Besides the headline ... but, still.
The Redskins have been dethroned!

2018 Offseason Champions! Does that mean we get the 5th Lombardi Trophy, the 2018 Mike Lombardi Trophy?
All good in theory

But even after all that DG and Company have accomplished this spring, I was listening to Rothenberg and Canty in the days after the draft and they were talking about Vegasí over/under for the NYG and how only one team in the NFC was worse than their 6.5 (Tampa).

There you go with your Vegas obsession again. You may want to lay low with that, it hasnít served you well in the past...

Not in the least. The poster needs to explain what my ďVegas obsessionĒ is and how exactly it hasnít ďserved me well in the pastĒ. All I did was mention something I happened to stumble into upon tuning into ESPN radio one day shortly after the draft.

The_Boss must have a very short memory  
BigBlueShock : 5/17/2018 9:26 am : link
Two years ago when Romo got injured The_Boss was adamant that the Eagles would easily run away with the division. When people dared to disagree he pointed to the latest Vegas odds as his proof that the Eagkes would win the division. There were many back and forths and every week, he would point again at the Vegas odds as clear cut evidence that the Eagles were the best team.

They finished 7-9 and didnít win the division. So much for Vegas...

So what? 2 years ago is an eternity in the NFL. And, not for nothing but it was Dave Rothenberg who brought up the over/unders on the air. I just posted what he and Canty spoke of. And, despite all the good work DG has done this spring, right now we are still perceived as a bottom feeder in the conference. Thatís what happens when youíre coming off 3-13. Your respect level as a team is a zero until proven otherwise.
Some over/under win totals from last year  
YAJ2112 : 5/17/2018 11:07 am : link
Giants 9 (3)
Eagles 8 (13)
Rams 5.5 (11)
Raiders 10 (6)
Tampa 8.5 (5)
Jags 6 (10)
Vikes 8.5 (13)

Vegas is good but they are sometimes way off.
Why link the follow up article from a fan page

It's all completely meaningless aside from gauging popular opinion on which teams will be good.

And popular opinion doesn't mean much.

That is the one I saw first I guess ... sorry.

I was a little buzzed last night also - did not realize I was making an internet "faux pas" (not sure if that is the correct spelling). Better form next time AR. ; )
