Wow. That is the word i can use to describe this one. The movie was down right brilliant. It has an amazing story and the visuals are literally the best I have ever seen in a movie. I had received an e-mail from a friend asking me why i hadn't seen avatar. It was a rhetorical question, and i wasn't overly thrilled about the prospects of this one, but i was floored. I had low expectations going into this film and I left speechless. This is one of the best movie's I've seen this year, and I think the more i watch it, the more it will climb my all time list. James Cameron set out to change the way we look at movies, and he has done it.

Bonus review!

Up in the Air was a very great movie. It had a great cast, strong emotional moments and George Clooney delivered. I may disagree with his political views but I will see just about any movie he acts in. See this one too!

New GM Same Crap

I wasn't expecting the first game under Bruce Allen to show me how far the redskins had come from their losing ways. Hell I'm not expecting next season to be any different. I am very excited about this hire. Allen will take over all the aspects of running this team and Snyder will sit back and cut fat checks. This is what the redskins have been missing for the last 10 years. Cerato and Snyder was a disaster, Hopefully Snyder will learn to keep his ideas the hell off the football field and back into what ever the hell business he's in. Honestly I have no idea what he does, if you told me he owns Grey Hound I would probably believe you.

Monday night was appalling. The worst part is the Offense got their act together. In the first half the redskins had nothing. It was a 24 point game and the offense had like -2 yards. On the last drive they started to move the ball, then with 12 second left instead of taking a time out, taking 1 shot at the end zone and if they miss oh well kick a field goal! they wait until there are 2 seconds left, then call a time out and try a swing door for the TD. So what Jim Zorn wants everyone to take away from this is he thinks Hunter Smith is better at throwing TD's than Jason Campbell. Damn you OLD MAN!!! kick a god damn field goal! get on the board!

Second Half the Offense drives right down and scores. If they had taken a field goal, its now only a 2 possession game. Not that it mattered the defense really failed in this one. But maybe a few points a little momentum could get the D to step up. Our secondary is bad. Probably one of the worst in the league. God knows how we've been able to keep this top 10 against the pass illusion going for so damn long. COVER YOUR GOD DAMN MAN! why is this so hard? LaRon Landry TACKLE! don't hit, TACKLE! Wrap him up and bring him to the ground don't fly like a missile at the spot your hope he's going to be! You miss so many times going for the big hits, your a worthless bust! Go play in the UFL.

The giants are not a great team this year, except when they play the redskins. They suck, its just the skins suck more. Thier passing game is week, not against us! They can't create QB pressure, they sacked and hit campbell like every time he went to throw! They can't run, well the redskins can't stop Amahd FRIGGIN Bradshaw that shit stain who only plays well 2 games a year!

Top Needs for the redskins:

O-Line - Campbell can't play when he's being hit every god damn time he drops back to pass

Secondary - Maybe we should get someone to cover opposing receivers and just maybe a real free safety would be nice.

Linebacker/Running Back - We need studs in both of these positions, but not as bad as we need others. A fast Back who can catch and reverse field is he needs to, Chris Johnson is pretty good, think he'd come to Washington?


Dallas Too

Sack Machine

Now i understand that Sacks do not win football games. Last year the league leader in Sacks were the Dallas Cowboys who failed to make the playoffs. But you can't over-look the importance of putting pressure on the opposing QB. Since about February of this year I have been high on Defensive End Brian Orakpo. His drive, strength, motor, maturity, and talent had proven him to be the class of this years Defensive players in the Draft. My surprise as teams passed on him all the way to number 13. Kansas City reached for a different Defensive End in Tyson Jackson, who was rated much lower. The Packers and Bills both took Defensive linemen before Brian Orakpo was taken, while these teams have clearly seen their folly by now, their loss was the Redskins gain.

Brian Orakpo was brought in to rush the passer. But the redskins had a more pressing need at linebacker. So the team thought they would mold him into a hybrid style player. This had some good in it, despite removing him from his natural position. It helped Orakpo develop more skills as a run stopper and in pass coverage. His transition made him a complete defender. But his shining moments have come with his hand in the dirt. 11 sacks on the season for the rookie. Earlier this year there was talk that recently rookies with decent sack totals have been a bust in later years. Gaines Adams came in his rookie season with 6 sacks but has yet to top that in two more seasons. Amobi Okoye had 5.5 his rookie year two years later his career total is 8. David Harris had 5 in his rookie season two years later his career total is 11. The biggest disappointments has been Bears player Mark Anderson who had 12 sacks his rookie year has never regained his former magic. Orakpo stands apart form these men as one of the Few whose sack total and ability do not look like a one year wonder. His ability to get after the passer is comparable to Dwight Freeny, Shawne Merriman, Jevon Kearse, and Julius Peppers. As are his rookie numbers. What makes his ability more amazing is that unlike the Sack kings mentioned above, he only gets to rush the passer half the time. The rest he is forced into coverage situations. Next season there is no reason to believe Orakpo will do anything other than play DE and that is when we will see what this amazing athlete is capable of. The rookie sack Record is 14.5 Orakpo stands at 11 with three games remaining, if he can break that record then Washington will have a Rookie of the year on their squad for the first time since 1975.

At this point in their Season the Redskins are now a pitiful 3-9. Yet this season has been marked by the what ifs and the most aggravating losses I have ever seen. Im going to break down the season in my own mind and make myself feel worse, if not for some scientific purpose then for the mere fact that I am really really bored.

