    2018 Hard Knocks - The Cleveland Browns

    That was when the Phillies, and Eagles didn't go with FieldTurf but a brand called Nexturf. They were the competitors at the time to better Astroturf. The VET grounds crew didn't anticipate the amount of rain on the pitchers mound that covered a soggy/muddy section of the baseball diamond that was unfit to play football. After the embarrassment on HBO, they quickly resolved the problem. At least it happened during a preseason game, not during the regular season. As for the Linc, I believe they broke ground for the stadium two months prior to this incident.

    2018 Hard Knocks - The Cleveland Browns

    Don't forget All or Nothing on Amazon Prime is now competing with Hard Knocks. Both shows only provide a distraction to these teams. The Cowboys are the latest victim of All or Nothing, and they were also on Hard Knocks back in the early 2000's. Nothing good comes from the intrusion of a camera crew documenting every move you make. You'll never see the Eagles Patriots, and Steelers on those shows. There has never been a great outcome to the season when those two shows invade the privacy of an NFL team.

    I had to visit VA recently, and listened to DC sports radio stations after the draft. The radio hosts are really patting themselves on the back that this is a really great draft, and Alex Smith is a step above Cousins. In what alternative reality? If Andy Reid has only won one game with Smith at QB during the playoffs, what logic gives one optimism that Jay Gruden will find the Alex Smith solution? Without Cousins, the Redskins lose his arm, Smith doesn't have that ability.

    Ben Doesn't Know Why Steelers Went QB

    Big Ben has never been the same since he took a header on his motorcycle early in his pro career. He's been very good, but before that motorcycle accident, he was on the verge of greatness. Ben lost his edge.

    Browns Picks

    Didn't the Browns go through this with Johnny Manziel a few years ago? A cocky QB who's unstable, or immature with no support structure, with a dysfunctional NFL franchise to get him to grow up. Chubb was there for the Browns and they draft a CB from Ohio St. instead? "Meet the new stupid GM, same as the old stupid GM".

    Tom Brady

    Who cares, Brady's been an a-hole his entire NFL career. He ditches Bridget Moynahan for Gisele while Bridget is pregnant? Isn't that enough proof? At least now a worldwide audience saw Tom Terrific act like a sore loser. The best thing I never saw Superbowl night was Gisele acting like a lunatic after a Patriot SB win on her iPhone.
  7. Maybe it's time that Andy Reid follows his understudy's and not Mike Holmgren. Reid has now produced two SB winning coaches (John Harbaugh, Doug Pederson). Yet Andy Reid falls into the same conservative play calling traps during the postseason, or his run vs. pass ratio is outrageous. The man will never change, he's just set in his stubborn ways.

    Dallas to host 2018 Draft

    Can one imagine the children of Redskin fans who just finished medical school never witnessed the Redskins winning a Super Bowl? Can one imagine children of Cowboys fans who are now legal adults to drink never witnessed the Cowboys winning a SB? This is payback for "how many SB's do you have"? Well, where have you been? Do these fans have VHS players that still work on those dusty highlight videos? Has the VHS tapes snapped yet re-living in your previous glory over and over again? It's been almost ten years since the Phillies won the 2008 WS. It's just history. It's all about the now. When Jerry Jones was inducted into the NFL HOF I wondered why he never mentioned Jeff Lurie, yet he mentioned Snyder, and the Giants owner. JJ's worst nightmare has happened, apparently Lurie and Jones do not get along.

    You moved to Skins country at the right time, to witness the decline of the team that was anticipated when Jack Kent Cooke signed his deal with the devil in 1979 with his own blood. To be fair to the local DC fans, I think all NFL fans who live in an NFL city are all insular, including the Eagles. Eagle fans in general don't care about the AFC, or other NFC divisions unless playoffs are involved. It's when you live in non NFL cities such as Richmond VA it gives you more of an open market to all teams with no NFL restrictions to games. If you were in the DC area for a home Redskin game, you can't have another game playing on the other network at the same time. So what would've been a CBS double header outside of an NFL city is blacked out. Yet you are right, it doesn't matter if they are from the DC metro area or Richmond, they were still arrogant Ds at the height of their success. Today, it's almost laughable how brow beaten they've become. Are the Hogettes still alive? Is that guy from the south endzone of RFK still have his "Proud and Loyal Fan" sign? As much as Eagle fans want to trash Lurie, it could be far worse (Snyder).

    For once the Eagles moronic fan-base at an NFL draft didn't knee-jerk boo a potential starting QB when they drafted Wentz in 2016. To a person as sensitive as McNabb, he still lives with that ego crushing moment just out of college. The difference is if Wentz went through the same ordeal, Wentz is emotionally tough, and would understand that the boos weren't against him, it was a bunch of moronic idiots who wanted a half baked RB. McNabb never got over that, and that's a lack of maturity.

    Kaepernick still no job

    In 2012 the Eagles O-line was in shambles, Desean Jackson finally showed his true colors by taking a season off knowing Reid was going to be gone, and despite that Foles showed promise with a horrible offense. I wouldn't have it any other way. Kirk Cousins has Tony Romo disease. A QB who can do great things the first fifteen weeks of an NFL season, only to blow a fuse when it matters most at the crucial point of either making, or missing the playoffs. Since Cousins' heart is in San Francisco with Mike Shanahan, I wonder how productive he'll be this season.

    Kaepernick still no job

    You really need to read a book. Jackie Robinson would've been admired, and loved by today's NFL. Jackie Robinson was wanted by Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers organization because "HE COULD PLAY BASEBALL". CK right now, is not a quality NFL QB, how many nails will this take to get through your thick skull? I only brought up profit because hiring CK would be a drain with a low level contract to any NFL team because he's now a crappy QB. Crappy QB's don't get a job in the NFL whether or not they protest. Cam Newton could pull the CK hypocritical protest a year ago, and he'd still be employed in the NFL. Get it yet?

    Kaepernick still no job

    It doesn't matter if Stalin was behind the killings but I believe the Soviet Union lost over 30 million lives during WWII, the most of any other country fighting that war. After the war if you were captured by the Soviet army as a German prisoner, your life became a living hell. If the West captured a German prisoner, most of them went to camp in Wisconsin.

    Kaepernick still no job

    You are full of BS. I did not vote for our current President, and that's lazy logic. If Kaepernick was the QB who almost won the Superbowl a few years ago was able to prove he's the same QB today, the Ravens' would've signed him last week. This would be a non stater debate. CK has to show that he's still a very talented player in the NFL with his "baggage", if CK wants another job. CK is just a terrible QB right now based on on the recent on field performances. Sometimes it's not political, it's about money, and the NFL is very good with how to maximize their profits. CK is not this superhuman QB ESPN that he once was with talking heads rating him above most second string QB's in today's NFL. This hand wringing needs to stop.

    Kaepernick still no job

    I know the "sports narrative" that ESPN is so high and mighty on it's on petard isn't seeing the big picture. Colin Kaepernick hasn't been Super Bowl Colin Kaepernick since Jim Harbaugh left the Niners. These talking heads on ESPN, or NFL Network who claim he's better than 50% of the NFL backups today? There's no proof that's an accurate fact. Kaepernick has been sub-par to mediocre since Harbaugh left. This isn't just about politics, CK is not a very good QB at this time. Not to mention, if the Ravens did sign CK, he would have to learn a new offense under John Harbaugh. CK couldn't decipher the simplistic Chip Kelly offense, so what makes one think that CK would master the modern WCO? Sometimes, it's not about race. It's just the QB sucks today.
