  1. Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

    I was able to get conscessions from them last year.
  2. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Very informative,great post! Going forward with Reed,he just can’t afford any more concussions.Who knows,not really a fan of the new tackling rule but maybe it will help prolong his career and others like him.If this team can get even 12 games out of him this season it is a huge difference maker.

    I don’t believe Quick is practice squad eligible. If you were thinking of Quinn I think there’s a chance he could possibly get scooped up by another team.
  4. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Really, 29 seems a bit low to me.Smith had a bit of success before he came to A.Reid’s system.Gruden’s Offense is similar in ways to Reid’s and has been fairly successful in it’s on right.Alex should be able to pick up this offense fairly easy.The Skins have one of the better back ups in league in Colt. Smith is surrounded by some decent weapons.

    They will negotiate the price of Sunday Ticket with you,or at least they have been willing to do so for several years. When I saw that they automatically renewed mine I called and cancelled the package. I usually call and barter with them before the season begins and have it reinstated at a discount. I have gotten substantial reductions handling it in this manner.
  6. Sounds to me that it will place defenders in a very tough situation. Will it be called when a ball carrier lowers their head? How often will it be called on the offense?
  7. Guice Post!!! Can’t wait to see him in action. Hopefully,he has a successful 10 year career with the Redskins.
  8. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I would say there is a pretty good chance that Crowder has a better year this year than last. I think he is in a contact year and if he can stay healthy he could have the season he was expected to have last year. What could be an even larger factor in the success of the passing game is the fact that Smith has a history of not turning the ball over anywhere near the rate that Cousins did last season. He’s obviously better at making things happen when the play breaks down. Those two factors should allow the receivers to make plays.
  9. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    The way you make these receivers sound Michael Bolton could probably start.(JK) Anyway, I don’t care if the receivers are terrible and they hand the ball off to Guice 40 times a game as long as they have a winning season.I am pretty sure we can agree on that.
  10. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Dez is the last thing this team needs. His production seems to be declining every year anyway.You’re talking about three guys that have been in the league A total 10 years between them when you mention Crowder,Richardson,and Doctson.One or all 3 of them may turn out to be above average players. There is a very good chance that oneof them turns out to be a star. There is also a chance that Davis or Harris turn out better than you expect. We haven’t even talked about T Quinn yet.I believe you are wrong in your assessment. Time will tell.
  11. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I wouldn’t say Doctson has done nothing,the guy has only played one full season in the NFL,and it was a decent year for him. He had a little over 500 yards and 6 Tds.The catch he made against Seattle was maybe the biggest play of the season for the Redskins. There is no reason to believe he won’t improve this season with Smith throwing him the ball. Crowder had 83 more yards total for the year than Richardson and they both scored six touchdowns. Doctson,Crowder,and Richardson are all 3 young and should only get better. There is plenty of depth at the position as well. I am of the opinion that the Skins have more than enough at the receiver position in this scheme and with this QB to be successful.If the injury bug stays away I think this will be a potent offense.
  12. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Don’t think there’s any need to inspire fear to have an average to better than average receiving group.This group is capable of being effective. Time will tell.
  13. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I know this thread is about the receiving corps but I am expecting pretty big things overall from the passing game.Hopefully, Guice and Thompson add some good numbers,as well as the TEs. As someone stated above with Gruden’s schemes and Smith’s mobility there is potential for a very good aerial game.
  14. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I think this group will surprise some people. Should be quite a bit better than the group that suited up last year.By the way, I am pretty sure Richardson’s numbers last year were comparable or better than Crowder’s. Richardsons 4-4 speed can’t hurt either.
  15. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    The last 3 on the the tier 2 list to me are questionable. Garaffalo and Watson probably have only 15 NFL starts between them,I believe it’s to early to say.Watson does look like he will become that player though.Not really sure about Carr,he can be erratic at times.Even Newton can be great but every now and then there is a clunker of a game,but he probably belongs there.
