    On a side note, it is very good to see you posting.
    You imply it every time you call him "Shortwell." It has gotten to the point where it doesn't even resemble an argument at all - just a vaguely argument-shaped object that contributes nothing to this forum except noise. Even if it were a problem, it wouldn't be a top-10 priority on this dumpster fire of a football team.

    Long story short, you're a cool guy and I've always admired you, but this is a little annoying.

    a pass play over 20 yards would be absolutely amazing. oh, and, when out of the pocket, with no hope...throw the fucking ball.

    Mama McNabb is gone? Me too, this is fucking embarassing.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Sadly, McNabb isn't close to our biggest issue tonight.

    He's not lit it up, but he's not been that bad.

    Our OL by far is the biggest concern. McNabb can't get time to make a throw, AP can't get a hole to run.

    The blocking by "Ol' Sully" was absolutely fucking pathetic.


    The BIGGEST concern for me, one we won't easily fix is coaching.

    We had a promising drive, and we kill it by putting Webb in at QB.

    I disagree with Marrdro, in that the wildcat or "blazer" isn't completely pointless. It has its uses, but NOT on 3rd and 4.

    we were doing fine, keep doing what we're doing.

    The playcalling is just trying to be too cute. Massive motions by TE's, playaction sack. Good job Musgrave. Just start with the basicss, we're not going to be faking anybody.

    Expect Ponder to be the starter in week 7! Wouldn't be surprising if he were!

    Oh, and they're keeping 8 in to block our DL, so I understand not getting sacks.

    however, that means they only have 3 receivers out on routes. We should damn well be able to cover 3 receivers.

    I swear if Ponder doesn't throw 5 TDs then I will hate him forever and come up with an annoying nickname that I will forever refer to him as.

    Ponder looked very good in the first drive. Moved around and avoided the sacks that McNabb couldn't. Definitely provided a spark and, more importantly, he actually hit a receiver or two when they were standing upright (not trying to dig one out of the dirt) and could try to make something happen.

    Ponder looked pretty good in garbage time. Give him the reps this week. Surely not going to hurt at this point.
