Found April 30, 2012 on Awful Announcing:

A lot of times, funny stuff happens on live TV when you're covering the same event for 243 consecutive hours.  Men start attacking other men for getting pedicures.  Average NFL prospects turn into surefire Hall of Famers.  Old men start frothing at the mouth and yell at you through the TV screen.

But, basic counting is usually something that doesn't get mixed up by on-air personalities.  Unless... you're Herm Edwards during Day 3 of ESPN's NFL Draft coverage.  The Redskins surprising selection of Michigan St. QB Kirk Cousins (after selecting Baylor QB RG3 #2 overall) certainly left many of ESPN's talking heads scratching their, well, heads.  A helpful graphic then showed the congested Redskins QB situation. There's RG3, Rex Grossman, John Beck, and Kirk Cousins... except somewhere Herm seems to think there is a mysterious 5th QB that nobody else can see.  It's times like this where The Count should pop up on screen and help Herm through.  One Redskins quarterbacks ah ah ah... Two Redskins quarterbacks ah ah ah.

Why The Redskins Drafted Kirk Cousins

It was shocking at first and seemed downright illogical, but after further though it makes perfect sense as to why the Washington Redskins drafted Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. After trading a three first round picks and a second rounder to acquire the No. 2 overall pick to draft Baylor quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Robert Griffin III, it is clear...

Report: Redskins had Kirk Cousins rated as their 3rd best QB

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Washington Redskins had former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins rated as their third best quarterback going in this past weekend’s draft.  This means that he was likely only rated lower than Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III and ahead of Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden, Nick Foles, Russell Wilson, etc. The Redskins drafted Cousins...

Why is there a Kirk Cousins-RGIII debate exactly?

The man in DC What the hell is everyone talking about? I usually can see the value in opinion pieces penned by most members of the media. The manufactured crap around the “horrible” and “controversial” nature of Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins joining the Redskins simply baffles me. It started when I read the following SEO headline a few days ago from Ashley Fox’s ESPN...

Redskins release WR Jabar Gaffney

The Washington Redskins have released veteran Jabar Gaffney, their leading receiver last season. Gaffney made 68 catches for 947 yards and five touchdowns in 2011, setting career highs in receptions and yardage and matching a career high in TD catches. He started 15 games in 2011. Washington signed free agents Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan in free agency, and already had five...

Redskins release Jabar Gaffney

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports, the Washington Redskins have released wide receiver Jabar Gaffney. No one knows exactly why Gaffney has been cut.  Maybe it’s because of his Twitter rant, or the fact that the Redskins need to give rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III the number 10 that he’s been wearing. In the end, it doesn’t matter why Gaffney has been released...

Cousins will do fine in Redskins’ family

Why are people feeling sorry for Kirk Cousins? Why do people think his selection by the Washington Redskins was controversial? The Redskins thought he was a value in the fourth round so they took him. Cousins may be a backup. Or Robert Griffin III could be a flop. Then Washington has a backup plan in place. Look no further than 1994, the year Washington drafted both Heath Shuler...

Redskins sign free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff

The Washington Redskins have signed free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff, who played three seasons with the New York Giants before missing last year with a knee injury. Goff was a fifth-round selection by the Giants in 2008. He became a full-time starter in 2010, but he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee shortly before the season opener a year ago and was placed...

Herm Edwards has trouble counting to four

A lot of times, funny stuff happens on live TV when you're covering the same event for 243 consecutive hours.  Men start attacking other men for getting pedicures.  Average NFL prospects turn into surefire Hall of Famers.  Old men start frothing at the mouth and yell at you through the TV screen.

Redskins Release Wide Receiver Jabar Gaffney

For the two or three people imagining a RG3 to Gaffney touchdown combo, it appears that your dream has been shattered. The Redskins announced the release of Gaffney this morning, their most productive wide receiver in 2011. His agent had requested permission to seek a trade prior to the draft and the team granted it, but no match could be made. Gaffney led the Redskins last season...

NFL Draft G$s and Duts

My in-laws were at the Mansion this weekend.  I barely helped my father-in-law paint a room in the house because I'm lazy and awesome.  I found out that it is my mother-in-law who keeps Rizzoli & Isles on the air.  But most importantly, THEY realized that turning off the NFL Draft is a topic that should not be addressed.  They showed up on Friday night and were forced...
