    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Texans

    No issues with Hopkins on the kick. The dude has been very reliable this year, and is playing hurt. Like @KDawg said, with better clock mgmt (which has been an issue for this coach), we could've run a few extra plays (even ONE might have been enough) to move the ball close enough so that kick sails through.

    Absolutely agree with you on this. We could have -- and should have -- run a play instead of spiking it.

    2018 Season Injury News

    Any word on Guice's rehab and how that's been going? No setbacks or complications? Hate that the kid had such a season-ending injury in his rookie campaign.

    Well, Hue is back with the Bengals. One thing's for sure -- the coaching fraternity takes care of its own.

    The Raiders are bad. Very bad. And the coaching is not good, either. It's easy to swoop in and take over a team that's on the verge. Gruden did it with Tony's team in Tampa and thought he was gonna do the same with Jack's team in Oakland. Not happening in Oakland. Also easier to draw up and explain Xs and Os from a TV studio than to make 'em work on the field against guys who've been actively coaching for the past decade.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Bucs

    I read you loud & clear @KDawg. I'm a fan, not a coach, so I'm not going to harp too much on some of the "could've been better" stuff from the offense yesterday. We won, and that's an outcome I'll day every day of the week, whether we score 16 points or 6. We do have to temper our enthusiasm a bit, because we won't be facing a Koetter-coached team (or that Bucs D) every week. A tough 2-game stretch coming up, with trying to contain Watt on D and that Houston offense, then heading to that Thanksgiving game on the road against that team from the same state as Houston. I think we'll need to put up some points next week, and I'm with you on the thoughts about Reed. It's Jekyll and Hyde. Some games, I swear he's half-assing it out there, and wonder if he's hurt or something.
  7. I'll be happy when that putrid stadium property becomes some kind of business park, outlet mall or other complex and the team moves back to DC where it belongs. Can't go back in time, but I've been to RFK and I've been to Fed Ex. No comparison in terms of the fan experience or the ratio of Skins fans to opposing team fans. Part of it has to do with the terrible teams/coaches/mgmt we've had (each a function of the other elements).......but Norman is not saying something here that I haven't heard a lot of fans say, and that hasn't been said on this forum many, many times by frustrated fans who get sick and tired of going to a home game and seeing other fans, especially those damn Eagles, coloring our stadium with their jerseys. And a lot of the players feel the exact same way. But after a victory, don't ask the man that question. And to Norman, don't answer the question that way after a victory. And just to put a little perspective on it: Reporters have a narrative whenever they interview somebody. They already know what they want to write or broadcast, and they're just looking for you to support that narrative. Just can't fall for the bait.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    The Falcons were embarrassed in Cleveland and will probably bounce back next week against that team from north of Mexico, south of Oklahoma; the Eagles are not gonna stop the Saints in New Orleans. We can extend the NFC East lead next week against the Texans. We need some quick-hitting stuff against that Texans defense. Slant them to death with Reed and Grandpa Davis until they stop it. Can't give Watt time to develop more highlight reel material. He'll eat Moses alive.
  9. Mods, can we merge the "Let's Get Behind" and "What's Wrong with" Alex Smith threads into a single "The Conundrum of Alex Smith"? Edit: and the "When Can We Get Out of the Alex Smith Contract" thread

    As the Greek philosopher Jerry Glanville once said, the NFL stands for Not Cheeya For Long. Mr. Koetter, step into the Principal's office. Should've never been a HC to begin with.

    This Rams offense is fun to watch. It seems effortless for them to move down the field. And it's a real testament to good coaching because Boy Wonder came in and changed the entire attitude and approach of that team, not just the offense.

    Also shows how stupid Koetter is. Should've been fired last year. If there's one HC in the league i want to see canned, it's part for how he actively undermined Lovie to get Lovie shipped outta Tampa.

    Deeeeefense! When you hold this Bucs offense to this many points and force that many turnovers, you've done your job. Nice one fellas!

    That was one of the WORST holding calls I've ever seen. I realize that officials usually see (and call) the effect, not the cause.......but there's no way you make that call against Moses. He saw the Bucs defender's body turned and dropped and automatically assumed 'hold'. If you didn't see it, you don't call it. Terrible.
