    Ongoing Derek Carr Thread

    Why does this clown keep bringing up Nick Foles? Wasn't the original point supposed to be that Carr was a sure-fire star who was going to win ROY and would be comparable to Aaron Rodgers? How did this morph into repeatedly comparing the arm strength of Carr and Foles? Heck, I think all Foles supporters would acknowledge that he doesn't have a cannon.

    Also need a minimum number of attempts. If Datarm Talentdo goes something like 6 of 9 with 1 TD and 0 INTs in the first half of the season opener, gets hurt, and misses the rest of the year, his rating could be very high but it would be largely meaningless.

    This thread has certainly been a steady source of comedy these past several months.

    Shango and The Dallas Cowboys Show

    Watched a couple moments from his in-game broadcast of the Packers game. The highlight moments of course were when the Bryant catch was overturned (although he still held some hope) and the Cobb catch which clinched it with two minutes to go. On that one, he just about died, silently. Great to see. I gotta give the guy credit for his passion.

    Has he commented yet about the playoff loss to the Packers?

    I noticed something really weird when I was at the Eagles-Redskins game a couple of weeks ago. Any time the Redskins would get a first down, the public address announcer would proclaim loudly...."first down WASHINGTON!". He would say "Washington", not "Redskins." Routinely. It was almost like they themselves were uncomfortable with their own team name. You'd think it was Phil Simms at the microphone. The damndest thing.

    They're gonna be stacked next year. They'll finally have a healthy RG3. They'll have DeSean back. And a top five draft pick to boot. Not to mention several big-time free agents.

    All that shows is that he had 12 great throws that were caught and 13 great throws that his receivers failed to catch.

    I gotta be honest here. It's actually kinda fun to sync up the Eagles big plays and watch his reactions.

    I never said I was expecting a rant. I was just making an observation about the dude's videos in general. I respect his passion, but he's simply not that interesting when he's acting all serious.

    That dude is way more entertaining when he's ranting than he is when he takes himself seriously as an analyst.

    Exactly. I remember the Seahawks night game at the Linc in the snow in '05. At the end of the game, I was literally (no exaggeration) the only person from my section who was still there. One of the ushers came over and politely asked me why I was still there.

    And not just tomorrow. They still play the Cowboys once and the Giants twice. We might have to root for the Redskins a lot the rest of the way.

    But are there normal Redskins fans? In all seriousness, I think their fanbase is the exact opposite of the Eagles fanbase. By that, I mean that Eagles fans generally think their players all stink while Redskins fans generally think all their players are super awesome!!!

    Let's not forget "financially stable" as well. I'd hate for him to get into money difficulties which force him to sell the team!!

    The original subtitle, if I recall correctly, said "Native American team." Y'know...Redskins. Native Americans. Then someone got the clever idea to switch Native to Naive, as it more accurately describes many fans of the team.
