  1. ***2017-18 NBA Season Thread***

    I have to say... this team is loaded. Baynes is a nightmare inside. Brown, Tatum and Smart are making great plays. Horford is rebounding like a man and Kyrie is proving he was worth the trade. Regardless, I feel better about this team watching how gritty they are. Bring it on Eastern Conference. Gonna be VERY interesting.
  2. ***2017-18 NBA Season Thread***

    I’m completely deflated right now. 5 minutes in and the season is over. and for people saying the Wiz are the two seed now. Yeah. Maybe. But how about realizing the same could happen to you guys and not jinx yourselves?
  3. Redskins 49ers Post Game Assessments

    @Voice_of_Reason agreed on Grant being where he needs to be on the chart. I’m saying WE don’t appreciate him as much as we should. And I put Doctson and Reed in the same category. Not blaming them, necessarily. I don’t know who is to “blame”. Coaches? Cousins? Them? Injuries? No one? Just an observation from someone not in the room. @CTskin no edit for that bullet point. It stands as written. I put the clause in there and everything. ES doesn’t load in half of my computers and sometimes on my phone... it’s too much of a hassle to go back and renumber

    FYI I’m not knocking Reed. As I said, I think he’s the second or third best receiving TE in football. He hasn’t produced like it. Whether that’s on him or the coaching staff is a situation that I can’t judge because I’m not in the room. is it by design or intentional is the other question? Vernon Davis seems to be getting big targets regularly. Are we relying more on Vernon on splash plays? And if so, what does that mean? Worried about injuries? Could be anything. but he’s not producing the way Jordan Reed can. For whatever reason.

    Whered you disagree? Many expectations for a guy I consider the second or third best TE in all of Football are far more than what he’s produced.
  6. Redskins 49ers Post Game Assessments

    Observations:1- Player of the game was very likely Mr. Dunbar. Excellent, excellent game.2- Ryan Grant is still not explosive, but he comes through every time we need him. I think I say something about him every week and it's well earned every single week. Very underappreciated.3- Doctson flashes again, but then went missing again.4- Chris Thompson saw entirely too much action as the primary back for my liking yesterday. He's in on short yardage situation as the only back. I don't mind him there with split backs or as a wing or slot. But as the primary back, and then having him carry the ball? Doesn't make sense on many angles. It's putting mileage on his legs and frame and increasing fatigue which decreases his ability to hit the home run late in the game when the D is tiring. Later, in a short yardage situation, Perine was in there and he got stopped before the marker and he managed to keep his feet moving and picked up the first down. That's what we should be doing in those situations. Letting our power back be the power back. 5- The defense is a walking mash unit and they came out after 17-0 completely comatose. It was scary to watch. They had no bounce or excitement. It was like they thought the game was over. There are certain exceptions for certain players, but all in all I was disappointed in the defense yesterday as a whole.6- The Vernon Davis fumble was the second worst call in all of the games yesterday. The Austin Sefarian-Jenkins fumble call was not only worse, but it lapped it. Twice. Yikes.7- Speaking of Vernon... He continues to be the best receiving tight end on the roster so far this season. Waiting for Reed to show up.8- I have a problem with the timeout prior to the delay of game call on SF. Maybe we missed it and the timeout was called with 6-8 seconds left on the play clock and that's why it looked so strange... But if we called that late in the play clock I am mortified.9- The drive following the onsides kick had me livid. I understand the 'Skins wanted SF to use their timeouts, so they ran the ball. But there are high percentage ways to do that that are much more conducive to picking up a first down and ending the game right there. When there is that much time left on the clock, you need to gain a first down. How about a rollout pass with Cousins, where if there is nothing there he can tuck and go? If he throws to an open receiver and its dropped, it doesn't make the playcall poor, it makes the receiver poor. 10- Even though I stated above that we need to use Perine in short yardage, he clearly missed a few holes/called plays during the game. That is also quite scary. But let’s keep it in perspective... he’s a rookie that was on cruise control in the NCAA due to his size/strength/leverage. Patience is a virtue with him.11- I liked Swearinger getting that penalty in that little scuffle with Garcon. I'm usually not one for that kind of crap, but Garcon seemed to be running his mouth about hurting one of our guys, and DJ let him know he wasn't okay with that. That's the swagger this defense has been missing. An edge that can't be taught. I know it allowed them to score more points, but in that situation, with the D starting to falter, it's okay to show a little fire and grit and show that you've got your guys backs. I wish he didn't cost us that many yards and he only chirped, but you get that with a fiery guy like Swearinger. And I'd rather have him around than not have him around.12- You know who our offense misses? Pierre Garcon.
  7. Philly roll call in a few weeks for MNF

