If we beat the Redskins Mitt Romney will win the presidency if we lose 4 more years of Obama.




How Robert Griffin III or Cam Newton will decide the presidential election


Forget polls and expert analysis. The winner of the 2012 presidential election could come down to how well Robert Griffin III or Cam Newton plays on the first Sunday of November.

For years, pollsters have used the scientific sampling of audiences to forecast the presidential election’s outcome. And sometimes they are right.
But in other cases, like the 2000 election and that whole Harry Truman incident in 1948, the pollsters–and a few TV networks–can get it wrong.
So if you are looking for some additional signs about who will be the next president, here are six nontraditional indicators to gauge the winner of the Obama-Romney race.
The Redskins Factor
The Redskins rule is known inside the Beltway and has held true in 17 of 18 cases, in the electoral vote.
Quite simply, if the Washington Redskins win their last home game before the election, the incumbent party will win the presidential election.
And this year, the match-up features the two hottest young quarterbacks in the NFL: Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton.
This year, the Redskins take on the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, November 4. Expect President Obama to be cheering for the Redskins and Mitt Romney should be sporting a Panthers’ jersey.
Only the Kerry-Bush election of 2004 broke the precedent, and some proponents of the rule don’t accept that as a true defeat, because of the Bush-Gore election controversy of 2000.
Cable TV news ratings
Do the national numbers for people who watch cable TV news shout fests really reveal who is winning the election?
Teachers Corner

Hey, here is a list of questions:
  • What effect do campaign ads have on elections?
  • What qualities do kids think are important for the President to have?
  • An on-line tool from NPR enables you and your class to predict the 2012 Presidential election.
Former CNN president Reese Schonfeld, in a story on the Huffington Post, crunches the numbers for Fox, CNN, HLN (the former Headline News), and MSNBC.
Schonfeld says Fox has a slight edge: over CNN, HLN and MSNBC combined! That puts the general election, in terms of the popular vote, in a virtual tie.
Schonfeld also says that Fox lags three other networks, when combined, by 50 percent when it comes to viewers under 54 years of age. He believes it is further evidence that President Obama needs to reach older voters to be successful.

God I can't wait until November 18th and we get these guys back at our place. My friend (bucs fan) hasn't stopped running his mouth yet about this damn game.

I think Cam will have one of his best games of the year come week 11..

It's amazing how people are just waiting in the shadows for Cam to do something wrong, play a bad game, fart in a public place, etc. For a kid that has done evrything right since hitting the national stage at Auburn, the vitriol towards Cam is astounding. I just don't get it. Then on the other hand you have Robert Griffin getting the white glove treatment. fuging sad man. I hope Cam shoves all this down everybodies throat and at the end of his career he can say a big "fug you!" to the people that continue to bash him.

I waited all last year for someone to piss Cam off and it never happened. He had a great year but he spent too much of it exchanging pleasantries and chewing gum.
I want this War-Horse PISSED the fug off!
Please, stop being so politically correct Cam. It's OK to go full PISSED!
The only moment I got out of my chair Sunday is when the Bucs tranny got on Cam's legs and he jumped up and yelled GTFOOMe!

I was yelling, GTFO of him!

Fight or flight. I think this week will be different.

But then again, I drink daily...........heavily.

I wish one of you would contact SCP for me.

What was I talking about?


Good night New York!!!!!!!!!!

If Cam got pissed & was able to control the emotion I'm sure the team would feed off of that and get pumped too. Hope something like that happens this Sunday against the Saints***.

I think you guys have a different perception of the way the media treats Cam than the rest of the world. The national media has portrayed Cam as one of the darlings of the NFL, one of the up-and-coming superstars, and rightfully so.

I think we are going to absolutely destroy the Bucs next time we play. Cam didn't even have a bad game. If people actually watched they would realize that.

Maybe the Panthers destroy the Bucs the next time they play, but the Panthers would have to play a whole lot better and the Bucs would have to play a whole lot worse.

Cam had a pretty bad game, not a terrible game, but not a good game. He was definitely flustered by the constant pressure and the defensive looks they probably hadn't game planned for. I don't expect him to struggle against the Bucs the next time, with multiple games' worth of film to study, but I do expect the Bucs to still play fast, disciplined, attacking defense.
