  1. Problem is that as an organization Skins have consistently missed on RBs in the draft and FA in recent years. Matt Jones - 3rd rd - bust Perrine - 4th rd -eh.. looks like a bust so far. Morris - undrafted and played well in a zone blocking scheme.. but again, cant catch, nothing special.. more scheme fit than anything else Kelley - 6th rd - average at best and cant seem to stay healthy Thompson - great 3rd down back but doesnt have the frame or inj history for a full time role The last good rb skins had was portis.. and he had to carry the team on his back and got run in to the ground.
  2. The Positive Thread

    Skins Oline is better then every other (3rd string) Oline in the nfl
  3. Bill Callahan and the Offensive Line

    To me its on Callahan first and foremost... replace him with a trash can and you will get the same result. 1. you have a top 5 LT in the game 2. You just payed your RT like a top 2-3 player in the game (is he worth it?) This team has not been able to run block for **** the last 3 years... please stop with this top 5 oline BS.. Skins were never a top 5 line.. Kirks quick release helped to make the Oline look better than it really is. Its mind boggling that in 3 yeras they cant figure out one of the simplest things in the game.. run blocking. And finally instead of getting better, they are getting worse as a unit. Now they cant pass block either. it seemed like Kirk was scrambling for his life on most pass plays.
  4. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    Can skins recoup the pic in any way if he does retire?
  5. They needed a Center with some experience to play in the 3rd and 4th preseason game.. highly doubt he makes the roster. at 290 he is also a bit small for power blocking scheme
  6. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    not sure if this has been posted but this guy does a good review of Pryor.. kind of gets you excited on what he can do in DC
  7. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    Ultimately most coaches try to get close to 50/50 run/ pass split for the most balanced offence. Injuries and game flow change the strategy. If the defense gets better and we have a marginally better running game, Skins wont need to play catchup as much so the O will most likely be more balanced to both keep the opponents O off the field and to run out the clock out while holding a lead. Gruden loved Gio and used him a lot in Cinci. Thompson is our Gio and I actually think his role will grow this year.
  8. it doesn't matter what the dynamics are.. it about bottom dollar. At the end of the day i believe most think that Raiders won on that deal with less then expected guarantees, which in turn is good for Skins in their efforts to sign Cousins since most believe Carr is better then Cousins.
  9. This could get interesting.... Cousins could make an argument for a higher salary since he ranked better then Carr in every category other then wins. This could get interesting....

  10. my point was that overpaying for average talent just to fill a need is an even worse idea. Every year there are quality players available later in the off season at a discount.. teams just need to be patient
  11. ... and this is why you're better off waiting until late in FA to bring in complimentary pieces at a discounted rate vs jumping in early and overpaying for a position: 2017 WR FAs avg per year T.Pryor - 6 A.Jeffrey 1y - 9.5 Garcon- 9.5 Jackson -11 Britt 8.1 marshall 5.5 patterson 4.2 smith 5 stills 8 woods 6.8 Maclin and Decker both available and will most likely fetch <5mil deals and are better then at least half the Wrs on the above list.
  12. Predictions for Doctson

    He wont necessarily face all the best corners as some only cover one side of the field. Skins can also move Pryor in to the slot for miss-matches. I am actually pretty excited to see how teams D up the skins with both Reed and Pryor on the field on 3rd downs. Either way.. Doctson and Crowder could stand to be the biggest beneficiaries of the Pryor signing.
  13. Welcome to the Redskins Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma

    remember that Thompson was also pretty injury prone his first two years in the league, and while talent was obvious he couldnt stay on the field. Today, Thompson is probably the best RB on the team, but cant be relied on to stay healthy. If Marshall can stay healthy long enough to stay on the field, I believe he might show to be a similar find to Thompson.
  14. ABC (Biloxi, WLOX): Junior Galette arrested

    Apparently his initial burst wasn't good enough to run away from the cops. He needs to work on his striding stamina. I am just happy he didn't tear anything while running from the cops.. getting closer to game shape!
