  1. 2018 Draft Day Thread

    Love how Verizon is trolling AT&T with all their commercials. Serves Jerrah right.

    Who was the Nebraska RB that used to be a RB? He wore 29.

    Makes me doubt McCloughans "prowess" as a a hotshot, savant personnel expert. I hear Jay had a lot to do with selection last year and this year. Along with Kyle Smith. And let's not overlook the fact that the Browns, with Scott M on board, drafted Mayfield. Who I believe is just another Johnny football who'll discover quickly that he's not as tough or as fast as he thinks he is. Not giving BA any credit whatsoever (except for Jay). He needs to focus on the new stadium and stay away from football decisions.

    Don't underestimate the importance of special teams. Which has been awful for too long. If this kid can turn into a good kick/punt coverage gunner and maybe even a returner (desperate for a good one) then it was a fourth round pick that was well spent. Any depth he provides in the secondary would be a bonus considering where he was picked. In free agency, smart teams look for a proven performer. In the draft you are always gambling on a players potential. When you're in the fourth or below then that's the perfect time to go for a guy that can be great rather than a guy who fills a need.

    Lucky for him he has a position coach in Gray who is very strong in teaching fundamentals and technique. I think too many people give too much credit to the development of players like Nicholson and Fuller and not enough to Gray. He's made a big difference in the secondary. It's rare now that you see receivers running wide open as they would in the past. Obviously, Gray saw something he liked in the kid. I trust his judgment.
  7. Wrong! Because every team needs a QB and coaches have huge egos. They all believe they can coach up a player better than the previous coach. Happens all the time. Hence the reason that Hoyer, Osweiler, Gabbart, Savage, Fitzgerald, etc keep getting jobs. Kirk is better than all of them so somebody would have given up more than a 3rd rounder for Kirk. If you don't believe so then you've been poisoned by the koolaide that Dan and Bruce have been serving for years.
  8. Remember that when all the Redskins get is a 2019 compensatory 3rd rounder and you want to blame Kirk for it. Myself and many others were smarter than our brainless FO. Kirk would have at least been a tradeable asset if he bombed and we knew he needed to be locked up in a LTD. A first rounder can be worth more than millions of dollars if you get the right guy. Essentially, the Redskins gave up two third rounders this year to fix a problem they created. (I'm being generous because Fuller is probably at least worth a 2nd rounder based on performance now). Next year let's hope that compensatory pick will be made by someone other than Bruce Allen. Not to mention building the roster. Because he has proven that he is not very smart when it comes to "business negotiations."
  9. $9 for one bud light. Old airplane peanuts. Six Flags and Johnny Rockets fiascos. Pretending to let football people run the Redskins. Let's not forget how Dan came to be rich. It was primarily via Telemarketing. Calling people and switching their phone plans without their approval.
  10. I won't quit. But my kids? They're wondering what the hell I ever saw in the Redskins. I will do my part by speaking up and keeping my $ from going into Dan's pockets until I see real change. Told my kids not to by me anything Redskin's related. Not even paper plates!
  11. LOL I thought the same thing. Carex really got butt hurt when the truth about the FO is revealed.
  12. Still waiting on Salisbury to walk naked from Bristol CT to DC after he swore that Joe Gibbs wouldn't lead the Redskins to the playoffs. It also goes further in that. Salisbury has always been a Redskin's hater and anyone who takes anything he says about the Redskins seriously is not "super smart." http://www.nytimes.com/1993/01/03/sports/sports-of-the-times-joe-gibbs-knows-how-to-roll-the-playoff-dice.html
  13. EXACTLY!! Hell, on this board alone every interception was an indictment on Kirk's future earning potential. He knew about that.and it clearly affected him. Then, he does what people want. Only he and Bibbs wanted to win the last game vs the Giants. Could have checked it down and called it a day but tried to make a play and threw a pick. Then everyone piled on . Damned hypocrites if you ask me.
  14. Seriously? Why the pessimism? Is it not as plain as the nose on your face? The Redskins had ZERO concept as to the potential value of a QB who had been in their building and on their field for 3 years and at the end of 2015 didn't have the common sense to lock up Cousins to at least protect their investment in the future. QB's who have had even average success in a QB starving league hold some value. They had no idea what they were looking at and no foresight and subsequently pissed away any leverage they had by guessing wrong after 2015. Doubling down on their bad analysis after 2016. And finally crapping out at the end of 2017. Your remark about Sudfeld does not help your position either way. If he sucks then they were once again wrong about a player's NFL potential; as they were wrong about RG III. If Sudfeld goes on to have a great career then that's even worse! They let him go to a division rival for nothing! Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder have been the puppet masters behind the McFlabb disaster, RG III trade that crippled the defense for years, the Kirk fiasco where the team could have at least got a 1st round pick but will now have to settle for a 3rd round compensatory pick, then they surrendered a valuable 3rd rounder this year for an older, weaker armed version of Kirk who has had limited success in the playoffs. And btw, once again they tried to fix the QB dilemma at the expense of the defense (Kendall Fuller). Your comment about Jay has no real bearing on the issue. He doesn't make the decisions. That's Dan and Bruce. But since you brought him up, what was Jay's number one complaint about Kirk this season? It was that he didn't go down field enough to give receivers opportunities to make plays; although if I was Kirk I wouldn't trust them either. Even Kansas City fans will tell you that Alex Smith is not a down the field type of QB. He often gets nervous in the pocket and will not keep his eyes down the field. This past year was an outlier. Top 10 running game and a healthy TE to occupy defenders in the middle of the field helped him hit on some deep play action. Unless there are some dramatic changes he won't have either with the Redskins in 2018. Jay is biding his time to go and be the OC for his brother. He'll get paid $5mil this year and get the hell away from this clown circus.
