The 12-4 section is a few rows back from the 19-0 section.
The "facilities" are over the side. Feel free to use the blue star as an aim point.

Works for me - CLL was letting anybody jump on. :lol: :twisted: :lol:

I'm still riding, sitting next to FFA - I just hope that LPJ has that GPS thing working this year :wink:
seems like our routes were a little off track the past few years

I think I see RiC with one foot on the bus and .... :lol:

I do like what MS had to say in those quotes, but this team is not at the 10-12 win point with their current QB situation. To be a playoff team, you need to have an at least above avg QB or a mediocre QB with a elite defense. We don't have either.

With the way MS is doing things, it will take more than one year to turn around a team that has been in a downward spiral for quite some time.

In all honesty, this is the first offseason since I can remember that I was happy with. It is a step in the right direction, but I don't see any miracle happening this year (and by miracles I mean Grossman or Beck becoming above-avg or elite QBs).
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Right Mark, I agree man.

Good off-season moves that were't about "names" but more about needs. This is what we've been screaming all these years and now we're getting there. Of course it'll take some time to develop all these young guys but that seems to be the way of the better teams. I'm all for it and very excited for the season to get underway.

SJ.. the prob wit the GPS was that we had too much interference last year.. mcnugget and fatboy.. looks like we're in the clear now bro, lets hope we don't run over potholes. :lol:

I'll agree that I'm expecting 8 and possibly 9 wins

I am really just looking to see more progress towards a consistently competitive product on the field each and every week

I think that these guys are getting there

a 10 or 12 win season is possible with just a group of players on offense and defense, ALL playing together - you don't need anything special from your defense or your QB
The Giants won a Super Bowl with a bunch of guys playing together and then look what happened when the same players stopped playing as a team on both offense and defense
plus they have a stupid coach and QB :lol:



I don't want 1 Super Bowl - I want to be in the playoffs, EACH & EVERY YEAR

BESIDES - with LPJ driving the bus - this is going to be a smooth ride to glory

SUPER BOWL BOUND - BABY :lol:

give him a bit of a break Kaz - he's just taken over and there's a lot of issues to handle

PLUS .... we are planning on taking off the training wheels soon :shock:

CLL messed up the handling 2 years ago when he entered it in that drifting contest at the beginning of the season... hasn't been right since he flattened the taco cart next to the tomahawk concession stand.

Plus, he plans his route a little too close to Baltimore for my tastes. :twisted:

My location hasn't changed in years, and neither have my neighbors. In my corner of the bus we all seem to know each other pretty well by now. You guys know who you are. :)

I sold my seat on the bandwagon in the offseason, since I thought the lockout would render it worthless. I got new tickets at a premium, but, isn't a Super Bowl run worth it? I blieve it is!!

The purple steering wheel cover was a bit disturbing... I was glad when it caught fire.

Has anyone got a Captain Chaos bobblehead for the dashboard? It will bring good luck. Also sounds like we need a AAA card in the glovebox.

Don't worry guys, I got my driver's license from Tick Tock from a guy named Jose. He taught me well.. but I never seen him since the last time PG Cops came and he suddenly ran... *eh*... all good.
