    Week 6 @ Nashville

    The Ravens are not going to lose to Dean Pees. I think they win big.

    Week 5 @ Cleveland

    Oh well, that Pittsburgh win was nice. Back to reality. Browns defense was way more Ravens-like than the Ravens. Can't have turnovers inside the 5 yard line. Another blocked field goal? Really? What's up with Crabtree? His drops are starting to cost them. I didn't like the play calling. Should have run the ball more.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    Gausman starting for Atlanta game 3. So depressing seeing all of our ex-players in the post season. I am rooting for Manny while I have the chance. If he goes to NY or Boston I will stop.

    Week 2 vs Cincinnati Thursday Night Game

    Flacco did not play great yesterday. He was very inaccurate. Brown bailed him out a couple of times. More accurate throws and perhaps they could have had a TD or two on some of those WR throws.. He also has to cut down on the strip sacks. He has such a slow wind up. Just when you expect the ball to be thrown it is getting stripped. It's been a problem his whole career. I've come to the conclusion Dalton is better than Flacco. I know Dalton has AJ Green, but how good really are his other guys? Cincy moves the ball with ease. Flacco has the best wide outs he has had since Boldin, Torrey, and Jacoby yet we see the same 4 yard check downs over and over. The lack of urgency during the final two minutes was inexcusable. I am also very disappointed with the defense. They gave up way too many big plays. No pressure on Dalton. All this talk about being special and they looked like the same old group coached by Dean Pees. Tough schedule coming up. This could be a long year.

    RG3 yay or nay?

    They have to keep him. I think he is too valuable as a backup. He has looked good in pre-season. Lamar is not ready. His mentorship of Lamar is a huge benefit. Would love to see it continue. I think RG3 stays. What say you?

    Preseason Game 2: Monday Night 8/20 at IND

    First chance I have gotten to see Jackson. I am surprised his poor play is not generating much talk. Wildly inaccurate, doesn't see open receivers, runs backwards 25 yards,. Dude has a long way to go.

    How do you rate the return on the Britton trade?

    On the plus side,, I heard on the radio two of the three guys obtained were in the Yankees' top 15 prospect list. Perhaps that means the Yankees' farm system isn't that great.

    Perriman Still Here, Receives Roster Bonus

    Interesting. They must see something in Perriman that gives them hope he can turn it around. 3 mil in cap space does sounds like a useful chunk of change that can be better applied elsewhere. Perhaps they are grooming him as the kick returner this season?

    Ravens lose two OTAs, face fine

    I don't have a problem with Harbaugh's comments. It's a valid observation. I am more concern with both of our rookie TE's dealing with issues keeping them out of practice. Are these guys going to be injury prone? Are they soft? Not a good sign that both of these guys are missing practices so soon into their career.

    And Manny will wear #8... the pain is REAL!

    Perhaps the more likely scenario is Manny always preferred #8 but it was taken here?

    Caps need new head coach

    Interesting article. The Caps certainly have made all the right moves since McPhee left. Perhaps I should give the current GM his due. And you're right about the Knights. Let's see if McPhee can continue to build upon what they started out there in Vegas.

    Caps need new head coach

    I am not sold on Ted being a 'very' good owner. No complaints about his running of the Caps, although I'm not sure I would have fired George McPhee as GM. McPhee's fingerprints are all over this Cap's roster and his guidance of the Vegas Golden Knights speaks volumes. He made one bad trade in my opinion (Erat and some other guy for Forsberg who blew up once he got to Nashville). The current GM seems a bit egotistical in some of his comments. I was put off how they treated Trotz. Meanwhile Ted's running of the Wizards has been nothing to boast about. A change at GM has been needed for years. They continue to build around players not worthy of building around. As a result they have a mediocre , under achieving ,over paid roster.

    Caps need new head coach

    This is a risky move by the Caps. Trotz is a good coach who is well liked and respected by everyone. There is a lot of value in that stability beyond how many wins the team had (which by the way is probably number one in the league during Trotz' tenure). Trotz' contract was one of the lowest in the league. By winning the cup his contract automatically got extended for two more years at that low value. He rightfully asked for a raise and some stability after not getting an extension last off season - a blunder by the Caps in my opinion. They could have had him locked up for reasonable value last year. They chose the Flacco route. I don't know why DC teams just aren't willing to shell out top dollar for good coaches. Just like the Nats, the Caps have had a revolving door. They seem really high on current Cap assistant Todd Reirden which is probably why they played hardball with Trotz. It would be really depressing if they low ball Reirden and he balks. Not sure how much leverage he has since he has one more year on his assistant contract. Reirden may be a hot head coaching candidate, but so was Adam Oates. This is a huge risk by the Caps.

    2018 Caps Stanely Cup ???? (Update: Stanley Cup Champions!!!!)

    So glad for the team, the city, and the fans. Last night's game was nail biting. Only wish the last few minutes didn't get ruined for me as one of my neighbors had to set off fire works immediately after the Caps won. I was watching on my dvr about 5 minutes behind. Just sucked all the excitement out of the final few minutes.

    2018 Caps Stanely Cup ???? (Update: Stanley Cup Champions!!!!)

    The Knights also did not have to compete with another expansion team. This allowed them to better control the draft process. Existing teams were eager to make trades with them such as, "you agree to draft player 'x' and we'll give you player 'y'. Vegas did such a deal with Pittsburgh netting an additional player in addition to Fleury while the Knights probably would have drafted Fleury anyway. In the Caps' case, they expected Vegas to select goal tender Grubauer and were surprised to lose Nate Schmidt instead. I am a little concern about the over reaction to yesterday's victory. It was a great win no doubt, but DC fans are acting like it is over. It is not. Vegas should have been up 2-0 last night. Could have very easily been a totally different game last night. We've seen teams come back from 3-1 deficits before. The Caps seem to have figured out the Knights. Let's hope that continues. The next game will be the toughest. If the Knights win game 5 then pressure is put on the Capitals to win at home. Momentum can change quickly. With that said, the Caps should win. Let's go Caps!