    I’ll be at this one...
  8. ***2017-18 NBA Season Thread***

    I’m starting to get amped up for the season. Anxious to see if Kyrie can be the superstar he thinks he is/wants to be. And I think Tatum is going to be for real.
  9. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    Sure. If he plays more than one game (note: I'm aware he's played more than one game, but we've needed a missing persons report for many of those). Not all his fault, but some of it is. Depends on what you listen to. If he's missing practice because he's soft, he has a lot of work to do to crack the list. If he was injured and legitimately couldn't practice, he has a lot of work to do to crack the list...
  10. The Official Washington Wizards Thread

    Washington makes me nervous as a Celtic fan. Just saying.
  11. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    Our receiving corps is worse than last year... For a comparison, here's where I'd rate them: 1. Garcon (2016) 2. Crowder/Jackson (2016) 3. Ryan Grant (2017) 4. Crowder (2017) 5. Pryor (2017)* *denotes a player who if he actually catches some of the dropped passes moves to #3 on the list in a millisecond with the opportunity to surpass Jackson/Crowder for #2. I don't believe he'll pass Garcon's 2016 value.
  12. The Skins RB situation....

    Maybe he does. But I see a guy who moves his body to avoid contact and fall forward using his momentum moreso than running through defenders via contact and keeping his legs churning. im not sure we’ve seen enough of Brown against starters to get a true opinion.
  13. The Skins RB situation....

    We don’t have a bell cow back. We have three niche backs. Kelley is the all around can do it all guy. He’s good at everything, great at a few things, exceptional in none. Kelley is a back we NEED on the team. But he’s not a bell cow. He’s a spell back and an insurance policy. Thompson is our home run hitter. Playmaker. But he can’t carry the load for four quarters. He’s break down. Again, he’s a back we need on the roster. Perine could be the thunder. Just needs to shake some rookie jitters. If he does, he’s a back with value. Interestingly enough, Brown has the bell cow back look to him, but he isn’t as good as Kelley in blocking and he doesn’t run as hard. He’s faster and has similar vision. But because he doesn’t really fit any role better than the other guys, Brown is more expendable. It’s hard to explain because he clearly has talent and could fit a niche. But he’s low man on the totem pole. The Skins need a bell cow. Period.
  14. Do We Suddenly Have a Dominant Defense?

    The defense revolves around Josh Norman. He locks down a portion of the field by himself. Teams don’t want to throw there because he’s good in coverage. Guys don’t want to run near him because he’ll force a fumble. He’s the key and centerpiece of the D. the addition of Brown and the DL stepping up has been integral to the solid defensive play, though. Sideline to sideline, Brown is the among the best in the NFL. and Kerrigan and Smith can get all the edge pressure they want. Without an interior rush breaking the pocket QBs can just step up in the pocket and pick us apart. Enter the 2017 DL. They are collapsing the pocket from the inside and making Kerrigan and Smith’s pressure more effective.
  15. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    People are still mad at Cravens for making a decision he thought was best for himself, huh? Here's my take: If he's going through something personal and questioning his love for the game? I feel for him and I wish him the best... But... The Skins don't need him if that's his attitude. Especially if he didn't want to be told how to be a NFL football player like he's entitled... See you later. Good luck with everything. No need for hate towards the kid. Wash our hands of him and move forward.
