  1. I was just saying that out loud. This is a football player. He loves to play.
  2. I want Leonard Fournette. I think he is going to rush for over 1,000 if he stays healthy. Pick him Skins.
  3. When they desperately need O line help
  4. We have to take Allen or I will hate Bruce even more then I already do.
  5. No you are right. But today is the best day to trade him IMO. But what are you going to get who are you going to run with at QB. Personally I would sign Jay Cutler to a and deal Cousins for a high draft pick. And get that money back.
  6. I have never been all in on Kirk for a number of reasons but I do trust Scot's assessment of players. Most of all for me as a fan he seemed to be changing the culture of the team IMO. Taking it out of the gossiping, clown show it had become over the years to respectable. He had the trust of the players and I suspect Gruden as well, among others. One of the things that does not add up for me personally about the broadcast on the supposed conversation between Scot and the fan in the gas station was the part on how Dan pledged his trust in Scot when Scot wanted to share his draft board with him yet Dan was completely absent as the owner of the franchise when it it was clear that his investment was improving with Scot, by allowing Bruce out of jealousy, resentment, ultimately misguided emotions to fire Scot without any objection at all? That makes no sense to me. Seriously? I am not buying it. And if Cousin's deciding factor is based solely on receiving a windfall rather then any loyalty to the team and its fans, if that is in fact true, then you let him go next year, not this year. You have a bunch of guy's playing on 1 year deals, and an excellent QB class coming up next year. This is a year to assess who you want to keep, build the D up in this draft - players we will have for a few years and go from there.
  7. IMO SM knew exactly who the restricted and unrestricted free agents were going into 2017 soon after the 2016 season started. Definitely Scot's draft board is in play as well as good potential FA's. And that is probably why Jessica McCloughan is twittering away and Scot is sporting Skins gear. So I have great difficult being "impressed" with the front office because I think it is Scot's choices they are pursuing for the most part. Hey isn't he still touted as the magician personnel guy? So why wouldn't pursue his choices?
  8. What you wrote is a much better point. It is completely true.
  9. You know what I notice. Our stands filled with opposing team fans constantly over the least few years and it is an embarrassment. And how many people are selling their season tickets? I know a few. I can't say many though. I get what your saying and perhaps they are still gliding off their 90s reputation and a loyal fan base? I will definitely take your word on it and stand corrected. I am die hard myself BUT I have stop buying gear the last couple of years. But it makes me wonder how long Danny will have the luxury of being the "rich team". If it becomes less profitable because he can no longer sell pipe dreams I wonder what he will do?
  10. Michael Robinson, a "former" Seattle Seahawks player, a friend of SM's is talking. Would this supposed friend really go on a broadcast and share all this inflammatory information about Allen without McCloughan's okay? I don't think so. That is not much of a friend. And I have to say this - If I were an active player, even if I liked Scot I would not say a word. Anonymous or not. Anonymity has a way of becoming public knowledge in this day and age. You just can't take the risk. On the other hand If what Robinson is sharing is untrue, that he is in fact lying, it could easily be said that Bruce Allen or the Skin's organization owes itself to sue him and Scot McCloughan for defamation of character. I mean those are inflammatory accusations that could damage the Skins ability to attract a decent GM from coming to the Skins organization. I think the truth is coming out some day. And I get what your saying but I think the article is true because of how this dumb ass organization has been run for the past 20 odd years. We have been run so poorly. If any of us had a business we ran like this we would have been bankrupt by now. We would not be bailed out by the NFL and royalties. There has been so much gossip, utter bull****, piss poor decisions in terms of personnel year in and year out with this team and I was finally thinking the last two years we seemed respectable for the first time in a long time. And that was in part because of Scot. I thought wow Danny finally grew up. And you know what I think we all want the story to be untrue but it fits our history of an organization run by a fan boy who can't get out of his own way. And fan boy #2 Bruce Allen who either does his bidding or is as big of jackass at times who simply makes the situation even worse. I love the Redskins and I will never stop being a fan but it has been a gut wrenching experience with this team for way too long.
  11. http://www.newsadvance.com/sports/redskins/former-player-scot-mccloughan-felt-the-hate-from-redskins-president/article_3409820f-9e79-5acd-882c-97463136eaf3.html Honestly this article about the "hate" Bruce Allen has/had for Scot McCloughan is somewhat what I had been thinking since Scot's dismissal. I just do not think Bruce's "ego" can tolerate someone like Scot - a guy that does his own thing. And I do think Scot was a decent evaluator of talent. I just think the GM they say they are going to hire will have to be a "yes" man. There has just been so much dissension and **** in this organization for so long until, well the past two years. I think Scot was bringing respectability back to a dumpster fire. And while I did not agree with every decision he made he was infusing the franchise with some respectability.
  12. Reed has shown a history of getting concussions and missing games, pretty much every year, so i actually like the Round 4 pick but I do not think he will be there in Rd. 4. I agree we are a bit slow. But the D issues start up front. Some of the DB's in the league look good because their D Line's are very good. We desperately need a couple of big guy's upfront that have demonstrated an ability to stop the run and get after the QB.
  13. We were like human turnstiles last year on the DL. With the present talent in our division at RB and likely acquisitions coming we sure as hell better pick up some guys that can come off blocks and tackle the RB's or it is going to be another very agitating season when the D hits the field. It's a deep D class. The ugh part is seeing what Dannie and Bruce do......
  14. Ok this is a reach. He digressed in the RZ last year. Point in fact he went to Reed LESS in 2016 then he did in 2015. And it defies logic because he proved himself to be a reliable target. Reed has shown an ability to get open in the EZ in both 2015-2016. And too often we had receivers waving their hands, looking for the ball in 2016 because they were wide open. Look even analysts who think the Skins should offer Cousins a long term deal are very clear that he has to clean up the RZ issues or it is all smoke and mirrors. All potential with no effect. So you toss a lot of yards. So what? Talk to Matt Ryan about that over the last couple of years. The bottom line is you have to get the ball into the EZ and score to win games. You have to be able to pass effectively within the 15-20 yard line. Cousins has to settle down in big games and gut them out and he has not shown that. He is a nervous dude in big games. I mean I get it, and I understand the desire to lock Cousin's into a LTD, and hope Doctson, Crowder, Pryor and Reed take him over the hump, but what I don't get and I will never get is making Cousin's out to be someone he is simply not. Lies. Damn Lies and Statistics. Yeah I bet he had more rushing TD's then Brady the 39 year old. But who wins games when they are on the line? When Cousin's is able to gut out the big ones I will eat humble pie and shut the hell up. But until then I think we have Matt Ryan's little brother at QB.
