  1. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    And this is the reason Doctson is not on the field IMO. I started to think about this when Gruden brought up "practicing" last week regarding Doctson for him to get on the field during game day. What Gruden should have said honestly was for Doctson to be considered as a target on game day he and Cousin's must practice together during the week. I think for Cousins it appeals to his obsessive compulsive comfortability bull **** and Gruden simply places a very high priority on practicing regardless of the talent level of the player. He does make exceptions like he did for Jackson when he was with the Skins but he has been in the league for years and has established himself as a unique talent. And so until Doctson works out his soft as puppy **** issues and practices he is not going to play. And it sucks because I think he is an exceptional talent. And this is why the pro bowl practicer Ryan Grant has been targeted often in both games. And he has done okay but he is not of the caliber of Doctson IMO.
  2. How is it overblown? Typically players do not go on and on to that degree. They make a few nice comments out of respect and move on. Many of the players were high on him especially Cousin's and the O line but I never thought they were that enamored. No one has to go on the way they did. Hell I picked the Skins to win this weekend but now I am not so sure...... Look the Cousin's supporters are very sensitive to anything negative about him. But it very possible that McVay knew how to get the best out of Cousin's similar to how little boy Shanny got the best out of he who should not be named.
  3. After reading this article and reflecting on some of these posts McVay sounds like a cross between Yoda and THE QB Whisperer. I mean Goff looked like a bust last year IMO the few times I watched him and now he looks fairly competent. Cousin's looks like a spiral of anxiety. Just what some of the Skins players said in the article is concerning. Why the heck didn't we promote him to HC and send Gruden packing? That is the young Gibbs if you ask me. Damn.
  4. Redskins vs Rams Prediction Thread: Possible Gauntlet March?

    He was cut. The lowly Colts picked him up.
  5. Redskins vs Rams Prediction Thread: Possible Gauntlet March?

    Our D is very improved from last year and our D did play with emotion in the last game. I will tell you which unit was flat and played like marshmallows? Our O line. I want to give Williams a big hamburger and tell him to lay off the vegan diet. He seems to be gassed out there. And Scheff (sp) looked like crap and the others played like they usually do. A bit mixed - some good, some bad. The O line needs to play like they did last year IMO if we are going to win. And Cousin's plays with a lot of emotion - mostly fear...LOL! until he gets in a rhythm.
  6. Redskins vs Rams Prediction Thread: Possible Gauntlet March?

    People are losing their minds in this thread. The Colts are the new Browns this season. There is no way you can decide the Rams are world beaters given the awful Colts product that has been put on the field on both sides of the ball for YEARS especially their atrocious O line and secondary. They are total trash and when Luck returns he will be running for his life again. Waste of talent if you ask me. Only a few things need to happen for us to win. The D plays like they did last week; Cousin's gets a pocket to throw from so he does not throw off of the back of his foot and sail balls out of sheer terror; And we MUST establish a run game to take pressure off of Cousin's. I say start Perine. Go no huddle, and have Cousin throw some quick releases involving everyone including Doctson and Davis and don't unload the deep ball until you are in rhythm. This game IMO win or lose is going to come down to Gruden. He has to know he has a tense QB who takes time to settle down. Call an appropriate offense to match the strengths and weaknesses of your QB and we win. Good coaches like all good bosses get the best out of their employees by accentuating their strengths. Do you know McVay used to talk to Cousin's a lot even when he was coming up to the LOS? And Gruden does not. Good coaches adjust to their personnel. The reason people think McVay and boy Shanny are such great OC's is because they know how to adjust to the QB based upon their strengths and weaknesses and that is exactly what Gruden has to do here with Cousin's who seems to be a little head case of obsessive compulsive tendencies.

    Our D keeps us in the game. The O line provides better pass protection, Perine debuts and does very well, Cousin's gets in a rhythm even hitting Doctson in the EZ and the Skins win 24 - 17.
  8. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    I am not concerned about our receiving corp at all. This is a strong corp group but they were not utilized properly yesterday. Cousin's really needs to distribute the ball better IMO. When I was watching Rodgers yesterday he was delivering short slants, chipping his way up the field against a stout Seattle D using ALL his receivers. But nothing deep, nothing fancy. That is not hard to do even for an average QB. I mean he really dinked and dunked his way up the field. The Skins have to stop with the deep passes and bombs until Cousin's gets his damn timing down and the run game established. That is on Gruden. And if they did some short passes to say Davis and Reed and Crowder it would take a bit of pressure off of the O line and Cousin's. And then you have to bring Doctson in and deliberately target him to see what they have with him. Mix it up. Grant actually surprised me on a few catches yesterday. And Pryor actually did okay yardage wise and IMO he is going to be fine. And if Cousin's delivers the ball accurately yesterday we would have won. I really think we are going to come out strong this week and have a good game on both sides of the ball. If this does not embarrass and pump Cousins up nothing will. I think this is correctable BUT the flat starts need to stop and Cousin's needs to get his nerves, or whatever the hell it is corrected.
  9. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    He is a "robot" but that is what people with obsessive compulsive tendencies are. They are robotic and when they lose structure/control they do not improvise they digress. The truth is the O line did not offer decent pass protection and he never quite got into a consistent rhythm and he never settled down. I only saw a glimpse of rhythm in the middle part of the game when we ran more. But in typical Redskin's fashion they abandoned something that worked. I have never been a Cousin's supporter. He does not have the "it" factor because he does not improvise, seems like a nervous guy on the big stage/big moments. Learning to run for your life does not count but i am glad he took off a few times in the game yesterday. The O line sucked yesterday and were beat bad, which really threw Cousin's off - very similar to the preseason I agree with the comparison. Alex Smith's RZ percentage was 7th worst in the league last year BUT they did something about it in the draft by getting a very good RB in Kareem Hunt. You need the weapons. With the exception of Thompson our RB's are not good enough. I think I would roll with Perine this week and see how he does in live action. Cousin's has never demonstrated the ability to settle down and consistently seize the big moments. Getting the ball in the EZ when you visit the RZ IS the big moment IMO in every game and he is not good at it. I don't give a **** about yardage. Get the ball in the damn EZ.
  10. Eagles Redskins Post Game Assessments

    Absolutely true about Cousins. He does not handle big games well or pressure. And because his prior OC knows his weaknesses next week is going to be another tough outing for him. Keeping him confused and rushed so he cannot establish a rhythm something that is crucial for Cousin's obsessive compulsive tendencies.
  11. And there in OUR stadium there are louder cheers for the Eagles TO! Nice.
  12. Very ****ty call by the Eagles....Thankfully
  13. With that ****ty ****ty start I will take it.
  14. Now would be the time to get Doctson in the game.
  15. Absolutely. Does not matter about the personnel. Missed tackles. Stupid penalties. INT"s at the worst possible time.
