I'm sayin'!

Boswell needs to go. THere's no reason not to make the change. None. Cut him, sign someone else. It couldn't get worse.

Nice blitz & sack by Hilton.

He is one guy in our secondary I do like, along with Haden.

Can we please convert this field position into points, boys? 3 facemasks so far. Let's get something to show for it.

Laugh

I just watched this little pimple-faced kicker from the Chargers connect on a 59-yarder vs. Cinci. Made me throw up in my mouth a little...

WTF??? Boswell hit the upright, just dumb luck that the ball went through the uprights.

He has GOT to go. Cut him as soon as the clock hits zero. Make him buy his own plane ticket home after the game.

I had to look up the stats. I've never despised a kicker the way I despised David Trout in 1981. He missed 8 PATs (38 of 46) in an era when it was still a 20-yard kick and hit only 12 of 17 FGs. He was so bad that there came a point in the season where we just stopped attempting FGs if it was 4th and manageable. In my view, he cost the Steelers at least 3 games in 1981.

Boswell isn't as bad as Trout yet... but in the modern era, he's having one of the worst years I've seen since Trout.

I have to tell you I believe we have the best starting tandem at wide receiver in the league

Nice run by Dobbs, and another stupid penalty on the Raiders.

Hope Ben is okay and back soon.

That was a SWEET run by Samuels. Nice seeing Pouncey out front leading the way.

Why would we run a slow-developing run like that with Dobbs in? Stupid f-ing call.

Line gave Dobbs all the time in the world there. Not a great throw, but Washington once again fails to make a play.
