    Merthiolate

    Any child of the 60ís or 70ís knows what Iím talking about. God help you if you skinned your knee, cut your finger, or suffered some other childhood trauma resulting in an open wound. Back then, a minor injury of that sort meant only one thing Ė Merthiolate. The bright orange hot poker-colored antiseptic liquid was the weapon of choice against infection. And it was a perfect symbol in that era of what we all were taught. If it hurts it must be good for you. Applied directly to a wound, Merthiolate ...

    It is an honor and a privilege for me to write this weeks blog! Much like others here I have never written a blog before, so if this sucks just blow it off as SC being drunk as we all know that sometimes this team makes us drink, and by drink I mean drink heavily!

    I would like to start first by thanking John, Mark, and Bob for creating BGO. This place and the people in it are pretty awesome. I consider a lot of people here very close ...

    The Giants game 1 Redskins Fear Factor?

    by , 09-23-14 at 04:14 PM
    Boy, it didn't take long for Giants fan boards to explode with threads and comments about Thursdays game.

    It isn't all that surprising, though, given the numbers our offense and run D put up, even in a painful loss, it gets people's attention.

    I also noticed Giants fans have a tendency to make longer posts than most.

    The Eagles-1st time Around: Are the Redskins for real?

    by , 09-18-14 at 02:33 PM
    Beat an opponent, even a weak one, 41-10 and sack their QB 10 times people tend to notice.

    Do it with your starting QB being injured early and your backup QB playing most of the game and people really notice.

    Eagles fans did.

    The threads and comments about their upcoming game with the Skins started even before their big MNF encounter with the Colts.

    (8 threads on six fan boards with a total of 266 posts as of Thursday noon.)

    Redskins vs Jaguars


    The more things change, the more things stay the same. A new head coach. A new special teams coach. More weapons on offense. Yet the results are the same. Turnovers. Botched special teams plays. Weak pass protection. Watching the game, the offense seemed to carry over from where it left off in the preseason: impotent (Sorry Boone, I donít think theyíll be the offensive juggernaut you predicted). ...

    The Jaguars: Stumbling from the Gate

    by , 09-10-14 at 10:05 PM
    The Jaguars are coming off a spectacular meltdown against the Eagles and for some it was demoralizing as you might expect.


    For some of them it sounds like they expect a looooong Sunday coming up.

    I'd love to provide them with a long afternoon of anguish myself.

    WR Cecil Shorts being out makes a lot of Jags fans not very happy.

    Losing SS Jonathan Cyprian in the Eagles game doesn't help their outlook either.
