OK, we're finished here. Done in one. Well played.

I think this frat would be in a lot of trouble for hazing - you have to break your leg to join? That's gonna be a lawsuit.

Also, forcing someone to talk/listen to Joe Theismann after they break their leg is just piling on, isn't it?

The Redskins will draft him and Mike Shanahan will clear him to play in week 1.

Super Chronic: The Redskins will draft him and Mike Shanahan will clear him to play in week 1.


I gotta say it again.  As a long-time DC resident, I got a lot of pent up contempt for Snyder as an owner and as a human piece of garbage.  The lawsuits against bad press, the unbelievably cheap tricks, confiscating signs, the constant meddling resulting in shiatty teams and coach after coach after coach.

I have never had more contempt for that worthless piece of shiat then when I saw RGIII, on his last play of the season, crimpled and limp with pain, lying on the field.  That moment exemplifies everything that is wrong with Snyder's philosophy as an owner, and strongly suggests to me that Shanahan is little more than a yes man to that tool.

They get an exciting player, a guy everyone loves, a guy that gets people excited about the Skins again, and they literally run him into the ground until he is broken.  Well, if he does come back at less than 100%, it will be a while before T-shirt and ticket sales drop, Danny Boy!  And if anyone complains, just sue 'em!

I've seen the prostate commercials. Let's hope there's no video for that too.

It occurs to me that Lattimore might be an interesting pick for the Seahawks, given their dearth of available roster spots.  They can get him at a low draft slot relative to his talent, stash him on IR for a year, then let him compete for a job in 2014.  Let him focus 100% on his rehab without giving a second's thought to coming back prematurely.  Lynch takes a lot of punishment and you never know if he'll wear down at a young age, and if that happens, Turbin could probably use some competition.  Lattimore is a back in the same mold as Lynch and Turbin.

Baltimore is like the bizarro Washington in terms of NFL/MLB.

We have a storied MLB franchise with crappy ownership who has had a string of yes-men providing crappy teams with terrible splash FA signings that are overpaid and don't perform. They have managed occasional success, particularly in a surprising season last year.

Our NFL team is a new-ish transplant, has great ownership who is involved but not meddling, and had great success early with home-grown talent and FA acquisition.

It's the Skins/Nats in opposite sports. As a Baltimore fan more into football than baseball I'm happy with it - but I feel bad for my Skins fan extended family.

I seem to remember Adrian Peterson blowing out his knee in Oklahoma and scaring off a lot of interest.

how'd that work out for everyone but the Vikings?

The Cadillac Williams method - great player - run him until he breaks

Lattimore is a great kid. If his rehab as going as well as it sounds a team is going to get a great bargain on a guy with a lot of talent and none of the locker room poisoning ego that usually accompanies such talent. He really is the kind of guy you want your athletic hero's to be.

How bad was Kevin Ware's injury?

IT'S OVER NINE THEISMANNS!

Interesting, because that never happened.

/but yes, he was viewed as injury prone (though his college injuries were shoulder, high ankle sprain, and broken collarbone
