    Mike Shannahan, the NFL's official Belichick-killing coach, will once again be in a position to match up with the Pats in 2011, if two conditions pertain:

    1) The NFL retains the current rotation of intraconference division games going forward (the current formula was proposed as going through 2009... although I don't see a reason to change it.)

    2) Dan Snyder doesn't get a wild hare up his rear and decide he has to fire Shanny and hire the guy that introduced the A-11 offense in a high school league, or the moral equivalent thereof.

    For soap opera fans, by the way, here's the state of Washington sports: The star running back (Portis), who is injured, says the quarterback isn't a real leader (a la Tiki Barber's comments on Eli Manning... but he waited until he was off the team.) The quarterback points out that the runningback isn't even a team captain. The owner is BFF's with Portis, but just hired Shannahan, the coach Portis did not rub the right way in Denver. But then, this is the owner that usually hires anybody BUT a head coach with recent NFL head coaching experience (see Gibbs, Joe; Zorn, Jim; Lewis, Sherman; Spurrier, Steve.) The measure of Shanny's control, the local savants say, will be whether Clinton Portis will have a job next year.

    Over in basketball, the Wizards have players pulling guns on each other in the locker room, although to be fair they were re-named the Wizards because the Bullets sounded violent. Probably the media should say they pulled wands on each other. It's like Harry Potter: The Goblet of Meth or something.

    Anyhoo, I just wanted to get the Shanny news to the masses and use the tenuous Pats connection to type a couple of things I thought were funny. These all go to "you guys have no idea how cool it is to have a team that shuts the hell up in the media and don't pull guns on one another." You know, the perspective thing again.

    Okay enough said. Hoping the thread doesn't get moved, but understand if it does. That's the news from DC, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average.

    Maybe you were too busy arguing politics and missed the murder that was 2008, over the Broncos.

    Right, 41-7 on Monday night if memory serves, which it obviously doesn't, which is why I googled it.

    So evidently I need to add "except that one time." Consider it added.

    Weird, what sticks in my mind was that little 2005 playoff game.

    Aye, same here unfortunately. Nighmares of Champ Bailey.

    Yeah, I'm in VA too, and it's been a riot watching these clowns on the Redskins try to run an organization. Makes for some great radio.

    But even at that, something good came of it... we got to see how fast a tight end can cross the length of an entire football field diagonally.
