by himself and now All Pro Orakpo is gone again for the year.What is with Special Teams now block punts and field goals something that would never happen.Coach them up or be gone sorry that’s it! They let one get away …stop it ..now.


Well the NFL had their three days of hype with the draft.With the news of the end of the lockout in the air everyone was ready for some football.Then after the big show started in NY with the first round of picks done,boom the appeal comes in and puts the kabash on all the good feelings.Teams can stockpile  their new meat but that’s all they can do with it.No trades for Vets so it is all up in the air for now.No labor talks until May 16th. I have a bad feeling we are in for a long disappointing season! The only good thing was the Redskins acturaly did what most teams do…draft.They came away with 12 players that’s good but no QB in the bunch.They had not worked the draft like that in ….well I don’t know when. Lets hope a trade or free agent comes out way after the CBA is done.
