    Three little Birds thread, It's gonna be aight. Good ju-ju thread

    89% of the betting public are taking the Packers giving up the points to the Skins on the road. That’s a good thing for the Redskins.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Yeah... that was me. And i stand by those comments. No tapering off here. However, i know I've never called you a "hater", or anything close to it - but maybe that particular comment was meant for someone else. Go Redskins! Good luck tomorrow all.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    The short answer is yes and no.... This applies to moderate middle most as the extreme positions will not be swayed either way. Before a good answer can be given, it depends on what you call success. Another 8-8, 7-9 season is not success in my mind - although that may be this teams ceiling through no fault of Alex. So let's define success. For me success is 10+ wins. With that in mind (yes = it will matter, no = it will not matter): You di not ask this part, but it needs to be addressed, anything less than 9 wins is a negative on the FO. But I think you will see most blaming the FO not Alex. At least that's where I will be. Alex is who he is. Most of us knew what was coming. A more conservative version of Kirk. Less mistakes but also less heroics. But it's not his fault the FO brought him here and may be expecting something different. He is who he is by now. And that's a decent QB who will not typically lose games for you but will also not often win games either. Dan - No, even a SB will not change my mind that he is a POS. I can however separate the football side and will obviously have to give him credit for finally after 20 years putting a winning combination together. But just a little. Even a blind dog finds a bone sometimes. Bruce - Yes, sort of. Not happy with how he handled Kirk and his spend thrift approach to Free Agents is too focused on money and not enough on player quality as he is just not a good evaluate of players. When someone like that has the final say you end making poor personnel decisions - like having your oft injured starting LG be a guy that sat in Free Agency long enough you could sign him for basically league minimum. But hey, if it produces a winner, I will have to give him credit. Having said that, nothing will change many peoples mind on how Bruce coughed up a fur ball dealing with Kirk. It's not just about keeping Kirk or not, Once they decided to move on they did so the only way possible that they got zero compensation for a legitimate starting NFL QB in his prime. FO Structure - No - This is the real issue most of us have here. If there was a true GM with a real football personnel evaluation background then many would feel better about the chances of this working. The question for Dan is, there are many examples that show the best recipe for success in the NFL and his method has shown almost no results, why keep doing it?? So if they have success, you have to give them some credit. But it's also fair that after almost 20 yrs to have the feeling that they more got lucky than found a true structure for success. Having said that, if it's the start of a string of successful seasons then that mindset may change. But not after a single season. Alex vs. Kirk - Yes - Have to give them credit for getting Alex if it works out. It's more than luck. They clearly targeted the best QB in free agency not named Kirk Cousins and landed him. For many of us, the trade in a vacuum is not a problem - outside of not getting anything for Kirk. Alex is a capable QB. You get a safer but not quite as dynamic QB. For me, I do not think it's a big drop off between the two. Kirk does sling a bit more at the end but that often ends in a painful interception. I believe Alex shows a bit more confidence than Kirk, especially on broken plays. But it's only two games and has yielded only one win in those two games. There is a lot of football left. In the end, the answer to your question is probably winning cures everything, at least to some extent. So maybe for some it will vindicate the FO or change people minds more than others. However, what you are seeing being relatively new to the board, last weeks loss is just so representative of the Redskins of the last 20 yrs, many of us are just really tired of seeing the same movie over and over again. A rebound win over the Packers could revive some hope. Let's hope they have a great game. Two weeks of agonizing over a 1-2 start after a great first game would be painful. Although, to be honest, a loss would give me reason to do something else on Sundays and just look for a score. Something I started last year after close to 50 yrs of watching almost every minute of every game live.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    What must Alex do for you say he’s a “winner” this season— 9-7, 8-7-1, or 7-9? Comparing Alex against GB and Kirk in 2016 is flawed. Not saying you’re drawing a conclusion or anything from it, but it’s not relevant in my eyes.

