  1. 2018 Draft Day Thread

    Big uglies win championships. Needed to shore up the run D. We now have a decent interior rotation with Allen, Payne and Ionnaidas. We’re one guy short of making it a stellar rotation. If Taylor pans out we’ll be MUCH improved against the run. Need ILB help and a RB still and I’ll feel much better about our run O/D.
  2. @Monk4thaHALL That makes sense. And it would get old. But signing the guy for a year or two and seeing where he is mentally is a bet I’d be willing to make if we can get him for a fair price tag. Especially because you know against Dallas he’ll go absolutely berserk. The key is money and fit. The rest I’ll deal with... personally, anyways. We’ve signed choir boys and the team has been middling. Let’s add some swagger, put some umph back in our biggest rivalry, and take a chance on a guy who seems hungry... If the money is right haha
  3. It baffles me that we as a fan base would opt to not sign a guy that could be a help... just because. i don’t buy that he’s not a top flight receiver anymore. Dak was extremely lackluster last year. Just looked horrendous. Smith is a better quarterback. Dez can play. I guarantee it. The key with signing Dez would entirely rest on: fit with Gruden and Smith’s opinions (yes the QB matters), cost, his demeanor. I ultimately don’t believe this comes down to Hankins OR Dez. I think the team has already allowed the Hankins ship to sail unless his price comes down. DL is a much larger concern. Agreed. But Dez gives us a VERY legit receiving corps. And I’m not sold on ours at all. Im not necessarily FOR signing Dez. I just see the value in it if all things are considered. Not signing him won’t break my heart, either, though.
  4. I don’t think this does anything to Doctson, actually. Gives the receivers more versatility. Remember, although depth charts exist, situational subs exist, too. There’s room for more good receivers on the team. Dez would actually help Doctson.
  5. Man... tough to swallow the idea but Dez completely upgrades the receiving Corp, gives a third or fourth red zone receiving threat and gives Alex Smith a damn good weapon. Richardson and Dez with Crowder could be deadly. Hes a big time upgrade. Of course it depends on money in the end. But I wouldn’t write this off.
  6. Five Figures

    You just made me realize I’ve been posting here for 15 years.
  7. Hogan is a decent QB with a positive upside but needs some time to excel. Struggled to play much in Cleveland but part of that was their HC. I dont mind him as a developmental guy... not sure I’m sold on him as a number 2. And when trading a sixth that likely means he’s replacing McCoy.
  8. ***2017-18 NBA Playoffs Thread***

