    NFL Thread

    I only watched the highlights but bears didn't look too bad on there. It's a big one tonight with Redskins travelling to Eagles (Me vs King Canary). I'm not massively optimistic, but time will tell. Redskins have a legit defence for the first time in a long time. Derrius Guice is going to be an absolute beast at RB and we have massively upgraded at safety by slotting Landon Collins in on a free agent pick up, so there are some clear positives. WR and QB look a bit meh on paper but may surprise. Case Keenum is the starter (at QB) with Haskins waiting in the wings to take over mid-season. Both have been good in pre-season - Haskins has been flashier but also made quite a few errors with bonehead passes that have been intercepted. I think he'll be a very good QB though once he knocks out the rookie errors so long term the future is fairly bright on QB but this season may be a bit hit or miss. WR - we cut Josh Doctson (1st round pick a few years ago) mainly because he has spent 4 years sucking and doing nothing useful. We haven't seen our 3rd round pick - WR Terry McLaurin - from this year AT ALL in pre-season. Zero snaps.... Lots of rumours they are keeping him under wraps because they think he is going to BLOW UP this year. He's #1 receiver on the depth chart despite not playing a snap so there's a lot of expectation on him from the fanbase as we don't really know what to expect, but clearly the coaches have loved what they've seen out of him. We have a talented young WR group, but the only one with ANY real experience is Paul Richardson. The rest are all rookies or second year players that have been injured through year 1. Steven Sims is the other guy to watch in this group - not down to start on the depth chart but will see some looks in rotation... he has flashed all pre-season and training camp with some big time plays. Our RB group is stacked with Guice, Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson leading the line with Wendell Smallwood (ex-eagle) backing up Thompson. Smallwood has played well against us in the past but will be cut when Bryce Love gets healthy later in the season (and my god when Love is healthy we'll have possibly the best RB stable in the league). Our biggest problem will be Offensive Line. Trent Williams is still holding out - we picked up Donald Penn to start at LT but he's struggled in pre-season - he isn't the perennial pro-bowler he was a few years ago. LG is always a problem for us and the latest experiment to plug the gap is Ereck Flowers who has sucked just as much for us as he did for NYG - we do have a talented 4th rounder (Wes Martin) who will fill that gap later in the season but Flowers is projected starter at the moment so I'd be surprised if he didn't start the first few games at least, which sucks because he's a turnstyle. People just get past him with little to no resistance. Lot of Redskins fans expecting to come out the first 5 games without a single victory. I'm not quite so pessimistic but we have a tough opening run for sure. There are lots of unknowns with the Skins at the moment so it will be interesting to see how they fare. Not looking forward to playing against DJax again (love that dude) but McLaurin ran the 40 at the combine faster than DJax - Like I say, lots of expectation resting on McLaurin. **** the Eagles. Hail to the Redskins.

    Neither, just frustrated at having to repeatedly explain the same thing whilst you make stupid arguments that hold no water, and your persistent lack of capacity to understand.

    Boris would go to prison for life you utter muppet. And the bill requires the consent of parliament not of the government. I really don’t understand why you can’t understand something so simple.

    A law does not require government consent you complete doughnut. See all the previous delay bills etc.

    Even though he's demonstrably both a liar and untrustworthy? Are people really thick enough to not see that given he has clearly demonstrated both in the past few weeks? Whether people vote for him despite that is irrelevant, surely most people in this country aren't so inscrutably thick they can't see the obvious.... I know Moy and his ilk are certainly that thick, but it seems a stretch to put that on the entire population

    Except that would be totally illegal and kill the Tories chances of ever being re-elected. We may be out on Halloween but we'd be back in again within a fortnight as the courts would never let that stand, and to think otherwise is utterly moronic. Not sure why you think it was "clearly agreed" that Corbyn would agree to GE?

    If Boris doesn't go to ask for an extension, that will be illegal as the law will be that he has to ask for an extension. The law, surprisingly, is not illegal. IF you genuinely believe this, which you seem to be repeating in some trancelike state, then you're really not getting any of this.

    Gravity shirts are the kids version of the full squad shirts. Don’t know if its a legal thing or a club decision but the premise is having children walking round advertising a betting company was not good form so the kids sizes are sponsored by Gravity (which I believe is a trampoline park).

    They have agreed some kind of deal overnight to let it through Lords in time to receive royal assent. I hope the price of that wasn’t an October election... not much commentary as it happened about 1.30am but it seems the government stopped the filibuster simply to save face as realised it wouldn’t work.... hope that is the case.

    Down to less than 80 amendments to vote on in Lords. Poor bastards are going to be stuck there for hours.

    Just in the nick of time to demonstrate he doesn't actually understand how any of this works, Mad Moyo shows up and spouts impossible things that someone has told him are possible. It's come full circle, this is how we got into the whole Brexit mess.

    I'm not making any political comment about the expenses claim, merely querying your use of the adjective "honest" to describe a bloke who is clearly a bit dodgy. I'm not trying to make any argument on the issues at hand, or it's relation to Brexit, just pointing out an obvious flaw with your post. Will happily sacrifice the pathetic attempt at a bribe to get rid of Boris, Brexit and this whole incompetent carnival.

    Are you OK? You seem awfully passive aggressive at the moment. Almost like your gloating last week at the prorogation has come round and given you a big, embarassing slap of karma. You're lashing out faster than Boris in a ten year old rugby match... I am fairly sure there is a word for people who are unnecessarily precious and emotionally fragile....

    Sorry Jools, but you surely aren't giving credit to his bizarre rusty car analogy? He made a right ar5e of himself. Honest Nige is clearly not all too bright, as he claimed £375 per MONTH from the taxpayer to fund his mobile phone bill, and additionally 4 digital cameras in the space of 15 months. That is either dodgy or incompetent. Take your pick.