    We're Extremeskins, not ExtremeGuns&Ammo. The Classified section is for Redskins related items. The main one being tickets. Along with autographs, memorabilia, the occasion player autograph signing promotion. That kinda stuff. You don't see anyone in there with used TVs, furniture, houses, lawn mowers, '78 Pintos, or @Jumbo 's knife collection. For that, & you, there's most likely a Facebook page you can put it on, or Craig's List/e-bay/etc.

    Some Hard Truths

    The thing that sucks about all of this is that no coach is going to want to come here because they’d be stuck with mediocre-ass Alex Smith for the next 2 seasons. Had we had Josh Allen or Rosen it would have been a selling point; a young talented QB to work with. But it’s likely nobody is going to want to work with Alex Smith because of how limited he is.

  18. Of course, there were THREE QBs selected in the first round of that draft. And we paid a heavy price for the two that ended up playing for us. We could have had the third, of course....

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Colts

    I want to focus on a few plays from the game because I think there is some overreaction to the WRs last game. I've said before that our main problem was that we couldn't convert third downs last game. But looking at the tape again, I'll add that there were a lot of "almost" plays. - there was a nice deep ball to Doctson that was dropped on the second drive - on the drive with the DJ int, there were two almost plays before that - one was an almost int by Dunbar - the other was an almost S by Norman. - the INT we got came after a big play by Hilton so a big change in field position - On the drive with our first FG, Doctson was WIDE OPEN in the middle but the ball was batted down at the line. That coulda been a TD. - In the red zone we had a TD pass to Doctson that was well defended but it was in his hands. - There were two more plays, that I think were incomplete passes by Luck, but one time was an almost sack by P. Smith, and the other was an almsot sack by Kerrigan. (the Kerrigan one was on the drive after we scored the third FG, first play).
  20. This is going to be very bad for republicans.

    https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Homeless-Football-Player-Finds-Residency-at--493748891.html DC Athlete Kicked Off Team Due to Homelessness Is Offered a Home A homeless high school football player who was kicked off of his school's team because he did not have a permanent address has been offered a home, and school officials say he'll be put back on the team. Jamal Speaks, an 18-year-old running back for the Ballou High School Knights, is being recruited by Temple University. But he recently was kicked off the D.C. high school's team, as News4 reported. D.C. Public Schools officials said the District of Columbia State Athletic Association determined that Speaks was eligible to play, but they said the District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCSAA) ruled that he was ineligible because they could not verify his address. A local shelter for homeless youth, Covenant House Greater Washington, heard Speaks' story and offered him a home, they announced Wednesday. "After hearing that Jamal was experiencing homelessness and at-risk of losing the ability to pursue his dream of attending college and playing football, I knew that CHGW had to help," the organization's CEO, Dr. Madye Henson, said in a statement. D.C. Public Schools said Wednesday that Speaks can now practice and play with his team. "With the best interest of the student and the entire Ballou Knights football team in mind, we are working with DCSAA to resolve this matter as quickly as possible," the district said in a statement. Speaks told News4 he's homeless and sleeps on friends' couches. He said his father is deceased and he doesn't have a relationship with his mother. Ward 8 Council Member Trayon White and local sports reporter Monet Anderson helped advocate for him.
  23. Yep. I hope he gives a good chase though.
  24. Tech is playing there because both schools agreed to a long home and home series after ODU made the transition from FCS to FBS back in 2013-2014, I believe 2 more games at Blacksburg than Norfolk, through 2031. The 757 is a breeding ground for talent and Beamer thought it would be good for recruiting to play in Norfolk. He couldn't he foreseen that the product VT brought to Norfolk would be as MTGTM puts it as "crap". Also, there is quite a large Tech alumni/fan base in the 757, as the crowd was probably made up of 35-40% Tech fans, so I would assume Tech are playing at ODU for the benefit of the fans in Hampton Roads. The stadium is mostly original from the 1930's and will be getting a much needed facelift this upcoming offseason, but I have a feeling you wouldn't be as made playing in our "crap teams high school stadium" if Tech hadn't gotten rain over by our offense constantly throughout the game and on every series in the 4th quarter when we put up 28 points on Bud Foster's vaunted defense. I'm guessing someone on the defense forgot to bring the magical lunch pail on the cross commonwealth bus trip?
