Afterthoughts: NY Jets vs. Washington Redskins

I was really impressed with the Redskins performance last night, overall. There were some poor throws, some critical dropped passes, and a couple bad performances along the offensive line (see snap to Grossman on the safety).

Defensively, the Redskins played brilliant football. Every man was responsible for his gap. Playing against the #1 rushing offense in football from a season ago, to see the Redskins play their gaps, and attack at the line with the free man was a thing of beauty. On LaDanian Tomlinson's long rush play, LaRon Landry botched his tackle with a bad angle on LT's cut-back in that zone-blocking scheme. Our front-7 did their job, and the corners got out and made the play downfield (which they didn't do well last season). Landry knew the bulk of that run was his fault. The team strapped down and limited those mistakes the rest of the game.

Coverage was strong, and the team didn't allow many yards after the catch. A lot of "exotic" blitzes for a preseason game, but still rather vanilla. Good to see that the overload paid off, a couple sacks, and forcing some horrible throws.

DeAngelo Hall's interception shows not only how comfortable he is in this defense, but with his teammates in this defense. Hall focused on his duties on the play, recognized his zone was covering two men, and had confidence in his safety help over the top. He was able to read both routes and keep his eyes locked on Sanchez's eyes, and jumped the underneath route and brought the ball out from inside to 10 to the 43.

It's obvious the team still has work to do in all facets, and we shouldn't be anywhere near as comfortable as say, the Colts, going into the last week of preseason and starting the regular season in primetime against the Dallas Cowboys; but there's enough to show that we're fully capable of being that go-get-'em team and have plenty of opportunity to be successful immediately.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

A quick glimpse into our archive would reveal we here at Don't Laugh, People are fans of comic books and their respective movies. I do not often divulge into a battle of DC vs. Marvel vs. the others, because I typically enjoy plenty from all (but yes, I do think Marvel is the best for art and for stories). However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

It was announced by many sources late last night/early this morning, that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had finally reached an agreement for their partnership in order to introduce Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (where The Avengers live). Marvel will reportedly allow Sony to retain Spiderman's rights to let Amy Pascal produce films in the title, but she will be aided by Marvel's top man, Kevin Feige, in her endeavors. Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
