  1. Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Yep. And when you get a real NT in a 3-4, it's amazing how much of a difference it makes. Not that I've been screaming for one since we made the switch like 9 years ago or anything........
  2. Who should be Starting RB in 2018??? (Public Poll)

    Ok, I'm a bit conrfused, maybe it's the wording. Dalvin Cook missed a year. Guice will miss a year. The only difference is that Guice had what was reported as a hyperextention his last year at LSU, and he played through it. Played in 12 games, so, I'm not sure what the big difference is, unless it's the injury that didn't keep him out of anything in 2017. And if that's the case, you have to blame the LSU staff then, for not diagnosing it correctly, or something. Like I said I'm not sure what you are trying to say in the bolded part. Anyways, like I said, I think Guice will be ok. Kid is a very hard worker, we have Dr. Andrews doing the surgery, and he's one of the best. I think he will be 100% next year, so I'm looking at a 1 year rental, not a replacement for Guice. I could be wrong, he might end up like Willis McGahee. But I don't think it will. But that's just my instinct on this. As for the staff, I don't think they gave Gruden anything, there was no report to my knowledge on what happened until the next day. Just Guice saying he was ok, and we thought that if he said he was "ok" that he was.
  3. Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    I'm not as sold on Lanier as everyone else is, because he's still not very good against the run. He needs to up his game there, to be a 3 down DE for us. Settle has flashed though, and I like what I see from him. As for the OLB, yes, I think we have one of the better pairs. Smith I'd like to see step it up, because I think he can be better, but Kerrigan has been really good, and consistent for us. Some other guys have stood out to me as well. Martel Spaight kills people. When he hits them, they stay hit, if you know what I mean, and he hits people a lot. I think he's put on like 15 pounds (I think he is listed around 250 now) and it's almost funny to see what happens to people when he hits them. Shawn Dion Hamilton has shown some good thing, but he did miss a couple tackles tonight. But I have seen him around the ball a lot. He can run, which is a good thing, we have a lot of thumpers like Spaight and Foster, not so man guys that can run with RB's. I think Trey Quinn sticks, and it might be because of special teams. He's been good in punt returns.
  4. Who should be Starting RB in 2018??? (Public Poll)

    Which is why I said I might bring Lacy in to see what kind of shape he is in. We are on the same page here. Oh, and I get it. I understand why you're thinking about making the trade. I just think Guice will be ok. And I don't think we'd be calling him "done". Nobody is calling Dalvin Cook "done", and he had the same thing happen last year. Generally, having a ACL when you're young is not the dagger in the career it used to be, even for a running back. I think Guice will be fine. The science behind that surgery is so much better now. In fact, if it's true that his injury is due to not getting anything done to his knee last year, and they clean everything up now, it might be in better shape than it was before. Call it a "feeling", but I'm not worried about Guice coming back. That said, if I thought he wasn't going to be back 100% I'd be thinking the same way you are. And to be blunt there really isn't a RB left in FA that is worth anything. I'd be looking hard at the final cuts for one.
  5. Honestly, the whole thing with Perine is kinda a non-issue to me. Yeah, it was nice that he had a hole, and he ran through it. But damn, for such a big man, he went down too easy, again. Even with that attempted straight-arm, he got taken down hard. And twisted his ankle. and outside of that one run, the rest of the backs looked terrible, except for Carter who had the best 2 runs of the night by far. The problem is he might not even make the PS, he's so low on the depth chart. I don't put all the blame on the RB's either, our run blocking, again, has been pretty poor. Unless there is a big upgrade, we're going to be in the lower 3rd or 4th in rushing again.
  6. Who should be Starting RB in 2018??? (Public Poll)

    First, I don't think we made the wrong choice with Guice, and I think he'll be fine. Second, I'm not really looking to trade, mostly because I'm looking for a RB for 1 year only. Ok, to the FA's available. Tolbert is more of a FB and is 32, I pass on him. Peterson and Charles are over 30, have ACL's , and have been going downhill. Pass on those. Lacy, I might bring in to see what kind of shape he's in.

    Payne looks like he is going to be a ****ing monster. I mean, he was so good, he made Ziggy Hood look pretty good at DE All kidding aside, I loved how he stuffed the run, AND got after the QB. He, Allen and Matty I are going to be nasty.

    The 2018 season is not over year. In fact, it hasn't even started. We should wait and see if we're better off, about the same, or worse after the season. Overlooked? Cousins threw for almost 5k that season, and Matt Jones had a 4.6 ypc. And I don't see anyone wanting Jones back. All that aside, that's a pretty fair point. The only question is Kelly the same back. I would say "no", but not in necessarily in a bad way. He's been nicked since then, but he's dropped weight and is in better shape. He might have more burst. We already know he runs hard. Could he be a better back? Yes, he could. Will he be good enough to give us the rushing attack we're going to need to be a "good' team, and at least be in the division race? I don't know. I'm not real optimistic about it, but it is possible.
  9. Congrats! That's a really tough one, glad you have been able to stay off them. I've heard quitting smoking is extremely difficult.

    Im assuming you're never heard of "game shape"
  11. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Nope, I'm saying that guys going down with shoulders, ankles, and general bumps and brusies (like Doctson and his heal) Won't get them as badly, or as often. Reading comprehension 101. I'll also note you don't have a reason for why we're always around the league leaders in the injury dept. Or do you deny that? You are aware of that, right? Thoughts?
  12. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    There IS a pattern. The pattern being that the teams is one of the most injured teams every year for the last several years. You can argue the WHY and HOW, but you can't argue the pattern. It's there. Random luck does not great trends or patterns.
  13. Guice. Last year, when Guice was banged up, and his OL was banged up, he was pretty good, even if it was a down year for him. And once he gets to the 2nd level, he's more dangerous than Kelly could ever dream of being. Guice not only has great vision, can find a crease and exploit it and then explode. Kelly, can't do it. Guice will make more out of less. So, even if Kelly has better, more consistent holes, Guice wins.

    Seriously, get over yourself. If you don't agree with my stance, refute it. But it's usually works out better if you have something to back it up with. Right now, you just "say stuff". I haven't seen anything facts related to back up anything you've stated, and your logic seems very flawed to me. Here's a news flash ( to use your words), if you're not used to getting hit, your get hurt when you do. When you're used to getting hit, you don't get hurt as badly, or as often. It's like being out in the sun. If you're out there every day, you get used to it. If you're not, and all of a sudden need to be, it kicks your ass. See how the logic works? So, what's your hypothesis on why we have so many injuries, compared to the rest of the NFL every year?
