    3 first round picks and a second round pick in 2012 – This guy should know a travesty when he sees one. Look in the mirror RG Three Sticks – that is a travesty!

      lol, couldn’t be stated any better!

    I’ll bet there are chants for Colt McCoy today. RG “3Go” (three times the ego of mortal men) is truly a fallen star who “had it” but no longer “gets it”. He thinks he’s still the “Big Man on Campus” after getting Shanahan fired. Our own Bruce Allen might be next to get the axe by Dan “Spender”

    The real travesty was the hat RG wore to his press conference. Dude looked like a South Park cartoon.

    I love this article, MC…..I like hearing what the opponents have to say after a loss (or even a win). I like to hear the perspective of the opponent and what he has to say about our team. Gives us (fans) a good perspective of where our team stands.

      In the first paragraph I reference Snoop’s meltdown when the Bucs won in September. Plus when else am I ever going to get a chance to use a SD pic!

    I see Bruce Allen still knows how to draft. 🙂

    I agree with those that say that this falls on B. Allen’s head. I don’t know how he ever found another NFL GM job. In fact, now he’s the President of the Redskins. What did he ever do here to warrant another GM job?

    1. 7.1


      I agree, pinkstob. Didn’t Snyder look at his record in Tampa before hiring him? I also wondered why big brother Jon didn’t tell little brother Jay about Allen’s draft record.

    I think he is only RG2.5 now. I’m pretty sure GMC took a 1/2 out of him with that pancake hit!
