Thoughts On Redskins vs. Ravens

Not a great performance by any measure. Several players made some key plays, but several players made nothing. But I have to chalk it up to building some character. We looked like a team with a hand tied behind it's back vs. a gang of ruthless savages... which was somewhat expected.

Now, I'm no member of the coaching staff, and you never want to see 0 touchdowns put up by your team in a game, but I also believe that our preseason gameplan is nothing of indication as to what to expect come time for the regular season. There's no way Mike Shanahan is giving any opposing team enough footage to study yet... especially considering we open the regular season, Sunday Night prime-time Football, against our greatest rival - The Dallas Cowboys. The element of surprise is key.

I've seen very little of this Chris Cooley/Fred Davis on the field at the same time gameplan that the Shanahan's have hinted at, and I see a defense still trying to staple down their timing with their aggressiveness.

I'm not, however, indicating that we didn't get our asses kicked. So many opportunities got left on the field tonight, and so many opportunities got ripped right from our grasp. Poor tackling, poor passing, poor route-running, poor blocking... but it gives us something on tape to study the wrong, and seek improvement. It's very difficult to fix that which you cannot diagnose.

So while I refuse to take the route of saying, "it doesn't matter, it's just the preseason", I must say, it doesn't matter, it's the preseason... and we've got time to diagnose and treat our problems.




As far as Albert Haynesworth... how do the back-strapless sandals tend to go? Flip... flop... flip... flop.......... STOP this seesaw trash!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
