  1. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    Ah, I assumed it was the traditional method. Just read his reasoning and the data he uses-- interesting and he's at least not being lazy about it. I do think our schedule is fairly tough because we play two divisions (both south divisions) that on paper look pretty solid. But will the Jags and Titans maintain? I do think Indy will be better with Luck returning and we will likely be facing a much more dangerous of GB than the league saw last year after Rodgers got hurt. But who knows, games like at NOLA may wind up looking a lot softer this year than they were last.

    This means very little to me; things change year to year in the NFL. It assumes all teams remain identical to their performance the year before. Won't happen. Someone we play will be way worse than they were last year and probably vice versa-- perhaps multiple times over.
  3. Per Schefter: DeAngelo Hall Retiring

    Agree with this...Ring of Honor is a different criteria than HOF.... ROH has as much to do with the connection and impact within the organization. Doug Williams does NOT deserve to be in the Ring on Honor on overall merit. He literally played like 6 good games with the Redskins total. It just so happens that one of them was a Super Bowl and he due to the social/racial implications was also just a huge story with a lasting impact. That sort of made him a "Redskin for Life." Rypien was also a guy who only really had one good year-- but what a year it was. So for me Ring of Honor inclusion for an individual team is more abstract.
  4. Per Schefter: DeAngelo Hall Retiring

    Strongly disagree... Hall is better than a number of guys already in that ring. I think he is basically equivalent to Santana. Moss was the beneficiary of being on the team during a slightly better run so he was able to make more lasting plays in the memory of fans (and of course, he was also a WR which creates more "highlight" plays). I consider them both to be top notch Redskins at the very top of the list of the best players to play here since the Gibbs I era. I also think Hall was a better player than someone like Ken Harvey.
  5. Per Schefter: DeAngelo Hall Retiring

    Most underrated/under-appreciated player of the ES era. I love DHall and I put him on same level as some of our greats from the glory days. He was a money player— very good in big games and at big moments— had a nose for the ball. And he was a gamer for sure. He didn’t have a career worthy of Canton, but I do believe he belongs in the Ring of Honor. Great Redskin.
  6. Only if there is some proof that Snyder explicitly ordered or condoned it. Mark Cuban had one of his top executives fired for harassment and Cuban himself has been recently accused of fondling a woman at a bar. It doesn’t appear as any of this will lead to him being removed as owner of the Mavs. It is highly unlikely this story “ends” Snyder unless some more very specific details emerge.
  7. I’ll just say this and people can take it how they want: this is nothing new. Not to our organization, the NFL, or ANY organization be it pro sports or otherwise. Yes, these specific allegations are new and pretty shocking to see in text. However, the general objectifying of women and/or towing or crossing the line of sexual harassment/abuse is not something specific to this regime of the Redskins or almost any regime anywhere. Go read any stories about the “glory days” of the 80’s. Go read about high powered people across the league and across all of society really. This cheerleader thing has been talked about for YEARS now— it’s just the first time it’s been linked to the Redskins specifically. If you think Snyder and others should be held accountable for this, then that is perfectly fine. But I’d say be prepared to be consistent with that— and I think some people would be STUNNED at the number of people that would fall in that case. In no way excusing any behavior simply because “lots of people do it,” but I do think it is important for people to realize how insanely widespread this stuff is and how many teams, organizations, corporations, etc are likely at least a little bit guilty for either condoning this type of stuff or at least being ingnorant that it was happening under their noses. Probably a decent chance it happens where you work right now.
  8. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    For me personally this stinks. Titans and Jags were two games I had my eye on for travel. No way I’ll book a Redskins trip that late in season though; and Dec 23rd won’t work anyway for family/holiday reasons. I also would love to go to AZ again but would much prefer that one be middle/later in year. The only road game that appeals to me and when I like to travel would be the game in Tampa— I might eye that one. Also might take a good look at the home game against Atlanta.
  9. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    Giants schedule leaked and it matches our leaked schedule. I think the full leak posted earlier is legit. Only question is start times and if any of them might be SNF.
  10. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    Previous leaks saying Panthers week 1
  11. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    That full leak schedule lines up with other leaks EXCEPT for week one.
  12. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    Leak: Redskins week 17 vs Eagles (not sure where)
  13. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    Leak: Redskins at Bucs, Sunday 11-11 at 1pm
  14. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    If true, it will be second year in a row I got the opener right 😁 However I am 95% sure that is a fake account and contradicts many things that have been reported.
  15. Redskins 2018 Schedule (Leaks)

    Leak: Bucs/Saints week one. So cross another one off the potential week one list.