Week 1 - Redskins Open the Season at the Giants for the second straight year. This is annoying, we don't play them well and seem to have a mental block against them. The offense plays like crap, the Defense hasn't learned that Sacking a QB is a positive thing. Skins lose a bad game to fall 0-1. Not the end of the world, but they need to build on this for the next few weeks as they face a bunch of losers.

Week 2 - Home Opener against the Rams. Redskins don't find the Endzone and the offense sputters so badly in the redzone that we almost give this one away. But a W is a W at the end of the day Redskins even out at 1-1

Week 3 - Disaster mode begins early this year. The redskins get beat by a team who hasn't won a game in over a year. Campbell plays well but the Run game is no where to be seen. The first two starts of his career Stafford opponents blitz and confuse him. The Redskins decide to give him time to work with a bland and easy Defense. The Redskins gift the Lions a win to fall to 1-2. So begins the Death Spiral. Had the Defense played to its potential the Redskins would have won this game easily and been 2-1.

Week 4 - Home again with the lowly Bucs. The redskins are playing the bottom feeders this year. With the running game pushing itself upright for a single week the redskins squeak out a win against a team they should have no trouble with. easy win made difficult. 2-2 (should be 3-1)

Week 5 - The spiral continues. The redskins play tough hard football and take the lead over a team they are most likely even with in terms of skill and leadership. Then in the most interesting call of the game, Byron Westbrook is hurled into Randal El on a punt in the 4th quarter causing the fair catch to bounce off him. the Panthers Recover and the ball is awarded to them for this. Then in true redskins fashion the defense takes a nap and lets Johnathan Stewart run for a game winning TD. Redskins fall to 2-3 (should be 4-1)

Week 6 - Jim Zorn felt benching Campbell at half time would help spark his team from his anemic play. Instead he sent in the perennial bench warmer Todd Colins to complete 1 pass and threw the game away. This was a turning point for the redskins. When Zorn was relieved of his ability to call plays in favor of Bingo Mastermind Sherm Lewis. Redskins lose another easy game. 2-4 (should be 5-1)

Week 7 - Redskins don't understand the concept of the speed player or a double move. D-Jackson runs rampant. The offense puts up its customary 17 points and goes home to cry. Changes are made, but no effect yet. 2-5 (should be 5-2)

BYE Week - Redskins stick to the plan with the Bingo Mastermind unaware of the spark of life this team will soon receive.

Week 9 - Going into Atlanta the season was all but mathematically over. In the first half Michael Turner decided it would be fun to fun all over this apparently talented Redskins Defense. But something happened in the second half. The offense started to click. The line decided to no longer be a revolving door of failure. Portis decided that running the ball was no longer something he wanted to do. And success came. A victory did not, but the change was lasting, and sparked this team into action. 2-6 (should be 5-3)

Week 9 - Redemption came in the form of a victory! Breaking the barrier of the evil number 17 the redskins outscored outplayed and out everything the Denver Broncos. Bingo Mastermind Sherm Smith was no longer the butt of a bunch of Bingo Jokes, he was recognized as the Man who allowed the skins to score points. Life was returned to the Washington Hopeful as they saw that not only were the redskins mathematically back in it, they were spiritually back in it. 3-6 (should be 6-3)

Week 10 - Back on track the Redskins dominate the cowboys for 57 mins. Better on D better of O, but a severe lack of scoring cost them. With only a 6-0 lead Dallas lead a comeback drive the redskins could not match. A heart breaker for the Skins who seem to invent ways to lose. A game they should have won, but in the NFL there aren't should have wins. 3-7 (should be 7-3)

Week 11 - Once again the Redskins are poised for success creating a large 4th quarter lead, but once again they invent a way to lose a game. Instead of a game sealing TD the redskins settle for a field goal. a decision that costs them as Philly rushes down field scores, converts a 2 point conversion to tie it and later kicks a field goal to win the game. Once again the redskins outplay their opponent and lose. a disturbing trend, but something to build on. 3-8 (should be 8-3)

Week 12 - Against the most talented offense since the 99 rams, the greatest show on turf was grinded to a screeching halt by this Washington D. Until the saints learned that redskins still haven't learned what a double move is. also that LaRon Landry is actually a Strong Safety being disguised as a free safety. Still the Redskins outplay, outheart, and outman the saints for 57 mins. Then with the clock running low, the saints out of time outs Suisham pulls his most unclutchness out from the depths of his ass and pootches a 23 yard field goal. 23 yarders are gimmees. screw everthing you hear about how the NFL is hard and anything you do is hard etc etc etc thats fucking loser talk. Suisham is a fucking loser and thats why when the skins need him. when they could be winning games off his leg he chokes and shits all over everything. FIRE HIS ASS and get a kicker who understands the whole between the uprights aspect of kicking. Suisham you are officially a shit stain. 2-9 (should be 9-3)

Coulda woulda shoulda, about describes this season for the skins. With Oakland next and then a game against the cowboys who believe winning in december is for sissies the skins could be 11-5 this year and a lock for a playoff spot. Instead they found ways to suck the wins away and wallow the postseason away at home. Many things can be taken from this season so far.

1. The redskins are close to being a good, team. In fact I would say we are the best bad team in the NFL.

2. We play to our competition.

3. The skins might not need to look outside the franchise for the next head coach. clearly Zorn is a tool and has to go, but why not make Bingo Mastermind or Danny Smith the next HC? what have we got to lose? its almost working, let it ferment for one off season and then bring the boys back for one more go.

Watch out for Dan Snyder, he's a dick!

Finally HAIL TO THE REDSKINS! we may not make the playoffs this year, and next year might be all false hope and rampant disappointment, but this team has a lot of heart and a fan base that loves it. Go Skins!
