  1. Redskins vs. Jets Game Thread - Preseason Game II/2018

    No, I didn’t. But Fox and Elway were in place for the Tebow season. And even if your predecessor architects it, you still don’t really want to give up on a 1st round pick that actually was winning games that quickly. I give Elway a lot of credit to know that Tebow was smoke and mirrors, and discount the record, and sign a guy who couldn’t actually throw a football when he was signed. worked out really well.

    It’s a pity Phil Simms isn’t calling this game. I can hear it now... “You know Greg, I’m a real fan of this guy Sims. Sims is a great name for a football player. I was a player once named Simms, you know. I even played in a Super Bowl. Maybe I could have thrown the ball to Sims, and it would have been Simms to Sims. That would have been great. But he pays for the Red-wait! I’m not supposed to say the name... the team from Washington. And I played for ... wait, one second, it will come to me. Anyway. Wouldn’t that be cool? Simms to Sims...”

    Seriously...

    If not, Carolina should sign him to stock up on Cam’s...

    It really was complicated. Tebow was also a #1 pick, which the Broncos traded up for. And he had an 8-5 record, and beat the Steelers in an overtime playoff game. A lot of GM’s would at least ride if out another season. Even if you KNOW that Tebow wasn’t any good, it’s tough to give up on a first round QB with a winning record and a playoff win regardless who it is.

    More like 4’s and 5’s.

    It’s going to lose everybody a lot of games. But ESPN will only highlight the terrible calls against the cowboys.

    That was a “I don’t know what the rule actually means” call...
  9. Redskins vs. Jets Game Thread - Preseason Game II/2018

    In fairness, Elway made a brilliant and in the moment interesting call to dump Tebow after an 8-5 record and a playoff win and sign Peyton Manning coming off of neck surgery. That was more complicated than it seems in hindsight...

    Didn’t we give up like 7 spots in the 6th round of 2034 for him? I really thought the happy meal for my daughter cost more...

    And I feel awful for him about how Baltimore screwed him. If he’s the #2 in Indy, I’ll say the same thing when he was the #2 here last year: it limits the offenses explosiveness, and will not help open run game and interior pass game. He doesn’t require safety help, teams play him straight up, so he doesn’t pull coverage and make players around him better. He he needs to be the third guy who can take advantage of matchups. I like him in that role. We’ll see....

    I thought that was a very reasonable response, myself.
  13. Redskins vs. Jets Game Thread - Preseason Game II/2018

    Aye. That was so close.
  14. Redskins vs. Jets Game Thread - Preseason Game II/2018

    Yeah, I completely agree. I also think that Gruden/Smith could make this group effective. The question really is the ceiling. And that depends so much on unknowns. How good can Doctson be, and can he stay healthy. And how good is Richardson with a more traditional QB? It's possible that in year 3 for Doctson and with a QB who can see the field better for Richardson, they could be really good. But it's completely unknown. However, there's no question that there is more talent. As much as Gruden loved Grant, he just didn't have the physical tools to be a starter.
