A Cobra Destined To Be a ‘Skin

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Here he is ‘Skins. A guy who can tackle. And he’s perfect for a team that keeps beating itself. He tackles his own teammate. Sign him up.

He plays for the Las Vegas Cobras. Hmmm. Gotta wonder what the spread was on this game.

And when they talk about the spread in Vegas, they don’t mean the quarterback running the option.

Redskins in Trade Talks for Raiders’ Pigeon

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

According to a Redskins source, Daniel Snyder is negotiating with Al Davis in an attempt to trade for the Raiders’ special teams pigeon who was the star of yesterday’s Eagles-Raiders game.

Without a playbook in his language, the pigeon lined up on the 20 for the kickoff and flew perfectly  in formation with the Raiders to the 20 at the other end, watched to be sure the tackle was made, and then went back to pecking the turf.

They Are Who We Thought They Were: Lions 19, Redskins 14

Lisa: Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?
Homer: No, I do not know what schadenfreude is, please tell me because I am dying to know …
Lisa: It’s a German term for “shameful joy”, taking pleasure in the suffering of others.

That pretty much sums up my feelings today. See some of my favorite quotes/links about the game at Surrounded by ‘Skins.

The Redskins Think Your Team Sucks

Seriously, he's their voice of reason.

Seriously, he's their voice of reason.


The ‘Skins spent most of the week blaming the fans for booing them and the media for being too tough on them. But then the voice of reason grabbed the mic. Believe it or not, the voice of reason was Clinton Portis.

‘Skins Horrible & Win; Cowboys Dominate & Lose

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Give credit where due to whoever first said “turnovers decide games.” Yesterday, the ‘Skins played a horrible offensive game — nine points on five red-zone possessiona — but matched the Rams with only one turnover apiece and they won.

The Cowboys offense ran all over the Giants, but gave up four turnovers (counting a fumble on a kickoff return) to none for the Giants and lost on a walkoff field goal to the otherwise outmatched Giants.
