  1. Ranked 24th after the Week 1 loss to Philly Now at #17 after win over the Rams. It might be fun to watch how this yo-yo's all year
  2. ..like Scotty McGem "left" to clean out his Grandmas attic. I see a potential loophole
  3. Best of luck to you guys this week

    Don't let the Yankee give you the wrong impression. There's more Hunting, farming, Copenhagen ringed Redskin fans than you might imagine.
  4. So if he "retires", he owes the Redskins approx $1 Mill in salary repayment, but if he expressed a desire to return and the 'Skins said "no thanks, maybe next year" are they essentially releasing him for the year and Su'a still gets his contracted salary?? I don't see the NFLPA, ,Mara, and Su'as agent just letting our decision allow us to retain his rights and yet get our salary room back. Teams would be using this loophole left and right.
  5. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I appreciate the response. I'm not an ex-QB, nor anything nearly as well schooled as you in QB evaluation. I dig your well-worded explanation of what you see in the kid, and what I may be misreading in the highlights. I just never saw him "look-off" his receiver and the corresponding coverage, but again, I did notice how well he kept his eyes downfield even with pressure engulfing him. I regard that as an admirable trait that's difficult to coach. "Cool under fire" if you will.

    The kid has an arm for sure, but after the first 5 clips, I could predict exactly where he was going to throw it. He stares down every target. He does however seem to excel in keeping his eyes downfield under pressure.

    Its always nice when opposing fans come here and make a thoughtful and civil post. It's hard for me to disagree with much of what you posted about your teams strengths and weaknesses. The 2017 Skins are a team in transition, but I'm not quite sure what we're transitioning to... (yet) We lost at home to a division rival and y'all spanked a falling team, just like good teams should. So it's hard for me to peg the Rams quite yet, but unless there's a sudden resurgence in our overall play, I'd suspect your predicted outcome is spot on. If we don't win this game, I suspect quite a few on here will be hoping for a downward spiral in order to draft our next QB. Hoping for an injury free game on both sides.
  8. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    He either went blind, or he misunderstood the Dr telling him he had an astygmatism since 5th grade. Story is still out on that one..
  9. Press Release: #REDSKINS Quotes - Gruden

    Hmmm, interesting signing with Balducci. A ho-hum NoseTackle in college in Oregon, yet Chip Kelly signed him (49ers) and immediately converted him into a Center.
  10. How many more games in 2016 did we need to win to make the playoffs? I think we all also need to remember that Week 1 losses count just as much against you as those in Week 18.
  11. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I bet if we played some of the press conferences from Kirks first year we'd likely hear a lot of " I haven't seen the film, but I've got to make better throws" or " I misread the coverage, but I will learn from this." I admit that I was a lot more forgiving then than I am now 4 years later. Either he is not as cerebral as I gave him credit for, or Gruden stinks at developing his Qbs. I'm inclined to believe that 80% of this problem lies with Kirk. Regardless of coaching, he could have taught himself by now. He's an OK QB, but now I'm starting to think that we deserve better than paying him what he's actually worth. I want a good QB, and would be OK with paying that guy market value. I don't want a bargain, I want a winner.
  12. Bill Callahan and the Offensive Line

    I'm getting the very same vibe. Chase has worked with the "ones" for the past 2 weeks. He started our last PS game. This will be the best opportunity to allow him to continue to gel with his fellow OL. Long is coming off a 2 week post procedural rest and is just starting to do individual drills. Start Chase. See what we have. If the game seems too big for him after the first quarter, then bring Long in. There will not be a better opportunity to see what our future looks like than this weekend.
  13. Nice read. I like our Coach
  14. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    I believe Orakpo received franchise tag salary his last year here (I could be wrong, my rememberer is sporadic) but Orakpo is earning more then the 3 of Smith, Murphy and Gallette combined! It would foolhardy for us to pay him 4-8 times what his replacements are earning.
  15. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    I've been wrong before, but I get the feeling that Su'a isn't the type to hide his personal life a lot. If he has family/health/relationship/etc issues, I think he would be the first to post them on his social media accounts. Not a knock on him, Some people just feel a need to disclose that kind of stuff. I really don't think that he's taking a few weeks off to help Scotty McGem setle his grandmothers affairs. I think he has lost his desire to do this work thing. Perhaps he'll get through it. If so, I'm sure he'll post it on instagram
