  1. The Fifty-Three Man Roster And Practice Squad, 2015

    by , 06-16-15 at 05:54 AM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    It may seem a bit early to predict a fifty-three man roster and practice squad, but this particular blog will come with plenty of updates until the actual roster/practice squad is formally announced. The team gathers today for a mandatory mini-camp and the regular season will be here before you know it. Feel free to post your own predictions (post as many as you desire). Please keep any disagreements and debates clean and professional.

    Living in Missouri

    Show me.

    Historians attribute Missouri’s ‘Show Me’ moniker to U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1897 to 1903. While a member of the U.S. House Committee on Naval Affairs, Vandiver attended an 1899 naval banquet in Philadelphia. In a speech there, he declared, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. ...

    Why We Don’t Care

    The 2014 season will come to an end by later this evening as a Super Bowl Champion is crowned. Two weeks ago, each team played the penultimate game in their conference and now they have a chance to win it all. To be sure, there is a lot of excitement from fans of both teams today and each side is hoping for the ultimate bragging rights over the next several months. A parade in downtown Boston or Seattle will take place in the coming days and it is certain to be ...

    Recon Special part 2-Cowboys fans and the Callahan defection

    by , 01-16-15 at 10:43 AM
    Well, we seem to have stirred up a bit of turmoil among Dallas fans by grabbing Callahan. Some seem to take a "Good riddance" stance but a lot are not very happy with him leaving...especially to join the Redskins.


    Anyone want to try to explain this one?

    What happened that he would want to sign to Washington? Either he hated Dallas or Washington just paid him some crazy money.

    Recon Special-Chargers fans react to Berry coming to the Redskins

    by , 01-14-15 at 03:25 PM
    I thought I'd check in with Bolts fans to see what their reaction to the Joe Barry becoming our new DC might be.

    To be honest, the majority don't seem all that broken-hearted.


    Now the Redskins are interviewing Joe Barry for their DC position. Don't these idiots know that our coaches suck?


    dont wanna change any of our coaches
    they got 4th string guys to perform
  6. Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2015 (Continual Updates)

    by , 01-13-15 at 04:24 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Welcome to the 2015 offseason. We are taking a different approach for the new football year as we combine our mocks with the free agency period. We’ll have periodic updates as warranted and will use just this one entry instead of posting multiple blogs.

    In about a week or so we will begin an in depth look at free agency. The first mock will come later this week and then it will be on something of a hiatus until early March. The mocks will slowly increase in number as we get closer ...

  8. Manage This. Please.

    by , 01-02-15 at 01:23 PM (Cake or Death?)
    We've all had managers, yes? Good ones, bad ones, horrendous ones. We've all had people who exert a great deal of control over one aspect of our life, sometimes to the point that it impacts other areas of our life. I apologize in advance, but I want you to remember what it was like when you had your worst manager ever.

    You know, the guy who scheduled you at times you specifically requested off? The gal who was unrelenting and demanding, without ever expressing anything but distaste ...

    The Cowboys game 2: Play 'Em or Sit 'Em

    by , 12-25-14 at 11:14 AM
    Dallas has clinched the division and-abnormally it seems-an end-of-season game with the Redskins isn't going to hurt their playoff chances. win or lose.

    However, Cowboys fans do remember the smack-downs we've given Romo almost every time we play them and that dominated most game discussions.


    We need to make them pay for their blitzing. We have the blueprint from what they did last time. I say bait them and make them pay.