    Well, now that Kyrie is done for the season things aren’t looking great for the Celtics. awesome. persevered through Hayward only to lose Kyrie.
  9. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I haven’t followed all of this very closely. Why was Scot being in Skins garb in Whole Foods a bad thing?
  10. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    All of this makes my head hurt. Its a simple fix. And one that isn’t going to happen. Purge the drama. Purge the entire FO. Start over. Yes, even the guys who have been excellent. Those guys WILL find jobs in other front offices. And they will likely be better valued and in better situations than the current. After this season, if we are t successful, the entire FO needs to be purged and rebuilt. The following season the coaching staff and player personnel overhauls need to begin. The coaching staff should be a two year process, players a three year process. Get a FO, coaching staff and player personnel group together that can be used for continuity. Its simply not going to happen but it IS an easy fix. None of the quality guys in the org will be without a job for very long.
  11. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    So the same as the last three seasons.
  12. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Losing Kirk hurt but his contract would have hurt this team more. There’s no debate the situation was boggled from jump street. But the FO responded well to a mistake and didn’t cost the team 28M in cap room this year by signing him. Smith is a good football player and capable of running Gruden’s offense very similarly to Kirk, except his legs will help him out of some tough spots. Gonna be fun to see how he does.
  13. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Honestly, given my observations in the press box, I think Santos has a pretty big voice/role. Obviously I cant pinpoint details. But he always seems to be in the middle of conversations. I’ve seen him talk to Bruce, Scot (In the previous season obviously) and Doug Williams. And they were discussing “business”. I dont have more details because I’m a guest there and didn’t want to eavesdrop. But it involves replacement backers after our injury rash. Who they talked about I have no idea. But Santos seems pretty important to the machine.
  14. Before you get too far on your high horse and before you continue going to the place that you’re trying to go... A lot of people on this forum didn’t love the money Kirk wanted, wanted nothing to do with Murphy. And mostly everyone wanted Brown brought back. Youre trying to go to a ridiculous place. Please don’t go there.
  15. Our pass rush should be okay, maybe not as good as last year, but okay even without Galette. The sticking point is our run D. It’s been horrendous. If the team wants to win it has to be better at run defense. Losing Galette hurts our rush. Depending on the next moves, if it improves our run defense, we upgraded our team. But the jury will be out until we see if the rush D improves. Also keep in mind, Junior may not be done in DC yet. Sometimes pulling a deal is a negotiation tactic.
  16. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Keep in mind the league is cyclical. At some point everyone is going to go small. And then the large massive OL and strong running game will be extremely difficult to stop. But you cant totally go that route and sacrifice a passing game either with the league where it’s at currently.
  17. I agree that he’s among the best with Champ and Springs. What he does for the team is tremendously undervalued. After the rib injury he clearly played worse, but up until that point he had been pretty tough to beat and was causing strip fumbles left and right. for cap reasons, especially prior to losing Fuller and Bree, I was okay with trading or releasing him because of the strength of the CB unit and his cost. I still think we need a plan to move away from Norman if the team thinks his contract will be prohibitive moving forward. But his contribution should be much more widely appreciated.
  18. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    This is funny and true and the same time. Dude went for the biggest guarantee, but not the maximum money. Still, he took the most immediate money on the table and the shorter deal so he can get more max money. i don’t dislike him for that, by the way. Or at all, really. I wish he’d move on and stop going RG3 on ya. But other than that, he made a sound business decision for him and his family. Good QB that made a business decision. No issues there. just some of the narratives are driving me nuts. “Bad supporting cast for three seasons and he still threw for 4K” and “he didn’t even take the most money” are the two that are scraping my shins the most
  19. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Unless I totally missed it, that reply wasn’t in regards to that post. Sooooo not sure why you brought it up. its not objective fact that he’s smug. That’s subjective opinion. Cousins having better weapons at receiver in 15 and 16 is objective fact. Smith having a better team in those years is also objective fact.
  20. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    @Wyvern surprised to see what from me? Objective truth? No. I don’t believe the Skins running game was better. I do believe the Skins OL and receiving weapons were better in 15 and 16. And I won’t blink saying that. Gruden’s system has been typically designed like the Reid offense in the sense that the pass sets up the run. Difference is Gruden schemes more downfield attacks. Gruden’s system is literally set up to amass a 4000 yard passer every season. @thesubmittedone that’s an exact point I brought up in another thread and almost word for word I said, “if you’re talking offensive weapons, Kirk has has had a much better group aside from 2017. If you’re including D and ST, I’d agree, Smith has had a better team around him. @Taylor 36 because he did. In 2015 Reed had 87 receptions, 952 yards and 11TD in 14 games. Jackson played in 10, over 500 yards and 4 TD. Garcon played in 16, 72 rec, 777 yards, 6 TD Crowder played in 16, 59 rec 604 yards 2 TD. Thats a bit better than you’re giving credit for, no? 2016: Jackson and Garçon had over 1000 each. Davis and Reed combined for 1100 yards. Crowder had 847 and Thompson nearly had 400. Reed started 8 and played in 12. Jackson missed one game. Am I missing something?
  21. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Why do people keep saying Kirk had less weapons/help than Smith over the last three years? It’s driving me nuts. In 2017 that’s true. It’s not in 15 or 16.
  22. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Not sure what you mean. I mean the continued focus from the players and their Dads about the Redskins, whether names or not. Just smug and arrogant. You’re on a new team. No need to drag the Redskins through the dirt. Looks like Kirk and Griffin were more similar than I thought in that vein. I mean, there was no mention of, “yeah, he wanted a great organization and a great contract and we got it!” I said it at the end of the season when I saw Kirk throw his helmet on the sideline and then after making a good play, he was sighing a deeeeep sigh of relief. It was all about the money first and foremost. Theyre pushing an agenda now and it’s old.
  23. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Cousins has sour grapes against the Skins. That’s not to say there’s no merit to his Dad’s words. But for some reason, Cousins departure reminds me so much of Robert Griffin III’s departure. Really bitter and disingenuous and, quite honestly, a bit smug.
  24. I actually agree here. Not a fan of Scandrick. A street FA signing could be of similar use. But I’m hoping to be wrong on this one.
  25. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Except that’s a huge cap hit. Norman is the best player on the defense. And if the Skins were interested in getting Breeland back, I’d have agreed to move Norman if anyone would have done it. But with Breeland gone, you cannot value a slot corner over a starting corner. It’s a very big mistake in my opinion. Skills Norman vs. Fuller = Norman better Position Norman vs. Fuller = Norman (outside CB) Age = Fuller Contract = Fuller (but that could change after rookie deal)
