    Basically they are saying the AGIII is far to intelligent for a loser organisation as the Rednecks (Well that is what I like calling them).

    Wow, someone actually knows how to spell 'racist'. I'm impressed.

    I'm pretty sure it's actually "rasist."

    I don't know who AG3 is.

    Us having put up with Grossman long enough entitles us to the greatness of RG3 for a while. Hell, the last six or seven years' worth of QBs alone would do that, sans Grossman.

    My mistake. Hey I don't really follow the sport, but that picture was most definitely a good laugh.

    Yeah, I think so. The last decent QB we had (Before Brennan :D and Collins :D) was Brunell. That speaks volumes about how awful our QBs have been.

    Shanahanigans and his golf cart had a little fender-bender with Brian Orakpo at a golfing event. Article and video. Two things have come of it: 1. I am now creeped out by Mike's smile. It looks weird. Not enough scowl. :p 2. The comments on ExtremeSkins. The best one:

    Our quarterbacks haven't been particularly awful, most of them have had potential (IMO; take Campbell in Oakland last year as an example), the chief problem being that Snyder doesn't understand the concept of cultivating internal talent.

    The problem with Campbell was that Zorn wanted to use him in an offensive scheme that he was physically not built for and couldn't be trained for quickly. If he'd been used in the manner for which he was drafted, Campbell would've been fine. Not great, surely, but fine.

    How did RG3 get to transfer from Baylor to a Big East team?

    Looking at the horrible and racist history of the redskins, I am very conflicted about rooting for RG3's success there. For now, I wish him and the organization luck for years to come but only time will heal the damage the redskins and their previous owners inflicted on this sport.

    Considering that the owner in question has been gone since the 1960s AND that this
    team (per Mike Wilbon) has the largest and most involved black fanbase in the NFL, I have no idea what your point is.

    In addition to their blatantly racist mascot and branding, Washington was the last team in the NFL to integrate.

    Which was what, fifty years and two owners ago? We just drafted a black quarterback with the second overall pick for crying out loud! I mean, yeah, racism is bad, but it isn't like we have to burn down the whole franchise to be rid of it. :rolleyes:

    It's the name and mascot now days. It's inexcusable. The only reason it persists is that the aboriginal population is small and primarily not near Washington. But it's really just cosmetic compared to the real injustice that the various tribes continue to face.

    I vote we force the Redskins to move somewhere in the Southwest and see how things go from there.
